  1. The drop off has been 2 years in a row at about round 20. Interestingly we are 10 times better during the 1st 5 or 6 rounds these days. I hope the club has a good look at the Swans who lost their 1st 6 or so last year. They ran out of puff but they certainly looked like they were on the money. Not saying I dont want to win against Geelong, I just want a more measured approach to the long season.
  2. 2018's 'breakout' player

    Watching the fantastic photos, I was rapt to see Hunt kicking low and hard. Im picking Hunt and Pedo. Im also hoping Brayshaw isnt as far back in the field as I unfortunately rate him.
  3. Another act of treachery by Bail Justices.
  4. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Why was there no feedback taken after the last camp? Should have been anonymous and studied. I find it difficult to believe that no feedback was sought or that it was but players were reluctant to be identified. If it wasnt reflected upon, then the coaches were not in touch or hadnt understood what the playing group had thought of it. Just sounds unprofessional or at least clumsy all around.
  5. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Id really like a FM station that had Francis Leach and say, Bob Murphy doing drive time radio. I like the Ox but I find the whole station 90% driven by dumbf##ks. Being in touch with my grump side, I can normally only last 20-30 minutes till Marko sh!ts me. I dont think it has to be dumbed down that much but a smarter (more grown up?) take on sport couldnt go wrong.
  6. Nibbler - how good can he be?

    I think his best attribute is his ability to turn on a sixpence after gathering the ball from almost full speed and then just as quickly, find and crucially hit a target.
  7. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Guthrie picks a good team.
  8. Current Television

    Watched the Goodbye to Ripponlea studios on the ABC last night. Excellent show. May have noticed a well known Demonlander in one of the shots.
  9. Ive avoided this thread but i remember the Thursday afternoon training at the junction in late August early September as the grass had a whiff of spring, and the cans were on sale. Id pay good money entry if there was a chance of a similar situation occuring. Elsternwick oval is being redone and it seems like Bayside council would entertain the thought of something so bizarrely attached to their map actually making money. Parking, trams and trains close by. Its enclosed so you have to pay to get in. Cricket and the VAFA seem to have it but it is incredibly underutilized.
  10. Bugg and Pederson to have great years. Hogan and Petracca to stay promising. Tom MacDonald to be match winner again at least twice. ANB to be 1st 22. I hope to see more short passes lace out inside the 50.
  11. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Queries remain over Salem, VDB and especially Brayshaw for me. We need them to be at their best for us to win at least one final. 2 out of 3 aint bad. I think Frost and Oscar will be better this year. I have Pederson getting early games and if not injured, having an excellent year. I cant see Lewis and Vince playing more than the 1st few games as they lack concentration. It wont be overlooked. This may play into Salems hands although he seems to have similar issues with discipline. We have the cattle but next year we need mids that feed forwards better than this year.
  12. DRAFT DAY 2017

    We did well.
  13. DRAFT DAY 2017

    Charlie Spargo 175cm Missed the season after shoulder surgery but known for his attack on the footy and goal sense. Originally zoned to GWS but now available to any club. Turns 18 the day after the draft.
  14. 2008 Redrafted

    I dont have Gus in my 22. I cant see the reason for all the enthusiasm. I hope Im wrong. But to have him top 5 in his draft year - wow. It reminds me of a Beatles interview in there younger days "Hey John, what do you think about Ringo being voted best drummer in the world?" "He isnt even the best drummer in the band".
