Hi people. It's me here, a proud Footscray fan. :howler: Round 1 started, so let's start too!! Had a ticket to the game last night but missed it due to work. Way to start the season though! Stringer with 3 and the rest including Tom Boyd kicked one. Its been years and years since we had a FF, hopefully that goal last night by Boyd is just the first of atleast 60 this season. :howler:

Nice start by the Dogs, I hope you can have a solid season.

Some unexpected results yesterday already, 3 underdogs from 4 winning, and the 4th could have won too in Bombers.

Not sure why the Pies started such long odds though. :undecide:

Were you at the MCG yesterday? Great start to the season.

Anyway, even early this season, it's looking hard to go past the Hawks once more. Only teams I can maybe see challenging them - Sydney, Fremantle, and as an outside bet, Adelaide impressed me a lot in their win against North Melbourne. Of course it's early still.

I think Fremantle will beat Geelong convincingly today, despite the game being played in Geelong.

It's looking like a horrible decision on GC's part to sack McKenna.

And at the moment, Carlton will struggle to win a game this season. :palm:

Nah had work again. I wouldnt go MCG anyway, hate it there. I think I only went there twice since high school days lol. Aussie v Greece WC warm up match was probably the last time I been to the G. But yeah great start, 2 from 2. Now we got the Hawks. If we dont screw up vs GWS, Saints and Melbourne (we play all 3 twice) we could have a real good shot at September footy.

Actually thinking of it now, I went to the G a fair bit in the past few years, just not to a Doggies game. We hardly play there anyway. Went to a few Bombers and Carlton games. I think it was the same season when they drew and then Carlton won by 10 goals or so and Betts had 5 or 6 goals and Walker took that mark of the year in the final quarter. Damn man, I had every tip that game, Betts to kick first goal (I think) Blues by 60plus and Betts most goals. But didnt place any of the bets. :howler:

After beating all top 8 candidates id be spewing if we can't beat St Kilda, Melbourne and GWS. We have Freo in Melbourne in between. So maybe 3 wins in our next 4?

I wouldn't be surprised if you dropped one of those matches you expect a win from, say against Melbourne who have looked spirited at times this season. While the Bulldogs have been excellent this season, you've still got a young list and I doubt you can maintain this consistency week in week out so there's bound to be a dip eventually and any of these teams can take advantage of that.

A mate was saying the same thing on Saturday night. We still need to atleast win 2 of the next 4 though. We should be able to beat St Kilda but was surprised they managed to be in it the whole game yesterday.
