Who do we like?

I still like Geelong to win. I hope Demons, Port or Lions go well, I really hope Bombers, GWS & Swans fall out first & second weeks. Everything is crossed.

Anybody but fucking Geelong. Can't stand them. Especially can't stand the fawning fucking commentary - Danger this, Danger that. Fucking nauseating.

For everyone else, in order of preference:
Brisbane
Port
GWS
Sydney
Dogs
Melbourne
Scum (I would have them up with Geelong but they're not a realistic chance).

As for who I think will win, either Melbourne or fucking Geelong.

Melbourne for me. Can’t begrudge a perennial loser team whose last flag was in 1964.

Don’t want any of the pet NSW clubs to win either.

yeah, I can't get much enthusiasm for any of them except, maybe the dogs and maybe Port. It's always good when a non -VFl side can win the league, so I'm happy with Port to win. If the scum go anywhere near it they should launch another investigation. Geelong deserve to go out in straight sets, as the club have behaved like jerks off-field. The covid testing of our players where they got blood noses and the way they are such hypocritical flogs when it comes to trading.

In other news, the AFL will be wishing that the scum win given they are one of the big money clubs. They will make more off licensed merchandise if they win than any other club. They'll get better rating if Sydney go deep.

This part is the perfect post. I'll be going for the Lions mostly and then GWS, Sydney, Port.

Good game between Demons and Lions, but got to say the demons have the favour of the muppets, they can do what they like especially love the old flck pass, sorry hand ball.

GWS, Port or Brisbane.
Do NOT want Melbourne or Geelong to win.
GWS - I just think it would be funny if GWS win a flag before cockburn. Will go to the game at Optus if Toby Green is playing. Otherwise won’t waste my money.
Port - why not - they’re not Victorian.
Brisbane - same why not, but I don’t think they’re up to it.

I've some tickets and some orange. Mostly want to support Finals in Perth. Toby now has three weeks which seems fair to me; fool, he has really let the game, his team and himself down. Would have loved to have watched him, but not at any price and the price to the game would have been far too high.

Off to the GF today. Should be a banging game, certainly in the best stadium its ever been in. I'll be supporting Melbourne for the day but I kind of like the Dogs chances and good for them. Even though Melbourne have never won a AFL premiership they have won a bucket load of VFL ones in the past so I reckon the Dogs are more deserving. So excited for a great game:)

I think it'll be close, maybe the Dogs to win in extra time? Extra time would be great!

I'm off to the GF too. Cannot wait!! I am just hoping for a cracking game and an appearance from Sacha Baron Cohen as either Borat or Freddy Mercury.

Cracking game for two and a half quarters. Then Petracca stepped up. What a player.

Venue was far better than the MCG in every respect, lighting super, entertainment was spectacular (apart from one synchronised dance act with LED light tube issues). Set changes so much smoother than the MCG; the bar has really been lifted. And the crowd was really, really loud, they had the crowd noise turned down heaps on the TV. Probably a good thing this game was between two Melbourne clubs in the long run, hopefully it will send a loud message to the AFL that they should rip up the MCG contract once and for all and start again; make it a truly national game.

One thing that was really obvious from the game play is there was almost zero kicking it backwards. It was fast forward footy by both teams with some quick kicking across the ground to switch play about the extent of it and once it got to the other side it was moved forward quickly, not held while the other team set up. We're a very long way off the pace, hopefully Simpson - who was at the game - took note.

So happy to have made the game; it was a brilliant occasion.

Let's hope the Eagles coaching staff (and Board) took note. On the rare occasions that we threw caution to the wind and played in this manner, we looked great. Just need to drill this way, so that we're better skilled and less prone to errors when we do it.
