    My tips,

    Ainslie
    Giants

    Whats the go with Coaches for 2014, I think Rourke (Ainslie) is the only one signed. Not sure about Hills and Uni.

    I hear Ainslie have had chats with Burke from Eastlake to get him back in their Footy Program, Footy Manager role???

    Lets hope we dont get a Swans v Giants GF.......:(

    Seems a bit sad, doesn't it ?
    The likely Eastern Grand finalists are the two teams that none of us is very interested in, and they're not fussed about winning anyway.
    While the other seven teams that have at least a little bit of support, just can't cut it this year.

    And next year, the led will be out of the saddlebags of Swans and UWS, and our other six teams will be stretched even further.
    I don't see how we will be able to compete.

    The NEAFL is the worst of all possible options for elite competition......apart from all the other options.

    Follow the NEAFL stats on the website. James Bennett looks like one of the biggest ball magnets I've ever seen. Is he an absolute gun?

    Swans easily accounted for Belconnen today. It was hard to find a Belco player who stood out, though I thought Lokan tried hard all day. They-who-know-these-things nominated better players that I wouldn't have gone with but, hey, what would I know anyway ?
    Harris was a disappointment. Ran on with the leg bandage from hell and looked like his leg was mummified. In the first quarter, Swans played a top-up on him (who isn't usually a defender anyway) and Harris hardly got a touch early. Belco persisted in playing to Harris, even though it was a losing move and it took a while for them to figure out that they needed a PLAN B. Lokan ended up playing forward and that was where he made his impression on the game.
    Too much pressure and sustained purposeful running from the Swans led to way too many turn-overs from Belco.

    The Swans with 12 listed players and ten top-ups were a mile ahead of Belco with 22 listed players. And it will only get worse next year.

    Good to see that Ainslie cleaned up the UWS - I'll be interested to hear from anyone who was there and can report for us.

    On the couch

    Hi all,
    Been back in Oz for a few weeks now and decided to pop out to see first NEAFL game for a year or so out at Blacktown.
    Belconnen were never in the hunt, in fact looked ordinary and if they finished second on the ladder then Id hate to see the bottom sides play. They fumbled all day and agree with above that Lokan looked the only player to match intensity & skill level of game but he is hardly looking fit?
    Swans kids looked much smaller in stature but simply ran,ran & ran all day. Magpies players simply didnt man up on opponents at stoppages / kick outs or centre bounces - they rolled the dice all day and got spanked
    Speaking with Swans staff after game Jetta only played 50 minutes , they then also rested Lamb in the last and a few others. So last qtr was virtually 7 or 8 listed most of who are first year or rookie listed.
    There were some on the field in a Belconnen jumper that looked totally out of depth, particularly their defence where the Swans chipped the ball to each other with ease
    Tim Membrey looks a good type kicking 7 and only god knows why Belconnen stuck with no12 on him all day ? he got a bath and was too slow and short for Membrey - a bizarre match up
    Due to the warm weather it was obvious The Belconnen boys were absolutely spent by games end chasing tail all arvo. But some look very unfit and overweight for this level or maybe i was comparing them to some of the skinny whippets they were chasing all day??
    My Eagles were poor most of the year but had a reasonable last 4 or 5 games but it was all too late according to club friends and need to really ramp up to be competetive next year, a few at my old club are quite nervous about the concept actually as many dont fee we have made the step up in the Eastern Conf yet , let alone going into a full blown comp adding another 7 or 8 quality sides.
    No easy wins like Tuggeranong or possible soft cross conference games anymore
    Eagles board believes we need at least 2 -3 more AFL & 2-3 more state league level players to take step up
    2014 will determine whether the club continues at this level - both financially and physically draining on the club at present

    ZZZ, you might be right about some of the Belco boys being a bit unfit, but did you notice the style of SHORTS they were wearing ? Baggy and a couple of sizes too big, especially Lokan's.
    I had to check twice to be sure - the Swans wore the typical tight "Tippett-type" shorts but Belco looked as if someone had left the bag of shorts back in Canberra and they had to scratch around for any ill-fitting pair that they could find.

    Either you are James Bennetts unfortunate looking brother or in fact the big headed 'star' midfielder himself dishing out his stats to pump his own tyres.

    My money is option A

    Heard today on the grape vine that Hills Eagles have parted ways with Dragicevic. Anyone know any more details?
