    In Melbourne maybe. The predictions are pretty good elsewhere

    Sounds like fairly light showers are possible, so could be a little greasy but hopefully nothing much more.

    Maybe you should be flying north Flying South?

    If the forecast is light showers then it won't rain. They predict light showers in Melbourne every day. Doesn't rain much down here these days.

    I hope it is a dry night, though.

    They can't even predict 24 hours out. Last Friday night I had tickets in the open so kept a close eye on the forecast. The rain was meant to clear by the afternoon but of course it rained during the game!!

    I bought my tickets this morning for this week's game and they are undercover so I'm happy ????.

    Provided everyone is healthy, Melican for Cunningham and that's all.

    As I have posted elsewhere, I think we should be very conservative in terms of playing players with injuries and avoid doing so. Pick healthy players in good form. Fortunately we seem to be blessed in that regard at the moment.

    Umpires for Friday: Rosebury, Meredith and Nicholls. Could probably do without Meredith. Nicholls can be a touch erratic at times, but he tends to umpire both sides, unlike a few I could mention. And he has improved over the years, he's not the surrealist performance artist that he used to be.

    On the AFL site, Horse was saying that he probably won't assign any sort of a tag on Dangerfield or Selwood. Instead, he will just let Kennedy and Parker go head to head with those two. On current form, I feel confident that we'll win that battle.

    Not panicking just yet. It's when Meredith and Stevic come together that we know we have a problem. Cannot believe they dropped the ump from the Port v WC game that gave that last free kick. In real time it looked a blatant free kick. However those low lifes who umpired last years GF are rewarded with another finals series. Probably GF as well.

    Yes, and they dropped Chamberlain, as well. Is it too late for a campaign?
