    I agree, he’s a harder body than Lippa, and the thing that gripes me more about Lippa than anything is his inability to hold a tackle.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    1 we are the champions.
    2 McNeil is better than I thought; soon he will be a good pass.
    3 Cody is as good as I hoped.

    1/ Bailey Smith belongs in the middle
    2/ Libba also belongs in the middle
    3/ Games can be won from the coaches box.

    1. Weightman is actually pretty not bad and his enthusiasm for footy is infectious. Really want him to stick in the side from now on.

    2. YHF on the reds is the best poster on the forum.

    I didn't learn anything else. We're good as hell and the deepest and most talented team in it but I already knew that.

    1. When we kick 15.6, we win against Port Adelaide in Adelaide, when if we kicked 6.15 we would have lost.
    2. When we kick 7.13, we lose against Richmond at the MCG when if we kicked 13.7 we would have won.
    3. We are a very good team, that is not at its peak, yet.

    1. Whether you think they should be in the side weekly or not, to pick up McNeil and Scott in the rookie draft and supplementary respectively is a huge effort from the recruiting team.

    2. Naughton and Bruce are on track to kick 66 and 54 respectively. Of course, this relies on them keeping this pace and not missing games - but even 10 less each - 56 and 44 - this is the return we've been craving.

    3. Libba. In important ground ball moments, i've been saying the words "its ok....Libba is there" for a lot of the last 31 years. Extraordinary player(s).

    I'm really hoping that the investment that has been placed in them pays off at the business end of the season.

    1. Weightman belongs in this team

    2. We would lose games like this in 2019 and 2020. Not in 2021.

    3. Port 2021 remind me of the Dogs 2008 - 2010. Good side which beats the teams below them, but has trouble with the pressure from teams above them.

    1. Weightman, everything that needs to be said has been said
    2. Libba, AA this year, maybe our B&F winner too... Smokey for Brownlow?
    3. We can beat top 4 sides on their home deck

    1. R Smith is better than I gave him credit for and his game on saturday went a long way to helping us win;

    2. Weightman is a great small forward, with a good leap, quick feet, nice hands. Could he be our answer to a Toby Green? Can see him being someone other clubs will love to hate;

    3. Libba's hands are insanely quick....its like watching quantum physics in action - he moves the ball through time and space in the blinnk of an eye

    1. Best interstate win since the 2016 EF against the Wiggles
    2. Peter Sweet is a presence. Hoping he continues the upward trend. We need him to achieve both for him and for English.
    3. Warwick Capper on insta said Astro is his favourite player and he rolled out the classic line 'This is air traffic control Aaron Naughton you are clear to land'.
