  1. Surely ANB, Spargo & Sparrow are all under a cloud as their recent form is scratchy. Our small fwds in particular are not going well ATM.
  2. Could see him replacing Spargo as a small defensive fwd.
  3. Yes its got to stop but it won't as long as people can post anonymously. Its time that people were required to put their real names on social media accounts.
  4. Lets hope Cripps gets booed every time he goes near the ball for the rest of the year.
  5. Still can't work out all the outrage. Everyone knew it was a total disaster 3-4 years ago. Only some of the details are new. Imagine if someone released unknown embarrassing details about the MFC merger & everyone got into a huff & started demanding enquiries & apologies. I'm sure Eddies book has sold well.
  6. Another game where our fwd strategy looked confused & is anyone actually working on kicking techniques?
  7. An apology for promoting violence would have been better...and Sunshine - you sound like a villain from an old episode of The Bill.
  8. Think u are the only poster that's mentioned Eddie has a book to sell & him or the publishers might be milking things. The Crows camp was a [censored] show & has already been well documented.
  9. The head of Canberra's TAFE has just been stood down for paying $millions to a training organisation for awareness & transformative cultural change. TAFE could not provide a coherent statement explaining what was actually delivered. Maybe it was the same mob that ran the Crows camp.
  10. I agree. I reckon Goodie has stamped his papers which is unfair because he has played better footie than some who have got games this year.
  11. Thats nonsense. For some reason the BT have put a line through Baker & have ignored him despite excellent form at Casey & being a player with genuine speed. He was given one game last year & despite 15 touches was then dropped. Baker, Dunstan & Chandler should have all been given more opportunities this year when Spargo, Jordon& ANB have played poorly. I predict he will go to another club & play senior football.
  12. Did you actually watch the game ? Martin dominated & kept the dogs in the game.
  13. You cannot be serious ? Ellison started really well but has struggled the last month and Bell is barely at VFL reserves standard. He can't kick, mark or handball so yes lets draft him.
  14. And lets take an opportunity to restart the culture wars. That comment makes as much sense as Trump's bleach advice.
  15. That's not quiet correct. Try sticking to the facts which are on the public record. He suggested Daisy let Carey get a word in. Then he also suggested networks were employing women on the basis of their gender not their ability. I guess its matter of taste. There have always been good & dreadful commentators. I like Daisy. Rex is even worse than BT.
  16. Well all thatp means is that he is an accurate kick not that he is all that well versed in forward craft. Maybe he is a decent fwd coach - I don't know but I'd have thought it was a specialist position. Everyone seems to agree that our fwd line isn't working as well as other areas. When we keep banging away high balls that don't work & when our big fwds all lead to the same square metre of ground who is at fault ?
  17. Maybe but I recall most of his kicks were 20 m out & mainly directly in front. I still maintain that our fwd line for most of this year & 2 thirds of last year has been pretty shambolic.
  18. He has been generally average to solid at Casey. Maybe its compensation for the May incident.
  19. I'm not bagging him just thinking that u probably need to have been a fwd to coach the fwd line. Would u appoint Nev Jetta or Nat Jones as ruck coach ? The fact that individual players have done well is good but as a group it still aint working. The fwds lead to the same place & get in each others way. Spargo pressures well but his crumbing is poor. If nobody marks it then the opposition sweeps it away easily. When we do well & win as in the GF its because of ruck & midfield dominance & our defence being on top, its rarely due to our fwd line.
  20. Its also a fwd line that struggled for half of 2021. In the last 6 weeks it has mainly struggled in the second half of games. Often BBB, Max & Fritter all lead to the same spot & last week Geelong defenders had very little pressure applied to them.
  21. Greg was a run of the mill ruckman & I was very surprised he got the fwd coach job. Seems like a nice guy but I'd have thought that u need to have played a lot of footy in a good forward line to get the gig. Maybe a Sav Rocca or Stevie J or P Sumich. I think our fwd line has been mostly dysfunctional since he took over.
  22. He should play for free given he barely played for 2 seasons. He failed to deliver a flag for the Swans & it meant they offloaded Toby Nankervis, Mumford & Mitchell to meet their salary cap. Gives away frees & carries on like a sook when they don't pass the ball to him.
  23. Sadly Geelong seemed to be the team taking risks & using creative kicks to open up play. Melbourne looked like a tired old Geelong side of 2021 doing the same stuff for no results.
