Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Particularly with a premmie, the lung development would have been impaired. Much higher risk of lung infections early years.And could stay out given the risk of playing footy atm and having a young baby you might pass it on to.
(The 0-5 age bracket higher incidence of developing severe covid19 than older kids - in study just released - though not a huge study in numbers).
If we are running and gunning I'd rather have had Clarke in the team than Ronke - at least he runs to the right places continually.
They clearly came prepared to go and had won the game after 15 minutes. Took the foot off and cruised the rest of the game, then turned it on at the end when the score started to get too close. Sign of a good team when you can win like that.Agree but they did it from the first bounce
I guess we see things differently then. I think they play a very similar style of footy and aren't really dangerous with it when they get it in there. Just how I see it.I don't even see why they couldn't all be in for the same centre bounce. They are three very different players. Kennedy is an inside clearence machine. Hewett and Parker are more versatile, Hewett can get his own ball or play a more shut down role, Parker has both an inside and an outside game.
So... just to clarify...Yeah I'd drop Hewett and play Parker 50/50 fwd/mid.
That's correct, Hewett has peaked and his impact is ineffectual on the game each week. Yes also to Warner, exactly the style of play that we need in the engine room.So... just to clarify...
You don't see a spot in our team for a player who has just turned 24 and managed to produce games like these at AFL level in the last couple of seasons:
22 possessions, 12 tackles, 5 clearences (Rd 15 2019)
29 possessions, 5 tackles, 9 clearences (Rd 9 2019)
34 possessions, 6 tackles, 7 clearences (Rd 7 2019)
24 possessions, 6 tackles, 12 clearences (Rd 23 2018)
25 possessions, 5 tackles, 10 clearences (Rd 20 2018)
20 possession, 7 tackles, 10 clearences (Rd 15 2018)
28 possession, 5 tackles, 10 clearences (Rd 10 2018)
And instead think we should build our midfield around a player who is 18 and has never played at AFL level before?
Did Hewett run over your dog or something?
Writing off the possibility for improvement from a 24 year old who has improved each year of his career to this point... doesn't make much sense to me. Maybe you are right, but I really don't see how you can have such high and low expectations of Warner and Hewett respectively based on exposed ability and output at this point.That's correct, Hewett has peaked and his impact is ineffectual on the game each week. Yes also to Warner, exactly the style of play that we need in the engine room.
