The BOM has updated for Thursday.

It's gone from 2-8mm to 1-4mm.

20 degrees at lunchtime. 14 at the first bounce.

The iphone weather app (yeah I know LOL!) is saying that all the rain will occur from 7pm to 10pm.

I actually find the iPhone app to be weirdly accurate... but only 24 hours out. Any earlier and it's basically a random guess like any other weather app out there.

Every chance the showers won't start until the end of the game or even later. Friday is now meant to be the worst rain of the week.

Updated my BOM app for android and the weather seemed to change with it. No hail in the evening now.

LOL shows you how accurate it is.

I would not bother checking until tomorrow after lunch, and even then it'll change 10 more times.

My guess; it will either rain, or it won't.

Tmac in the wet. Strewth

Maybe they'll go with  Spargo or JJ.

No other change.  

 

While i wouldn't expect Macca or any KPFs to kick a bag in wet or greasy conditions i reckon we already have too many dour types that don't worry the scorer DB.

Spargo & JJ are just two more that rarely do.  Both also struggle with distance in the dry let alone poor conditions.

We need to put a winning score on the board even in dodgy conditions.

Macca will also most likely get Moore as well which may free up JVR a little.

I expect we might put someone on Moore to drag him around.

Not sure if Tmac still has that tank.. Fritta likes covering territory.

I'm not a KISS fan, and agree it is crazy not to book Aaussie bands, but there is one big difference to meatloaf. 

Meatloaf was very much a has been and decades past being a top seller.

I heard Gerard Whately say something similar ie kids won't know who KISS are. But in fact he was just showing out of touch he is. 

KISS remain huge and continue to find new, young audiences all over the world. They are huge with kids now.

People don't but CDs much anymore, but KISS are making a fortune from streaming.

On spotify they get over 13 million monthly listeners and their most streamed song is I was made for loving you with over 800 million streams. 

Those numbers aren't all old foggies reliving their misspent youth. Millions of kids love them.

For the same reason they continue to rake in serious coin with touring . Their last major tour was i think 2019. KISS were the only hard rock act in the top 10 grossing tours in the US that year, coming in at number 7, grossing more that $80 mill US

2019 Top 10 North American Tours

1. The Rolling Stones ($177.8M gross; 784,652 tickets sold)
2. Elton John ($157.4M gross; 1,155,510 tickets sold)
3. Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band ($97.0M gross;, 867,925 tickets sold)
4. Pink ($87.9M gross; 624,419 tickets sold)
5. Ariana Grande ($82.6M gross; 700,053 tickets sold)
6. Jonas Brothers ($81.7M gross; 769,310 tickets sold)
7. KISS ($81.6 M gross; 800,302 tickets sold)
8. Fleetwood Mac ($77.5M gross; 544,286 tickets sold)
9. Garth Brooks ($76.1M gross; 856,000 tickets sold)
10. Justin Timberlake ($75.6M gross; 568,449 tickets sold)

On top of all of that they continue to make millions annually from merchandise (having more than a billion dollars in merch sales over their career).

They aint no meatloaf.

Right? There’s only so much emotional territory Mike Brady can cover.

We could just have some peace and quiet

There's far too much / quite enough noise already

guess you won't be going then?

Actually I have a place ready to go in the 50 years member section.

The point is that calling it by stats is why David King gets it wrong so often.

I'm intuiting from what I've seen watching live as well as on Kayo 

Both teams..the advantage of MCC membership. 

I may be completely wrong of course

Perhaps, but my other intuition is that they were short DeGoey and several others( yeah Daicos I know) and two theoretically equal sides tend to trade victories.

I know Pies fans who are nervous about this game .

Hopefully it is good entertainment

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
