  1. Listening to Kane Cornes this morning from Perth he reckons the general support around town is in the Dees favour against the Doggies 80/20. If that translates even to 70/30 or 60/40 at the game then that’s a huge advantage on top of the fact we’ve already played some massive games at the same ground.
  2. This is what I would normally do throughout the year but the Grand Final is only broadcast on Ch 7 and 7 HD. Can these channels be paused?
  3. RADIO: Kingy and Jennings will be doing a full review and dissection of the two Dees v Dogs games from earlier this year on SEN at 11am.
  4. Merritt goes for a few weeks based on what Neal-Bullen got, right?
  5. Great day for it. Hope the boys are hungry, we could really do some damage today with a few players filling their boots and running into some form. Or it could easily be a tight struggle and turn into a stressful game for us all. Looking at Adelaide’s team I will be surprised if that happens as they have got holes all over the park, so we’d really need to be flat for that to happen.
  6. Good game so far. Happy if they both bash each other up.
  7. Agreed. As well as our team has been playing over the course of the season and where we sit on the ladder, we still have losses to the Crows, Pies and GWS plus have been pushed all the way by Essendon. All currently bottom 10 teams. Can anyone really be 100% confident we will win? I don’t feel that yet. We are $1.08 to beat Hawthorn $8. Can’t ever remember seeing our odds so short.
  8. Bit biased as he was one of my favorite Dees players but Dean Kent has had a good game and if they’d kicked straight he’d have been involved in 4 or 5 goals in just the last quarter alone.
  9. Can't stand it just like everyone else here. It's dropped in quality so much since I was a kid. The Channel 7 commentators are briefed to dumb down the game and not get too tactical to ensure the game feels accessible to wider audiences – to its detriment in my opinion. You don't hear American football commentators leaving out all the technical stuff or Formula 1 commentators. Watching the Tour de France is only really possible because of the commentary (in my opinoin). It adds multiple other layers on top of what is hopefully already an interesting game. Anyway, I watch the footy via the Kayo app on a Smart TV with the sound off and then listen to the SEN commentary via my iphone. It's really easy to sync them with Kayo as you can just pause for a second to let the radio catch up or fast forward when needed, etc. Replays I watch back with Ch 7 which by that point you can just laugh at the biases when they appear.
  10. If only we had a full forward to kick to.
  11. Have just returned home after breakfast out with the family. We were seated right near the whole Viney clan, including Jack and Todd - will take that as a good omen. Dees by 148.
  12. Midfield needs to be fixed. Can still win it from here if we adapt to the tactics they’re using.
  13. Soooo who’s making it to the game? (Would normally attend but unfortunately I’m 868km (according to Google Maps) too far away from being able to utilize the outside of the ground as part of my daily exercise for a run and sneak in a few glimpses while I listen to the radio broadcast)
  14. Took a few mins but I got there in the end. Thought Viney was playing. Stop getting my hopes up.
  15. Weird time for a game of footy – 4:35 (4:05 Adelaide time) on a Saturday avo. Basically a night game after half time as the sun sets at 5.15.
  16. Buddy looks to be cooked. He’s either playing injured or he’s just tipped over the edge.
  17. 2 x Free Adult reserve seat tickets for tonight. Have been away and totally forgot that I opted in to get tickets via our memberships so happy to give away to someone that hasn’t yet organized tickets for themselves. Seats are on Level 2 and each adult seat comes with a child seat (age up to 5) with it - but the child seat was free / included so doesn’t have to be utilized. Direct Message me on here if keen. Cheers
  18. Is Dean Kent not being selected? Thought he must be injured but he ain’t on the injury list. Not sure he would have helped, just keen to know.
  19. Must say there is a lot to like about Nik Cox. Feel like our Rosman is of a similar ilk albeit quite raw.
  20. Is it too early for us to start packing up and moving to Arden St? (Good digs and a train station coming soon - will be a mini CBD soon enough with a footy oval in the middle)
  21. Any thoughts / recommendations on taking a 2 year old? Not expecting to watch much of the game, might only last 20 minutes in our seat but taking the opportunity to jump on the train and get out of the house for an adventure. Got a decent seat on Level 2 as well.
  22. Lots of fast paced players on their team sheet. Seen it all happen before with young opposition sides cutting up our very single minded (see ball get ball) midfield, basically running rings around us on the outside while we’re still laboring behind back at the contest. Hope we’ve addressed that but our selections don’t look particularly quick for a Saturday midday 26 degree match in March. If our ball movement is precise and flowing then I think we can overcome it with direct footy over 4 quarters but I’m not at all confident. Hoping we learn a bit more about where we’re at as a ‘list’ tomorrow as I’ve got a fairly good idea but I don’t like it - so I’m hoping I’m proved wrong.
