    Question Three things you've learned. Round nine 2021 v Port Adelaide

    Alright. Tell us three things that you know now that you didn't know this afternoon.
    Our *three* weapons are fear, and surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again

    1. Cody has all the tools. Jump, speed, pressure, tackling, basic shots, electric snaps.
    2. Cordy was pretty solid today. If he nailed those i50’s he would have had a good night.
    3. That was a very mature win.
    4. Sweet is going to make it.
    5. Hannan has one more week to get fit and impact. One goal in three games while say Wallis is not doing much isn’t enough.
    6. JJ forward tonight worked for the most part.
    7. Treloar needs to cover middle stump better. He needs to get help from Keath.
    Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

    1. Cody Weightman might be a natural small key forward... but he exhibited some good small forward craft too tonight.
    2. Naughts can kick straight, and it really, really is important when he does.
    3. Williams is no longer a developing player. We missed him, and now he's back.

    1. When teams come at us we can dig deep and grind out a win
    2. We have depth - no English, Dunks, Hunter , Vandemeer, Gardner - four players < 10 games
    3. Cody Weightman will become an important player to us. He won’t kick a bagful every week but he is an x-factor that we need. Plus his enthusiasm can only be a positive

    1. Weightman has the x-factor that we need from a small forward.

    2. Williams was badly missed, came out and had a great showing.

    3. McNeil has a lot going for him that is worth persisting with. Just need to tell him to take a ping when running into 50 and there are loose defenders.

    1, watching Weightman interviewed, he talks with a huge smile. Which makes you smile. I love that kind of personality.
    2. Smart footy late. Killing the clock and Bruce dropping back in the hole and taking a big contested mark.
    3. 15 Goals, 6 Behinds. Three of them posters. We are getting better.

    1. Weightman was brilliant and could be a huge X factor for us, especially in big games.

    2. Sweet definitely has a bit to work with. Good job - Ladhams is one I actually rate too.

    3. This team can win the premiership.
    Sam Power is my religion.

    1. 2 X Kings is not even in the same ball park to one Austronought.
    2. We can still win, but our forward press really needs work.
    3. Wonderful to win after celebrating World Whiskey Day with several drams.
    4. SLAINTE
    5. We are the real thing.
    The Men Of Mayhem are back and will not be ignored.

    1. Discipline. In previous weeks we gave down field or behind the ball frees, VDM gave multiple 50’s this year, remonstrating and reversing free kicks or mouthing off at umpires. None of that tonight, and I don’t know how most of our guys held their shit together with public corruption in fluro yellow. This was a focused, disciplined team absolutely tonight and I’m not sure I’ve seen it this good.

    2. Williams, Dale & Daniel will give a howler every now and then. But they’re completely next level as a group.

    3. I’m not sure I’ve seen Keath make one mistake this year.

    Oddly enough, Darryl White was lamenting the Bulldogs lack of an X- Factor player on AFL Nation pre game.

    1. Sweet will be a a very handy ruckman. Stefan Martin bought him some development time.
    2. Our bottom 6 are playing their role superbly.
    3. Naughton still hasn't found his ceiling.

    Bonus: Port Adelaide fans seem to think the visiting team should not be allowed free kicks at all.

    I think the club has held their nerve with Sweet superbly. He's not come in and performed like a timid performer. He's held his own, and all of a sudden if he can build from this, English up forward has long term legs, beyond Martin's time.

    Did you hear Bevo talk about Sweet in his press conference, it was hilarious.

    When they were checking in at the airport, Bevo was scanning his boarding pass, and at the other scanner a woman was scanning hers. Sweet was behind the woman, and Bevo turned around and said Hi Sweetie, and the woman thought Bevo was talking to her
