  1. See below I am not saying we have all slow players or always play slow but our game plan is slow and contested and our players are built for contest not speed. It really is a moot point becasue there is no real way to measure it against other clubs, but i stand by our game plan is contested and slow. We got beaten this year by teams who took us on outside of the contest with quick ball movement and leg spped. Again i am not saying we are unable to do that, but we were clearly unable to do it for long periods. Call it stamina or call it style, fact is we weren't good enought to compete with the faster sides so IMO that makes us not fast.
  2. I agree overall with what you've said, the key difference in our arguements is 2 part. a - our game plan is slow & Contested - but yes if we are winning the ball we look fast. b - Overall our players aren't fast. Compare us to essendon, we are a big bodied contested team, we are not fast.
  3. Plus it is about loyalty and buy in. Lots of posters on here sink the boots in the Hawks and their handling of players welfare and then in another thread posters are happy to bag out player or the club for rewarding loyalty and perfomance. Sorry for ranting SWYL, your point on protecting the kids is spot on.
  4. @Axis of Bob, @Damo has said it perfectly. On pure footspeed and gameplan we are not a fast side. You always look fast when you're winning. If you're going to argue we are fast state the criteria. If it is ball movement i think it's obvious we were not fast this year.
  5. Sure cheif, anytime a team wins they are world beaters, that in itself is an obvious statement. The reality is though we are not. Collingwood, Geelong and Sydney exposed us outside of the contest. We are not a fast side even if we look fast when we beat up on sides early in the season.
  6. Are you saying we are a fast team? Or are you just repeating narratives from games where everyone is a world beater?
  7. I agree, it is pretty boring and dosen't generate any excitement. But listening to Lamb yesterday, it sounds like its more about security and looking after the young players. Its a long season and they need to be ready. I trust the coaches on this.
  8. Agree. All the best Hunty, you'll always be a Dee
