Well it is here, at long last.after all the months of make believe footy games, we now have the biggest game of the year.The Grand final.
We have had a season of ups and downs from a few sides.Some sides more downs than up.
Some sides were expected to be up, like Melbourne but failed badly.Will they be a side that promises so much again.Like this year.Get a favourable draw next year to soar up the ladder, then fall down again if they make the finals.To me they were the disappointment of the season.
From Melbourne to the Lions.They have been the team that were sort of going to be a threat than the team to beat /But come seasons end, they were the big improvers over all.Their form from the previous year, where they lost a lot of players ......

Well cricket over... for the time being anyway.Circus play starts this weekend I think.But Ashes returned after a 2/2 drawn series.Not much more to say.
MMMMM where to from here.Always gets harder this time of the year to write stuff.O/S cricket finishing,generally and footy finals have arrived.Not as many games to chat about.
But Basketball was on I opened up about lat week.As I said then not a real fan of the game, but the Aussies were up and running back then.But sadly they came to a screeching halt come finals.Beaten by the Spaniards, I think it was, to force them into play off for the bronze medal with France.Again the wheels fell off.Some say biased refereeing.Some say they choked at crucial times.I am no expert so will leave it to ......

A week that started slowly, but boy oh boy, did it liven up later.The news just kept coming.
Sadly the week opened with the passing of Saint Kilda great Danny Frawley. What a shame these things happen.The Black Dog is a silent killer and realistically no one is safe from it.I am sure that there would not be a bad word to be said about the jovial joker.R.I.P Spud.
Then along came the resignation of Don Pyke from the Crows. He has fallen on his own sword and was not prepared to see the Crows go through another season of non assurance. I guess he knew that the end was closing in and didn't want it to happen mid season if the season began badly.
Already Ross Lyons name has been bandies about as a replacement for Pyke.Only time will tell ......

The cricket last night was a bit of a bummer with the weather washing out most of the day.Smith and Labuschagne lifted Australia out of the mire after failures by Warner and Harris.Warner must be on borrowed time right now.Only one decent score to date.Gone are the swash buckling devil may care innings we became accustomed to prior to the ban.
I think the Aussies have found a good one in Labuschagne .He looks the part. Unflustered by anything.And Smith, well he is Steve Smith.
But football is back tonight ,after a weekend off.After two really great rounds before H&A end, it surprised me that the AFL would do it.But I guess it is their competition.
Thursday.First elimination final.
The Eagles take on the Bombers in the first ......
