  1. The first post is the very definition of fickle.
  2. There were several posters who wanted him dropped in the lead up to the Geelong game. Some like yourself have owned it, others haven't.
  3. I love those multi calls, but seriously, the first call went with "fortuidous touch" to describe Petty's desperate spoil. Huge facepalm fella.
  4. I wonder if any posters will learn from this and not be so trigger happy to write players off.... ... ... Bhahahahahahaha
  5. https://www.afl.com.au/video/991955/petty-party-as-six-goal-show-uncovers-new-weapon?videoId=991955&modal=true&type=video&publishFrom=1690704583001&references=AFL_MATCH:4953 I'm backing Petty to turn it around as a forward. He pretty much missed the entire preseason, so he has some catching up to do. Definetely worth persevering.
  6. It was nice lead up play but he had an open player on at the 50 which might have been the go rather than the BBB 50:50.
  7. Reserves as the curtain raiser to the seniors worked for a very long time, and is fondly remembered. It still works for nearly every non-AFL competetion in the nation.
  8. Him (or maybe even better a player like him but not actually him) would have been far more useful than the Grundy experiment, but hindisght is 20:20. Not worth the risk at his age now though.
  9. This is why we need an eye-roll reaction.
  10. Much better Rivers. Nice start to the quarter.
  11. Solid half of footy. We have been quite fumble at times, so a bit to tidy up. Great to see McVee in great form. Biggest frustration that half for me was Rivers kicking. Missed a short one that gave up a goal which happens. The real frustration is when he kicks long and it goes super high and takes for ever to get there. Kick it long, fast and flat and it becomes a weapon.
  12. Any word on whether we will challenge the Rivers charge? Rozee clearly threw himself backwards (even Kane Cornes called it out) and there is no way Rivers should cop a fine for it.
  13. Just wondering if our stats guru @binman can comment on David Kings latest stat buzzword - The Punish. I'm not sure when he first raised it, but he spoke about several times on Sundays First Crack, and although I haven't had a listen yet, I expect he will dive into it again today during his Means Test with Whateley. Seems to be all about how crucial it is to score and defend after turnover. Cheers guys
  14. Great win last night. Very proud of the team and rapt for Vines. It you want a surreal experience, watch the first 5 minutes of The Round So Far. Kane Cornes is full of praise for Melbourne, rightfully recognises how good ANB was last night (and has been all season), and also rightfully calls out the Rozee flop that reversed that free kick and gifted them a goal.
  15. After listening to the commentary tonight, I feel very lucky to have grown up with Bruce, Dennis, Sandy and Drew. I feel sorry for the younger generation who know only the unprofessional rubbish Channel 7 trot out weekly now.
  16. Tough night to be a Lions fan. Frustrating to watch the team play so bad, but oh my, the umpiring was next level atrocious. Would ruin the long weekend.
  17. Every ruck contest involving Cox is an absolute ugly disgrace. Why aren’t the umpires playing free kicks?
  18. An under 14 div 6 finals game
  19. Hopefully if he does want to go back to SA, then Port also put a big number in front of him too. I would love a true bidding war to break out if we are to lose him (but would much prefer him to decide to stay though).
  20. Can’t believe the Foxfooty panel think Collingwood was actually good in that first quarter. Terrible quarter of footy by two teams they looked terribly nervous. Half the league would have been 5 goals ahead of Collingwood at quarter time if that’s the skill and composure they played with.
  21. Both teams sucked in the first quarter but Collingwood got a dream run with the umps. Brisbane was always likely to tidy a few things up and take control. Not surprised at all with the turn around. If Brisbane tall forwards get some marking touch, it will get ugly.
  22. I defenitely saw Oliver shaking a sore hand on Saturday as well as Petracca. It is possible what happened at training today is related.
  23. I’m was surprised too, but in hindsight we’ve done it many times before. They clearly rate the competitive match play during training sessions very highly as a way to decide a players readiness to return.
  24. We've now moved into favouritism. I thought this would occur much sooner after the Swannies injuries over the weekend. No Parker, Mills or Adams is a big loss.
  25. We were banged up coming into finals last year, and then performed poorly right across the ground (but most obviously in front of goals) in both finals and yet still expected scores had us ahead by 3 goals in both games. The pessimists somehow see finishing in the top 4 for the third year straight as the annomaly and the scoreboard result of the two finals as the norm. Bizarre. Top 4 for me unless we are crueled by injuries. Our best is still the best.
