  1. Changes v Richmond

    Might see you there old dee
  2. Missed Opportunity - ANZAC Eve Crowd

    Agree Dr G this game and QB are our chance (along with continued improvement) to be a destination club. I'm heading over for this and can't wait
  3. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    Seriously every team knows how every team plays and all go in to counter it. This can change your own game plan dramatically meaning your players may struggle to adjust. It's one thing to know how to try and counter an opposition it's another to execute it. That thought process would be beyond many on here
  4. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    and those of us around in the late 80s remember the Toiges rattling tins to stay afloat after overpaying players in the early to mid 80s. They stank it up for a long time between 1983 and 1994
  5. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Fagan at the Hawks please review history and not what Clarkson is today. From 04 to the start of 07 there was a lot of Hawks people still unsure about him. I recall one ex player saying how confused the players were with his tactics but they felt once they understood it and knew exactly what each players job was and etarted to tryst the structures put in place they would flourish. Mark Thompson was nearly out the door at the end of 2006 when the up and coming Cats had a doen year. It was the leadership group and the players who kept him from the scrapheap. Roll back to 2016 and Dimmer was in the same boat. What we have in common with those sides is this. Our 08 to 12 rebuild failed ee started again and are just starting to see that now but there will be bumps along the way. The Cats started to hit their straps in 04 and 05 with the father son picks and drafted players picked up in 99 and 01 like Scarlett Enright Johnson Chapman Bartel Ablett Rooke and Kelly forming the nucleus of that side who flourished once they started getting to 60/80 + games The Hawks likewise from 07 on wards (barring 09) getting the 01 and 04 drafted players to that 60/80 + game mark. Hodge Mitchell Lewis Roughie Ellis Birchall Buddy formed that core group. The Tigers won a flag off the back of 4 stars drafted between 07 and 10 Riewoldt Rance Martin and Cotchin. It took them a fair while to rise. So just be patient and don't get caught up in that we've been waiting 54 years stuff. Is Goodwin the man? Who knows but building a sustainable list takes a lot of time
  6. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    without checking going out on a limb Demnis Pagan, Adam Simpson, Chris Scott, Sheedy, The Reverand, Neil Craig, Brenton Sanderson, Don Pyke, Rocket Eade, Terry Wallace, Ross Lyon and David Parkin off the top of my head. Doesn't always mean it's a long term sign
  7. Backline Setup and Structure

    Agree a lot with you and Steve especially favour adopting the deeper press over going man on man because we lack pace in our backline. No dramatic overhaul needed but pulling the team press back and defending as a team deep should allow the forward line to open up for Hoges and Garlett. Hannan Kent and Nibblers run along with Petraccas developing smarts may benefit from this. A bit more composure with our ball use and not leaving our defensive 50 wide open would certainly stem those poor runs of back to back goals we've been seeing

  9. Demonland Player of the Year - Round 4

    6.Oliver wasn't as clean as usual but gave his all for 4 quarters and one who tackled 5. Salem like Clarrie had a crack and used it well (one of a few) 4. Jones was given a job and did it 3. Omac did a decent job on Roughie who got a couple late 2. Gawn won the contest with [censored] boy and was let down by our poor handling at the drop of the ball 1. Hogan we were that bad after the first quarter Im going that far back was dominant early
  10. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    Yep how good is it my boys played footy yesterday and this morning, took them to the Ammos yesterday while the misses had me time so she's now taken the boys off to the shops and left me with the tv, some Cricketers Arms and the dog
  11. Werribee Tigers v Casey Scorpions - VFL Round 2

    and we can always count on a negative comment from Clint. Just remind me who won the VFL last year
  12. ANZAC EVE Game and Tickets

    Can't wait for this
  13. Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

    Impossible to predict this one 2 sides not yet hitting their straps both started against the Cats getting the ball in quick and high to expose the Cats defense. Hawks delivery was much better than ours. If we get on top in the middle and get the ball in quick but either to space or a positive 1 on 1 we can lock it in and capitalise on forward pressure. If our delivery inside 50m or on the quick break is poor they will win with their ball use and quicks catching us out on the rebound. Clarko will look to isolate Roughie on Oscar. I dont expect all of Stratton Frawley Sicily and O'Brien down back. O'Brien may play forward to prevent Lever zoning off on Gunstan and Roughie. If they drop one of the tall defenders Mcevoy will try and drift forward to prevent Max doingthe same
  14. 2018 Membership Thread

    ANZAC Eve and QB are massive for us for sponsorship and as a destination club moving forward. Any player considering returning to Victoria or moving clubs would seriously give consideration to the opportunity to play regularly at the G and in 2 blockbusters a season playing in front of 85-90+k on ANZAC Eve and 65-75k on QB. Make finals and put together a couple of good finals campaigns and we set ourselves right up
  15. Coburg Lions v Casey Scorpions - VFL Round 1

    Maybe Cotchin. I think Shiels goes to Clarrie this week and Gus may come in for the run with role
