    Mind you, when either geelong or the bulldogs lose next week there is room in the eight for us if we win. Are we actually really good? Are we practicing winning close finishes, because as we know ross's fear of losing a close game is hol
    You might not be rushing things at all as it seems. Those who dare win as they say.

    Just watching the replay again. Why does Martin get to drop the ball so much?

    Watched the third qtr replay just now. Grey's tackle on Cotchin was a thing of beauty. A couple Tigs were playing keepy-offs assuming Grey would give up.

    They got that wrong on a few levels.

    Kersten's interview about the practice they do in the '2 minutes left' scenario was interesting - he says that practice it each week

    Maybe they need to practice bursting out if the blocks and kicking 10 goals in the first quarter.

    I don't think it's been mentioned by anybody as yet, but when you watch the Mundy final goal, take note of where he takes the mark and where the mark is finally set.
    From what I can see, Mundy ends up kicking on an angle about 5 to 10 degrees tighter (about 5 metres closer to the boundary) and about 5 metres further out than where he should have. On the replay you can clearly see when Mundy takes the mark, then the opposing Richmond player stumbles forward a couple of steps, falls on the ground and puts a divit in the ground about 5 metres after Mundy marks it. You then see the umpire initially set the mark fairly close to that divit, but then with Mundy's back turned, you see the umpire walk further across to the boundary to set the mark a few metres further around (to make the kick more difficult).

    I mention this, because I have previously posted how Freo need to get smarter by quickly getting the umpire to clearly show where the mark is, both when kicking over the mark and when standing the mark to reduce any chance of umpire and opposition cheating/bias against us.

    Lucky for us, Mundy was still good enough anyways.

    As soon as Mundy took that mark, was pretty much certain he would nail the kick. He's just that calm and confident within himself. Ever since that miss against Geelong in 2014, he has really matured. Such a beautiful kicking action too. Never in doubt

    You're dead right. You can even see the divot on the ground the richmond defender made in the contest a few metres to the right when mundy is taking his run-up.

    I don't think that Mundy has changed at all - he's always been a cool head. I just think that people reference the Geelong kick in the same way they do Fyfe's goalkicking from the 2013 GF

    In fact if Mundy had of set the mark against Geelong he would have kicked it. Joel Selwood crimped over the mark by about 3m.

    Last few games I've noticed a few players pointing out to the umpire where they've taken a mark, particularly Johnson who we all know loves a good point.

    What I think was amazing about Mundys goal is that when the Richmond goal was kicked the ball went over his head. He then obviously runs the length of the ground and then has the composure to mark the ball and kick the goal. After a full game of football. Amazing
