  1. I just watched Pickett's goal in slow-mo a couple of times, and it's even more impressive than I thought - super quick little steps initially to throw off the Saint in his face and the one on his tail. Hope I'm watching him kick goals for the Dees for the next 10+ years.
  2. Until I read this thread, I had no idea this existed - actually thinking of jumping on just for the player edits, and the heat maps sound really interesting too.
  3. I can't see why people are ruling out Stafford as forwards coach just because he wasn't a forward. Coaching is about teaching, not about whether you are or were great at a particular thing yourself - and it's not like he has no elite footy background, if that's important to you; 204 games and 141 goals. Given he's been at the Club in ruck and goal-kicking roles for quite a while, we should have a very good idea of what he's like as a coach.
  4. I'd say this may have something to do with it: 'AFL-mandated $3m cut to our AFL football soft cap expenditure'
  5. It baffles me when people say Woewodin didn't deserve a Brownlow because he did not have a great career. The Brownlow is not a lifetime achievement award, it's about how good you were in a given season. Woewodin had a great year in 2000, and even if he didn't get a vote in the final round he still would have won (tied with West).
  6. Given the people of VIC already support AFL, they're going to support the AFL regardless, so we should probably permanently relocate the 10 teams somewhere there's a far greater potential for growing the game ;)
  7. It's pretty amusing when people talk about Clubs needing to be being financially independent of AFL funds. It seems to me that they're forgetting that the Clubs playing in the AFL are the ones generating all the 'AFL' money, including the broadcast agreements - without the Clubs there's no 'AFL money' worth talking about. Split the broadcast money 18 ways and all the Clubs are looking pretty financially independent, even if COVID meant you couldn't have crowds.
  8. I reckon most Demonlanders would have loved to have an AFL career half as good as Dunn's.
  9. Fair call re: values, but most AFL players are starting from near scratch when they leave footy, and almost all will never earn anywhere near the same amount of money - not even in the same ball park. I think that's got to be taken into consideration. That said, if you're earning big coin for quite a few years of a 10+ year contract you could very easily have a nest egg that would give you say 50K p/a indefinitely. Out of interest, what makes you think Tom is one of the most likely to forge a post-footy career outside of footy?
  10. Although I'd hope that you could find one tackle like this in everyone's highlight reel, I did love that chase at the end.
  11. I think rucks are done a real disservice by being instructed to always dish off by hand - if you never kick in games, you're never going to be able to kick in games. I get that you don't want your less skilled players constantly turning it over, but it really stymies players' development if they're not trusted to every kick the footy in matches. Maggie's young and I imagine she's a long way off her pootential, so I'd definitely be stripping her technique right back to basics and teaching her how to kick the footy. I reckon you can turn just about anyone into a serviceable kick.
  12. My Grandma is quicker than 2020 TMac. (She's six feet under).
