    All good with me - if we hit $8+ to win the flag, Im getting on with a decent few $$$. We haven't started well, but its a marathon, not a sprint, and we will get better.

    We play GWS and Gold Coast as well as Geelong and North and we get blasted for having an easy draw.

    Port played Melbourne, GWS and Gold Coast as well as Adelaide in the first 4 rounds but no one is complaining about them having an easy draw. Instead, they're getting praised for having the best start (4-0) in their history.

    What is going on?

    Remember Port suffer from the same media ignorance as we do, even in SA. So everyone is surprised they look vaguely competent now. Remember they lost to GC and GWS in 2011 and 2012 and everyone had them bottom 4 again.

    So basically Port are getting praised for improving from the same lowly bracket as those teams to being clearly several classes above them.
