  1. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Agree. and few 7.25 games on Seven on Saturdays evening will go into Melbourne live also.
  2. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Fair comment and I hear you Hardtack. I was obviously meaning I can't remember ever winning at either Hobart or Sydney venues, whereas as I have seen all recent wins in Adelaide and that could continue hopefully.
  3. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    No Hobart and no Sydney - Swans and GWS both in Melb. That balances some of the other bad news well IMO.
  4. Peter Jackson on SEN 24/10/17

    He was stronger than the above on Watts. He said only 1 club interested, then followed up with "...that tells you something..."
  5. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    Seriously? . 1 team wanted watts. Geelong lost interest. What does that tell us.? Good call by the club.
  6. yes it does. and I agree, but the issue for me is the " what if..." The club clearly have a strong view on list quality which I agree with. No finals next year will be a bigger disaster than 2017
  7. And the sky might fall too. Confusing post. We have a great list , and strong backlines win flags, but "...if we finish bottom 4..."
  8. Mahoney, get away

    Agree. Terry Wallace did an excellent review on SEN late today describing the whole points process of draft positions values and methodically worked through the Lever deal. A good deal both teams in his opinion. Further he emphasised the view that this rounds out what a finals list now looks like. The club have the faith from hereon. Mahoney and recruiters know what they are doing.
  9. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Bingo - ish! But what does this say about depth too , missing ABrayshaw, AVDB, Maynard, Hannan ?
  10. A really sensible post and an insight into Mahoney's thinking. As said earlier, they are backing in the talent there now, topping up, allowing Tom Mac flexibility and saying again - destination club.. This stat from MikeAlpha says we have pro rata 4 times as many good Under 22's than we should on average. Mission accomplished. Beating yourselves up over picks or whatever is meaningless and not how business gets done in real life. A key message there I reckon.
  11. Good Win? ... I don't know...

    A terrific article. Thanks RPFC. But as an aside, I hark back to Goodwin's press conference after the Carlton game when he spoke brilliantly and with feeling about his thoughts on culture and what he expects. I think he has what we need, and will develop.
  12. Adelaide tanked

    After last night its official. Presumably gil will announce an enquiry on monday. ? Oh wait. Its the afl we're talking about here.
  13. Parallel universe. The runs look great but uhtil there is consistent reliable targetting all they are is spectacular. He needs finals standard disposal. I dont care about the torp goal. Once in a lifetime and doesn't win games.
  14. Comedy re: Hunt also: So not being able to hit a target or nail a running open goal isn't a pre-requisite for selection? Interesting.
  15. Goody sings the blues

    I think he makes good points on analysis, noting the warning signs were there in Round 15 and onwards. Citing the St Kilda fast start but nearly blown, as with Port Adelaide game. Knows there is work to do but the foundation is there. The timing of the message was appropriate - no one wanted to hear these messages earlier in the week. And about just getting to finals is not good enough, its about winning them. I liked that. I doesn't make me feel better but with our line up we would have been creamed this weekend.
