Re: Who's on modified training?

If Hooksey and TBC are iffy for this week but OK for the final, why the f*** would you even consider considering them for the Pies??

Re: c*** nominations

I`d like to nominate Jofra (stupid name) Archer the west indian/come pommie fast bowler. Not for hitting Smith, but for his demeanour immediately after, turning round and walking back to his mark. I`ve seen many batsmen hit over the years, and normally the first person to check on the welfare of th...

Re: Myths

If Essendon was a racehorse, they would have been swabbed and disqualified for the previous two weeks performances. These were not just 3 or 4 goal losses, but absolute thrashings. Also, these defeats were off the back of successive wins, a couple of which were outstanding. Then, we go Interstate, n...

Re: Vale Graham Polly Farmer

Fortunate to have seen him play esp. in the ‘63 Granny. Polly’s idea of a centre break was to grab the ball at the centre break and hand ball it 40 metres to an inflight Goggin who would bury it in Wade’s guts on the lead. He changed the whole concept of ruck work and was a revelation when he came t...

Re: Big Bad Mitchboy Brown

Would be real handy if he could also hold a mark. I have never seen a player that gets both hands to the ball and spills the mark. I think the Laverde experiment has almost finished.

Short Memory

...or should I say, "No F'kn Memory" Yes, I was the idiot who suggested that if we win by 80 points we would displace the Woods. FMD!!! How many times have we been in this position we have done the hard yards, beaten teams above us and then done everything we can to lose to a cellar dweller. Rather ...

Re: Ruckman

I have stated earlier that the "modern" rucks are those who get the taps, but also pick up 17-20 possessions and lay 5-6 tackles. Grundy, Gawn, Marshall, O'Brien are the way... The more I think about it, the more I am leaning toward Daniher as our 2020 ruck (with support from Draper). Don't forget ...

Ruckman

Having seen our makeshift ruck department consisting of Smack, Hooker, Stringer, Hartley and anyone else standing close to the ballup/throw in, you start to question the value of dedicated ruckmen. With obviously superior ruckmen, Adelaide's mids were pantsed whereas we got plenty out of the aforeme...

Re: Missing players

If Daniher is fit, he's in. His absence has been great for Smack and Brown though. They're taken their chances well. Stewart is the one to miss out. Hartley did well. He should stay on, but if he had an offer from somewhere where he'd get more senior games then he'd be crazy not to go. Hartley was ...

No Snelling??
No mention in the initial match report.

With Hurley injured, Hooker sore, maybe Hartley and this bloke come into contention?
Brandon Zerk-Thatcher read the ball aptly in defence.
Like the idea of Hartley coming in for Hurls if need be
