    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Stop rabbiting on about Jessie’s considerable issues he’s had to deal with. He’s a man. He needs to deal with it. perosnally, he has been riding on the reputation of his ‘potential’ for too long. I believe we have won by trading him out. He won’t be the generational player he was billed as and we get a strong key back to add to our side.

    A Chat with Jack Fitzpatrick (Part One)

    That’s a fantastic interview mate! Very well done

    Sam Weideman

    'very good' is a stretch. hes been ok but hasnt been busting the door down. Not even close to the top bracket of VFL forwards, let alone an AFL talent.

    As usual on this site, posters will see what they want to because the reality stinks. weidemann is a bust. KPF take a while but the good ones show potential in the meantime and any astute footy observer can see it. Highlighting 6 tackles for a KPF is really clutching for straws. Half of us could go out and lay tackles. move him on

    Has AFL become too hard to officiate

    the age of the interchange being using tactically was the beginning of the end for Australian rules football. It will be slow but the game will die. The sport at the highest level is unwatchable now. The only reason a game is entertaining is if its close with a minute to go. There are no more highlights. cheap goals over the back are boring. Its become basketball on a big field with a rolling maul making it as boring as batshit. I don't want to see fumbling players getting tackled non stop. I want to see one on one contests, high marking, precision foot skills to hard leading forwards. AFL is gone fellas.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    32 players inside a 50m arc is not a sport I enjoy watching. That isn't what footy should be. Im even struggling to enjoy Melbourne games now. 36 seagulls fighting over a bag of hot chips - a lucky flick out the back to a seagull on the outside who then flies off with it. exciting until that seagull drops the chip and the other 35 catch up to him and started squabbling over it again. Is anyone even noticing how the quanitity of reasonable highlights in any given game of footy has fallen off a cliff. Nothing happens anymore. fumble, fumble, fumble, handpass(throw), fumble, fumble, fumble, fumble, quick handpass(throw) fumble fumble, fumble, fumble, fumble, arm pinned, free kick. kick, fumble, fumble , fumble, fumble, fumble, quick handpass(throw) , snap shot , goal. …….. return to centre, rinse and repeat.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Im sorry but this sport is quickly turning in to an absolute farce. I have no interest in watching neutral games anymore. A decade ago I couldn't miss them. They are officiating to rules that don't actually exist and everything is being made up on the fly. Its getting ludicrous. Reduce congestion which will reduce the need for so many farcical rules being tacked on to farcical rules. Anyone who cant see that this great sport of ours is spiralling out of control and relatively quickly, is completely deluded.

    NRL smashing AFL in TV ratings

    its not that the talent pool is too small. Its not. Our population is nearing 25 million people. its not the skill level that makes poor games. Its the state of the game. 36 players chasing a footy like a flock of seagulls fighting over a bag of chips is not appealing television for all but the most die hard footy fans. look how few highlights there are now. its very hard to put an exciting highlights reel together from a round of footy these days because apart from a rolling maul and squabble of a mass of players, nothing happens! I used to love watching most games each week. I cant sit through footy as a natural observer any more. Its garbage. I love watching melbourne games but even then i feel a bit hollow. We are winning games but its not great footy. Its 10 blokes in a 5 sq m area squabbling over shittty handballs and fumbles until someone finally gets free for a cheap one over the back. The game is simply not appealing anymore. Its grown in to a massive snore fest, then add on the relentless wave of weekly issues and changing and bending of prexisting rules to counter previous rule changes. Its snowballing in to a non marketable sport. Years ago my friends and aquaintances overseas used to love watching the game. the speccys and the great goals. I can assure you in its current format very very few first time observers of the game on Tv are being wowed like they used to. ITs become so sterile. Its all about structures and 2 on 1s and zones. Remember the days when in the lead up to a game the streets, pubs and trams used to full of chat about up coming matchups. the history that developed between carey/jakovich, fletcher/longmire. whos going to fondly remember all those 3 on 1 contests of today in the future?? it all changed in 2005. 2004 there were an average of 34 rotations a game. It jumped to 60 in a year and then malthouse took it to a new level. This facilitated a game style of up and back running that was previously not possible. I cant stand the argument of the players not being able to withstand a game of restricted rotations. they would adapt just as they did going the other way. maybe its not possible to go back but the argument of 70s/80s footy is a furphy. we dont have to go back that far. footy in the brisbane lions, essendon PA flag eras was epic. Most players and young fans are too young to really remember it but anyone who does remember the closing years of positional play remembers a game where THE FOOTY moved quickly. Now the footy moves very slowly but the players move quickly. The footy used to fly up one wing, transition out of defence and fly down the other wing. Now it gets bogged down in a pocket for minutes until finally a free kick is pulled out someones arsse just to get the ball moving. Lets get rotations back to 8 a quarter. The argument of the clubs then only recruiting athletes is a furphy as well. An arms race will then develop to recruit the most talent footballing athletes. The game plan will be developed to move the footy quickly so that skilled footballers can compete against unskilled runners. The solution is on every youtube clip or DVD of early 2000's pre malthous, pre Roos football.

    GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    why is anyone surprised. yet again, supporters with no ability to look at footy in an objective manner lulled in to a false sense of achievement over a couple of half arsed, less than convincing wins over two poor footy teams

    Be Patient with Lever

    we paid overs for a Fist. Lever really is just one Fist roving the back line , unaccountable , looking to fist the footy over the boundary line. over hyped. hes ours now, so we' will have to deal with it. But lets remember this as we watch all the first round talent for the next two draft periods go to the other clubs. We shouldve learnt by now that single big name recruits dont change fortunes of footy clubs

    De Ja Vu 2010

    One of our more intelligent posters I assume. reading my post and extracting from that , that I'm basing this on our games so far this year just shows how poor your comprehension skills are mate. Talk about missing the point. I played in the ruck for 9 years - think I might have a fair understanding on how much Gawns loss affects us. But that's totally irrelevant to my point about this demons group think bandwagon Ive witnessed. rd 1 - gawn played . That won papered over a glaring deficiency in our list. We play aggressive footy but our skill level is well below many other teams.
