Don't apologise to me, I don't expect to get close to winning by a long shot.

A lot of the old stuff he talks about is still in the SANFL to an extent, and I imagine the other state leagues. I was surprised by how much I was enjoying watching the Eagles/Centrals game on the weekend compared to the AFL matches, not that it was a particularly good game, but it was more flowing, more traditional. No boring ass strategies and invasive rules. I've no doubt that country footy is even better still.

Fact is, AFL was better ten-fifteen years ago. Not even looking through rose-tinted glasses or anything, I've been watching older footage, and it's there. That's the game I grew up loving, not whatever the hell it's turning into now.

Yeah. I don't necessarily buy into this "go back to the 70s type thing", because surely the game is better to watch now in terms of skills. A lot of players from bygone eras wouldn't have a chance of bring drafted today. But country footy, at least good country footy - cos the bad stuff is disgusting to watch - can be great. Better contests, no subs/continual interchange, scuffles, big grabs.

Scott Pendlebury = GWS in 2013. You read it here first.

Geelong
Melbourne (Hopefully)
Freo - Usually play AAMI alright. Plus Port suck
Brisbane - They gotta win this one, Brown is back.
Richmond (hopefully)
Collingwood - Should win by plenty if they put time into Adelaide, if we turn up and play as bad as last week it could be very close
Sydney - Just cause I think Hawthron are overrated, and Swans love the SCG.
West Coast - Should be too good at home. Despite the dogs having some good form last week.

Picking Richmond against 3rd on the ladder? That's bold.

Admittedly, this is one of those games where I have somewhat divided loyalties. I want Essendon to win, but I'd be pretty happy for the Tigers if they got up.

Hows that fence your sitting on there ax?

I think Richmond are a good chance this week, I've picked them just to try and get some roughies at work tipping. Essendon are the likely victor though.

Haha, the fence is lonely, because I've hopped off and - if the game's on telly - I'll definitely be barracking for Essendon to win.

But like I say, if the result goes the other way, it'd be hard to be unhappy. Maybe I'd skip to the other side of the fence for a few minutes or something.

I still can't get over the fact that there is a PE Teacher at my school called Neil Craig.

The world will have ended, and you can't prove him wrong.

Geelong
St Kilda (no Jamar factor)
Sydney
North Melbourne
Essendon (dunno why. It's obviously not my preferred result, and the lack of Watson means that they've lost their outright best player. And no Hocking - whoever he is)
Fremantle (big game from Pav)
Carringbush
West Coast (should be at the WACA ground for old time's sake)
