  1. Right, so footy then? 😂 Let's hope these players on modified programs can step it up post-Christmas. I'm not worried so much now as it is quite usual for players to be eased back into pre-season before Christmas with mostly running drills, but I'd be concerned if the rehab group doesn't shrink significantly by then. Let's see! Thanks for the reports btw
  2. Someone mentioned him in another thread and I checked out his highlights on youtube. Made a good impression with his skills, composure and just seems like a solid footballer. A bit difficult to see the running ability and pace from the video but I'll take spirit of norm smith at his word Tom McKenzie | 2018 NAB U18 Championships | Vic Metro v Vic Country
  3. Why always so defensive in this way? Maybe he doesn't have the opportunity to ask? A non-condescending way to reply would be to say that you chatted to Jennings and got the impression that clubs want to investigate every new 'approach' as professional sport changes daily...
  4. Don't mind the draw. The key things that stood out to me on first view: - 6 day break from WCE game Sunday in Alice Springs with travel back to VIC to play the Saints. Why can't we play on the Saturday?? I guess it requires another game to shift to Sunday, perhaps Carlton v Suns - Very short break before the Anzac Eve game, although given Richmond also have the same issue I guess can't complain - Glad to have two away games vs Gold Coast and Brisbane, as they are very winnable and useless financially if we played at the MCG But to me most of the 'issues' stem from selling t
  5. I'm actually keen now he's delisted, at least thow up a 1 year, possible 2 year with performance clause. We need to replace the goals that Hogan kicked. Menzel averaged 2.1 per game last year and Jesse 2.4. Neade averaged 0.5 Yes he has a poor defensive game, but he offers plenty of upside Maybe by having him on the list it may give Garlett a shove up the backside...?? Also gives Spargo/T. Smith more competition for his spot, which is always a good thing At the least if we have him on low money he will be valuable to Casey and useful depth Lastly, realistically,
  6. Neale to Brisbane for pick 5 Hogan to Freo for pick 5 and 23 Pick 5 and 36 to GCS for May and pick 19 Pick 46 to GCS for KK We get May, KK and picks 19 and 23 - along with picks 54, 62 and 65 (which may be used in other trades or upgrades) We give Hogan, pick 36 and pick 46
  7. Game is being played on their terms Need to change it to the way we play if we have any chance
  8. Missed handballs, slipping, fumbling, no pressure Jones and Viney - 0 tackles
  9. Yep Viney may not be at his best, but even at 50% he's better value than the bottom 5 of our best 22 You never know, he may produce a ripper comeback game, such is his intensity and desire. But it's a big step up from no match day experience in weeks months straight into a final.
  10. Another stat from 2018 - time spent in front Rich 69.76% Melb 62.73% WCE 62.31% GWS 61.60% Coll 56.83% Ess 55.86% Geel 55.39% Haw 55.22% Bloody Hawks know the right time to be in front!
  11. Adelaide 65 Port 58 Richmond 56 GWS 55 Syd and Geel 54 And so on... edit: oh and we won 49 last year (8th)
  12. I see! So basically it's because they won more games yeah
  13. We won the most quarters (61) of any team this year. WC on 59, Rich 56, Coll 55 and Geel 52 Also highest average winning margin of 52.2 (funnily enough Bris is 3rd on 42.6 behind Geel on 46.7) 4th lowest losing margin of 22.6 (Geel No. 1 on 12.9) Can someone explain how we can have a higher ave. winning margin and lower ave. losing margin than Richmond, but they have a superior percentage? I realise it is points for vs. against but how does the ave. margins work in this scenario?
  14. Forgot to hit 'enter' mono? About 1 qtr late...
  15. Fritsch one handball! Same stats as Kenty
  16. I thought they were already... You can't expect a team to hit every one! In saying that, I think we are also playing pretty well. Just a little loose defensively but we'll see how it plays out. Trac needs to hit the sticks when he has the chance rather than trying to lay it off so much
  17. Yep Salem was caught in no mans land on several occasions either ball watching or guarding no one in particular... I know he's used for his offensive side but gee some of his defensive efforts are poor (usually due to his positioning as he generally goes in hard when it's his turn) By no means he is the only one, but he's definitely a player that teams will look to exploit
  18. Love what Bernie has contributed to the club, but I did notice he struggled to contest the high ball with the lack of spring and also a bit slow to defend the players with excellent agility (both never strong suits of his, but I think he's fallen away even more this season). With the added intensity of finals I think he may struggle more, which is a shame given the experience and stability he would provide
  19. Geelong play Gold Coast in Rd23...in Geelong...186 may be under threat
  20. C'mon Demons, step it up again and hammer it home Based on today JKH, Vanders and Vince to hopefully be replaced by Viney, Melksham and Hibberd respectively
  21. Wow so with Lyons out that makes 4 of their Top 5 in AFL player ratings not playing! http://www.afl.com.au/stats/player-ratings/overall-standings#club/CD_T1000
  22. Behind the goal footage not great for Jones there. Had the chance to pick up Wallis for a while... But go the Dees!! Hammering them this quarter. Go Spargs!!
