I don't know why people complain about the food prices. It's the easiest thing to substitute for (before during or after) and it's trash anyway.

Demand for drinks would be fairly inelastic imo.
Really? I'd have thought it'd be more elastic than "fairly inelastic" but maybe that's just me (as a customer)

The clubs keep raising membership costs because the SMA keep raising running costs.

They make **** all from food and drink.
Yikes

The cost of food and drink isn't going to suddenly start keeping people away.
Not when you can bring it in for free

Has also now kicked more goals for us than Carlton, in 60 less games.

One of the best recruits in our history.
Remember when we were going to bring him in, and people were like, nah?

Definitely calling for the ball.
There is no way he can tell thats going through.
I’m not suggesting he knew it was going through, I’m suggesting he was going an early celebration based on what Eddie does best.
I reckon there would’ve been hundreds of supporters at the game that saw what was about to unfold and went early based on Eddies history.

Could do.
Would like to see the video

Just given his position it looks very likely he'd be calling for a square up kick.

Only player in the league you'd back to kick that more often than not.
Its about 10% for everyone else 60-70% for eddie.
Yes. Eddie's kick was "routine". There have been no comments, however, on the most important part of this goal: the brilliant tap-on, which was the only reason Eddie got to take the kick. This was also "routine" for Eddie, but is not something that anyone else in the team (and wider) is capable of. These set-up taps are the most important characteristic of Eddie's game.

On SEN the other week Maher had was naming the All Australian team for this year made up of players that had never been AA before. I texted in numerous times naming Brad Crouch but they didn’t want a bar of it.
They’re looking totally f***ing stupid now.

AFL Coaches disagree with you...Adelaide's leading player from Rory Sloane on the AFLCA leaderboard....and likely to be in the coaches votes again this week.
And he’s starting to kick important goals when we need them , that’s a new element to his game

He’s prob been our most consistent player this year and hasn’t missed a game unbelievably !

Not terribly relevant, but if you want to go down that path then there is enough overlap between their forward and midfield games that Greenwood can force Douglas out after tonight’s effort.
No , we need an elite runner in that role . Any of Jones Ned and Knight is the go

I’d be happy to use them all at different times and see who nails the spot

I've already demonstrated I think that he had put the arms up before he had kicked it (the photo is post boot, but he couldnt have gotten his arms up in time).

That would be an early celebration indeed.
