    Preview Rnd 5 - Carlton vs Port Adelaide Sat April 16th 7.25PM @ MCG - Team Post #765

    The amount of Gibbons-haters on this board is extraordinary. If we had 22 blokes take the field each week with his effort and work-rate we'd win a lot more matches. Yet when it comes to Dow - he's a gun, or Cunners - he's a gun, or McGovern - he's a gun. It's a joke. In a team that carries far...

    Preview Rnd 4 - Carlton v Gold Coast, Saturday 10th Apr Metricon Stadium 7:25pm - Team post #931

    Parks into the ruck??? Serious??? You're sick. Casboult couldn't run or jump at the ball yesterday, which made him a liability. Needs a couple of weeks off to get his knee right. Would much rather sacrifice him for a couple of weeks now than have him going at 1/4 rat power for the remainder of...

    Last Time: Who gives a toss about last time???!!! It'll be interesting to see if this game actually does go ahead at Metricon Stadium on Saturday or whether it gets shifted south to Melbourne and becomes a Blues home game. Nothing is certain in the world of COVID-19, but some things such as...

    Meh, McGovern's hamstrings have always had greater awareness than he does.

    Our best rolling 22

    Then stop talking absolute rubbish. Murphy is all but cooked. Can't hold his body over the ball and incapable of applying defensive pressure. While he played the odd good game last year, he was more of a liability around the contest than an asset for most of the season. I'd be gobsmacked if...

    Our best rolling 22

    Not bad, but I've gone with a slightly different setup, subject to injury. B: Plowman, Jones, Newman HB: Saad, Weitering, Williamson C: Williams, Cripps, Docherty HF: Martin, Casboult, Gibbons F: Fogarty, McKay, Silvagni R: TDK, Setterfield, Walsh IC: SPS, Newnes, E.Curnow, Fisher Three...

    So that's what you're basing your ridiculous posturing on??? Really??? The first sentence you've highlighted is fact. There's nothing assertive about it. The last sentence makes no reference to Maher whatsoever, but rather other peoples' expectations. IMO you've deliberately taken sections of...

    List Mgmt. 2020 List Management II

    What the club has decided to do is try to identify one of those kids who fell through the cracks that may have rapidly improved had they had another year of development under their belts. Instead of waiting until Pick "X" in the mid-season draft the club has made the decision to push themselves...

    IMO Maher hasn't shown the type of production I'd expect from an inside mid at underage level to warrant a place on an AFL list. He is someone I'd think would benefit greatly from another year at NAB League level as putting him on an AFL list now may hurt his development more than aid it.

    Please show me where I made any such inference to any evidence he may or may not succeed.

    News Kreuz appointed Ruck Coach

    I absolutely love Kreuzer & Simmo, but like you, I do think both smack of "jobs for the boys" type appointments. Also like you, I think they'd be better off in another environment for a couple of years to expand their knowledge-base & skillsets and then return as more rounded coaching...

    Richmond's whole system is designed to enable players such as Eggmolesse-Smith to be able to shine around a core of very good players providing they're consistently prepared to put in the work and play their role. Short, Baker, Castagna, Broad, Stack and to a lesser extent, Ross, are all prime...

    Needs to spend more time on the ball where we can make better use of his vision, creativity and excellent decision-making IMO. Good things happen when he's got his hands on the ball. Setterfield in particular has been a beneficiary of Gibbons' fine work.
