Since the Cats loss and particularly the last three games we have been delivering the ball better and to different
I've seen Hawkins kick those goal often enough to know it was luck that he missed. I've seen Dixon drop enough marks to know that it would be luck if he stuck them, ditto Rozee being a little bit off this year in moments like that.

Allowing their full forward to have SIX shots on goal is never a sustainable practise. We'd be foolish to think that that will happen again.
Nah. We stopped him getting EASY shots on goal and rattled him. It wasn’t luck so much as pressure.

It's disappointing because I actually think he moved well and led very well compared to his recent games, but was completely unable to get away from the loose man or space on his direct opponent, which was a little concerning as Harry Taylor was passed it three years ago.

Dixon still owes us for his 2017 inaccuracies

I hope the coaches remind him this Friday night to get him firing

He was a classic of ‘overplaying” in a big game. He showed a lack of composure, was wasting energy trying to do too much and looked gassed most of the time. Great finals players do not rush and blow all their energy with first quarter adrenaline. Let’s hope he got that one out of the way.

I hope he has got a new pair of contacts so he doesn't drop the sitters like he did those 2 in the last quarter when he finally got rid of Taylor holding onto him. And also stop his issues of getting under the ball in night games.
Was interesting listening to how Cox has improved at the end of the season (somewhat) due to recovering from the eye surgery and that night games were the hardest for him.

Keith Spencer, Greg Phillips and Charlie Dixon from Dixon’s Instagram account on the night of Port Adelaide’s 150th dinner this year

AFL 2020: Port Adelaide Power news, how club’s past is driving its premiership push in its 150th year

On the night of Port Adelaide’s 150th anniversary dinner in February, Charlie Dixon posted a photo to his Instagram account which at first glance appeared nothing more than a regulation selfie. But it also revealed part of the motivation behind the club’s premiership push this season.

In the photo was Keith Spencer who played 161 games from 1964-1973, during which time the Magpies won two flags from eight grand finals, but Spencer never got a medal. Next to him was Greg Phillips who won a staggering eight premierships from 343 games including a stint as captain and a best-and-fairest which has rightly landed him in the Australian Football Hall of Fame.

Then there was Dixon, who has only played in two finals in his 152-game career that started at the Gold Coast and brought him to Port Adelaide in 2016, and is now an All-Australian. And like Spencer, Dixon is still searching for that elusive premiership.

They all wore different ties — Spencer a black-and-white bow tie, Philips a black and white necktie and Dixon a black, white and teal one — but binding them together was they had all worn the same number and shared the same locker at Alberton. “Three 22’s,” Dixon captioned the photo with.

“To see the history of the club and learn more and meet the (past) players has been pretty special,” he told The Advertiser last week. “We’re trying to do something special in our 150th year and also repay what the founders did for us all those years ago. “It only took me a year to be honest to really feel at home and fall in love with Adelaide and the football club, I’ve always made my feelings known about this football club and all the help they’ve given me over the past five years.”

........ It goes on about Jonas and Ken and others - it's a long article

He almost makes Westhoff in his first year look big!
It's irritating tbh when you look at talls we've drafted & delisted over the years who never put on size yet Charlie was a stick insect.

Hopefully the key to the weights room gets found under the current fitness staff, Burgess & others had NFI.

I'm glad Gold Coast had a big role in beefing this guy up. As JimmyBC said, it's an area that we struggle in.

Peter Ladhams for example is lucky that Norwood were feeding him well before we drafted him, so we didn't need to put much work into him.

No jumper clash there - and let's not worry about the shorts either. Heck, even the umpies can wear dark shorts if they like!
