Crows have to get 100 Points...........

Here is a very interesting fact.

The Crows in Season 2010 reached 100 points on 7 occasions. In Season 2011, they have just once. Thus for a total of 8 times.

Lets compare this to Collingwood.

In Season 2010, Collingwood scored above 100 17 times and in Season 2011 have done it in every game. Thus, for a total of 22 times !!

What can you take out of that ?!

You need to score to win.

You cant defend to win a Premership

Is that the issue with the Crows ?......they may be good enough to make another finals, but is this
gameplan and style good enough to win a Flag ?

Sports Illustrated....

Gary Smith has written a great article on Rick and Dicky Hoyt in the
April 18th edition of Sports Illustrated.

"Yes you Can"

Collingwood too good this Anzac Day.......but not by much

There was not a lot in it.

Dyson Heppell is another "Hird lookalike" , outstanding to watch.

Great signs and they are certainly beatable.

Enjoyed the match, the boys loved the rooms afterwards, although the
mood could have been a lot better.

Jed meeting Bogut was amazing, great photo.

Anzac Day Clash.....The Bombers to win.

Expectation surrounds the Anzac Day clash with the Bombers in
rare form and expected to take it up to the Pies.

Hird understands what is needed on this great day as the pressure
and stoppage work will determine the winner.

Jobe Watson has lead from the front and the Magpies will struggle in a
game where they have yet to have had real pressure.

Three big men in for the Bombers, will give added height on a day when there
is expected to be no rain and favour the big men.

90,000+ will be there in what is a great tradition that should never change.
The silence of the Last Post bugle is amazing.

Go Bombers......

GOLD COAST SUNS !!!!........

It was predicted earlier !

Paid $17 !!

Amazing clearance work !!!!!!

Gold Coast Suns First Win Today ?..........

Can the Gold Coast break thru today against Port Adelaide.

Power have always struggled post a Showdown game.

At $17 a win, could be a decent bet ?......

They have to win sometime !.............
