I think we need to be weary about thinking that our outs are the difference between win's and losses this year. Gunston coming back for example isn't going to suddendly mean we are a 5 goal better team and all our forwards will click, especially when it's our midfield getting pantsed and at times providing sub-par delivery to our forwards. Sure he'll provide some forward structure when Clarko actually plays him there but we didn't see a lot of that last year either so I'm not buying he'd make that much of a difference now.

At most we'd maybe snag one more win and be 2-3, anything more and you're dreaming.

Thankfully for us, we have a truckload of Half backs on our list that we could actually facilitate a move of both Impey and CJ into the middle/wing. Sicily still to come back, Granger-Barrass to come in to the defence, Greaves can play there, young Pepper is showing a fair bit at Box Hill in defence, whilst Will Day will also come back later this year. Its one area we do have depth!!
‘plus we have maginness and Downie who looked pretty complete in the pre season. Actual wingers but potentially inside/outside as well

So it happened ONCE? Not really an issue. Also it's inside 50. You win the ball there you have a shot at goal. A better example would be stoppage on the wing, this is a terrible example.

Sorry you've wasted so much time to find nothing but you've just countered your point.

You might have better luck trawling instead of trolling.

Here is a video of us at a stoppage...from last year basically doing the same sort of sh*t and all players going to the ball and leaving demons on the outside.

Red under 24, Green 27 and under

All these players will be on the list for another 5 years, the vast majority will go close to ten years.... but we're not young durrrrrrr.
It was raised this morning that we have 3 players under 21 currently in the side.
Based on where our list is at and others in a similar predictament, is that number enough?
Noticeable absentees are Lewis, Day, DGB and maybe Jeka, Downie even?

Currently Sydney, Freo, Adelaide and North have 6,7,8 and 8 players under 21.

All about perception but admittedly, we don't have a lot of talent in that demographic bar the above mentioned.

You asked and he showed two very good examples of us collapsing in, while the opposition holds their position.

Learn to admit you were wrong. It's not hard and you'll be a better person for it in the long run.
hawks were pretty good at locking the ball in f50 most of q1 and whenever it got down there in the rest of the game - but not as often

Surprised every week we have to have slow mo replays to understand what happens at a game that didn't agree with fantasy football.

Watching a game of football and working out for yourself why we are losing or in the old days winning probably shows why you need slo mo replays.

I'm going to watch and post the SECOND stoppage once I'm done with On the Couch.

I posted the first and second stoppage of the game. I don't see any over committing like you say.
Like literally you have to be joking about the first one. I analysed it. That was what I posted. Someone already pointed this out to you and you still bang on about it. Go to bed, roby.

Idk what you did to Roby and his Bloch Sphere but I get the feeling he doesn’t like you very much
