I have in yes, and made him fit though he was a ruck more for us.

He’s a far superior player in my view, overall than Travis.
Travis was high level, at one stage as good a contested mark as you’d see, but overall David was fantastic in my view.

Just a personal preference.
Good stuff,
I was not necessarily opting for Travis but your choice in David surprised me a bit. Can remember him as a lion hearted trier, not the greatest kick I have witnessed. Great team though.

Lycett has risen to my most hated player after last night. He tagged Grundy. The amount of dirty punches and constant niggled directed to Grundy. Really annoyed me.
Disappointed the boys didn’t stand up for Grundy.
Grundy got the chocolates, but he’ll be an extremely sore boy.
Did that in the GF and that big Reason why Eagles Pipped us. Took Grundy's Influence out of the Game

Fantastic player. He left Just before I can remember him clearly.

One of his sons was born the same day he was sacked.
I don't remember the exact details but my granny is a distant relation of Frank Bluey Adams from Melbourne and got a jumper swap with Des Tuddenham so she is now in possession of an original game worn Des Tuddenham jumper... hoping I inherit it lol.

She's 94 so I guess one of the few left that actually saw him in the flesh as a little girl...
That’s nuts*

She’d be say 10 or so where she’d see him in his last couple of years and he was terrific all the way through.


* word “nuts”used as Gordon Coventry was known as Nuts. (For young players at home.)

That’s wonderful.
Be a nice way to remember her many years from now when she leaves as we all do.

She's the maddest Collingwood supporter out, never got into the internet though but catches every game either on TV or the radio. She can talk equally about today's players or from the 1930's and 1940's, it is nuts lol.

Reid was great.

The thing with Cox is that he can take a big mark down the line when needed and is a better relief ruckman.

Things went well for us last night, can Reid be relied upon when we are having an average day?

Roughy/Darcy are teaming well, but is there space for Reid to be a back up KPD?
Cox will take you a big pack mark, in a big moment.

Ben Reid, not so much.

Are you going father over son at CHF? I was pretty young, but my memory of David was that he disappointed up forward for us, but did well as an undersized ruck.

When asked about playing Cox and Reid in the forward line Bucks noted Mihocek’s mobility. Don’t think Mihocek gets dropped for Reid at any stage but suggests they might be open to trying all three at some stage.
Whilst Reidy had a great game, to me he looks nervous as hell when taking set shots inside 50m. Not so much a worry when we are dominating but unless he improves his set shots it could be demoralising in a closer contest. Reminded me of Travis Cloke a bit last night.
I have no such worries with Cox or Mihocek inside 50m.
No such worries with Cox's ability to kick goals from inside 50? Is this because you have zero expectations of him, having watched him play in the past couple of years?

Curiously, Malthouse reckons we’re the only team in the frame for this year’s Premiership. He sees WC as having dropped back, and considers us to be much better than Geelong (hmmm, despite them beating us round 1!)
While giving respect to what Geelong have achieved thus far this year, including a demonstrable win against the Eagles, we outplayed them and made a tonne of uncustomary errors in round 1, having gone in with a number of underdone players like Howe, Crisp and injured Grundy. We were clearly the better side that night for most of the game.

I guess my expectations of forwards are simply that they kick more goals than behinds. At the moment I have more confidence in Cox than Reid to do this.
