Renew Darcy Now

Ok, so Darcy Parish is now looking like a bonafide Top 5 draftee. His current contract expires this year and Geelong is sniffing.

Must be a priority to lock him down on a minimum 3 year deal and do it now.

Re: R13 Essendon v Hawthorn

Credit to Windy Hille for sticking tough with Langford...definitely looking more comfortable and importantly confident with being an AFL level footballer. Not in my best 15 but three months ago was not in my best 22.

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

Don’t get me wrong there have been some positive signs in the last 2 games, but.... We are still way off the pace when it comes to taking on the top 4 sides. We don’t have the mental strength to be a consistent top 8 team. The game plan goes to shit when confronted with a quality opponent. Happy to ...

Re: Open Letter to John Worsfold

we are accepting mediocrity once again if we blindly say everything is fine after beating a woeful Carlton and arguably the worst Hawthorn team in more than a decade. We are 6 and 6 with a bog average percentage. We need to win 7 of the last 10 games to just make the finals where we will likely get ...

Apologies to Dylan Clarke who was very good tonight.

Re: 2019 Half Season Report Card

Just want to add one more thought on David Myers. I have been very critical of him for a long time. I just want to state that this has nothing to do with him personally. By all accounts a very much liked team man who has fought hard through constant injury just to reach the highest level of the game...

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly The Good Paddy Ambrose....has gone about his job very impressively and has been without a doubt our quiet achiever. Very rarely lets his opponent off the chain and has been a rock along with Hooker, allowing Hurley to play the sweeping role. Matt Guelfi....for all his boy...

Re: Snelling.

Re: Coaching Dominoes about to Fall

I think had we lost to Carlton, Worsfold would have been lucky to survive. Perhaps Carlton's own saga may have saved him as I am sure the club would not want to be sharing the same bed as Carlton in terms of the optics. Worsfold will survive to the end of the season at least. Failure to make finals ...

Re: Coaching Dominoes about to Fall

Today's win keeps Woosha in a job certainly until the end of the year - which is fair enough on a lot of fronts But failure to make the finals with the players we have brought in, regardless of injuries, will be fatal for John. We have blown three number 1 draft picks to build this squad to compete ...
