I wonder which had the bigger crowd today. NM v GWS at Boot Park, or Roosters v Bulldogs at the SCG?

I use the term 'bigger' quite loosely. ;)

New coach honeymoon period over for the Roos.
Need a massive clean out of spuds at end of the year and hit draft hard
This. Roos were smarter than Carlton, got the extra 'buzz' game by announcing the last game for the outgoing coach in advance, then a few weeks where everyone is playing for their careers with the new coach. Regression to the mean today.

Pretty simplistic, this was a tough willing game for 3 quarters and then the Giants ran over them at the end. I enjoyed watching it and I don't enjoy much AFL games these days.

Brad Scott comes in, kills Shinboner spirit. North proceed to get reputation for massive chokes.

Brad Scott goes out, the last two games look like Shinboner spirit to me - they dropped away in the end but it was a very physical game today.

I gotta say, me neither, then again my team lost their last 3! You would have enjoyed the last month I'm sure.

Yeah I am enjoying watching us play as we are currently playing at a high level and a good team playing high level football is always good to watch. The other games are less enjoyable although Port v Freo was a pretty decent game.

Take it to a more simplistic level, if Josh Kelly was playing in blue and white, not orange and grey, then things are very different.

Albeit we missed Higgo really badly.

Tarryn Thomas needs to spend the off season doing montages where he runs up and down sand dunes and stuff.

Once he has the tank to play full time onball, we have the super quality mid we need.

Kelly was great no doubt but Cogs and Taranto were our best.

Thomas is a jet. Pure silk, gonna be a lot of Hird about him.

Easily play HF but switch onto the ball if his club requires.

Hird! That's exactly it.

I've been thinking Bontempelli but nah, you're right, Hird is a better comparison.

Albeit I think Tarryn will be heavier and stronger through the core than Hird was.
