Midweek there was no inclination about what was to unfold across this weekend. Sure, the weather reports were telling us it’d be the coldest day of the year but no one warned us it would affect so many players this weekend.

Did you know it was Earth Hour, the hour where we’re to switch off all the lights in our house to symbolically show we care for our planet, on Saturday night? No? Me either. My team North Melbourne seemed to know it was though, they were so into it they didn’t even switch on. What a disaster that was.
Round one reminds me of what a cruel mistress fantasy footy is for those of us who take it more seriously than we should. How good is it to be back!
