  1. This is my concern from observing his actions over the year. Clearly you feel he has motivated the team over the year so could you help me understand the following: 1. Our poor first quarters where half the team doesn’t show up 2. Our performance against the bottom 4 teams To me this is a motivation / mindset issue that he has not addressed.
  2. Did you watch our Round 23 match?
  3. Overall I am happy with Lever although we should have kept our resolve for a 1st and 2nd rounder. Watts trade was a terrible decision and terrible outcome for the club. A rookie decision by a rookie coach. Watts value to our club is more than his onfield performance. He brought loyalty and the kids loved him. What worries me is that Goodwin is not a motivator of men and couldn’t get the best out of Watts. I don’t buy the salary cap relief excuse given we are paying some of his salary for the next 2 years. Balic doesn’t excite me but hopefully I will eat humble pie on this one. What we needed in this trade period was a couple of outside mids with pace and kicking skills. I stand by my assessment in was a terrible trade week.
  4. Terrible trade week for us. I am still filthy at the Watts trade for a packet of chips.

    Daylight robbery. What a crap outcome
  6. Trade rumours

    If Hogan goes it should start with 2017 1st round and Neale. Balic and Tavener are steak knives in this deal.
  7. Farewell Jack Watts

    I am extremely disappointed and angry about this decision. My 5 year old son has the number 4 on the back of his jumper as would a lot of kids of his age bracket. My concern is that is a rookie mistake by a rookie coach which will destroy the culture that Roos established. For those happy about this move I wonder how you will feel when Watts makes the difference at a Geelong or a Sydney that gets them to a GF. Watts is entering his best years and will stand up in finals. He was much better than some of our bulls in the final round. I love this club and I hope that sanity prevails.

    100% agree. There were lots of baffling selections or non-selections throughout the year.

    AFL is the ultimate high performance environment and we have shown improvement on last year so Goodwin gets a pass from me. However I expect that some individuals in the football department are made accountable for our finish and lack of ability to get up for 1st quarters. Something is still seriously wrong with our DNA. Goodwin and the match committee needs to review their team selection as some of their selections this year have been baffling. He clearly likes making an example of Watts yet allows other senior players have a free pass. Finally we need a kicking coach and recruit some players that can execute this basic requirement. Absolutely livid at our coaches and players performance at he end of the season.

    Well I'm gutted
  11. Round 23 Non MFC Games

    Umpires are getting involved. Absolute crap
  12. Round 23 Non MFC Games

    Score line reflects effort. Adelaide are on top of the ladder for a reason and they should still win comfortably. I cannot see the Eagles maintaining that effort for the next 3 quarters.
  13. Round 23 Non MFC Games

    Crows look a class above. Eagles are playing with effort but I cannot see them getting up
  14. Round 23 Non MFC Games

    Back to 14. Wouldnlove for the drug cheats to choke and miss finals
  15. GAMEDAY - Round 23

    Can't wait for this match. This hopefully will be our first belting which gives us the confidence to go deep into finals. Jones, Watts and Petracca to be best in ground. Hogan to kick 4 with Jeffy with 3.
