    Mega Thread Coronavirus & the AFL - season postponed. (Thread part 1 - cont in part 2, link in thread)

    The PM today made it very clear that we DO NOT have a a shortage of goods in this country. People will be able to get whatever they need whenever they need it - as long as morons stop bulk buying. I love the fact that Coles and Woolies have issued a statement saying that no goods can be...

    Mega Thread Coronavirus & the AFL - season postponed. (Thread part 1 - cont in part 2, link in thread)

    I find the Government's reasoning that school's should remain open, flawed. The Government believes that if school's are closed all parents will need to stay home to look after them and work places will suffer and therefore the economy. The problem with this reasoning is that you are creating...

    Competitions Football season - No Crowds Round 1

    Like watching a TAC game replay that someone has decided to commentate.

    Analysis What (if any) are our deficiencies?

    I really think our weaknesses lie in our future depth. I know the club is doing everything they can to shore up our list and develop younger players to step up but it concerns me that we do not have quality replacements for our forwards or backs. The last JLC game clearly demonstrated how...

    Toast Ten Years On: Flashback to ‘Winning Together’ launch 🏆🏆

    Dimma - Ten Years Ago Was most interested in how he said he had learnt the most tactically from Chocco and for motivational tactics, he learnt the most from Sheedy... I love this quote from the end of his interview 10 years a go - “It would just be great if we could turn all those people...

    Toast Ten Years On: Flashback to ‘Winning Together’ launch 🏆🏆

    The foundation of our success - Benny Gale. Simple as that. He had the vision and charisma to lead the club out of the quagmire it had been drowning in for decades. He was able to identify clearly what was anchoring us to the bottom half of the ladder and, most importantly, the realistic step...

    Expansion Alternate AFL World 1987

    I always find these types of threads curious plus the ones stating that we should have equal representation from each state. Retrospect is a wonderful thing but even looking at the competition as it now stands, I struggle to comprehend how people could imagine a strong competition with equal...

    Changes for next year, Round 1

    Not my idea - what the coaches were trialing. I'd rather see Pickett, Rioli, C-D, McIntosh rotated through there

    Changes for next year, Round 1

    Don't think they would go with Grimes, Ashbury, Broad and Balta all in the same backline. They trialed Broad on the wing so its more likely they will have Broad out if Balta plays back rather than Short. I don't think Balta will play in the same backline as Astbury and Grimes atm. Broad plays a...

    Training Richmond 2020 Preseason training

    What the competition for spots continues to do also is push our players to be the best they possibly can be. The coaches don't need to put pressure on them, they will do it themselves and they know they will be supported by everyone to succeed if they do all the right things. The evidence of...

    State of Origin

    So are you suggesting the stars won't play or won't compete?

    State of Origin

    I actually like the teams they have generated for this year. Really, the idea of everyone in Victoria getting behind the Victoria team and every other state getting behind the Allies is farcical but to see the best players all lining up together in two teams is exciting. If I have players from...

    Stronger and Bolder by Konrad Marshall

    On the book, I loved it especially the chapters of Stack, Pickett and the chapter on Roles. Besides the continually focus on our positive culture and Dimma's relaxed approach - the book really highlighted the crucial sacrificial role Rioli plays for the team. Great read!

    Stronger and Bolder by Konrad Marshall

    All jokes aside, I bet he has read the book in detail. He would have taken copious notes to add to those he took from the Y&B book, to figure out Collingwood's 2020 game plan and club strategy. I also don't think he's the only one - expect Adelaide, Essendon, Carlton, Fremantle and St Kilda to...

    Coach Chris Scott - coach of the year?

    Would I be correct in saying he galvanizes the Geelong Supporters too? He seems to be well supported by some but many find his attitude arrogant?

    List Mgmt. Your clubs 25 and under team

    And some oppositions fans need to point out this 'arrogance' a clear indicator of their own jealousy and insecurity. Every group of supporters should have license to be cocky and proud of their club after they have won a premiership. History tells us that it doesn't last.

    Brownlow votes - how can we improve its validity?

    I'm assuming you're attempting to be sarcastic, right? That was sarcasm, wasn't it?! :think::laughing: Anyway, the difference between my concept and the All Australian Team is that you are narrowing it down to the best forward, defender and midfielder rather than the top 6 or 7(if you're...

    List Mgmt. Your clubs 25 and under team

    What people fail to see is that clubs never go from playing over 25's to switching to a team of playing all under 25's or from experience to youth over night. Other than mass injuries to a side, youth is always transitioned into experienced line ups unless the experienced lineups are under...

    Brownlow votes - how can we improve its validity?

    I think there should be three awards - best midfielder, best backman, best forward depending on the role players predominately play in through the game.

    What would it take for you to stop watching AFL?

    Perspective is a funny thing sometimes. How many see or read the same thing can be seen in so many different ways. The level of passion most rusted on AFL supporters have for not only there team but the game as a whole, can't be underestimated. For most, nothing could really stop them...
