    Match Report - Preliminary Final

    A number of the falls led to turnovers and goals - must be an answer - suspect footwear? I hope someone asks Goodwin - might be a detail that we missed? And I hope Brayshaw (who tried his guts out, but was uncharacteristically sloppy) was not concussed last week .

    GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

    Off to the son-and-heir's place to watch it. Can't stand the wait.

    Where to watch the game - Melbourne V WCE

    Billy Thorpe 1960's/70's Lock up your daughters 1990's Lock up your mothers Ah dear...

    David King thinks Eagles will Belt Us.

    Kennedy and Darling vs Frost and OMac. That's the worry for me. OMac is very variable in his one-one work. Much comes down to controlling their delivery into those guys. Neville get LeCras

    Post Match Discussion - Semi Final

    Some chat about Oliver being "looked at" for flopping. I was there but didn't see it. Any thoughts?

    GAMEDAY - Semi Final

    This - they will jump into Max and tackle him to the ground hard. We need to respond, if there's violence, with totally disproportionate physical power. No more Troy Simmonds. If that sort of stuff happens, one of them doesn't get up.

    Petracca: Belief from Within

    His kick to TMac and his handball to Jones against the Cats were pure class - the handball in particular. He read the play, intercepted the ball b/n 2 Cats and fired out to Jones - amazing skill and power. Keeps playing his role. Leaving soon... Feeling ill

    Finals Tickets

    Yep - just bought one for me and one for the son and heir
  18. What if they isolate Hawkins. Really isolate (pagans paddock style) I know the midfield battle is crucial but I'm more worried about the raw 1 on 1in their forward line

    GAMEDAY - Elimination Final

    MFCSS prevents me for saying or thinking anything rational about this game. I will just go and suffer.
  20. Richmond and Hawthorn have done very well in finals without dominating contested possession. Not sure what this means, but I'd be interested to learn. Go Dees

    Open Training - Saturday, 1st September, 2018

    Down there with the son and heir. Agree about some missed targets. Trac reminds me of those super talented batsmen who can hit any shot to any ball. They sometimes get them selves out by having too many options. Trac is like that with his kicking. High, low, curving etc etc. Dead opposite of boring Tmac-run straight and kick straight. Tmac also sporting the very serious black socks/black boots combo.

    The Ox reaction to yesterday's win!
