Feeling optimistic about our season ahead. Think we’ve recruited well and our list is ready to fire. Excited to see what we do*

*guaranteed to come 12th now.

Would you say, “ready to rock and roll..... but just not in Round 1”? :p

Like you I am feeling optimistic. I wished it was with Charlie in the forward line but he won’t be ready until the second half of the season. He has had some rotten luck with injuries. 😞 Charlie and Harry in the forward 50 would be quite frightening when it comes to fruition.

We need a few of Setterfield, Dow, SPS, Fisher etc. to really take a big step forward in their careers to achieve anything. Still far too reliant on cripps. Not saying the 4 mentioned can't improve there's clear upside in them. Just need to do it regularly and be pushing for top 5 in the B&F, currently don't think they've finished top 10

Saw a lot of that in the Freo/WC scratchie as well. I don't see why you would give any fu**s if you are the man on the mark since you can't move.
Using the above example. Nothing stopping the player kicking for goal from running 10 meters to his preferred side and then just playing on. It will take some getting used to.

Nice interpretation of the rule. Award a 50m penalty as the set shot kicker is still preparing to take his kick.

30 umpires, 30 different interpretations.

Brayshaw is the worst commentator I’ve had the misfortune to listen to. Won’t be listening to his games, that’s for sure.
