    Gold Jacket curse

    A mate pointed this out to me at the weekend, the Gold Jacket has a long list of sad endings for us and/or for them after players win it. When he rattled off the list I was really surprised at how many of the peak of our club had ended badly. ROB, got a five year deal, turned to mediocre Brad...

    Roast Geelong can't develop young players

    As part of my research into the Crows slow rebuild I thought I'd check out high ranking teams lists. First team I checked out was perennial finalists Geelong. What I found with Geelong was really surprising, they have an abysmal record of developing their own players. Others may want to offer...

    Dees, biggest Flat Track Bullies - ever

    Flat Track bullies is a frequently used term and has in recent years been attached to teams like West Coast and Port. However, no team has ever earned the tag more than the 2018 Melbourne side, almost unbelievable that they decimate teams from 10th -18th but can't beat a single side 1st - 9th...

    Rorting the 30 second rule

    Noticing an increasing abuse of the 30 second kicking for goal rule where players indicate they are going for goal so the umpire doesn't call play on after 4-5 seconds as he should but gives the player up to 30 seconds. The player then wastes a heap of time before then passing the ball and not...

    Play Nice North Melbourne - 2018 and beyond

    I was a North supporter before the Crows were created so they are my second team. North loaded up with mature players for a flag tilt that fell short. I'm now worried that they have fallen so far and to me appear in free fall with no likely move up the ladder in the foreseeable future. Had big...

    GWS - not scared enough yet? You will be when you read this list.

    I did a post similar to this back in May after GWS thrashed Hawthorn. Many people said GWS would fold again in the run home and posed no threat going forward. Might be time for a recalibration on what the AFL has created for the competition. Yesterday's humiliation of Richmond shows just what...

    GWS - be scared, be very scared

    Be scared, be very scared. We all know that GWS is now looking like a very good team on the rise, it will certainly play finals this year and may even perform very strongly once there. So lets see why this is happening. In the round 3 game against Sydney the commentators constantly referred to...

    Can lowly clubs rebuild now?

    A while ago we all believed that teams rose and fell ladder positions on a slow cyclic rotation. You know how it has been in the past, Hawthorn and St.Kilda crap for a number of years before rising to the top, Essendon and Carlton going the opposite way over the same period. Been thinking...

    The Academies - 2014 and 2015

    Thought it important to open this thread so all those ill informed ranters on the Sydney Swans Academy thread can also vent their absolute disgust at the development of the AFL players from Qld & NSW by the other three academies as well. So away you go, vent away about the advantage these...
