    I'll declare it again now - Richmond out in straight sets.
    Albeit also will start as outsiders in both matches.

    Ye of little faith albeit understandable! Their Only $6 to win the flag on Tabtouch..
    Best chance is against Geelong.Not much hope of beating the Swans if they lose the 1st game.

    Premiership odds :

    Adelaide 3.30
    Swans 4.75
    GWS 5.25
    Geelong 5.75
    Richmond 6
    Port 15
    Eagles 29
    Bombers write your own ticket.. jks their $51

    That's a super skinny gap between the fav and 5th fav! Tightarses..
    GWS and Tiges look unders and maybe the Cats too.

    Buckley re signs.
    Great news for non Collingwood supporters. 
    We can now only hope that Freo extends "Ross the Boss's" already extended contract.

    Very keen Richmond at the line
    +4.5
  • detonatordetonator    924 posts
    Hey Olhendo, what do you see in Buckley that the rest of Australia (apart from Eddie) doesn't ???
    I love the reappointment because your side is going backwards under Bucks.
    His game style is ......ummmmm.......no good.
  • detonatordetonator    924 posts
    Never seen Eddie so fumbly at a press conference saying Buckley is our man. His look wasn't of a man who was totally convinced about what was coming out of his mouth.

    Happy days ahead, just worry about you own mob son.

    I'd love to see Essendon exact some revenge for the loss earlier in the year up there. We outplayed them all night except the last 2 minutes.

    The bulldogs winning last year give me the hope we could do something similar...

    Beat Sydney in Sydney
    Beat Richmond in Melbourne
    Beat Adelaide in Adelaide
    Beat West Coast in the Grand Final





    :P

    Love your optimism Dad. But I suppose you had that in 2013, 14,15,16 and this year. Especially after your prize "Dustin Martin like" signing of Chris Maine. Lol lol

    Just call it as I see it Dungy.
    See Freo is well represented in the all Australian squad this year.
    Nice snub of your one and only fan in Melbourne on the weekend. Poor kid. Felt sorry for him.
    He was last seen at the Eagles shop buying a "number nine" guernsey.
    Your membership numbers will be down by one more next year. Lol Lol =))

    Not by design Dungy. Just such easy targets, I can't help myself.
  • detonatordetonator    924 posts
    Whilst "Ross the Boss" is coach of the shockers, no forward of any note will want to go there.
    Mitts saw the writing on the wall and is staying put.
    3 year contract. Same length as "Ross the Boss" has left in charge. Hmmmmm =D>

    Don't know whether Rio has first hand knowledge and can confirm this but in todays West, Lachie Neale says he's got a bit of a groin problem. He reckons his bone actually feels really good, it's just his muscle has no power. :))

    Sounds like he was making a personal statement about me to be honest!!!!!
    :-$ =)) =))

    I don't think its a secret he has been playing the second half of the year a long way off 100% fit..and still done a Stirling job.

    Whilst posting. I might also have to eat a bit of humble pie on Mackenzie of the weagles. He has slowed worked his way back into the pace of AFL football, and i said at the start of this year, or end of last that i thought the game had gone past him and he shoudl be cut from the list. But he has finished the home and away season doing his job, as well as anyone in the back half of the team.. Congrats to him for getting back in and being a contributor

    Dusty stays a Tiger......
    But at what price ?
  • TheDivaTheDiva    10,662 posts
    the turning point was when brad scott re-signed for Norths early in the week... Dusty thought... f*ck that, I'm staying put! 
    $1.3 mill a year I heard.

    Yeah, was the talk.
    Appears it's more like $1.15m though.
    Can live with that.
  • TiversTivers    6,249 posts
    Plus probably $50k for footy show appearance.

  • detonatordetonator    924 posts
    Wow. No footy posts for nearly a week.
    Has everyone lost interest ???
    Even Dungy has gone into hiding. Could it be his worst nightmare comes true and Eagle progress in the finals ??
    Could it be that all Dockers supporters go into hibernation before the finals like this time every year ?

    Mixed feelings on the week off im not a fan myself..not sure what the clubs think of it particularly the ones who get a week off again after this round.

    Winners this weekend i reckon,

    Crows, have a hunch GWS might give them a run though their due to strike some form?
    Tiges..hope they fire up! Surely they can forget about past failures and seize the day.
    Swans..mother of all certainties.
    Port, but give the eagles a sneaky chance as they play well in Adelaide.
