18. SIX AND OUT

Is good to see a lot of people reacting the right way this week. And the light shone is highlighting those divisive and backward people in the broader football community.
We know now who they all are. And you know what weight to apply to their opinion.

More importantly, lets hope the light that shone, that highlighted these bigots, burns brightly and remains that way. Searingly so, such that they are forever marked, branded. Australia's fools who offer up 'opinion' not to enlighten, but to line their own pockets.

Not a good weekend for close games, with an expected average six goal margin across eight of this weeks round.
With that sort of expected margin, there is little point looking at the form indicator to detect upsets, with the possible exception of St Kilda at Port Adelaide.

Good tipping, folks.
