my money's on the doorman he's come from a long way back and shitposting strongly, legit thought against everything would have at least 1000 posts in here already, brave eagle next to no chance to dribble their way to this very consequential first to 100

This is only part 3 though - have you analysed parts 1 and 2 as well?

Err...

The anti Hinkley bias is in full view here. If Hinkley wants to save his job he plays senior players. If he wants to do what’s best for the club he plays youth.

This comment is just dumb.
Wasnt youth used as an excuse at some stage last year for our team not performing?

it’s entirely reasonable for a port fan to be concerned that playing youth (which we want) will be used to excuse poor performances.

Performances that might be excusable except that many issues we have with Hinkley (gameplan, selections , stubbornness or slowness to change) etc and problems we have with the admin (talk of accountability rather than actual decision making) etc have nothing to do with playing kids.

now for thee interesting bit:

the doorman form

the doorman has been a consistent performer since he was gelded as a late 2 year old, to settle his frisky pursuits outdoors.
since then has a been a consistent one paced performer who runs with steadfast regularity down just the one racetrack.
get him on another surface and he has little to give
for number of times he has been to the line, cannot be faulted.
occasionally lashes out with a hind leg when aroused.
for some punters is a favourite because always know what going to get from him a solid mediocrity
is well set for the long distance race and is the current favourite at 11 to 10.

The only thing of any consequence in this is thread is whether the doorman or against everything or brave eagle can get to 100 first. All other is inconsequential. It would be much more interesting running a book on this very consequential first to 100 dribbler event.
With English as eloquent as this, I'm guessing you're a Chrisco customer. For the convince.

We'll Mayes didn't play a game. However, we 'played the youf' by making sure:
- Ryder got more games than Frampton, Ladhams and Marshall combined, then got traded.
- Broadbent got 6 more games than Garner, then got delisted
- S Gray got 13 more games than Farrell, Cox & Woodcock combined then got delisted

Hmmmm.
Well Mayes off a knee reconstruction was never playing AFL last year.
Frampton is a hack
Ladhams and only started to find his feet last year and was lucky to be on the list at the start of the year.
Farrell doesn't demand a spot as yet got chances though. His development looks ok.

I think you mean Hayes.

Mayes was traded from Brisbane for pick 35 (received from Hawthorn as part of Wingard trade).

Both Frampton & Farrell averaged more goals per game than Ryder & S Gray at AFL level.

Brave eagle

a lightweight compared to the 2 clear cut outriders
connections are training him for a withering burst from the lesser lights near the 100 mark, but expected too far back in the field to close the gap
an eye catcher in the parade ring with 3 white patches near the hooves and a blazing white on the snout.
has been described as all show and no substance, but ye never know.
the bookies have taken a set against and offering double figure odds
as they say follow the money, but most have sacked this 4 year old entire from being in the winners circle.

Naive.
Too willing to believe that someone is telling the truth that people's intentions in general are good, or that life is simple and fair. People are often naive because they are young and/or have not had much experience of life.

They make the naive assumption that because it's popular it must be good.

So Melbourne Victory have poached a rival coach and sacked him after 13 games, but we’re stuck with smooth brain.
Despite the victory currently in 6th place (last finals spot), having won the GF less than 2 years ago & not missing finals since 2012, yet failure is AOK at old Alberton...
