  1. Have him back in a heartbeat - would undoubtedly draw the best defender thereby freeing up The Weid & Fritta. (Beside that, the life-size blow up figure with No.1 on his back has been slowly deflating for the past 2 years...)
  2. Good effort from Nathan Jones - as a defensive half-forward, he effectively subdued Crisp (who had 6 inside 50's last week)
  3. Spot on - Greig, Hawkins etc. were routinely bested by Robbie. The only opponent who genuinely 'stopped' him was that talentless oaf, Dipierdomenico, who managed to shatter Robbie's shoulder in the fateful 1987 Preliminary Final. One of football's cruellest of ironies that 'Dipper' collected a Brownlow + multiple Premierships whilst Robbie's cupboard was bare
  4. Grace, courage, artistry, evasiveness - what wonderful memories he generated for the red & blue faithful. Whether it be the jinking runs that mesmerized and befuddled opponents or the long & direct handballs to a teammate with time & space - simply unique
  5. If Jack Martin doesnt get to Carlton, can we get him in the PSD ?
  6. Pretty much sums up our calamitous season that it takes until Rd 16 to get our preferred starting back 6 on the park
  7. Never classified as 'elite' skill-wise, but the composure and calmness that comes from years of experience are surely reasons for giving Nathan a chance to nail down a spot on the HBF. Yes, he will struggle to catch a fleet-footed half-forward, but, as contested 'front half' footy these days seems to be 'flavour of the month', Nathan can be relied upon to put his body on the line when required.
  8. Agree - his initial burst speed is impressive and if he is pursuing an oppo player, you just know it is going to end in a (legitimate) bone-crunching tackle that lifts teammates and makes the opposition wary
  9. Agree - Max really needs some relief this week. Over the past 2 weeks he has rucked 1 out against Witts up on the Gold Coast and then flown across the country to again ruck 1 out against Vardy/Hickey. Let's not burn him out before the bye.
  10. Agree - no one could doubt Jack's commitment BUT if we cannot win against GCS without him then it is well & truly 'goodnight season 2019'. The boy Sparrow apparently went OK for Casey last weekend so give him some interstate exposure to accelrtate his development. As for Keilty, admire his persistence but at this stage he is 'warming the bench' for Preuss or The Bull.
  11. Up against a true ruckman, Frost would undoubtedly be found wanting. Tomorrow, Geelong are putting up Stanley with Ratugolea as relief - neither of them are true ruckmen but both are fast/mobile. Frost would be a fair chance to match them in short bursts when relieving Max
  12. Frost retained = relief/chop out for Max (therefore allow TMac and Weeds to play foward fulltime) ? Alternatively, gives flexibility to allow May to spend some time up forward (which IIRC was one of the 'teasers' that persuaded May to choose us)
  13. Spot on - the composed but intense stare that he gave Duckwood whilst Duckwood was doing his best to rile/provoke Harmes clearly worried the Cats skipper and of course led to the momentum killing free kick in the 3rd quarter
  14. Wonderful news ! - surprised (but delighted )
  15. Jeffy is your classic old-fashioned 'will-o-the-wisp' opportunist small forward. As others have commented, he is simply never going to string together multiple 20+ possession games at Casey - if that is the KPI for his recall he will never play another senior game for us. Jeffy has kicked 300+ goals at senior AFL level - yes, he wil be crap for 5 - 7 games per year and probably just OK for another 9 - 10. BUT, for those other 6 - 8 games, he could well be the difference between winning and losing. Is there any one of us who does not feel a quickening of the heart rate when Jeffy gets 'out the back' and there is nothing but space between him and the goalmouth ? How exhilarating for the fans (and inspiring for his team mates) when he gathers the ball, looks over his shoulder, and just knows that the bloke chasing has Buckley's of being able to catch him ? Question is, will Goodwin and the coaching staff accept the "Curate's egg" offering that Jeffy represents ?
  16. Lachlan Filipovic might be feeling a little bit nervous.....
  17. That's all folks - after the final siren goal to Dolphins. 21.13 to4.9 Pedo & Bugg - 6 each
  18. Dolphins score a point - lead cut to 99 points
  19. Jeffy with a lovely steal and left foot snap for another
  20. Scott again - 2 in a row Very much one-way traffic 92 point lead
  21. Angus Scott runs 1/2 the length of the oval to nail another one after a nice pass from Bugg
  22. Another goal to Munro Clearly the whirlpool is working well....
  23. Bugg runs into the open goal for another one. Building up for a real blowout
