  1. Andrew Starkie says

    As footy’s never been here before, it’s ok to say I don’t know what’s going to happen. How will Ess come out? Will they be flattened or motivated by the past week? Will The Tigers be more interested in Ess’s game than their own? Port should beat Carlton and the Cats should account for Bris. But, both may have their eyes on next week. North got within 14 points of Hawthorn without Swallow, Grima and Thommo – possibly our most important player. We can beat the Pies but if either carl or Bris win, the wind will go from our sails. North being North, i can see us winning without the above players, only to carry a ‘we shouldn’t be here’ attitude into week one of Sept and be thumped by the Tigers. Appreciate your ongoing faith this year, Harmsy.

  2. Let the Cat out of the bag there JTH. “Corey Enright continues to buy the ultimate popper-upper.” Anti-ageing drugs? Bet he scores for Chappy and Bartel as well.
