Freo was better.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 5

But still…with McPharlin and Johnson and Sandi…and the rest…we’d be premiers.

Can’t see any pertinent argument there, Cat. Do you think Lever and May won’t improve Melbourne?

Melbourne's season is over. Here's what they should do now

That’s not quite how it works.

You, too, can believe the return of Lever and May won’t make a difference. I differ.

WC might just have played better with Barrass against Port, but you could be right, his presence may have had no impact.

I have constantly said that injuries are the ONLY difference.

Duh! Rebound. They play less in the back half.

Ok Dis…they won’t improve things.

Simple solution.

Get Lever and May back and everything will improve. No Melbourne tipsters counted on them not playing.

Has it occurred to you that the Hawks were ” down”, Essendon had a “bad patch”, Melbourne is near the bottom and winning the close one could all be the result of how the Saints are playing?

That’s why we call them ‘wins’.

Do the Saints have your attention yet?

Certainly haven’t yet reached Freo’s level. They got 3 junk time goals in the last 2 minutes to make that game look close.

Freo downed them confortably.

I’m actually on 28. 23 after round 4.

Mind you, I’m not in any Roar tipping comp.

That’s a very well informed guess, O Hairy One. Now is the time to get the money on.

Blakely, Hill, Sandi, Ballas, Logue…AND BENNELL…to return.

Time to celebrate.

Port's best win in years expands the contender circle

Nup. Comfortably top 6.

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 6

When a player running with the ball is tackled, and the ball falls free, it is called play on. If the tackled player tries to kick the ball but it hits the ground before he drop kicks it (quite effectively) he is penalized for illegal disposal…as happened to Mundy. He was told, “drop kick”.

The droppie is not illegal. We want players disposing the ball…not dropping it. Umpires must not make up new rules mid-game.

The thrust of comments is correct. Stop changing rules. Just tell umps to umpire all rules, not just the rule of the week.

AFL want attitude change towards umpires

Freo has pushed the Premiers to 13 points with terrible kicking, beat the second Premiership faves and is the only side to dispense with The Saints. They have played 4 of the top half of the ladder. Mostly easier games ahead.

Daniel Jeffery’s comment, “you’d think Freo will have to start sliding down the ladder soon”, could explain the tipping results. (I’m on 27, by the way.)

The current combined salary of those 3 would be less than Geelong is paying Kelly now. I wouldn’t put too many eggs in that basket.

He was on Freo’s list for 2 years.

Five teams to catch in the AFL

I’m counting premiership points…so I count.

'Overrated' Cats will still beat the Hawks on Easter Monday

Once thing is for sure. The Dockers are under-rated.

Broken legs and concussions are collision injuries. His capacity to recover is phenomenal.

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

I don’t think you appreciate how good Fyfe is.

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

They are in two different leagues, Jordan.

I’d have Fyfe even if you offered, Lachie, Rayner, McCluggage and Zorko together as a swap.

Kangas to defeat the competition’s biggest question mark. Essendon is as temperamental as a Lada Niva.

North Melbourne vs Essendon: Good Friday forecast

The wet weather will have abated by then. Just very cold…almost as cold as a Melbourne spring day.

West Coast vs Port Adelaide: Friday night forecast

Firstly, Tabs is an excellent kick…he just missed last week.

Ballas is our best lock down forward by a long way. You have to watch him live to see the way he shuts down exit options. Switkowski will learn that game savvy and, when he does, he will go past Ballas.

Cox was recruited as a defender. He is a genuinely versatile player. He has great pace too so there are other possibilities.

With Darcy, watch his second efforts. He is quite agile. His tackles stats…both at WAFL and AFL…are stunning. It is atypical of ruckmen.

A small defender is an issue. Maybe we have to look at Giro or Crowden and train them. I notice they are playing Jason Carter in the back pocket at Peel.

Banfield is far better than Colyer and Matera.

AFL media misses the point, yet again
