The thing about our defence is it’s the sum of all parts. Our defence has been missing Rance, Short, Astbury and Houli (?) at times this year. The fact we got to the bye with a positive win loss record was remarkable.
If we didn’t have guys like Broad playing, I guarantee you, it would of been even worse again. He has had a solid year. He’s a lock. And it appears the tiger coaches agree with my sentiments over the knockers.
Broad and Vlaus allow Grimes to play his game. Grimes and Vlaus allow Broad to olay his game. Grimes snd Broad allow Vlaus to do his thing etc etc.

That’s true, which is why I say that he is affected by Rance’s absence. I just want a little more from him. I feel like he isn’t defending well nor offering something else around the ground such as CPs or game-breaking disposals. His form isn’t to the point I want him out of the side because we don’t have a replacement for him. I just want him to offer more.

His stats that you quoted for the GWS game were pretty solid though so hopefully that’s a turn for the season. Our whole backline played in a way that I haven’t seen since last year so it looks like we may finally be gelling together defensively without Rance. Exciting!

Synergy. Where the output of the whole is greater than the sum of the individual efforts.

If you have a settled, predictable defence, you're half way there.

Watching the replay, did anyone else hear the umpire tell Lynch to stop intentionally wasting time when lining up for goal in the last qtr, you get 30 seconds and when you just stand there using it all up you get told off.
And yet Ben Brown can start his run up from the center square and take a full minute before he kicks.

He cant play like he has before, as he is getting in the way, he will have to play fwd but he needs to compliment it, not create problems. he laos is needed to pull his finger out in the middle too.
I think Caddy should base his game on Adelaide's Tom Lynch ,playing the lead up half forward and target for our defenders coming out of the backline .Jack could play similar too Tex's role only better and Tom Lynch similar too Jenkins and we have the small forward's to compliment them .

It's bizarre but I think if they catch you clock watching they can move you on. So open for interpretation

I heard it on the replay, and I laughed.

It’s his 30 seconds let him use it anyway he bloody well wants! :D

This guy gets it ^^^^^^
Hate to quote myself here, but thought bubble happened.

Remember when Rance went down? When we got smacked by the Pies, and Grimes and Astbury were pointing and yelling at players? The system had been broken with the Rance injury, and it took time to resettle (as well as other missing parts in the next period)

Now everyone is back in a groove, it's working again. Is Broad a superstar? No. He's an important role player. Anyone watch his gut running on the weekend? He ran so hard he spent 3/4 throwing up. If he (or anyone else) comes out now, it happens again. An adjustment period. Now is not the time, we can't afford it.

Everyone knows exactly what everyone else will do. Expected behaviours play a massive role in everyone being able to play their role. Vlas/Grimes/Dave/Houli/Broad/Shortyu can all do what they have to because they KNOW the others are doing what they need to. They TRUST each other. No knock on Garth, but the others didn't know EXACTLY what he was going to do. It affects his performance, and the others as well.

This is doubly important in defence.

Let's smash Port and send Kenneth on his way.
