    Recruiting a 3rd tall forward to find another 50 goals?

    The answer is obvious, get Lewis to have a chat to his old friend Roughead to come across as a delisted free agent.

    Simon Goodwin & coaching staff will restore faith

    Actually if you look at that broadly most of these sides are there for at least a couple of years (sometimes 2 in 3), often 3 or more. The Dockers of 2006 being the glaring anomaly.

    Dees who may be gone in 2019

    Clubs that are challenging (in premiershop window) don't make wholesale list changes (thats for rebuilding); the good ones will take a more surgical approach (not a slash n burn greenfields approach). Therefore 3-4 changes would likely see us done, max 5. Balic, vince, kent, king and Johnstone look likely. The important thing yo remember is whether the players coming in are better. Round 4 and 5 picks in the draft in reality are not going to be. So a free agent like Gaff would be a win (then 3 draft picks) Alternatively you add a player by trading which means a JKH or Tyson are more vulnerable but leaves a king/kent/Johnstone on the list, if sticking to about 5 main squad list changes. Note many people like to see change for change sake, but another reality is most clubs discards (players they are happy to trade or delist) rarely star at or improve another club.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Have said this before, but the answer is actually pretty simple; pay a free kick for contact of the ball (5 metres). Its pretty much already in the rules: 1) you aren't allowed to tackle (grab) a player without the ball 2) you are not allowed shepherd a player more than 5 metres off the ball 3) you are not allowed bump a player more than 5 metres of the ball apply theses and it all stops. Oh and then enforce the a simple rule amendment, if your closed fist makes contact with another player then it's an automatic 1 week suspension (If an AFL player is that careless, clumsy, clueless, that the can't hit the ball with their fist then they shouldn't be playing at this level / the don't have the skills)

    Ladder predictor

    Okay, I've had a bit of a play with the ladder predictor and it seems to be that the top 6 is pretty settled; I have the hawks as high as 5th given expected results. The final two spots come down to Roos, Dees and the Pies. A few games with these sides are 50-50, but on the law of averages the effect will be either 9th place or a bottom half of the 8. Reality is the Dee's cannot afford to drop a game to a weak team and needs win a game against gws or better. The draw of the other teams doesn't allow for any other slipups. Still if we can't win these game then reality is we also don't deserve to be there!!!

    Apparently our players dont have heads while theirs start at the hip.

    Would love to know how many goals they got from frees and setup from frees. Umpiring was atrocious, bodering on criminal.

    Shepherding the man on the mark

    The rule will be amended as soon as someone is taken out (concussed or worse) by someone hitting the person on the mark who is unaware he is there (they are, or should, be focused on the person taking the kick). Of course the rule change will be hastily drawn up, and ill conceived (as a knee jerk reaction); which smart coaches like Clarkson will quickly exploit Then to fix this they will do a series of interpretations over the next 5 years (keeping the rule committee in a job; and feeding the media with a slow day story filler whenever needed)!!!

    Changes v Richmond

    Tyson has to come in, as he is one of our ball winners. our game plan needs speed in the backline so Hunts in it also needs speed on the wing so Stretch in our pressure in the forwards is lacking so Hannan comes in we need a second ruck so Peders is needed We are really missing Tmac Hannan Hogan Fritsh Petrac Peders ANB Stretch Jones Vince Hunt Lever Salem Jetta Omac Hibberd Gawn Oliver Tyson Kent Brayshaw Lewis Wagner (though I would give serious consideration to Bugg tagging Dusty)
  13. Ungarie boy

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Tagging Mitchell was a good move (though a no brainer) tagging him with our 2nd best contested ball winner was stupid, it nullified every advantage we gained by keeping Mitchell to mid 20 possessions. Particularly since we had no Tyson. Our game plan doesn't suit our team; Contested footy is good/great; but bombing it long to 1 tall; again stupid. We also don't have the speed to play the high all or nothing defence; so when the contest gets evened the opposition forwards are free to do what they want (ably assisted by a midfield that have moved past/onwards from ours).

    Playing a handball game on wet weather day is like bringing a sword to a gun fight. - with similar results, we got slaughtered!

    Changes v North Melbourne

    Most players rarely reinvent themselves, even those that do normally do so by bringing their strength to a new position/role. Kent is fast and aggressive, but also very lazy and an unreliable kick. His attack at the contest (getting to it, while the ball is still there to be won; not arriving when the opposition have it and the only option is to apply belated pressure/tackle) was also lacking. Against the quality of opposition on reported to be on display these poor qualities are not tested or shown out, while the strength will be exemplified. He is not yet ready. On exposed form Hannan, Brayshaw and Stretch seem closest. Although our defence has looked poor, it seems a lot of this stems from our wings and forward flanks. Melskam has been out of form and our wings seem to be out of position. This can be corrected by positional changes, but I believe the coaches are trying to teach players these new roles with an eye on the future. Easy solution is for Jones to revert to Center and Salem to the wing (allows him space). Hunt to the back flank to gain confidence is also an easy option. Jones, Lewis can rotate. I'd look at Vince playing Half forward flank / wing where he could be threatening from 50-60 forcing oppositions to stretch their zones a bit further from goal (give him a checking role on their possession winner, so that he doesn't play lose). Brayshaw in Bugg would be my option, but Bugg does seem to do a lot of the team things.
