    Complacency is Dees Biggest Hurdle

    Now that almost 4 months have passed and the Rose colored glasses are off, it would be complacent to think we didn't get lucky against WCE with injuries to Darling and Kennedy and the scheduling of a r23 Brisbane match to solidify 2nd. As well as the missed shots on goal from Hawthorn all night that came as a result of the smothering Clarko press that Goody still has a few issues with. We still have a lot of work to do to improve on last years issues and the "r22 was a turning point" idea has not reached fruition until it's sustained for the full season this year (obviously) The positives of the year go without saying

    I'd forgotten how ferocious our game is over the past few months! Everyone pictured looks like they're 'in the hunt'

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    The 'me' generation that has to spend 12 times the annual median income to afford a Sydney house instead of x4 like in the 70's. Additionally you have to factor in lower mortgage interest rates, higher saving rates, lower educational debt etc. C'mon mate. The baby boomers had it easy compared to today. They are the entitled generation, if any.

    Tim Smith v Cam Pedersen

    Agree. I don't think we would have wanted to be looking for KPF depth in one years time with Pedo retirement. I recall in Neitz last year, he wasn't really able to hold onto many marks and was really doing more work as a bullocking presence, hitting packs hard to bring ball to ground and scaring defenders. Smith can be that type of player with his size, as a last resort/depth

    Dees List Envy of Competition

    West Coast adding Gaff, Collingwood adding Beams, Richmond adding Lynch and a fit D. Martin. Even Hawthorn with Scully, Wingard and a fit O'Meara are far better than their semi-final lineup. We might have an enviable list esp in regards to "the future" - which can just as easily be derailed with an injury or trade request, but there are 3 clubs right there that played better than anything we served up last year and so we have our work cut out to match and surpass them. We're really only the envy of the teams still stuck in the rebuild. Next year could be a great year of footy for the neutral with a bunch of teams contending.

    The Jack Harmes Thread

    Another Jack? I would've named him Phil so he could be given the nickname Harmful.

    The Irish

    We should scout the world and find a 2m30 giant that we can play in the ruck.

    We're training hard in the scorching heat to right a wrong of the past... not beating Adelaide by 100 points!

    Does Height matter that much?

    The game will now be dominated by ruckmen who can kick a set shot goal from a 50metre penalty from a starting zone infringement! 😂

    Lewis Giving It Everything in 2019

    All this talk about players giving everything this year has me more worried about burn out now I know every team needs to improve, but we weren't that far off it this year. A few wins and we are staring at a top 2 finish ABOVE the Eagles and their stadium and then who knows. We obviously had some glaring issues with our game plan mid year and needed a few tweaks and positional adjustments, but i just hope we don't suffer from any adverse effects of training TOO hard because we've undestimated how close we are, or being too crushed by the weight of expectations when we invariably have a few off-games next year. WCE still had their woeful games in a premiership year, case in point Essendon at home. It goes without saying that the converse of this problem is overestimating ourselves and not training hard enough. So balance. Train hard, give everything, but also know your limits.

    Gotta love his V shaped hairline, though he should dye it bright red.
