    You were the one who told us to google definitions.

    So you're trying to tell me our players are born with the genetic knowledge of how play football then? Clearly not, this 'instinct' you speak of is developed through hundreds of hours of being exposed to situations on the field until your response becomes intrinsically ingrained, Which is exactly what drilling a gameplan into a team in any sport is all about.

    Your argument is silly. Of course players aren't born with genetic knowledge, I said that as a joke. In this context instinct would depend on a player's personality, confidence, skill level, athleticism etc., and their license to take risks in game situations where there is a perceived benefit to circumventing the normal game plan. Instincts are different for everyone, and it's not hard to see that playing on instinct is unpredictable, and therefore unlikely to fit into the strict discipline and rigidness of Lyon's game style.

    Something I understand we do in training fairly often is simulate a match situation to deal with the last few minutes of really close games, so that when the times comes, which it often does, then everyone knows how to respond instinctively. That training is to prepare for the live moment. All athletes do this (and anyone who has to make split second decisions in the moment, like emergency services). To my mind that’s what Ballas was talking about.

    Of the million people frequenting this board??? You can't complain about the frequency of something and then argue over it's small number o_O That's illogical.

    Yes.

    Every year there's more and more guff in these threads about inane bullshit.

    The training reports have been magnificent, thank you so much everyone for taking the time.

    It wasn’t meant to suggest catching a ball is trivial compared to solving maths equations it’s supposed to illustrate that some folk are able to instinctively solve those same equations in their heads in real time so they actually catch a ball. Agreed there’s muscle memory and such involved that needs to be coordinated too so as to get your hands and body in the right place to do it

    generally when our players have heavily or even somewhat limited preseasons they play well, well below their best come H&A. It's something that really makes or breaks a year

    Kind of a big blow, fearing we may have seen the best of him. Might be a little hysterical but it's just setback after setback for him, it's Markelle Fultz-like.

    D Pearce's instinct was to get ball, run fast, then throw it on the boot and kick it high, and as far as he could. That instinct needed to be modified and developed to become a useful component of a game plan. That never quite came off for us, but I think a similar process happens to a differing degree with every single player in the AFL. Some need less of it (say Eddie Betts), some need more (say Griffin Logue).

    Smart move is to assume he’s not going to be up for round 1, and give him his own mini preseason so he’s good to go, like he’s had a full pre season from round 3... no NAB cup for him!

    Don’t they soon have 3 weeks off.

    Would love to have him and every player available, but it is never going to happen. Brewley will have an extra spring in his step at the next training session for sure.

    It's a good time for Brett Bewley to fill in, and a tough time for his contract

    Massive shame. I remember when I first saw his gazelle like run through the middle. Reminded me of Peter Matera - my favourite player in the early 90's (shame me, go on). Real shame he never really exploded past that. Always seems to be hampered. Highlight was that running goal off the bench in the final down in geelongistan. Prove me wrong Hilly.

    First time I saw a hip replacement I realised that not all surgeons are delicate.

    It was about the time that they pulled out the chisel.

    There is a reason orthopedic surgery is nicknamed black and decker work.

    What does Ross Lyon have to do with a quote from Ballantyne?
