  1. Be Patient with Lever

    I actually thought he was good yesterday, gave away one of the worst frees I've ever seen paid on Goldstein, but was busy and got better as the game wore on. Granted, for two first rounders and 800k a year, his first three games as a collective have been totally underwhelming. But it's way too early for the vultures to come out. Just watch, Lever will be BOG in a final one day and Kane Cornes types will write how "it was great for Lever to show up those who doubted him." That's the media for you.
  2. Post Match Discussion - Round 3

    Just clocking in for the first time in a while to say that this will 100% be the most satisfying win of the H&A season. We beat North. The last of our dark day hoodoos is dead. Thank the heavens.
  3. Post Match Discussion: JLT #2 vs St. Kilda

    Ahead of him are Oliver, Gawn, Jones, Jetta, Lever, Viney, TMac, Hibberd for sure. Petracca would probably be next. Then you have Tyson, just ahead of Lewis and Garlett, in my opinion. Three top 10 B&F finishes in four seasons ain't bad.
  4. Post Match Discussion: JLT #2 vs St. Kilda

    One of the first things Roos said on the telecast yesterday was that Tyson has been 'outstanding' since joining from GWS. Sometimes you forget how good he has been. We got him as a sort of unknown, but when fit he's a regular at the pointy end of the B&F. Any talk of him not being best 22 is nonsense.
  5. Post Match Discussion: JLT #2 vs St. Kilda

    Brayshaw's game, after a pretty ordinary showing against North, was the highlight for mine. Oliver is just so slick, surely AA if he matches last year's output and stays injury free. Hogan is no longer the Messiah, just a very capable roaming tall. I didn't notice him a great deal but his stats on paper are very impressive. Lever is easily worth two midrange first round picks if his early form, coupled with his young age, is anything to go by. Stretch was busy but not overly effective, Wagner wasn't terrible but makes amateurish mistakes,and Maynard is a depth player at best. Also think Pedersen is on his last legs.
  6. Post Match Discussion: JLT #1 vs North Melbourne

    Not really because that kind of stuff is instinctive and happens in a fraction of a second.

    One super impressive thing about Fritsch's game was that he had the EASIEST of chances to put his head down and kick a 4th goal, and more-or-less make it impossible to leave him out of Round 1. But he still chose to dish it off. Goodwin would have loved that.
  8. Christian Petracca Re-Signs Until End of 2020

    Those quotes do bode well for his imminent signature. I know Scully said nearly exactly the same things in 2011, except for one difference. He had already put contract talks on hold til the end of the year (how did we not see it coming???). Petracca has indicated a contract will get done. Normally when players are on the way out, or considering leaving, they normally trot things out like 'I want to focus on my footy' and 'There's no hurry/timeframe.' No guarantees but I think Petracca will sign sooner rather than later.

    He's talking about Bugg. I understand his point, Bugg was a 'good luck charm' of sorts in 2017, but don't think it will be enough this season. Will get games when injuries hit.

    On a more serious note, it's hard to take much from a Mickey Mouse game of 'footy', but a few things stood out. a) Petracca made me nervous every time he changed direction or went air born, but his ability to keep his feet is outrageous. b) Melksham and TMac have a vortex like ability to split the middle of the big sticks. c) Bugg has a distinct lack of ability by foot and will struggle for games as such. d) Seeing a blonde #4 with tattoos and some mongrel was a refreshing change.

    I credit the cancelled training camp for our success.

    I don't think it's worth analysing anyone's performance, except for maybe TMac's contested marking.

    LOL, I knew there'd be one.

    I don't get the hate for this game. Most of us get zero chance to see them train over the summer so a glorified match simulation like this is better than nothing! We played a pretty boring team with no new faces. Hope we bring them out next game.

    Goodwin isn't coaching, Craig Jennings is. Sack Jennings! I know it's trendy to hate on it but I thought it was alright. I'll take anything on February 15th. Even these glorified training simulations. Looking forward to seeing what Spargo, Fritsch and Baker are like. Petracca better get gastro on Saturday morning.
