    Farewell Dom Tyson

    Suspect it was one of Carlton, Gold Coast or St Kilda. No half decent team is offering a depth midfielder 5 years.

    Peak Petracca

    it truly blows my mind. he had a very solid season and because he didn't kick 50 goals people see it as a failure.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

    I agree. I am saying that whenever Indigenous players seem to go through form slumps there seems to be a narrative around it being related to personal issues.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

    makes me laugh how whenever an Indigenous player is out of form people automatically assume it's because of personal issues. He just had a crap season. His one-way running and one-arm, half-hearted tackles were always going to come undone in a finals team and finals-like intensity. I'm not surprised in the slightest. He needs to get his [censored] together.

    Last Flag Ladder

    So basically anyone born after 1964? lol
  7. There was a heated discussion on Reddit about this. Most of those in not in favour went along the lines of "MY PARK HURRR DURRR" and basically carried on like as if this would completely ruin the park.

    PICKS # 26 & 31 (formerly # 23 & 28)

    Given the amount of players drafted each year and the number of highly ranked key forwards, I would take it as a figure of speech and treat it as a rare occurrence. How many star key forwards have been drafted since Hogan? Not many. If any.

    Down Memory Lane # 2

    2011 was a weird season. We would belt some teams by 14 goals and then get belted by 10 goals. I'm of the opinion that neither Bailey nor management could have avoided what eventually happened. I understand there were key drivers of the fued that led to 186, but we were a one-way, "bruise free" team that had it coming. Bailey was an attacking coach and he would have had to completely change his coaching style to make us a finals contender. Given he was in his 4th season I couldn't see that happening, especially with the crew we had. I knew we were done when we lost to Carlton by 50 odd points. I think that was the "bruise free" match. You could just smell it. We were comfortably a 10th-12th team, we a poor back office and resources. This led to division, poor management of injuries, no leadership, and low morale throughout the club. 2011 really was the perfect storm. Fast, erratic change, new branding, the dumping of McDonald, and an expectation that a young brigade would lead to a flag. All with a bunch of yahoos managing the club, and no real long term vision.

    2019 Betting Odds

    He was already well noticed considering how well he polled despite missing a large chunk of games at the start of the year. Had he played to start the season and played to the standard he did for the rest of the reason, he'd have won by a mile.
  11. I probably won't be as happy as I would have been, say, 10 years ago. Now for me it's kind of like, "Just get it done already". Whereas I used to fantasise about seeing a flag.

    When you look at the team's with the toughest draws - melbourne collingwood west cost essendon hawthorn and richmond - they all play each other twice. That's 6 of last year's finalists that you'd think one might actually drop out of the top 8. There are smokies with the likes of Adelaide, Sydney, Geelong, Port, GWS and the Bulldogs, all of whom you would think have grand finals ambitions. I think we may well see a North or Brisbane sneak in this year, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of Melbourne Hawthorn or Collingwood drop out. Essendon is all the talk atm but could finish anywhere from 1st to 12th. Ultimately I think top 4 will be made up of the best defenses, we are stacked in that regard but the question is if our forward line can be as potent. I'm in two minds about 2019 just as I was last year about 2018. Finals would be ideal but this might be the toughest draw we've had in my time supporting the club (29 years).

    A History of afl.com.au

    I've been involved in digital publishing for 13 years now, and have been involved in countless website rebuilds and reboots. The feedback is generally harsh and overwhelmingly negative, because people hate change. It can be very demanding mentally because you put so much time and effort into building something, and people hate you for it.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    just goes to show, one solid 10-win season and a good off-season, and Carlton will be back on Friday night. Whilst we need to basically set the world on fire.

    2019 Fixture

    Surely not...if that's then case, then a home game against Essendon (for once), or at least a second game against Collingwood and Richmond.
