  1. Past hour
  2. He's a career coach mate, of course he does.
  3. I like Stretch and have given him time, but he is just too damn slow moving the ball.
  4. Wrong, this is the highlight 👇 https://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/melbourne-victoria-hit-by-heavy-rain/news-story/73c71cd03c7a2c8e8001aec9317361aa
  5. You know the season is going badly ehen this is the highlight of the week.
  6. Yep. Hogan averaging 15 disposals, 1 tackle and less than a goal per game this year. Not the messiah they thought he was going to be
  7. What do we need most, forward, speedy mid... when does the draft start?
  8. Max has cleared away to lead by 25 points. PLAYER VOTES 1 Max Gawn 106 2 Clayton Oliver 81 3 Christian Salem 72 4 James Harmes 70 5 Angus Brayshaw 57 6 Marty Hore 41 7 Sam Frost 40 8 Jake Melksham 31 9 Nathan Jones 29 10 Jayden Hunt 28 11 Jack Viney 25 12 Michael Hibberd 10 13 Jay Lockhart 6 14 Oskar Baker 5 14 Christian Petracca 5 16 Bayley Fritsch 4 16 Tom McDoanld 4 16 Braydon Preuss 4 16 Josh Wagner 4 20 Corey Wagner 3 21 Alex Neal-Bullen 2 22 Neville Jetta 1 22 Oscar McDonald 1 22 Billy Stretch 1
  9. Agree on firts three points. Not sure i agree with the last Before he got injured last year he was starting to play really well and much more fluent and instinctive. But seems so hesitant now. Needs to release the ball more quickly and take the game on and break some lines. Those issues were on display again yesterday, though there was couple of occasions where he did kick quickly. On improvement i think it is dependent on his mindset. If he he can free up a bit and have the confidence to attack then he could well improve. And to be honest that is the coaching staff's job to help him get his mind right. I would have dropped him after WC but was ok yesterday and with our injuries gets his chance to make a case to stay in the idea. I hope he takes the chance as i think the talent is there.
  10. did I hear right on the radio yesterday that this draft is only for 19 year olds?
  11. If he wants another 80 hour a week job
  12. That's the template for all coach and politician leaving speeches... He will spend some time for a few months and be back as senior coach somewhere after this season is over for some club if not before.
  13. Brad Scott said over the weekend he wanted to spend more time with his wife and family. Does that mean he wants another Senior Coaching job? I would say not for a while, unless he is spinning rubbish, because he already has a gig lined up. He would be a great assistant if possible, i get the feeling that Goodwin is struggling big time. Tactically and Stress levels.
  14. Like it but would play Weid in lieu of Pruess. Also like Brayshaw as ruck rover. Can't understand why they play him on wing when he nearly won a Brownlow last year playing in the guts.
  15. While I don't know him Balme struck me as the perfect director of football. Smart, able to communicate and good management skills. Scott's persona as portrayed in the media is perhaps a little more tunnel visioned than I would have wanted for the role but there is no doubt that the right person in the role provides the glue. The role of the CEO is to stay out of the football department unless systemic issues require intervention. The one role that is becoming less defined as the years go by is that of head coach.
  16. Yep. I think his natural game has been coached out of him, with him being told he is not to turnover the ball at all costs and that has stopped him playing on like he did in his first few games. He was a run and carry player who is now stop start. I think he has improvement in him.
  17. I heard we had 5 players with less than 15 games on the park.
  18. We must draft a player that can come in and play straight away.. we could have 7-8 vacancies on the list next year, that is enough. Lets draft a player that can inject some skill in to this horrible team. Find the the player with the best foot skills and draft him.
  19. He actually averaged 32 per year and didn't want to play for us. Your point being?
  20. In the words of Bob Dylan, "I don't believe you...", I won't continue with what Bob said next but Hibberd has not been generally terrible this year. He did struggle early but was definitely on the up at the time of injury I don't blame the club for Jetta's absence May is not fat and lazy Lever is no more overrated on these boards than by the All Australian selectors Hannon was not dropped several times last year KK is not all but done
  21. Today
  22. So this year is clearly done, if it wasn't already, But some players that are just not up to it and will never make it in my opinion: The No good: Petty - No Instinct, nothing stands out about him Stretch - Panics with ball in hand, not quick.. no redeeming features Oscar - he is just not very good Corey wagner - tries hard - but thats it. add to these players right on the line of no good: T Smith - i like him, but he cant get a run at it. Charlie Spargo - Whats his specialty? needs to kick 2 plus a game i reckon Jay Lockhart - hard to say really Josh wagner - i think he is ok.. but just ok. add theses to players horrendously out of form: Tom McDonald - all year but we have to play him.. bit is it time to rest him Angus Brayshaw - complete and utter breakdown of what he was and more importantly how we use him. Nathan Jones - He is done. its brutal, but he is. Bailey Fritsch - Plays AFLX, and somehow has never been the same. Jeff Garlett - i dont expect him to be the bloke who hits players hard, but he is struggling and the forward line at the moment is a shambles. So that's 13 players from yesterdays game that just can't and are not playing AFL standard footy. What hope do we have. Also at some stage it would have been nice to see Goodwin put Oliver at FF and clear the 50 out. Also hats happened to the Genius that was Craig Jennings? i mean surely the wraps he got last year means he shouldn't be immune to criticism.. if our players were bad yesterday, they were supported bu a shocking day in the coaches box.. a situation that has been evident a lot this year.
