  1. The Ox says the Dees in danger ....

    The subtext in Ox's obvious observation is all about avoiding complacency ie improvement is not a given and will need to be fought hard for, more so if there's any adversity on the injury front. Just messaging for the young bucks in the playing group....from that wise old owl the Ox!
  2. Trade rumours

    How many you expecting to bat for Brayshaw Self ? !! Is it 3 strikes and you're out? !
  3. 2017 Post Mortem

    I just emailed them noting that rule one of crisis management is you can't say nothing!! I'm really surprised they didn't have a contingency plan in place for this eventuality and that they didn't convene yesterday evening to work out when to launch it. It's a bit embarrassing to be honest.
  4. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    This is just semantics Ungarie boy. Losing because there's not enough on the line to push for a win is akin to not showing up mentally. No doubt they'll probably run out this afternoon wanting to win but it may well be wanting to win conditionally ie so long as we don't have to put our bodies on the line / risk injury. If however, for some reason they have a preference for playing either Richmond or GWS at home next week (and wherever the balance of the finals draw likely heads after that), we have afforded them the possibility to pick and choose and obviously our fate swings with it.
  5. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    Hey @Ungarieboy only three out of the selected Crows side so far! But there's no way they're flirting with form against WCE right?
  6. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    In the fwiw category, interesting discussion on the Pies Big Footy board about the merits of losing against the Dees so as to finish 13th and get an easier 2018 draw (obviously assuming the Hawks lose tonight). Some even see the Reid general soreness out as being indicative of this being a consideration.
  7. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 23

    For those who dismissed the prospects of Adelaide not going as hard as possible against West Coast, they've seen fit to pull Walker and Talia out of the selected side. Don't leave anything to chance Dees.....
  8. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 23

    For all those in attendance tomorrow, please remember at the appropriate point in the game (assuming things go to plan!!) to: - ask Taylor Adams if this is what a successful club's footy looks like - ask Dunny and Howie if it's enjoyable playing for a successful club - ask if it's time for "Press Red for Ed" - ask those in the black and white around you if they're enjoying THEIR grand final. You'll hear me on lvl 1 of the MCC!
  9. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 23

    @Petraccattack @Deemented Are Go! Gents, I did look up some of the earlier rounds this year and there was an instance where he tipped us. But only one and certainly not any time in the second half of the season! So he definitely has an issue!! Collectively, the Dogs have lots of issues I guess!
  10. Training - Thursday 24th August, 2017

    see my posts in the Match Preview thread
  11. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 23

    TMac and Hannan formed the rehab group initially (but joined in general training later on). No Viney. Everyone else was there (other than the long term injuries). Vandenberg was wandering around the area early on. Everyone looked up and about except for Frost as noted
  12. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 23

    Back slaps for Watts and Salem at training this morning after the huddle in the centre of Gosch's Paddock towards the end. They are in the team. Frost prominent in terms of a bowed head for much of training - the separate thread on his future may well have some currency.
  13. Round 22 - Non MFC Games

    Indeed. We are around 28 points worth of percentage ahead of West Coast currently. It would be good if after today that was 70 points, meaning that a 20 point loss to the Pies would still require a 50 point win by West Coast to dislodge us. Better still Dees, let's just win the last two games unequivocally! This site is a good place to follow the equation: http://www.liveladders.com/AFL/
  14. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 22

    The words quoted in http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-08-18/dees-hopeful-skipper-will-be-right-for-round-23 are "we're really positive" The article makes it clear that the injury is different location wise to the plantar fascitis procedure but makes reference to recovery from it so one wonders if this latest injury is referred in nature due to Viney favouring the recovery from the pf operation. Do we know if it's the same foot?

    Perhaps it's a legacy of having grown up as a Filth supporting [censored]???? !!!
