7. Crow-value

Adelaide and Port Adelaide spent a fair bit of the pre-season 'talking-up' how great it was to be playing at their new home, The Adelaide Oval.
The Crows in particular were bragging hardest, dubbing the venue 'The Adelaide Crowval'.

After 6 rounds, here are the results to date:
Port Adelaide: 
Wins: 3    Losses: 0
Percentage:  211.8%  (Avge For: 131 points - Avg Agst: 62)
Port Adelaide 19 14 128 Adelaide 11 7 73
Port Adelaide 24 15 159 Brisbane Lions 7 4 46
Port Adelaide 16 11 107 Geelong 9 13 67
Not a bad record for the towns 'little brother' team.

Adelaide   (as hosts):
Wins: 1    Losses: 2
Percentage:  99.6%  (Avge For: 91.7 points - Avg Agst: 92)
Adelaide 9 17 71 SMFC/Sydney 21 8 134
Adelaide 21 11 137 GWS 10 12 72
Adelaide 9 13 67 Melbourne 11 4 70

Adding in the Port Adelaide home game, the Crows record at the self-appointed 'Crowval' is less than impressive.
Adelaide   (all games):
Wins: 1    Losses: 3
Percentage:  86.1%  (Avge For: 87 points - Avg Agst: 101)

Suggestion - dont crow too loudly, too soon.


THE RESULTS:
Another steady tipping week with 7 from 9 the return.



A few of the above games were tipped inside a 2 goal window, but there were a few where we were 5 goals or more off the correct margin.

Only a few changes at the foot of the table, with the Suns rising up to 13th. Brisbane and St Kilda sliding down.

Hawthorn breach 1500 points again, doing so fir the first time since Round 8, 2013 (after defeating GWS).

Melbourne are ranked at their highest rating level since round 17, 2013 (for 1 week) and before that round 7, 2013.

The Gold Coast Suns are at their highest ranking level (951 points, and almost back to starting position of 1000), as too are the Giants at 567 points.
