  1. Three of them played in premierships and another won three Brownlow medals. Three of them were captains on the day their clubs won a premiership. I'd suggest that the burden didn't weigh them down and that they were the right person for the job. My choice ? Trengove - and only Trengove.
  2. Excellent post. And at their best I really enjoyed watching their contested footy. The best H&A game I've ever seen (no exaggeration) was the Saints versus Geelong in round 14, 2009. Both sides came into the match undefeated and the Saints won by a goal and if my memory serves me correctly Michael Gardiner kicked the winning one. The Saints won their first 19 games that year.
  3. Explain why it's not credible and provide a scientific journal that supports your view that there is no adverse effects on a child.
  4. Green is a poor captain and I'd remove him at year's end, but you don't disrespect the office. It's not about Green. It was a poor decision. Another one in a long line.
  5. Gameplans are always evolving. What got them to 3 grand finals won't get them to another. He's smart enough to know that. If he's good enough he's malleable and if he's malleable I think he's good enough.
  6. You don't make your captain the sub under any circumstances.
  7. "I've heard it too, but the key phrase here is "all but confirmed." I don't trust the AFL as far as I could throw them, in these matters, and I wouldn't have thought you would either." I have no reason to disbelieve him. The criteria is heavily weighted on the age of the player and the remuneration they've been offered. Those two factors all but guarantee two first rounders. "Funny though, cos I recall a thread some time ago where you rubbished another poster's opinion that they'd trade Scully straight up for David Swallow in a heartbeat." Me rubbish another posters opinion ? That's a str
  8. Adrian Anderson has all but confirmed that Melbourne would receive two first round draft picks. I heard the interview.
  9. You're missing the point. Not that I necessarily agree, but the care factor for Scully leaving has gone from extreme to moderate, or less.
  10. Yes it's self-indulgent. Call me self-indulgent.
  11. Bump. It's a thread worth revisiting. Some of us were concerned about the lack of defence in Bailey's gameplan and some wanted to constantly make excuses, or simply didn't have a great grasp on all things football. I suspect a bit of both. This article confirms the views of some of us and may embarrass others. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/demons-build-on-defensive-tactics/story-e6frf9jf-1226118364174 "TODD Viney doesn't shy from the fact his short-term plan for the Demons is diametrically opposed to that chosen by Dean Bailey." No-one said that there was no defence under Bailey, o
  12. That makes two if us. Read my sig. Your absence will make for fairer debate. You've always appreciated the power of the written word on the internet, which is why you manipulated debate under different guises. You didn't do it for the fun of it. It was calculated to be 'pro' whatever the club did. And Black Duck was on the old forum in about 2003 for about 2 weeks. Good one. Ciao comrades.
  13. I share an innocuous text message about his first half and some supporters go into a 'spin' about a seemingly disparaging analysis. I'm yet to hear about his second half, although I probably will in the Bullring after the game, but I won't bother sharing it. Better things to do. The kid will be a bona fide gun.
  14. I wouldn't expect you to say anything different, now would I ? Our inability to stop teams when they have a 'run on' and our capacity to produce quarters like the one against Hawthorn, and the first quarter against West Coast - where we conceded something like 20 inside 50's, tells the story of a side that doesn't have great disciplines and structures in place. You think that's ok, because we'll get those apsects right in time, whilst I reckon some of our insipid performances have reflected poorly on the coaching staff and our organisation on the field. Jim Stynes joining the FD suggest th
