  1. Nathan Jones is the problem

    Don’t know if he’s the problem but he’s just a b grade mid. Our A grade mid should be back in 6-8 which is helpful.

    8 goals and Melksham kicked 4 of those. How many games of footy do you win with 8 goals? Second tier mids have no tricks are slow and can’t score. What do they contribute ?
  3. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    Reckon weare getting there with the cattle. Last 6 spots , no Viney, T Mac and Father Time problems atm. Have youngsters on the rise in the seconds Weideman, Spargo, Petty We bombed away 2nd quarter against Geelong and got hammered on the rebound. Same last week. Can’t believe the players don’t know what is expected in this regard, or if it has anything to do with game day coaching. IMO not the coach, when we get close to best 22 and digits are out we can get it done. Focus really on a few this week as 1/2 dozen have been carrying us.

    The matter of addressing the Collingwood loss last year lasted a long time. Must have really bothered them.
  5. Have no doubt that Max wants to make amends for last year. Same for Oliver, Petracca and Hoges. These blokes truly die for the cause. The rest haven’t shown either a spine or ability. In some cases both. Hunt and Stretch should have been in the side from the start . Both have skills and smarts and Harms , Melksham and others simply don’t. Amazes me the coaches have missed this. Also excited about Viney and TMac being back in about 4 months when we are in about 14th.
  6. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Imagine those stats won’t be lost on the board and please explain from PJ and Goodwin required.
  7. Roos: "They’re so easy to score against"

    We desperately need a couple of highly skilled, fast line breakers who hammer the opposition when we go forward. Trouble is that we have no draft picks to get them Another problem is that most of our big fish are performing.. So who isn’t performing? Our middle range 6/10 players are the problem and have been forever. Either awful or hot and cold .(Harmes, Melksham, Hannan, Bugg, Hunt, ANB, Lewis , Vince, Stretch JKH, Peterson)plus duds like Johnston and 3 new draftees are raw but forgivable but that’s 15 big problems. The spin from the coaching panel is some had a good pre season, so they get a game, ( ballsjat in my opinion, as anyone who has ever played football knows after 3 contests who can play or not or what you are up against , no matter how much running they did pre season) . So where is our our Martin, Trelor, Dangerfield coming from? So how do we get back in the draft to get them? To me six of the above , plus maybe Brayshaw on the table. Today was all about the inability of our 6/10 ers. Clear them out!
  8. Changes v Richmond

    Disappointed in Lewis today. Saw no evidence of physical disturbance of his ex team mates. Very very disappointed in him.
  9. Demonland Player of the Year - Round 4

    Too many 6/10 footballers who rarely figure in these votes. Top sides don’t have too many 6/10 footballers.
  10. Changes v Richmond

    Outs Harmes ( How on earth did he get Norm Smiths number? Absolutely no tricks, slow and embarrassing) Melksham ( another trier without pace and skill set) Lewis ( looked liked he was helping for his old club) Bugg, midfield absolutely B grade. Oliver excluded.
  11. My 3 word player analysis V Hawthorn

    What were Jonesy stats for the last quarter?
  12. Max Gawn not in Top 8 Ruckmen according to The Age

    Used to be a good, accurate and unbiased paper once. Very sad demise

    Should be playing at Punt Road.
  14. Post Match Discussion - Round 3

    Lewis got the hard ones when he had to, slotted the calming, leadership goal, doesn’t mind the hard stuff at all. Sadly time is catching up. Been very useful for us, like Bernie. Lots to offer blokes like Bugg, Frizer and the young blokes. Hope he tickles a few Hawks up next as a reminder. Grateful he came to us. Shows he’s also smart.
