Well here I am seeing if I am techo enough to post a blog topic. If it works, look out!!!
In Australian Football this weekend (I will NEVER call it AFL) we have some pretty good matches.
Geelong v Collingwood tonight will be the match of the round. Almost impossible to pick with both sides showing solid, if not great, form. I’m going with Collingwood in the absence of Brad Ottens and because I wasn’t impressed with the Cats over Richmond last week.
St Kilda v West Coast. St Kilda at home fairly easily. Baker will take Kerr, lose the battle, but do just enough to prevent Kerr putting on a show like last week.
Carlton v Essendon. One of what some may call the “traditional blockbusters” Carlton are flying and the Bombers are fighting amongst themselves. Carlton by plenty.
Brisbane v Sydney. Brisbane haven’t beaten the Swannies in I don’t know how long and the Bloods are coming off a flogging of the current premiers. Yet Brisbane start favourites? Go figure. Tough one to pick if you’re neutral. I’m not. Swans.
Port Adelaide v Melbourne. You heard it first from me. Port Adelaide are crap this year. Melbourne are worse. Port to win at home.
North Melbourne v Hawthorn. This would have been a tough pick if The Age hadn’t decided to report a stupid video about chickens as representing some sort of underlying degradation of women. Now North probably won’t play a couple of their best players and Hawthorn will win.
Fremantle v Adelaide. Fremantle couldn’t even win in the WAFL at the moment. Adelaide by plenty, even without the wife beater. FFS when will these blokes learn that if grog makes you aggro, don’t drink. Not really that difficult.
Western Bulldogs v Richmond. Was Richmond’s effort against Geelong last week the real deal or were Geelong just loafing. We will find out on Monday arvo when they come up against the Dogs. Richmond haven’t convinced me. Dogs to win.
Too early to give any punting tips yet but I hope to drop in on Sat morn with some sort of analysis.
Happy Easter Gents and Lassies.
James of North Melbourne
