  1. These blokes are paid to kick the football for a living and surrounded by others who are paid to coach them. The first consideration in solving any problem is identifying it. If a couple of hundred of us armchair critics on Demonland can see it, why can’t the “professionals”? As an aside, Christian still has that self-anointed superstar persona yet to be knocked out of him and FCS keep him away from red cordial.
  2. The leaderboard sadly highlights the form of TMac and Petracca. A total of 6 votes between them which is equal to Jay Lockhart’s total and 20 behind Marty Hore, both first players.
  3. Errrr... it’s “You’re”, “Hawthorn” and “we’re”. Guess English grammar isn’t taught in Grade 4 in Panama? Maybe get mum to help.
  4. Watching Cats v Dogs. Tuohy just kicked in from FB. Didn’t play on. OOB without being touched. Nobody even near it .....THROW IN! That sums up the competency of umpiring at the moment.
  5. Point taken but the “higher standards” don’t necessarily have to be from his team mates. Players can rise to the standards set by the opposition also.
  6. I played footy for a club (many years ago) and there was a guy in the twos who played in the BP. He was a reasonable, steady footballer who was never outstanding. He'd played in the twos for about 2 years when we realised that we were going to have a late "out" in the senior game one Saturday so put him on the bench. Well, he came on late in the first quarter off a half back flank and was very, very good. He never left the senior side after that and even ran 4th in the comp B & F a few years later. The point I am trying to make is that there are some players who play better when the players around them and the standards of the game are higher. They rise to that level when the opportunity arises. I reckon Oskar may be one of those.
  7. For me, it seems to have merely taken some of a coaches tactical options right away and replaced those with an awful, game changing he-who-must-be-obeyed type law. I fail to see how it has improved the game and from my perspective, has made the game less interesting. This seems to be a classic case of changing something because those that have the power to do so, can. It hasn’t improved the game one iota.
  8. Ya think? Thanks for that golden snippet of what is clearly highly confidential insider information......
  9. Spine: Hale Pace Morecambe Wise B. Hill then we could justify calling our team a bloody joke.
  10. I tend to agree unfortunately. I have a feeling this might end badly for us. The words of an old boss of mine keep ringing in my ears: "nobody ever gets caught first time".
  11. Apparent minor offence, likely common assault. If the offender has been released following interview pending a summons that tells me:that he has no criminal history for similar offences (or he would have been bailed). He will receive a good behaviour bond. This type of behaviour happens numerous times over any given weekend right around the country. Fools turn into “Beeroes” after a gutful of grog and want to punch somebody else. If that outrages you, I’d like to see the response to something serious like murder, rape, armed robbery, child sex offences, drug importation and multiple fatality vehicle collisions. Save the “outrage” for the victims of the low life’s that commit or cause those incidents.
  12. Putting Oscar in with ANB in the team leaves us a man short. They only have half a football brain each.
  13. If Brown was at Collingwood/Giants/Geelong he'd be near on kicking 100 goals a season. As Petraccattack said, we don't have anyone, (except Salem) who can deliver it as he requires it - out in front whilst on the lead. We actually HAVE competent forwards but they are either completely bereft of confidence, still nursing pre-season niggles or both. Garbage incoming disposal hasn't helped either. Petracca for example, has the skill set to be our DeGoey but lacks the commitment, confidence and focus to carry out that role.
