    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    More confident today than next week. We are already playing finals. Each of these games would be like 4-5 games experience each for our young guns. If we don't win it confirms we are not ready but have learnt lots and I don't want to be there to make up the numbers. If we do I reckon watch the monkey come off the back and see us play freewheeling Dee's footy in September. Much better team balance this week. Need to stop their rebound from half back, take our chances and we're a serious shake.

    In Game Influencers

    How many do other sides have? I would be surprised if you named more than 4 for most including the premier. The problem is one of our isn’t there yet and one of ours is constantly off the park with a foot. I would argue in game Brayshaw can influence more than Gawn. Gawn is usually on or off and not usually the difference between shifting momentum.

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    We are mentally weak. Too many players go missing when the game gets tough. Unless Goodwin is kicking it for them can’t see how he’s to blame. Jones last quarter proves there is no excuse why he was weak as [censored] jogging between contests for the first three. Reset next week and hopefully someone stands up and decides to take the game by the scruff of the neck.

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    We lack any mental strength, composure with ball or want to spread defensively.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 21

    The player that has played him best was Hurley who bodied him at the contest then pushed off him at every opportunity. There was no double team or drop off.

    Red Card Rule

    I understand the intent and sentiment but we are assuming someone will know the line between when a red card is absolutely correct and when it is not a red card incident. I was watching On The Couch tonight where they said a hit like that will cost a fina one day. My view would be there is more chance an incorrectly awarded red card would. If the AFL cant get it right whether a ball hits a post or not we now want them to absolutely decide whether someone should be sent off. How will they decide it? What needs to be sure? What is the basis? How quickly from the incident must it occur? Do we need to wait to see whether a player passes the concussion before the hit is considered red carded? Is the Cameron one red cardable even though it was in the contest? How can you be sure on intent. I like the idea but too many variables and a governing body that are not great at getting the grey things right. Leave the game alone.

    I like this idea.

    Changes vs Sydney

    According to Goodwin no Viney or Hibberd and Melksham 50/50 for next week. Swans are not tall forward so Smith in allows us to decide the best defender rather than needing a third tall specifically. I would be pulling the trigger on Hunt. If Melksham needs another week leave it as one change. Out Smith. In Hunt.

    should have read this before I wasted my time with the Burgan interview. Did not even say his height or what type of footy player he was.

    Changes v Gold Coast Suns

    I am one that believes to make changes you need someone coming in who will on talent or form be better than the one going out for that role. That or you are changing the mix of roles in the side for a refined strategy. I think strategically we are now set for the year. Casey do not play this week. None of our first 18 in Viney or Hibberd are ready to return. For me then it is clearly no change unless a key player such as Hogan or kid (Fritsch or Spargo) needs a serious rest to freshen them up.

    It could also be that our starting midfield is made up of 50 game players who maybe cant quite keep it up yet all game against more mature mids.

    FFS enjoy it. They are a good side. We played hard tough footy in the first half but lacked polish. We then dominated in a hostile environment and held them out in the last.
