What if Victoria decrees anyone coming from Brisbane needs to isolate for 14 days ? It's got to be a possibility.Technically no. But the thought police will be right on to it . I don't think it will be quite as simple as get them here and they're good to go.
Will the 20 Ghost contacts sue for wrongful quarantine? I hope they let them outA little birdie told me that the man in question was so drunk/high when Queensland Health spoke to him, that he couldn't remember which weekend he had held the party.
I agree that Sharp isn't ready yet, but personally felt the blame for that last goal laid firmly on how loosely checked Smith was coming into that stoppage. Ran into that with no one near him, and Clugga metres away with his hands on his hips. I thought that was a very, very poor defensive effort. No idea if it was a breakdown of team defensive structure, or an individual going missing at a key moment...but it wasn't a good look.I have no problem with the changes most are considering including dropping Lester but people really do need to look at that last goal more closely. Have a look at Sharp and his positioning. He was in the gap where the ball ended up but got sucked into taking a step or two into the contest and the ball went to the spot he vacated. He needed to hold his position. Tough lesson for the youngster.
WE ran up an enormous amount of debt during this time that would have destroyed a normal financial entity. We only exist because the AFL bank rolls us. Look at the extra money we get from the AFL compared to most other clubs. Youneverknow does have a point.
The important issue here is that we need to grow our brand so we do not lose 10 to 15 million during a poor run of form that lasts for many seasons. We could have gone out of existence if the AFK pulled the pin.
When I have been at the GABBA many of the people at the ground are AFL supporters not Brissie supporters. It would be interesting to know not only how many are not rusted on Brissie supporters but what % don't support us at all?
I am sort of planning to holiday in Brisbane during those last few home games. Hopefully the Covid situation has settled by then.
If we have flown down 4 players for our extended stay in Melbourne, I would have selected Mathieson, Adams, Ballenden & Gardiner (injury pending) as part of that extended squad. We really need some maturity in our lineup for the next couple of matches against the Magpies & Bulldogs IMO.Looks like we've flown down some extra players, they wont need to do a 14 day quarantine but they do need to return negative Covid tests.
Poor Ely misses out again.If we have flown down 4 players for our extended stay in Melbourne, I would have selected Mathieson, Adams, Ballenden & Gardiner (injury pending) as part of that extended squad.

Tbh, it was really a toss up between Mathieson & E.Smith for that elusive midfield spot, with Mathieson only getting the edge due to the inexperience of our younger midfield players in the squad. We could use another midfielder in that squad don't get me wrong although J.Berry will return back in that Best 22 and then you have Robertson, who is also a very good midfielder in the future in his own right, if worse comes to worse.Poor Ely misses out again.
I am not against your 4 but I do think we need another mid in there.
We have Prior there who could also go back I just think that gives us too many defenders, we need some run to get the ball forward more.
I get the experience thing but I would probanly go Matho, Ely, Gardiner and Archie if he is fit? If not Ballenden.
