  1. Re: The misfiring mids cruelling the Dogs' finals chances

    Ouch. Maybe Bont read it pre-game and his kicking confidence nosedived further.

  3. Re: WB FightBack30 V Melbourne R17 2019

    I feel certain the coaches would have been happy with Roarke’s game. I don’t know if he will make it longer-term, but he is still very young in terms of experience, and those two goals were like...
  4. Re: Doggies Top 3 Greatest Upsets 2000-2019

    I thought it was a game where Liam Jones arrived too. The line between making it or not is so very fine.
  5. Re: Doggies Top 3 Greatest Upsets 2000-2019

    The names who played well...Jones, Minson, Griffen... Tutt!!! ....surprised me. it’s fascinating how much turnover there was and yet the bones of the 2016 flag were there I guess. It seems much...
  6. Re: Doggies Top 3 Greatest Upsets 2000-2019

    One I remember fondly is mid season vs The Pies, 2014. We were rank outsiders. An article had been written saying our club was ‘irrelevant.’ We had been playing unwatchable footy. Thing were grim....

    Re: WB Game Day V Geelong R16 2019

    Yep, you nailed it. And Taxpayer Funded Stadium has exorbitant seat prices, plus a fortress atmosphere where they get far more than their fair share of frees. No wonder Ablett and Selwood were...

  9. Re: Is this the competition's most underrated player?

    Underrated and unobtrusive are almost always in sentences about Jackson. He is a gem, and he may be under appreciated by those outside the club but watching him every week is a real pleasure.
  10. Re: The English patient: Tall ruck wages a battle to bulge

    Really? That’s harsh. Lane and Cometti are both callers more than journalists. Shaun Carney is mainly a political writer. I thought the article was ok in giving us a sense of Tim the person.
  11. Re: When things arenít always as they seem

    I wonder if Geelong’s accuracy is linked to their home ground advantage.

    Re: WB Game Day V Carlton R13 2019

    The emotion of footy is such that it always seems this game, this season, this quarter is THE worst we’ve ever experienced. I wrote in my blog that when I thought Carlton would win, it felt like it...
  13. Re: Three things you have learned round 13 2019 v Carlton.

  16. Re: Three things you have learned round 13 2019 v Carlton.

    It is clear though that our game plan is overly focused on getting the ball in Daniel’s hands. He is a neat but far from penetrating kick. Dinky little kicks, or wheeling round a few times to find a...

    Re: WB Game Day V Carlton R13 2019

    Charlie Curnow had five frees and a 50m penalty. I’m not sure how many of his frees resulted in goals but I’d be pretty pleased if Aaron Naughton or Bont got the same largesse.
  18. Re: Bankers and Anchors: Rnd 13, 2019, vs Carlton

    1. Dunkley was immense.
    2. The English - Bont combination work early on was quite wonderful. Poetry.
    3. We won. And lately that doesn’t happen too much, and it’s a helluva lot better than the...

  27. Re: It's been a tough season so far in 2019 but........

    . Billy Gowers might be the worst player in the AFL – his continued selection is so bizarre it’s almost suspicious.

    This line makes ME suspicious that this has been written by one of Gowers’...
  28. Re: When things arenít always as they seem

    I don’t think he was the ‘main change’ though of course a significant one. The staggering change is not the loss of one coach, surely it is that NINE premiership players are gone.
