Oh thank god, I'm not last any more!

And at least half of those cryptic tips just go wooosh over my head.

I'm putting my resume in for Channel 7, how do you think I would go?

It all kicks off on Friday Night
When a win for the Bulldogs might actually be in sight

Provided that Ash cloud Blows away
Buddy and his Boys will have a field day
The goldie boys should stay away

Same Goes for the clash between the Bombers and Roos
This is one game hirdys boys can't afford to lose

Lions and Tigers on S'atday Night
Tigers to get up, but it shall be tight

Saints and Cats what a game that shall be
Even with Sellwood out on report (Who even knew that was legal)
The Cats will win, like that grand final against Port

Melbourne and Freo early sunday
Demons to make a mends for Queens Birthday

Carlton and Sydney no sure who'll win
Juddy doesn't care
he's got another brownlow
At this point of the season who knows how far carlton'll go

West Coast and Port to finish the round
The weagles will smash them all over the ground

So the pies they have the bye again
Just so everyone can have two weeks of footy that they can all enjoy
The pies can't win
so you can all rejoice

Nice poetry there, Daniel.

Bonnie, I hope you were quite drunk when you posted those picks.

Sadly not, since I don't drink on weeknights nowadays. I pretty much just wrote the dumbest names I could think of*. But I'm sure the hands of Dionysos helped provide them in the back of my mind.

*actually, I think I prefer "fermantel" and "prit pow".

I'd stop blaming the coach and start looking for some players who can go the distance and, well, get substantial results for the coach.

Yep. It's down to the players on the field, not just the man calling out the shots. The Crows have rebuilding to do over the next couple years, but I don't expect them to completely bottom out.

Honestly Vlad, I think it's getting pretty lazy to blame the coach. The players are clearly the problem; Adelaide started so well in the first quarter, and then just kept fading and fading. That's not the coach's fault; the players just seemed to completely lose their intensity and their way, since they were all over the Dogs in the first and some of the second quarter. What happened to the team that beat Hawthorn in the first round?!

how long has the coach been in charge? if the playing group is his selected squad, it might be right to ask some questions.

Some of the blame has to be levelled at Neil Craig for sure, just not all of it.

Since mid-2004, only two preliminary finals to show for it in amidst failed finals campaigns when we were in positions to win (2007 Hawthorn, 2008 Collingwood, 2009 Collingwood). The game has passed him by it seems and he keeps on picking players that continually prove that they're not up to it. There's also the problem of recruiting last year's Essendon midfield coach who has destroyed our midfield this year.

True. I've said this many times, I have nothing against the man and definitely not the vitriol to the level of many supporters. I don't really feel like blaming anything on injuries.

Also, I can't believe how almost everytime Tippett gets molested in the contest yet only rarely has a free kick paid to him. He'd be kicking 60+ goals a season with good delivery and non-discrimination from the umpires.

Do you REALLY think the umpires collectively have it in for him? Honestly, I think that's a pretty lazy argument. Perhaps an individual or two, but in general?

It's ridiculous, but you'd be surprised at how true this is. At the end of '09, the AFL started a crackdown on "diving", in which Tippett was one of the apparent offenders. Since then, he gets molested in every contest by two or more defenders and the umpires are very strict on him. Actually, a month or so ago the club sent the AFL a video detailing said contests and everything.

I should stop whining about my club now. Let's talk about everyone elses.
