Keen on Pies 1-39 today and might roll it into Tigers 1-39, but not as confident with that game, think my Lions can give them a big fright, might take Brisbane with a start, got to think about it

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
Spot on.... into $4 this morning with SB
I've only backed one certainty in my life....& it lost !

Moore is going to find out how bad Cloke had it the last few years under Buckley and his game plan. I didn't like Cloke senior coming out and bagging Collingwood or Buckley the other week in defence of Travis. But he was right Travis & Moore are both disadvantaged by the way the Collingwood midfield get the ball into the forward line. Cloke was right the game plan needs to change to get the ball into the forwards faster instead of the midfielders stuffing around with. Buckley will be gone at the end of the year and it wouldn't surprise me to see Collingwood make a play for Paul Roos. Don't think they'll get him but they'll try

Agree Whale the woman's season is over and I'm a little over channel 7 and the AFL pushing the woman footy down our throats still. Daisy Pearce was average today but in saying that so was Hamish McLachlan

 agree...but in the same breath, Moore is vastly overrated...we actually don't have a forward line at all...

How so? We are tracking along nicely for the 2020 flag 👍

Obv disappointed with how they've played last 2 weeks and Expect a much better showing next week. If it turns out to be a loss it'll be much more competitive : I think.

Moore is young skinny kid who is still learning his trade. He'll get better as he grows and fills out. That is going to take time as he isn't a young beast like Jessie Hogan. Moore is also disadvantaged with Cloke now gone. Moore gets the best defender each week making his job as a forward even harder. The problem for Moore is  he's a forward playing in a very average side. Put him in a good side with other crack forwards to learn off and you'd see a different player.

I'm a Melbourne fan but I have to say I did love watching the footy on the weekend. Sydney goes down to West Coast.  mind you I don't think that Sydney are playing all that poorly, they've been stiff in some of the games so far this year.  Then the highlight for me Hawthorn had their brains kicked in by Geelong on Monday. Nothing better than seeing the Hawks get rolled and watching their fans go off their rockers in the stands. The crossovers to Clarkson were priceless to watch Thumbs Up

Moore needs to stop looking at himself on the big screen and get on with playing footy. I bet there is at leadt one mirror in every room of his house. Loves looking at himself.

1:1 Freo have looked the real deal last 2 weeks: comfortably beating the reigning premiers and an away win v a good team. Tonight a game they should win; hope they go on with it for you & me as they'll be carrying a couple of my $ to cover the 11.5 pts.

My top 8 now that the season is beginning to sort itself out.

Crows
Cats
Giants
Richmond
West coast
Dogs
Freo
Melb or port

Top 3 could be in any order as could the next 3..but theyll look the top 6 to me.
Showing some faith in the Tigers: they look a lot better this yr, imo. Playing With belief and like a team for a change.

I think St Kilda is a reasonable bet at $2.70.  You never know with them but if they can get their kicking boots on, and they love Etihad Stadium

Geelong have won 23 of past 28 h & a games with a % around 150.
As good a record as any team & I think they are slightly underrated.

Heavy do you give your team (the lions) a hope this week.. Big odds and a big headstart..
They have been better this yr; hope they can keep going the right direction

The Woods, as expressed earlier, are short on talent.

Thank goodness we have the Hawks and Swans, neither of which can fly, to deflect attention from the under-performing peckers.  Star
