Well here we go again.

Half way through the week and football time again.

I been trying to think of a theme or something funny to get the whole thing going, but nothing tonight springs to mind.

So not sure where to go from here.

I thought I can't go the pie thing again.

There seems to be nothing sports wise to relate the footy to.

So maybe just get down to it and try to get a few right.I gotta say, I did ok last week,I tipped 7.

Much better than the previous weeks.

But better not skite about it, because the old saying, after the Lord Mayor, comes the night cart.

Which takes me back to the old Goldfields days of the night carters doing their round and picking up the pans.

Mmm maybe a few don't know what a night carter was.

Like the Toasters, this week I am back in the comfort of my warm security blanket and feeling a bit like Linus.

Fair dinkum, you gotta be kidding me.

Thursday night football......... again.

And then again and again for five weeks.

Gimmee a break.

Just when I thought the early rush to write was over!!!!!!!!

I am as shattered as the Toasters supporters after the debacle of last week.

My form was about at the same level.

But Fox footy promote Thursday night football as Pie night.

I wonder which one is better.We here in WA enjoy the Mrs Macs, or maybe the Culleys pie.

That is if you are from Freo.And any one who follows footy in WA, really has to be from Freo.....don't they!!

The South Aussies have their pie floater to try to ...

Greetings from the not so sunny Gold Coast .Wet, wet, wet, today.

Our last day away, home on the big silver bird tomorrow, via Sydney.

Throat still recovering from the excitement of last Sundays great win.

Another big weekend of AFL this weekend.

Some crucial games.

Seems it doesn't get any easier.

 

Friday starts the week with Geelong V Bulldogs

Played down at Kardinya park ,where it will be wet and cold. Not sure the Doggies will enjoy that.

The Cats at the moment are playing what seems like bruise free football.

This really is unusual for them.

Maybe a game at home in the bleak weather will bring them back to life.

Doggies not travelling as well this year as they were last, but still clinging to the top areas of the ...

MMM not sure what this weekend holds in store for we football followers this weekend.

After the last two weeks of battering, the bruises from the first week are turning that horrid colour they do when healing.

But gee last week’s bruises will be there for a long time before beginning the healing process.

Shattered and battered.

I said if you tipped nine last week you were telling fibs or knew nothing about football.

But one fella in Perth had it right, he tipped nine, and has got $45,000 to prove it.

No fibbing there.

A bashing from the footy a bashing from the Government over everything in the budget, don't we ever get an even break!!!

Hopefully this week is not as stressful as previous weeks and I can do more than pick ...

Shees, talk about gun shy.

Not sure I should go on here and have a go.

After last weeks debacle, well for me it was.

I have to say I am fearful of what lays ahead this round.

I think it is even harder than last week.

This week will be like skating on thin ice.

I stopped bobbing like a cork in the ocean and sank directly to the bottom.

Some tipsters went down like Wlad Klitschko against Anthony Joshua last weekend.

Like tipsters last week some of the team lost some credibility, Tiggers, Sydney, Hawks to name a few.

And I know, I know, some will say "What about your Dockers Ken?"

Well ok if you insist.

Some teams took an absolute pounding, pardon once again the boxing terminology, but those teams like the tipsters must ...
