    GAMEDAY - Round 9

    Three ravens on a fence there were, As black as black as black. Said one, 'Watch your defence, it's not all about attack.' 'Be sure to spread,' the second said, 'but keep one out the back.' 'The Blues aren't bad,' the third one said, 'they're sure to have a crack.' Talking birds upon a fence each with a football brain. Take their advice and perhaps today, The Dees will win again. Dees by 22 points.

    Gerard Whately is a Moron

    What I'm taking away from this thread is that some people like one style of commentator and other people like a different style of commentator.
  3. He's overthinking it at the moment. He's been given a role - no idea what - and he's not playing confidently or fluently. Same as a lot of our players.

    Taking out the fend-off

    True, but will get Brownlow votes nonetheless.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 5

    After their premiership win, Richmond supporters are pretty insufferable. I'd like to be insufferable, too, one day.

    Backline Setup and Structure

    Keep an eye on the development of Harrison Petty. We could have a good one on our hands here.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    The Hawks were the better side blah, blah, blah, but I couldn't believe the number of times that hacks off the ground, or fluky bounces, or wild punches out of packs landed in a Hawthorn lap. Incredible.

    Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

    The Hawk I'm most worried about is Clarkson. I think he's a clever game day coach, while Goodwin is still learning. Clarkson might have a few tricks up his sleeve for first bounce and throughout the game.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 2

    For years, I've seen top teams play games against not so good teams, games where the not so good team does all right - but the top team eventually wins. Then, it's put down to 'undoubted quality', or 'talent under pressure' or just 'nous'. Top teams just continue to win games even when they play rubbish - and the lower teams can play really well and still lose to them. But when we have a game like last night, it's doom and gloom, highlighting our deficiencies and our lack of skill. I like to think we could be transitioning from a not so good team to a good team - and winning when we play badly. Yay.

    After he kicked that pearler earlier, I had hopes.

    Two words I don't want to hear after Sunday's game: reality check.

    Kane Cornes tips us to Top the Ladder

    Always thought he was an intelligent, perceptive and thoughtful ... Aargh, I can't keep it up! He's a try hard headline grabber!

    Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    A ten goal plus haul from someone, probably Hogan. It's been a long time since we've had a single player kick a swag of goals in a game.

    Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    I won't believe that we're close to a flag until we're 15 goals up in the last two minutes of the Grand Final. Even then, I'll have my doubts.

    Nibbler - how good can he be?

    Coachable.
  19. Extra points if you pronounced it 'looxury' in your head.
