  1. Was at the game on Friday and we had them on the ropes for most of the game. Our defensive pressure was forcing West Coke to kick sideways most of the night. The last quarter we seemed to lose the defensive structures that was a mark of the game until then. It was disappointing to watch. Then realised that we had lost ANB, Salem and Smith in between halfway through the third and into the final siren with concussions. Some things I noticed about the game 1. We have improved, the loss aside, when West Coke had the ball we held up their run and pushed them sideways for most of the game it was awesome to watch. 2. When we connected through the corridor we were slicing through like butter, it reminded me of how we were playing late last season and we just need to see more. 3. Tom Mac's competitiveness and form can sometimes be a detriment. He would be better if he was less selfish and bring others into the game. 4. O Mac's spoiling is great I also love how he often flops down and squashes opposition players after a spoil don't know if it is intentional or just a happy byproduct. 5. Frosty has only one mode and that is fast and furious (I like it) he is some great form. 6. Hunt is becoming a good link up player 7. I have no idea what is going on with Gus it seems he is up and down in games, I have noticed this in other games its like he has lost his passion for the game. 8. Fritsch needs to be dropped he is out of form and needs to find some in the magoos 9. Oskar Baker played well for his debut 10. Marty Hore is a great pick up 11. Our back 6 are performing better then expected considering we have Jetta, Lever, May and Lewis out. 12. West Coke fans still suck and are the worst fans in the West and our boys kept them quiet for most of the game. I guess until they got enough alcohol in them to find their voice. 13. God I hate West Coast please oh please Melbourne based supporters in Rd 21 make sure you give them hell when they come to the MCG. Others will have different takes but that was mine.
  2. Like everyone I have been hurting this season, seeing the boys lose again and again. But I have moved through the cycle to the acceptance stage where I realise maybe just maybe I over estimated the boys. When you look at their form last season you realise we were not consistent. Sure we had a run of 6 games in the middle of the season but this was followed by 3 losses in a row. We didn't string 3 wins in row until we hit the finals where we got to 4 wins and then had a shocker in the prelim. So I still believe we can turn it around but we need to be more consistent. Sure it will take some luck but as some sage person once wrote..... So come on boys lets go!
  3. Well That Was Bad! I am going hold fire on the criticism this early in. I will wait for a body of work so I reckon about Rd 5 or Rd 6 I will have a sense of what the hell they are trying to do this season. So I, will see you all, round 5 or 6 hopefully with a better reaction then....Well That Was Bad!
  4. OMG this is seriously wacky stuff, we win against a top 4 side and we have supporter who questions some dodgy umpires calls and attributes them to the AFL wanting a good new story. Firstly dodgy umpire calls happen in most games Secondly why would the AFL want to compromise their own competition for the sake of a feel good narrrative. As the OP says it is their conspiracy theory. Like all conspiracy theories it is pretty poorly evidenced and has more conjecture that fact. IMO the OP should look into it more and provide other instances of this theory occurring in other games with other clubs, as it would make a great story. There are times in this great game where I have thought wow you just can’t write some of the drama, joy and tears that can happen in this competition. But I will admit sitting with Demon Army at Optus Stadium on Sunday my care factor for the fairness of umpires call paled into significance when the boys took it up to Weagles and I have little sympathy for them or for a view that they did not win the game fairly or without assitance. The way I see it the Weagles have form for imbalanced umpire calls so all fair in live and war. Go the Dees!
  5. Or we might not...it’s going to be fun to watch though. I am just rapped footy is back! Go Dees!
  6. 11.3.5 Contesting the Centre Bounce (a) The centre bounce or throw up of the football shall be contested by one nominated Player from each Team. The Player nominated to contest the centre bounce shall be positioned in their Team’s defensive half of the Playing Surface and with both feet within the 10-metre circle until they contest the bounce or until the Umpire calls ‘Play On’ due to an “offline bounce”. The Player may only enter the Team’s attacking half after the football touches the ground, in the act of bouncing, or leaves the field Umpire’s hand, in the act of being thrown up. The Player shall not be permitted to block an opponent’s approach to the contest. No other Player may enter the 10-metre circle until the football touches the ground, in the act of bouncing, or leaves the field Umpire’s hand, in the act of being thrown up. (b) Where a Player contravenes Law 11.3.5 (a), the field Umpire shall award a Free Kick to the Ruck on the opposing Team. Max could try and jump at the bounce each time as the free kicks were awarded when he stayed on the ground. This may be being interpreted as blocking. Apologies if this was posted earlier.
  7. I reckon playing the man has dropped off not only because we are winning but it is a seasonal event. It always used to ramp up during the Pre-Season training reports. Each training post is 90% vigorous argument/debate, 5% Banter and 5% actual training report. But it does make for some entertaining reading that's for sure.
  8. Was at the game tonight and god I am still buzzing. My voice is sore from belting out the Grand Old Flag! Best game I have seem them play live so far and all my children were there to see the boys topple West Coast. So nervous that last 5 minutes along with many supporters around us. But the euphoria after the siren sounded was amazing. Love the way the boys just kept at the Weagles all night, umps were atrocious i think it was something like 27 to 16 Frees for the home team. They had about 3-4 goals gifted to them by bad calls and non calls also, but who cares we won. So proud of the boys and the coaches tonight Go the Dees #RaiseHell
  9. I guess all in all the you could say every Dee had a bad first half and improved in the second half. O-Mac is frustrating to watch but some of the disposal of Lewis, Vince, Viney, Salem, Petracca during the match left alot to be desired.
  10. I keep hearing whispers about us being into Liam Ryan but as it's that time of year it's all needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
  11. First let me start by saying I don't think we need Rockliff and I hope we don't get him. But the video on Fox Mahoney says "I have no interest in Tom" which in itself could mean either the club has no interest in Rockliff or he Mahoney has no interest in him. I dint think he is coming but the video is not definitive. Just sayin!?
  12. Motlop may be a good pick up for the MFC. If our recruiting team decide to pick him up then I would back them in to get it right. I don't believe they make these decisions on a whim or get caught up in the emotion. I would expect them to maintain there non-negotiables for the type of players that will help the club achieve the ultimate. Personally I always think that a trade whisper like the one put on twitter can be used to get a player to a club but not necessarily the club named in the tweet.
  13. What is the trade value of Big Butts and what's their best position?
