    Re: Delisting and Retirements - 2021

    There’s certainly been questionable list mgt decisions made over the last 3-4 years.

    Re: Best 22 for 2022

    Not keen on the Fox Footy team, especially the backline as we can't show up with the one we had in the GF and expect it will get it done.

    Whilst the names in the midfield look good I'm very keen...

    We fully expected Ayce to be our first selection at that draft and planned for that to be the case.

    Wallis doesn't have the same skill set as Boyd so it's a big no from me.

    Re: On the day - The CBD conundrum.

    Treloar was in there a fair bit, well a fair but compared to the 2 previous finals, but really surprised to read that Dunks only had 3 CBA's.

    If Dunks isn't in there crashing bodies I'm not sure...

    Has Cox ever played as a number 1 ruck for an extended period?

    Re: Well Ruck Me.

    You would think Jones has at least another 2 years left in him so Young is going to have to bide his time unless Carlton think they can play him along with Jones & Weitering.

    Re: Lets make the hard calls

    But instead of starting directly on the wing come into the centre from a position closer to our defence.. it might not change much, but it might mean the opposition have to move laterally rather than...

    Re: Lets make the hard calls

    I hear this a lot, but why does nothing change?

    How hard would it have been for the wings (to which Hunter is one) to take up a sweeper position at the end of the 3rd qtr to ensure Melbourne...

  14. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread - 2021 AFL Grand Final vs Melbourne

    I would think that is more to do with where the ball is rather than players not knowing to come off.
  15. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread - 2021 AFL Grand Final vs Melbourne

    Because runners were staying on the ground longer than what was needed and plugging up gaps on the field.

    Re: Lets make the hard calls

    I don't think we can play either them if we still want to play Williams, Dale, Daniel & Duryea in that zone. We need more height & intercepting capabilities.

    If we don't add any ready-made...

    The comparison with Hawthorn is fair, but they didn't have underage talent like JUH & Darcy to deal with which chews up trade currency.

    Pretty sure Duryea was on Pickett for large parts, but it's hard to know when watching on TV.

    Pickett created a couple of goals though with his pressure on Truck forcing him to make a crucial...

    Re: Lets make the hard calls

    It all sounds good & well, but both Treloar & Smith aren't exactly known for their ability to defend. They run well with the ball in hand, but get lost when defending.

    Agree with the call on...
  21. Re: Bankers & Anchors: Grand Final edition, 2021 vs Melbourne

    Bankers:

    - Bont & Treloar - sparked us into gear in the 2nd qtr.
    - Roarke - he's a limited player, but you know whet you're going to get from him. Solid performance from him.

    Anchors:

    Yep… that was a big moment.

    The 15-20sec of play that led to the Brayshaw goal was crucial too. The Daniel kick along the ground, the Petracca throw and then the hack kick that went to Brayshaw....

    Everything has gone their way and once it’s over it’s hard to keep giving the same level of effort.

    Pickett & Spargo nothing either.. hard game for little blokes.
  32. Re: Melbourne V Western Bulldogs - 2021 Grand Final Thread

    Not to use it as an excuse, but missed frees to Schache and against Trac for a throw which led to the Brayshaw were huge.

    That was a car crash of a 1st qtr… timid, fumbling, no structure. Long way to go, but we need some composure to come along quickly.
