This isn’t mere hyperbole, this isn’t myth, this is a fact.

Mere hyperbole
IN the fashion world, the Greater Western Sydney strip is probably best described as “witches hats orange”. Yesterday, as North Melbourne brutally bashed the AFL newcomers, it was as if the ground was dotted with the little plastic cones.

This isn’t myth?
Bastinac who is heavily rumoured with links to GWS proved they have been correct in targeting him for a move up north in the offseason. In a dominating display against poor opposition he demonstrated his ability to be a player of the future. Watch the return of Jack Ziebell this round after serving out his carry-over suspension from last season. Ziebell is primed to have a break-out 2012

Myths around the reasons why two of the most talked about premium defenders have been producing such low dream team scores to start the season.

Greg Broughton – The reintroduction of Barlow and Mundy into the Fremantle midfield harmed Broughtons midfield prospects. Also with Ballantyne, Morabito and the likely inclusion of Neale into the midfield rotation in the next month expect Broughton to play a predominantly close lock down role on the medium forward of the opposing team. in the first two weeks he has restricted Stevie J (68) and ROK (16) to below par performances.

Heath Shaw – Our prediction is HOLD and wait for the return of the Pies Captain Nick Maxwell to strengthen up the pies defence and allow Heath Shaw to play a link role in defence. The return of Chris Tarrant in a few weeks may also free up Shaw to play higher on a wing.

This is a fact.
Round 2 of the 2012 AFL season brought many predictable results and culminated in one of the best games we are likely to see in a while with the Cats continuing to hold the edge over the Hawks, continuing their streak, now standing at 8 wins. The Hawks last victory coming in the 08′ Grand Final.

The weekend also produced some blistering performances from Premium players. Ablett continues to perform in a poor side racking up a round best 143 against the St. Kilda. Goddard (141), Deledio (140) and Watson (140) also produced rewarding those who looked past their lack of pre-season preparation or form to produce when it’s needed.

Judd proved he is more than a SuperCoach specialist picking up extra points rotating through the forward line in what looks like a fantastic move by the Blues giving their star player more rest up forward during the game.

And finally, Josh Kennedy continues to show his class and leaves others to ponder how the Hawks could let a player with his family ties to the club go so cheaply only a few years ago. Sydney again proving they are the best at finding treasure in others recycling.
