    Rumour is we could be the Friday night game June 12 versus a "big" Victorian club.

    manufactured trade controversy = temporary blockbuster game.

    Can the AFL be more shallow ?

    Ooh, I don't mind playing Essendon!
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Our games for rounds 2 to 5 are: Bombers, Roos, Bulldogs and Demons. The only away match is against the Roos. All seem quite winnable to me. Though I might have a slightly inflated view of our talent, since I've been watching our wins from 2016 and 17.

    And now that I think of it, I'd prefer a run of home games at the end of the season; as there's some chance that crowds will be allowed back by then.

    Pretty good. They all feel like matches that could go either way. Opposition who are hard to gauge, rather than heavyweights of the competition. If we go well we could really build some momentum. We need to win at least 3/4 if we want to play finals. The home game against the Bulldogs feels like possibly the toughest one given the short turnaround after 6 + 5 day breaks.

    It's getting closer. It's getting real. I'm a little bit excited.

    Probably be referred to as the "Daniher Cup" even though JD is still on the mend.

    Reckon I'll be watching a lot of games in R2, have missed the footy and who knows how this will all turn out?

    Really want to know what's happening with the 20 players who are fit but not selected. If they don't play how will they get match fitness and push their case. Really difficult for first year players and guys like Ling to wave their hand. Think the AFL needs to address this quickly otherwise it will really favour teams with few/no injuries and more mature squads.

    I have looked at the broadcast guide for round 2 specially FTA Sydney and the only game scheduled for broadcast into Sydney is our game - surely this is not right. Has there been any changes to FTA TV over the last couple of months?
