Hi Kingy and Benny,
We lost the game at ground level they were just harder at it when the ball hit the turf, as mentioned previously our kicking was atrocious as well.
Maybe time to give Fort a go in the ruck and I would bring in Sam Simpson for Miers he is a good user of the ball.
Cheers boys..

Hey Lads....

I know this is not a Geelong matter, but can you tell me how Bailey b*tch...er...Fritch was exonerated at the AFL for his forearm strike to the head of young Powell on the weekend. Not only was it high, but also had the potential to seriously injuring the boy...
and perhaps discuss McCartins penalty for his king hit on Black which seemed a bit light to me..surely 8 weeks was more appropriate given the League's attention to protecting the head of players.

Fitch's escape from any penalty is a disgrace in my opinion.

Why is Mitch Duncan so criminally underrated in the wider footballing world

I don't think it's a coincidence that out shift in playstyle since the first couple of rounds coincided with him coming back into the side.

Any love for Hendo yet, Benny? I understand that we all have players who we don't believe are all that critical to our fortunes. But I think he has been nothing short of fantastic for us since making his way back into the senior team last year. And I can't see that he's dropped off at all heading into this season, either.

What more would you like to see him do before you would accept he's worth his spot in the side?

The real question is..."Is Benny the David King of K-Rock?"

I agree with you 100% Henderson has been great for us.. As much as he loves Kolo, I do think his form hasn't been above par on his normal grade... been a bit weaker then his previous years... please don't hate me Benny :huh:

As I drove home thru Warrnambool last Thursday I kept an eye out for a fully disclothed Ben after gold medals won the grand annual but must have missed him

Great win by the cats, hate to be the negative person but I’m unsure we can play that way again v tigers. A few times lynch burnt hendo on the lead but dropped a simple mark. Would probably prefer Kolodjashnij for that match up. However great to win and have that belief we can beat them again.
Thought esava provided a physical contest in the ruck, but his kicking for goal is not a pretty sight

Yep, one of the most consistent players over the last year. Take him out of the backline and we are looking thin down there, who has he proposed to put in?

Hey K rock Football ... are you back to normal in doing the Cat attack Podcast?
I cant speak fo them but they did refer to the podcast having "general soreness" last week and should be back this week. Im sure the Frank Costa memorial made it hard scheduling last week.

Hey Guys, if I was having a punt before you read this question, I think you will be discussing the question what im about to ask you...

This rucking situation what is happening.. it even made me start up a thread on the Geelong BigFooty page as it's doing my head in


At his best Stanley is our best ruck, but you have to reward players when playing well eg Fort, and than if Stanley not performing you have to drop him...

I love Geelong, I really do.. but I'm not a fan of this rucking situation in Blitz and Esava.. as Esava only had 4 hitouts which is basically just a back up ruck. Which Blits needs to play in defence as our no 1 kDF..
It's a major concern atm with the ruck, in not backing a genuine ruckman in either Stanley or Fort. Yes we won both games with them but Marshall going down with injury might of saved us, but come Finals it won't work

Gents -
Great call both on the Tigers and Saints game. Very different games - both got us the 4 points but you had to work much harder to make the Saints game sound interesting.

Has Benny's nether regions settled or are you till breaking glass to survive?!? Probably should not have laughed as hard as I did but something about fart jokes and circumstances you just never grow out of... especially when its not happening to someone else!

We all know that Sav is a CS favourite and a certainly gets our blood flowing when he's taking big marks or working hard at ground level and he does both very well.

However, in the kicking game he needs work. On the short passes to team mates he has issues and goal kicking is a big one for him.

Who is the goal kicking or technique coach at the club and can we get him some OT as he's got some work to do there!

Cam Guthrie - a revelation again this year and in the James Kelly / Joel Corey mold of not being flashy but being reliable and doing the hard work for the benefit of the team - and the comparison should reveal the esteem with which his work his held currently.
However - can we lose the 1-2 games with Zac. Trying to get his bro a kick cost us a goal against the Saints late and its not the first time.
The Guthrie to Zuthrie show needs to stop and please just take the best option ( and I blame more Cam to Zac than Zac to Cam in this)

Thank God for a day game too - these back to back nights are brutal for me and getting older makes it harder to rebound each week.

Going by Mr Scotts last few press conferences, Has he started having a bong for breakfast? Little bit of Bob Marley gear to start his day.
He’s the most chill I’ve seen him in his coaching career. Would be fascinated to ask any senior players if there has been any noticeable attitude adjustments during the week.
I remember him giving Hawthorn absolutely nothing publicly during their period of dominance. He’s spoke glowingly of Richmond after the win, was complimentary of Sydney and StKilda after each of those matches as well.
I like it, he comes off less smug and more human. Here’s hoping he continues with the gunja, as this new Mr Scott is breath of Smokey fresh air.
