  1. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 18, Vs St Kilda

    Lipinski still played 80% gametime which is 1% off his season high. Cant've been too bad.

    I think it would be pretty hypocritical of Beveridge to bail out on the club before the end of his contract, have heard of him being somewhat critical of players when he has caught wind they are...

    I learnt something today (at least I think it's correct). If a ruckman impedes the jump of the other ruckman it is a free against. Explains a lot of freekicks that have otherwise left me baffled in...

    No one good has chosen Carlton as a destination since Judd. They go there for gametime (Marchbank, Docherty, Kennedy), because it's the only club to show serious interest (Pickett, Whiley, Jones) and...

    A few of the lyrics were a bit questionable but the music backing track was phenomenal. Much better than the current backing track.

    Re: Proactive Poaching

    I think they'd ask for a first rounder, but would ultimately go for a 2xsecond rounder trade. Ie. A future second rounder plus a pick in the low 20s.

    Happy with that. Not necessarily an enjoyable game to watch but we nullified them well and most players contributed.

  9. Re: Does Anyone think Naughton should be playing Fullback?

    I was against playing him forward originally, he was already better than most key defenders last season and I had him as AA by 2020. Couldn't see the logic in stealing a genuine gun key defender to...

  19. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    We could start by making sure Caleb Daniel isnt on the mark. I reckon he takes it 80% of the time, even when English is standing 10 metres away. So idiotic.

    Yeah this is my view as well. As long as Bontempelli isn't tagging him then as long as it's somewhat effective i don't care who we put on him.
