Who is your tip in this game Billy ?
I'll pick the borough by 20 points.
The ex Sandy players are more than handy Billy and could go along way in helping the borough get over the line.
The dogs talls will naturally be a worry as Box Hill talls proved a handful 2 weeks ago. Ayrsey would have done a bit of homework on the dogs.

Have to disagree Footscray/Western Bulldogs Seconds by 25pts Crowd if it stays fine 7-8000 which would give the match a bit of atmosphere.

Quite easily as it would be all about the MONEY!

Billy,
I got into trouble for saying that.
Amazing how the truth stings.
Very loyal to the dollar but not to the clubs that gave them a start & developed them. Guess I'm too old fashioned.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Borough by 15 points. Finals are different and they've got the experience to pull through.

I don't buy that port is paying them so much. What could they possibly earn?

They want to play at a club that is

A) stand alone (ie not an Afl reserves team where they're played according to the whims of the afl club)
B) competing for a spot at the top end of the ladder. This would be for both personal satisfaction and because AFL recruiters would be more likely to notice you if you're winning.

Until recently, that meant Port. Now it could be willy as well.

My dad works with a guy who is mates with marigliani, he said he came to port because he wanted to play for a standalone team and playing under ayres was a big factor

Game day and it looks sensational outside. I'm just heading down to a pregame bbq at StationHotels place.

Please let the footy gods smile on Port Melbourne and we win through in an epic to play once again in a Grand Final.

Footscray have been brilliant in their first year back in the comp, and it's going to be one hell of a battle.

Hopefully its a quality game that is a great advertisement for the competition.
