It’s still grass; it still gets chopped up with use. That’s the original reason they got rid of the seconds games before the seniors.

I’m curious, what’s your knowledge of his knowledge of groundskeeping?

Sounds like a rumour or urban myth rather than common knowledge.

The point about the grounds is perfectly valid Paul. Even my local ground used to get chopped up, especially when we’d had regular rain, if it got used too much. We used to train on it twice a week and play there every second weekend, and so did the soccer club, and we’d have to stay off the centre square area by the middle of winter.

Looks like we all overestimated Brisbane. Although, they’ve lost to Geelong 18 out of the past 21 matches, or something like that. Wish I knew that yesterday…

Get out the popcorn, this one’s going to be good. Hopefully his teammates will back him up when he cops the inevitable push and shove. He should put his money where his mouth is and use it to put the pressure right onto Naitanui – run him around all day and give him lip when he goes to the bench or doesn’t defend.

Reilly O'Brien: Time to walk the walk

I don’t think you do find it amusing. I certainly find winding you up amusing though! Saints are no good anyway…

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

I got it. It’s just not true. It’s a nice old wives tale to make the fans of the second tier comps feel better. The reality is that the non-Vics couldn’t wait to be part of the premier comp and we’re silly enough to pay us to join our comp. Anyone who thinks Victorian football wouldn’t have survived without them doesn’t know Victorian football and doesn’t know Victorians.

An MCG grand final probably can't happen - but where else works?

No, the medicore comps that are the poor cousins to the might of the VFL.

Fisher is in the top half dozen most important players at Carlton – he’s the one that gives them some dash and dare.

Yeah the long bomb to a pack has never worked in the history of the game; it should only be used when there’s absolutely no other option. Going backwards and maintaining possession is a better option I reckon.
How do the Dogs rank for clearances in the past 3 weeks (albeit against some ordinary opposition, other than GWS)?

I would try for sure. He’s a super player.

Yeah the Dogs were witches hats that night; that game isn’t a good indicator of the quality of the teams.
The good teams this year are/will be Brisbane, Port, Collingwood, GWS, WC and the Dogs. No others have a chance of winning the flag.
I write St Kilda off because they’re crap.

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

I’m tipping Freo. St Kilda are being massively overrated. They still have a crap midfield, an average forward line and an average back line. They’re like GC – early season form is inflated by beating teams that are down or just bad. They won’t be able to handle the decent teams.

The big challenge for the Blues will be getting their hands on it from stoppages. Cripps will need a big game, otherwise those big forwards will get very little supply.

The Dogs will stick Toby McLean on Docherty and he’ll take him out of the game.

“The weight of their past success”…2 flags in their history, that’s not weighing them down, it’s long forgotten.

The Crows must put their infamous camp behind them

Past success? Adelaide haven’t won anything for 23 years.

Any thoughts on any other teams?

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

Some solid tips there last week. 6 for me, bringing my total to 26. I learned a couple of very valuable lessons this week – never tip Adelaide and never tip Melbourne.
This week’s tips:
– Brisbane (they may have had a charmed run with HGA but they’re a quality side)
– Hawthorn (Collingwood missing too many)
– Freo (Saints are overrated, Freo know the ground now)
– West Coast (by how far? They love to kick teams when they’re down)
– GC (never tipping Dees again)
– Essendon (no Cunnington or Higgins = no North)
– Port (GWS don’t do travel)
– Sydney (Richmond just have too many out)
– Dogs (heart)

Not for the comp that matters there isn’t. Maybe in the B-leagues.

No it can’t.

According to AD footy is dead already…

I’m not ignorant – I’m Victorian, I know exactly how Victorians think. Do you?
