We have a lot of improvement in us, but that's ok because we have half a year to tidy up some key areas.

Going into the bye at 9-3 is a dream and we are very well placed.

Really buoyed by WHE's game because he is one I've had in the firing line in the last few weeks. If he plays like that, then he is the cherry on top of a very potent forward line.

Loved Sier's first game back. Reckon he is exactly what we are missing. When Adam's re-joins, I expect our clearance issues to be resolved.

Also, I finally see why Cox is ahead of Reid. It's not so much what Cox does, but the fact that the smaller forwards play better when he is there. Cox draws defenders in a way that Reid does not. He may not be as mobile and may not get as much of the ball. But he does ensure our smaller forwards have space. Our forward line looked good.

yeah that rule is disgraceful they actually also penalised Tom Mcdonald for using his knee in the marking contest later in the game too.

Game sanitised enough without taking the speccy or attempts of it out of the game.
I’m pretty sure they penalised McDonald because they deemed it an unrealistic attempt. The Howe one was disgraceful though.

Nope, the umpire said "push in the back with his knee" when he paid it audible on TV.

Further to that BT had it clarified that the rule is now able to be enforced for any marking contact if deemed possible to cause harm, not just frontal in the face that the rule was intended for.

I’ll have to watch the replay, but I was sure the umpire said that it was an unrealistic attempt at the mark and therefore a push in the back with the knee.
Also, the rule was actually posted earlier in the thread, and it specifically refers to using boot studs in a manner likely to cause harm, not with knees etc.

I have to take my 6yr old "adhd" (gee arent they all now since the ndis gravy train rolled into town 🙄) neice to the gold coast game, my brother decided that was the best and safest game for her to go to for her first real live AFL game to watch. Against my protestations and advice for precisely the reasons youve said above that kept your nephew interested enough not to chuck a wobbly...either its going to be a raging success if we demolish the suns, or we'll probably get kicked out by security. Theyre very trigger happy these days
The reason he was sort of uninterested was my fault really, I decided to eat there 2 and a half hours before the actual game just so I could get a car park lol.

If we would’ve just got to the ground half an hour before he probably would’ve been fine, but I’m a very regimented person haha.

5 years old and only his first game. Discraceful.
Yeah I know, but I took him when he was two, but sort of defeated the purpose really. At least yesterday he was old enough to establish numbers and know how to kick a goal even if he had no idea what was happening leading up to it lol.

I think you'll find the ADHD epidemic escalated well before the NDIS came to be.

Cox just needs to work on those times where he gets moved under the ball in marking contests and just fails to compete at all, he had a few moments in the first half but improved as the game went on.
In terms of Cox, he and we are too obsessed with him launching from the front position. With his height and the umpires now allowing hands in the back, he'd have a field day from behind.
