No I can't explain them. 

But then again, I can't explain why Hurley got equal most with Oliver. 

Do you have an opinion? Or prefer to throw in with whatever the coaches say?

 

Hurley was clearly BoG at half time imo. 7 intercept marks I think and the main reason we couldnt score

Trac ran him aorund in the 2nd half but I can see why he polled 6.

Tyson was good, playing more outside - 20 effective possessions, 9 marks, 6 score involvements, 9 inside 50s. some shanks stopped him having a great day but he was solid and always gave us an option/outlet

from the VFL report, Waggers looks a good chance to come straight in.

drop Milkshake or JK Howler and release Vince/Lewis to the mid

Tyson ran hard up and down the wing all day, found heaps of space and wasn't nearly as bad as people are saying. His kicking was poor but FFS, the kicking in the game was as bad as any game this year. Why single him out?

Melksham was poor for the 3rd consecutive game. He is on thin ice but nobody is challenging for his spot at the moment.

Wagner hasn't played enough minutes in the VFL to justify selection. Being BOG is a great sign though and I suspect he will be in for Melksham after one more week.

Absolute mumbo jumbo bs.

This highlights a big ( for mine ) problem with footy today. This incessant breakdown into non meaningful elements. 

So much abouts stats are farcical in so much as the metric has either become subjective and therefore non transferable, nor truly comparable or they are half stats. By this i sggest a disposal is actually not effective if it doesnt actually benefit the play ( as opposed left one player and simply got to another, or simply disposed of without penalty. These only half tell a story.

So ...a pressure act ?

If its about an intent...and not a result....a player might as well be just sneering as his opponent for all the good it will do ?

A pressure act ...is that like half a tackle ?  Is it like trying to corral a player but not really ?

Like contesting a mark but completely in wrong spot...but cobtested !! Sorta not quite.

What defines a successful pressure act from a nearly/not-quite ?

I'll tell you one pressure act JKH cant do currently...thats Scoeboard Pressure. Now that you CAN measure very clearly !!

A pressure act is when you are forced to agree with posts on Demonland so as not to be perceived as having no knowledge of footy, the perception being arrived at by the self appointed experts on Demonland

Have just finished watching the last half of the replay and after all the comments on Tyson I paid special attention to his disposal.

Starting to understand the opinion of some.

Not one kick in the second half was to the advantage of an MFC player. Other than the kicks favouring the opposition they were at best neutral and more often than not were high in the air. They covered distance but in the main did not hurt the opposition. On a few occasions the recipients bought the ball to ground and hard bullocking resulted in a goal.

In his defence he got the ball which is more than some players can claim credit for but he seems to lack the poise, time or speed to break clear and hit up his fellow players. Also the scramble forward kick a la the Dogs is a valued play these days.

Maxy aside are we at full strength if Hogan plays? Seems amazing considering our recent injury and suspension issues but a good result.

Strikes me as not 100% but better (again ) than any likely replacement.

Aside from the obvious (but possibly overrated) exception of Gawn, this is our best possible team IMO.

I might be in a minority here but Melksham brings much needed urgency and impacts contests a lot. I think people don't see what he and JKH were bringing defensively for us on the weekend. He also has some toe. I keep hearing Wagner is quick but I didn't see a lot of pace when he played. Melksham is not as bad as people think.

The jury is out on whether he is best 22 even now DJ. I would have Kent in before him.

Slightly incorrect.

I believe he kicked a very nice long pass to the advantage of Petracca. Who marked and goaled.

He definitely is not quick. But he shows more composure than Melksham and judges the ball better in the air. 

Melksham is an OK player until he has to do anything other than punch the football.

We brought in Frost and Hibberd after 1 VFL game.

Wouldn't surprise if Wagner came in based on that.

missed that ... the commentators didn't call him and on the tablet it was difficult to pick up the player

I did notice that he received a handball in space

Well lets hear it for the "refusal to be pressured act", which a few of us on here are adept at.

No he won't. Because you're judging him based on what he's getting wrong. The FD are judging him on what he's getting right.
