Best week in the best city on Earth.

    What are people's predictions for the week? My (totally unbiased) predictions are:
    Brownlow: Dane Swan
    GF: Collingwood
    Norm Smith: Nick Maxwell
    Unfortunately no Brownlow on up here until 11:30pm. We don't really get the GF week experience up here as such. However, Saturday is an awesome day - builds into an awesome crescendo. It's just a great event.

    Brownlow: Swan
    GF: Collingwood
    Norm: Didak

    AFL grand final day was way better when they had the TAC cup, then the ressies and then the seniors all on the one day.

    Definitely agree. At least they've stopped having the ****s from Australian Idol on.

    The way I look at it, at the moment Collingwood you'd think may beat the Saints 7 time out of 10.

    However, as Ross Lyon said, each finals game is a 'random chance, small sample'.

    Collingwood do look great at the moment though. The Saints have really improved in recent weeks. If anything though, the GF may have come a few weeks too early for them. They look to be running into some really fine form but, from my untrained eye, will be a better team in a couple of weeks if anything.

    Collingwood, prior to the last game against St Kilda, had a very ordinary record against the Sainters. The big issue is whether they have someone who can go with a fit Riewoldt. He's been the thorn in their side so many times over the past couple of years, but due to injury has been a non-entity in both games this year - one where he got injured, the other where he'd just returned.

    Ben Reid's the obvious choice I guess, be a massive day for him.

    Just got back from an intense weekend of cricket and am stuffed. Well done to the Pies, went to the game, spent most of the time in the Frank Grey. Collingwood's numbers were just everywhere, always had more at the ball, but also would have more wherever the next kick went to. I think how well they play the 'G will be a big tangible in who wins.

    Yeah, I've been commenting on their ability to get numbers to the contest ever since the game. Was phenominal.

    Oh, and thanks to Tim Lane for jumping on our ashes, just to try and cover up what a dick he made of himself earlier in the season.

    It's good to see rugby league does do something right. Now please bear with my ignorance, what would happen if the scores were level at full-time, do you just play another quarter and whoever is leading wins?

    Nope, go around next week and play a replay.

    Love it, hope there are three draws in a row, TBH.

    Uhhhh that.

    Putting money on:
    1. Ablett on the Brownlow, hedging at about Rnd 11 when he's winning and the odds plummet, cos I think Swan will start closing after the half-way mark and eventually take over.
    2. Putting money on St Kilda, St Kilda/Hayes and St Kilda/Riewoldt

    St Kilda are paying $3.1, as if I could resist that.



    oh and and Collingwood/Leigh Brown
