    Re: Three things you've learned Round nine 2022 v Collingwood

    1. I watched the game at the Mona Castle, where they had 3 tvs showing the game, all about 5 seconds apart. I learnt that this is a really annoying way to watch football.

    2. Jordon Sweet is not literally the worst ruckman and player in the AFL (whoever those jabronis playing for Collingwood are) but that doesn’t mean I have any confidence in him against Witts next week.

    3. Darcy Moore is kinda bad, can’t go with key forwards of quality and has to resort to cheap shotting them when they’re airborne to have any chance of actually doing his job.

    Another thing, Smith has a problem with kicking goals. It's between the ears. He should have had many more goals. The angle and distance no problem. Lacks composure in front of goals. Hope he can fix it.

    Collingwood are quitters. By the fourth quarter we were jogging around them on the mark.

    Its a very disappointing season, were seeing the effect of that in crowd numbers

    He's so important isn't he? We look so much more solid and reliable with him down back.

    I sat on the top level for the first half and stood on the ground level for the second half. I still think the top level at Marvel is pretty good just a different perspective. i normally have a reserved seat on the ground level. If our supporters drop off now it doesn't bode well for when we invariably slide.

    Excuse me but around here we don't check post histories.

    Also it was legitimately something I learnt!

    1. Our player development is in good hands, almost every player elevated to the seniors during this current glut of injuries has stood up and contributed in some way.

    2. In spite of all the hype surrounding Dunks and his desired defection to the Bumbers, he is still a whole hearted Bulldog on the field.

    3. There are 3 games I desperately want us to win each year. Essendon, Collingwood and GWS. So far we are 2-0, just one more to fill the bucket list. If we can do that then Geelong will be added.

    1. Khamis has got it; natural footballers are gems, especially if they have goal sense!
    2. Sweet is in front of Martin.
    3. Buku is in front of Jamarra.

    1. When we click we can beat any team in the comp. Even Melbourne. But we don't click for long enough sometimes

    2. Bontempelli gives us a sense of calmness that was glaringly missing last week.

    3. I don't like being too negative after a win but McNeil.... I wouldn't be fussed if he never played ones ever again
