  1. Well well well. Someone, in the opinion business, gets it wrong. Let's call him names, let's vent and let's not recognize that in footy we've all been horribly wrong at times. He had an opinion. He didn't hurt anyone but now we'll start vilifying him shall we??
  2. I think people are reading too much into Brown ahead of Weid. Weid probably didn't train for a week or so with his ankle. They want a very fit team for today and so Brown gets the nod. Brown wasn't picked ahead of Weid for the Hawks game and Weid did okay in that game, he actually brings the ball to the ground better than Brown who is more lead and mark. Weid also is a good chop out ruck. I think Brown was picked because he was fitter, not better.
  3. I'll be happy to watch anyone...
  4. Interesting photos, Smith and Petty wearing there numbers kit. Those in rehab usually don't wear numbers. But it's Casey so who knows. Again it doesn't mean much but no Weid, Bedford and Vanders.
  5. Nothing happening at Gosch’s this morning.
  6. Maynard, Stretch and JKH didn't add depth because they weren't really up to AFL standard with is why they are no longer on any list. We have more depth now as Petracca is a genuine mid, Jordan and Sparrow are better now than last year and are as good or better than Maynard, Stretch and JKH. As for wings I've been impressed with Baker both at training and at NM. He's got some real attributes for a winger. The other is Bedford who I think could play there. He has the tank and he has speed, skills and is competitive. Most importantly he now has some belief.
  7. Very sad to see that those who bring so much to the site totally ignored - the forgotten track watchers!
  8. Sorry Diamond but this sort of self pity and woe is me post really gets up my goat. 1987 12wins and a preliminary final 1988 13 wins and GF 1989 14 wins 1990 16 wins 1991 13 wins 1992 7 wins 1993 10 wins 1994 12 wins and a preliminary 1995 - 1997 a wipe out 1998 14 wins and PF 2000 14 wins GF 2002 12 wins 2004 14 wins 2005 12 wins 2006 13.5 wins and then it turned to crap which corresponsed to a period of terrible governance. So yes, from 2007 to now we bee awful but from 1987 to 2006 we were pretty consistent and did plenty right, unless of course you want to play the victim and say we "didn't win a flag". We played finals in 15 of those 20 years. That's pretty consistent. I get so sick of people wanting to feel sorry for themselves.
  9. With Lockhart there was no indication of a pec, he pointed to his bicep, nothing more. Hannan is running quite freely but I've seen players do the same rehab routine as him and do it for 4 or 5 weeks (Tomlinson) so it's really hard to tell when he'll be back.
  10. I went today and don't have time for a full report nor is it needed given the excellent coverage by others. I can only reiterate the comments on Harley who is fast becoming my favourite player. His skills are exquisite and today he thought he'd show off taking one hand marks - about 6 in a row. His kicking is fantastic, he never fumbles and his vision excellent. Fingers and toes crossed. The really good thing is he seems to be at peace with everything. He's clearly well liked and he's just following the instructions of the rehab staff to the letter. He's quiet but seems to be enjoying it. The only concern today was the non appearance of Salem and the injury to Lockhart. He went to tackle Vanders and immediately went off holding his arm. It was his bicep which was hurting, not a shoulder or elbow so hopefully it's just a corky. He was in everything in match sims and did the injury late. It may well be nothing. As reported Dunkley, Petty, Hannan, Smith, Preuss and Chandler made up rehab. Chandler is still protecting his wrist, Smith did some gentle kicking on his right at one stage but nothing serious, Preuss looks fit and ran without a bandage or limp but was wearing a protective shin guard but did no rucking, Hannan is looking good and Dunkley ran very well. May and Gawn did all the running and every drill so I expect them both to play Friday. It was a surprisingly long session today, about 2 hours and the standard was good and everyone was upbeat.
  11. Bedford was second only to ANB in the 3K time trails and not by all that far. Fitness isn't an issue I don't think.
  12. I was impressed with him too George. For mine I thought Spargo isn't getting the love he should, he was very good today and smart. I have commented on Bedford in my track reports and it was great to see him put it into play today, he too was very good. I thought Baker, who hasn't had much of a preseason, showed some good toe today and Lockhart is AFL standard. Sparrow and Jordan worked hard, Rivers was very impressive and Fritsch and Gus worked into the game well. Brown spoilt his game with some terrible set shot kicking and the Wagners were solid. But the takeout for me the last two games is how well we've run out games, it really has been impressive. Last year we looked slow and tired all season but today we bounced. Great to see. With Gawn, May, Hannan and hopefully Smith not far away we look in pretty good shape.
  13. You still owe me a dinner don’t you? Frost on a wing........
  14. Only because he wasn't training. We'll see.
  15. It's possible Wise and I'm hoping we'll get a few reports on the Casey game to tell us. I doubt Fritsch will play tomorrow and he certainly won't play today.
