Late in the game but Tom Joyce is really cracking in and done some nice things!

17.19 121 to 8.2 50 at full time. Hard to see a 71 point loss flatters the losing side but it really did here.

Allison 26 and 3 goals, Cutler 23 and 2. Coleman kicked 3 as well.

Coleman is a must this draft. Martyn didn't do his chances any harm. I like Reville. His skill and pace is something we badly need and I doubt he would cost much in draft terms.

Good win again, was hoping for a closer contest though
The reality is that with virtually a full list to choose from our NEAFL team is streets better than all the competition. If we have a close contest or loss it will be because we haven't played well or have a run of injuries which is not necessarily going to help their development.

We haven't played Southport yet. They'd be a better challenge.

Fortitude Valley Diehards. Chelsea.
Ressies playing a very nice brand of footy. They are able to use the ball short to medium, opening angles or centering/switching the ball and finding leads rather than just trying to boot the ball long over the back. If only we could do this kind of ball control in the seniors.
Not quite the same pressure on the ball carrier and receiver in the NEAFL as there is in the AFL though chopper.

When we start winning multiple flags we may see it.

If people want to point out every mistake Cutler makes; I’ll do the same about Teflon Rayner.
They are also quoting positives. You are just a painful scratchy broken record. Surely you can find something positive to post about and just move on. Life must be miserable on your planet. Goodbye

Edit: off to catch my bus to the game.

All you are doing is coming across as utterly petty and immature, and you are detracting from your own argument with your constant whining.

Maybe if you try to be a little more constructive then people might take your opinions more respectfully

There are other teams?
I saw most of the NEAFL at the ground yesterday and was not too far from the Lions subs bench. Just sone observations I would make:

- Coleman is a genuinely exciting prospect and continues to develop well. I was impressed how much of the hard slog team stuff he does, certainly not all show. He really digs in and plays all aspects of the role.

- Jack Payne is a monster and just has so much potential development left. I hope we take him slowly and just grow him into a big tough AFL defender. Worth persevering with, even for another 3 or 4 years.

- Tom Berry looks increasingly likely that he can make the step up to AFL level eventually, if not this year then next year. The same with Wooller and Joyce. I think all of them are developing well.

- Cutler played quite well, mind you so did everyone, but it was interesting that he got a few long talks from coaches when he came off a couple of times and once was miked up to the coaches upstairs. It seemed like they were really working on aspects of his game quite intensively. One discussion went for 2 or 3 minutes until he was due to go back on. I don’t know from what I saw that Cutler is knocking the door down for senior selection any more than three or four others.

- Allison is a nice mover and a very hard worker. He more than anyone was coming off absolutely spent from effort. He, Eagles, Bastinac and Walker seemed to run a lot of the structural setup on the field. Allison seems to be getting to that point where he just needs the opportunity to step up to AFL level. I think he has matured a lot as a player since he last got a chance.

- Eagles would be a nightmare to play against. He is big, surprisingly quick and he quite happily runs through anyone in his way. A really good team mate too from the way he gets around other players.

- The young guys stepping up were all quite good against a fairly young team. Noah Cumberland didn’t get a lot of it but is tough and hard at the ball. Reville showed some good signs. I thought Martyn was a little anonymous but that may be more his role. Griffiths didn’t get a lot of opportunity but laid a great tackle.

- Starcivich will take a bit of time to work his way back to his best.

- having said all of that, Sydney were really not that good and we seemed to have their measure pretty comfortably all game. On the bench it seemed to be all about coaching guys into understanding their roles at different phases and getting their positional play right because we were a fair bit better than them across the park.
