    After last night’s big game in Adelaide there could be no better vision from the vault than Andrew Leoncelli’s match winner against the Crows ~

     

     

    My Andrew Leoncelli story ...

    I was at a lunch with some female colleagues. Andrew was at another table. I introduced myself to Andrew and said I was a Demons supporter. He put his arm around me and said "you poor man".

    I then told him that I had told my colleagues that he had kicked the winning goal with 5 seconds to spare some years before. Without further ado, he walked over to my table, pulled out his phone and showed my colleagues a clip of the winning goal. Hilarious!! 

    Top bloke.

    i don't care if we're boring, as long as we win

    as someone at a club said to me recently, "you don't have to play well to win"

    Saints are a basket case. Play boring football and still lose miserably.

    When the weather is awful in the UK?

    It was one game, Langdon wouldn't have made a difference to whether we won or lost.

    Ed has played 17, 24, 23, 25 games since coming to the Dees. He is possibly the most no-fuss player on the list. Turns up almost every week, runs his butt off, then you never hear about him off-field.

    Yes he is paid well to play AFL footy but it was one game. His sister shouldn't have to work her life around him.

    He played with 4 broken ribs. Only had one or 2 weeks off from memory.

  4. Yo ... does anyone know if the Dees are training at Gosch's Paddock this morning? If so, what time?

    I couldn't see anything on the MFC website.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Update/apology .... re-checked the MFC website.

    Training tomorrow (Saturday ... 9.45 am) at GP.

    10% less disposal efficiency turning over the ball 10 more times, with eagles intercepting 10 more times than us leading to 21 more inside fifties for Eagles which produced:

    10 goals from turnovers for them.

    1 goal from turnover for us. 
     

    We won a lot of stats:

    We won hit outs, stoppage clearance and clearances and we got 6 more free kicks. 
     

    We were also more efficient going forward but not by a lot. Obvs with a lot less entries. 

    I’m not a stats guy but this tells a story. They won by converting turnovers into goals. 

    I'm surprised we won the clearances. However, that stat doesn't mention the quality of the clearances. I think overall their clearances were cleaner.

    Moreover, the Tigers only won two games that season. 

    Good word.

    Next you'll be using "notwithstanding" and "hereinbefore". Even lawyers have stopped using those words.

    FWIW I had a coffee with a woman the other day who kept using the word "happenstance". Now there's a word you don't hear every day.

  7. I watched the post match on Kayo, who presumably take the Foxtel coverage.

    In the Brisbane rooms ... Darcy, Bolton (Jude) and Jones (Nathan).

    Does it really take 3 of them to conduct interviews? Darcy kept looking at the camera while the other 2 were asking questions, mainly Jonesy. It looked ridiculous.
