Nice win by Port. Ladhams mobility and skill was great to watch. McKenzie commanded the back line. Drews last quarter excellent but I dont notice his impact as much as others do. Liked the way we kept persevering despite poor goal kicking in second half. Good spirit in the team. Lokan has done well.

Jones will be an excellent onballer for them, McHenry does all the things around the ground and is coming back from what 8 weeks without playing?
Fog kicked 6 only 3 weeks ago against the reigning premiers.

Crows haven't played the kids but they certainly aren't the mispicks the original claim was making
Go back to your own board.

It was loud on the radio. It was easy to know who scored only by the roar from the crowd. We were way louder.
In case you miss my post .. Replay has been uploaded, just register and watch ..
Went to watch it .. not playing at the moment, Maybe still uploading. Will try later today.

Nah. Nothing special there.
Butcher kicked 6 straight one game.
...and we thought he was going to be the answer to our problems..

Not sure I get the Fogarty hate tbh.
Apart from being a thug behind the ball etc I think he has some AFL ability.

Speaking of how f*n good was Ladhams , first time seeing at SANFL level in a while and he just covers the ground so well.

Ladhams seems to be what people want Marshall to become. Good. Marshall can be Marshall, then: a combination of Hoff, Watts, and Sam Gray.

Sure he has some AFL ability, he is a very good kick of the ball. But you cant get away with sniping blokes of the ball because you're twice there size when your playing AFL.

We have some very good talent coming through, Fredrick will be a good player one day. Not sure where Atley is at, I know he has the talent.
Marty had some real impressive moments, as he has all year. Could develop nicely.

Atley was very frustrating, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde yesterday. One moment he bursts away from traffic, neatly finding teammates by hand or hitting a leading player perfectly by foot. The next moment, kicks it out on the full, over a teammates head or straight to a crows player and gets made to look like a 7 foot ruckman as a crows player just casually steps around him.

Yeah. Not enough is made about how genuinely massive he is. If he played for a Vic club every commentator would have mentioned it 1 million times already. One of the tallest young genuine mids in the game, and he’s a genuine stud in the making.

His form at the start of the year was a huge surprise, had a mid (ish?) year dip where he was still good but his finish to the year has been amazing.
Form suffered when we changed his role because the captain had to get a game after he recovered from his water skiing injury. Drew is a jet, should be one of the first picked mids come round 1.

Yeah Atley took off out of the middle beautifully on one occasion last night. Very frustrating.

Fogarty, Jones and McHenry have played a grand total of three decent games at AFL level between them. They all have some strengths to their game but they all have some fairly significant weaknesses too. There's nothing 'certain' about them developing into good AFL footballers.

Of course there isnt total certainty, never is with anyone. But the games I have seen them play they have been really really impressive, the original post I replied to had gone the extreme of saying crows had mispicked on all three, which is far from.
