Redleg (4/10)



  1. Thought Viney's attitude looked poor all day tbh. Gave Harmes a spray when he went for the torp on the half time siren, but in the first quarter he completely burnt Trac.
  2. Good thing we used a heap of picks the last few years..... I don't think draft picks are that important to us at the moment. We need to continue to bolster our list with ready made players and add to the depth to have multiple cracks at the flag.
  3. That area has been booming though, so probably won't be a massive difference soon. I'm pretty sure Barwon Heads area went up 20-30% in the last 12 months.
  4. There are measures in place now though. The team must then take the player nominated with their next pick based on the points system, less a discount I believe of 25%. It is much fairer than the old system that saw Geelong pick up blokes like Hawkins, Scarlett and Ablett with picks in the 40's and 50's. Every team has benefited at different times with the F/S rule, remember getting Viney with a pick in the 20's? I love the F/S rule and want it to continue as it is what makes our game unique. Not a huge fan of the acadmies though, however I do see the purpose in not football states like Queensland and NSW.
  5. After Goody's presser and comments about Pickett's pressure numbers I recall my earlier statement. Still believe we need Brown in ASAP if he is now fit, as we need to sort this forward line out before finals and even before the last few weeks when we play Dogs and Cats. Brown in and Sparrow out
  6. Given we will likely lose a bit of experience this year, I'd like to see the club seek out a few older players happy to take a pay cut for a crack at a flag. Likely outs: Jones, Jetta, Baker, vandenBerg, Nietschke, Bradtke & Smith. Potential options: Seedsman, Sidebottom, Breust, Billings, Gunston plus I'm sure there are more. Also look to add Maynard and a few draftees and we are set for another crack in 2022.
  7. Definitely don't think Jordon will be better than Jackson long term, but I do think he is having a more consistent season for 2021.
  8. I'm thinking we give Pickett another week off and then bring him back fresh for the Port game. He looked really tired against the Bombers and we want him cherry ripe come September. In: Ben Brown & Bedford Out: Sparrow (stiff) & Pickett
  9. I don't mean this disrepectfully, but hopefully never. He is there for depth only and will play if Gawn or another back goes down....
  10. I think we should give Quinton Narkle a crack. Hopefully take advantage of Geelong's desire to top up with 30+ year olds and nab a guy who otherwise would be in their best 22. Has shown good signs at times and maybe a change of scenery would help.
  11. I'd be happy with Weed out and Viney in. I think we will spank the Bombers on Saturday, and I'm usually a pessimistic supporter....
  12. If it gets weeks for this I'll be very disappointed. We can't be suspending players for playing the ball, even if there is an accidental injury. I heard Gerard and Robbo suggesting that he may have attacked the ball with too much speed..... are they f'ing serious? Imagine if the AFL bring in a ruling that you can't run too fast at the ball.... how ridiculous. Even in less contact sport like basketball people get injured, it is just a part of any sport unforutnately.
  13. I remember watching him v the Kangas VFL side and I'm fairly sure I posted about the way he was playing from behind, rather than leading at the ball. Now he is playing at a much higher level and that type of play just doesn't work. He needs to work on his running and leading patterns and work hard to get space on his opponent.
  14. Gawn should play mainly behind the ball and only be used up forward as an impact player every now and then. he is much better at reading and positioning himself in the backline than the forward line.
  15. Not really team change related, but does anyone know what the outcome of Bowey’s injury was? hopefully it isn’t too serious.
