norm for all junior leagues pretty much. all my under 18s games will be at like 3 which is bs.
fu** me, didn't know that was even a thing honestly. That's brutal. The leagues down my way always have at least 3 games at the ground on Saturday. Most leagues have 4. (U15s U18s Reserves Seniors)

I'm on the coast mate. Live in Lorne. CDNFL, GFL, BFL. We all played Saturday in juniors.
You haven’t been a junior since the 1920s though

God I feel like a beer. Is it wrong to establish a new Thursday tradition of 3:20 beers? Work sucks. I want a holiday and my colleagues are dickheads. How they can still grate as dickheads after 12 months of WFH is beyond me. It’s elite levels of stupid

This is a vibe.

That said I’ve cancelled midweek drinking for the month. Not doing me any favours.

Every day there is a battle between the co worker stupidity and my desire to drink.

We tried to trade up in the draft to get Zac Butters apparently

But ended up using that pick on Luke Jackson the following year
Even though the move didn't eventuate it's just another notch on Taylor's belt to identify this guy and go after him boldly. Butters is a gun.

Watching Port and Tigs I reckon ya can see we still aren't a top 4 side yet. I don't reckon we can play at that intensity and be infront at the end. We have too many blokes who's skills already don't hold up when there's not much pressure.

I'm talking Oliver, Langdon, Hunt, Lever, Viney etc. We're conceding a high percentage of goals from mistakes against crap sides, better sides will punish us more.

I'm not saying these guys can't be apart of a good side. Look at AnB as someone who went from hurting us to being fantastic with the ball this year.

I think youre right - both on original premise but also on the players being capable of getting better.

I hope thats partly a confidence and trust thing - if they can keep winning or being really competitive against better sides - it will help a lot.

Both Port and Richmond (obviously) have been good sides for a while - while im sure at the back of each of our players minds (like our supporters) is the nagging feeling that this might all collapse next week.

If it doesn't I think we'll see a skill and connection uplift throughout the season.

Real belief that theyre a good team - based on results rather that the inane self promotion and pump ups that happen inside all clubs - will lead to that.
