If we got this inside 5 goals difference it'd be massive. Percentage as good as a win in 3 weeks.

At least next week (and remaining games) will be in a proper venue for AFL.

I just saw the bump from Mumford on Gawn, HOW THE ACTUAL F--- DID THE UMPIRE CALL PLAY ON!? YOU CHEATING DOG, HE LINED ONE OF OUR PLAYERS UP AND GOT HIM HIGH!!!! 

I know it won't happen but I want Goodwin to be fuming about it, Mumford should get at least 2 weeks for it but somehow with the umpire standing right there it gets called play on. 

Bloody disgusting from the umpire. 

Oh and I think finals are going to be really tricky now, dug ourselves a big hole with that loss last week and I can't see us digging ourselves out.

Even if we win the last 3 matches, which is probably unlikely, you arent going to win too many big games of footy against quality opposition by handing them an extra number at the stoppages ie., starting every match and seemingly every quarter with an 8 man (plus 2) defensive set up which means we must be at least one player down around immediate stoppages (prior to say one of those extras pushing up to make the stoppage).

Its a recipe for a losing first quarter result pretty much every match except against lessor light clubs who just aren't very good generally.  Yes you can sometimes chase down their lead and win but not often enough IMO.

Its an ineffective strategy and, other than being used to defend a lead late in a quarter or the match, should never be used.   While Goody continues to persist with this  strategy we will forever be chasing quality opposition leads at the end of a 1st quarter and/or half time in most cases and trying to chase them down from behind, which simply won't work 'often enough' to make us a successful club in the short to medium term.

Might be effective against lessor clubs but plays into the hands of the better ones.  They must love this ineffective (but effective for them) set up at the start of each quarter.

Common Goody throw this one away buddy.  Simply ain't working.  Please get numbers around the contest and stop giving quality mid fields a handy advantage that ensures they win the mid field battle most of the time!!

Blues could do us a huge favour here. Not that we deserve it.
