It is a bit stiff that the third “Tap on the ground “ doesn’t count as a bounce in stats, even though it counts as a bounce in the rules.

Gotta love it when a Victorian teams coach complains about their opponent not having to travel.I had a listen to Johnny Woosha Worshfole's post match presser and he bristled a bit when one of the local hacks (probably Capel or Porter) asked him why he thought Port Adelaide weren't rated as a realistic chance. Worsfold was probably thinking "here's the good old South Australian pissantry I remember". I was starting to like him when he told the scribe that you can only beat who you come up against, everyone's only playing each other once, blah blah, but then he spoilt it by saying that Port doesn't have to travel, can sleep in their own beds, etc, so they've every right to be top.
Annoyed with the line of questioning, he got back to cataloguing the excuses for Essendon's dismal 2020 campaign.
