    Also with you on enjoying the ride Lynda. I didn’t pick Melbourne for my top 8 before the season. I am languishing consequently in the weekly tipping. I have been a bit “ho hum” about the footy this year. I might spark up after tonight by opting to attend as a neutral. Looking forward to a grand occasion that only crowds can bring. Big test for both clubs tonight JTH.
