They're still doing rivalry round? If they still were then wouldn't the Eagles be playing Fremantle this weekend?

I'd rather watch an intense and fiercely fought local derby with a lot of pride on the line beyond just a place on the ladder. Plus Sydney's a team I just cannot give two shits about, and I'm only lukewarm towards Geelong, so it's not a contest I see a substantial degree of interest in. I'll still put it on and (assuming it's not a shit match) enjoy it, but I'd rather watch the Showdown.

Maybe not... I just assumed. Is there a lot of passion in Adelaide at the moment for this game?

My point is that I'm not sure this game will be as intense/fierce/have as much pride on the line as any other game. But I could be wrong.

You could certainly say so, yes.

But both team's supporters are more cynical about the game than bagging each other over who's going to win. Naturally, with Port being 0-3 and Crows dishing up a disappointing performance last week.

Nah, too much effort to be honest. Geelong/Sydney should get me through the evening fine enough.

And I'd just like to say that I think rivalry round is a fair bit of bullshit, trying to cash in on genuine rivalries and sucking the spirit out of them. Just let the genuine rivalry matches happen when they happen rather than trying to manufacture a special week.

I suspect that both the showdown and the derby exert a lot more passion from fans than that Collingwood - Essendon bollocks.

Adelaide, Port, West Coast and Freo are all relatively new teams. The decision to support one of these sides is more likely to be politically motivated, or inspired by a locally relevant cultural attitude, or as a means of resistance to the market entrant (WC/Adelaide). Or even geographical!

Melbourne Heart already have 4000 members in Melbourne, most of those weren't Victory traitors, but were instead people who had been ambivalent to the Melbourne Victory Club and brand since our inception. There is already an intense rivalry between the two clubs, both on and off the field. Dugandzic is gonna cop all sorts of ribbing from Victory fans after his recent transfer to Heart.

Still, Sydney and Geelong is the right match to be screened tonight by TEN. Both clubs ate top four contenders, while Port are almost bottom four certainties and Adelaide seem destined for mid-table mediocrity (despite a quality list).

Really, Channel Seven should be showing the Showdown and abandon the Gold Coast-Melbourne match tomorrow.

The second term once again proves that the Showdown is Port's "Grand Final".

This is the first time I will say that I'm ashamed to be a Crows supporter.

I will stop now.

Happy I tipped Port, that's all I'll say. Also was at the draw today, can't fucking get away from seeing draws lately. 3 in the last 12 months I've been to in person.

One good win isn't exactly a "good start". There'd need to be more than one win to earn the title of having a "good start".

Then there's the issue of Port's duds, doing absolutely nothing for the whole year, playing the games of their lives.

I mean, come on, Westhoff? Are you freaking serious?

It's a much more good start than last year, still!

Yeah, not saying much though if we're going to get the same run of bad results, which looks ever so likely.

Only about 33k at the Showdown, pathetic result. AFL really is in a lot of strife here.

33k? Looked a little better than that. But it was a Port home game.
