I has footy and I only saw post game of the Crows match, when I was on the bench I checked the score and I was so happy we were winning. By the time I got home and had a dinner and a shower, the match had finished, I saw post game roaming Brian in the Crows rooms. Here is what I took from the highlights.

 

The Crows came out firing in the first term kicking a goal inside the first minute, Jenkins was the one who kicked it. Geelong bounced back after that but then it was all Crows, Crows, and more Crows. It looked really good to see the Crows play well, we cant drop this leas against them.

 

In the second quarter the Crows are more even with Geelong but are playing much better. If you think that the Crows cant win the premiership then that is ludicrous, we can definitely win the premiership and it looks like we can beat Geelong, we lead by about 5 goals.

 

In the third quarter we are still beating Geelong, we are doing so well. We are doing the awesome running play and the linking handballs off half back. Richard Douglas is having a good game and then Rory Sloane and the Crouch brothers.

 

In the fourth quarter we go back  to our other games against Geelong, they kick 3 goals and we kick none, they might have a good fourth quarter but we have the 21 point lead and the roaming Brian, it is very good and we can win the premiership now.

Port Adelaide versus Melbourne

Port Adelaide really need a win because they need to beat more teams in the top 8. In the first quarter, Port do really bad against Melbourne and don’t even kick a goal. It looks like that they are going to lose again against a top eight team.

 

Earlier this morning I played tennis and I only played in the doubles, I won that 6-5. My partners won the singles 6-2, and the other one won 6-3. It is a bit more even in the second term but Melbourne are still on top it still looks like port are going to lose.

 

I am at the SANFL game because I am playing in the mini league game. In the first quarter Woodville West Torrens lead by a little bit. And then at the end Woodville West Torrens do well and win, in third quarter Melbourne are still doing well.

 

In the mini league game we start off really well and score a goal. Then they score a goal because someone didn’t stick to their man. In the centre bounce blake taps it to the centre half forward and he passes to me then I kick it and then he marks it and scores a point. They score another goal over the top and win, it is even in the afl and Melbourne win.

 

MELBOURNE              4.4       8.8       11.8     13.10 (88)

The Formula

Walkerville versus Broadview

7.30pm, Friday 21 July

Walkerville Oval, Adelaide

Aidan Hammond

 

We are going really well this season and if we win we are guaranteed a finals spot. We start off not the best because we have to give them one of our players and our player kicks a goal I play full back and my opponent does not get a touch. We are losing 8 to 1.

 

In the second quarter, I am playing in the wing and am doing well, our team is doing well and then we are smashing them. The thing is that our coach is away so our assistant coach is filling in.  It looks we are going to be playing finals, but we are only half way there.

 

At half time our coach tells that we are playing really well and are bouncing back. We were the only ones to score a goal to the end that we are going to and are doing well. Our player scores a goal for them, I only stay at half back and don’t go inside the 50.

 

I start off in the last quarter and have a blood nose. I have to go on the field for Kelly and go at half forward flank and get a free kick that makes my blood nose go again. Luckily the umpire doesn’t see and I score the last goal of the game. We are playing finals and we are happy.

 

Walkerville 7.3.45

Broadview 2.3.15

My Premiership Favourites:

This is a little thing that I used to do when I was younger to see who I would think would win the Premiership. Who I think will win the premiership will change throughout the season. I will do an update every time it changes. I know it is not a very good method and it is not reliable, but here goes.

 

The reigning premiers start off as favourites then whoever beats them are favourites then whoever beats them are favourites and so on. Western Bulldogs start off as favourites and they have only had one team beat them which is Fremantle and that was in Round 3. Fremantle lost against West Coast so that means that West Coast are favourites. West Coast lost to Essendon so that makes Essendon favourites. Essendon lost to Richmond so that means Richmond are favourites. Richmond lost to Sydney and Sydney haven’t lost since then so sydney are favourites.

 

This is a more complicated version of it. So the reigning premiers are the favourites and whoever beats them are favourites. If the favourites have been beaten before the round that they got beaten on then the team with highest winning margin on them and so on.

 

Western Bulldogs start favourites, the only team that has beaten them are Fremantle, Fremantle have lost 2 games. One against Geelong by 42 and the other one against Port by 89. So Port are the favourites. They have lost 2 games, 1 against Crows by 17 and 1 against GWS by 31. Therefore GWS are the favourites. GWS have only lost 1 game and that was against the Crows. The Crows have lost 1 game and that was against North Melbourne North Melbourne have lost 5 games the most against West Coast by 43.

 

West Coast have lost 2 games, the most by 50 against Hawthorn. Hawthorn have lost 5 games, the most by 86 against Gold Coast and Geelong. Gold Coast have lost 4 and Geelong have lost 2. Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29. Collingwood have lost 5 games, the most by 29 against Geelong.  Geelong have lost 2 games, the most against Collingwood by 29, we have already been down that path and it would go on a endless loop so the other team they lost to is Gold Coast.

 

Gold Coast have lost by 4 games the most by 102 against GWS. GWS have 2 games, the most by the Crows by 56, we have already been down that path so it will be on an endless loop so the other game they have lost was against St Kilda by 23.

Carlton have lost 7 games, the most by 90 against Port Adelaide.

Melbourne have lost 5 games the most by 29 against Geelong but we have already been down that path so the second highest margin is 14 against North Melbourne.

 

North Melbourne have lost 4 games, the most by 43 against West Coast but we have already been down that path, so the second most is by 42 against Sydney and GWS, the highest score out of them, was Sydney. Sydney have lost 6 games, the most by 42 against GWS. GWS have lost 3 games we have been down to of the paths so the only path left is against Carlton. Carlton have lost 7 games we have already been down 1 of the paths so the second highest margin is against Richmond. Richmond have lost 5  games the most by 76 against Adelaide.

 

Adelaide have lost 3 games we have been down 2 of those paths so the only path left is against Geelong. Geelong have lost 4 games and we have been down all of those paths except against West Coast.

If Crows and Sydney don’t lose anymore games from here they will stay favourite.
