  1. I'm not sure either but chucked $5 on them at 10 to 1 Thursday night. Fingers crossed
  2. I'm with you @DubDee I don't understand the continual bagging of Koz. He made a mistake with Bailey Smith and has since adjusted his play. The bump in the final last year was nothing. He shouldn't have got a week and the same again now. Dead set, if we had more players that go as hard and as desperate as Kozzie does to chase and smother, it would be fantastic. His chasing and closing speed is amazing. You can't make a last minute, desperate tackle or smother without leaving the ground. You don't want to remove that desperation from his game or see it disappear from our game. He put his arms up to spoil and then did his best to get his arms down before contact. This was low impact. If he gets a week for potential to cause harm then logic has it that most aerial contests can have the same potential. The circus continues. How does a bloke that threatens to resign if he has to cite Maynard still have his job? Oh yeah, mates. He won't get off but at least we should be supporting one of our hardest working players.
  3. IMHO I'd like to see them paid as professionals and make it a respectable career path for those who love the game but aren't fantastic at playing it. Reward them well as professionals. And drop them on poor performances just as professional players get dropped. As professionals, there should be more scrutiny and comments allowed by the coaches and captains as well. The talent pool seems very shallow right now. They need to grow the talent pool and... Take the grey areas out of the game. Hands in the back being allowed is a classic. And surely 3 of them is enough to officiate a game. I dunno, the AFL is just not investing in this critical area of the game from what I can see. It's easy to disregard when we win, but we shouldn't disregard it and we should be able to question the performance and the decisions made. The crows could have scraped home. If anyone watches the replay, just watch the arms wrapped around Max at rucks all night. It must drive him bonkers
  4. BT banging on about players stuck on the bench in the last ten minutes was pure dribble. There's 6 people on the commentary team and the commentary is still not worth hearing unless it's an update on an injury. Thanks for the SEN tip. Will definitely try it.
  5. Gotcha. The Telstra footy ad drives me a bit mad. If.... The footy bus with all the players breaks down and they call the pub for help. Wouldn't you just organise another bus to pick them up rather than get another bus load of players? I guess it's a typical Telstra / AFL move. With no clear logic applied.
  6. Didn't see a replay of it, so you must have been "seeing things" Bitter 😁
  7. I think the tribunal (channel 7) have already given him 2 weeks in the post game wrap up in the sheds. Can we get Taylor Auerbach on to the case with the MRO team for a few sensual massages and tomahawk steaks before they meet and rub him out for two weeks? They usually have dinner while they pretend to dilereberate. I'm sure there's scope here. Maynard = 0 (and a complimentary premiership medal) Kozzie = -2
  8. I reckon Max had an arm wrapped around him at 80 percent of ruck contests tonight. He was held consistently at rucks. Yet, there were two holding free kicks paid to forwards (one to us and one to them) for lesser holds. It does my head in how he's allowed to be scragged week in week out. It was Rivers that was shoved in the back for that mark. They didn't even have the guts to show a replay of the mark and goal to Adelaide.
  9. I wondered the same thing as well. No replay at all. It was just such a blatant push in the back.
  10. I'm glad that AFLx is still alive!
  11. I think you're thinking of Divine. If you check at the 1min 44 sec mark, that's Tex gazing into her eyes.
  12. I thought 2022 in some ways. We're still spluttering a bit but getting the job done. Lots of players down a bit. Billings, ANB, Clarry, Viney, Langdon. Salem But, so many great efforts carrying us through. Petracca, one of the best games I've seen him play. He just busted through so many packs. TMac, May, Lever, McVee, Kozzie, Gawn all carried us through. That tackling in the last quarter was inspirational. You could also see the skill difference at the end. We were just much cleaner gathering the ball in contests. JVR, he's copped a lot of criticism but I reckon he's just competing around the ground so well. More marks and goals will follow. I think he's going to be am awesome KPF for us. And Windsor, week by week, he's just looking more like Robbie Flower. Some rookies have a couple of good ones and then fade. Caleb seems to be just growing in confidence and stature. I scoffed a bit at the Robbie comparisons at first but I'm really starting to see it. We're getting the job done without being spectacular at the right end of the season. One more big one next week and then we can take a well earned breath. Go Dees
  13. Fat boy walker is running free tonight
  14. They're all in tonight. We are such a soft, polite club. When are we going to call this out.?
  15. Frees 17 to 8. They're 27 points down
  16. We missed three set shots in a row at the end. We could have iced it. You don't want them anywhere near us in the last with that crowd. We converted so well last week. Need to convert this last quarter or we'll be in strife. Jack Billings kicking seems as bad as Maxies
  17. Well done Rooey. He split the pack at a vital contest on the wing beforehand too. He's getting there.
  18. Woey not getting enough game time. Bring him on.
  19. 5 goals in front. 5 free kicks to their 13.
  20. I've had some spicy chicken wings and several beers. Likely to increase this half.
  21. We need to put the foot down and get 5 or 6 goals clear of the crows and umps (crumps) in the 3rd.
  22. That was hilarious. Pickett should have received the ball from Roo to start with. He just had to turn around and go back and get it and kick the goal anyway.
  23. Yep for sure. he is being held with arms around him at every ruck contest.
