    Sole Captaincy?

    Of course it has to be handled 'delicately' AF and I'm sure it will be. I saw Jones slowing in the last couple of games - as he did last year. His day s are numbered and we will be looking to Angus Brayshaw for our next captain.

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    We used to say this about Doug Anthony if anyone remembers.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 20 Corey Maynard

    I hear he is hard at it but in the 2 games he has played I saw how his disposal was not too good. He got rag-dolled by Mummy in one of those games so that would stop anybody - he fixed Maxy up there one time too. So - he hasn't had a real chance to show us what he's got. If the coaches want to keep him that's good enough for me.

    2019 Jumper Numbers

    Mur doc - I like what you say there. Kelly? We'll have a place on our list for him. I'd even give him the number that is popular down here at Lorne which is #69. Players wear it with pride and attitude.

    The Day the Contract Died

    Exactly, do away with contracts. After Hawks, Tiges, Filth and Drug Cheats have filled their lists the other teams get what's left. There appears to be no solution when money defines the culture. $cully typifies the gun for hire.

    The Day the Contract Died

    What gets me is that under current AFL "Rules" it is OK to break a contract. The AFL have no moral fibre whatsoever and there are plenty of examples. For eg they would have condoned the Drug Cheats if WADA hadn't overruled them. It's anything goes in AFLWorld.

    Yeah, Definitely the egg and spoon race!! Missed opportunity by AFL.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    2 questions : Why were our players slipping over so often? Will McGovern(?) be reported on video review for the throat punch on Viney - the one the umpire saw but missed seeing?

    2019 best 22 and depth chart

    For mine Stretch is ahead of Kent who appears fragile. A bit like Hoges, he breaks down and it's one thing after the other. I'm ambivalent about keeping Jesse. He clogs up the forward line when Tommy is there so spends a lot of time keeping out of his way. Weed doesn't. So, can Jesse become a midfielder? He could play on the wing as was done with Tommy often, even drifting back to take Lever's job. He's not an inside mid and he doesn't succeed as a forward pocket/flank.

    18 Years Ago ...

    Yes Simmo was kneed in the throat by Michael Long whose defence was that "he sees things differently". Hard to comment on these days but the penalty he received was only 4 weeks and were counted into the pre-match series the following year. So, he got away with it.

    Rd 23: Opposition Watch vs GWS

    It appears that the Swans are getting players back to strengthen their list but look, hey, we want to beat their best combination and any oppo team's strongest side to prove ourselves over the coming weeks. And at this stage I now believe we can. Go Dees!

    Losing Jack Viney

    Disappointing missed set shot by the captain on Saturday night. But, I'm sorry to say, he just doesn't convince me that he can produce something special when needed. Nothing inspirational in the way he plays. As soon as Viney is back, Jones can be 'rested'. If he doesn't get back, next in line for the captaincy should be T Mac as current vc. Next year, of course. Then we'll be looking at the likes of Gus and Clarrie as the next leaders of our club.

    Mr Jones

    I'm glad this topic has been raised. I've watched him enough to recognise that he is not impacting games, not leading from the front and unable to hit the scoreboard. He looks slow and out of sorts; a little lost out there - I believe he has reached his use by date. Presents a small problem with no Viney to be captain though.
