    Round 14 Non MFC Games

    Nothing hard about that Febes, should be rubbed out for the rest of the year

    Changes v St Kilda

    OMac could be missing due to his hit on Marshall. Shouldn’t be, but you know the AFL! Other changes depend on form at Casey today. Garlett needs to play a blinder as his previous VFL form has been average at best. If Spargo is better, I would bring him in, for Tyson or Harmes. A good game from Weid and he comes in for Tim Smith. Stretch in the mix, again for Tyson or Harmes. Goodwin was pleased with the “behaviours” of the team, so don’t think there will be too many changes

    Home ground disadvantage

    I don't think physicality is the issue Big D. We lack leg speed which is exposing us on the wider ground, against the teams equipped to exploit it. And I wouldn't be pencilling in St Kilda and Freo, if we don't bring the right mindset to those games..........

    Ladder predictor

    Ladder predictors are a waste of time. Here is the only prediction meaningful - No-one can beat Richmond on the MCG

    Petracca in a rut?

    Not a great draft for GWS - Jarrod Pickett at 4, now with Carlton, Caleb Marchbank at 7, now with Carlton, Paul Ahern at 6, now with North.

    Petracca in a rut?

    https://afltables.com/afl/stats/players/C/Christian_Petracca.html Hi Ernest, table above. Averaged around 19 possessions a game in 2017

    Petracca in a rut?

    I think some of you may be judging Christian on what you "think" he should be as opposed to what he is delivering. He is on target to better his 2017 stats in most areas, especially 1% ers, other than goals kicked (that would be because of the different role he is playing this year). Also, don't forget he missed a year with an ACL. And please don't compare him with DeGoey, one is a fine young man, the other a f....wit.
  8. Not exactly banging the door down at Casey. You would have to think that there are others ahead of him, such as Bugg, Tyson, JKH. What role would he play? Replacement for either of Hannan or Fritsch? No thanks. Would like to see him stay on the list though as his upside is youth

    We could miss finals with 13 wins

    So Maynard, Dunn, Crisp, Howe, Scharenburg and Langdon is any better? Easy to say in hindsight. I would venture to say that if the midfield clearance dominance was reversed, then it would have been us by 7 goals!

    Changes v Port

    Petty in for Vince. Joel Smith can play a running defender role, he has pace. Hunt has not done enough in the Casey games to warrant selection. Nor has Garlett. Nor, for that matter, has Weideman, but going forward he is a better option than Pederson. I would give Pedo another go against Port. Tyson could come in, one of ANB, Hannan or Petracca to go out.

    11 Down, 11 To Go

    Ladder predictors don't factor in the upsets, which will happen. Any team thinking they have a win in the bag is heading for a loss. Yes, we do have a hard run home, but I think we have shown enough over the past 6 weeks to know we can match it with anyone. We keep bringing the same intensity and skills to each game, then we are going to win most. A week at a time!

    Post Match Discussion - Round 10

    And during the game outside the ground, running laps with Dom Tyson. Professional attitude. The tide has turned.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 9

    Agree with all of that. Outstanding 4 quarter performance.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Yes, something we seem to lack at the moment
