I'm as droll as the next guy, but I'm not understanding your Aussie humor here.

Adelaide vs. Port Adelaide.

They are from the same city. Neither have to get on the road.

I was wondering about that when he told me in the car today that it was a road game. Do they use the same stadium though?

Ooohhh... Is that a legitimate rivalry? You mentioned it's the Grand Final for Port. Anything to avoid the wooden spoon at this point would be a big deal, I suppose.

It's called the "Showdown", in Perth the battles between the Eagles and the Dockers are referred to as the "Derby". I say that it is their Grand Final since in that one game, Port play at least 30% better than they do in their whole season. It's the one game that they seem to value the most, whereas we treat it as any ordinary game and consequently get beaten most of the time.

Oh boy, it's gonna be a shitfest for sure, I kind of hope it rains heavily just to see how bad it would get.

essentially, it's pretty manufactured.

Hey, anything to get some life out of those sorry sides is refreshing, manufactured or not. Remind me to keep an eye on the gamecast for that one (not sure how they'll keep tabs on it though; it won't be online, tv or probably radio anywhere).

Eagles vs. Dockers will be awesome but we never get Derbies on FTA.

Good God, I'm going to be up until 7 AM for this Blues/Bombers match. Don't let me down, Carlton.

58 unanswered points! We're mailing it in now though, as always. Our 4th quarters are shit.

Essendon's defense is baaaaaad. They can put up some serious points, but they'll only break even the way they're playing.

I got home and thought "hey, we got through Tulla so quickly that we'll be home in time for at least a full quarter of footy!" Turn on the telly to hear that Essendon were down by just seven at half-time and had been blown away in the third. Thanks for the welcome home, Bombers.

Also, holy shit, one of the Blues made a mark to rival Naitanui's screamer as mark of the year. That was epic.

Did they send out their under-13s or something?

The Andrew Walker mark in question:



Unbelievable. Even better because the game was totally out of hand at that point and he had no reason to throw himself out there like that. I really hope this game is a sign that we do give a shit about finishing top 4; I haven't seen this kind of urgency from Carlton since we stomped Sydney.

Both Carlton/Richmond games were good times.
