    General Bombers Talk Non-Essendon Football Thread XIV

    Yep, it's going to hurt. Looks to be in a good place though. Could be the difference for the Lions tilt at a flag if he stays fit. Still gutted he is not with us but he might silence the doubters & those who hated him cos Essendon. I always like to see ex Bombers doing well even if it does sting.

    Training 2021 Preseason Training - Intra-club training report and highlights video in post #266

    Agree, then they will bring in another rule to counteract the new one! We are quickly becoming the most over officiated game in the world. and too many open to interpretation.

    The Sensible Rule Changes Required

    Also, NRL players rarely whinge at the decisions, so much more respect as there is less interpretation to worry about. I like the 16 a side. Do that and get rid of ruck nomination and just throw the ball up straight away. No need to wait for every player to arrive at the ball up. As long as...

    Short bursts in the midfield are a given and rightly so. He may even get more minutes if fitter. The Collingwood game showed how much of a weapon he can be. Certainly forward for the majority of time but no way a permanent forward.

    If the players buy in to the coach AND there is improvement he is just as likely to stay IMO. If we repeat 2020, would be unlikely to stay, and who could blame him.

    Obviously not too bitter he didn't get a farewell game. Media beat up.

    Liking the long term approach from the club in terms of recruiting. It is about time we built the list properly. Getting the talls in early is a smart move IMO, esp with Hooker, Hurley & Ambrose getting a bit long in the tooth. It is the right timeframe as they will take 2-3 years to develop...
