So you're saying North were shit last year and yet with finals beckoning you could not beat us, twice.

The short hand version of this is:

Melbourne Football clubs mental fragility vs North Melbourne cost them finals.
You're not wrong.
My comment is still very true.
Norf clearly have the wood over us but you'd be kidding yourself if you'd rather be you blokes than us.
Norf - Still irrelevant, still shite and still going nowhere (except Tassie hopefully).

Mate, we both know that Norf will win tomorrow by 186 points.
I don't think so this time. I would be surprised albeit pleasantly if we did win. St Kilda were pretty shit last week. Not sure that was because of us or they were just rubbish so this week will tell a bit for both sides

As a neutral observer it was a little of column a and a little of column b.

North had really good pressure and structures last week and some solid contributors all over the ground. But when you had the ball in hand St.Kilda applied no pressure whatsoever. When Saints had the ball they panicked and put themselves under more pressure.
I saw plenty of plays where a contested ball would fall into your guy's hands and you had two or three saints around just standing their flat-footed, you guys took the chance and scored. Last week it was a game where whichever team could do the basics of football better won. Saints were horrific at that, and North were solid.

North are always a chance because of their bookends. When you have Brown Waite Goldy Tarrant and Thompson you are a chance in any game if you can minimize the damage in the middle. Because we are an inside dominate side and that's never been a problem for north it's why we have struggled

Think that's why we've elected to go small up forward this week.

Has Goodwin blinked here? Your selections this week appear to be reactive to our structures and geared to not losing instead of winning. Maybe I'm reaching.
Maybe but there's nothing wrong with that, considering we have lost 17 in a row may swell try something different

I don't think so. We've struggled with defensive height the last 2 weeks, especially against Geelong. Your talls are much better than anything the Cats have. It means worst case if you have all of Goldy-Waite-Brown in the F50 they have a matchup.

The two players dropped have been quiet and the two players picked have been in decent form. If TMac was fit we'd be going taller up forward for sure.

Had a horrible dream last night.
With less than 4 mins to go North hit the front.
I threw my beer schoner on to the footpath in Disgust.

To quite Terry Wallace " if they win today, i'll Spew up!" (Of course i changed his direct quite a little bit)

understand hunt dropped, but surprised pedo dropped.
Was pretty good round 1 and provided the chop out in the ruck also
