    Another is that to find stats you have to go to the match reports.

    Yep, so many of the issues are due to not having the horizontal band at the top of the site which used to show every game of the round at once, be clickable to get to the match centre if the game was live, or be clickable afterwards to get to the match report that included stats. So literally one click for all these results.

  2. It's a mess. One of the issues that annoys me is the 'round centre' pop-up, that I assume is what they think sufficiently replaces the need to have clickable fixture/results at the top of the page.

    When you click on that pop-up each day of the round is on a separate tab, so first of all if you don't know what day the game is on that you're looking for you need to click on each tab to find it. But even worse is the scrolling function. When there is more than 2 games on a day you need to scroll down to find the right game. To do this there's an unbelievably thin red bar that is counter intuitive to use. I've seen interfaces where a thin scroll bar becomes normal thickness when you hover the cursor near it. Nah, not here. Bloody hopeless

    If I was the opposition coach Langdon would have been a real annoyance

    He kept driving the team forward all day (26 possessions) as well as standing out with the run & carry

    I'm most surprised that Langdon didn't get votes from both coaches.  Not sure the umpires would have missed him though

    Langdon stood out all day

    Langdon got a 3 from one coach, similar to Clarry that got a 4 from one coach

    But in both cases the other coach didn't even have either of them on their list

    It shows how hard it is to actually assess value of players to a team

    Coaches Votes:


    By Coach:

    • 5/5 Petracca
    • 4/3 Gawn

    The rest are obvious.  Again agreement on the top 2 but no agreement at all on the rest.  I guess it reflects the team effort and overall contribution by 22 players.

    Leader Board

    28 Taylor Walker ADEL
    22 Max Gawn MELB
    22 Jack Macrae WB
    20 Clayton Oliver MELB
    19 Dustin Martin



    Am I reading this right, but one of the coaches rated Langdon a 3, whereas the other didn't even have him on his list

    Can someone go and collect what the Cats fans are saying? 

    Live for those threads after a win.

    Call it K-rock of [censored] or something like that...

    Every opposition team is well aware that any 50/50 will go against us and play accordingly, the award goes to... Charlie Spargo.

    There isn't a team in the league that could carry as many passengers as we had today & still be a contender.

    Not the end of the world. We win most weeks. Needed some more Constable

    Let’s hope the topping up with pensioners is now finished. We aren’t a contender. Time to concentrate on bringing in quality youth

    The margin flattered us. Melbourne controlled the game all day and could have taken it away from us in the first quarter with better accuracy. We were never in it.

    Cant get my head around the fact Close and Selwood got pinged for clear handballs but Gawn frequently threw it and never got called.

    What I hated the most about today was the clear contempt Melbourne had for our physicality. They took on the tackler in close just about every time, and with great success, got handballs out or crashed through where we should have been able to lock it in.

    Our setup without/behind the ball is the best in the competition. 

    Yep, looking good right now. Wow, what a difference from the practice match v Dogs. 

    This type of system works so well when every single player performs and stays in line. I think it's finally clicked, just took a little while to settle. I wonder how much is on Goody and how much on Yze and Chocco? Probably evenly shared I'd think

    Geelong's game plan is quite obvious. Cheat at all opportunities. The most penalised team in the comp, and the umps have paid so many free kicks against them they've almost given up.

    They're bringing the game into disrepute.

    I said this during the week, they clearly train to take advantage of umpiring and rules that can be manipulated

    Need to be disciplined as the umps love them and they are a bunch of ducking snipers.  

    They really know how to milk and play for free kicks. The bastards obviously train for it

    Definitely Scott's influence (along with Selwood). They probably justify it by the 'whatever it takes' mantra

    Hunt and Langdon were excellent tonight.

    There was one moment where Hunt got it at half back and handballed to Langdon on the wing, then both of them sprinted down the wing together with their hair blowing back. If someone could dig out a screenshot of that, that'd be great, I need a new avatar. Think TMac has had his time :-)
