    GAMEDAY - Round 12

    Two-way running and spreading on offence! FFS! That's where Collingwood have destroyed us all game. That and clearances. Geez I hope we can get over these scum bags

    Wines Unsure of Contract

    Wines is exactly what we, or any club, "needs" as he's one of the best contested ball and clearance players in the competition. He alongside Oliver, Viney, and Gawn should allow us to consistently be the #1 team in these areas. This also allows the coaching staff to further exploit the dual-position capabilities of Petracca and Jones (between on-ball and forward), as well as Brayshaw and Lewis (on-ball and wing or half-back), which would synergistically affect our midfield dynamic, thus, making it harder to stop. As for "outside" players I think we have it covered. For example: Salem, Fritsch, and Melksham are wonderfully efficient going inside 50, while the respective footy-smarts and gut-running of Brayshaw and ANB have them racking up the "second touch" uncontested possessions. Sure, I'd take Gaff if he's available (although there is currently too much hype surrounding him), but not over Wines.

    What the Fritsch

    He's a fantastic user of the footy that's for sure. I'm often confident when he's going for a contested mark or kicking the ball. Great find MFC.

    GAMEDAY - Round 10

    Again Salem [censored] himself, third time today.

    GAMEDAY - Round 10

    Shocking kick by Smith, but that's the second time today Salem has shrugged a contest.

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Word is Mark Neeld is available and looking for a slight change in role. Regarding the "reality bus" he aims to implement "elite" standards both on and off the football field.

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    I don't know enough, or any names, that could be raised as candidates. I only hope the club explores beyond its four walls to find the best person for the job. As for Mahoney, I've questioned his negotiation skills in the past (regarding trade week) and would prefer someone with more experience. However, if PJ believes he can meet and exceed his expectations then so be it. We've all seen first hand what a poor CEO can do. This decision will crucially impact the club's ability to succeed in the future. I just hope the person helps us become a sustainable powerhouse like we once were many many years ago.

    Tom Lynch (Adelaide)

    I'd rather pass on Adelaide's Lynch. Signing T.McDonald should be much higher on the priority list. Not only do I think he's the better player but it's also beneficial for club culture. If the club sees a need to target an additional tall forward, out of fear Hogan may not re-sign next year, then do it properly and go for Gold Coast's Tom Lynch.

    GAMEDAY - Round 9

    Tim Smith looks like a rabbit in head lights.

    GAMEDAY - Round 9

    I missed what happened with that quarter time Carlton goal. It looks to me Gawn got a hand to a poor kick from the point of the mark. Can someone please explain what happened and why he was given a 50m penalty?

    Clarry vs Cripps

    Both sensational players with bright futures ahead. I could rave on about Clarry but I'd be letting my bias side take over. My heart backs Clarry, however, I believe Cripps will have himself a good game as he has a point to prove after Lewis cracked his jaw last time they met (he certainly eluded to it in a recent interview with Garry Lyon).

    The Curnow Brothers at the Tribunal

    I wasn't sure what to think of the Hawkins incident. At first, I figured a fine or one-match ban. I believe the outcome was just. When I saw May contact the umpire, immediately I thought fine. It was foolish of him but unlike Hawkins it wasn't done in an aggressive or defensive manner. Conversely, I see Ed Curnow's incident to be the same if not worse than Hawkins as he pushed the umpire in the chest, albeit with little force, out of frustration. I expect him to get one-week. I haven't seen Charlie Curnow's incident yet.

    My 3 word player analysis V Gold Coast

    I made sure I watched Tyson today. Don't see how Tyson can be called a momentum killer or turnover merchant. From what I noticed he only once had a clanger and held up the momentum, respectively. By half time he had the highest disposal efficiency (just above 90% by memory). On the contrary there was Harmes, who if it were Tyson you'd be saying "prolific but wasteful" as he got a lot but many of the possessions had little impact and/or missed targets.
