    Got a two-for-one deal to the Lions v Kangas this Saturday night.

    Get slaughtered when I go to a Lions game (me and the Lions!)

    Am dying to sing the Lions song at the end of the game (they only play it if they win).

    Been a while.

    Luckily there are some other factors that count other than whether or not you turn up to the game, like for example Jonathan Brown coming back. I think he'll be rusty but his presence will have an impact on the rest of the team.

    North Melbourne haven't beaten Brisbane at the Gabba since 2005, although I don't think it's the travel factor given their good record at Carrara. It might be a bit harsh calling it a must-win game for Brisbane given they are a rabble and their season is over anyway, but seriously, if they don't get up for this one then Voss should hand in his parking voucher and team store discount card.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Browny won't be rusty.

    He's the best first-game-back player in modern times.

    Will kick a big this bloke.

    Grima out with a finger

    You can not underestimate how important he is to North Melbourne.

    Sounds like Mark Harvey is back into 'make excuses to avoid scrutiny' mode.

    After bizarrely whinging about West Coast's very late replacements on the weekend (bizarre considering it was Kerr and Embley out for Sheppard and Gaff and they got beaten by over 5 goals anyway), now he is claiming he only has 25 fit players to choose from.

    Well, they've got 39 on the main list and 14 injured players, and two of their rookies are included in that number, so that's 27 from the main list plus the 5 fit rookies. Two of those are already upgraded and playing, incidentally. Also, three of the players on the injury list are listed as 'test', which is potentially three more fit players to choose from. So the way I see it, they have at least 32 to choose from, and with a bit of luck, 35.

    Gets a few people off your back when you manipulate the numbers though. He's back to the Mark Harvey of 2008.
