NON-MFC: Round 05



Recommended Posts

Whenever I think of Bevo I think of the different halftime instructions Goodwin and Bevo gave to their players.
Goodwins message was clear and concise whereas Beveridge was a disjointed old school babble.

"He's fine. For some reason, he lost his footing and stumbled, but he's fine. He's been looked after and there's no concussion or anything like that," Beveridge said of Liberatore.

Thanks so much for posting that Fork. 

Takes one's mind away from Thursday night and shows what we are capable of.

PS Bevo totally uninspiring. Does he have some goat photos?

If there was a ‘tweaked ankle’ that caused it, usually you grab at the injury site straight away after falling. And he also doesn’t try to take weight off either ankle before he falls. 
 

But then again, he also stops his fall with his hands, which shows he’s not so out of it he can’t protect himself.

How anyone can get stuck into Bevo as a coach is beyond me. Even a shallow dive into the stats say he's been a supurb coach. A deep drive into the stats says he's one of the best.

Despite my comment about his GF address being disjointed babble I do think this is fair.
He might be eccentric but he can't be a mug.
His results are far better than that.

Its starting to get some attention now, but their list outside of their top half dozen or so is only average.

With all due respect to these players, it's no wonder they're not a certified top 8 team when you have Williams, Baker, Khamis, O'Donnell, Vandermeer, Johannisan, Duryea playing regularly with a young Sanders and Gallagher.

Macrae is out of form and probably past his best and Daniels not preferred in the side and has significant limitations, his skills by foot have deserted him over recent years and are inconsistent at best. Smith obviously out injured doesn't help their shallow midfield beyond their core 3.

Bevos been there a while now and done quite well with the list he has in my opinion. It will be interesting to see if the heat ramps up on him though. They're trapped in that mid-tier level currently.

Anyone know anything about that type of tackle from Stringer? Is it dangerous and does it cause damage to lungs or rib cage?

Watched it again after posting it.
Dunno what it is, no matter how may times I see it, right toward the end of the 3rd Qtr my eyes start watering.
Strange phenomenon I thought might go away but seems to be lingering.
Also makes me feel happy and warm so that's a plus.

Harmes' pass to Fritter to turn the tide gave me goose bumps. Always does.

Goodwin is an excellent communicator. Clear, smart and has an obvious emotional bond with the group

There will be a mass exodus from the Dogs if they keep losing this year. 
This is a Club who lost a home game to Meth Coke last year  

I understand this, but no team would end up with both ‘Marra and Bont, least of all us.

he’s been there so long and they still have a terrible defence. He is good on game day but lacks other aspects of being an overall good coach.

I didn’t say we would get both, but we should chase them hard.

Agree. Beveridge is full of BS.

Libba doesn’t stumble or lose his footing.  He simply loses his senses and falls. Have to applaud Parish for checking in him and raising his hand.  There is the game and there is humanity.  Parish 👏👏👏 Bevo 🥔 🥔🥔

GWS are good to watch but gees why players cannot kick a drop set shots instead of snapping within the 45 degree arc does my head in.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
