The glimpses Ah Chee has shown in the last few weeks is interesting. He can bring a lot of stability, and then flashes of brilliance I reckon (in time, of course). The thought of him, Charles, McCarthy and Coleman together is something that could be exciting. I wanted to see his mark in the highlights comp.. but the AFL would rather see Zorko smother with his face, or one of the Pies more tepid goals..
I do not rate Ah Chee and I probably do mark him harder than most do as a result. To me he has not delivered anything more than a few guys outside the 22 who have done the work but have not got the chance. He has been playing forward and apart from round 11 he has scored exactly zero goals. He rarely even gets himself into position to have a shot at goal. He is prone to make some really ordinary efforts and despite being billed as a running player he does not get himself into good position to receive much nor are his skills particularly good (they are solid but nothing more than that).I really enjoy your posts Quigley but you give Ah Chee a serve every week. I reckon he's been really solid all year , has genuine talent and will really improve . Don't see his spot being under any pressure at all.
The rest of it I agree with . Love what Coleman can bring , just that extra bit of bite around the packs. He'll take a lot of confidence out of tonight's game.
It was mentioned previously, but that explanation from the umpire is ridiculous. He supposedly saw what Robbo supposedly did, and if so, then if what Robbo did deserved a free kick paid against him then pay it (I suspect it did not). That however doesn't give carte blanche for Maynard to do whatever he wants to an unsuspecting player without any ramifications.
The umps officiating this game should be dropped or at least front the media and explain how this was not a free kick or why they judged the incident solely based on the player.
Lyons BOG and second best for the respective coaches. Interestingly, that means Pendles was BOG for one coach and third best for the other.Brisbane v Collingwood
9 Jarryd Lyons (BL)
8 Scott Pendlebury (COLL)

2 Oscar McInerney (BL)
2 Jack Crisp (COLL)
Been awhile since Lachie polled well? Just wonder if he might get pipped for the Brownlow. Hopefully he can gain a few cheeky votes against lesser opposition.

Interested to see if the AFL makes issue of Robinson’s raised foot in the marking contest where he collects Maynard and Neale’s contact on Moore.M Robbo to get cited for staging
I am interested in the report.Has the MRP finalised their review of the game?
I can’t find anything
From round 10 onwards, he has only polled 15 votes in total (from 6 games), 10 of which were against the Bulldogs.Been awhile since Lachie polled well? Just wonder if he might get pipped for the Brownlow. Hopefully he can gain a few cheeky votes against lesser opposition.
McStay will be back to the forward line next week. We witnessed how much difference his absence makes when he was suspended. Crucial player up forward for us at the moment. And last night a crucial player down backI still think from a team standpoint we'll prefer him there. Moore down back along with Mihoceck and Cox to deal with forced our hand. Unless we moved Lester up the ground because he's a forward.
