2. FIFTY METRES, MAYBE

Nothing like a 'rule of the week' to slap everyone in the footy world in the face nice and hard on the opening game of the weekend, and then see it watered down as the round progresses.
Even better when 'The League' come out and actually say "We were wrong".

Those custodians of the game, hey.


The Wash Up

No problems here at FMI Central in admitting 'we were wrong'... happens every week.
SIX. Not good considering a swathe of tipsters got 8 and even 9.

Lots of movement in the guts of the table, a bit like Flinders St station at rush hour.
Sydney extend their position on top and reach back into +1400 territory.
And good news at the bottom with the Queenslanders moving closer to the rest of the nation.
If only socially and politically too.



The Round Ahead:

Thursday to Monday. Easter footy has you covered every day for 5 straight days.

Collingwood lean hard on the home ground advantage to tun the result into an effective coin toss.
The faltering former Footscray are also relying on HGA to help.

Interesting to see how Melbourne bounce back, how serious a challenger Port Adelaide are, and Mondays game also is very important.

Good tipping to you all.
