  1. If mays hammy is iffy, but plays, I think a spare defender (smith or hunt) would be more likely/ smarter especially with ports fast small forwards 🤷‍♂️.
  2. Good points, bold my thoughts :). Sorry everyone for blabbing on about a past test that means nothing now.
  3. I commented on this at the time and can't prove anything, but i 100% (money back guarantee :P) sure that that the sprint time recorded was an error. Either the tester recorded someone else's score in his place or he was allowed to start a meter back and had built up a bit of velocity when he crossed the start line and timing started (this then leads to a much quicker 20m time as it's the first few steps that are the slow point). Gary Rohan and Lewis jetta who were both drafted as an explosive and quick player had best 20m sprint times of 2.93 and 2.95 and they are much much faster than Brayshaw. I just want people to stop looking at a number and using it as a fact when blind freddie can see that it's an error (it's like someone swapped jayden hunts sprint time around with Brayshaw and now everyone thinks hunts slow - anyone can see that Hunts fast, but if i pull out a stat saying Hunts sprint time is 3.3 seconds over 20m it doesn't make me right). Further, it's hard to break the 3 second barrier, 2.9 is ridiculously fast and would go to the top 1% of players in the AFL for speed (if he had that he would be a completely different footballer than we see on the field - think chase down tackles, sprinting away with ease from opponents, etc.)
  4. Depends what we define as panic? Form as a team = have been worried for weeks. keeping top 2 = Yes, panic as i can't see us keeping it unless we completely change something and that spark is hit. keeping a top 4 spot = yes (as poster above alluded too, all the teams around us have easy draws and we play most of the top 8 teams... so we can make our own history, but i see us loosing most of current form). Making finals = no panic - disappointment that we are not 2 wins higher.
  5. I don't really think we are fast, more we are now making fast decisions and have the endurance base to run teams off their feet, rather than being a team of fast runners with a high top running speed. I think it's Hunt, picket >> daylight>>> petracca and the rest fall in around here (I think May is pretty fast too and Hibberd looks like he could be).
  6. Haven't read, but i thought i saw somewhere someone say ~$800k for ALice springs game and if a big crowd ~$2mil for Queens bday :(
  7. I'm 36 and i struggle to watch us live now that we are doing well because i expect perfection and hate errors (get angry etc.), yet when we were [censored] i would watch every second and had 0 temper. Doesn't make sense :(
  8. Regarding Harmes, i don't want him back in as i'm not sure currently he makes us any better. Maybe he does, i think he was best as a tagger, but viney is doing that role, so could he come in fora Jones? I'm sure he will be back soon regardless!
  9. Yea why risk it. The news has reported on people testing negative overseas, hoping on a plane to melb or NZ and when of testing positive. I doubt that would happen here, but i'd prefer to not risk it with our team.
  10. Fritsch BBrown Jackson Spargo Weid Melksham Not much pressure being applied. Not sure we can fit all of ANB, Tmac, Pickett and Jones in. I'd almost say Tmac is playing better/more consistent than Weid really ever has, so is our best team might actually be: Fritsch BBrown Jackson Spargo TMac Melksham With Picket and ANB rotating through to apply more pressure (Jones and Weid are emergencies moving forward).
  11. I worry about forward pressure moving forward. Melk in for sparrow and our pressure dropped a little. Mitch brown in for fritsch and similar i'd say (don't think Fritsch is really a pressure forward). So if Brown and Weid come back i was wondering where TMAC goes that doesn't further reduce our pressure and speed around the ground. I believe the obvious solution is Jones's position (not this week - he gets 300 regardless of how crap hes playing). But afterwards i'd say who would you prefer? Jones who is not tall, slow and is according to our 2021 stats page on Demonland the worst player on the ground against Hawthorn by a fair margin or Tmac? Currently, i would say Tmac and i'd play him in Jones' position/ or on the wing (making Brayshaw go into Jones' position). Jones could also go sub moving forward as another option.
  12. I'd like to see us keep the same structure we have been running with (think tigers, one out and replace with a similar "soldier" lol), so May will be back and hes a tall, so replace with a tall = Petty. That way tomilson and lever can play their same roles, rather than one going to main tall etc. when first 4 rounds didn't play it. I'd also avoid moving a player from back to forward for this same reason (i.e. Hunt from back forward). But less sure on Fritsch replacement (hearing people say brown because of his leading patterns, so guess go with that and will give us an insight to other Brown being back as an extra tall.
  13. I think we have been on the favouring end for most rounds this year, so was bound to turn at some time. See what happens!
  14. We are 16th for inside 50 rate from kick ins: https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-news-2021-champion-data-index-kick-in-record-stats-kick-ladder-jake-lloyd-jack-ziebell/news-story/6d73493dbc067eea06db75fcd5d3e2f5. Sitting 4-0 means it's probably not that big a deal, but would be a stat that would be nice if we could improve on (we are probably more of a forward half pressure/turnover score team anyway and so far most teams haven't scored much against us anyway). 1. Sydney Swans: 37.3% 2. Geelong Cats: 31.4% 3. North Melbourne: 29.4% 4. Port Adelaide: 27.5% 5. Fremantle: 27.5% 6. Gold Coast Suns: 25.5% 7. Hawthorn: 25.5% 8. West Coast Eagles: 23.5% 9. GWS Giants: 21.6% 10. Adelaide Crows: 21.6% 11. St Kilda: 19.6% 12. Essendon: 17.6% 13. Carlton: 17.6% 14. Western Bulldogs: 17.6% 15. Brisbane Lions: 13.7% 16. Melbourne: 13.7% 17. Collingwood: 11.8% 18. Richmond: 7.8%
  15. Last year didn't everyone think that Melk was Goodwins love child because he was never dropped no matter how poor he played? aka if he is, it's almost guaranteed that he comes back in this week regardless of the fact that the team is working really well together.
