  1. Often I reckon this is our weakness with quite a few players. In Geelong's halcyon days post 2007 they had an Elite Decision Making coach - David Wheadon. A brilliant thinker of the game and imparter of knowledge. When discussing the 2011 premiership he told me how important this issue was to that win, including Harry Taylor's marking at CHB. Everyone in the media raved about Tom Hawkins, but as David noted Hawkins was playing on an opponent on 1 leg (Chris tarrant I think??). Its the team decision strength across the filed that stood out over the day. The Lewis appointment can only be upside in this for the Dees. And an elite standard-setter and giant footy brain inside the tent.
  2. Well said and you could add how tight the club seems in regards to no leaking and backgrounding . Its up to Goody and the team now but they have been given the platform off season they need to succeed
  3. I enjoy listening to cornes passion but he needs a headline weekly for media relevancy. His language and sentence structure is apalling and he states something hasn't worked when its 20% into the plan.
  4. Good question. When teams like GC and Brisbane play there its never a sellout. And given the capacity is still only 35K, where are all those fans. It should be full. Expensive seats are sold out, but not GA. The 2019 Kardinia Park attendances were as follows against teams noted below: Melb`27K GWS 28K Eagles 28K Dogs 31K Swans 29K Crows 28K Saints 24K North 21K OFFICIAL capacity: 36,000 Don't get me wrong I love the idea of an old fashioned suburban - type team and Geelong is the last of those so good luck to them. Just pointing out how it works down here and internally the club should be asking whats wrong with our supporters? In terms of local fan participation, these numbers are a disgrace after the huge spend at the grounbd Club survives on having some of the largest return poker machines venues, which are really bad news in Geelong also, however I think

  6. Same here. I live there and refuse to attend kardinia park. Its a deadset elitist club where you need a bank loan to reserve a decent seat. Vast majority of townsfolk can't afford to attend and the grounds development has sucked much needed grant capital funds from more important building upgrades. Its got me stuffed why the locals follow. Having daid that there's been huge influx of new residents. And most are bemused by the parochialism of older locals. They say its a community facilitu also but try booking the facilities.
  7. That's not as stupid as it sounds. The new grandstands could be on that secret govt. Cladding list. Can Demonland please commence preparing an FOI submission along these lines.?
  8. I'm very happy with this draw in regards to opponents. Only play 1 top 8 team twice. The pies Play 3 bottom teams twice . Suns saints dockers. The champion data view of 3rd easiest draw is a reasonable call. Basic view i know and many unknowns but face value could be good of team performs that is.
  9. Weĺ put.. Accepted opinion now commonly noted is cats are a great home and away side. But draw favours then get them found out in finals.
  10. Well summed up but I would add it can be seen as an 8 point game for MFC if they win, given most teams will lose over there. If its a loss just the usual 4 points effect.
  11. Good point but i don't think they are in the frame. Geelong swans or us possibly.
  12. he said last night on the 7 news interview that he couldn't think of anything better than playing on "... the G..." Its us I reckon.
  13. I like your approach. BUT 3.20 in Perth in late March.
  14. Confirmation from whom? Based on article in Age 30 minutes ago (or in fact a strategic leak from AFL to keep horse racing off the back page), by my reading there is still one game needed forr the G. Being either bombers or MFC. Otherwise, its west Coast at Perth, GC away or Port Adelaaide away.
  15. They don't. But good analysts will underpin and assist with strategy and opposition analysis greatly. Another good move and will aid the improvement of the list and individual performance if taken heed of by Goody.. The day the analyst pulls on the tracksuit and takes goal kicking practice is the day Brian Taylor has lost his mind and done a career change. As an Ex-plumber would be great at maths after working out all those sewer line gradients to make [censored] flow correct direction.
