Game Chat – Adelaide v West Coast

Written by Thommo on August 30 2015

Everybody loves the Doggies as their unofficial “second team”, but surely we all have a soft spot for Adelaide after the year they’ve had? And with a finals berth on the line, haven’t they responded magnificently with impressive wins against Brisbane, Richmond and Essendon in the last 3 weeks. With Geelong’s loss on Friday night, the Crows have officially reached the final 8 for the first time since 2012.

Whether they’ve sealed a finals spot or not, Adelaide will want to maintain their momentum and push for a home final. But even playing at home, defeating West Coast will be no easy task with the Eagles coming off a massive win over the Bulldogs are home. No matter how many defenders the Eagles lose, they just keep winning and are arguable deserving of outright favouritism for the flag.

Can the Eagles maintain the rage on the road or will Adelaide’s fairy tale run continue?

Kudos to Mark Lecras on game 150.

Thommo’s tip: Adelaide by 20 points.

  2. G’day everyone!! Good luck for today.

    Would appreciate some last minute advice.

    If I take Goldys VC score of 102 (which is my opponents captain score), my GF match up is:

    Him – 109 points + Jacobs (126) + McDonald (95) = 330 points
    Me – B. Smith (83) + Nic Nat (123) + Priddis (114) + Newnes (104) = 424 points

    As I think some of my player projections are a bit high, my dilemma is given the current state of play in my GF, do I captain Dangerfield who my opponent also has (or should I just take Goldys 102)?

    The other option is to leave the captaincy until the last game. By then I should have a much clearer idea about the outcome of our GF, but I would have to captain L Neale if I need a big captain score. My opponent also has Neale.

    Thanks.

  5. Starting to regret banking Malceski’s 108 over Brodie Smith… Hope I didn’t just throw the final with that move.
