    1st Test New Zealand v Australia Feb 29-Mar 4 0830hrs @ the Basin Reserve

    If he keeps going at this rate we can get the GOAT under 30 for his career test bowling average which would be a great milestone for him.

    A lot of very soft dismissals in this dig - bloody hell.

    2nd Test Australia v West Indies Jan 25-29 1430hrs @ the Gabba

    That’s how you bowl to tailenders. We might take a leaf out of their book.

    BBL Match 44 The Final Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat 1845hrs @ the SCG

    Definitely true that he’s unproven at first class level (20 wickets at 23 in four matches I think) but his action looks effortless and like he could combine speed and consistency. May not get a chance with big three incumbents but would like to see it.

    Spencer Johnson is a talent. He looks a better prospect for test cricket than Lance Morris to me.

    Third Test Australia v Pakistan Jan 3-7 1000hrs @ the SCG

    I know Harris and Bancroft (both wrong side of thirty) have been overlooked and Renshaw at 27 is currently next cab off the rank but (for those more ardent Shield watchers) who is leading the way among the next generation of opening batters. It seems like guys such as Henry Hunt and Bryce Street...

    Was Marsh in any serious doubt of being timed out there?

    Game Day 2023 AFL DRAFT

    Because it gives every other club the opportunity to make an offer for the pick. No incentive to pick early unfortunately.

    Hey Mutineer which of these lads are QLDers? Is there a growing stream of traffic in this direction - are the schools actively recruiting in Brisbane?

    Determinants of Success in AFL Footy

    I think those early results are very interesting with no single factor being cited by all respondents and "Player Health and Fitness" being the most common factor so far (61.5% of responses). Talent & Skill Level being nominated by less than half shocks me and it's a more even distribution than...

    Determinants of Success in AFL Footy

    As a way to pass the time in the off-season between trade and draft I'm interested in the collective view of the BF crowd on what are the major determinants of success for a club in the modern AFL competition. I've listed ten possible factors in the poll (with brief, fairly self-explanatory...

    2023 Trade Time Talk - Henley Beach Café Returns

    Certainly is the case that Rachele's raw stats in his limited time in the midfield don't compare to Laird's but what I think he did show glimpses of is being a goal-kicking/front-half orientated midfielder which I think is the most impactful and valuable type of player (think peak Danger...

    Opinion Non-Crows AFL 9

    It was Joel Smith from Melbourne - a quasi key forward - who tested positive which perhaps is another reason (that Melbourne couldn't disclose) as to why they wouldn't release Harrison Petty.

    List Mgmt. 2023 List Management and Trading (Part 2)

    10 & McAdam for 27 & Petty is a fair trade (points-wise) on the following assumptions: McAdam is worth pick 36 (end of 2nd round) on a standalone basis Petty is worth pick 14 (mid-to-late 1st round) on a standalone basis

    When Footy Imitates Economics & Finance

    A good case study for this model is the Jack Bowes trade from last year which was quite ground-breaking in the league as a very overt salary dump. Gold Coast Geelong Give Bowes Pick 7 Future 3rd round Bowes salary Get Future 3rd round Bowes salary Bowes Pick 7 The trade maths looks...

    When Footy Imitates Economics & Finance

    This thread is a bit esoteric and won't be for everyone so apologies in advance (and there's plenty of threads discussing is player X worth pick Y or better than player Z). The thought I wanted to share out with the BF trade and draft community is the clear parallels (and therefore learnings)...

    Rumour 2023 Rumours and Speculation (Rumours total 37!, 1 (busted) BIG FISH ALERT last October 9th) (9 confirmed! 17 Busted!)

    With Lachie Schulz wanting out that’s going to leave a McHenry-sized hole in Fred’s forward line that they’re going to need to fill. I guess we shouldn’t stand in Ned’s way if he wants to further his career with this move.
