    True. I never got a hammy playing footy, never, but I got one playing mixed netball! Later, I could jog easily, but try any faster and ouch, it really twinged! I doubt they'll risk him, nor will they leave it to him to decide....after last week! Never looked right. He'll have to hope we make it to the big one.....

    That's what happens when you take your eye off the ball when playing mixed netball Stevo.

    I'd be wary of playing him but I'll trust the medical staff. He'd be a huge in for the Grand Final if we make it though.

    I thought Laidler was excellent on Friday and if we are honest McVeigh isn't the loss he once would have been. In fact if Jones was available I don't think we'd lose much at all with that swap.

    I think of the two Rohan is the more likely to be available as there is no structural damage from the sound of it, only bruising and it seems like the type of injury you could make a speedy recovery from.

    We also never seem to fire after a bye, so good to have a week off then and not now IMO. Looks like the Cats are also going in a favorites too, which I'm happy enough with. Hopefully they will still be in holiday mode ;-)
    I'm actually a lot happier now and a lot more confident than had we taken on the hawks week 1 and gone through to the Prelim. You need to be battle hardened and we weren't but come Grand Final Day, if we make it, we will be.

    No way am I under-estimating the Cats but I think we match up well on them and I feel quietly confident. And if we make the Grand Final we should be picking from a full deck

    Laidler made up for it later in the game but his first half a dozen kicks were more than risky. His out on the full that went 20 rows back rings a bell.

    Category 1? Bloody hell, you must be the richest daisi in Christendom. Bit shocked at the prices I have to admit.

    My granny ticket should be $399.... for a GA seat on any other given day.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Ahhhh Giant....I'll still be paying for it come Xmas....but YOLO- (you only live once) and who knows if I will ever get another chance to go to the MCG to see the Swans play a prelim?

    I got on right on 9am, got superb Cat 1 seats, got all the way to the payment window, then got punted as I tried to pay for them. It took my another half an hour to get them after that but still ended up in N14 and am very happy with that. I'm happy to spend the money as I will be in Melbourne for work anyway so don't have to pay for the flights, which was a lucky break. I'll be on holidays for the GF so I won't have to cough up for that if we get past the Cats. Very happy with the seats!
    Today's a draft of your epitaph
