    That's the game plan, but having said that if they knew it was going to be dump kick all day long the forwards should have adjusted and push their defenders up 10-15 meters than their normal position as dump kicks usually fall that much shorter.

    Welcome Darcy Fogarty, AFC Pick 12 in the 2017 draft!

    Wasn't there news out of the Crows that Fogarty was practicing playing down back in preseason? I also remember him playing there in some AFL games last year. He is a good mark and natural footballer who read the play well and is actually reasonably quick in the first few steps and elusive.

    That's the system they are instructed to play, play from behind.

    Don Pyke, coaching means being involved during the game

    Does anyone know whether or not it was Pyke's instruction to dump kick the ball down the line when pressured? What happen to the short 15 meter kick we were supposedly practicing all preseason and in the JLT games to counter this so we can reset so ours forwards to get into a poor position with...

    I thought that's why we were practicing those short 15m kick preseason when under pressure to allow us to control the football when teams do that to us to give us time to setup instead of the dump kick down the line.

    Not sure why he was playing as a small forward, he is an old fashion hard-nut tagger.

    Autopsy Bad, Ugly, and Horrendous vs Hawks

    Correct, the forwards don't play in front as our game style isn't built around it, it's based around players running towards goal with precision and fast football movement and if the forwards get a few metre head start, it's a certain goal. But if we dump kick down the line due to frontal...

    Autopsy Bad, Ugly, and Horrendous vs Hawks

    I disagree, we are as strong as West Coast on and off the field but they took their chances when they had to win the premiership, i.e. won a Grand Final by 1 point (with rumors of being "juice" up during that period) and another Grand Final without having to play the best Vic team in Richmond...

    Plan B was the short 15m kick that we practice all preseason to allow us to control the ball giving the players time to spread forward not boom it down the line with the team not in position......where was it???

    Autopsy Bad, Ugly, and Horrendous vs Hawks

    That was the whole point of practicing that short 15m kick new game plan in the preseason was to negate the in your face pressure that the Hawks has been beating us with.....where did that go?

    Game Day Adelaide v Hawks on the fork - Adelaide Oval, 4:05pm Sat March 23

    I wouldn't call Wingard and Polec "deadwood"......and they had a good win against an underdone Melbourne team who had heaps of preseason surgeries to key players, I would have prefer to play them at the MCG then Hawks at home.
