R19: Crocs v United
Tonight, the Crocs host United in what could only be described as a Valentines Day Massacre. Oh, you need a heart on Valentines Day, and Melbourne will need to find their's tonight or else implode on the court. The Crocs won't be giving them flowers and chocolates tonight, they'll be giving them hot curry from the bounce. Expect weeds and mud cakes in the locker room.
Melbourne have lost their last 3 and could possible go 0-7 to bookend a season they might joke about in 10 years time, but lament in the present. Townsville have an opportunity to jump them on the ladder if they rally the troops and go hard in their final 3 games. They need to win this one, and then get the "gong at home in what should be their GF. Melbourne could slump to 7th if they lose their 2 games to Sydney and that looks as likely as an election loss for Tony Abbott.
The oomph has gone from United. Who will offer some mouth to mouth on the day of love? Will they just be flaccid and unable to deliver? Someone needs to get them fired up, or else the Crocs will rip them apart in a death roll on their way to reaching the ton.
Crocs all the way tonight. Give the DP players a run and bring in extra mops for the blood. Crocs by 20 in the Valentines Day Massacre.
