  1. And possibly a sponsor or two plus we will be likely to get less "free to air" time let alone and Friday nights (if / when we get back to that format). Would want to be some sort of finish to 2020 OD. My worry is we just don't have the solutions to put a big regular winning score on the board forward of center. Our forward line (no matter how you try and dress it up / move it around) continues to be a complete shambles and a fair way off AFL standard let alone something that will take us to finals or better. That's not to say we won't win tonight. One can only hope we'll be competitive against another cellar dweller. I am referring to things in general over the medium to long term rather than one match in isolation.
  2. Many would say you are suffering from MFCSS Bin. But that scenario is not a far fetched as some would argue! We do have an uncanny knack of making average footballers and / or rookies look like super stars at times that's for sure. Then there's the "playing teams into form" part. Still waiting for the worm to turn.
  3. Keep an eye out for Harry Schoenberg. Not saying he'll be a world beater this early but did look a likely prospect and smart ball distributor at u18 level. No doubt he's probably a few seasons away from impacting but could be a very nice player at some point.
  4. I sometimes wonder how we would react were we to see a sustained period of success ding. It would all seem very strange indeed. Continue on the plonk maybe?
  5. Well i was trying to stay a bit half glass full Jnr. From here on in i'm probably better off just filling one with two fingers off the top shelf!
  6. I can only figure there's been no response as you pretty much nailed it SNS. My only addition to that is we still don't have enough class coming inside 50 nor a genuine KF. Our 4 biggest weaknesses for mine... A 2nd key tall down back that can handle the opp's 2nd best tallish forward and shut him down PLUS create some run with ball in hand and expend the opponent's energy chasing. We only have Hibb capable of doing this atm. Hoping that Hore will eventually fill Oscar's place here. Or someone. We need a classy tallish marking winger with a bit of dash and clever finesse coming inside 50. Langdon is a great runner but a tad NQR coming inside. Still very handy though and the best we have for one wing. Fritsch 'might' be capable on the other but if not we need to find an option. One classy / speedy outside biased mid with evasive clean ball use needed. A genuine KF needed. Would be throwing a big pile of folding stuff at Cameron. Oh, and depending on how the rest of the season pans out, a clean out of the FD & a new Coach. Is that asking a little too much?
  7. ... or is it the FD as a whole Dazzle? So many long faces among the FD, both in the box and on the field of late.
  8. Correct but you are taking that out of context to create a general negative specific to recruiting a style of player Bin. Different issue. I am talking accountability in the back half, specifically directed at Jnr's original post where he was commenting on Oscar. Roos, Ross or Ron...makes no difference. Accountability when you haven't got the ball is one of the critical factors required in team defence and a significant requirement for a club's success imv.
  9. I reckon it's about time to check out to be honest DJ. Most of the players have...
  10. Yes not a great finish AF but by that stage i think Roos and hence the boys, were all boarding the bus...
  11. And..... ratings AF. Don't know how we are fairing but can't be great surely. The AFL brains trust will no doubt be watching. Anything that's beyond tenable , or worse, and the jungle drums will be beating, the purse strings loosening.
  12. Road to Finals / GF - Triple Crown Update (to Rnd 9, 2020) Vs the Power Meters Gained Differential (looking for + 200 or more) 👉 -638 ❌ Marks inside 50 Differential (any positive is a win but the higher the better) 👉 -4 ❌ Contested Possession Differential (looking for a +10 or greater) 👉 -12 ❌ Season Averages (the one that counts) Meters Gained Average Differential (looking for an average of + 200 or more) 👉 -14.5 ❌ From +74.6 last week to this. The top five with current ladder positions in parenthesis below. It is worth noting that only the top four clubs have a +200 (or greater) average here. That's one more club than last week being the Lions. 1. Power (1st) 2. Tigers (5th) 3. Cats (6th) 4. Lions (2nd) 5. Saints (3rd) Marks inside 50 Average Differential (ideally we need to see a top 6 ranking) 👉 5th ✔️ Down one place from last week with a +1 average differential but still in the top 6. The top 5... 1. Lions 2. Power 3. Pies 4. Tigers 5. Demons Contested Possession Average Differential (looking for +10 or more) 👉 +8 ❌ Dropping two places to No.4 from last week and now below the required pass rate. The top 5: 1. Kangas 2. Pies 3. Cats 4. Demons 5. Lions
  13. Yes to that. I've been saying for years, don't play 2 or 3 of chunk (earlier), viney & clarry in the middle at the same time. Recipe for disaster. Viney should be a bench player that comes on to relieve either of Clarry or Tracc. Preferrably Clarry. Tracc going forward on occasions to change up with Harmes or visa vera. The combo you mentioned and/or Harmes if needed for a lock down/run with, joining Gus & Clarry As the starting 3 under IF required. Tracc up forward when Harmes is on the lock role. The above combos give us a better inside / outside balance imv and to me it suits Viney's game style being he is more a burst / crash / bash type. He comes on in shorter stints with more energy and power available each time vs remaining on the ground for longer periods and the edge coming off his game as he's getting fatigued.
  14. Weighted Average Scores at the end of Rnd 9, 2020 Wouldn't take much notice of Sparrow's result. Obviously only one match played this season and comparing it to only two matches last season. Pretty dodgy base.
