    After Gibbs our midfield looks very weak right now without Sloane and x2 Crouch.

    Bit bemused with Otten's selection given Pyke admitted we went in too tall last week so he proceeds to drop Fogarty for someone with less speed/defensive pressure in Otten. Maybe the plan is to play him in the backline as I believe he's been doing in the SANFL but it's a strange swap.

    I think we've actually been pretty decent. We were terrible for a half against Port and didn't put any scoreboard pressure on them while we were dominating them in the first half, we got lucky that GWS kicked horrifically and took the win and the win last week was a pretty solid effort as was the win over the Eagles, no real read on either of those sides yet as to whether they're as good as their good play or as bad as their bad play but both are pretty solid sides to beat on the road still.

    Not that we're playing well or anything but we're not playing as badly as we did at the start of last year at least.

    Do agree it will be closer though, Adelaide play and matchup well with us, their big forward line negates our "strategy" of allowing teams to repeat bomb F50 entries until we find a gap to rebound through because they've got genuine marking targets who pluck it in packs and stop us bringing to ground.

    Still, if the Swans midfield can't dominate this week they never will and that should decide it. Be interesting to see if Jacobs shows up this week or has another absolute mare.

    You've been fine, but could easily be 1-3 if hadn't been so accurate/ opponent been inaccurate. Been out shot 3/4 games.
    Hasnt been the easiest draw I guess.

    Also think the Adelaide bashing is a bit weird from other places too, they are undermanned but besides last week they've played pretty well imo.

    Media does love to sink the boot into Tex.

    Another week, another Adelaide injury. This time, however, it's Mackay out for a month, so I imagine everyone will be pretty happy about that.

    Nothing personal but I ront think he'll be missed, at least with what he does on the field.

    Hopefully we never see him again. No coincidence we played a lot better as soon as he got injured last week.

    Finally the injury that Crows fans have been praying for...

    Surely this is the mercy kill for him, puts his claim for worst player to play 200 games in serious jeopardy as well.

    I'm so nervous that we're going to announce a re-signing during his 4 week absence.

    I know she's a very polarising person but Caro has written an article about Adelaide's season, giving more information (especially for those not in SA where I'm sure it's talked about more) about the camp, the fallout, etc.

    All for the media pressure on the club as they've handled this as poorly as possible and continue to try and make sure no one is held accountable.

    I feel for Tex as he's the only one from the club fronting up to the media and he's copping it from every direction with no support whatsoever.
