Devour everything I can read, watch or go to in regard to the AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member. Will never, ever get over losing the following Grand Finals - 77, 79, 81, 2002, 2011, 2018...1980 and 2003 we were never in it. Watching the Pies win 2010 with my boys was one of the greatest days in my life.

I said a blues mate had good inside info on Lyon being offered the job. That might still turn out to be true when it all comes out .

Brad Scott likes the west I hear.

Ross Lyon, the Bell tolls for thee

You wait Kane. You’ll be apologising to me when the Lyon Blues connection comes to light. This time Ross backed himself into a corner.

Well respected at the Pies. Has another year of contract but they don’t mean much do they ?

I’m still hearing it will eventually come out that Lyon had the Carlton job until they started winning under Teague and “ people power” won out. Ross was left in limbo and perhaps the stakeholders at Freo got word of it.

I’d play anyone but despite just beating them recently I think eagles at Optus the hardest

A good body of work but if anything 2019 has shown us, it is to expect the unexpected. Pies will win the whole thing from 5th if need be.

Pies unceremoniously booted the tigers out of the finals last year billy boy and can do it again. Some handy recruits back for finals in de Goey, Moore, Aish and a kid called Stephenson

Lions have been remarkable. I bet the Blues wish they got Fagan instead of Bolts!

Pies can beat every top 4 side. Knocked off the eagles in Perth not long ago and four stars to return for finals

Doggies are flying. I’m hopeful we will avoid you and get one of the flaky Adelaide sides first week. Still, Hawks May knock eagles out of top 4 too as I hold no hope of Brisbane beating Richmond

Five talking points from AFL Round 22

Lions won’t beat Richmond at the G so pies need the hawks to win and knock the eagles out of the four. Only AD tipped the Pies to beat the Crows. I tipped us by 40+. We found our mojo and smashed them by 11 goals. There will be two highly dangerous sides in the lower half of the eight next week probably. Could it be a Dogs v Pies GF?

2019 AFL Power Rankings: Round 22

Lions have been absolutely amazing. Cats aren’t done yet. Eagles will miss the top 4 if the Hawks knock them over and Pies win. Richmond are hard to read with four games in a row in the wet. Giants are just predictably flaky this time of year but have injury excuses. Doggies are scary and Pies have found their mojo in their best win all year while facing the tricky task of fitting in Moore, Stephenson, Aish and De Goey. Blimey, can the Pies knock out Richmond two years running? They will not want to face us.

Isn’t that the purpose of The Roar? We all wind each other up. If Carlton ever get relevant again Kane you can join in?

I couldn’t care less what other clubs do Kane, I love the way our club is run and love our coach and list. No apologies for that.

A new coach shouldn’t turn a club around in season Macca. Bolton clearly was over complicating things and not much good
