  1. Even his free kicks against has been cut in half. Had great intent last year with his pressure, but so much more discipline this year.
  2. 6: Pickett 5: Fritsch 4: Jackson 3: Langdon 2: May 1: Salem
  3. I'm expecting more of the same. Hawks to challenge at times throughout the game, but for us to hold our nerve and win without great threat. 5 goal win.
  4. 21000 attendance shows the pessimism of the fanbase. Despite the win today I'm not feeling much more optimistic. We are having the same clearance issues that we've had for two years, and a good team would have punished us today. Zone defence is looking very good though, and I thought our entries inside 50 were improved, even without our preferred key forwards.
  5. Overall very positive signs for mine. Richmond with most of their best 22, and decent effort from both teams. -Small forwards worked well. Spargo and Chandler the standouts. Both should maintain their spots in the best 22. -TMac moving well and clunking a few contested marks. -Key position defenders did well, Lever and Gawn finding plenty of intercepts -Won the clearances and managed to turn a lot of them into clean inside 50s. Nankervis doesn't provide much of a threat to Gawn though. -Use of the corridor was pleasing. The speed of ball movement was impressive in gene
  6. Midfield has been looking very good in the contest. Much more comparable to 2018.
  7. Personally I don't want to see Petty up forward, let him settle into the role he's been training for down back. I think we harmed Joel Smith's development significantly by constantly swapping him between forward and back. I'd rather have Fritsch and M.Brown out of the goalsquare, with T.Mac and Jackson roaming between half forward and wing.
  8. Feels like a win-win to me. Next year's draft is meant to be quite strong and a future third is very much useable. Hannan is borderline best 22 for us, but will be a near lock in the Dogs' forwardline. With Bennell and Hannan out though, and Melksham getting older, I hope we target some forwards in this draft.
  9. I'd be very happy to take him on a reasonably cheap contract. We know he can fit within our forwardline, and in theory we should be more capable of addressing any issues with him compared to other clubs. Just depends if there's any bad blood between Hogan and the club.
  10. Free agency makes a lot of sense from a player perspective. I don't think it's unreasonable that a player should be able to force a move to an employer or their choice after 8/10 years. The problem is that the destination club gets the player for free. I think there should be a draft point penalty in a similar way to how father-son and zone selections work. For example if Jeremy Cameron leaves as a free agent then GWS will get compensation of pick 9. Geelong should have to pay the equivalent value in draft points, in this case 1469 points. This can be taken from their current picks, and e
  11. Would we actually get anything useful for him? I'd rather keep him as depth. If we have May, Lever and Tomlinson playing as key defenders every game, then that only leaves Smith as defensive key depth, and he's hardly even a key defender. I'd rather Petty be allowed to develop up forward, and I don't want TMac's form to get even worse by swinging him between back and forward.
  12. If we have any confidence in Bradtke's development then I'd be happy to take a third rounder for him. However I think we could possibly squeeze a late second out of GWS should they think he's their man.
  13. Weitering had a great performance in round 1 and carried that hype for an entire season. May was significantly better than him and Collins probably was too. Darcy Moore in a similar situation. Had multiple bad games through the middle of the year that the selectors are happily ignoring.
  14. Quaynor getting the nomination is a joke. Rivers and Scholl were significantly better than him this week. Also if you're looking at body of work Rivers and Quaynor have basically the same stats this season.
  15. I'm happy with the selections. It's not an inspiring lineup but the players currently out of the team were all given chances and didn't perform. Swapping all of our forwards every week doesn't help anyone, so I'm glad to see slightly more continuity.
