We have seen a change across the whole competition over the last couple of weeks.So I said it the game day thread.
We are coming out very strong in the second half of most games, and looking poor in the first half.
Are teams throwing everything at us in the first half, we weather the storm and then up a gear in the second half? Is it a tactical ploy?
Of the 2 players that have faster 3 goal blitzes, did one or both of them include a double goal due to a free given away after one goal to essentially give them 2 in 10 seconds?Positives :
Intent ,Focus and attitude has certainly changed to go 5 wins in a row ..well done
Jack Darling BOG ran hard ,competed well and took contested marks,kicked goals was unstoppable..well done
A good team effort overall..well done
A quick mention of Jakey’s 3 goals in a whirlwind 2 minutes has registered 3rd fasted 3 goals kicked in succession for AFL history ...Well done

Yeah I saw that too but on a closer look realised the "small child" was in fact Caleb Daniels.Not football related but a big negative, spotted in a smoking area outside the stadium, a pair of parents wearing Bulldogs colors both with a cigarette in their mouth helping a small child suck on his ventolin puffer, WTAF.

Dogs supporters. Basically the real people portrayed in the Chopper film. The heroin addict mom and Jimmy Loughnan are related to Danny Southern. Enough said.
Good points about petch. I do wonder if he is tiring as the season continues.Totally understandable but some of Petch's efforts are pretty piss weak currently. Might be fast and coralling but hes not putting on actual tackling pressure.
Runs under the ball when he could mark it. Doesn't like the high ball, even when he's in the clear.
Very soft attempts to tackle, sometimes he even refuses and just let's the ball carrier run past him as he "man's up" someone else.
Would love to get an NRL coach/player in to work on his tackling technique or something in the off-season.
Pretty interesting to hear Schoey chime in on the Coast to Coast Podcast. Saying last year Jack said he needed to simplify things he didn't want to or need to know what the backline was doing. Too much for him to process.When Darlings at his best he's just a nightmare to match up against. This game just proves it. Young the hybrid defender (similar height) struggled to handle him in the air and 1v1) but guys like Cordy and Trengrove just got exposed through endurance and speed. The same thing happened against the tiger last year. The tigers game was something else tbh. He bossed the talls like Rance/Astrbury and just made a joke out of Grimes, Vluastin and in the end Broad.
JD has immense talent but being a confidence player, he needs to be performing at a high work rate every week for him to do so. Not the JK sort that can be coasting but still kick 5-6.
Also JD's is a genuine threat at boundary throw in. He just bosses bigger opponents out the way like they're nothing.
Jack is like a 69 Camaro. Sexy af to look at, and packing plenty of power, but no intelligence like EFI or ABS.Pretty interesting to hear Schoey chime in on the Coast to Coast Podcast. Saying last year Jack said he needed to simplify things he didn't want to or need to know what the backline was doing. Too much for him to process.
Hopefully Jack is back baby
Watching Caleb Daniel live is quite amusing. It's like watching a child play in under 14s.
**** me he's got skills though. Damn fine player.
