    Make the 8 and anything can happen

    Making the 8 would be an absolute best thing for this club (since 2017). It would mean we’d have one of the best momentum for a team coming into the Finals. Our hunger would peak over this next preseason, and we’d likely attract more quality interstate players with our trajectory. Results this...

    Player Watch Brayden Cook

    Here’s Cook’s AFL stats: Cook’s games in each of the AFL seasons looks similar to that of Fog, with the “up and down” amount of games. Interesting observations: 2021 + 2023, he only played 4 games in total with a respectable average of 15 disposals (for a young player); went goalless these...

    Yes. It’s linked with stress hormones which can lead to higher sugar levels.

    Review Good/Bad vs West Coast

    I’ve played many types of sports, and I can share a simple summary across all forms of team sports: Regardless of the opposition, if you win by a big margin, it’s a good win. Teams play crap, often it’s because the opposition didn’t allow them to play well. Now this isn’t me being a “happy...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    We all can have opinions on the sub, but who gets managed and when they get called off is not going to be obvious to anyone bar the players and those relevant staff who manages the players. Basically, if we have a decent win, why the need to dissect on the sub call?

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    Can we at least agree the sub call is really up to the coach and fitness staff to decide, as well as players giving their own feedback on their bodies?

    Review Good/Bad vs West Coast

    Good: - Murphy’s courage, pound for pound he’s got to be one of the bravest blokes out there. Played a fairly good game too. - Nankervis; that Chase on Ryan, composure and then smother was elite defending; really liked his marking too. Has to be a regular from now on. - Cook did some good...

    Review Good/Bad vs West Coast

    “Did what they had to do” is more like winning by 30-40 points. When you win by 100, it’s a good win. Considering they won against the Dees just last week. You can dismiss it as “opposition was piss weak”, but could it be they were shit tonight cos we played really well? And dare I say it...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    I think there is a general misconception that I’m just blindly defending Nicks as if he’s my dad (he’s not). My take is about the overall results being both a coaching issue as well as plenty of players being out of form in the early season compared with last year. I also think our depth is...

    If you’re interested in alternative viewpoints then why the **** are you mocking my alternative view point? I come on here for a discussion, doesn’t mean I have to absorb others’ opinions. You think what you want to think, and I do my own thinking.

    Positive stats to lighten the mood 2024

    I think it was a combination of bad tactics but also necessary changed tactics due to player injuries and players being out of form. Tex and TT injured initially didn’t help our cause. Dawson, Rachele, Rankine playing some of their worst games in those first few rounds. Then there was Fog...

    Positive stats to lighten the mood 2024

    I haven’t been following any footy shows this year. I’ve found other life hobbies/commitments and don’t even come on BF as much these days. I can admit our bottom half a dozen isn’t as strong as the top contending teams, but I can also see that our youngsters are still not good enough or fit...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    Brisbane have been getting their mojo back in a big way in the last few games, likewise with the Pies. Brisbane in particular, has been having a huge surge in scoring output. Pies back to their scraping close wins. The point being, we’re now not far off the mark, unlike the debacle mess we were...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    You are putting words in my mouth, as I’ve never said I rated Nicks highly. I had voted “leaning yes”, not “firmly yes” in the poll. Winning shouldn’t be the only factor to judging a coach’s credentials. It’s also about how he can turn his troops around when form dips, and whether the team can...

    I’m seeing a decent form turn around, and I just wanted to share some stats. I doubt it if I can change anyone’s mind on here, but I guess more for those who enjoy analysing the numbers.

    What’s more pleasing is the change of momentum from point A (first 4 rounds) to point B (last 6 rounds): After round 4, we were looking very pathetic with an abysmal percentage: 0W 75%. With the current state of 3W1D 117%, we have improved a winning percentage by 58% and a score percentage...

    Injury 2024 Crows Injury Update

    From the AFC website: “Van Berlo said it was disappointing, following the 24-year-old's solid performance against Collingwood, which included 30 disposals, 16 contested possessions, eight clearances and 699 metres gained. "Speaking to Darren (Burgess) we believe it's similar in nature to what...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    I’m not talking about identical fields but a relative analogy of similar traits eg. Educating, counseling, tailoring individual needs relative to weakness/strength. The other analogy being the outcome of results. If a student fails, you don’t just sack the teacher. Questions should be asked...

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    I liken a coach to that of a teacher. A coach isn’t about guaranteeing success, you need the students to follow suit. Like a teacher, he needs to help improving the herd, so ultimately they can graduate. Have we gone backwards in 2024? Results now say “yes”. However, we need to look at...

    Review GBU vs collingwood

    The free was BS when you see crucial final minutes players do this kind of run without being penalised. More so when all the commentators were like “there’s a free being paid…against the Crows…for running too far!” (Yep, everyone was shocked)

    Opinion Matthew Nicks: Adelaide's Coach (Part 2) - Full Support of the Board

    We’ve just played 2 of last year’s Grand Finalists. With a tie at home and a 4-point loss away, is that a sign we’re playing the right brand of footy now? Bearing in mind also that the Lions and Pies are both in fair dinkum form, and looking similar to their 2023 version now. Nicks gets no credit?

    There’s a separate issue with mental resilience and how well you fit in your line of work. By and large, if you accept your mental fragility and open up to talk about it to others, that’s usually a sign of mental resilience and a willingness to help others. Fish quitting footy and seeking other...

    You’re one of the very people on here I have no doubt come on for a good discussion and I respect your thoughts. Though I think there is some underlying misconception with your last paragraph. That is, giving up on footy doesn’t mean you’re giving up on life. In fact, giving up in general isn’t...
