I was wrong about the Eagles, i like most thought they would kill a depleted Collingwood at home. To not score for 46 minutes is terrible.I was right about Kennedy, they cant win a flag without him at his best. Forget the weak flu excuses he has been down all year, he may still have a odd good one but to me his best is long gone.They will bounce back and still make the top four, but no chance to go back to back.

Pies stun Eagles in thrilling grand final rematch

Agree 100% Cat him and my mate Lyon are dinosaurs, very surprising for me. Good news for North and Shaw.

John Longmire signs new contract to remain at Swans

The only thing of interest in this game is Grundy V Nic-Nat the two best ruck men in the game for the past six years. Eagles by at least six goals for me.

West Coast vs Collingwood: Friday night forecast

Love your passion for the game Downsey, have you ever played or thinking of having a go ? I have read your comments and highly regard your knowledge of Freo and the game. You can coach go for it.

The girls of grassroots footy

You will never see the game played as it was in the first 5 years of the so called AFL. Nothing compares to the great SO Origin games between SA, WA and Vic. Apart from a few the skill levels displayed are ordinary to say the least in today’s game.

Footy is in a funk

Why ? because Mundy would of been a far better leader of men, and Fyfe could of just done what Fyfe does best, play footy, and the club may have been in a better place IMO.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

Love Dave Mundy 34yo on the the 20th of July…..should still be the Captain.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

Martin a ruck man who is underrated, can match it with the best. A back line as good as any led by the best Andrews, the master Hodge and D.Rich. Cameron no better small forward, if not the best, highly dangerous, along with McCarthy and Rayner, Talented tall’s Hipwoodand and McStay.
Neale dominates the clearances and stoppages along with veteran gun Zorko backed up by McCluggage, Robinson,Berry and Lyons the list is endless. Look out there building nicely they won’t have any worries with the MCG its all on the day.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

No…….The same could be said after round 16 the years Richmond and the Bulldogs won flags .Far more wide open this year.

The Lions aren't just a finals contender, they're a premiership contender

I couldn’t agree more Justin, there as good as any team in fact better than most. Two years ago they were close to a basket case. When Lachie Neale walked out on Freo there fans screamed why would he leave a club with a far better list, but the Lion’s are close to a flag and Freo have lost there last 3 and appear to be going backwards, lose this week and drop to 14th,The lions have few weaknesses now and not only has Fagan done wonders but Hodge has been sensational.They are better poised to win a flag than Richmond and the Bulldogs were. Big Watch !

Good Call, i could not believe Ross talking we are building still. We already had a renovation going horribly wrong.

Which top eight side looks the shakiest?

Ross Lyon just said, his wife said that most of the people signing the petition for him to be stood down are WC Eagle’s supporters ?

Footy is in a funk

Ever heard of Reality ? Blind Freddie can see it, the wheels are falling off……………
Some are saying they fell off last Saturday night !

Which top eight side looks the shakiest?

Good call Scott, the team are bereft of a plan, skills are very poor which as you said has led to low confidence levels. Lost the last 3 in a row, one at home against Carlton . Head to Tassie this week to play the Hawks lost 11 from 11 down there against them. Miracle’s do happen but unlikely. A loss sees us slip to 13th and closer to a new coach.

Which top eight side looks the shakiest?

IAP couldn’t agree more, i still love footy but it is harder to watch now no doubt whatsoever the 1960- 70 era was great 1980-1995 was brilliant but the present day scrums stacks on the mill stuff and 36 in one half of the field and kicking backwards…no get real. Your right about WCE as well they play closer to the old style game probably why there the best. Brisbane and Pagan also good to watch. No comment on my mob.

True Scott.

The AFL stock market: Round 16

Like to think he has peaked …but he thinks otherwise good luck to him.

Five talking points AFL Round 16

Brisbane are not far of a flag, remarkable turn around orchestrated by Fagan and Hodge.

Five talking points AFL Round 16

He is only 22yo he can only get better. I had a birds eye view recently in Perth. Absolutely smashed Jessie Hogan although the entry’s were not crash hot. Poised to be a all time great….

Five talking points AFL Round 16

Eagles will still have the hunger to win a flag especially for Nic-Nat, Gaff and Sheppard. . Pretty big ins i reckon.

The AFL stock market: Round 16

Ryan has been really good again this year after a brilliant year last year, you obviously missed that he was way better than Brad last year (i watch all of the eagles games as well ) maybe Brad has his nose a little in front this year, but he has a lot more support around him as well.

The AFL stock market: Round 16

He did win 2 Fairest and Best’s would have been a great captain, but i did say when he left he will captain the Lion’s sooner than later.

Five talking points AFL Round 16

He obviously identified Pagan and Brisbane were a better option for the future and his call has been vindicated right already, smart move.

Five talking points AFL Round 16

One win against St Kilda. Lost all 11 against the Hawks.

Which top eight side looks the shakiest?

Brad is a great player no doubt but he is no better than Luke Ryan neither will make AA .I think 22 yo Harris Andrews is fast becoming the best back man behind the great Guv. there clearly the best two in the comp.
