The umpire of the Hawks Crows game needs to get down to OPSM on Monday morning

How long will the AFL persist with the Gold Coast team? Dead set embarrassing and they are not improving one bit, Gary Ablett the champion is wasting his time at that joint regardless how much money he is on.

How can the Kangaroos kick 8 in the 3rd quarter, and with all the momentum behind them get done after requiring the Cats to kick 5 goals to nil to win the game?

Didn't see the match, but it would appear to smack of poor player attitude, poor coaching, or both.  Confused

Port Adelaide absolutely flogging Freo, this after last season's debacle.

Lyon's head must surely be on the block after just two rounds.

Had to feel a bit for Buckley watching his players do things that he never did as a player. That's prob his problem as a coach.

My thoughts so far -

Adelaide - Very very good, top 4.

Brisbane - Much improved, Won't push top 8, but will cause a few upsets and be more competitive, bottom 4.

Carlton - Not as bad as some making out, bottom 4 though.

Collingwood - Think they are ok, mid table, even with a 0-2 start.

Essendon - Pretty good, but have doubts long term. 7th - 10th

Fremante - Bottom 4

Geelong - Strong as usual, push for top 4

Gold  Coast - Hopeless, bottom 4

GWS - Will go close, top 4

Hawks - On decline, 6th - 10th

Melbourne - On the rise, 6th - 10th

Kangaroos - Rebuilding, but will go ok, mid table or just below

Port - Pretty strong, top 8, not sure where though

Richmond - 9th lol. lower half of top 8

St Kilda - 7th - 11th

Swans - Top 8, not sure about top 4

Eagles - Top 8, dont think they will make top 4

Bulldogs - Top 4 and will go close again

Think some decent sides will miss 8 this year, hard to pick

Pretty much agree with your assessments there heavy..
Port, melb and tigers prob the toughest to line up: re how much have they improved.

hopefully melb go on with it ,play an exciting brand and their supporters deserve some success.

Re Buckley when is enough enough?
How many years of failing is he allowed?

Buckley has said he'll go if the Pies don't make the Eight this year.

As a supporter and occasional visitor to the sheds can't find much wrong with his coaching as such, however despite forward coaches, mid-field coaches, defender coaches, goal-kicking coaches, etc etc like all teams have; if

players continually fail to find targets
mid-fielders won't work sufficiently hard in the back half
defenders won't act as launching pads
forwards can't kick straight......................................................then you can't win too many games.

Just reckon their playing staff is fairly ordinary, but someone has to carry the can and that will certainly be Buckley.

 very ordinary forward line...if you can keep playing Blair you're in trouble...when White is your best forward you're in trouble...

Can't say the Hawks are tanking they've already traded away next years draft picks. Ouch Think results of the last few days go to show that in modern football if you don't come to play and the other team does, you're fisted, regardless of "form". Never bet on AFL and I won't be starting soon.

Sportsbet currently have huge overs on Fremantle to finish top 8 - $8. TAB $4 - 365 $5 - Betfair $6. Thoughts - can Fremantle get their act together ?

1:1 IMO could do worse than $8 freo to make the 8.

Dees a couple of good players down today
So freo get their chance. I think melb are.a pretty good team so not potting them
But they had a gruelling game last week too and are a tad vulnerable here I reckon.

If you wait till after this week and freo win that $8 will disappear ofc
Maybe down to $4 or something like that.. Could either get on pregame or
Back freo today and let it ride if they win on them to make the 8..
If they lose today makes it tough and their odds will obv drift and if your are still tempted
Could always go again.
If I was backing them to make the 8 and id lean towards plan b.

Could do worse than a $ or 2 on Hawkins for the Coleman too IMO.

I like the blues this week : big odds wth the home state adv and been ok last 2 weeks
Will be having a few $ on them

Once per market - so that $8 could be boosted to $10 for example

Correct Eccair. Unfortunately I used my Power Play early days when odds were much shorter. $2.80 to $3.20 I think before first round. I have kept backing them each week so have got plenty on at great odds over past few weeks. I would think price would be $4 or less now when market reopens. Also got Fyffe going for plenty e/w (top 3) in Brownlow. Cheers
