  1. I’ll be a little disappointed if we don’t win four in a row and wipe out 1958 memories but I’m enjoying the ride this year
  2. There is no way this is a non incident if that behaviour filtered down junior football would be horrendous.
  3. I think you have to let Clarry get to 270 games and then make the comparison
  4. It’s good for us that he didn’t get rubbed out hopefully he’ll get a few saints next week
  5. I don’t think that the colliwobbles exist they had huge crowds that intimidated umpires and players during the home and away season made them look better than they are, similar to west coast and ,in the past Adelaide, when the grand final came around the partisan crowds disappeared ,in fact probably went for whoever they were playing. Other Victorian teams tend to do well in the GF as they have to deal with neutral or hostile crowds more often. Richmond probably proves me wrong on this but Geelong adds weight to the argument as lately they have had a huge home ground advantage Home and away but flopped in the finals.
  6. No one has mentioned Fred Fannings 116 yard drop kick in 1939 too long ago ? was in a reserves grand final
  7. First time I saw Fritsch play I thought of Robbie skinny , a good kick and mark, probably hasn’t got the evasive skills of Flower but who has Robbie was a gentleman on and off the field and always had time for a chat with a fan ,in fact would chew your ear off in his sports shop if you asked a question about the dees
  8. How about coach Norm Smith or Barassi?
  9. Stretch and Kent were both best 22 for a while this year stretch especially could take a step next year
  10. Now there is a chance of Melbourne Collingwood GF
  11. I think the way to umpire in WA is to undercall both sides which is what the umpires did on Sunday then you don’t get sucked in to home town frees. Sure they missed some to them and to us as well. The call against VDB was a bad call but understandable depending on the angle it may have been seen from. I thought the umpires did a good job on the weekend and probably will do so in a final series.
  12. Overall the frees were 22 to 15 some bad ones but overall the game was let go I still remember 22 to 1 against us in the first half in WA several years ago now that's creative umpiring
  13. Ai thought the umpiring was reasonable last night they got a few calls in the last quarter but with the wind and tide going in Adelaides direction and a feral crowd they held up pretty well . Stevic is one of the most even handed refs and I'd be happy to see him out there for us more often Last night the game was let go with lots of iffy calls ignored . Of course Gusses new mate Razor would be welcome too
  14. I think Petty was a mistake we didn’t respect the opposition enough and paid the price . Frost would seem to be a better option at this time. Still we need to be playing well 5 or 6 weeks out from the finals . The last two years the winner has come home strong . Max was great to watch today
  15. By home ground advantage I mean playing an interstate team in Victoria or Geelong playing at Kardinia Park two Victorian teams at the G or Etihad is 50 50 . Tassie games for north or Hawthorn are often WA teams which is a huge advantage. NT games 50 50 if we play SA or WA teams.
  16. Sitting fourth without having any games with a home ground advantage all year not too bad
  17. Why not have a big Essendon Melbourne game with alternating home games some other time in the year but always at the G and have the big freeze then and keep the QB game as an alternating home game with Collingwood.
  18. One R Flower had a similar body type and played a similar type of game
  19. I don’t think that there is such a thing as a group of GWS supporters you don't need a plural
  20. Oops still it’s always good to bring up Tillbrook
  21. Carl Ditterich Brian Wilson Brent Croswell Peter Moore Vin Cattogio Phil Carmen Kelvin Templeton J Tillbrook
  22. When Viney is up and running he will free up Oliver who can play outside as well as inside Jones has been training as a receiver as well
  23. Flower undoubtedly more skills Barassi would not accept failure and was quite skilled as well In the trenches Barassi for mine. Just to get back on to the thread I feel that Fritsch moves a lot like Robbie and barring injury will become a great player for us
  24. I don't know if this has been mentioned in another thread but the crowd size Richmond vs Collingwood was 72,000 on a lovely Melbourne afternoon with both teams supporters at their feral best,hardly a mention whereas our Anzac eve match on a drizzly night of 77,000 was counted as disappointing.
