I would like to say that I think Collingwood could end up having a hard time with Melbourne on Monday. Just watch out for a possible upset. Greasy wintery conditions and a large crowd could favour the Magpies on paper and in theory, but how bad have they been at being consistent!!

Well when I predicted that the sequence of win and loss would see the Bombers due for a loss last weekend, I didn't mean by that much Rolling Eyes

St Kilda Vs Carlton tonight. It is going to be a close one.

I purposefully haven't heard the results as yet but I think Carlton will be tested to the max tonight. Should be interesting where they end up.

St Kilda got the jump but Carlton showed some spirit to close within 4pts late in the last quarter. The Blues may just rue their last quarter inaccuracy.

I personally am not a fan of the split round, but the other half is happy!!

Great match last night shows the Blues really do have potential this year and rate them ahead of the Bombers by far and even ahead of Collingwood.
I'm Going to the biggest match of the year in a few weeks time got tickets already and its sold out (still think it should of been at the M.C.G would get 90,000 for sure) Saints and Cats and I'm not even a fan of either team but in saying that I do have a soft spot for the saints given my other half goes for them.

Good win by the Tigers last night. Happy for Jade Rawlings, but says alot for players and their attitude towards Terry Wallace.
This type of perofrmance tells messers Bowden, Pettifer, Simmonds and co that their time at Punt Rd is very limited.

Big game today down @ Aurora Stadium. Being a Hawjs supporter, I am hoping for a W, but it should be a tough game.

Well that was a huge reality check!! And I don't think the Hawks have the capacity to respond, which is disappointing. All credit to Voss, Brown and the Lions.

The break has come at the right time for Hawthorn, but will need a huge change in fortunes to make an impact in the 2nd half of the year.

Dean Laidley has stepped down as coach of the Kangaroos, effective immediately. The coaching merry-go-round has sped up a cog. With Mark Williams also looking on shaky ground, who will be the first team to snap up Buckley?

Another week, another pitiful Hawthorn performance. Tough conditions out west but the reigning premiers showed no reason to suggest they will be involved in September. I have officially put the cue in the rack for the season. Time to support the Doggies/Saints this year to knock of the Cats.

Another win to the Lions Karl.... They took the foot off the pedal in the last quarter, however they had done enough.

Bring on the Ashes and sleep deprivation!!!!

Yeah, Hawthorn were completely insipid, couldn't believe the lack of effort the team put in. They still have their classy players like Mitchell, Sewell, Roughead, Franklin, Hodge etc. but the lack of effort is there for all to see.

Really looking forward to watching Richmond get absolutely thumped by St. Kilda tonight (sarcasm emoticon?). Rolling Eyes
Still hopefully some of the younger players can show a few things for the tigers, it would give me something to watch for.

Changing the topic from AFL to cricket. With the 9 hour time difference between UK and AUS at the moment, I'm guessing the live coverage would start around 8pm here and finish around 5am or thereabouts. Not sure exactly when they start and finish over there with the longer daylight hours.

Bulldogs cement a top 4 spot with a solid win against the Bombers. The young Dons took it up to the Dogs leading at half time, but the overall class of the Dogs prevailed. Was impressed with the under-rated Mitch Hahn, who kicked 5 goals.

Can he do it consistently and in the finals?

Todays' games should see Geelong bounce back from 2 straight losses to beat the improving Demons. Carlton host Sydney. Should Carlton win, it will be curtains for the Swans in '09. In tonights games, can Freo score more than 1 goal when they host the surging Brisbane Lions. A win would for the Lions would pretty much secure Voss' charges a finals appearance. In tonights other game, it is do-or-die for the Hawks when they tackle the red-hot Pies at the MCG. My heart says the Hawks, btu my head expects the Magpies to have too many answers in the midfield with Swan, Pendlebury,Thomas,Didak & Davis (as weel as others).

Huge news yesterday with the new Gold Coast team signed Broncos and QLD origin star Karmichael Hunt. This is a huge coup for GC17 and instantly get a player and marketing/promotional tool all in one.

Not sure if it is panic stations for the NRL, but it is certainly a timely warning that what was once League safe havens are now being challenged by AFL and Football.

Interesting times ahead!!

Boy oh boy, what a round this is turning out to be. The farcical suspension of betting for the Hawks/Saints games ended up being a massive win for the bookies. Hawthorn have been a bunch of downhill skiers this year. Fantastic win by the Saints. Stating the obvious here, but with the calibre of players out, they were super super impressive.

A certain smell about Geelong' effort last night. I think were happy that Carlton won (in a strange sort of way!!). It was a nail in the Hawthorn coffin, as a loss to the Cats could have seen the Blues put under pressure to make the finals. Good on the Blues however, they did the job that was asked of them!!

A superb effort by the Eagles to knock over the Doggies at Etihad. Their first win in Melbourne for some 2 years. They were despised $10 outsiders with all betting agencies.

Collingwood proved again that they are the great road warriors, this time doing a number on Adelaide at AAMI. This win pretty much secures a Top 4 berth and leaves Adelaide in a battle with the Dogs and Brisbane for 4th spot.

Karl, you would have been on the edge of your seat tonight, watching your boys salvage a draw from the Dons. They looked gone a number of times, but Bradshaw took a clutch mark with 5 seconds left to tie the game. This result is a hammer blow to the Dons finals aspirations. They needed the 4 points to stay in touch with the 8, but now have a tough run home, including next week against St Kilda pale

3 rounds to go and still that 8th spot is up for grabs!! Port Adelaide were insipid against the Dockers, opening the door to Essendon, Sydney and Hawthorn. Being a Hawks man, would love the boys to grab 8th spot, but they haven't shown any desire or consistency to even string the 3 wins required to get 8th. Big game on Friday night against a very good Crows team. I think they will put the Hawks finally out of their misery.

Collingwood all but secured 3rd spot with the away win against the Crows. This leaves the Lions, Bulldogs, Crows and even Carlton to fight out who gets that critical double chance. As Karl mentioned, a massive game this week with the Lions taking on a injury depleted and wobbly Western Bulldogs at the Gabba. Both have very tough runs home, so the loser will lose an chance of a Top 4 finish. Will be a ripping game!!

As Brian Taylor says, wowee!! What a final game of the round, with the Bombers withstanding a final quarter comeback from the Saints to win. Nick Riewoldt has a chance to win the game after the siren, but his shot went right. A mighty effort by the Bombers. Hopefully they get full credit and the media don't write about the loss the Saints had to have. The Bombers came into the game missing some great players and lost more soldiers during the game.

The rest of the round provided a few shocks, especially the way the Dees "dee-stroyed" Fremantle. The Lions lost any chance of a Top 4 spot with a home loss to the Western Bulldogs. The Blues gave the Power a mighty spanking, whilst the Hawks were again soft against the Crows. The Tigers showed how far behind they are after playing the man, not the ball and lost by 15 goals. The game did remind me of the Hawks/Bombers "line in the sand" game. Hopefully the Tigers and their fans see a much improved performance in the near future.

It is going to be a full on last round of footy. Working within the industry, we are expecting it to be a final round which could have the buildup like a grand final week.

Anyhow lots of movement in the 8 as sides find they're feet as we work towards September. Little sad about my boys (Lions) loosing to the Bullies but look the Bulldogs are one of the dark horses, that when they are on they're game they can beat anyone.

Hopefully we can nail Port this week at home to secure our spot.
