Well, Jeremy Cameron had other plans.

My take on Round 22 of the AFL season

As much as it’s disappointing to not get the huge names. We are still getting relatively spoilt. Donovan Mitchell, Tatum, Brown, Smart, Kemba, Kuzma, Middleton. Only bad call they made was not keeping Adebayo in the squad. The man is way better than Plumlee and just as good as Myles Turner.

Boomers vs USA fiasco an insult to Aussie basketball

Yeah I find North a bit of a hard team to watch. I don’t know what it is about them that makes it this way. Brown was excellent on the weekend. Well deserved Coleman medal coming his way.

Thanks for your comment mate!

My take on Round 22 of the AFL season

I was at the game and do agree with you in a sense. I’m a Richmond fan and think that we did come back well when it was dry, however I think the wet did help our case. Eagles backs looked too tall in that last qtr in the crunch time, so I think we were lucky it rained. Thanks for the comment.

My take on Round 22 of the AFL season

Apparently Miami are keen on him. I’d be happy to see him on my team if it didn’t cost us too much. He would be good on a championship contender too. Just imagine Kawhi x George and Griffin!

Great article Marnie. I’m sure you are happy those Roos won this week. How good is Ben Brown. Woweee.

The biggest Dee-sappointment of 2019

If Griffin does end up leaving, then they won’t get close for mine. I don’t think Drummond x Griffin really works. We will see though, maybe this season will be different.

Pretty spot on. Think the Raps x Heat x Magic x Nets and Pistons will be fighting for 6-10th in the East. It’s going to be a ripper season!

Those studs up decisions were shockers!
Can’t wait for Lions v Tigers next week. Going to be a ripper!

Five talking points from AFL Round 22

Agreed. Could be a tough one for them if things don’t go to plan. I can’t see them failing though.

NBA: Predicting the 2019-20 Western Conference standings

That’s so true. Will be very interesting to see how they go depth wise. There isn’t much there other than Kawhi x George.

Was analysing the Sixers on here the other day too. Behind their starting 5 of Simmons, Richardson, Harris, Embiid and Horford they’ve got little depth. They are going to struggle against someone like the Bucks who have George Hill, Korver, Lopez type of guys coming off the bench.
Interesting year ahead.

NBA: Predicting the 2019-20 Western Conference standings

Coming from an NBA fanatic, this article is epic. Loved seeing the format cross over to the AFL. Would definitely have Taranto and Worpel ahead of Dawson for mine, the impact both have had on their team overall has been larger in my eyes.
Epic article man!

What if the AFL awards were like American sport?

I disagree here, coming from a Tigers man.
Heppell, Merrett, Stringer, Shiel, Zaharakis, Parish are all very good. Devon Smith also a gun. They just can’t put it together, thats the problem. There is no cohesion there.

Are Essendon actually in a funk, or did we all just fall for the hype?

Thanks man. Yeah I think Love is a great fit. It’s just about what you have to give up to get him.

Yes, Brooklyn completely depends on what KD they get back. Irving can only carry them so far. Prince and DeAndre Jordon are good inclusions, but do they have enough around Irving until Durant comes back to contend?

My 2019-20 Eastern Conference predictions

Thanks man! Korver is going to a great vet for the Bucks I think! Yeah I think if Miami can piece together a good package, Beal and Wall would be awesome! I’m a Heat fan so I would be over the moon if it were to fall that way. Agreed on the Love to Detroit point, I don’t see him being an improvement over Griffin.
Thanks for your comment mate.

Very fair predictions. Would have gone pretty much the exact same myself! Well done!
