In one of the most anticipated encounters of the year the Carlton Football Club will be taking on Brendan Fevola, I mean the Brisbane Lions, in a match which is sure to be remembered. Last week the Lions had come from behind win against the Eagles, after their new ‘twin towers’ in Jonathan Brown and Brendan Fevola came through with the goods. For the Blues, they came out firing against a very young Richmond side and came out victors pretty easily, proving they can win without Fevola.
In these two teams past five encounters, the Blues have won 4 games (by an average of 7 points) to the Lions 1 win at last year’s Quarter Final, which interestingly enough was by 7 points. So expect this match to be another close encounter. (more…)
Is it time to turn up the heat on Dean Bailey? After taking the helm at the Melbourne Football Club two years ago, Bailey has had a tough time of coaching in the big time. From his 45 games as senior coach, Bailey has only guided his team to 7 wins. (more…)

Round one always throws us some curve-balls (mind the baseball terminology). This round was no exception. Lets have a look at how the biggest questions have been answered. (more…)
Fremantle – 17.16 (118)
Adelaide – 9.8 (62)
It was a close first quarter in the west with each team managing just two goals each. The game had a slow start but come the second quarter Fremantle stunned the visitors by kicking 7 goals to two. They headed into the main break with a 6 goal lead. Adelaide fought back in the third quarter, but only to let the Dockers back in and stretch the lead again. Fremantle got off to the best start for the season they could have asked for, smashing a team that many tipped for the top four this year by 56 points. (more…)
Western Bulldogs – 13.15 (93)
Collingwood – 19.15 (129)
One of the most anticipated matches of the round lived up to expectations. Collingwood came out firing early and ruined Brad Johnson’s 350th game celebrations by defeating the Western Bulldogs by 36 points at Etihad Stadium.
The Bulldogs started off slowly and could not find the momentum and spring they had during the NAB Cup. In the second quarter however, they cut a 5 goal deficit down to 9 points and seemed to be back in the game. The third quarter was intense and goal for goal at the beginning until the Pies steadied in the later stages of the third and for much of the fourth to win the match. (more…)
