    Re: Proactive Poaching

    The thing is, you don’t know Ollie personally and you don’t know how the passing of his father has impacted him.

    Your earlier comments were dismissive of the suggestion that it could still be a...
  2. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    GC play their GF against a GWS team that doesn’t know how to score in second halves this weekend. Maybe, just maybe, they can pull off one of the upsets of the season and their biggest win since...

    I think you are overlooking that for some there are more important things in life than footy.

  5. Re: The Run Home Rounds 17-23 2019

    Adelaide are actually slightly ahead on percentage. They are 102.988 to Port's 102.975
  6. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    They have been legitimately awful this year and have been made to look better than they are by some very, very unconvincing wins against teams they got at the right time (eg Tigers when they were...

    I am a bit disappointed they won’t be burning the joint down on Bomberblitz (for at least another week) so listening to all of the tears and whinging replace all the back slapping and high fives on...

  9. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    By putting this on I have guaranteed at least one team will lose, which should keep us alive.
  10. Re: The unofficial 2019 "Where is T&T?" who to root for thread

    I don’t usually put on multibets, but when I do they lose. So today I put $10 on an “Everything’s gone to shit” multi (Adelaide, Essendon, Port, and GWS). You’ll thank me later.
  11. Re: WB Game Day V GWS Giants R22 2019

    We kicked a collective 14.5 against Freo and Essendon in the first quarters, and just 1.5 against Brisbane and the Saints. Certainly in the Brisbane game (0.5) we were arguably the better team in...

    18 players out of contract at the end of next year seems bloody scary on paper.

  13. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 22, Vs GWS

    I would underline speed. We are still not flush with players with serious wheels, it is both a defensive and offensive weapon that we need.

    Will be interesting to see if they pick him this week. You’d think if they don’t there is more to it, most likely that he has told them he is gone.

    Re: Dale Morris What a legend

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he decides to pull on a Footscray jumper for a few more years in a Hodge-like player defensive coach role.

    I say give him a rookie spot. At worst he comes back late in...
  18. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 21, Vs Essendon

    Totally agree. Just look at Sam Reid (the GWS variety) who was nothing more than a roommate for Ward when GWS took him.

    Sorry, I meant Bailey Williams. Dropped or otherwise, my point is that two of our quickest players came out of the team that was going head to head with a team known for their speed. It had me...
  23. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 21, Vs Essendon

    Sure his output is down, but Id be interested to see some more off screen footage of his offensive and defensive running.

    His speed is extremely important to a team that is not overly blessed...
  24. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 20, Vs Brisbane

    I am worried that we have crossed that threshold of talls that we can comfortably handle. It feels like Carlton the first time all over again. Say it ain’t so.

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

    I do have concerns about the speed we have lost with both Richards and Williams out. The saints one wood has often been their leg speed.
  37. Re: The official 2017 TandT Who to Root for Thread

    Why not both? Considering our inferior (not likely to make it up) percentage I think the best result for us is actually a draw.

    A draw is as good as a loss for both teams (for us).
