Also rates highly for both intercept possessions and spoils, and has a contested 1v1 loss% of only 15 this year.

But apparently everyone else who was out of form before Brad's departure was a victim of the gameplan except for him.
Mate, you're preaching to the choir. I mean, yeah, I do get frustrated at his obvious deficiencies, but for the most part I rate what JMac brings.

I, too, am looking forward to seeing how he goes under Shaw. My one reservation, however, is that what the team under him so far prides itself on, that absolutely relentless attack on the contest and the man, isn't exactly in JMac's wheelhouse. But with a better structure around him and simpler instructions when he has the ball should hold suit him well.

I think any player is entitled to a chance under a new coach before being written off.
Very good call TD.

Except: S.McCann, M.Arceri, R. Scott, S.Clayton, S.Watt, S.Gibson, J.Macmillan, M. Wood and a warm BigFooty welcome to the newest member, S. Durdin.

In my time in this country, they have been the whipping boys who have had many doubters. Thankfully for them, they don't get their cars burnt out or physically threatened like they would back home for underperforming/not living up to expectations.

Hey guys, what corruption scandal do we think will hit the Bombers next?

They've done salary cap a fair bit, done doping.

Is the Charity Regulator making sure this "kids with cancer" stuff is actually going somewhere other than a Tullamarine slush fund?
Is it me or is it everytime we play * they always have a charity game/ fundraiser they do a couple days before the game? Just seems like they try to make out they are a wonderful club.

Now that we are a day away from the game, it feels like a day before the final. Weird.
Hope we can do it, it will make up for a lot of crap we've had to endure this season.

How many times has he sold out a team mate under pressure or turned it over? How good is this bloke with an average of 5 turnovers a game... this is an actual fact bud
Your only sensible almost rational post.

Let's see how he goes under Shaw, if he fails and we lose, we know who to blame.

I respectfully declined.
