The bombers looked very good last night.

I will be heading out to the swans today hoping for some hall/plugger inspired magic against the Premiers!

Where are you sitting Dann? I am thinking of going, depends on what time Easter lunch with my sister winds up. These early game starts are not as convenient as the ol' 2:10pm starts are they?

PM me your mobile number and I'll give you a call.

Certainly did on my lunch break at work Jono, fantastic.

McLeod looked sensational, he did well as did the crows, look for them to make a charge towards the finals laugh

Very innacurate were the doggies though, and they looked to be in shambles against the Crows, when are they not laugh ,

Though Adelaide looked fairly convincing and certainly went on with it.

without mcleod, adelaide hardly have anything, no big goal kicking forward, they can only rely on their midfield. My team Carlton will be good in a few games, they didn't have whittnal, or hulme or freeborn, and it was mckernans first game for the year. yet again carltons shots for goal let them down, we could have been up by 17 points late in the 3rd quarter but missed 2 shots on goal and let the saints back in. the saints thought they had won the flag. hopefully we can bounce back against the swans. 5 out of 7 tips for me so far this round

Adelaide played well considering they played 3 qts without Ricciuto. Given proper delivey into the forward line (bickley needs to learn how to kick) the likes of schell and fitzgerald will be successful.

Macca was great and smart/edwards did their part. Goodie was a little quiet but kane Johnson certainly stepped up once the roo went off!

GO THE CROWS!

can we have a poll to see which team people follow because it looks as if there are a few adelaide fans out there!

Yes CC..... laugh there are wink

It was good to see the strong 500 Adelaide fans behind goals at Colonial, they were louder than the 18000 doggy fans.

Boy wasnt Mcleod magnificent, his goals were incredible.

Tomorrow, You could easily say Hawthorn but ya never know laugh

Being a true blue west aussie I spose i will comment on the derby today.
First i will start with the eagles.
They played quite well with a near full strenght side with a good even performance.Wilson kicked 6 and phil kicked 4.Now the eagles have got the state going i am pretty sure they will play terrible next week and dissapoint us all,once again we think they have it,but they really dont.

Freo on the other hand without farmer really lacked that excitement,the spark they needed didnt really turn out.Overall they didnt play very well but only lost by 3 goals.With a number of good players having a bad day then im sure they will shape up next week.

Looking to next week:
1.Eagles in melbourne to face the maggies:Like i have said they will dissapoint us.They will lose by 5 goals.
2.Freo can pencil in a win against the saints.They will be too strong and playing at home.freo by 4 goals

Hmmmmmmmm,

The Saints/Freo match will certainly be a lot closer than that, think it will be a Saints victory. They looked really imposing at times against Carlton eek Whats going on???????

Well for once im happy! Crows thank u very much.

Mcleod is a freak, a complete genius - makes hard things looked so easy. He won the game for us in that last quarter no doubt. I also like the look of Graham Joncock (watch how u say it wink ) he seems to be a bit like Byron Pickett in nature. He's my tip for a rising star.

Rainlover, the crows have more than just mcleod. Goodwin is a complete footballer with a great brain and Ricciuto is as tough as they come. Edwards is highly underrated, and Hart, keeps the back 6 in touch. Stevens is vital and Johnson is very good as well. Throw, Bickley, Doughty (rising star) and Smart in there and uve got an accomplished team capable of tearing any team apart.

Notice that we r the only team to beat Brisbane in our past 2 meetings. Both at the GABBA.

Lennie cool

We were the only team that last year didn't lose to the best 2 teams and the premiers. we beat brisbane by 76 points and beat essendon twice (once without silvagni, koutoufides and bradley) i was lucky enough to see the first one (it must have been our unlikely victory that bought on the april 2001 rain event a fortnight later laugh .) Adelaide have no big forwards, i think mcleod is an excellent player, but if he gets injured the team could be put way out of balance. Everyone interested in footy should join the AFL's comp, where you enter in a team and the best team winds you a playstation2 or tickets to the grand final

Just watch out for Adelaide though, they seem to have a little more bite...as do the saints.

Brisbane played fairly well, but not they're best. Though it was the Adelaide game the was the one to watch today...just fantastic.

rainlover,
(just reiterating on what lennie has already said)
question - if adelaide are nothing without mcleod then why dont opposition clubs put three people on him? answer - because adelaide have an assortment of good players to keep down. Also, you say that adelaide doesnt have any big forwards, maybe you are thinking of last year, but this year my friend you might want to have a look at the size of the forwards we have. For instance, against the WB we had mark stevens, daniel schell and the biggest of all was ryan fitzgerald who is tall enough to be a ruckman, yet also has exceptional athletic ability. We could put ben marsh who is a ruckman down there as well.
Anyway on to the subject of carlton beating last years finalists. Well carlton have been a good side in the past and are ok at the moment. But, DAMN, do they get a good run with things such as umpires and the draw year in year out.

On the subject of umpires, the crows had to endure a 8 frees for 16 against, which, even if the count was reversed wouldnt have been fair. Oh well that's the way it is for certain teams, even if your better you are still no certainty to win.

UMPIRES!!!! it was 16-8 in st kilda's favour and you say we are lucky with free kicks, what about when williams pushed the ump in the face, his anger wasn't aimed at him, and it ended his career. another reason i dont want adelaide doing well is that they bring on el nino, remember 97/98 when they won the flag IT ALSO BROUGHT ON EL NINO. Whenever an interstate team win the flag, melbourne has a dry year, like last year, but when a melbourne team wins, it is usually a wet year. answering your question about mcleod, he kicks the MAJORITY of your goals like TODAY and without him, the talls you mentioned aren't quality players and adelaide will suffer laugh without him
