  1. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    Like Belichick. Doesn't start with any particular plans but adapts to the opposition.
  2. Backline Setup and Structure

    Exactly. I reckon Essendon would have similar or worse stats, but they are media darlings, plus the media have to all pile in on a different team each week. Carlton seem to be escaping such scrutiny. Guess a few 'journos' might have parted with a few $$$ backing us on the weekend.
  3. Backline Setup and Structure

    Absolutely, and at least 4 or 5 of us in this thread have said the same thing. I really didn't like it at the JLT game in Hobart when the last defender was attacking side of the centre line when the ball was just inside forward 50. Even that day North got a few easy ones out the back. Shortening the field does not work in AFL. In soccer it does but that is on a narrow field and there is an offside rule.
  4. Shepherding the man on the mark

    There was a bit of #freekickhawthorn going on yesterday.
  5. NFL

    I'd take Dez at the Jags. I reckon he would be an unbelievable slot receiver, like Anquan Boldin or Larry Fitz.
  6. Backline Setup and Structure

    There should never be more than 2 go up at any contest. Someone should always stay down. The other thing that annoys me it the lack of an anchor that sits goal side of the last opposition player. Phil Davis does it for GWS and some other teams do it.
  7. Shepherding the man on the mark

    It drove me mental all game. As said above, it was holding not shepherding and should have been a free kick every time. That wouldn't fit in with #freekickhawthorn though. Free kick count was 27-24 their way but it felt more like 30-15. Razor and co certainly gave them a ride back into the game and it gave them all the momentum they needed to do what happened.
  8. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    There's no team absolutely flying at the moment. In the first 6-8 rounds it's all about getting wins to setup the rest of the season and top 4 or 8 finishes. The worst thing to me is we should be 4-0 or at the worst 3-1. We have already [censored] away one win and really need to in 4 or the next 5 to set things up post-bye. The main issues I see are the defensive press is way too high - if we are going to press that high there has to be an anchor 20 metres goal side of the last opposition player; not having a second tall in the forward line - either Pedo or Weid will do the job; and we are too slow leg speed wise. Hunt must come back in next week. We were 2-3 last year and recovered well enough. Beat the Tigers and 3-2 could easily be 7-2 or 6-3.
  9. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    We will be 12th in around 10 minutes.
  10. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    Below 100% in one game. Weaker than Carlton. They have an excuse. They are [censored].
  11. Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

    Easy way to counter that is to move Jordan to the forward line. I think we win by around 20 points.
  12. I'm also sure the deliberate out of bounds only got a mention by Hocking as Geelong were a victim of it, but the other two examples were added to give the impression it wasn't only about the Cats.
  13. Goal review review review review

    Depends who is playing. Seems when the Pies are playing it looks badly pixellated but for others it is crystal clear.
  14. Goal review review review review

    If the ball is touched on the mark but the field umpire does not rule this happened then it should not be looked at in a score review. There should also be a 60 second limit where if it cannot be decided then 'Umpires Call' is the decision.
  15. Round 3 Non MFC games

    Saints also give away free tickets to anyone who wants them.
