Hah, no, it's nothing obvious at all. If anyone were to guess it without me informing them whatsoever, I would assume they are some really clever stalker, or a hacker who got lucky and opened the right file on my hard drive. Don't ask me where I came up with Axver initially, all I know is it was somewhere in my seven year old imagination! I've always been a writer, and in the main story I've worked on for ten years now, some of the lead characters (those I'm most attached to) have the last name of Axver. I don't know what prompted me to use it online, but now it's stuck and I use it everywhere.

(And for the record, I don't know if I'm going to the grand final now ... eh, this has turned into a mess ...)

Oh, Victoria is slowly coming to the realisation that it's not the be all and end all of AFL. That being said, I think it wouldn't be right to move the Grand Final from the MCG [not that that's gonna happen, at least not for another 30 years...].

It'll be an interesting feel to be in Melbourne on Grand Final day without a Vic team playing, though. I'm quite intrigued about what it'll be like, myself.

Anyway, I hope that if you do end up going you enjoy yourself. :)


...Speaking of obvious screennames. ;)

'Slowly' being the key word there! It's funny the amount of Victorians I meet who hold AFL to a double standard simply because Brisbane's winning. And I really don't see why the grand final shouldn't be held at the venue of the highest-ranked team to make the final. That's how other codes work ...

Sadly, I'm not going now ... I really would have liked to have been in Melbourne to feel the atmosphere, but I guess my mother will have to tell me all about it instead.

I am never hard to guess. I couldn't create a new screen name if I tried.

Ooh yeah, this is going to be a good final, but then again last years match up with Collingwood was supposed to be very close, and we all know how easily the Lions walked all over them. I guess the Lions have the experience of playing these games in their favour, but gee they didnt look that great against Geelong last week. Heres hoping to four in a row for the Lions. I cant wait for Saturday, I will be watching the game at a surf club, on the big screen with lots of mates....

yeah thanks for that!
its a pity Shawn Hart (thats how you spell it right?) will miss this week....hes from where i live, and i think hes a good bloke.

I'm tipping Port in a close one, and brisbane in a one-sided game.
Port By 6

Its going to be close, but I think the experience that Brisbane has of already having played three of these grand finals will help them out, so I am going with Brisbane to get up by 7- 1 goal and 1 behind

A 43 win?


I'm hoping Port win, only cos the Lions have already won so many recently.

I predict a 4 - 3 (27) win to Port.

I hope Brisbane win, because they're not Port.

I don't know how it's going to go through. Brisbane seem to be having a run with injuries, and Port actually made it through to a Grand Final for once instead of bombing out in the first final... technically they're an unknown quantity, because you never really can tell how a team is going to respond to the pressures of a Grand Final.

Just look at what happened to Collingwood. The kids went to pieces. It's entirely possible that the same will happen to Port. But then again, it's also possible that Brisbane will go under the pressure of four Grand Finals straight. Probably not likely, but definitely possible.

Eh. Just rambling.

Now you know why they suck. Actually, I'm not sure which team I dislike more right now.

So. Er... what was the actual score?

I don't think I caught it.
