    This is beyond awful.

    I see that Port have four ex-demons in their side.
  3. Dees Fitness Guru Rob Jackson jumps ship to Umpires

    Umpires' High Performance Manager? If they want high performing umpires they need to spend less time in the gym and more time studying the rules and watching game footage.
  4. AFLW: Rd 2 Vs Adelaide at Casey

    That was a damn good win against quality opposition. Our midfield and HB line absolutely spanked them and the skills were way better than last week. Mifsud had a big impact up forward as well, even though she didn't show up so much in the stats. She'll only be more dangerous in the next few weeks once she knocks the rust off. I think we have a really dangerous forward line starting to take shape which is a bit of a surprise to me. There really isn't any area where we are lacking provided we can keep this team on the park.
  5. AFLW: Rd 2 Vs Adelaide at Casey

    It's going to be a very interesting game. We need to dominate the midfield I think, because they have the better forwards.
  6. Un-sportsman like conduct

    So you're saying that upper management will spruik the idea to the media and tell everyone how successful it is while in reality nobody else takes it up and we are loudly mocked by the other clubs?
  7. Un-sportsman like conduct

    I don'd disagree with this in theory, but practically there are issues. This would be another hard to quantify rule leaving everything up to the interpretation of the umpires and/or MRP. They are already notoriously inconsistent with their rulings. How could you realistically expect them to apply this rule in a fair and even-handed manner? Do you think you'd ever see a WC player cited in a home game? Or a Hawthorn or Geelong player cited at all? It would turn into another way to let the AFL's darlings walk all over the other teams while penalising anyone who dared to retaliate.
  8. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Honestly, as good as it is to have a win I wasn't impressed with our side. We won because we have harder ball-winners and Cranston had a big final quarter, but we were badly outplayed. GWS had far better skills. We only had a couple of players who could hit targets by foot while they were consistently hitting mid-range passes and maintaining possession. Last season we played a high-possession game. If we want to continue with that style this year the skills need to improve drastically.
  9. Maroochydore training camp

    I'm working that day
  10. Season prediction

    I have us 2-3. Carlton to be the big improvers. They've added midfield quality and now have two top quality forwards. I suspect they'll be there at the GF, with either us or Adelaide as opponents.
  11. Maroochydore training camp

    Par for the course for this club sadly.
  12. Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    I want a flag. That'd be nice. Also, I want to see Jack Watts get suspended for striking.
  13. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    Guess that's why they didn't nominate him. Lucky for us from the sound of things.
  14. The Most Talented List According to Champion Data

    These lists from Champion are inherently biased towards older lists. They base their rankings on the team's performance over the past three seasons. Many of our first side don't even have data from three seasons to put up, and certainly not impressive numbers in the firsts. This doesn't mean that they aren't a better group than sides like Collingwood. It's just that those sides are packed full of veterans with big numbers in the past to increase their ranking.
  15. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    I'm amazed that anyone at the club though this camp was a good idea in the first place. You don't see Barcelona FC sending their players on a punishing "torture" camp to bond as a team. I'm pretty sure none of the NFL sides do it. Do Rugby teams? I wouldn't know, but it seems to me to be something entirely limited to the AFL. Maybe our coaches should take a leaf from some of the bigger, more professional sports around the world and focus on fitness and skills rather than bonding through shared adversity.
