And that's when it's best left in the pocket.

WC vs Sydney
Essendon vs Freo
Adelaide vs Richmond
Hawthorn vs Geelong

And even St Kilda vs GC could surprise.

No one is home and hosed this early in the year.

Could Port do the unthinkable also?

I think Port are a massive show.

Getting Aliir back is a big in.

Carlton were awful at the stoppages last week when Cripps went off. Admittedly though this appears to be a strength of GC with Witts in the ruck and both Rowell and Miller who are just physical beasts which I don't think Port really have.

It's the type of game you want coming off their start to the year. On the road, everyone together bonding, us against them etc. If I were tipping or betting, i'd be loading up on Port to do a number on them.

And we have lost our carby!

I'll be optimistic, hopeful and supportive but I don't have a great deal of confidence. Sad part is that I'll be at a family lunch with my Port hating brother in law who know doubt be up and about if we're getting drubbed, fortunately or unfortunately the Crows would've already played.

You're not a real gambler unless you've placed a bet on the 3rd in Turffontein on a random Wednesday morning.
