  1. Andrew Starkie says:

    Had to laugh when Mick said it wasn’t about him. First time for everything, I suppose.

  2. Dan Crane says:

    I note that Mick now wears a suit now he is the Carlton don (no pun intended). And there is apparently no social class structure in Australia!
    What a super Sunday of footy it’ll surely be.
    Hope you’re spot on JTH. I’m doing an Acca with the same.

  3. I expect the Pies will win, but i imagine it will be a dour struggle, with the result being closer than some tipsters imagine .

    Carlton; who will kick the goals? Betts is a huge blow, Hampson had the yips last week, but is a good mark close to goal, being handy up forward in 2012, but why isn’t Walker positioned closer to goal. He had a productive season last year, and is a proven goal kicker; not many other Blues are.

    Pies by 3 points .


  4. djlitsa says:

    90 points will see us through – or about 13 goals. Walker 3; Murphy 2; Garlett 2; Rowe 2; Gibbs 1; Yarran 1; Judd 1; Kreuzer 1. Casboult 6 behinds. Should win by 2 goals!

  5. Skip of Skipton says:

    Should Rosehill be kind to me tomorrow, I will be taking some of that even money about Hawthorn. The Eagles just aren’t as good as most pundits assume. Hawthorn will be fired up to mete out some punishment after Monday’s SNAFU against the Cats.

  6. Sean Gorman says:

    John ‘strife’ was what you were in when you skewed the Chesson off the boot into the laundry winda. CAAAAaarltton are in the type of shit that S Weaver found herself in when all her cobs were dead and she was looking at that big ass ugly bastard that looked like Justin Lepich before he got braces.

    heaveho SG

  7. Skip of Skipton says:

    Kerr-Ching! Not a bad side, the Hawks.

  8. Peter_B says:

    You’re a good judge Skip. Both your Perth ‘good things’ got up.
