    Good One John
    I do like to live somewhere there are four seasons for all the reasons you suggested
    Always find it hard to drink red above Cairns at any time of year
    According to my brother who is better judge than me Gold Coast and GWS will share
    every premiership on offer in a few years time
    How good is G. Ablett Jr !
    My heart says Crows to replace GC in the eight ( especially after the win against the pies) My head says GC will stay there
