  1. According to Nick Smart in HS they are flying over on Saturday in a chartered VIrgin plane so no risk from public. Wonder if lack of crowds will help the debutants settle in and not get overawed. What a surreal way to start a career.
  2. I spoke to him at training during the 2018/19 pre season and told him no matter what happens in his career he'll always have this. I said many great players waited a whole career to play in a final and didn't even have a memory like this. He burst into the biggest grin and said thanks mate. I spoke to him again in Feb at Maroochydore when they were heading back. He was about to order something and I said I'd leave him in peace and he said no worries mate just let me order and I'm happy to have a chat. Couldn't have been nicer. Special guy. Really hope his career takes off again. He has plenty to offer on and off field. We could all be queuing up for some mental health tips in a month or two of isolation. I've just got through 3 months of self isolating with recovery from an Op so unfortunately already have experience. Can 't believe I'm about to go through it for the second time in six months. There are worse things to deal with. Demonland's going to take a hammering.
  3. Hope we are smart enough to dress players up with makeup to make them all look like they've got the virus and have them start coughing as they line up against their opponents. Oh! Hope this post is PC. This thing is stripping us from all our advantages this year we've got to claw something back. First easy draw gone. Now fitness advantage at end of quarters gone. Nasty. Wonder how much shorter 16 minute instead of 20 minute quarters plus time on will make the quarters.
  4. This is posted just now on afl.com.au There hasn't been anything from the Club for a while. For some reason Joel Smith hasn't been even listed on the injury list for weeks. Wonder what the story is and why he's never even listed. PLAYER INJURY ESTIMATED RETURN Harley Bennell Calf TBC Kade Chandler Wrist 1 week Kyle Dunkley Foot Test Mitch Hannan Groin TBC Kade Kolodjashnij Concussion TBC Harry Petty Groin TBC Braydon Preuss Knee 3-5 weeks Christian Salem Glandular fever Test Aaron vandenBerg Foot TBC Updated: Tuesday, March 17 Early prognosis The club has been optimistic Salem will be available for round one but a recent bout of glandular fever has him in doubt. Sam Weideman should be available after rolling his ankle in the second Marsh Community Series game. Max Gawn and Steven May have declared themselves starters after pre-season knee injuries. The long game continues for Bennell after another calf strain while Joel Smith has had an interrupted summer and mystery surrounds what's been troubling him following an infected foot over the New Year period. - Jennifer Phelan
  5. I had tickets and flights from Sydney.
  6. Oi! Bought flights from Syd there in Nov when fixture came out. Fought tooth and nail to get tickets. Oh well. We live in unprecedented times. Eagles won't cope without home ground feral supporters and umpires.

    If I remember correctly Melksham did this last season and it put him out for quite a while. Unfortunate injury.
  8. This view is also supported by the footage of Plapp praising Kossie for how well he had run off the ball to block the exit space.
  9. Agree but that doesn't stop the Club doing these sort of interviews during the week. There seems to be an epidemic of fear that someone is going to give something away. This interview was brilliant and informative and no danger to the club.
  10. Agree we were totally buggered by the time we met Eagles but don't forget they had a few key players missing in that round 22 win including Josh Kennedy and then Darling early in the first quarter so they had no forward line and we still very nearly lost. People are forgetting we'd hardly beaten a top 8 team until that round 22 win against injury depleted Eagles. It looks like a lot of the game style has been improved but I've thought for 4 years this is the missing piece to become a real contender.
  11. I love the concept of "roles". I think the concept seems to be very under utilised. I heard the coaches got away from it too much last year and were over complicating things. It seems to simplify the game for players. Roos was the master of it. I remember Marty Mattner saying that when Roos interviewed him to go to the Swans he said if you come this will be your role. He defined it for him before he even arrived and he said it was exactly what he did when he got there. It's great to see Goody focusing on it so clearly.
  12. Interesting you should mention that interview, I was discussing it with someone the other day. T Mac was asked two questions and I got more information out of his two answers about what went wrong last year, what's been done over the summer and what's going to happen going forward, than any other information from the Club, the To Hell and Back doco and every interview the Club has given all preseason. That was a great demonstration of how to give an interview and information that can be given without disclosing too much but giving supporters a lot more understanding and confidence for the season ahead.
  13. I feel your five year old's frustration. Looks like you should try listening to him. He could obviously teach you a thing or two about football.
  14. That's true to a point and certainly true against inferior opposition but we very nearly blew 3 out of 4 of those last games and the failure to capitalise on i50's had a lot to do with that. Just relying on the fact we got to a Prelim and ignoring the state of the opposition is frankly a bit pointless. This isn't just my opinion it was an internal view and was voiced on several occasions last year by Goodwin and others. I just hope and pray that part of the highly secret or alternatively so obvious it doesn't need to be spoken about game style includes fixing the i50's or it's going to be another very frustrating season.
