  1. oh sweet bbp, you sweet, sweet fella... when are the little piggies sprouting wings and taking to the sky??
  2. and the $3.55 admin fee to have the privilege to do so
  3. i mean the allowed capacity not how many will rock up :)
  4. viney has lead from the front on the field, has shown loyalty despite approaches from other clubs, speaks with pride in the club in public, supports and backs his elder and younger teammates, and is always trying to get the best out of himself may was made co-captain of his side and walked out with a year to go on his contract, rocked up to his new club looking like he'd eaten a spare tyre, and as a 29 year old took a year to 'realise' what was required of him, after which he lead brilliantly on the field in 2020 i'd go viney for a leadership role every day of the week over may
  5. it's not new news to these players all coaches have been saying the same to the same group since at least 2018 sometimes it just requires a fresh voice and a different delivery of the message to get through
  6. based off recent training reports and rehab groups... rd 1 seniors B: Lockhart - May - Lever HB: Hunt - Tomlinson - Smith C : Langdon - Petracca - Salem HF: Melksham - Weideman - Harmes F: Fritsch - B Brown - Pickett Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Viney I/c: Jackson - Spargo - Rivers - McDonald Emerg: Jones - Rosman - Sparrow - Jetta likely unavailable: brayshaw - hibberd - hore - petty
  7. kornes doesn't really rate ruckmen despite matress and lade giving him silver service in his best years
  8. retired: nathan jones michael hibberd neville jetta traded: angus brayshaw alex neal-bullen delisted: toby bedford aaron vandenberg james jordan aaron neitschke kade chandler mitch brown
  9. very sad all the best to his family
  10. biggest thing that pleases me from report is the amount of players in full training i find it interesting that melksham is training with the mids as i don't particularly find him valuable either inside or outside it concerns me a bit that hunt is training with the backs as his disposal is simply not nearly good enough based upon previous seasons to be running off the back flank but we shall see
  11. worse still, i believe daily mail is now the #1 'news' site in oztraya goes to show what people value...
  12. means nothing; afl fantasy points is all about accumulation of stats through possessions; supercoach measures effectiveness of usage at least, as it uses champion data ranking points gawn is the #1 average scoring player in both games from memory, oliver and trac are right up there in top 10 but again it means little - richmond for instance has barely any player who averages 100+ points (neck tatts) and only another three who average 90+ ppg, whereas we have the top 3 who average 117+ ppg each, then viney, may, langdon also at 90+ it's not how how possessions you get but how yo
  13. bizarrely, got my voting forms today but no email that is referenced above our board would seem, from the outside looking in, to have done a reasonable job given the circumstances of the year and the inconsistency of the football dept for the last two seasons
  14. i don't get the love for hore... hopefully i'll be proved wrong but he was dropped multiple times as a senior recruit in his first year, finished the season in the vfl, and then was crocked the entirety of 2020 smith is ahead of him for mine by dint of being regularly IN the side last year seniors B: Smith - May - Lever HB: Rivers - Tomlinson - Hibberd C : Langdon - Petracca - Salem HF: Melksham - Weideman - Harmes F: Fritsch - B Brown - Pickett Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Viney I/c: Jackson - Brayshaw - Hunt - Baker Emerg: Jones - Spargo - McDonald - Sparrow magoos
  15. perhaps that was the point...
  16. i would have thought our gameplan was fairly self-evident in the way we have played for several years win stoppages and clearances is the #1 mandate move the ball via overlap run fan wide on the rebound / entering 50 clear out / block central corridor and force teams to use the boundary thus theoretically maximising repeat stoppages and limiting oppo run (doesn't work if we don't defend exits effectively) defend maniacally limit turnovers (which can mean we sometimes look overly cautious when in possession) what i like is that it's not overly complic
  17. Boak is a great role model - excellent player, great leader, loyal to one club
  18. burgoyne, burgoyne, francou, kornes with primus in the ruck was a fearsome combo during their golden period at the start of the 00s add in nick stephens until 04, plus josh carr, adam kingsley, wanganeen, and pickett, and they were the quintessential 'almost' team until the breakthrough in 04 those clashes between the bears and the pear in that era were epic
  19. interesting that we play freo in the pre-season and then again in round 1
  20. as, theoretically, the afl and subsidiaries (i.e. clubs) are not for profit, any money we would have to pay back as part of a loan to clear debt etc. would be money that we could have otherwise spent, yes? we can carry the debt without a care in the world (theoretically) because of the afl being able to guarantee us
