I was just stoked to see Marshall hit packs at pace and complete over and over. Someone mentioned before, he has found the intensity which he needs to bring every game, and if that is his base he will have a very good career.

Good game from Marshall. How was the overhead mark running with the flight of the ball! Love his mobility, smarts, balance and foot skills. Still think he will be a beauty. Some are saying he is too slight - while shoulders and chest will never be huge he has put on some good size and is strong through the thighs and glutes with a low centre of gravity which means he is great below the knees for a big man. And don’t forget he is still only 20!

Kane Farrell’s kicking action is an extraordinarily work of art...very, very impressive.

I know there are a lot of Atley knockers on the forum but his inside work & ability to accelerate away from congestion is A Grade. Watch Rocky lumbar around against Norf, complete liability & tell me Joey isn’t a better option? Yes his kicking is poor, but at least he’s not an invalid.

He seems to lose a bit of momentum 2 strides before kicking and then ends up leaning back a bit. Definitely needs to work on fluency over the offseason.
Strange, all year he nailed everything, just putting it down to an off night where he lost a bit of confidence, I'm very sure he will bounce back

Ladhams and McKenzie clearly our 2 most impressive players in the game. McKenzie again showed he has something to offer after finally having an injury-free run. I hope he gets another year but get the feeling he'll be delisted.

Drew was OK, gets in after it but a lot of his disposals are scrappy, hacked kicks, much like our regular AFL mids. Hope he can improve on that to have a greater impact. Frampton had a shocker, never got to where the ball was and looked disinterested. Marshall competed pretty well but his disposal was disappointing, very sloppy.

Overall, good to win but certainly nothing to write home about.

Yeah I don't hate Atleys kicking
Sure it's not great but at AFL level where out of bounds = throw in rather than free kick I'm content to go with it

Running into his opponents back after they take a mark is basically Fogartys whole game. I don’t think he has ever missed games for it yet. Serious dud.
He’s obviously an elite set shot but it’s hard to see him making it in 2019 and beyond. Would’ve been a fantastic footballer in the 80’s. He’ll be kicking 100 goals a season in 6 or 7 years for whichever Div 1 clubs wants to pay him the most.

Wow ok then lol
Read it again. If they take Duursma at 15, McHenry is definitely not there at 19. If it weren't for us snagging Duursma they could have got both, not just one. Hindsight is obviously 20/20 but their plan nearly worked.

Outright i would take Duursma > McHenry if i only had the one pick in that area, but they had two picks and went for the guy who was definitely going to be off the board first (McHenry) and hoped to get Duursma with 19.

So they did miss pick your words . Doesn't even matter crows could of had hately and duursma if they didn't miss pick and how do you know McNugget wouldn't be there at 19 .
Anyway in my opinion they could of got alot better for those 3 first rounders if they didn't miss pick.

A mispick would be selecting a spud, i cant take you serious when you call someone 'McNuggets'.

My preference would be duursma > mchenry if you had a single pick, but they didnt have one pick they had two and had planned to get both, and nearly did get both. Ill stick to my original statement that all three will be good players for the crows, if you want to see mispicks go for Galluci and Polholke for them

Out of curiosity how many games have you seen McHenry play?if you are basing your entire opinion off last night's game that's a yikes

Good win and now onto the bays. I can just imagine the melts if we can get up.
It's going to take a hell of an effort to get the bays and the umpires.

Hopefully the Crows get up because the civil war caused by a Bays/Crows final will have them eating their own. Especially if the Crows knock the Bays out.

Is McHenry that Tassie dude?
Probably picked him as Tasmania would not be a go home factor.
Will be funny if Tassie do get a team in the next few years.
