  1. I should feel enthused that we are about to land one of the great ruckmen of the modern era....but I don't! I just don't get how him and Gawn combo will work!
  2. I do remember him going off limping in the last game, but came back onto the field a while later.
  3. Yep We were every bit as dominant in the first half on Friday as we were at the Gabba. I'm tipping the stats would be very similar for contested possession, clearance, inside 50s etc. Only thing that changed was accuracy and we left the door open.
  4. It's fitness and playing injured players for mine, along with stubborn coaching/ selection / game plan. Must admit though, i don't think I once heard selfless footy being banged on about like it did all of last year!
  5. Gee those 2 goals on the siren came back to haunt.
  6. Yes to pretty much everything. We tried EVERYTHING we did last year, without a plan B. Played injured players like last year expecting same result. Do we blame players for putting their hand up to play, OR coaches for not freshening up when it was so obvious blokes were playing hurt AND being so damn predictable and refusing to make changes when teams picked us apart in 2nd halves . It's the latter for me. We looked good in nearly every first half before running out of steam
  7. Definitely has The Tim Taranto vibe about it. Strikingly similar both appear to have checked out!
  8. It was probably 70-30 crowd to us. I thought they were louder than us and I was there. Heard Bucks say same thing post match and he was there. It's not hard to see why. A combination of a very old demographic and a lot of supporters with hearts in their mouths waiting for the 2nd half fade out.
  9. Even at 10-0 we weren't playing great footy, most of those wins were an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and we dominated 1. Our game plan , our run n carry that was some of the best footy ever seen last year was non existent and to me it is clearly fitness, we simply could not run games out like last year and execute our game plan. At least 6 blokes out there were on 1 leg tonight. Lever, Brown, Trac, Salem, Gawn, Viney . You can't carry that many sore players and expect to win. Blessing in disguise, we'd have got pantsed and embarrassed against Geelong. Goodnight all.
  10. Dees by 8 goals late in the 3 Rd. Trac "rested" with soreness. You heard it here first.
  11. Unfortunately for us Lions omitted Robbo and Matho!
  12. I vividly remember her eyeballing me at the first gig I ever went to as a 15yo. I was starstruck. Sorry Mono she's mine . RIP Rock goddess
  13. I mentioned this earlier but he reached for his throat after a tackle he laid at HFF city end SKW stand side ....not sure which of these incidents come first but I believe the tackle.
  14. There was a blatant head duck in our game, I believe Mills in Front of their goals in the last , straight into the tackler and zero attempt to get rid of the ball and not pinged. I guess we were fortunate he didn't get sucked in by the head duck.
  15. Wonder if it had anything to do with having already run 100m, the ground was wet, and he was 55m out? Not to mention carrying the rest of his team.
  16. Yep, right in front of me I saw him go down on his haunches for 10- 20 secs, when he got up and took a step his leg gave way completely. Limped/walked half way to bench and I assumed he would get subbed out, but then stayed on inexplicably and was a witches hat for rest of first quarter. Got some run back 2nd half but clearly hampered. Brave to stay out but may have been costly.
  17. It was in a tackle he made I reckon, city end around HFF Shane Warne stand side. From memory he actually won the free but I remember seeing him reach for his throat almost immediately after the tackle.
  18. Played with a hairline fracture last night. They are planning on playing him against Brisbane still. We're in trouble without a fit Petracca
  19. Agree on all this. No doubt loading happens, every team in finals contention are doing it, but there's enough sample size now to understand it can't be used an an excuse for our form. The dare is the big one for me, it's just not the same as last year but I think a lot of this comes from good opposition coaching who know it won us games last year. We still appear to have no Plan B. Bizarre we are at our worst at the G, and miraculously look a different team interstate.
  20. Beaten by a better hungrier team, simple as that. Their pressure was off the charts. It was actually a great game of footy for 3 quarters, great atmosphere. Nobody likes losing but you have to credit Sydney, they were great. We were sloppy at times but played some good footy too. The Buddy dive turned the game, awful, disgraceful decision.
  21. Not sure if you realise but he was playing on one leg from midway through the first quarter. He could barely jog at one stage and I expected him to be subbed off. I would not be too critical of him tonight.
  22. It's been pretty ordinary watching some games live lately where it randomly just goes back to the beginning of the broadcast mid match. Has happened a few times the past month. Overall it's been pretty good but it's frustrating when it happens and usually multiple times once it starts happening.
