Huh, I haven't watched the Suns play since that first game against Carlton when Ablett was hopelessly ineffective. Good to hear he's coming into some form - the Suns really need him.

Now just hoping Essendon can win interstate and not embarrass themselves against the Lions. Much as I think the Lions deserve a win, I don't want it at our expense! Hopefully they'll get their first win for the year next week against North "Ax finally saw a second 'Roos fan in the wild today" Melbourne.

Oh, and when I was in Queensland last week, I noticed some Suns signage at Nerang railway station on the Gold Coast.

I laughed.

For his sake you'd hope that would be in a couple of years, he won't be playing at his peak level forever.

I've noticed that Karmichael Hunt's improving at a good pace, too.

The only way you'll lose is if you take the game lightly and bounce around as if it's going to be a stroll in the park. Brisbane will likely come out firing early. I wouldn't really be worried though.

And ugh, we've Collingwood next week. The only two things that give us a sniff is that we always give them a red hot crack (despite not beating them since R1 '09) and that they may not be at tip top shape after yesterday, but that's unlikely.

Just hope we don't get completely annihilated.

At this stage I am worried Essendon ARE taking it lightly!

The thing is, I don't think Brissie deserve to be bottom of the table with no wins. They've played well this season - they just can't seem to snare a win somehow.

They've been close a number of times, yes.

And yet again, the Lions can't play four quarters of footy. Great third quarter by the Bombers though; not the prettiest of victories but I enjoyed the result thoroughly!

As I recall, the Lions have had more than a few close games. That's what I really find frustrating, as I've said before.

If I remember correctly, they probably would've beaten Freo if they hadn't copped bad injuries to crucial players at crucial times. Apart from the drubbing they got at the hands of the Bulldogs, none of Brisbane's losses have been by embarrassing margins. I'd say they're better than Port or North, and despite losing to them, I'd still rate the Lions as better than the Suns too.

Next week is Lions vs North, so we'll see if I'm right about them being better. Was confident the Lions would get their first win of the year next week until North did a number on the Demons yesterday.

And the Gold Coast has ANOTHER bye next week, what? Two byes in the first nine weeks of the competition? Christ on a bike, it's not as if they've been playing many of the best teams in those other seven weeks either. Oh well, at least Geelong will rape them on 28/05.

And Gold Coast have both their byes before we even have our first, a fixturing curiousity. I wonder why. Mind you, we play our first nine matches in Melbourne so we've had it pretty comfortable.

No Jamar must have hurt, but the players have let down Bailey again, losing to mediocre opposition. The pressure's back on.

Interesting article by Garry Lyon, of all people, suggesting that Richmond is the only club who wouldn't trade their two leading midfielders (Martin and Cotchin) for Swan or Pendlebury. I'm inclined to agree.

You're telling me! Especially since I have a cold so I can't go and watch it at a pub.

Also: WE WINNING

Other comments - People (especially me) have underestimated the Dogs, nobody (except me) has overestimated the Saints.

I'm unsure of what to think about Fremantle now. Kudos to WCE though, they really don't waste chances.
