Good - Tim Smith. I am sorry, but he has to stay, and if that means Weidemann goes (because TMac was much better today), then so be it. I love his aggressive style, his old fashioned approach and his nous for a goal. I sincerely hope he stays on our list and I think that he could be a very good player for us.

Frost - Has become a seriously good defender now. Love how he is maturing and taking it on. His disposal and decision making has improved out of sight.

Gawn - Where would we be without him?

Bad - Decision making still isn’t great. Making some costly errors. Skills at times were VFL standard. Need to get a whole lot better.

Ugly - Not much.

Winning when we were somehow favourites. Didn't really see the first half but good to hang in when we were playing poor football. Well from what I heard we were getting it ok but just making fundamental mistakes and were as usual wasting inside 50s. Good that we were able to fix those things in the second half. Good to see Viney and tmac finding form. Tmac looked like he needed vfl time two weeks ago but looked more confident today. Lockhart looked pretty comfortable, hore keeps improving each week. So some good signs from lesser experience players.

Good

- Umps. Couldn't buy a free in the first 3 but they couldn't stop helping us out in the 4th

Ugly
- Walters diving

Bad - Decision making and skill errors. Still far too many and still costing us dearly.

Ugly - nothing today

I just made the mistake of going on r/afl for a look at what the vibe was. The way people on that sub fall over themselves to suck other supporter’s d!cks is utterly sickening. Yeah, be gracious, but **** me some of the self deprecating ******** you see on there is revolting.
This is true for all of Reddit but the moment you go against the grain with your opinion you get burried by their downvote system. Impossible to have a decent discussion.

Moths to a flame, that system. As soon as you go down to -2 in a footy thread, you're guaranteed to be about -20. As soon as you go +3, you're a lock for +20.

And that’s the reason why people make such s**thouse meaningless comments on there like ‘you guys really deserved it’ or ‘glad we won, but jeepers you were hard done by’.
It’s bloody pathetic, I’m genuinely embarrassed by the Melbourne supporters that post there.

I'm glad I stick to lurking r/choosingbeggars and r/powerwashingporn by the sounds of it.

Goody likes the three talls forward set up, and it worked well today, so I doubt we’ll be changing anything.

The good;
Viney - captain my captain
Gawn massive last quarter took the game by the scruff of the neck
Tmac finished the game when needed
Calm frost offset with crazy frost
Lockahart is never still
Solid performance by the mids as a collective
Smith setting up the game in the first half
Salem is all silk

I really liked Tracs game, he was strong and composed.
Gus the best he has used the ball year
weideman competed really well

May just looks solid as a rock

I don’t know. I don’t think I thought about my post to be frank.
Haha, fair enough. I think the 3 of them work well together because Smith isn't really a tall forward ... the reason you don't want to many talls in there is one of his strengths, his pressure game. He plays more like a medium forward, just with a really good set of hands
