    Post Match Discussion - Round 6

    Last year we couldn't beat the rubbish teams, Nth, Freo etc, and won games we weren't expected to win, Adelaide, WC etc. Good to see Hibberd, Jetta, Brayshaw and Hannan find some form. Hannan and Brayshaw need to keep it going. Frischte and Spargo both look good for 1st year players.

    The last time they met

    Missed Trac and Hibberd who both played okay week 1 & 2. Seems to be a lot of room for improvement from the rest of the team.

    Injury List - Season 2018

    Great to see the injury list numbers coming down, but still hurts to have two of our best six out. Clarry, Max, Hoges, Trac are the others in my top 6. Hibberd, Jones & Jetta on the edge, even though Jetta is out of form!

    The last time they met

    We got crucified by the umpires at the "G" last year. It would be great to have a non umpire impacted game against the Roos and finally bury this hoodoo! Don't care by how much as long as we win. 10 goals plus would be great as would ease the nerves compared to a last kick type result. Gawn, Clarry, Hogan, OMac have played well in both games, would be great to see the rest of the team play well this week.

    Name 3 good things

    1. Agree with many others - Max, Trac, Oliver and eventually Viney will be fantastic for next 5 plus years 2. Only lost by 3 points with half the team having poor-ordinary days 3. Oscar improving 3 positives for next week A. Tyson, Bugg and one of Frost or Brayshaw in to replace Maynard, Hannan, & Wagner B. Hogan fit C. 4 solid quarters with no 30plus negative quarters

    Tom McDonald - Ready to Re-sign?

    Very happy to see TMac in the forward line, great competitor, keeps going all day, if he kicked 50 it would be great, as he will also keep ball in forward line and create opportunities for others. that winning goal against the Weagles was one of the season highlights. Sign him quickly for 3-4 years.

    AFLX PREMIERS!!!

    Only saw the GF, but Wagner is a real worry when he gets the ball, can't see him in top 30. Melksham looked good.

    TMac will be better at FF as he only has to worry about goals. He has become a great set shot for goal, somewhat surprisingly to me and the goal he got against the WCE, showed his strength and how he can keep the ball in and around the goals with his tackling & pressure. Team seems much better balanced with Lever going into backline and Tommy to FF. Lever OMac Jetta (OMac can feed ball to Lever who has VG vision) Salem Frost Hibberd (Salem can drop back and become designated to take the kickout, also Frost has Salem / Hibberd who he can hand off the ball when under pressure ) Hunt Oliver Lewis (Hunt speeding into forward line and kicking barrels at goal, at least once for the season!) Melksham Hogan Petracca (Hogan & Petracca providing marking targets and both have great vision) Garlett TMac Harmes (Garlett & Harmes speed and tackling pressure) Gawn Jones Viney (Gawn fit to have a big year, giving Viney, Jones & Oliver armchair service) ANB Brayshaw Tyson (Provides great depth to the midfield and ANB also can go up forward) #22 Hannan, Bugg, Stretch, J Smith, Weideman or Pedo (Depends what we need for team balance on the day) I know I'm derailing thread but couldn't find the best 22 thread! Some luck with injuries, the draw doesn't have many 6 day breaks, and we should be good to finally make the eight!

    TMac goalsquare, leveraging his accurate kicking, and he just has to focus on goals. Hogan CHF where we can leverage his vision and ability to bring others into the contest. Assuming Watts goes we need someone with some vision and footy smarts high half forward.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Personally I would definitely keep Watts, and would have liked Roos to stay. Goodwin is a first year coach, see how he goes next year. Even this year just a better run with injuries and we definitely would have made the 8. Injuries aside we still should have made it, an opportunity missed.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Gawn was injured for 12 weeks, Hunt pole axed his head against the Crows and took a long while to recover, Watts also struggled with injury. Vs Oliver improved out of site! ANB & Petracca both improved. Team improved wins & %.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Personally I would keep Watts as he has vision and skill to execute, and Melbourne do not have many highly skilled players. If Goodwin and the FD feel he is not committed to being professional, then it is probably time he moves on. It just feels like we haven't got his best and anywhere near what he should be capable of producing. My hope is we get something good in exchange, that brings skills we lack.

    Good Win? ... I don't know...

    Tigers top 4 players Martin, Rance, Cotchin & Riewoldt all played 150 plus games, between them hardly missed a game, as you mention, then if you take Demons equivalent for importance of Oliver, Hogan (missed 8 games), Gawn (missed 12 games), Viney (missed 6 games) plus Jones missing 6, it kills you. Look at Swans 0-6 start of season due to injuries, and GWS injury toll across the season, kills your season in the end. Take two of the above top 4 Tigers out for 6 weeks and they wouldn't have finished top 4 or possibly even the eight. All the BS about depth is crap, you can cover for a few games, but as Choco Williams said mid year, try replacing a Martin or Rance with number 23 or 24 from your list. Tigers did get total commitment from their 22 which is the other thing we need. Remembering all the Tiger supporters who wanted to sack Hardwick last year and trade a lot of their players, sometimes you need to be patient!

    Soft draw, no injuries, couldn't even win a home final, you must be joking.
