    Haha, Carey on EMT, showing him taking about a gazillion marks on Tim McGrath.

    Loved Timmy, supposedly during pre-season would get to work at 4am, do four hours and then get to training at 9am, then do four more hours after being flogged on the track. But he was never big (or good, obviously) enough to do anything to stop him.

    North have been playing awesome football though. Definitely in better shape than anyone else 5th-8th to make a GF.

    Really? Better than Geelong, even?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    There are going to be some absolute humdinger games these finals, but really the fate of the flag rests on whoever wins the 1 v 4 and 2 v 3 games.

    Not much separated Carlton last year from WCE who were fourth, and the semi-final over in Perth between the two was an absolute cracker, and knocked the stuffing out of the Eagles. Compare that to Hawthorn, who played the Swans (who along with St Kilda and Essendon, were another level below WCE and Carlton, who themselves were a level below the top 3 again), and the effort they put up in the Prelim compared to WCE, where they probably should have beaten Collingwood.

    There's going to be some ripping games throughout, but it's going to favour the winners of that first week enormously. Tough to see them not making the GF, whoever it is.

    Yeah, with only one bye this year, the week off for the victor of 1 v 4 and 2 v 3, will be like gold and, as you say, very much put them in the box seat. That said, the teams that finish 5-8 this year (namely, WCE, Geelong, North, Carlton perhaps) all seem in form. Additionally, there's no standout top four side this year, in my view. So it's quite open.

    I also think, as born out by that WCE v Carlton final last year (where Carlton lost by a bee's dick at arguably the hardest away venue in AFL) the home ground advantage in finals is not as telling as it is in the regular season. Everyone is "up" at finals time and the away team, having made finals, is a high quality opponent.

    The weirdest thing about that was Adelaide were always going to make top 4 at the time he said it. Wasn't even pre-season or anything.
