  1. Worth watching. Less that 12 months ago. #Goodwincancoach.
  2. I think that this year will, in retrospect, be the making of this footy team. The humiliation and frustration of the club (players coaches and supporters) will cause a young talented list to grow the [censored] up and work hard and play mean smart and brutal footy. Our game style is finals style when we can get our best on the ground, and our coach and the FD will learn a lot from the adversity of this year, that will serve us well in years to come. As Winston Churchill once said “Victory is going from defeat to defeat without a loss of enthusiasm.”. Were learning and growing as a club team and coaching group this year. Be patient.
  3. As Winny once said “success consists of going from defeat to defeat without a loss of enthusiasm “... So you’re doing well Jumbo. 👍
  4. This explains a lot. For all of those waxing on about flawed game plans, coach errors, kicking skills, etc etc etc they ALL stem from the above statistic and the reality that all year we’ve been approx 9 best 22 players down against teams with far fewer of their top 22 out. Hence the results, hence the collapse of game style, confidence skills etc... The above stat gives me hope. The above stat tells me this phase is either a statistical abboration or an issue with our medical/conditioning. Both will be fixed. The above stat also tells me that it’s the Dons that are the real story in terms of form, game style, coach, as they are crap with an extra 5 top 22 players on the park each week, and only a game (&%) ahead of us.
  5. Undermanned, playing a polished top four team. got away with a modest defeat when it should have been far worse... Bring Salem, May, Lever, Jetta, Hibbard, Hannan, Melksham and Vandenberg back and we compete with the best again. While this season may be lost, all is not.
  6. Maybe, I’m not familiar with NRL. part of the issue is with high definition, slow motion replay, ump errors have become very clear and when they result in a score they are unfair. By using that tech to rectify this without stopping the flow of play, would lower the pressure in umpires and the upset when they clearly get it wrong.
  7. I think the game would benefit from a real time panel of third umpires with the power to nullify the benefit and reverse poor umpiring decisions. I.e. team scores a goal after a clear throw is missed has that score reduced based on real time decision of the third umpires (who have tv slow motion, etc) to adjudicate and decide as best they can. That way play can go on, with fairness somewhat addressed..?
  8. General question - whys Carey called the “Duck”? And what’s with the black eye???
  9. Love that some on here are trying to set up the story that if we lose its because Preuss wasn’t selected... so they can somehow feel vindicated when we lose. Really! We’ve been decimated with injuries and the coaching panel have developed and are deploying their best strategy to enable us to win... and it don’t include Pruess, and they (our coaches) know a lot more than any on here. and we’ll still probably lose, but have given it our best crack. some respect go Demons.
  10. Let’s see how it goes tonight... in Goody we trust.
  11. One swallow does not make a spring. Preuss would get killed by McGovern and co intercept marking, and offer little in terms of defensive pressure to limit the WC rebound.
  12. Perfect setup for a boil over. if our mids start connecting forward of centre and our backline doesn’t fall apart, we’ll be closer to the Weagles than most think. Go Demons!
  13. Noticed in the teams that they’ve moved Hunt back. Should be interesting
