    Troy Selwood Quits For Health Reasons

    Does anyone know the story? Hopefully just as the article suggests, obviously hoping he’s ok.

    Autopsy Pre season V Richmond

    It’s a concerning start, the injury trend continues....umpires although not the reason for the loss were certainly not helpful. I’d like to see us play on more often, and trust that your team mates are providing an option. Richmond do that very well. Playing on means you have to hit your...

    Autopsy Magpies Season 2020

    Plenty of lessons to take out from the season, tough draw and injuries a concern again. Lady Luck just not on our side. All things considered not a bad season, definitely could have been better though. The persistent issue for me was connection with our forwards, our midfield under performed...

    Review Player Review v Brisbane

    I thought we should have rested key players before the West Coast game and also before this game. Clearly a bit flat from some of our primer movers, although to their credit they pushed hard to the line. Phillips has paid with his season. Slippery deck, will be good match practice for finals if...

    Review Player review v Geelong

    A lot worked well tonight, not least of all Geelong being two players down and there being no score reviews... tough in those conditions to be without your leader. In any case we still put together a nice performance. Setting the tone early appears to be a bit of trademark. BOG for me was...

    Review Player review v GWS

    That hurt, a loss and losing your best backman and key player. I think in hotly contested games like this it really shows when you don’t have a key forward. Howe - 23 possessions in 3/4’s. Rarely loses a 1v1 covers other players, attacks the ball, intercepts and disposes of it beautifully. Bad...

    Footy classified Key Forward convo

    Beginning of coaching tenure 22.

    Clearly bored out of my brains! Buckley had the most complete team, probably narrowly ahead of Shaw. The 2012 team had a lot of holes in hindsight, from memory he coached well to get us in the top4 with all the injuries we had. didnt realise burns was in the 96 team and also that Brown played...

    17 game H&A season

    Is this scenario tailor made for the Pies with our injury issues? Presumably the fewer games we play the less likely we’ll overload the players and end up with a long injury list! I guess from another perspective also, it gives less time for recovery if we do lose players mid-season. We might...

    The health of the game

    I wonder what our game will look like 10 years from now, and whether it will be worth watching. There has been a strong and persistent move away from hard at it contested football, the physical aspect is slowly being legislated out of the game. The trend is concerning for me as a fan. The...

    Autopsy JLT 2 v Carlscum - Player review

    I’m getting too excited, not long now. Same fixture in season and we walk away with a 100 point win. They are a rabble, it’s the disdain talking but still a valid. Thank god Murphy didn’t fall to us in the draft, what a passenger. Aside from the last quarter I felt for the large part we...

    Autopsy JLT 1 v Freo player review

    There was a lot to like today, things are tracking very well indeed. From a game plan perspective we dominated with our intercepting and rebound from half back. On ball you can tell we will dominate when it counts. Fwd our set up will deliver plenty of goals, similar to last year we have role...

    Breaking into the 22

    Keeping myself occupied in the off-season...who are you most keen to see break into the 22, who has the greatest upside. I’m going with Nathan Murphy, was really impressed with him in the latter parts of the VFL season and wasn’t too bad on debut in the ones. If he can build some strength to...

    Strategy Improvements for 2019

    I think this is the only way I can deal with the pain and emptiness, time to look forward... Firstly I think the coaching group were first rate and should be kept together at all costs. Footy cap restricts us from making further improvements. Mason Cox - he has started to clunk marks as we all...

    Autopsy Collingwood v GWS - player analysis

    Havent seen one so I thought I’d give it a crack. We played like street fighters tonight, dominated convincingly but just couldn’t get the runs on the board. Hopefully conversion is a focus this week and we improve on that for Richmond because we’ll need it. Sidebottom - BOG by a country mile...

    Analysis Our top 5

    As it stands this minute... 1) Jeremy Howe - he does all the flashy stuff, has all the tricks but what impressed me most was against Geelong when he beat Dangerfield one out on a number of occasions! Best interceptor in the game, strong 1 v1 and sets us up incredibly well going forward. 2)...

    Opinion The Tennis GOAT

    I’m known for taking on a cause, and particularly where I see injustice. I get that Federer is the most elegant and skilful player to have played the game, and for me plays the most entertaining tennis...but what I can’t understand is how he is considered Greatest Of All Time (GOAT)! To me the...

    Football tradition

    I’m happy we’ve retained the bounce, it’s a truly unique element to our game. I wish they would stop trying to tamper with our sport. The game is more like basketball these days, everybody attacks and everybody defends, its sprint up and down the ground...not as many heavy hits and tackles. I...
