The Official 2007 AFL Season Thread!!!

It may be a little early, I'll admit, but I am beginning to get quite excited about this upcoming season of football. I've tired of the cricket, namely because England have been so pathetic, and even when Austalia are 6/7 they still win. Anyway.

So what will happen this season? Can West Coast win back-to-back premierships and become the most successful non-Victorian team in the history of the AFL? Or will Syndey bounce back? Can Geelong and St. Kilda, the two Victorian sides who were out hopes in '06 deliver? Can the Western Bulldogs progess deeper into September? Can Essendon deliver stawlart James Hird the finish he is hoping for?

Only time will tell, but here's hoping the mighty Cats have a much better year in '07.

Engage discussion.

I was thinking of starting this one yesterday!

I am going to SPIT if West Coast take it out again! Especially if we (Sydney) meet them in the GF. I have high hopes for Sydney this year.

This is the tipping comp I have been in the last few years which Shika and Daniel suggested they might like to join as well. I hope everyone else would like to, too. It ends up quite large, I think there were around 4,800 members last year.

www.oztips.com is the general address which you can sign up through if you're new to oztips.

"shut up! footy's on the radio!"

AFL, already!!!

C'mon, we've got the A-League finals to sort out before then! Go Victory!

The mighty swans will be thereabouts again this season, as will the Eagles and the Saints. Freo and Adelaide might drop off a bit this year, but Neil Craig is a master coach who has been pretty much the sole reason for Adeliade's resurgence in recent years.

Probably, and hopefully, Collingwood and Essendon will be shite again, and here's hoping Footscray can secure a spot in the top four for playing exciting footy in the midfield. Brisbane Lions will be shite also, cause they've got barely any quality players left (or fully fit).

I predict another dull season, with the only highlight being the awesomeness that is the West Coast vs. Sydney rivalry. If the AFL wants to make footy a more viable, they should kick out all 14 other clubs and just have 15 matches a year between the Eagles and the Swans...

I looooove that thinking! NSW needs to fuck off this rugby league bullshit and concentrate on the beautiful game of AFL. All this state needs is football (soccer) and AFL.

So who's joining the oztips comp? My username is Jesus Online. If you join, share what your name is so we can watch how we all do!

Hell year - football and AFL are all AUSTRALIA needs!!

Anyhow, FWIW - This year is going to be the year of the Crows - no doubt about it!! I have a feeling Craigy would have been really pissed off that we fell that one week short last year and will be firing up the boys for revenge!!!

Lol I contribute that to the fact that the cricket has become to predictable to watch. I thought when the Pommies had us 5 for 2 they might have a chance, but apparently Michael Hussey just cannot be dismissed. What a cricketer!

I'm in a pretty good mood, too. I just picked up the WITS single with Kite (poke in the eyes) and Zoo Station and Dark Side of the Moon. JTBATC stay tuned.

Go the Cats!

PS Did anyone read about Carlton today? Apparently it's merge, move interstate or bust!

I'll join that tipping comp. My name is Papatron. Everyone else's?

Angela Harlem, to get into that comp, do you need the OzTips Comp# and the Password? Because all that link does is take me to This Page.

OzTips AFL Fans (#84794)

That's apparently the draw? Are you a member yet? I simply clicked through the codes until I got to one which said public comp under the AFL tab. So just start by finding the AFL tab, it will ask you to log in or register, then it's (if I recall correctly) a blue hyper-link for the comp. I can't access it now as I have joined it, it seems.
The sites' main page is www.oztips.com and that should have this blue hyperlink in an orange kind of table down the right hand side? Or else just navigate through the AFL tab along the top.

Ohhhhhhhh hopefully the Bombers will pull their collective heads out of their arses this season and actually win some games. I can but hope. If not - being a temporary Sydneysider (Melbourne is home, Sydney is... here) I would be happy for a Swans win.

Swans VS Bombers at the G at the end of September -
