    Re: Essendon

    Beating Geelong would be unbelievably cathartic. I never thought I'd say this after the agonies of 97 and 98 but Adelaide just seem like another team to me these days, with my loathing centred on GWS...

    Re: WB Game Day V Melbourne R19 2021

    That is definitely a surprising stat as I thought that was an area we excelled. There was a contest in the centre where both Bont and Macrae literally ripped the ball from Dees’ players’ hands. It...

    I loved the fact that at various stages Caleb, Jack Macrae, and then Bont were BOG. Bont cruised past them like the luxury vehicle he is in the last, it the other two were sensational as well....
  5. Re: The Moment: Round 19, 2021 vs Melbourne

    The moment was whatever we did to stabilise and then counter punch, hard, when they stormed out of the middle twice in the first minutes of the third quarter. That was very mature, somehow we were...

    I am so thrilled with this win. Gutsy, brave, against the odds.

    I’d like to know how many smothers we had. We were 2016-style with that ability to stifle the ball in close.

    Not that we really...

    It’s not just the ins, is it, it’s overall team balance. We will soon find out.

    I’m baffled. I get that we’re trying to avoid May and Lever mark everything. But with the wet what happens when the ball hits the deck.

    Oh for a zippy half forward… I’d have much preferred McNeil...
  11. Re: Always Right Match Committee - Round 19 Vs Melbourne 2021

    I think JJ had the role last time and Salem did relatively little.

    If we are at our best we have a couple of springboards for ball movement that THEY should be worried about - the Baileys, and (to...

    I really wish we weren’t playing them right now with our injury list and the group looking tired, as if they win they get a psychological boost.

  18. Re: Always Right Match Committee - Round 18 Vs Gold Coast Suns 2021

    Regarding Young, I can understand the arguments about him not meeting KPIs and that we don’t know what these are, but I think these must be much harder to meet and measure for a player that played 3...

    1. Surprisingly given how it felt on the day, we won contested possessions. I will leave it to more seasoned observers to analyse what that means…my take was they chipped, chipped, chipped … we still...
  21. Re: Three things you've learned. Round seventeen 2021 v Swans of Sydney

    We were near a passage of play where Caleb had the ball, Duryea was clear and a good next option, but instead, he kicked to a pack and the ball inevitably ricocheted back in.
  22. Re: WB Game Day V Sydney Swans R17 2021

    I thought there were danger signs last week. Hopefully this is a match which rekindles the desire and reminds our team how easily things can slip.

    I did think we were flat. When even Cody...

    Liam had - and has - great marking prowess, he’s by no means just a Gardner style punch-the-ball-away-safely player. He really looked like a prospect early on, but was inconsistent, and other parts...

    Jackson sweated on that like one of the seagulls, seeming to know Bont would win it.

    There were children enticing the seagulls by offering them chips while their mums encouraged them and filmed it on their phones. Bizarre.

    It just feels right, and natural. Much though I despise them, I can hope for a GWS win for strategic reasons. I can never do the same for the Bombres. Maybe you have to have stood in the Windy Oval...
