    Toast Welcome to the kennel Bailey smith

    Nothing can give common sense. It does not exist. If it is common it is not sense! If it is sense it is not common!

    Where are the Western Bulldogs at?

    You asked a question regarding the age experience differential and I gave you a response about the major reason for the pronounced differential. There was no comment about anything else, except that we performed very well over the season with such an imbalance. Your response is simply unwarranted.

    Where are the Western Bulldogs at?

    Bulldogs were simply required to give younger inexperienced players a game due to the injury toll on the experienced players. Premiership players Clay Smith and Liam Picken played no games Tom Liberatore appeared in the 1st game only Tory Dickson played 8 games Dale Morris played 11 Tom Boyd...

    Where are the Western Bulldogs at?

    Really confident the Bulldogs can be at least competitive and challenge for the 8. Do need a better injury management position, but they have exposed a lot of quality to senior footy. If they can get players like Dickson, Picken and Liberatore on the park for most of the season, it will improve...

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    So in summary, we are in violent agreement, that players born after 1988 have been an inferior generation to the earlier born players.

    Review 2013 - Redo the 2013 AFL draft

    Cripps and Kelly were both better in 2017 and 2018. Bontempelli was better than both in 2014-2016.

    Review 2013 - Redo the 2013 AFL draft

    In what universe where you living before 2017. Bont's output in 2015-16 is well ahead of most and only Cripps and Kelly have been close in subsequent seasons. Bontempelli has not been at the same level in the last 2 years but he has still been a strong contributor, despite some obvious body...

    Review 2013 - Redo the 2013 AFL draft

    Tom McDonald plays very well as a key forward and there is not really that much between him and Brown in that regard. For 2018 Brown average 2.8 goals (61 in 22 games) while McDonald was at 2.6 (53 in 20 games). McDonald is ahead an almost every other statistic and yes I would take McDonald...

    Review 2013 - Redo the 2013 AFL draft

    Actually Ben Brown goes on long leads and repeat leads like a good forward should. It does not mean he plays up the ground, although modern football does result in forwards leading up to half back. I don't believe Ben Brown has ever played key defence, and certainly not for an entire game...

    Review 2013 - Redo the 2013 AFL draft

    Well I would take Tom McDonald ahead of Ben Brown every day of the week. Brown is a forward and a very good one, but he is the least versatile player. He simply does not play up the ground, but McDonald can play key back as well as forward. He is much more adaptable to team and circumstance...

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    Zverev is clearly the best performed post 1990 birth, with 3 Masters titles and certainly has time to make a mark on the Grand Slams. However, I strongly believe we should have seen more challenge from the age group as a whole. It is incomprehensible that players like Isner and Anderson still...

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    That does not explain why the Millman was the youngest player to make the last 8 at Flushing Meadow. There is an abundance of younger players on the circuit and they should by now be outperforming the likes of Cilic, DelPotro and Isner, or do you believe that the generation of players born in...

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    But if the likes of Del Potro, Wawrinka and Cilic could take a Grand Slam when the 3 are about, why cannot the current younger players. Note Del Potro was just 21 when he defeated Federer in the final after overcoming Nadal in the semi final.

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    I know you are having your personal war with the OP, but this still does not address why Cilic, Del Potro and Wawrinka have won Grand Slams but nobody born since 1988 has been able to achieve that. Why did John Millman (born in 1989) get through to the last 8 when the young guns that should be...

    I have never disagreed with you on this issue.

    No player aged 27 or younger has done anything

    This seems a very circular discussion with no purpose. The point of the thread is that no male player born since 1988 has won a Grand Slam. This remains the case with Cilic the youngest of those to have been successful. The OP is suggesting that the age group below is simply not good enough...

    Analysis Reasons to be excited about the future...

    I only have outcomes to look at, but we have a high attrition rate and it seems that we just claim bad luck. We have had a serious plague of foot injuries and I would like to see the club carry out a thorough investigation into the processes around the fitness and conditioning as well as the...
