I missed harvey.

You stop Kennedy by beating their midfield. He, like most key forwards relies so much on quality delivery.
Not only did Sandilands pants Goldstein in the ruck contests, he ran Goldstein to the ground till he cramped up in the 4th. So much for being too old.
******* hell, are we trying to outdo our biggest comebacks under Ross each week? The cumulative effects of the last two rounds have wiped years off my life.
In other news. Lol norf.
Let's be honest - West Coast are far from impressive so far this season. I see them in the bottom half of the top 8 behind Adelaide, GWS, Western Bulldogs and Geelong, and alongside Port and Richmond.
Only notable victories against North (0-5) and Sydney (0-5). Have not beaten a current top 8 side. They fell over the line against St Kilda (home) half way through the final quarter and lost to Richmond away.
Possibly no Mitchell as well which weakens their midfield.
I kind of agree with you.
I thought I disliked North because of Harvey, the lying little weasel.
But they have a new unlikeable player. Simpkin gave Sheridan a cheap shot to the ribs during the first quarter - and North got a 50 for it. In the second quarter he collapsed at the knees to draw a high contact free kick. If a kid is playing for frees like that in his first handful of games, imagine how bad he'll be in a few seasons.
Brady Grey had a bit to say about how North players behaved in the game in his post match interview:
Looks like it got edited overnight. But I'm sure he said something like we knew North were going to target our young guys and they did, and we weren't going to stand for it. Can anyone else confirm?
Anyone got a link to the replay yet?
I have watched the "last 2 minutes" about 5 times....Still get a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye
Neale in doubt to play
What? Where did you Hear This?
Channel 7 told me
Did they say why? Seemed to run out the game okay. Thought Hill the only one unlikely.
Yep he made Goldstein look old at times last night. Now teams don't have a second player coming to jump over Sandi at every stoppage he is completely dominant. Looking forward to more taps to the outside. There have been a few this season that if not for a fumble or bad bounce would have led to fast attacking moves.
Shane weighs in
That would be the other half. You want to win the midfield obviously. Kennedy was the Coleman medalist last year with 82 goals. He managed that in a team with an average midfield. The West Coast midfield is rated 9th by Champion Data.
Err... Goldstein went off with an ankle injury. He also had more possessions and a goal.
What is freo's rated ??
I just know you'll come up with a stat to disprove this but surely he got 80% of those goals when their midfield was dominating down the slopes of Domain.
And sandi dominated him. The one goal he got if sandi got those he would get four to five free kicks a game.
Yes so true. our skills and decision making were appalling BUT we found a way to win. Once again Fyfe & Mundy in 2nd half are really standing up as leaders.
RTB keep the faith in the kids - a Wderby is just the ticket to continue there education.
Injured? Doubt it.
You have to give Goldstein more credit. He would have been more influential if he is playing other lesser ruckman.
Watch the replay of last weeks North yesterday game, he pretty impressive in that game, so Sandil surely did a good job. His best game of the season for me...
Haven't watched a replay yet, and Goldstein wasn't that badly injured (he came back on and looked OK) and it was quite late too - so can't put too much on that.
In any case, I think 211 had a good game, is continuing to build after a bog ordinary start to the year - but (raw tap outs aside) thought Goldstein wasn't beaten as many are saying around here seem to suggest. Would give it to Goldstein myself ... but again, my first viewing of the game was very distracted trying to get dinner ready and the rest. I reserve my right to completely change my view of Sandi's game once I get to the replay.
Was worth the day off saying norf on the main board. Had no idea these nicknames weren't allowed.
I get a lump in my pants. Hrng
