Shinboner's spirit just sensational, says Pagan

Tuesday 2nd

Francou let off
The AFL tribunal has cleared Port Adelaide’s Josh Francou of a striking charge arising from Saturday’s loss to the Kangaroos

The marathon has begun
The sobering news for exultant Saints and Demons fans is that opening round triumphs don't always translate into busy Septembers. And with three of the last four premiers having been beaten in the opening round, fans of Hawthorn and Port Adelaide still have much to look forward to.

Wednesday 3rd

Francou free to face Demons
Port Adelaide midfielder Josh Francou will play against Melbourne this weekend after the AFL Tribunal judged his vigorous shove of Kangaroo Adam Simpson was not a strike.

Port's MCG mystery
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams struggles to remember the times his side has played at the MCG. So it’s little wonder that the Power are treating Sunday’s game against Melbourne at the MCG as a bit of a novelty. It will only be Power’s third match at the ground in three years.
Also see Port looks forward to rare MCG appearance.

Port wants to boost MCG record
The most obvious challenge facing Port Adelaide on Sunday – statistically at least – is to improve its poor record at the MCG by beating Melbourne there for the first time.

Power change big man set-up
Port Adelaide has changed its three-ruckman system for Sunday’s match against Melbourne at the MCG, opting to leave Barnaby French out of the side, in favour of centre half back Darren Mead.

Saturday 6th

Eight more Magpies added to elite list
Tin Ginever hosted the Magpies Hall of Fame Dinner last night and announced seven new inductees. Scott Hodges, Tim Evans, Greg Phillips, Brian Cunningham, Craig Bradley, former team manager 'Brick' Hoffman and doctor Henry Kneebone were added to the elite list. The best kept secret leading up to the night was that Tim Ginever himself was also to be inducted. More than four hundred supporters turned out for the event at the Hilton International.

Port to hit us hard

Sunday 7th

Port lose to resurgent Dees
Port Adelaide fell to a resurgent Melbourne by 27 points at the MCG today after the Demons controlled the first half before the Power rallied in the third term only to be overrun in the final term.

Port not pushing the panic buttons
After a magnificent pre-season that saw Port Adelaide claim the Wizard Home Loans Cup, the Power has surprisingly lost it opening two matches - to the Kangaroos at home and Melbourne at the MCG.

Demons off to flyer
Melbourne has completed its best start to an AFL season in eight years, defeating Port Adelaide by 27 points at the MCG.

The problem with Port

Poor start a 'wake-up call': Primus
Port Adelaide’s shock 0-2 opening to the premiership season, after a rousing 5-0 march through the Wizard Home Loans Cup campaign, was “a great wake-up call”, according to Matthew Primus, the Power’s captain.

On-field flood, off-field famine
Port Adelaide failed to turn up in anything except name. It started poorly, ground its way into the lead, then gave it up with scarcely a squawk.

New Demons not just a number game
Those inclined towards the superstitious will tell you there is a simple reason that Melbourne is on the up in 2002: it's an even numbered year, like 1998 and 2000, and they had a shocker of a season last year, as they did in '97 and '99.

Demons day in the sun

Williams says Port not as good as made out to be
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams yesterday conceded his team was not as good as it thought it was as the Power continued its winless start to the season with a 27-point loss to Melbourne at the MCG.

Tuesday 9th

A special moment in a week of tears
After four year old Caitlin Todd's Hillcrest home was destroyed by fire earlier this week, her biggest concern was the loss of her cherished Power gear and items of her hero, Gavin Wanganeen. So when Gavin himself made a personal visit, armed with a bag full of Power gear, she could hardly believe her eyes.

Injury woes for Saints
St Kilda’s injury woes have continued with news that Fraser Gehrig is suffering from the dreaded osteitis pubis and skipper Robert Harvey is unlikely to play against Port this week due to a calf injury.
Also see Harvey 50-50 chance to play.

Port Adelaide has not altered its game plan, according to Josh Francou and Stuart Dew, who signed new, extended contracts with the club today.

A disappointing St. Kilda struck Port Adelaide on the day the Wizard Cup winners finally rediscovered their pre-season form – with the Saints outclassed to the tune of 83 points at Colonial Stadium.

Mead preparing next lot of defenders
Veteran Port Adelaide defender Darren Mead has turned his focus to developing the Power's next generation of defenders as he nears the end of his AFL career.

We're more focused: Mead
Port Adelaide’s 4-3 win-loss record against Carlton includes 3-2 at Football Park, but it’s the 34-point loss to the Blues there in round 12 last season that probably still irks Darren Mead the most.

Lance to stay down back  
Carlton star Lance Whitnall is likely to again line-up in defence this Sunday against Port Adelaide at Football Park, after his solid performance at centre half-back in last Friday night’s victory over Collingwood.

Late goals rescue Port  

Port come from behind to win battle of the south

Port's Showdown
Port Adelaide has staged a stunning comeback to overrun cross-city rival Adelaide by 8-points at Football Park. The Power had trailed for the entire night until Peter Burgoyne kicked two late goals and propelled his side to another win over the Crows, 14.6 (90) to 12.10 (82).

Primus Sunday Mail article
Matthew Primus writes a column in the Sunday Mail every week so I thought I'd give those of you who live interstate and overseas a run down on what he had to say about last night's win.

Matty said "What a great win! One of our best we've ever had. We were in big trouble in the third quarter and the boys dug deep and recorded one of our best ever wins."

He was impressed with the efforts of Barny, Kingsley and Schofield in the second half. He also wrote about the team lifting and that there were some superb individual efforts, especially in the final ten minutes, not so much with the ball, but through hardness and tackling. 

Matty was disappointed to miss the game, but it was his call and after a light run in the morning he felt the knee was a bit too sore and that it would be wrong to play with the risk of causing further damage. He stewed about the decision all afternoon but decided to do what's best for the team.

He sat in the coaches box for the match and he said the heat was really on in there. He said he was on the edge of his seat the whole time.

The focus is now on West Coast who will be stiff opposition after their win against Brisbane yesterday. Matty said "If we could be 4-2 after six rounds it would be a satisfactory start to the season, especially after dropping our first two games. After the week's rest I fully expect to play."
