It’s been a big week on football.
Hawthorn President Jeff Kennett has taken on the AFL administration/warlords over umpires.
What a dilemma!! Who to barrack for?
I’m supporting a nil all draw with lots of injuries. Kennett with concussion, Demitriou taking a tongue lashing.
The former President of Carlton and consumer rip of and price fixing (that’s part of the selection criteria to become Carlton president) has passed on. Carlton used to win for Sir Robert Menzies, for Malcolm Fraser, for John Elliott. They cheated to win a flag in 1995, so expect a big game from them in honour of Dick Pratt.
And fittingly Carlton play Hawthorn. On balance, the characters that hang around Carlton are shadier than those at Hawthorn and Kennett remains non dead. Carlton to cause an upset.
Collingwood vs North Melbourne. Collingwood are pathetic losers, their president is a sook. Apparently he isn’t rich enough to be crooked. Loser. North to win.
West Coast Vs Fremantle. Who cares? Since the various drug busts and suppression of bikies, the Eagles seem to have lost their way. Fremantle to cause an upset.
Brisbane vs Essendon. I note that the Brisbane lads have put in a big week under the sun lamps. They’re very browned up. Essendon are pale, they don’t have a chance.
Port vs Adelaide, ie Men on Remand vs Weak Jokers. Once again, the impartial observer would hope for a nil all draw with serious injuries throughout the game, both sides to finish with 12 players and call it off at three quarter time. Port are well to receiving and us physical punishment, they should win.
Sydney vs Richmond. We can only hope that Sydney have a narrow win, after a very dubious free kick after the siren to cause more excruciating pain for all their supporters and coach.
Melbourne vs Geelong. Melbourne are weak losers. I’d like to know who Geelong’s pharmacist is. I want what they take. Geelong to win.
Western Bulldogs vs St Kilda. A game late on Sunday, which will suit St Kilda, they’ll be able to sleep in after a late night on the piss at the social club. The Bulldogs are hopeless, perennial losers. Being a traditionalist, that should continue. Saints to win.
Kind regards to all
