Youd think the lions would have this from here?

Are they a threat in september? Or will their finals inexperience see them become a deer in the headlights.

I cant see them drinking.their own bathwater like the dees continually do.
All those young players playing their first final, and the club's first final since 2009. It could be a case of stage fright ala Fremantle 2003 and they shit the bed. I get the feeling that could well be the case.

Agree about needing to be sensitive and careful when reporting or discussing suicide.

However there is no chance it was an accident sadly. Drove up the freeway to the bolte bridge (which has barriers, but I am not sure if they were there at the time). Had to climb significant concrete barriers to be able to get off the bridge. Was also reported that he was lucky to hit water as he was close to the river edge.

Hoping he is in a better headspace and feels empowered to ask for help, as should anyone who feels they need it.

That's the thing. It can be obvious beyond reasonable doubt that it was a suicide attempt, but unless you actually have some concrete evidence then you don't report it as a suicide attempt. You need to be able to cover your own ass and prove it if people question it.

I think winning one final will see the Lions out. They won’t get to a prelim. Richmond, on the other hand, are starting to concern me. 12 months ago they seemed to be the best team in the AFL - and if they enter finals missing only Rance...

I would love nothing more than to play richmond in a grand final without rance and see JK kick 6 and win a normie.

Ehh they are still playing the same style.

Ultra pressure on the ball carrier. It's nothing new. It had the same strengths and weaknesses it had before.

Why would we want a player who is disrespectful to his coach ........ even if it is Lyon. He wouldn't fit our culture and was beaten in the derby by a player who, allegedly, should not be in our best 25!

Played junior footy/west Perth development squad/colts with Brad. Still see him surfing every now and then.

He’s got a very high sense of self importance. It’s quite remarkable.

Strikes me as a front runner. Looks good when the side is on top but doesn't contribute
The Cockburners have a number of these types.......Matera, McCarthy, Wilson etc..
