The Crows are at the top end of the ladder after a visit to the Top End, but we’re all starting to get that familiar pre-break-up feeling again. But never fear. Our Fumbles correspondent is taking matters into his own hands, and he’s making Lever and McGovern an offer they can’t refuse.
Despite fluctuating form, the Crows are somehow back on top of the ladder and widely expected to stay thereabouts by season’s end. Which, for some reason, has our Fumbles correspondent preoccupied with casual vandalism, late-night tequila binges and trawling through canine faeces, as the ghost of his least favourite season ever returns to haunt him.
As ever in football, it looks good on paper: Adelaide found a way to win, while Port found a way to lose. But it’s neither a win, nor a loss – but a draw – that has our Fumbles correspondent fretting as the Crows enter a tough run home.
Is this the way the premiership dream ends; not with a bang but a whimper?
