The Crows Game:

Bounce Back

Melbourne v Adelaide

7.10pm, Saturday 15 July

Marrara Oval, Darwin

Aidan Hammond

 

I am just lying around on a Saturday and I will just do nothing today but I have the idea of going to the North Adelaide versus Norwood, Dad goes for Sturt but I convinced him to go for Norwood. First the match starts off with North Adelaide, then after that we get it level at half time, in the 3rd quarter we lead in the last quarter we blow it out. Me and Dad were here but we found my uncle Dave and my cousins Elliot and Martha.

 

At the end I go home and go for a run on the treadmill. then I go and see the Crows game, we start off strong but Demons get a goal we finish off well, it looks like we are going to bounce back from the last game. I am a bit nervous because last time we dropped our lead.

 

In the second quarter the Demons improve in the start of the quarter. It is happening like it did last time, hopefully we can bounce back. In the last bit of the quarter we score quite a lot of goals and are on a roll, we are playing very well.

 

In the 3rd quarter it is a bit uneasy, the lead gets down to 21 points. We are dropping off a bit and are having a bit of bad luck. I just really hope that we hold onto the lead, if we lose this Geelong or GWS will be top. I want to be top, that would be nice.

 

In the last quarter we blow the lead out and we are doing so well, it is good for our percentage to keep the ball rolling. We can definitely win the premiership, but Melbourne are doing good, they could win the premiership like the Bulldogs did last year.

Already Gone Already Here

Port Adelaide v North Melbourne

1.40pm, Saturday 15 July

Adelaide Oval

Aidan Hammond

 

Port Adelaide are already here, North Melbourne are already gone. They do so well in the first quarter, it is so good how they are doing, North Melbourne deserve a big whopping, I feel sorry for all of those fans from North Melbourne.

 

In the second quarter North Melbourne do a bit better they are restricting Port and getting back in the area where North Melbourne could win, the thing is that Port have a really percentage so then they can blow North Melbourne out.

 

In the third quarter Port get it up back to their winning ways, North are good but it is a bit rough for them to lose four veterans. In the last bit of the quarter North Melbourne get a couple of goals. They are 17 on the ladder, and I think they will stay there.

 

At the start of the last quarter North Melbourne don’t do that bad, they take the momentum from the end of the 3rd. It is good that at the end Port blow it out, Port Adelaide are good and are playing well they had a big win today against the crashing North Melbourne.

 

PORT ADELAIDE             8.1     11.4     14.9     19.13     (127)

My Premiership Favourites:

This is a little thing that I used to do when I was younger to see who I would think would win the Premiership. Who I think will win the premiership will change throughout the season. I will do an update every time it changes. I know it is not a very good method and it is not reliable, but here goes.

 

The reigning premiers start off as favourites then whoever beats them are favourites then whoever beats them are favourites and so on. Western Bulldogs start off as favourites and they have only had one team beat them which is Fremantle and that was in Round 3. Fremantle lost against West Coast so that means that West Coast are favourites. West Coast lost to Essendon so that makes Essendon favourites. Essendon lost to Richmond so that means Richmond are favourites. Richmond lost to Sydney and Sydney haven’t lost since then so sydney are favourites.

 

This is a more complicated version of it. So the reigning premiers are the favourites and whoever beats them are favourites. If the favourites have been beaten before the round that they got beaten on then the team with highest winning margin on them and so on.

 

Western Bulldogs start favourites, the only team that has beaten them are Fremantle, Fremantle have lost 2 games. One against Geelong by 42 and the other one against Port by 89. So Port are the favourites. They have lost 2 games, 1 against Crows by 17 and 1 against GWS by 31. Therefore GWS are the favourites. GWS have only lost 1 game and that was against the Crows. The Crows have lost 1 game and that was against North Melbourne North Melbourne have lost 5 games the most against West Coast by 43.

 

West Coast have lost 2 games, the most by 50 against Hawthorn. Hawthorn have lost 5 games, the most by 86 against Gold Coast and Geelong. Gold Coast have lost 4 and Geelong have lost 2. Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29. Collingwood have lost 5 games, the most by 29 against Geelong.  Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29, we have already been down that path and it would go on a endless loop so the other team they lost to is Gold Coast.

 

Gold Coast have lost by 4 games the most by 102 against GWS. GWS have 2 games, the most by the Crows by 56, we have already been down that path so it will be on an endless loop so the other game they have lost was against St Kilda by 23. St Kilda have lost 3 games, the most by 38 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 3 games and 2 have been mentioned already, the other game was against Essendon.

 

Essendon have lost 4 games, the most by 65 against Crows. Crows have lost 2 games but we have already been down one of those paths, the one that we haven’t been down through was against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 29 against Geelong. Geelong have lost 4 games and we have been down 3 of lose paths. The other one is against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths. The most by 61 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games, the most against the Crows but we have already been down that path so second is against Collingwood for 38. Collingwood have lost 7 games, the most by 29 against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games, the most by 90 against Port Adelaide.

 

Port Adelaide have lost 5 games, The most by 70 against Essendon. Essendon have lost 6 games. We have been down 2 paths so the 3rd the most losing margin is against Fremantle by 37. Fremantle have lost 6 games the most by Crows by 100. The Crows have lost 3 games the most by North Melbourne but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is against Melbourne. Melbourne have lost 5 games the most by 29 against Geelong but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is 14 against North Melbourne.

 

North Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 43 against West Coast but we have already been down that path, so the second most is by 42 against Sydney and GWS, the highest score out of them, was Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, the most by 42 against GWS. GWS have lost 3 games we have been down to of the paths so the only path left is against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games we have already been down 1 of the paths so the second highest margin is against Richmond. Richmond have lost 5  games the most by 76 against  Adelaide.

 

Adelaide have lost 3 games we have been down 2 of those paths so the only path left is against Geelong. Geelong have lost 4 games and we have been down all of those paths except against West Coast. West Coast have lost 5 games we have been down 2 of those paths. The third most is against Richmond.

 

Richmond have lost 5 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest path is against Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, we have already been down one of those paths so the second highest is against West Coast.

 

West Coast have lost 5 games and we have already been down 3 of those paths so the fourth highest margin is against GWS by 8. GWS have lost 4 games and we have been down 3 of those paths so the only path left is against Sydney. Sydney have lost 7 games, we have been down 2 of those paths so the 3rd highest margin is by 28 against Port.

 

Port have lost 6 games, we have been down 2 of those paths, the next match is against Adelaide by 17. Adelaide have lost 4 games, we have been down 3 of those paths and the only left is against Hawthorn. Hawthorn have lost 9 games, we have been down one of those paths so the second highest margin is against Geelong, Geelong have lost 4 games and he have been down all of those paths so Geelong are favourites.

 

If Geelong and Sydney don’t lose anymore games from here they will stay favourite.

  1. Dave Brown says:

    Hopefully Geelong loses a game this week. Not sure what to take from the two Adelaide teams’ games, Aidan. Adelaide beating an understrength Melbourne side with a bar of soap is better than losing and Port still hasn’t beaten a good team when they’re good. And, as always, go the legs!

  2. Thanks Dave.
