AFL Preview with Tom of Melbourne
It is great news that Terry Wallace has finally been flicked. After relentlessly undermining him, crushing his own confidence and the confidence of others in him, the sports media is now free to talk about what a great and innovative coach he was.
We can also get on with attacking the next proud, former champion footballer that is now trying to coach a team lacking in talent.
Who’s next? Personally, I’m sick of Dean Laidley, it looks like he is gone. Who could blame North for trying to get a coach that can’t string a sentence together. There are other candidates for the block, Mick Malthouse, Mark Harvey, Mark Williams, even that little turd at Hawthorn is a chance (though he doesn’t meet my criteria of being proud or a former champion).
I say – bring on the speculation!! I’d love to see Mark Williams coach Collingwood, after being sacked by Port Adelaide. I’d like to see Graham Cornes back at Port. The players would like to see his wife back around the place too. She’s got a couple of bogan stepsons though.
On other news, apparently Kevin Rudd boycotted a dinner at the Minerals Council during the week.
He did them a big favour. There is nothing like a speech from the PM to spoil an appetite, and those mining execs love food. They’d have been very angry if he’d turned up to the trough and spoiled their appetite for swill.
I think Kevin should become an AFL Pesident at some stage, just like the failed politician Jeff Kennett. Imagine the savings on catering during the Presidents Lunch with Rudd speaking!
I believe Hawthorn already has a special coterie group, one where you can’t hear the president’s speech. It costs much more to join that one, but it is worth it.
This weeks games…
Dogs vs Richmond .
What a sensational win by the Tigers last week. Terry Wallace should have been dismissed on the spot immediately after the game. Now he will have to endure a thrashing by the club he walked out on. Dogs to win, Wallace to go out a loser. Tiger fans will spit at him for old time’s sake, this is a traditional send off from the tiger fans.
North vs St Kilda
North are genetically predisposed towards contracting swine flu. Particularly that @r$ehole that used to be their captain and still plays for them.
Therefore St Kilda to win again.
Brisbane vs Carlton
The problem with Carlton at the moment seems to be that the criminals have lost control. No Elliot, no Pratt. It is now a club that has lost its heritage. And Fev just can’t do it all on his own, no matter how many times he takes a leak under a security camera, or gets a barman in a headlock.
I don’t particularly object to Brisbane when they are playing Carlton , so they should win.
Port vs Fremantle
This game will be played in front of about 4,000 people. Traditionally this is the game with the least amount of interest for the entire season, it is between the runt teams of their respective states. Does it matter who wins? No but it will probably be Fremantle.
Hawthorn vs Sydney
Hawthorn is finished. Any club that predominantly has lawyers and bank managers as the membership base deserves to fail. Top this off with Kennett as president. Tossers. Hawthorn is the new Collingwood, everyone should hate them. The Swans should win easily.
West Coast vs Geelong
Most people in Western Australia have never left the state. We can all be grateful for that. But this is why they think Perth is a pleasant city, they don’t know any better. They have no idea about anything other than digging up their countryside and putting it on a ship to China . They don’t know what it means to have a loyal football club culture. That’s why Daniel Kerr plays for them.
The city of Geelong is mainly populated by bogans and bikies. Though they produce some fair footballers. So Geelong will win.
Melbourne vs Collingwood
The Collingwood fans will be late getting in to this game, they’ll be busy in the car park running keys along the side of the Range Rovers and Mercedes that the Melbourne fans drive. At the 12 minute mark of the 3rd quarter Melbourne people will inspect the damage, because they’ll all be leaving the game by the 10 minute mark, Collingwood will be 15 goals in front by then.
Does anyone care to speculate about the identity of players that have tested positive twice for a banned substance?
