A New South Welshman, supporting a West Australian team, living in South Australia, formerly studying in Germany. Unashamedly a Freo fan (and member!). Budding writer, and do a bit of live-blogging.

I’m not doing any other tipping other than this column, Dingo. There is another AD getting around on the forum – so that might be him on the ladder?

Yup.

You’re the only thing worse than a *shudder* Marvel junkie. Damn Avengers release day leaving me all sick of it … before I even get to work.

Learning football at 35: It is possible, and loads of fun too

Fair enough! If I were to follow SANFL I’d probably be a naturalised West Adelaide fan given I live like 2km from where they’re based. I don’t follow state league footy though.

You went Adelaide to Sydney, I went Sydney to Adelaide. But yes, life is a fun thing. Takes you to unexpected places.

It’s a Game of Thrones reference, I believe, Jordan.

Ah, you’re a Port-area kid, are you?

Tennis is a great sport, too. I don’t watch it a whole lot, but I recall ‘playing’ (read: trying to play it) back in WA about eleven or twelve years back. I wasn’t too bad, really, but as with most of my other sporting endeavours it kinda floundered and I eventually just … stopped. My illustrious list of sports-attempted-but-rapidly-stopped includes swimming, soccer, tennis and golf. Huh.

Oh thank the lord, someone else who tips the Blues. My risky tip of the week, they are, and it’ll probably backfire.

Also, nice GoT username, Disnick. Big fan I’m presuming…

Macca, excuse my ignorance on the Blues, but has Lochie O’Brien disappeared from discussion or is that just me not hearing too much about him of late? He seemed very talented when he was picked up but Dow et al. seems to be getting most of the attention.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 5

Yeah, we have a poor record in Adelaide. I just finished organising tickets for me and a (Crows-supporting) mate to head to our game here, so I’m hoping we can do well when we visit.

Gonna be honest, I hadn’t read that he’d explained himself. Must’ve missed that in the busy news cycle of the week.

Completely understand your points, Richie and Cat. Sorry for jumping to evidently unjust conclusions so quickly.

Not arguing he isn’t a champion, Yattuzzi – anyone can see that he is. I was just saying I thought the booing was perfectly fitting to cap off a week where he was exposed as a homophobe.

Obviously didn’t phase him, though. Still performed pretty well today.

Presuming you mean underrated, 13th?

Agree with all your points on Freo. Matera was excellent, Tabs was very fine (if we ignore that miss), and Hogan looked the goods.

Bulldogs, Crows, Richmond, Essendon our next four. 2 from 4 would be good, 3 from four would be ideal.

Yeah, I’d be strongly considering tipping them against the Crows. It does get pretty tough after that though – GWS, Eagles, Collingwood.

#Mundy3Hundy is simply awesome, yes. Props to our media department for that one. On that note Mundy is seriously underrated – still! – and I’m so damn happy to see him run out for the 300th time. Sensational stuff.

Also, props to Hawks supporters to booing Ablett constantly. Might be controversial to say on here, but it’s similar to Josh’s point about racism – and it’s good to see Hawks supporters not standing for that liked post.

What an absolute dream it would be to have Cripps running around in a Freo jumper alongside Fyfe, too.

Would Nat Fyfe and Lachie Neale like to swap spots now?

I gotcha, I was saying “no joke” in a “yeah, isn’t it obvious” kind of tone. Langdon’s certainly improved a lot in the last few years, and it’ll be frustrating as all hell is he departed.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

No joke?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

Most of those should work for him, to be honest. But knowing footy this year they won’t.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

No thanks.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

Yeah, I saw that. Not sure what to make of it now. It’ll be easy for some to antagonise Freo by suggesting it’ll have something to do with [insert generic Freo complaint here]. But I guess it’s a waiting game to see how it plays out.

I’ve got a mature age Labrador who I’ll sign up.

Marnie’s coveting the whole tipping North ground this week! As I said, North is too much of a liability these days to be reliable in tipping ????

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

Unfortunately, I sincerely doubt that’ll occur. I can dream though.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 5

You’ve used that ‘collective minds’ quip like four times this week, my dude. But I can’t really argue. because the Crows are in a bad place at the moment.

At least they should win this week. Should.

The confused, wayward Crows have no connection to their better past

21 isn’t so much as a kid as perfect conditions isn’t so much dewey conditions, my man. Also, I had a decent day, just thought I’d jump in and try and comprehend for myself whatever the hell this thread disintegrated into.
