Into the 4th day of football this weekend and it’s still not enough I’m being greedy yes but it’s weekends like this I wish there was 24 teams in the AFL so we could have 2-3 games a day.
Saint Kilda v Collingwood
A very interesting game today Saints started as favourites but now the Pies have been backed into favouritism, Botha sides started the season with 2 losses and then a win but both could of easily won at least another game had things gone right. For the Saints to win they need big games from veterans Riewoldt and Montagna to continue their great form but will need some help in front of goal as is has been deplorable all season. Collingwood have not been much better in front of goal but with the return of Elliot up forward the Pies will be hoping he will help straighten them up, they can not kick a winning score if they keep going to the pockets. The game will be close early but expect the Pies to grind out another win late in the game with the extra depth they have in the mid field.
Predict Pies win 19 points

Richmond v Brisbane
The Tiger train is rolling along nicely and have had the wood over the Lion winning the last 5 games by an average of about 40 points. The Lions are showing a lot more heart this season so far and would give themselves a chance today at home, Beams is reminding us all how good a player he is and last years injury is well in the past. The battle between him and Martin in the middle will be worth the admission price alone both run hard can kick freakish goals and just continue to rack up possessions. The Tigers have been very good at keeping teams to low scores and have not allowed over 90 points in a game yet, while the Lions are letting in over 100 points on average. This is where the game will be won the tigers will be too tough to penetrate and will too good through the middle and up forward.
Predict Tigers win 39 points
