    Not sure about Thommo and Dougie in defence.

    I'd prefer them on the other side of defence.

    If Dougie can make a fist of it, it'll allow him to be in the same rotation as Laird, which puts Laird into the middle more often. No one seriously thinks Thommo will be rotating through half back and spending time looking after an opposition small forward. He'll either be playing the stoppage to stoppage role or he'll be in the 2's.

    ..the Crows are at their most potent when playing two 60m kicking rebounders .... think Smith/Jaensch ... Smith/Seed ...now Smith/Seed/Hampton ( can Dougie still kick 60m? )... so playing at least two is a must imo.

    Dougie can still kick 60m, Assuming you mean straight up

    He has that horribly awkward style, I wouldn't think so

    Quote...With one of the most dangerous attacks in the competition, it's no surprise the Crows were only team to convert over 50 per cent of their inside 50s last season. Eddie Betts (75), Josh Jenkins (62) and Taylor Walker (47) featured in the top-10 goalkickers in 2016, while Tom Lynch chimed in with a handy 42 majors for the year. The three big forwards in Jenkins, Walker and Lynch are a nightmare for any defender one out, when the ball is being sent forward quickly. Unquote

    Not a bad stat.:thumbsu:

    I had just been a casual fan and would watch any game involving any team that was on TV here. This past June I took a vacation to Australia and a buddy and I went to a game while in Perth. He was rooting for the Eagles, so I decided to root for the Crows. It was the game where the Crows came from behind to win while blanking the Eagles like 30-0 in the 4th quarter. I had a great time and just decided to stick with the Crows since! Still learning the game, but I have the basics down. I wish I could play it here!!

    would like to see how many goals per inside 50 we concede compared with everyone else, and the differential

    Unfortunately, not where I live. The closest amateur league is the Toronto area, which is 4 hours away from my location

    ah well, you'll just have to get a footy to kick around once all the snow melts :p

    seeing as you're a new supporter I feel like we need to get you up to speed with some legendary Crows history... there's plenty of good and bad lol

    this is one of my favourites, 200 gamer Ben "Truck" Rutten who kicked 3 goals with his first three kicks in AFL footy got on the end of this one for his last kick in his last game :thumbsu:



    then to keep with the good and bad theme this is a classic lol
