    Probably trolling but will answer seriously. Haven't shed a tear over the tigers since a kid as you definitely become steeled to the disappointment when you experience it over and over. Followed Richmond since I was 8-9 years old, well and truly used to it. Been to games where we had to win the last round of footy to make the 8 and have lost. So losses like last night are part and parcel.

    I must say though this year has been extreme in having close losses and throwing away leads in the last quarter. That tests the tear ductors.

    Went last night, spent most of the time at the bar. Dusty Martin's effort for the smother was awesome, can't believe they lost it after that.

    Ran 100+m with a tight hamstring. Add that plus Morris' effort in the 3rd quarter and you really should be inspired enough to win a game of football.

    Round Eighteen Tipping Update

    "Summertime and the tippin' is easy..."

    Hey, it's summer up here, ****s. Embrace your cultural cringe.

    Peasy week on the tipping front again, with even Spiké Mourinho managing 6/9. Morgie and myself manage maximums for good measure.

    No tips from Vimes, so round's lowest, yadda, yadda...

    On Norway tho, usually in other tipping comps I run a fourth week with no tips means the plug gets pulled, so unless anyone violently objects (or Vimes tips) he's gone next week.

    Weekly

    Brumby 9
    morgie 9
    Jono 8
    HDS 8
    skd 7
    Benchy 7
    howard 7
    altoz 7
    Johnners 7
    Spikey 6

    Vimes 6

    Weekly .01s to morgie and me then.

    Howard maintains his seven point advantage, but their 8 & 9 respectively means Jono and morgie join tozz on 113 correct calls, with just weekly bonuses separating them.

    Dav's southern slide continues as he slips to sixth now.

    Overall

    1) howard 120.10
    2) altoz 113.07
    3) Jono 113.06
    4) morgie 113.05
    5) Brumby 112.05
    6) skd 111.07
    7) Benchy 108.03
    8) HDS 108.02
    9) Vimes 97.05
    10) Johnners 96.01
    11) Spikey 89.04

    Ah, man.

    I've scored 2358 in DT and still lost. Bloody Maxwell. Think that puts me out of the top four too

    the only thing more surprising than seeing maxwell get that score is seeing that it's actually a well built team, and not just 9 collingwood players
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Ladder Predictor -

    At the end of the home and away, I have four teams finishing on top on 68 points (Hawks, Swans, Pies, Crows), followed by West Coast (64), Geelong and North (56), with Carlton rounding out the eight (52).

    Bombers and Dockers (48) to miss

    In the mean time:

    Is Dean "The Weapon" Robinson the most overhyped thing in AFL this year?

    Surely this guy should stop calling himself the Weapon and learn how to actually train a team so they don't ping their hamstring when they run for 10 metres at top speed?
