    Go and get Gaff!

    He'd be irresponsible to stay... ergo he will leave. Not sure if it was Healy or not, but Gerard usually gets pretty good mail. He's pretty close to a number of players.

    Go and get Gaff!

    From one of the commentators over the weekend (sorry can't remember which one, but it may have been Gerard Healy) was that with the money the Eagles had offered Gaff he'd be financially irresponsible to stay. I think they're probably pretty keen to get the other McGovern who apparently definitely wants out of the Crows - so that limits what they can pay Gaff whose compensation they would need to help get McGovern.

    Changes vs Western Bulldogs

    With Casey playing in 'heavy' conditions as well, it will be a case of wait and see during the week to see who pulls up OK in terms of recovery. The only real fresh player is Bernie who didn't play this week. He has to come in for Lewis who should get a week off to help him recover. If Smith doesn't get up then someone else will need to come in as I am firmly in the camp of not playing Vince and Lewis together in the back line. Probably Hannan. I was chuffed for Frosty and his first game back last night, and I think as soon as Kent and AVB get some miles back in their legs ANB will come under serious scrutiny to hold his spot.
  4. AVB 16 tackles. Now there's a man making up for lost time. Expect him back in the seniors if he can string together a few more games like that.

    Slobbo's Mid Year All Australian

    Grundy gets the nod, because Eddie thinks he'll win the Brownlow... and 9-10 Herald Sun readers are Collingwood supporters - the ones that actually still bother to go to a newsagent to buy a paper anymore. No Neville Jetta either. A complete outrage.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 11

    Let's not forget he's also played some very good games as a run-with players as well (at least once this year). He offers some versatility. I wouldn't be surprised to see him run with Sidebottom on the weekend.

    I have only one thing to say after that. Suck Arse Jed Lamb you toe rag!

    Big Clubs Rule the AFL

    The example they used on 360 was from.our game against the Saints with Clarrie vs Carlisle, but Clarrie is watching the ball, so how is that a block compared to Langford vs the Swans when he never looks at thw ball. Storm in teacup. Maybe Clarko should appoint the umpires too!

    The Curnow Brothers at the Tribunal

    The only co fidence I have is he's an ex Cat. Not that that would ever be a factor?

    The Curnow Brothers at the Tribunal

    Yeah nah. You're still running on a logical algorithm that two identical incidents will be treated in the same manner by the tribunal. You clearly haven't been paying attention for the last few years. ?

    Changes vs Gold Coast

    I think both Viney and Salem come back in. Who for will be tough. I'd also like Garlett to come back in with our new structure up forward as he's able to provide more opportunities than Hannan IMO.

    Dom Tyson

    He must hate his team mates judging by how regularly he bandpasses to them as they are about to be mown down!

    Changes Vs Essendon

    I wasn't. He was playing poorly.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Wouldn't be the first coach to be out coached by Clarko.

    Changes v Richmond

    Agree with your comments. Lever was Brave today. There were a handful of players who continually put their head over the ball and their bodies on the line and he was one of them. Frost has a lot of attributes, but football smarts aren't one of them. Can be depended upon to give away multiple free kicks every match by doing dumb s***.

    Which is exactly what Richmond fans said of Hardwick.

    Changes v Richmond

    Please drop Lewis Goody

    Changes v Richmond

    I agree, but sadly I don't think the FD will be brave enough to drop Lewis, but it would send the right sort of message Goodwin wants the players to bring in terms of non-negotiables.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    Clarkson expects his players to play hard uncompromising football. We don't play hard, uncompromising football, we have a bunch of milksops who run off to the AFLPA instead of confronting the FD about a camp they'd rather not do.

    Changes v Richmond

    OUT: Bugg, Harmes, Melksham.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Bit hard on Max his job is to get his hand on the ball, it's his midfielders job to get to the fall. Oliver had 29 touches (25 contested) where were his mates? God Help us if Pedo or Weids change the outcome. We all know that the players that would have made a difference today are Jack and Tom who are both comfortably in our best 6-8 players. We were soft and ineffectual around the ball with no clean users. Hawthorn understandably have a better drilled team with a better system, but it was our lack of intensity after quarter time that was the killer.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Don't know I wasn't in the rooms, but the footage usually shows them talking to their line coaches. I assume Ben Matthews as the midfield coach is under the most pressure, as the run ons sides get usually start and finish in the midfield.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    No Max pantsed McEvoy in the Ruck. A second tall whether Weideman (1 good game in a row) or Pedo (still only playing half a game in the twos). The problem was our smalls were either missing (Garlett and Fritsch before the final quarter) or were mediocre (Melksham), poor (Harmes) or a complete liability (Bugg). It also would have helped if we could get another onballer to assist Oliver. We played really dumb footy. Nitpicking I know, but we have four injuries. vandenBerg I think would be handy as a bigger body.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Yes he did, he mentioned it in his pre match interview that they needed to play wet weather football.

    I said to my better half he should enjoy the last free kick of the game because it will be the last one of his AFL career. He should never play seniors again. He is a complete liability. Surely even guys like Spargo and Baker would be better options.
