Mr Wrap is back with his Round V prognostications. Does this make his Striped Marvels good things over the Handbags at the Paddock that Grew tomorrow?
The Round V Pre Wrap: “Never hit a man with glasses, and never hit a drunk. As tempting as it might be.”
For the Philosophical Marngrook Follower… Here’s the Wrap’s crystal ball look at round 3.
Mr Wrap surveys the Round 1 results and reckons it will be a bumper season. Of course one team was scarily dominant, but he still thinks the Hawks might give his Striped Marvels a run for their money in October.
Mr Wrap is back with his learned prognostications on the Round 1 games; Season 2015 and all things sport.
Mr Wrap lauds the Leafblowers and draws the curtains around the lamentable Harbourtowners. The time honoured Beitzel, Fevola, Flower and Krudd Memorial Medals all go to worthy recipients.
Mr Wrap has seen every Grand Final since Jock McHale and Checker Hughes were coaching, so it is worth noting the advice of our sage tipster.

Mr Wrap runs the ruler over the AFL semis and finds the favourites frail and fallible. He has scoured the nation for the sound of a happy team singing “Tigerland” and brings you his Mid Gippsland GF report from Mirboo North.
Mr Wrap’s usual peerless review of the weekend’s games. He says his Tigers loss to the Tealers was just a flesh wound. He is more concerned about the prospects of the Mauve Miasma and the Pivotonians. The Flying Syringes got what was coming.
The Long Suffering Pre Rap Faithful are all on board the Tiger Train to the City of Churches for Sunday matins. Mr Wrap shares his wisdom and experience about the Finals outcomes, but tips the Tigers anyway.

Mr Wrap run the ruler over Round 21 and finds the Tigers win in Adelaide the highlight of the weekend (surprise, surprise). He’s still got his teeth into the Essendon drugs scandal/farce/yawnfest.
He’s back. You’ll know it’s not crap, because you’ll read all the good oil in the Pre Wrap for Round 21. Months under grey skies has not dimmed the great man’s wit and insight (and little Jimmy Twoshoes cops a few on the way past).
Mr Wrap has fled Punt Road (no long suffering for him) and is spending his winter as Bernie Tomic’s psychoanalyst in the Old Dart. He has not forsaken his loyal readers and shares his wisdom on all sporting matters.
Its the Bloodbath Round for Mr Wrap as finals pretenders show their true colours, and Tigers, Blues and Eagles fans ‘fess up to the awful truth about their teams.
Tiger traditionalist and tragic (is there a difference?) Mr Wrap offers his tips for Round 10. He is too distressed at Saturday and Monday’s events at the Paddock that Grew to offer his usual philosophical discourse.
This came in headed “The Weap” from “The Wrap”. Don’t know how much more they can take down at Punt Road, but as ever Mr Wrap finds some plastic soldiers in the corn flakes box of weekend sport.
