Perhaps most dramatic of all in the AFL this round, there was no off field booze fuelled antics to speak of. We’ll leave that up to the NRL this week. Enough said.
Yeah, the ‘Pies did it easy again, Freo overcame a wasteful North, Hawks were challenged but some questionable umpiring saved them from an embarrassing defeat against the Eagles.
Melbourne took in some glorious Brisbane sunshine to casually hammer the Suns by 90 points and in Sydney, Geelong’s ‘Dads Army’ proved they could easily be contenders again.

Looking back on the draw between the Bombers and the Blues, there were a million things that could of gone this way or that way but in the end, Kade Simpson’s great idea to put the ball out of bounds on the full with 39 seconds left, probably lost it for the ‘blue baggers’.
Finally, what do you say about Port? Absolute rubbish for three rounds then they get up to totally dismantle cross-town rivals Adelaide. Either they’ve got bipolar disorder or they really hate the Crows.
So, a massive feast of footy is upon us with games from Thursday through ‘til Tuesday.
The Bombers in their traditional Anzac Day clash may actually test Collingwood, (also in the dental hygiene stakes as 90,000 attend the match). The Dockers also host an Anzac Day match vs. the Bulldogs in what should be a ripper contest.
The Tigers and Kangaroos should be a clangerfest, Brisbane play the Saints with both desperately needing a win, Carlton will try to demoralize the crows further into despair, whilst Hawthorn and Geelong battle it out on Tuesday arvo, with cinemas around Melbourne bracing for the worst Tight Arse Tuesday ticket sales since records began.
Gold Coast kids get a field trip to Adelaide for a hit out against the Power, who will probably be still hung-over from the showdown victory, so possibly chalk up win one for the Suns.
