Wallace Urges Adelaide to Target Lever

Recommended Posts

Yes, most certainly an ornament to the game. Used to get to the G early on game days to see him play in the Reserves team. Such developing class. Took the marks, kicked like no-one else you ever saw, handled the nasties on the field with aplomb and just before they hit our little rovers. Then into the firsts, went he. Did it all on a bigger stage to better effect. One of the greats. Did you see his TV interview with Mike Sheahan a year or two back? Pure honesty: 'I did what I did for Melbourne.'

Yes i did see it thanks to Youtube

i still think Grinter when i see a Demon wearing 14

I don't think there's anything wrong with what Wallace said.  

No, nothing wrong and he hardly urged them.

Just thought they should...

I hope they do focus on Lever, I've always found when this happens players can lose sight of the real objective.

Winning a game of footy.

I hope we don't get sucked into the BS and just go about our business.

No matter what Wallace said glorifying him having his jaw smashing into pieces is pathetic. 

I have always been appalled by the incident no matter the time or how footy was played. It was thuggery.

A dog act, not to be celebrated.

Was the catalyst for the afl to commence trial by video. 

Lever was ably backed up last week when carlton tried it on in the 3rd quarter. Esp by tmac and hibberd. 

Will the crows seriously risk antogonising viney and lewis? As viney said this week when asked about this and alice springs ".....I'm ready to rumble...."

Maintenance worker in a local Helium factory.......

Did he have that annoying squeak (beautifully described by Wadda We Sing) before or do we have Rod Grinter to thank for that?

I don't even remember it, although I'm more than old enough to.

Did Grinter hit him from behind? The pic appears that way.

 

I will always believe Grinter was going fairly for the ball and it went a bit pear shaped. 

Never thought there was nothing malicious in it.

Real nice message you're sending to kids Plough. 

 

Wallet's helping us.

Nothing would make us click together more, than the Crows targeting One of ours.   'terry' wants this.

 

Go ahead crow babies,,,,  Make my Day.

I hope they do...

Carlton tried the faux tough stuff last week and look where that got them.

exactly.

 

Nothing..... Nothing,,,,  galvanizes the D's more, than one of ours being attacked.

2005 we may have struggled,  but this group Will definately not.

Yeah Lever should be petrified with the Crow thugs.

Viney should go to their huddle pre game and see whos up for it.

He should go to their huddle pre game and tell them who better be up for it. :D

exactly, and it was how we played the game back then. it was the norm, give or take.

 

Captain blood made his name doing such things, as a clean up exercise.   you hit ours, we hit yours. 

You should ask about the O'Keefe's, down the beach way.   not averse to a scuffle or two.

 

The Wallace thing was Rodney's crudest.

It will be a good test for lever. The pressure will come and we will get to see how he responds. I’m backing him 👍

It would be the making of him, with us.   It would be 'the final straw', of his interstate divorce.

bring it on.

I agree .

Wallace was disgraceful that day and deserved retribution for what he did to Grinters wrist.

Yes we did thoroughly intimidated.  It was a disgrace, they way we went to water under provocation.  the hawks sides would have sttod tall and like a kangaroo would not have taken a backward step. We folded up the card table and left the venue.

Really the only one I recall to show some fight during the intimidation's, was Schwarta.

And in the game we barely fired a shot in anger.

Here are some stats for that game, set for tackles...  but check the other team stats.  We were getting pants'd, and we were also shown how to,  in tackles,  as well.

https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/fts_match_statistics?mid=1284&sby=6#t2

Some here think we were good, we weren't.  we were not a team to truly play for one another.  We were a team of talents who played as individuals mostly. And Most were soft in the physical stakes.  

Going through the list from this game, I would feel safe with only 9 players, to really have my back in any meaningful way.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

We lost what toughness we scrapped together in the 80's, sometime thru the mid 90's.  Became Hollywood pretenders, with heaps of wasted talent.

This continued right thru until Roosy started to bring back some pride in our contested football style.

We are on the way back to playing like Men, again,,,, but still aways to go. 

 

We are apprentices, atmo. imo.
