    Competitions The 2021 Port Board Buddy Draft - All I Want For Australia Day is a Power Player Buddy

    Todd Marshall for me. Just needs a reasonable injury run to really step up now. His personal challenges were followed by a series of unrelated injuries often just as he was showing improvement and consistency. This will be his year! On SM-G986B using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Strategy Annual club focus group no.2

    Was at least 3 female suporters last time so may just be timing/ availabilty. Not going near age demographics as I always get myself in trouble. [emoji846] On SM-T830 using BigFooty.com mobile app

    List Mgmt. 2020 Draft Mega Thread - picks 35, 47, 57, 59, 73, 95

    While i agree that both our young rucks are a chance to be a kpf monster, i think they are lower probabilities, compared to the above discussion on other positions, so we need to be more actively considering the future outside our current list for this position.

    List Mgmt. 2020 Draft Mega Thread - picks 35, 47, 57, 59, 73, 95

    Mead, Pasini and Bergman all need to be in this conversation also. Realistically they won't all be successes but off that list only Dixon has no emerging coverage, as neither Marshall or Georgiades will be a monster, stand and deliver key forward or even a hybrid of size. On SM-G986B using...

    Strategy Annual club focus group no.2

    Terrific news Rick and the club has responded encouragingly and consistently to the group feedback we provided last year. I think Richo and CD are a big part of that. From my perspective, in particular there is much improved club performance in the areas of PBs, captaincy, refocused branding...

    Opinion Changes for QF vs Geelong

    Dropkick on 7 news offering amazing insight that Farrel will be struggling to retain his spot with the returnof Butters. This was following up on his other in depth analysis that Burton will be an automatic inclusion, an opiinion that is nowhere near as clear cut a decision in any other...

    Preview Changes Rd 14 vs Sydney

    I don't think it really requires an additional impost though. We are already doing a fair bit as part of our "Exclusive Zone", much of it fluff piece interviews with Vossy etc. I would rather see an update from him following each scratch match just covering who impressed, who was injured etc...

    Game Day Port vs Someone we used to know

    This was a bit of a breakout leadership moment for SPP i think. He picked up the team and carrited it forward in that last quarter. He steamed at the ball causing panic, then mopped up and brought others into the game, lycett not far behind. Then Zac stepped up to say "I'LL HAVE ME SOME OF THAT"...

    Prediction Changes Rd 6 vs Giants

    Bassett said MG has had another calf niggle and only got back from a funeral in Perth . Wasn't an option this week. On SM-T830 using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Toast Pick #12 (2018) Zak Butters

    While his skill and ball getting is impressive, I like the way he seems to come from nowhere to lay a tackle. Seems to have a great sense where ball will go even when we don't have it. Its only partly explained by his speed. On SM-G950F using BigFooty.com mobile app

    Corona virus, Port and the AFL.

    Without any particular expertise, I think it is showing that apart from NY and France where their numbers are probably now reflecting closer to actual additional deaths above the norm in their current numbers reported, there are significant unexplained gaps between Covid death numbers reported...

    List Mgmt. Pick 47 (2017) - Sam Hayes

    Sam is well ahead of the usual trajectory for young ruckmen I think. Add an ACL interruption to this and he is tracking very nicely indeed. He needs to keep building his body, strength and endurance. Could well debut this year but I wouldn't be in any rush to push him through too quickly to the...

    Game Day Pre-Season R1 v. Fitzroy (also Review Thread)

    Two things stood out for for me with Butters. 1. He seems to have time and vision in traffic. I put this down to an excellent football brain that is also calm and clinical under heat. Even when he has the occasional clanger i can see what he is trying to do, and an agressive attacking style...

    Opinion The Evolution of Your Best 22 for 2020

    Disagree with this. Leaving aside the disrespectful dismissal of McKenzie who has been excellent since mid last year, I think the game reflected deliberate management of Dixon back towards confidence and form. He is not a natural footballer and we have seen over the journey that he gets much...

    Preview 2019 Goodbye (To 2020) New; Preseason Discussion

    Like a number of players, I think Sam Hayes had a solid game without being particularly memorable. What stood out for me overall was our depth, where we probably have 30 players genuinely vying for best 22 and a number of additional players who could press early in the season. For me the only...

    Preview 2019 Goodbye (To 2020) New; Preseason Discussion

    Was at Talkin footy tonight with SPP and Zac Butters. SPP indicated he expected to be playing majority high half forward with a few minutes in midfield and also some time deep forward. He did not expect to be covering Ollie, but that a number of them would add a few minutes to cover...
