  1. I don't think there was ever an issue with Max's calf. The strapping you can see on his calf is to hold a shin guard on for his ruck work, not for his calf. I think this is something the commentators may not have realised Friday night and is being misunderstood...........touch wood.
  2. In my opinion 3 KPF's works when one of them is Tom McDonald who has a tank as good if not better than most. Play him as a high half forward/2nd ruck/wing option. Leaving Hogan and Weidemann to move into vacant space forward of the ball. All good KPFs know to keep out of one another's space and that will come with time. Developing their forward "craft" together is what they should be concentrating on over summer. Move the ball quickly like we have the last 2 weeks and there is enough space for all 3 inside the 50!!
  3. Cap the free kicks to 3 per quarter per team. Have a team member umpire for your team. He chooses when he wants to pay them and for what indiscretions. This would also require a send-off rule I feel.
  4. I'm an SA based Dees fan, and I couldn't bring myself to go this weekend. Not because I couldn't get tickets but because of a few things. 1. Struggling to walk on what may be a broken foot after kicking most things within reach last Saturday night. 2. Crows supporters are complete nupties who know absolutely nothing about football. 3. If we go down again like last week, I don't want to be responsible for another fight in the crowd. 4. See 2.
  5. Lucky the Crows aren't in the top 8 then........
  6. Watts, Toumpas and Trengove will likely form the backbone of the MFC 3rds. The Port Magpies.
  7. Cheer up @bluey it's almost Christmas mate! All other clubs have at least 4 new draftees/rookies. The other 5 who are yet to debut, again most other clubs would be in the same or similar position. Even if 2 or 3 of the 9 turn out to be regular senior players, which is likely given the ratio of draftees/rookies to senior players, that's a good result.
  8. I was eight years old when I went to this game and remember it vividly! We'd driven the 4 hours from home for the game, and my old man (Dees supporter of course) was so livid we drove straight home afterwards, when we would normally stay the night. On the way home he fell asleep and I had to wake him up after he was hitting reflector posts on the side of the road. Not a great trip or memory!
  9. Agreed. How about any or all of Sam Mitchell, Lewis, Vince, Watson, Seb Ross etc. None of them have speed and are arguably very good players. If you can find the ball and use it well, along with smart positioning, means you don't need to be Jeffy to play AFL!
  10. I'm keen on seeing what Maynard can do. Let him have a run on the ball as an inside mid flat out (with rotations obviously). Got a feeling he might surprise a few with his fearless approach. We won the last game against Adelaide by smashing them around the ball. Let them get easy ball out to their runners and their forwards look like gods. I doubt Tyson will get up, and Watts is IMO certainly out.
  11. Outs IMO: Viney (inj), Bugg (susp), Tyson (inj), White (omit). Ins IMO: Hogan, Garlett, JKH, Kennedy T.Mac plays CHF up the ground. Pedo and Hogan play deeper forward. Test their young talls. Neal-Bullen goes to inside mid, it's where he belongs, he can have 20 handballs and not kick it and 10 tackles and he will have had a good day. Apart from Hogan, TMac, Omac, Gawn, Pedo, Frost, Wagner, Jetta, Hibberd and probably Jeffy, the rest of the team can rotate on the ball.
  12. End of a horror run in regards to turnarounds, happy to be 3-1 after those 4 games. Happy to take that given our injury toll over that time as well. If we can get 1-2 key players back per week over the next month, and not lose any more to injury, there is plenty to look forward to come the back end of the year! Need to lock down Docherty, Gibbs and Simpson this week.
  13. OMac can't go with Buddy and although Frost has the speed, I don't think he yet has the ability to go with Buddy either. For mine that means TMac goes back to Buddy. O'Mac to Reid and then Frost can play small given his pace. Sydney have a relatively short and quick backline so we should hopefully match up on them pretty well. Maybe Weidemann might come in though?? Kent/JKH/Kennedy can raffle it if not. Wagner for Salem for mine.
  14. Reporting just now on AFL website, that we have ruled out Hogan, Watts and Garlett. Concerning.
  15. Agreed. But then watch him get 3 weeks, appeal it, and then get the rest of the season because he plays for Melbourne..... Meanwhile Joel Selwood knocks out Nat Fyfe with a fly-kick to the head before the opening bounce and receives a $20 fine.
