I think you are right about the ball bouncing out of JVR's hands when marking, though I don't think it is the positioning. Hands are too stiff, no give when the ball is there. He has buckets for hands and I can see him developing those grabs, which he can take (training observations). Could be related to "not being loose as a goose" when playing. Give him some time, a few great games and he may be able to show us something. At least he is bringing it down for the front and centres, which appears to be be the instructions.  

Thank you for your answer in an intelligent way unlike some, what I mean is if you have your hands, I hope I can explain it right, they have their wrist cocked back but their hands are in a position catching a cricket ball so when the ball comes in it is hitting the palms of their hands, that it what I mean about position of the hands which causes that stiffness when the ball hits,  so on that point you are right, I think JVR has the ability to play at this level and he needs to play at a higher level for a long period.

While Bompt plays for the Bulldogs they'll always be a Premiership threat.  He is a champ for sure.

I assumed you meant uneven placement of the hands, so the ball hits them at different times.

I understand your description, and will look more closely at JVR's method next time.

Excellent start to the weekend. Tmrw I hope Sydney beat Geelong. Only because I hate Geelong that much.

Any weekends a good weekend when Geelong get done but at least we could go ahead of Sydney on the ladder if Geelong win, which the should given Sydney’s injuries list.

I have a sick sense of satisfaction knowing that Jackson has to play for this rabble 😂

We weren't treated respectfully in that deal and was upsetting.

But seeing last night's game , and Luke's inputs, I now have moved on and am sympathetic to him, knowing that last night he saw his future.

Its a shame really because inside an elite club/team (us) he would thrive (cue 2021) and money can't buy that feeling.

Just hope he's happy and content in other ways.

So both us and the Dogs cop the Perth-Adelaide double on a 6 day break.

One side comes out hungry, focused and wasn’t coming home without the 4 points. The other looked as flat as a pancake.

I was surprised when they flew all the way back to Melb after the Eagles game. Logic demanded they fly to  Adelaide on Monday morning set up camp and have a relaxing week with no more travel..Stupid decision to fly back and fly out again. If Bulldogs flew from ADL after r5 straight to Perth theyre smarter than we are.

Thats embarrassing.

We will find out on Monday if we're an elite team. Elite teams dont play like we have recently and will overwhelm the wounded tigers.

Lose and we're back with the pack.

Apparently our players wanted to be back home to family. They even took the red eye flight... 🤦🏻‍♂️

And they served up garbage, so I’m sure they’ve been reminded of that all week.

And add in the fact most of the players clearly have no issues with hubbing, per the 2021 finals series.

I think we clearly missed a trick and the Dogs were smart in reducing their hectic travel schedule as they had a couple of days in Adelaide post game and then flew to Perth at their leisure. Smart.

The Dogs were physically and mentally on. We were physically and mentally off.

Getting my footy fix in a few! Non-MFC, that is. Got a cut lunch, a compass (and my passport 😁) and I’m not too far from Coldstream. Rocking navy and white (feels weird) and I’ll have a choice of Coldstream FC headwear for today courtesy of one of the Fritta fellahs.

GO…….!!!
LOL I don’t even know their nickname 🤭

PS out here in the eastern burbs you don’t have to show your receipt in order to get the maccas staff to unlock the toilet door for you!!! 🤯

PPS: Go the Streamers!

 Carna  Coldy Cougars!

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
