  1. I'm not saying you're wrong about Weid, he deserved a month to find some form. As did Ben Brown. I saw Mitch Brown as you're in. If he's in, then let's see him for 2-3 weeks. I would prefer BB as a deep forward and Tmac leading up, but just my opinion.
  2. Dr D thought BB should've been dropped after his first game. Not sure you're going to get a balanced discussion there. It's Weideboy now is it? Weren't you celebrating the dropping of Ben Brown for a forward line with Weideman in it v Adelaide, and telling the forum how you were two weeks ahead of everyone by saying BB should've been dropped after 1 game? ? And lack of ability to mark? Are you now completely ignoring the marks he took against Sydney rising up an arm's length above any defender? When did Weideman do that? Anyway, it turns out you were actually a month behind on Weideman mate! But hey, we had to give him a month's run at it right... Can't drop him after one game.
  3. Not sure we can read too much into that early form Geelong game. We obviously played very well and beat them systematically. But they'll be a different proposition with Jeremy Cameron. They're the in form team of the comp and building. It would be a ripper of a prelim. I think I'm more afraid of them than the Tigers at this stage. Toss of the coin game. Our defense would really have to have their best match of the season to nullify them forward of centre, when they get going on their fast ball moving momentum swings.
  4. When's it coming out on dvd?
  5. That show is the offcuts from Crunch time, which is a far better Revamped sat morning listen now with Leppitsch, Whately.. sometimes Healy, Jordan Lewis, Huddo.... And not Derm, Robbo, King etc ?
  6. Cant wait to see us turn the Pies into the crumbs.
  7. I just want to say that It's so god damn surreal that opponents are not firing a 2nd shot... I'm expecting replies after replies, but we just overrun them until the end. It's so foreign.
  8. But the alternative is a player you're outperforming in the VFL/praccies, getting selected as sub ahead of you, just because they've already debuted and you haven't? It's not ideal to debut as sub, but is not playing seniors an improvement?
  9. These are all valid points, ... But what if having Bowey as the sub is because he's our next best performed, the most ideal utility roleplayer to cover various positions, the fittest, the best decision maker, the most skilled and therefore the best pick of the bunch to help us get over the line, in the event of an injury? Purely from a tactical point of view. I mean the coaching dept has already confirmed you are good enough to make it to the highest level if you are picked ahead of 22 or so other players on the list, in just your first year. And tbh id rather see what he can do at this stage, than have Baker as sub. If our best 22 is so hard to get into for another month, it makes sense to put the 23rd best player as sub, even if he's not used for a month, just in the event that he's ready to have an better impact on the game, than others who you're saying we should make subs purely because they've already debuted? It's not a compelling argument. The kids a first round pick, I'm sure he has enough belief in himself and is chomping at the bit to get on the field and make an impact in any capacity. Maybe stepping up, when another goes down, is also a point of pride. If he doesn't come on, we all know it wasn't his first game. It's merely an intangible statistical anomaly that the AFL just hasn't fixed yet. He will know his first game will be when he actually gets on the field via a sub or as listed in 22. But having said all that, your points about family and the first game being major are all perfectly fine reasons to just debut him in the 22 instead when the time comes. I don't know, depends on the player really. As i said, maybe he really wants to debut as 23rd man waiting to help out if someone is injured. We're a 10/1 team chock full of superstars and players all performing their role, you'd kill to just be cutting oranges for them at this stage. ?‍♂️
  10. Maybe A&F meant Weid for Collingwoods 2nd & Maynard
  11. If that music is the soundtrack to his game, then the opposition are in deep [censored]. All jokes aside, he looks like he has the Jeremy mcgovern chesty build
  12. Was that Dunn's last possession or match in a demon jumper? I recall Roos dragging him and then he played in the VFL for the rest of the season.
  13. They all live in Yarraville now, sippin lates and watching foreign films in their heritage cinema when they're not posting on Bulldog forums!
  14. Great interview, especially when he revealed the spray he gave Oliver at half time for their midfielders having 20pos at half time and Oliver taking that personally and responding.
  15. They actually resemble us in 2018. Defense is based on Midfield/offence preventing defence having to do anything lol
  16. SEN discussing tagging Bont, and mentioning Harmes. I just think he's not big, good or not smart enough. Which had me thinking could Luke Jackson be the ideal body type, athletic ability and high IQ for this type of tagging role? Perhaps not today, but in the future.. the 200cm mid/ruck that could not just smother But Dominate a Bont/fyfe type. Just a thought.
  17. If it rains and they have to keep it open, will the quick sand favor our game style over the Dogs?
  18. Smart move by the FD. Weid will either dominate a mediocre WB kpd or realise he's better off re-signing on backup depth wages and avoiding a rabid fan base that wants their big money's worth. Win Win... I think? ?
  19. The Mighty Mickleham Bulldogs.
  20. MFCPTSD has replaced MFCSS, if we're still discussing what-ifs the following evening.
  21. Panned yup. I was called stupid and told that I know nothing about footy from @don't make me angry for simply saying we start slowly and we need to keep them out of the contest early. Or it will be s big danger game. Gee what a [censored] day where I have to take pleasure in knowing that bloke was the one "that would have to eat his words" as he said to me, not from the result but the fact the Adelaide are a dangerous team on their home deck. Thanks for spoiling my morning AND afternoon.
  22. We're slow starters, so if they do get s jump on us and the crowd gets pumped up, they could have a 4-5 goal lead if we're off the ball. It would only take another burst of momentum in 3rd and then they defend out of their skins and we lose this one. First quarter is key. None of our matches against lowly Vic clubs have been the oft repeated danger game, but I do feel an interstate side on their patch is one.
  23. Add Shane Edwards into the thug mix. He tackles ferociously hard but adds the finishing touch of a very subtle dumping of the player into the turf in order to injure. He puts his whole body into it and contorts the players legs into awkward positions, all in one motion so you can't distinguish The grapple and the dump. Calculated accidents. Just ask Ports Butters & Rozee about it! Both him and Cotchin would be aiming to take out one of our mids early in a final
