  1. Have always laughed at other club's 'death riding' our picks, feel like it's tempting fate to do the same. Not sure any club has done well put of death riding. That said, top 5 please, would really burn Freo who have been a 'Bell' end to deal with.
  2. I am in Addis, is 10pm start, we are putting in, look like we belong, they are quick though.
  3. Anyone watching tonight, chance of a miracle? I have us at 10:1
  4. I think he has been first class with his work for the Dees, and wanted to jump on here and express my gratitude for a job well done. Enjoyed his contribution to the Gus and Gawn podcast, his interviews, and his enthusiasm for his work. Probably one of his more onerous tasks has been to trawl this website, and if he does I am sorry for some of the drivel he has been exposed to. Am sure he knows we are generally nuts but love the club. (would love to know if he has ever posted). Anyway, thanks for all the content over the COVID era, and good luck in the future.
  5. So according to hi Twitter feed, Ben Gibson is leaving. I think he has been first class with his work for the Dees, and wanted to jump on here and express my gratitude for a job well done.

  6. So bloody jealous right now WWSW, big downside to my job, even when I’m home is too last minute to snag TKTS, although I was able to brag my way into the Prince one night many years ago as dirty humanitarian on shore leave.
  7. 95kg at 18 is extremely promising, is going to be one of the stronger rucks going around am willing to bet, no idea where he will be skill wise, but on video alone it seems his reflexes are ahead of the game, baby giraffe not appropriate, more preying mantis.. I really think JT has picked the eyes out of a draft considering our picks reflect where we sit on the ladder. Casey must be very short odds for B2B!
  8. @Binman, thanks, I hadn't heard that and it makes perfect sense, quagmires (maybe a bit strong) never did scoring any good. AFL has a terrible record with grounds and as a Dees fan, truly think we get the rough end of the pineapple, I do wish we could be more Rory Breaker “If the milk turns out to be sour, I ain't the kinda [censored] to drink it.” BTW The more I hear from Roffey the more I like her, really think she is the leader the club needs to navigate the perils of a footy club. She's not Merkel yet but as far as building consensus seems to be well on the way.
  9. Sounds like a DD special he was worried that our Cat B's would deny chances too
  10. What ever training he did in the states, you can see it in his shoulders, he is not skinny in the traditional sense of being weak, looks like he already has some ‘density’ to his muscle mass and looks like he knows/embraces physical contact. Quite keen to see what his kicking looks like and handball, disposal will be his kryptonite I think.
  11. Showing my age here, but Kade is a monty for Judge Dredd. If I had my way I would nick name him Dredd.
  12. That’s just Daisy and a bit too subtle for my liking, more like this
  13. Time for an update please, need some real estate for our latest premiers.
  14. Ok so wasn't a goal fest, I normally couldn't stand such a low scoring affair, but this game demonstrated incredible tackling pressure, these girls hit hard, then rinse and repeat, in a pure display of heart and pressure. Very very proud Demon fan, you could show these highlights to some of the men's teams going around. The overall bravery really won me over. I love how TH came to the club under a bit of a cloud and has absolutely been a team player. I love that Daisy is just one of tje most credible football players going around at the moment and really hope she doesn't stay at Geelong very long. I hope Mick the coach gets the plaudits he deserves, he has the team sticking to the system under incredible pressure. Huge props to all the players, nothing more fun than supporting a champion team over a team full of champions. The umpiring was turgid and inconsistent and didn't do credit to the game at all, I guess the a list ups are on a break too. Tacky of the Brisbane coach, they can suck on their Dead sea of salt tears. AFLW is going to grow the game, no doubt in my mind at all. Thank you women you did us proud.
  15. Every time I read DL I think no, then I watch the GF and other things he does below his hips and think wow. Not fully utilising all his skills yet, absolutely worth the coin and risk, his best is amazing. And funnily enough really don't think it will be down to the goals he kicks, more about how he makes others better and can put team mates in space.
  16. Has been an excellent weekend so far, just waiting for a good result tomorrow, and it will have been perfect. Will be watching what I can from Cote de Ivorie! I think it will be a cracking contest, both teams have real strengths and it will be a very tough game.
  17. Wow, got excited by this photo of Kozzie, looks like a weapon and a half, more NFL wide receiver than a small AFL forward. I sort of get DD's point, but I always thought cat.b were for the unusual circumstances, we are a unique sport and anything that attracts others to it creates interest is a good thing. I wasn't sure that the end of cat b would mean two more cat.a spots. The hyphen looks fit for a 18y.o., and would rather train a ruck than get a retread. Our gameplan is backing ruck superiority, cat b is an economical way to invest and our recruiting department deserves our confidence. Lastly was very sorry for Bradtke, he really got rolled by COVID and injuries. Lastly, I too think there could be a better process and more space for country footy players and others that didn't make it in first two years. Kurt Warner was a pretty classic story.

  19. Guilty of Clickbait Confusion, compared to a Hun journalist... the shame of it.
  20. I once read, (and wasn't able to find, I think it might have been the secret footballer series in the Age) that a footballer's greatest fear (apart from injury) was that it would be revealed that ice baths were unnecessary, and in fact had been a great waste of time. Something I read with amusement and no little agreement. My surprise at this article in the NYT was strong, I had accepted it as fact that cold water immersion was a key part of recovery from heavy training. Will be interesting to see if this filters through into any footy clubs training regimes. Or at least interesting to folks like me who follow training trends closely. Any of the @Webber types got any thoughts? https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/21/well/move/exercise-icing-sore-muscles.html For those nerds like me interested in background (and needing to procrastinate) - I added some links, I had thought AIS research on the subject was 1st class and behind the success of our track cyclists. https://www.chiefscientist.gov.au/2010/07/sport-and-science-winning-athletes-gold https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23743793/
  21. I though he nailed it, liked the ranking. He also noted AFLPA poty was a popularity contest. Clarry doing well on nearly all metrics.
  22. He's the version of the story I wanted to read about Jurrah! I must admit I wondered how he'd look playing for us, but then I also used to think we could bring Boyd back as well.
  23. Is worth a debate, my love for Jeff White remains strong, May hasn't topped Jeff yet, we had many good years from him. May has Moloney, Powell, Bizzell, Vince, Cross, Lewis etc. covered though. Of the current crew, Lever and Langdon go pretty well, Hibberd hardly shabby.
  24. If Tracc hadn't gone ballistic could have been a worthy NS medallist.
