    Can only see one frequent weakness in the backline. Guess who?
  2. Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    There is great literary, philosophic and extremely esoteric meaning in these words, and these come from a long way back in a time when most things were quite straight forward, including umpiring, Well said, Dedogtor. ...breaking a Tom Scully tackle and his leg to kick the winning goal?

    Hell, that is a great consideration. Fits nicely with a total running game to have two feeders in tandem.

    One of my greatest hopes with the team is that Billy Stretch can emulate a reasonable percentage of the fine running, ball-carrying and disposal that his father, Stephen, was able to achieve on all grounds.
  5. Sponsorship Problem?

    Win a few early, impress the AFL monolith and the true-blooded fans, stay aloof as best as possible from the sponsorship debate, honour the jumper by not carrying a viral logo from a sponsor - and allow the team to get on with it. We could do worse. Then, be selective as to who is knocking on the door. Go slowly...

    Yes, good discussion, Macca. Agree with you in general and the roles of CHF-FF players, these days. Thanks for your comments. Ideally, I'd reckon it is going to be a potent forward line, as well. I have visions of a new running game coming this year from the backline into offensively effective territory. Cheers!

    Yep TPF39, pre-season anxiety genuinely stimulated; these photos have that magic effect. Anticipation seems to be at fever pitch right across the board. Thanks to the great photos from those who have contributed to this site.

    He is very close but not quite there, yet. Trac will be there if he can get his 'engine' to last a whole game at full bore.

    It is a great idea. My only worry with Hogan is his inability to kick the distance in a set shot from 50m out. He needs to be mobile within that range and this may require him to further develop a kicking style, 'on the run'. His snaps from inside ranges have been very good, accurate and blindingly fast to execute, re-balance and/or take a step to balance. Just a thought.

    Seen a good deal of that, OMac - feet flat on the ground, thinking out loud 'What do I do next?', 'Maybe if I stand here looking like I can occupy this ground the rest of the game will go around me, perhaps?', 'Hey, they did!' Gutsy stuff, I'd reckon.

    Just saw the recent photos on Demonland. Frosty will star at full back. Pedo will star in the fwd line. End of story.

    Great photos....and look at Frosty! Talking of a 'breakout' year, I am changing my position. Both Frosty and Pedo are going to scar the whole competition this coming season with fear, trepidation and unstoppable defensive and forward excellence. Watch out Collingwood - they're coming to get you!!!

    Memories fade, SWYL. Can you remind me of: what was the alarm, and Carlscum players' talk with Ratten, broken bones. Just cannot recall these things but a stir of the grey matter may be of assistance, if you wouldn't mind. Kind regards....

    Twas a beauty!
