    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    Weideman is also a much better kick for goal. Distance not a problem, nor is the odd ball drop or sewing machine kicking action. A lot to like about the Weid.

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    Entitled to your opinion, but I think Tim has consistently made a contest, whereas Cam has consistently looked for cheapies, throughout their respective careers, however long they’ve been.

    TMacs Toe .... Again?

    Saw something in the last week where tom was doing some odd big-toe-focused stretches in the gym. Surely it has been an issue and they are just managing it. Wouldn’t say the sky is falling.

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    I just did. He’s tougher, harder, more selfless, has more impact on contests, etc. Of course this appraisal is all based on both of them at this precise point in time, irrespective of mid-term past performance. However Pedersen made a career out of getting cheap touches and goals, Smith has done the opposite.

    Mate, Smith is a better forward than Pedersen, and the coaching dept had informed Pedersen his future on the list depended on his ability to perform as a defender, so they obviously agreed. Both probably not up to it, but Smith a better forward. Not much else to it.

    Well, that is because “Because I do” is not actually evidence, and was never intended as such. Mate, if you can’t see with your own eyes, and are trying to rely on stats to form an opinion, your opinion is of little interest to me. Feel free to carry on.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Got a feeling Hogan might know a lot about bags.

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    Because I do, and so it seems does the footy dept. Pedersen was a poor option as forward and didn’t perform. His only value lied in his ability to be a mobile back-up ruckman, and we no longer had the need for that with Preuss coming on board.

    It’s the right option if you value Tim Smith as a forward higher than Pedersen, and in my opinion we should, and do.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Spoken would indicate that I was criticising what was said in that moment, not the individual in perpetuity. In any case, you’re pointing a finger at an entire generation as if yours is on a pedestal. Get your hand off it; we’re all scumbags.

    Spoken like a boomer entirely lacking in self-awareness. Bravo.

    I reckon that’s a bit unfair on the current generation. Previous generations would have been just as bad if the technology was available to them.
  13. 1. Kolo to be named in the AA squad of 40 after playing the entire season on the wing. 2. Jones to supplant Lewis as a permanent fixture on the HBF, with Lewis retiring at season’s end. 3. Preuss to play approx 20 games. The matchup against the Goose Duo to strike absolute fear into opposing ruckmen weeks out. Gawn was hard enough on his own. 4. Frost to seek opportunities elsewhere at season’s end, after playing < 3 AFL games. 5. Sparrow to play >5 games, earning comparisons to Luke Parker. Healthy competition for spots means he doesn’t play as many AFL games as he probably deserves to. 6. Joel Smith to entrench his place in the first 22 as a tweener utility that can play anywhere. 7. Jeffy Garlett to retire after not earning a single game for the season. 8. Fritsch takes it to another level.

    As handy as Pedo was at times, he was still soft. Happy to move on but thank him for his efforts.

    Meet Steven May

    Kolo will have you quickly forgetting that Gaff was even a possibility.
