Can't think of one of their key forwards who had an influence. King was useless apart from 2 gifts and Membrey was average. Considering we lost Walker early in the game which left us short (in height), I thought Pittard and JMac were fantastic today in covering that loss.
Agree and LMac kept Jack Lonie invisible.

Both were out marked by bigger blokes over the day but they didn’t get dominated due to lack of quality supply

a smarter team would have exploited them
King got absolutely trounced and was gifted a couple. He isn’t ready to be a number one forward.
Membrey is a 3rd tall type, but as the season goes on (if it does), he will end up being their focal point up forward. That’s not ideal for them.

St kilda have mangled their rebuild massively in my opinion.

That is the 6 that will lead us to number 5. I count 5 genuine future A-Graders there.

Thrown in Comben, Xerri, Perez, Scott, Walker, Hayden, and the 2x R1 this year and we might finally be on track.

As for today’s game...

Well done to the back 6, Jamie excellent, Luke excellent.

And I didn’t mind some of Tom Murphy’s work.

Tom was jittery in the first quarter but worked into the game from the second quarter. Would have benefited a lot from that game. Has a good set a wheels and is a great kick. That inside 50 to Larkey was weighted beautifully. He needs to become stronger when defending and spoiling but if he gets continuity he could be a creative HBF with the tools he has

What I liked about his games was the little things he was doing like smothering, shepherding, knock ons and pressure. That's a good sign.

I know he got injured and is underdone , but I reckon Ziebell is cooked.
We looked a better side once he went off.
We have Brown and Larkey as our talks, Zurhaar as the third and Taylor as the tall flanker, Ziebell’s role should go to a fast/smart crumber.
There is 2 spots for Zurhaar, Ziebell, Garner, Taylor and i would currently have Ziebell 4th in that list .

Nah, they've just been influenced by the girls is all.
Apparently right down to the whole 'showing some heart on field' thing.

Fantastic, gutsy, backs-to-the-wall win. Great way to start the season and a fine way to cap off the season, too.

Second Shinboner-esque victory for the club this weekend. Can't ask for much more than that as we wander off into the footy-less void.

Sunday 22nd March, 2020 - the Day The Footy Died.

(Hopefully somewhere out there Mike Brady is penning an American Pie-esque song about this moment. Lest we forget.)

wow, what a fight back, simpkin, taylor and jed very good, forward pressure was amazing. jasper some awesome stuff down back.
Just to add - Hall did some really key things in Q3. Tackled, pressured and kicked a big goal to keep momentum going. Not a big game, but for his first back, looks to be building nicely. The two bolded only happen when he's engaged - so good signs early!

Iv said it a few times now, but I can’t see st kilda playing finals with that forward line. I just can’t fathom that they would bring in guys like Hill, Hanners, Jones, etc to make a tilt, but then rely on a kid who has never played to be their number one forward.
Giving up Bruce for mid second rounder is going to bite them.

I thought the same about Bruce, but it was some time in the third quarter on Friday night before I realised he was playing for Western. Either way, the hype/pressure/workload on King is ludicrous. A defender of Taz’s quality (or somewhere near) every game, starting with his first.

LOL at the bedwetting on here about Fat Brad prior to the game like he was some sort of Boogeyman.... completely went missing in the 2nd half
It was amusing. Did he touch it in the 2nd half? For a so called elite runner, he looks about 5kgs overweight.

I was waiting for the second coming of Peter Matera to tear us up. It was more like Wally Matera.

Let’s not give up yet. There may yet be footy later in the year.

I just got my 2020 AFLW membership in the mail on Friday and I have no idea where my men's membership is. I think the club needs to have a pretty hard look at the membership department and their ability to get memberships to people who buy them well before the season starts.
I agree Tas. We haven’t received our memberships yet. Should the season have gone ahead normally on the weekend I’m not sure how we would’ve attended. The process needs work.

The Crazy Vossy rebuild had more credibility to it.

St Kilda's shiny new toy philosophy is coming from a 14th placed 2019 finish and they got rid of some fair players to do it.

Why are the media so on board with it? Do they like Butler's crap hairstyle that much?

LMac cops an unfair amount of criticism. He is very solid across half back. Courageous and a good defender and his kicking is improving. People will be eating their words about Luke.
He was excellent yesterday

Spot on. Can you please inform the media of that and put a stop to the infernal and incessant fapping that has been going on recently

From the stories that abounded on our forum prior to the game I was expecting something akin to a character out of the Marvel Franchise with superhuman powers. Turns out he was pantsed by one of our army of 'spuds' that are routinely denigrated and character assassinated on here almost every day
