maybe time for Lewis to have a rest for one week and at least 2 others will be rested. 

 

Might be why Vince had the week off, as Lewis was planned to rest the week after the Darwin game and they want Bernie fresh.

I assumed Smith in the forward line was in response to the way Fremantle occupied our forward line, rather than our idea per se. It wasn’t going to be OMac, Frost, Hibberd or Jetta, so he’s th logical next choice. I can’t think of any other reason for it because he definitely did not look a natural forward.

Smith went forward because he had hurt his hip. May be in doubt for next week. Goody said it was great that he could play out they game.

Thats why TMac went back and Smith went forward.

Its just  minutes and seconds.

I don't think is time on ground altho that looks most likely. Each qtr was around 24/25 mins so it has Oliver at 103:13. He would have had at least 3-5 mins off each qtr given the conditions you would think....

JKH needs another go been impressive to see one final time what he may have??

Possibly, but has he been given enough chances over the years?  I think the FD have made up their mind on him as I don't recall JKH even being named as an emergency this year.  

He did play well on the weekend but I struggle to see a way for him to play senior footy for us again.

Neal Bullen is a shocking set shot in front of goal. If last nights dreadful inaccuracy costs us again many on this site will be Livid!

I have just watched The replay and thought that didn’t look good at all

Don't understand why the Darwin  game doesn't start at 4:30, less humid and only a few deg difference, would be far better spectacle.

We made 5 changes after the Darwin game last year. Vince got suspended and Kent hurt his shoulder, but we then dropped three more players (Pedersen, Wagner and J Smith), bringing largely running players (Watts, Tyson, Viney, Salem, Trengove). 

I won't be surprised if we see three changes this week.

To be fair, we'd just been rolled by the Crows quite easily, so it wasn't as much of a surprise to see that many changes.  Take out the injuries and it's three changes, which you could theoretically see happening next weekend although I'm not convinced we'll make more than one or two.

Agreed, we're obviously coming off a different and better performance this year compared to last.

ta.

any further thoughts on PA? as it is the main column and the column used for ranking.

EDIT: could it be Pressure Acts (just heard the term used on radio)

 You got most.  It is pressure acts.

 

I was trying to illustrate ANBs worth without possessions.  He runs hard both ways, and this places defensive pressure on the opponents. He does this better than anyone and it is our weakness. I know he fluffs shots at goal but his defensive running is underrated around here.

Why do you say that?  He only missed two set shots, straight in front, both about 15 meters out, that any 5 year old would kick.

Certainly by me it is underrated in his case.

lex Neal-Bullen 9 5 14 3 0 1 1 4 1 2 68

 

Also seems to be underrated by the AFL points grading system as well, placing him as one of our worst players for the game.

Fritsch out? Are you on drugs? He is so good ... an absolute find.

Agree with Smith + Lewis out.

Agree with someone else's reference to ANB as a momentum killer. Dropped marks, turnovers, missed shots for goals at crucial times.

No, very tired.

Sorry bing... I copied and pasted some players from another post last night whilst tired, to save typing,,,, and removed the players that I think should stay in. 

I removed the players who should remain in the side (not rested)..  I missed deleting Fritsch's name from that group.    He's a ripper.

 

What I'm getting at with that list,  is to rest players after Darwin,  and to bring in those with fresh legs,,, like Vince, Baker, Bugg, for the Doggies game;,, as we rest others.

Not sure why he pulled out, only he knows but it wasn’t for personal protection as far as I can see. Very little personal danger in putting your arm out to shepherd as I vaguely remember. He has played a lot of footy, and knows a bit about the game perhaps he chose to stay on the outside for the receive? We have been complaining about our lack of outside receivers haven’t we?

I was thinking along those lines. We have recently had too many players going in for a contest rather than trusting your team mate and waiting for the receive. It might have been a brain fade because he his usually happy for a contest. The problem is that a shepherd would have definitely helped his mate win the contest.

I see it that he was trusting trac to be clean and to give back once both players had committed towards trac.
