  1. That's my only issue with the suspension. IMo I thought when it happened he was in trouble and probably deserved a week for stupidity, but My years of watching footy tell me something similar or even slightly worse later in the year gets reviewed over and over to find how a fine is justified.
  2. You could argue the ball was in dispute in this instance and a contest, not handballed off and out of the contest
  3. First impression seeing it on Saturday was it was undisciplined and something they would look at to set a standard as they always do early in the season. Stupid act and I hope Goody has torn strips off him in private. As was the case with Lewis and Hogan in 2017, theres tough acts and theres going over the top costing your side That's what this was
  4. When the club first started, the only day the players were able to play was on Wednesday.
  5. I do remember him Wise tough call but Flash's ball use when he moved to the backline was a thing of beauty
  6. Neitz would be FF Viney replaces Jones in the middle and Yze goes to the pocket Reckon Flash would be better off HBF than Febes
  7. 87 Prelim, I was young enough to believe in fairytales and we were on such a roll. For the young Deelanders we had even more momentum than last season. Even 32 years later I'm still in disbelief watching that game. Closest we've been in my lifetime to the flag
  8. Yes, plenty on here particularly TGR have slated him from the day he came in. We have got a lot out of him and won a good few games off his experience in 2017 and 18. He has helped greatly with player development and now he's depth which all would have been what was intended when we signed him for 3 years My Round 1 side B. Jetta May Hibberd HB. Hore Frost Salem C. KK Oliver Harmes HF. ANB Tmac Trac F. Spargo Weid Melk/Hannan R. Gawn, Viney Brayshaw I/C. AVB, Fritsch, Jones, Stretch
  9. The Bog is long gone McQueen would be closed around 15 years. The redevelopment of Northbridge with apartments and new late night bars killed it off. Just sits there on Newcastle St vacant now.
  10. Can't beat experience OD It's what they call getting credits in the bank, good move before the season starts
  11. Apologies as I'm technically illiterate, but can a fellow Dlander run me through the process on blocking other users. There's one I need to put on ignore asap
  12. Depth is the big word and improving our flexibility against different opposition. 3 KPDs needed round 1 to free up Maxy so he won't have to play that floating defensive role. Port will have 3 of Dixon, Westhoff, Lycett, Marshall or Ryder playing forward at various times depending on which of those 5 are left out. They will also run hard all day so plenty of players needed to rotate through the middle B. Jetta May Frost HB. Salem Omac Hibberd C. Stretch Viney Fritsch HF. ANB Tmac Petracca F. Melk Weid Hannan R. Gawn, Oliver, Brayshaw I/C. AVB, Harmes, Spargo, Lewis/Jones Emg. Pruess, J.Smith, KK
  13. I hate to burst any bubbles but whilst it's not everything he didn't make State u/16s Academy this year. Taj Schofield son of Jarryd the best of the bunch who will head to SA next year and play with Woodville West Torrens
  14. Jones is a great warrior and a club legend but has his limitations. Petracca was only coming of a knee in 2016 and whilst Brayshaw showed promise he was nowhere near the level in 2016 he was this season and in 2017 getting his concussions sorted was a big concern. As I said with my side they are 2 years behind where we are all of Simpson Kruezer and Murphy are gone from my side. Cripps is the best mid in the comp, Kennedy is also a big bodied ball winner who not unlike Trac and Brayshaw just needs to get his body right. They have the spine which is the most difficult part to put together now in drafting Walsh and Stocker they are showing they are putting their midfield together. Put the 3 older players back in that side and consider them for next season not as a top 8 contender but not a side you would want to take lightly
  15. Carlton are 2 years behind us and have built very well, 2020 onwards they come into top 8 contention. Spine is all there 40 games more into their young nucleus and they'll pick up another ruckman and a few other pieces when Murphy Kruzear and Simpson retire to fill the holes. They have a good young list B. Jones Weitering Plowman HB. Docherty Marchbank ????? C. Cunningham Cripps Fisher HF. Mcgovern C.Curnow Dow F. Pet-Seton Mckay ????? R. ???, E.Curnow Walsh IC from Stocker, Mcreadie, Kerr, Settefield, Pickett
  16. You all missed the main one, playing kick to kick with your mates on the suburban grounds long after the game while your old man was knocking a few sherberts back in the clubrooms with his mates
  17. The amount of work Trac put in leading up to and during his draft year was huge. It wasn't a case of I'll get by on my natural talent. He reinvented himself, but now just finding out there are some who are just endurance freaks playing at the highest level
  18. The 2019 fixture for MFC will be attractive to any corporates tossing up sponsoring an AFL side
  19. He's to slow upstairs in terms of decision making and IMO just not cut for AFL. Good solid WAFL/VFL/SANFL footballer
  20. If we are good enough we make Top 4. I like the fixture Great free to air exposure Corporate dream MCG home games against 4 MCG powerhouses, 2 of our annual blockbusters. The flow on effect for sponsorship and attracting players is massive No room for complacency for the players with this fixture as the job needs to be on from the time we arrive back
  21. They remind me a lot of Port in the early 2000s, I expected them to make the 8 and steam roll teams on the fast track at Etihad, but felt come September when the tough hard contested footy was required they'd be found out. They lack midfield bulls IMO. On their day they are going to be hard to beat but still think beating them at the contest will be what a lot of sides set their gameplan around. With regard to Woosha he aint past it, he never had it. Fantastic motivator and a real come with me boys I'll run through brick walls for you type, but he is and has always been tactically inept
  22. Don't think they have to have the post Anzac games this year as there will be a minimum 8/9 day break for us and the Tigers, although they may look to a Friday night Pies v Tiger or Dees vs Bombers the post Anzac round. With us and Tigers playing on Anzac eve it would make more sense(which the AFL fixturing never uses) to have one of us and the Tigers playing Good Friday eve and one on Good Friday.
