Swanies should get rid of those dead weights Hall and Everitt, and make a massive move for Fevola and Cousins.

Fevola has said that he wants to stay with Carlton...

Oh my, we're terrible. And to think I was looking forward to this season after the hell of the last year. We deserve the spoon, really...

Vlad, another Adelaidean! Club and suburb, if you don't mind me asking?

First of all, neither of those two are 'dead weights'. Hall is a very good player, who, as Glenn Archer explained, struggles with these mind snaps. All this psychologist crap is bullshit, and he should not have been suspended in my view. He should be playing this week.

Peter Everitt has been injured this year, he is a great ruckman, albeit old, and will be servicable for at least another year yet.

Fevola won't be going anywhere, that was confirmed at the weekend, though he'd better stop pissing everyone off with this dicking around re his contract.

Cousins, if he comes back, will play in Melbourne. I believe that Paul Roos has already said they aren't interested in him.

I feel sorry for you. And Dean Cox, who you can see is visibly hurt at the way his team is playing. I don't know what the mail is over in WA, but surely Daniel Kerr does not want to be there.

I fail to understand however, that a side who were within minutes of making a preliminary final last year, and a team containing 13 premiership players of the calibre Cox, Kerr, Priddis, Rosa, Glass, etc can capitulate to Richmond, who, whilst they are improving, are nothing to shout from the rooftops about. At Subiaco as well.

It was an absolute death trap only two years ago.

I go for the Crows and I live in the western suburbs near the beach.

Looks like Geelong really took it to WB in the last quarter, who would've imagined they'd have originally thump them by 60-odd points .

As for me, I'm looking forward to the big Adelaide showdown, lets hope that Adelaide really humiliate Port .

Wow. We are amazing!

Something weird's happened though. I'm not nearly as passionate about Geelong as I was two years ago. I cried when we lost the prelim to Brisbane in '04. I was tearing my hair out after the win against Collingwood.

And then all of a sudden I lost some passion

Werribee won again yesterday, with Nathan Thompson kicking six goals, and Leigh Brown one of Werribee's best. However, the best part was - wait for it - Werribee had 80 tackles. That's unfuckingbelievable.

And by the way, if anyone sees some juicy odds, let me know, cos I can bet now

I was hardcore about the Bloods back between 99-2001 and then I just lost the passion. 2005 was nice and everything, but it had little meaning for me personally.

imo Geelong should get over Hawthorn comfortably seeing as they thumped WB. And besides, Hawthorn lost to a still-mediocre team in St Kilda (I think they're crap personally)

You can bet 50 bucks on Geelong and Franklin kicking twice as many behinds as goals.

It seems also that Sydney brought back Big Bad Barry Hall, I'm pretty sure he hasn't had enough time on the sidelines with his anger problem. Anyway us Crows have a very good record against them so we can win.

Righty', the Crows (yay) beat Sydney by 30-odd points with sydney kicking 6.17 (I think)

And the tigers pipped the lions, looks like they are making a move to the finals.

Fucking hell, what a win by the Tigers. Maybe I'll start paying more attention to the season or something.

Not to be a fairweather fan, but it's damn hard to initially get into a team when you have no attachment to any in the tournament and the one you arbitrarily chose because their colours are the same as your rugby team (Wellington's yellow and black) is pretty crap and doing nothing to motivate you to care. But that fourth quarter was pretty damn exciting.

Kind of a shame it had to be over Brisbane Fitzroy, ostensibly my second team, but I'll take anything that can get me more into properly following the season rather than just paying attention whenever the mood catches me or when Melbourne catches finals fever.

Funny how the Saints got convincingly beaten by cellar dwellers West Coast and the Bombers destroyed the Pies top 4 hopes.
Somehow opens things up.

My team doesn't deserve to be in the eight right now. We lost to (albeit improving) Essendon....but still!

If we can't get up, or at least Challenge the Hawks (I mean get a bit closer than 70odd Points this time)....we may as well start tanking....

Go The Tigers
