  1. I reckon the loss of TMac has hurt us significantly. I have not always be a fan, and if you looked at his stats in the GF last year, you wouldn't think he was much of a loss. Except... he's incredibly strong (ask Cordy), impossible to move off the ball, competes in the air every time, and has a bit of mongrel. So he gets a serious defender. And one for BBB. Which leaves Baiely F to deal with the third defender and he's usually too smart for them. Gawn is no forward (Prelim final not withstanding), and neither if Jackson. We've lost a key element of our offense, and I think it's had very significant knock-on effects.
  2. Perth has some nice golf courses, but nothing like Royal Melbourne. Loves his golf, does our Gus.
  3. He was wearing a bandage on his knee on one of the training photos. I didn't worry at the time.. Ugh - ruckman and PCLs
  4. I agree, other than I'd keep Sparrow. He kicks (?kicked?) goals and is a bull. Rivers is a defender who can break the lines, and I think we miss him.
  5. I know this isn't the 70s (or 60s, or 80s !), and toughness is straight-lining the ball. But our stars have been the targets of off-the-ball cheap shots for much of the year. We are being belted up, and have been for weeks. Over time, it adds up. Not sure what the answer is, but the Lions will be a test. Who will them on if they get into Jacko off the ball (as has happened to Max for years)?
  6. they killed us at the fall of the ball. this isn’t on the BBB or Mitch Brown or Jackson or Max. it’s on Spargo, Kossie,ANB, Sparrow, Trac, Oliver. Even with May in, I don’t think we win this. it’s the formula that North abs StKilda used, but executed superbly

  8. This - 100% this. The big issue is blowing up what seemed to be (and what we were told was) pivotal to our success. Not that he would give a continental... but May has lost me. I still want him to play for us, because he's a gun. I hope this doesn't happen again
  9. May is reported to have said to Melksham: "If you played in the GF, we would have lost". In the "Momentum" video (a beauty - I'm sure all DLanders have seen it...) Gawn talks about a meeting before the 2021 season where Aaron vandenBerg said to the group "we have to stop slagging off at each other" . Someone would say "Jake Lever had 11 intercept marks", but then someone else would make a smart comment like "well, he doesn't play on anyone"... Not true, and also brings Lever down. So they decided to stop doing that, respect each other, cut out the [censored] banter. And won a flag. And May has brought that back. "It's just a bit of banter"... THAT's a serious problem.
  10. Infection after 3 days from hitting a bloke in the mouth and getting a penetrating injury from the teeth. Absolutely possible and serious if that's what happened.
  11. Times have certainly changed from Kennedy/Barassi coaching. And I would say for the better... This is the second upload by the club- the first one obviously cut off early.
  12. Injury report (apologies if this is a repost). TMac, Salem, Harmes, Langon all available , as is Petty (MRI -> no structural damage)
  13. Goodwin's press conference Petty "has a bit of a knee" - ugh. we don't need him out 6-8 Petracca "woke up crook" - ok, that what it looked like
