    If you accept that it's still very low-budget in terms of commentary and graphics (although generally enough detail to pick out face-scanned players easily), it definitely plays a fair bit more fluid than Live 2 etc. If you zoom the camera out so you get a good view of what's in front of you, you can create some nice passages of play. As for trading, I hope they never change:

    lol.

    I actually really love the micromanaging aspect of campaign(er) modes so I'd want slightly more realistic trading scenarios. The player ratings look a bit dodgy too, Ibbo the same as Jesse Hogan is a little odd. Probably end up buying it soon though since the handball chains and that do look pretty fluid. Even if the handball animations look like someone trying to dislocate their own shoulder.

    I have a video of Sandi absolutely laying out NicNat, snatching the ball off him, strolling in and kicking a goal. Trying to figure out the easiest way to upload it. Game is worth it just for that hit.

    Went to go buy Evolution for PS4 and both JB hifi and EB games had sold out. Put my name down for one on back order. Game sounds popular!

    JB's stock hadn't arrived when I went to the Melb City store on the 5th. Did a digital download for Xbox One instead.

    How even is this season? It's making the neutral games really exciting to watch.

    I still find it a bit difficult watching Gold Coast games. Seeing Micky in a Gold Coast jumper will never feel right (even though it was beat for our club).

    That Jumper is just too baggy for him.

    Just watching Sunrise and the AFL results continually coming across the bottom of the screen shows that apparently WC beat us by 10 points yesterday.

    The WC trolls are everywhere but channel 7 are full of them

    Norf have made a rather gutsy (gutless?) choice as their Grand Final captain...

    (hint: he's on their bench)

    Wasn't sure where to post this but I found it surprising we're 14th in the league for turnovers, a complete turnaround from last season although I have noticed we are leaking goals like a sieve from stoppages.

    If the midfielders start getting in top from the first quarter we should finally start to see some big wins. We've kicked big scores this year and are scoring more freely (as evidenced from our comeback wins) so if we can stop the opposition scoring so easy I expect to see our first blowout win soon.

    Lyon: “Sometimes it’s just as simple as ball watching after an error - don’t worry about it and get on and help us get organised.

    Rewatch the first half and check who is ball watching .

    In the essendon game they had a +1 at stoppages whereas we were more defensive. I wonder if it's a strategy thing for us that's causing the results to be what they are - like rope a dope

    I don't think it's the +1 that's been killing us. I've noticed it in pretty much all the games this season that it's taken one or all three of Fyfe Mundy and Neale to switch on and when they do they bring us back into the game and then onto the win. If they could be switched on from the bounce we may well not find ourselves having to play catch up.

    This game seems to make for some wacky stat lines. Like a guy played a whole game with zero handpasses and kicked 32 goals

    So what is it then that takes them half a game to switch on

    Are we lighter? You'd suffer in the early arm wrestle but have more run later.

    I'm not too sure but it doesn't look physical or structural. I think it's mental and that's the coaches job to prepare them to be mentally ready. It just seems they let it drift to a point where it requires them to switch up a gear and they duly step up. I haven't noticed us matching the +1 at the contest when we've turned the games but I do see an attitude shift in the players. They look to put in more effort.

    I drafted an 18 year old, 182cm ruckman who already had a maxed out (99) ruck rating as a new recruit. He lasted to pick 34.

    I think mainly it is because we aren't starting with our first choice midfield (Sandi, Fyfe, Mundy, Neale) often in the first half. With 1 (or more) spending time forward and giving the younger players a run through at the start. Come the second half and those four are spending more time in the middle (often as a team) with the younger players resting forward. As much as the shiny new toys are exciting they are not as effective in the midfield.

    What's the point if we're playing catch up every game though? Wouldn't it be better to start with the A Team and once we have a hold on the game, then put this kids through the middle? Maybe it was because Neale and Fyfe were coming back from surgery and injury?

    Maybe. Or maybe in a development year, they are trying to work on the younger players taking ownership. We know that those 3 mids can play. We are trying to work out who else can.

    Welcome Bigfooty to Freo's newest supporter. Mini Seppo is 1 day old. About to sit back and watch the game on my mobile in the hospital with him!
