    Pace Or Grunt

    Geelong have a good mid field, but they aren't quick. Tyson isn't a clearance machine, but he can find the footy which will be important against the Geelong engine room. I'm torn, I don't think Hannan did enough to keep his spot, but Tyson just hasn't performed thus season.

    Brent Harvey says we'll lose Jesse Hogan

    If he keeps this B.S up he will just become a miniature version of Caroline Wilson.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    Geelong game is worth 8 points to us in the run home. It's gives us 4 and takes 4 away from Geelong who should be going in as slight favourites gown at Geelong. Beating them is so important to our finals chances.

    Changes vs Geelong

    Geelong are not an overly quick team. We might need another inside mid to help mitigate the selwood/ablett/Dangerfield types around stoppages. (We will miss Viney against this mob) Hannan would be my out, but not sure if there is a guaranteed in that should be selected. Dom Tyson is an option but his season hasn't been one for the highlights reel so far.

    Last chance for Kennedy-Harris?

    His tackling and hands in close were good. He needs to hold his marks, and work on his contested work in the air. He was solid enough and deserves a second game. I'm really happy for him, earned a recall and didn't let the opportunity pass him by.

    Losing Jack Viney

    It doesn't matter who we bring in, we won't get anything near like for like for Jack. This just sucks, a massive blow. Tyson is logical, maybe Vandenberg might be an option in a few weeks when he builds form. Whoever it is won't be close to Jack.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    I'm actually genuinely excited, given this is the first match I have been able to attend all season. Attending with a doggies fan so I hope it's me who get to gloate on the long ride home and not him. Carn the Dees!

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    Jeez Dom Tyson must be in the doghouse. He is now behind JKH in the pecking order.

    Billy Stretch - Stress Fracture / Toe

    Probably isn't the training regime that caused the injury, was probably bitten on the toe by petracca's f'king dog!

    My 3 word player analysis V Fremantle

    MFC - small forward problems Garlett did a bit, but not enough. Spargo was similar. We are in desperate need of a solution when the ball is brought to ground inside our forward 50. Melksham and Nibbler are also cooling off meaning we are very Hogan and Tmac reliant for kicking a winning score I don't have the answer, but this might be something to address in the draft.

    Harmes and Wagner re-sign

    Chomp earned his 2 years. Has continued to build his game and is in best 22 now. A bit surprised with wags, but it makes sense for depth considering Vince might not go on and lever is 10 months away from playing footy. I hope both boys can have some success
  12. I f we want to cultivate a premiership culture then we need to recruit coaches with premiership experience. No point bringing our old crew back, they haven't tasted premiership success so how are they going to help build a premiership culture here?

    How to beat Melbourne

    I think the easiest way to beat us is to play accountable football for 4 quarters. That's contributed to a number of our losses this season. Mind you, when we play 4 quarters of accountable football we win. Pretty hard to knock us off when we are up.

    Lewis on AFL360

    At least Lewis didn't reference bathwater or fugazi.... I'm glad he came out and said exactly what he should have. No nonsense and factual about where we are at.

    Is Jeffy Garlett just trade bait now?

    Of the Dee's get offered a pick around 40-50 they will probably take it.

    Trengove to Debut for Port

    Good luck to him. If anyone deserves some luck from the football gods it's him.

    Stage Fright

    Hard to see any finals matches having less than 40k in attendance. They need to adjust to the big stage quickly.

    Is Jayden Hunt Injured?

    The only way Hunt comes back a month early is if he is playing for Essendon in 2012 during the Hird/Dank administration.... Probably just an oversight..

    Can We Save Our Season?

    Season isn't lost, we just have to win against some quality opposition. It's no fun just beating up on the bottom 6 then getting done by the top 8. Vince and Lewis aren't a viable option down back together, but there aren't too many other options to replace them given neither player can move into the middle. Not sure who could go back, shame Hunt is injured. Would like to see what we have in Petty, Baker, Weeds and even Balic in the back end of the season. Not saying they will immediately help but will give us an idea of where they fit next season.

    Changes v St Kilda

    I think most would agree with you there.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    No wrist slashing here, it's called a dose of reality. My comments are fair. We haven't beaten anyone, and until we do we are not contenders. Port aren't contenders either, but I'm not talking about them Lord.
  22. Lewis is pretty safe with the ball. I'm under no illusions that he could out run a tortoise, but he is not the problem. His job is to lead and steer the troops off the ball which he is doing a good job of. Our defensive spread is pretty good, and Lewis has been huge helping that happen. Last night wasn't his best game, but he wasn't near our bottom 6 or 8 last night.

    Marc Murphy at the Dees.

    I don't think he would be a high dollar player, and Carlton will coerce him into free agency to land a high compo pick. Would be a short term upgrade for us. I'm not convinced our midfiled is complete, and could use him to go up a notch.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    I woke up angry. I stayed off here last night because my blood was boiling, and didn't want to offend my demon brethren. This one annoyed me more than the Hawks and Pies loss. We dominated and still lost!!!???! We pay superstar dollars but don't get superstar performances from our big names on the big stage. So very angry about this one.

    Changes v St Kilda

    The way I see it is that we have dropped two winnable games in a row, and a message needs to be sent to to the crew that it simply isn't good enough. There are probably about 6 guys in the side that should be dropped after the past two weeks, but we don't have 6 to replace them. The club needs to roll the dice and see what we have with a Petty or Baker. Could be an upgrade over Joel or Tim Smith. Garlett needs to come back in and it think we need to look and see if Balic is capable at AFL level.
