    Hitting the post!

    No idea where you would find the stats, but does any team in the comp hit the post more than we do?

    That was one of few things to really annoy me about the game last night... bloody hell we did it a lot...

    Re: Hitting the post!

    My other half actually asked whether I thought the players practiced it. I asked her why on earth would they do that?

    God, love her.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Dennis Commetti mentioned that we hit the post more than any other team a few rounds ago. Last nights effort would've made sure we stayed on top of that ladder I reckon. The best bit was when we played on from advantage and Hill (I think) hit the post, the ball got brought back, and Callan Ward's subsequent shot hit the post in almost exactly the same spot.

    So yeah, they probably do practise it

    Re: Hitting the post!

    Against Geelong we hit the post twice in the last quarter, and with such a close game, it can make the difference.

    Not as silly as it sounds. They do practise hitting a pole at training.

    I always thought they should get extra points if they hit the post. How hard would it be if you intend to do it.

    Was it Gilbert McAdam who first got his AFL gig by rocking up to training, dragging a wheelie bin onto the ground, then filling it with footballs he kicked into it from all sorts of angles & distances?

    Pretty sure it was his brother Adrian who played for North.

    So the answer is to replace goal posyts with wheelie bins?

    Fair talent ot be able to do that.
    Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

    I'd missed this thread previously and assumed that it had been started based on that!

    Very un-Higgins like.
