I would have picked Berg over Frampton, too, and ultimately think Berg is the better long term prospect. But stoked that Frampton is performing because it is forcing Berg to grab the spot back. He'll either do so, or wilt, which we need to find out anyway. Competition for spots is everything.
I think we have all been a little seduced by Berg's month of footy late last year

Outside of that patch of footy he has mostly struggled

I want to see him dominate sanfl before he is considered for AFL selection

Patrick Dangerfield sent straight to the Tribunal, with the hit classed as severe impact
It's interesting. It was classified as reckless, yet his eyes are clearly on Kelly and not the ball. He made a deliberate decision to bump him. Should have been intentional.

The cynic in me suggests that it has been sent to the tribunal so the MRO doesn't have to make the decision...

Anyone else notice that after the Dangerfield hit on Kelly, Walker got the ball and Selwood was actually on the mark. Then we had the forced injury break and when we came back Jenkins was on the mark. Thats terrible umpiring. You can't swap people on the mark. The Umpire should be crucified for allowing the rule breach.

I'm yet to watch the full game, so will comment when I do, however the one pleasing thing looking at the stat sheet is seeing Lachie Sholl getting 24 disposals, 9 marks, >450 meters gained and yet 3 tackles. Seems like a very good offensive game, and despite that, Sholl was putting the effort in defensively. Stuff like that is what will prevent him becoming the next Atkins (which is where I have Lachies floor at the moment).

His first half was a brilliant mix of offensive running and defensive coverage on the wing but he probably did have a couple of ‘Atkins’ moments in the 2nd half when he got a bit more tired especially with some important missed tackles that led to Geelong goals.

Unlike Pyke and particularly Campo, I don't think Nicks would allow an Atkins type soft contest shirker in the side

At least he had a month of consistent high level footy - that's more than Fog & Frampton have achieved between them.

It was one of our best wins & even better to be there to cheer the guys on as they did us proud. We should be rejoicing...

Now I'm going to get back to watching the reds up with 2 early goals.

There were already too many posters off topic... hence my simple post to calm the farm. Not going to help by adding further fuel to fire.

Reporting isn't a silent measure either.

screw the reds (might still be filthy over their win over the Brumbies last week)

If you’ve woken up with a hangover after yesterday’s great win. I’ve got the cure. Jump on the AFL website amd click on the round so far.

You can actually see the moment Jane’s heart rips in two when the other guy says he needs to eat his words, instant hangover gone
Mitch Cleary. He's a good dude.

Make no mistake , albeit a small sample size , this new side is completely coach driven, you can see the team has brought in to what ever Nicks'y and Co are selling..can only imagine how refreshing it must be for the group, not having to listen to the bargain basement assortment of a coaching panel that was put together.. Let's hope we learn from this, past perfomances for the club equate to SFA when it comes to the future of the current playing group

True. Some of his contested stuff wasn't great in the second half. But it is worth noting that Sholl basically didn't go off the field once we copped our injuries. 95% TOG was a huge effort.

His kicking on both feet is a weapon.

No mate most posters are over you and few of your mates that just come on here to dump on Vader and others ,rather than the rest of us who interact on this site with our views and opinions of the club we support, rather than gutter talk and personal targeting that you and couple of others.
Did you sense a glimmer of hope yesterday with Neddy? :)

I reckon Tim Farham has been an influence with Tex's fitness.

That and some real competition with Tillthorpe, Fog, Hberg, Frampton and even McAsey.


Great to see. A fit and firing Tex is great for our side and in particular the kids playing with him.

I agree but also think the rule change is going to be great for Tex. his leads are elite and so is his kicking.
I also think Tex is so much better as leader and has more influence then any other person in our team. Sloane is nowhere near Tex. I know he had some lean years but when he is up and running, we look super
