A bit of credit needs to go to Newnes as well...Tippa was away and it was Newnes who charged across to force Tippa to sidestep into the Parks tackle. I watched the replay and our wingers Newnes and Cottrell were really pushing back into D50 to help our defence.
He flew by Plowman to get there too who was barely in a jog.

Falls over in the contest then coasts around not trying to make up for it leaving his man 1 on 2 until another team mate comes in to take on his man.

Not sure if you watched the actual incident. Plowman was 15 m away. Jones (ess) knocks it from Parks to tippa. Parks starts working back. Tippa easily steps Newnes but doesn't realise that Parks has worked back. Parks buries tippa and gives him a bit of afters. Plowman is 15 metres away but comes in and stops Jones (ess) remonstrating.
Did I miss something?

What? He didnt leave an opponent unmarked 15 metres closer to goal? How dare he.

Just for clarity in this thread on Parkes. Yeah great hits and all, but giving him credit for a hit on Rozee is probably a bit of a stretch considering he didnt even play. But if he is knocking over guys from the sidelines, he is pretty damn special.

Next week :thumbsu: ;) :laughv1:

It is coming I have no doubt, the way he played in VFL showed him and all that saw that HE IS GOOD!!!!

LOB could be following same trajectory we hope. Been very good.

Newnes and Gibbo both need VFL time and these two can stand up and more than fill these spots.
Their time has come, been a slow burn but here now!
Paddy’s coming, not far off clicking & putting it all together...

I'm loving little Fogarty. I like the fact that even on a relativity quiet day he still kicks his couple of goals and gets 15 odd possessions. Tackles were down yesterday.
He is the only player on the entire list who gets into the right positions to kick an opportunistic goal these days. I'm not talking the Butler/Betts out the back goal, I'm talking a proper front and centre ball spilling out a stoppage swoop.

If we hadn't gotten him, we would still be releasing the ball from those situations. He's done more this year to improve us than Williams and Saad have, IMO.

He got some nice touches pity he went off.
I think our club is like a smoldering Volcano that's about to erupt (or maybe I'm describing me).
There's a few words sitting on the tip of my tongue, that are going to be unleashed with hot fury towards a couple of smartarse oppo supporters I know.
C'mon Blues let it click, I'm ready to rampage.

Gibbo was horrendous by foot, but, need to look deeper into the disposal efficiency

Equal 1st for i50 tackles
Equal 2nd clearances
3rd for pressure
Equal 3rd for contested possessions
Equal 4th tackles
Equal 5th I50
Equal 6th score involvements

11 other players had the same or worse clangers and turnovers

Think he stays in the side this week, again

Thought Levi once again drew a defender so H wasn't double teamed

Equal 3rd for inside 50's and 6 score involvements, equal 6th for pressure acts and 7 of his 11 possessions were constested
He was excellent in the third q, need him to start clunking them consistently again.

I was at the game and turned off the radio ABC 774 commentary with Brendon Goddard gushing all about Essendon and saying "we" instead of "them" First time I have ever turned off the ABC.

Although, I used to turn off Rex Hunt on 3AW, couldn't stand him. Brian Taylor is just as bad. Must be something in those sashes.
Commentary is at an all time low. Dopey ex players dribbling agendas or Mcaveney/Cometti wannabes screaming their tits off to convey the fact that something exciting has happened. Do they even understand that it’s a visual medium?
