    Really enjoy the game and will go out of my way to follow it, not that I get out to the ground too much nowadays, what with little tackers running around the house

    Swannies fan and gee they looked good yesterday - I'm not sure there is any team that can can honestly match our midfield depth.

    Still one tall defensive injury away from strife but things are looking good so far. And, there's still Reid, LRT, Goodes, Shaw, Rohan and Jetta to possibly get back before the end of the season.

    Agree with you as much as I hate to say it! Those players will make a massive difference and your quietly doing the business at the moment.
    Still SO pissed at Tippo. Hope he breaks a leg or something!
    PS: Im an Adelaide fan!

    Big game here in Adelaide this week. The local showdown. Adelaide play Port in the final grudge match at AAMI. This could shape both finals asperations (not that Adelaide have many and must win all 5 games and hope results go our way) but should be a brutal encounter in shitty conditions.

    Anyone watching GF today? Freo caned the swans through midfield last week... good signs for today. Really hope they win. always rated Pavlich and would love to see him lift the cup.

    It will be great for the competition for Freo to win. The last of the "older" teams not to win one and the Freo fans have taken Melbourne by storm. Go Freo. Should be a great game and a magnificent example of the game!

    How about this for being done over. power cut here... shut down just before players walked out. Listening on the radio ATM. Doesn't seem like I'm missing much.

    I used to love watching this game, total entertainment, that's what it is... where else can you see a guy run up the back of another guy to grab or punch a ball and the ref does fuck all about it....fist fights or shin kicking contests break out sporadically around an oval pitch...brilliant stuff, shame they don't show it on TV here anymore.

    What a game last night. My beloved Crows going down to the Hawks by 3 points. Amazing game and worthy of a final in round 5! Just want Geelong to smash the power tonight!

    Haha I thought this thread had been bumped because of the Ledley King appearance at the Hawthorn-Adelaide game and his conversation with Sam Mitchell.

    But anyway, I've been a North fan by entire life. We're travelling very well at the moment and still not playing our best footy.

    North are playing well and fully deserve to be top of the tree. Will be an epic Friday night this week though!

    Devastating news about big Roughy this week. Despite all the reports from the media suggesting this is extremely grim I hope he pulls through and can beat this horrible fucking disease.

    He seems like a champion bloke. I agree it does not look good. When cancer gets inside it spreads. Seen it firsthand. I wish him all the best as do i'm sure all supporters.

    Spoke to soon. North have dropped right off. Im a massive Eagles supporter. NN injury however has dampened any optimism for this season.

    And it will only get worse Friday night. Big year for my Crows this year!

    Haha absolutely mate, it turns out our best footy never came! Although the injuries didn't help.

    Yeah, awful injury for you guys to someone who could be a match winner come finals time.

    If we don't win it, which obviously we won't, then I hope the Crows get up this year. It would be a nice fuck you to all the players that left chasing cash or surf and a massive achievement after the devastation of everything that happened last year.

    Yeah I am so proud of the club, the playing group and the supporters. Has been a really trying time. I think we are a chance. Winning this week will mean a double chance and 2 home finals. Geelong in the first week will be the battle though. They have had our measure twice this year.

    You're very confident. We just beat Hawthorn and then GWS away from home week before. I think it'll be a cracker of a game . I like Adelaide and hope if we don't win the flag you guys do.

    Oh and also no Sloane...

    Yeah no Sloane will be a loss. No NikNat will be a bigger one. If Dan Talia keeps Kennedy quiet then i think we have the ammo to see you off. But it will be a CRACKING game I think. Less than 4 goals either way, but I think our boys will be ok at home.

    You were way to over confident. We taught you guys a lesson. Sexual Barrassment is the best young KP player in the competition. Get up west coast.
