Doggies look pretty good again this year .

When Sydney looked like they were on fire towards of the end of the third quarter and half way into the last the Doggies came back basically with force .Especially when the Buddy show got going...

They kicked a few goals in quick succession to extinguish any hope the Swans had of winning.

The decision of a free kick in front of goals with the forced behind seemed a bit dodgy to me though.

great game between two up and coming teams tonight, Essendon and Brisbane had a great tussle at the Gabba. Dons were up by 42 but Lions hit back and took the lead at one point, Essendon fought better in the 4th to record the win. but gee both teams were at the bottom of the ladder last year and both are vastly different and on the up!

Watch out for young Fantasia from the Bombers too, going to a real star of the game in years to come. Essendon take on Carlton next week, always close games. Then we have a real big test with Adelaide in Adelaide followed by Anzac Day. So some big games coming but a chance for the Bombers to have an impressive start to the season.

Eagles only came good in the last quarter against the Saints .

Saints led for three quarters of the game .Until Kennedy kicked 3 successive goals to seal their fate.

Saints got a really good backline though and great midfield and are going to win lots of games this year.

Finally the Dockers have won a game ...yay!

Having a stronger backline certainly does make a difference .

If they can beat the reigning premiers then they can beat anyone .....so they say..

What a week of upsets this round has been . Only picked 3 winners .

Good to see a few upsets though evens up the competition but who would of thought 3 finalist from last season would be on the bottom. Hawks ,Swans and Kangaroos still waiting for their first win..

Yes CF Suns are having a stellar day ...first time they ever beaten the Hawks.

Mick yes Bombers seemed to not take any of their opportunities albeit limited in front of goal in the second half.

Go Dockers hopefully on the way back up the ladder especially if they keep playing the way they did on Saturday night against the Doggies.

Yes those pesky crows look good don't they, tho they will miss McGovern who is an absolute star in the making. Still have the jury out on the tigers, they look pretty good at times but other times look a bit rattled. After this weekend tho I reckon its anyone's flag even if it is just after three rounds. Hopefully injuries don't defy a team going places this season, Max gawn a case in point.

Not for Hawks fans, like myself.

Very bad start to the season.

The Pies looking a bit average yesterday .Jamie Elliot looks like he was a bit underdone but to be expected after so long out of the game.
Saints played well though.

Dockers had a good win against the Demons , only just though.
McCarthy's goal in the final minutes won it for the Dockers .Hes a great addition to the forward line which needed some fire after retirement of Pavlich.

Hawks going to have a long season if they start putting things together.
They got the players just lacking passion to win .

Hopefully a sign that the comp is evening up with the 3 bottom sides all last year finalist.

Anyway Dockers had a fall from grace last year about time for others to have a go... wink

Dockers edged out the luckless Roos for their 3rd consecutive win . Two weeks in a row they have won within the last 2 minutes..

Adelaide far too strong for the Suns.

Bullies had a amazing last quarter to win against the Lions and to add to the party with the celebration of Bob Murphy's 300th game.

Good on the Bombers beating the luckless Pies on Anzac day.
Overpowered them in the second half .All their young players doing extremely well esp Joe Daniher, Orazio Fantasia, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti, .
