    I might be reading too much into it, but when Burke put the ‘professionalism’ into the public domain this year, I think it may have fractured the group. These things are better handled behind closed doors. I was not surprised at all to see him go.

    Agree that wouldn't have gone down well with the team.
    He walked it back, however the damage was done.

    The game plan?

    I actually have some sympathy for him here. If you can't get the ball - and if you do get it, you can't actually kick it to a team-mate, well, what possible game-plan could be effective? Couple that with a group of players who had a pretty low interest in defending off the ball...well...

    The comments about professionalism should have been kept inside the room but did the players seem physically prepared to play footy? This can't be answered with a "well, if we were full-time" response...first you become professional in your actions, THEN you are paid as such. It doesn't work the other way around.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    From Cranston's interview on Danny/Boyd, the game plan seemed stagnant at best and non-existent at worst.

    Wow that's a fair indication Burke wasn't the right guy.

    I'm pretty stoked with this one too; especially for all that has gone awry with our women's football program of recent years.

    Zimmi was originally from my son's local jnr football club the Calamvale Leopards in Brisbane. She's a lovely girl too and all at the club were so proud of her debut game with the Lions.

    As an aside my son Joshua (10 yrs old ) is about to move clubs next season though.....its tough for jnr footy in Brisbane. There are the few big clubs that seem to hoover up the kids (one local team has 9 under 8's teams regularly each season!!) whilst smaller clubs just wither.

    Josh would've played his 50th game for the club this year, but broke his finger in two places and missed 8 weeks, so was left stranded on 46 games. Whilst he was disappointed to not get to 50 games with Calamvale this year, it was not enough for him to entertain playing another season with them...its such a shame. Lovely club, but the club has trouble getting numbers, and its almost reached a terminal point unfortunately AFLQ need to do something for junior footy up here in SEQ. Otherwise pretty soon it will just be maybe the massive clubs that are around.

    The minimum the players should be doing is hitting targets. Can't stand the way they just bang the ball on their foot to no one. Very frustrating to watch. I guess it comes down to decision making

    Which is one of the reasons I am not overly concerned about losing Lynch. She's good in the contest, but her disposal is shocking and only seemed to be getting worse. We could do with somebody a lot more reliable with ball in hand.
    Crumbs!

    Daisy Pearce to coach West Coast, I wonder if we sounded her out?

    Also:

    Gold Coast vice-captain Bess Keaney is also set to leave Queensland and head to Essendon for family reasons, while defender Lauren Ahrens has chosen a move to the Western Bulldogs.

    Looks like Lamb officially to port Adelaide.
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    Kirsty? Oh crikey. Wow... I'm surprised she's heart and soul with Ellie.

    However, Lamb ? a premiership player for the Bulldogs in 2018 and an All-Australian and best-and-fairest winner at the club in 2022 (season six) ? has opted to take up an offer from the Power and is set to move in the coming days

    I read on BF that she has family connections with Port and actually barracks for them!

    Gould and Prowse are likely to stay at Adelaide (according to Riley Beveridge), surprise, surprise. There are three days remaining of the trade period, but this off season is looking very much like an overall disaster.

    Pray Ellie stays.
