  1. When confidence is down your kicking will be the first thing to suffer. I don’t think Hibbard for example needs to be the most accurate kick. He gets the ball takes off quickly, up the ground Melksham for example, puts body on his opponent enough to take off and give him a break, he heads to open space, Hibbard who has just gained 10m from a quick break kicks a low fast 60m pass into that open space. It doesn’t need to be a laser kick, Melksham has the time to gather if he doesn’t mark and our elite runners Tmac, ANB (next year Tomlinson and Langdon included) are there to provide support. A couple of goals in this way “chaos apparently” and the oppo defensive zone pushing up the ground is broken. Backs are made accountable, then Oliver, Viney, Brayshaw, Harmes have a little more space to waltz the ball through the centre in a series of quick handballs like we seen in 2018. We have a lot to work on but confidence will see the team improve out of site.
  2. Across all teams. 60% of new draftees only last 2 years on the list. Based on that I think Taylor is doing well and our development of players has improved immensely.
  3. Big, lanky, x basketballer. Got Collingwood within 5 points of 1😂😂 note: laughing at Collingwood
  4. I sometimes find myself shaking my head at posts and scroll back up to see who wrote them. Sometimes it’s Dr D and I always think how perfectly fitting the Neely avartar was😂
  5. And then round 20/21 which were our home games 37 000/31 000. Ouch. Had we been in finals contention...
  6. In laws went to hear Sheedy talk at a footy club night right around the time ASADA was investigating Essendon. It was bought up and Sheeds reply was “they will be fine, ASADA don’t have enough evidence.” That says it all I told them. Nothing about them being fine cause they did nothing wrong. It was basically an admission of guilt.
  7. No one can possibly judge this a good or bad contract when you have no idea what’s in the contract other than the length of it. The only facts we have; -4 year contract. -“Was a no brainer, growing up a Melbourne supporter” James Harmes quote -obviously was never going anywhere -would be the 1 in a million person who turns up to work and says “just living the dream” and actually means it.
  8. “The Demons are hopeful former Docker Harley Bennell will train with them with a view to being placed on the rookie list as he makes solid progress in his return from calf issues that kept him sidelined at Fremantle. Surgery has given him a chance to recuperate as he builds slowly towards fitness and while the Demons will not be signing him as a delisted free agent they would like him to train with them in the hope of resurrecting their career.“
  9. Having a kid makes most people reassess life. He also has Jetta to go do programs with. Bennell would be great with kids and struggling teenagers. He would be worth his money on that alone. I do expect a norm smith out of him thou.
  10. Agree that he needs to improve the tank. It does require good balance though to maintain some of his size as his strength is a real asset. Those stats could also be seen as; In some games this year he was our only dangerous looking forward. Shut down Trac, shut down Melbourne. I’m hoping a fit and firing TMac, Melksham, Fritta, will free him up.
  11. Definitely! On some decent coin too. Can see him and Melksham kicking 30+ goals each next year taking some pressure off Trac and allowing him to slot 30+.
  12. I’m hoping he could become a good lock in forward. He has a bit of pace so if he can build his tank and stick his tackles, him and Hunt could make some defenders very nervous next year.
  13. 1. Essendon have no paperwork so can’t prove anything. 2. Doesn’t change the 40+ times players lied when being tested about having injections. dirty lying cheats.
