I'm starting this thread because my favourite sport ever devised Australian Rules Football's biggest and best leage the AFL is starting it's pre-season competition this week. Even though I'm 99% certain that none of you will care about this thread in the slightest, I wouldn't mind a place where i can talk about something I'm extremely passionate about. That being said this thread is going to feature one word on a very frequent basis. That word is COLLINGWOOD. look them up. They = Greatness!

They want to take the game elsewhere as well, but other countries haven't seen enough of it yet. They had a world cup for any country other than Australia, but it will take time to expand elsewhere.

So skimming through those videos, the Collingwood theme is quite possibly the GAYEST sporting song i've ever heard!! :D Seems to be heavily inspired by rugby league? Obvious element from proper football, a hint of basketball with the bouncing and whatnot. What's with all the goalposts and the oval field? Is it like fucking quidditch?! :D

I'm only messing with you chief! :p Definitely looks like a proper rough and tumble game, is this only played in Australia then?

Mostly. Some other countries have started playing it and its slowly expanding it's reach but Australia is always going to be more dominate at it. There was a world cup for every country other than Australia last year. It went pretty well so they are going to continue to grow the game elsewhere.

The first 3 teams have completed their first games in a round robin first week of preseason competition with:
North Melbourne Kangaroos defeated Richmond Tigers
Hawthorn Hawks defeated North Melbourne
and Richmond defeated Hawthorn in the first night of footy for 2012.
Great results tonight with each team scoring a win!

B-MCINTYRE
02-17-2012, 06:29 AM
Tomorrow night three teams will play their round robin games:
The game marks the official debut of the Western Sydney Giants into AFL competition with them joining the league this season. THey have two tough opponents tonight in the Western Bulldogs and the Collingwood Magpies.
GWS will first play the Western Bulldogs in what will be a great display of how the giants will fare in the league this season.
Next up will be probably the pick of the three matches with Collingwood taking on the Bulldogs.
The next contest between GWS and the Magpies will likely be a one-sided affair that will most likely see last years grand final runner ups Collingwood show the fledgling GWS side how much improvement they will need to make it to the the higher end of the ladder.
Expect Collingwood to win it's two games and the Bulldogs to pick up the win in their match with GWS. But IN AFL as in the WWE anything can happen!

He has laughed at sporting disasters (Hillsborough disaster) and has biased tattoo'd on his forehead.

He hates ANYTHING English. For example: This post (Even though Italian football puts everyone to sleep and I remember beating Spain last time when played them :))

You're probably asking why does he do this?

Well, that's simple pal.

He is a troll, who has nothing better to do with his time.

Western Bulldogs 35 defeated GWS 30

B-MCINTYRE

Collingwood 26 bulldogs 19

02-18-2012, 06:49 AM
GWS came out strong against Collingwood and took the early lead. Collingwood showed their class and fought back to have the lead.
GWS kept coming and in the end just fell short against one of the best teams in the league. But still a tight match that came down to the wire!
Collingwood 35 defeated GWS 32!

B-MCINTYRE
02-18-2012, 06:51 AM
Just a note on the first match. GWS's first goal was kicked by a young player named Curtly Hampton who comes from Alice Springs where i grew up. I've played against him on numerous occasions and it was good to see him do so well!

St kilda got smashed. After the siren they got a consolation goal, but still a disappointing start for them under their new coa
The Sydney swans 59 defeated St Kilda 29

It's halftime in the second game of tonight between Sydney and the reigning premiers Geelong. It's tight and the current score is 12 all.
After this game tonight's action will finish with Geelong v St kilda. Expect a BIG geelong win there!

B-MCINTYRE
02-24-2012, 05:38 AM
Geelong ran out in the second half of their game against sydney and won by 16 points. i forget what the actual score was but it was definitely a 16 point win.

IN the last game. I could not have guessed more wrong. St kilda have come out and without the useless dud they have as a captain holding them back in this game have opened up a sizable lead early in the second half it is 27 - 4 St Kilda's way.

B-MCINTYRE
02-24-2012, 05:53 AM

GCS 26 defeated Melbourne 23

Melbourne Trailed Brisbane the whole game until there was 2 minutes left. They kicked a goal to go up 13 - 9 . The ball went to Brisbanes forward line and with less then ten seconds left a Melbourne player fumbled and lost the ball and from 15 metres out Brisbane had five seconds but rushed a shot at goal and missed for a behind making the score 13-10. Then the siren went.

Melbourne had no right to win, but Brisbane were awful in the last 3 minutes.

There's some trial rules that make for interesting things during preseason. So it's always worth a look at it.

In all honesty we've been pretty decent in most pre-season matches. I'm hoping it continues once the real format starts.

In all honesty we've been pretty decent in most pre-season matches. I'm hoping it continues once the real format starts.

It's always a good thing.. momentum.. And Freo will be a lot more serious this year under the new coach they headhunted and got. They should show a big improvement on last year..


BTW.. about that little prediction contest between us. If you are interested. I was thinking to make it fairer I would have two different lots of predictions and average those two's results at the end. One lot picked each week like normal. And one lot picked in advance before the season even starts picking the winner for each game. Since you won't get as much information as I would about what's happening around the sport.

I'm thinking top 8 is a fair possibility. Easily higher than last year is a minimum for us.

Nah man. If you do the prediction contest for this then don't it normally. If I mess up just lemme know and I'll correct what is easy pal :)

A top 8 finish is more impressive now that 10 teams miss finals.
Oh if you pick the team in last to win over the team leading the comp, I'll let you know...

As an example of how to pick a round basically this:


Round 1
Saturday, March 24
GWS GIANTS vs. Sydney Swans (ANZ) (N) Margin: 96 points ( I.E. I'm picking Sydney to win by 96 points in the first game of the week.)
Thursday, March 29
Richmond vs. Carlton (MCG) (N)
Friday, March 30
Hawthorn vs. Collingwood (MCG) (N)
Saturday, March 31
Melbourne vs. Brisbane Lions (MCG)
Gold Coast SUNS vs. Adelaide Crows (MS) (T)
Fremantle vs. Geelong Cats (PS) (N)
North Melbourne vs. Essendon (ES) (N)
Sunday, April 1
Western Bulldogs vs. West Coast Eagles (ES) (E)
Port Adelaide vs. St Kilda (AS) (T)

Bolded winners and what you think the margin will be. Not the score just the margin.. We can do that for more then one game if you want but It is easier with just the first game and will still end up solving a tie.

Ya,it would definately appeal to the rugby nations more than American football,due to the faster tempo and shorter time-frame it takes to finish a game,although having said that,England,New Zealand and South Africa also play cricket which after 5 days can end in a draw.

Only two players have gone from Rugby league to AFL. And it's a big transition. One of them will end up back in League or union but the other is doing pretty well for himself.

I remember back in the day (mid-90's) when there was a sports program that offered weekly highlights of the AFL. Looks like a funny and curious sport. I didn't know shit about rivalries or whatever, so I chose my fav 2, from those highlights: Essendon Bombers (cool outfit) and Geelong Cats (name sounded good) They are the only two teams I can mention without Google.

Geelong have won three premierships in the last I've years so. They are a good pick. It's usually a lot more exciting then other forms of football.

Sorry about missing the next round cause of my hols pal.

You write up the next fixtures and I'll own once again ;D lol

Freo doing pretty well. I can't honestly complain since we could be doing a hell of a lot worse. I need a few more fixtures behind me to really say this but I honestly think we could finish in a pretty good position this year :)

Pavlich gets 500 career goals. A first for Freo.

Plus a good win over the Ports.

Happy days.
