Giants with all their injuries would make them the most vulnerable. Lions are making their home a fortress don't think they have lost at home this year.So, who would we be more likely to topple? The Giants in Sydney or the Lions at the Gabba? My head says neither, but I would lean towards the Giants on their current form.
Yes, but don't tell anyone, let them think they've just had a down day and that in actual fact we're not really very goodI get what you're saying, and there is some truth to it, but I don't think it's that simple. I think we cause the other team to look poorer because of the level of pressure our guys have been applying the last few weeks, as well as the intensity the game is being played at. This really takes it out of you - it's part of the appeal of the quick handball hot potato strategy we've adopted, in that it forces the opposition to constantly chase while our guys are relatively stationary. This saves our energy for the quick bursts, while also tiring the opponent. Tired legs means poor goalkicking.
I don't think it's just "luck" that we've come up against Collingwood, Port and Geelong sides that all looked to be underperforming. I think that was more to do with us having control of the game and having it played on our terms, rather than just getting lucky and having 3 top team at their worst
Agree. Sweet's coming along quite well for a 21yo. I liked his ruckcraft. Is he Bevo's type though? Roughy and in particular Campbell struggled to get games even when we looked undermanned in the ruck. If he's slow like Campbell it won't augur well for him.Jordon Sweet was monstrous today dog-watch worked his ass off against a bigger man. Morris was
quite secure as well, West did not excite me that much.
You are probably right dog-watch at least now Bevo is seeing the errors of his ways early in the yearAgree. Sweet's coming along quite well for a 21yo. I liked his ruckcraft.

Sweet has to be taking marks around the ground and getting more clearances to earn a promotion. But at 21 he has time to fix that side of his game as long as he has the mobility.
Adelaide are making finals, have you seen their dream run home?We need to replace one of GWS, Adelaide or the Bombers. The Bombers are the only one we could get on percentage
Bombers for 1248 against 1219 Plus 29
Dogs for 1275 against 1345 - 70
So we are 99 points behind. We want the crows to belt them say by the tune of 50 points next week and for us to beat the saints by the same and if the tigers beat the power at home we in the eight has earlier as next week.
Before I get a reply Strong correlation of post to user name.
I saw him live for the first time today - I labelled him a plodder. Not sure how his ruck craft would stand up to AFL level but English is much better around the ground.You are probably right dog-watch at least now Bevo is seeing the errors of his ways early in the year
particularly against Collingwood 18 to 10 hit out advantage to Grundy at half time about 60 to 10
by the end of the game had to change it and has, but using Naughton is a worry.
