  1. I think it was Jenkins, who then handballed to Lynch for the goal. The true crime was Fritsch not impacting the marking contest enough then not keeping up after Ellis-Yollmen, allowing the overlap and inside 50, then Omac for completely misreading the play and being turned out nearly 10m by Jenkins. JKH weirdly backed up into Jenkins when in front and should have used his pace. Took an easy option for himself. I dont blame the umpires, and think it was the right call. JKH didnt take the game on and a bigger body came over him. Play on. 3 of our worst pressure players involved.
  2. Watched just after half time. Still baffled at how professional athletes earning an average of $310,000 pa missed easy opportunities. Behinds in H2: Weideman x2 Gawn x2 Harmes x1 T. Smith x1 Jones x1 Hunt x1 With this season now a write off, the club needs to be more ruthless on who gets game time. I.e. if they're not going to be part of a permiership team, dont play them. Garlett, OMac and JKH.
  3. +414 games experienc net... amazing to think Petty, Lockhart and Wagner total only 11. Hopefully going to get some much needed leadership and direction.
  4. That may be the case mate, but you've got to work with what you've got. Frost isnt the smartest footballer, but takes the game on and is fast... more importantly got us 4 points!!
  5. 2 goals against us directly from players handballing to above the target's head. Professional athletes and they cant do the basics. Skills are appalling.
  6. Great summary. What concerns me are the potential implications of this year. The introduction of free agency and two expansion clubs during our rebuild meant securing young talent got immensely harder, and the talent we took the risk on, spent the time training, and finally those few that succeeded, was farmed and rewarded to the more successful clubs - whilst we got their leftovers. I finally thought we were out of this period at the start of last year with Lever nominating us, and our finals finish. Being bottom of the ladder is going to make a lot of players question their future at the club, and with blood in the water the other clubs are going to start to circle. I really dont think the club has it in it to establish a winning and professional culture without a significant change to current practices. The fact Goodwin hasnt even watched the preliminary replay is damming to their ability to learn from their mistakes and change.
  7. If cohesion, skills and the game plan are the main issues, it seems counter-intuitive to send everyone on a 4 day break. I would have thought going back to basics and working on inside 50 effeciency would be a good start.
  8. I respect the way Geelong and Collingwood control the ball. More than willing so switch it back or back again if they dont like their options inside 50 or that link into deep forward. Means they tire out the opposition defence, maintain possession and greater chance of scoring with a more meaningful kick inside 50 once they find a target. Antithetical to what we do. Ps, great summary.
  9. Any chance guaranteed Grand Final tickets are refundable and/or tax deductable?... asking for a mate
  10. I miss Vanders as well... good pressure and for a couple of goals
  11. Happy with Max arou d the ground tonight against Essendon. Played very well. However, would like to see Preuss play to take a bit of pressure off Max and also TMac. Hogan was still good for 40 goals and the #1 defender. No reason why Preuss cant be like Mason Cox and ease pressure in the ruck, forward and kick out target from defence.
  12. Im so disappointed. It seems to me that the game has passed us by. - too many players going for 1 ball (an issue last year) - not enough spreading (an issue last year) - mass inside 50s which clearly is a quality vs. quantity issue - poor forward pressure - zone defence when the game's 6v6v6 format advantages 1on1 - poor kicks from defence to 40m when clubs are taking advantage of new rules to 60m The stock is there, but the strategy isnt. Really poor coaching. We've lost a prelim, 2 JLTs and 3 2019 games... thats 6 in a row. What have we done to change? Never thought we'd be 3 rounds in and #18.
  13. Goodwin able to call Roos for some free ManShakes?
