yep - that's what I saw as wellI'm pretty surprised Bont got BOG coaches votes. At the game Macrae was just monumental. Naughton, a match winner.
Bont did some good things but also had some uncharacteristic mistakes. Just some real grubby kicking, few handballs to people's feet, caught HTB several times. Was a very un-Bont like game to me.
The problem is that if they stay uncorrected they seep into your subconscious. I have found at times (to my horror) that I've become so inured to these errors that I have absentmindedly typed "their" or "there" instead of "they're" ... or other similar homophonic or apostrophic slips.Please don't.....
BREAKING NEWS ...even an English one would do.
Get busy, Mr McGlee, you've a power of work to do. In the old days, if you were a bloke, you had to wear a tie in the Outer at the Western Oval and the accepted response to bad language was "to whom are you speaking ? We haven't been introduced."Wow! As a teacher for 32 years, I have been ignoring grammatical errors on forums for years, thinking it was bad etiquette to correct errors. We appear to have opened a can of worms this week. I’m going to be a very busy boy from now on.

according to the hun, had over 60 pressure efforts. Think the next best was in the 30s or 40s. coaches appreciate 2 way playersFair dinkum Bont must have done some very team orientated things/set up the stoppages well as I would have J-Mac and Naughts clearly ahead of him.
Schache made a few nice leads into spaces, we just didn't kick it to him those times or hesitated to long kicking inside when marked just outside the 50 allowing Geelong to cover with extra defenders. Played well, just sometimes you have those games where you don't have the goals to show for it. Thinking we will see Naughton and Schache alternating week in and week out as the tall with the bag of goals. If we ever have a game where both kick a big bag each, then damn it will be a sight to watch. Will take more time for them to work around and compliment each other.
"Mr Naughton sir, please accomodate yourself in the space I have vacated to mark and goal, your kicking action is exquisite. I should only sit back and admire it."
"Oh dear Mr Schache, surely it must be your turn to accumulate six points for the team. Most humbly I beseech you, outstretch your magnificent upper limbs and grab the ball while I discombobulate this lumbering ox of a defender into row X."
Next to that Domino's pizza joint there is uighur (Chinese restaurant). The food is brilliant. Don't waste your hard eared $$$And the luck continues... I received an email from Domino's to rate the pizza and service. I didn't open it until this evening but decided to reply. My review was not very good. I think I grabbed their attention when I wrote that it was the first and last Domino's pizza I'll ever have. About ten minutes later I got a call from the manager. He thought I had ordered it tonight. After he aplogized he offered me a free pizza, whatever I want, for pick up. Hmmm... dare I? I hate making important decisions.
Axiom of transitivity never fails. Ha, ha,...TBH if we didn't win against Port I don't think we beat Geelong.
The Port game was an away win in the rain where we laid 109 tackles, season record. Port had beaten Geelong the week before.
It was the closest thing he have to the 2015 Swans SCG victory with the current group.

An Irish an with an Italian name?There are 2 types of teachers, Sharpiesdog
Thomas Curnow. The Chalkie who flagged down the train of police at Glenrowan in 1880, Vale Ned Kelly
Eamonn De Valera. The Maths teacher who led the rebellion against the British Empire for freedom in Dublin 1916.
A teacher's duty is to educate. Teachers are on duty 24/7
We have a few like that. Bont and Naughton were born in late November. Their birthdays are only just before Bailey Smith's.If he was two weeks younger he'd be the no 1 pick this year.
He is proper tough, stands up in contests and keep his feet. Absolute star.
What’s frustrating up on level 3 is that we play the slow, measured build up game, then over handball and roost it down the wing anyway, or straight into the chest of an opponent. You think to yourself ‘we as well have just kicked it long in the first place before they got set!’ Bev frequently drops pretty much everyone back to pressure, so there’s no forwards to kick to. But sometimes we have players especially Schache, running onto leads that get ignored due to ponderous over possession. And only the Bont, McLean or Suckling have the vision to kick to a long lead. Our other mids are sadly conservative, if they’ve got an opposition player in their front field of vision he acts like a 20 metre wall they can’t peer over.Meanwhile, back on topic ...
There's a tactical issue that often gets raised in the game day threads (GDTs) but only occasionally analysed in any depth during the week. That's our kicking strategy in transition from defence to the f50.
Saturday night's GDT went nuclear in the first half when we kept turning over the ball with short passes at both ends of the ground. Then there was Trengove's clanger in the final minutes that resulted in Hawkins' late goal.
The usual knee-jerk response is something like "FFS, just kick it long!!" or "Stop fiddling around, just kick it deep into the 50 and hope Naughton can grab it!"
Sometimes (e.g. in Trengove's case) the long kick is the right choice. However it's not always that simple. From memory I think MD has made some pointed observations on this earlier in the year.
....I wouldn't mind thoughts on this from those who get to the match most weeks, because you don't see the game unfolding quite so well if you've only got the TV coverage.
Basque-Spanish. Dev was born in New York of a Spanish artist (or so they say) father and Irish mother. Brigid Coll, brought up in County Limerick by the Coll Family. That he was an American citizen saved him from death by firing squad. He's a massive figure in Irish history, politics (Fianna Fail) and culture.My first car was a Hillman hunter.

I had to Google to find out what a Lada was. I have to admit the idea of a car that the owner can work on is intriguing and the Vesta is not a bad looking car. However, I don't think I can get one here in the US so I won't even get the chance to make that bad choice.What can I tell ya. People make bad choices but it doesnt mean you're a bad person....necessarily.
My first car was a 1957 Morris Minor paid £27. Next car was a 1952 Austin A40 Somerset paid £15. When I emigrated to Australia I paid $1200 for a 1948 Austin A40 Devon, there's inflation for you. My favourite ever car was my 1973 Citroen Ami 8 wagon with a huge 600cc boxer engine. Most unusual, a 1957 Messerschmitt Kabin Roller 200cc. Now back to the footy.A fine vehicle, very underrated. In my time I have also owned and driven the magnificent Chrysler Charger and the world renowned Austin 1800 (with the brilliant "east-west" engine that mechanics raved over).
LOL, I also owned 2 Ladas. One good the other crap. Basically a Fiat 124 with a Russian re-tooled overhead cam engine. In the 80's in England, the Lada and Polski Fiat (125) were the poor mans car. Traded my Citroen for the first Lada (a 1200 wagon with a vinyl roof!).I had to Google to find out what a Lada was. I have to admit the idea of a car that the owner can work on is intriguing and the Vesta is not a bad looking car. However, I don't think I can get one here in the US so I won't even get the chance to make that bad choice.
His long reign over Ireland in conjunction with his mates the priests and bishops sounds suffocatingly oppressive.No wonder half the population fecked off.Basque-Spanish.

I gave Macrae and Naughton top votesyep - that's what I saw as well
