When playing Richmond....

Play man on man, make them accountable.

When they take a mark inside fwd 50 they will always look to centre the ball to a teammate in a better position.

Asked Prendergast about him in 2009.  Told me he wasn’t talented enough to make it in the AFL.

How does one team (Eagles) get 33 frees and the opp (Port) get 13???  Wouldn't affect the result but it must have been a doozie of a 'home crowd advantage'.  33 vs 13 would have to be an all time record. 

Imagine how many more WCE would have had if Shuey had played the whole game!!

It would be interesting if the AFL published the 'frees given' stats for each week for each umpire!!  Given that everything else is up to public scrutiny I don't see why umpires are protected from being accountable.  Can't see it happening tho. 

The Western bias is a phenomena unknown in any other form of professional sport LH.  Yet the AFL sit back and are happy to allow it to continue year after year.

Maybe we should rename the AFL the ACCC.....both totally inept at protecting the end user!

St kilda will try and take a lot out of Norths win last night.. We have to be on our guard big time and be ready and switched on right from the start!.

Now there are a couple of novel thoughts ...... I wonder if Goodwin and the players have thought of that?  Could be really useful.

If we needed any reassurance than stats can be totally misleading at times here's a cracker.....

Tiges vs Freo Half Time

Clearances - Tigers 8 /  Freo 23

Centre Clearances 1 / 7  (Center clearances / Goals scored ...  usually has a high correlation)

Stoppage Clearances 7 / 17

Nearly triple the clearances in favour of Freo!

Score at half time 53 to 9 in favour of Richmond!

Richmond continue to buck the trend on large negative differentials in this area.  Has Hardwick implemented a significant change in the manner / style in which the game came now be played and won at the highest level in this area of play?

Not so much their supporters. They're like a cross between Deliverance and Hurstbridge.

Feel a bit sorry for Brisbane but what I noticed was the commentators carrying on about how tired the filth would be playing 3 games in 11 days. Okay we and richmond were 12 days but don't we rate a mention of it as well. The carp about the filth in the media is sickening.

Dumb decision in the end by Christensen. Glory over the % when they have Zorko and Rayner dominant in the final 5 at stoppages
