Not having crumbing forward going for mark of the year all the time also help.

What are you talking about? We still have Crozier
Unlucky not to be paid that mark, Crozier. Was a ripper.
Yes clearly marked it and would b contender for mark of the week.(Crozier).was hoping tabs would get a run a bit earlier in the year,he has certainly added an extra bow to the forward line and his ruck work has been very competitive,allowing sandy more rest
Send him back to Halfback , just like the punishment Walters get playing mid instead of forward .
True but I'm not sure our clearance rate with him in there. Might just be my feeling.
Was generally very good yesterday but that bomb kick to Hill late in the game with 3 Tigers near him was a shocker.
He should have taken that option sooner/quicker - sometimes we've had free options and out guys wait for things to backfill instead of moving the ball forward and honouring the free player
Key forward - was too used to walking back slowly (usually to take a shot), but had to get back quickly while players were flooding back as his free/running options were drying up.
I'd know, I was a serial offender doing this in jnr footy whenever I took a mark up the ground hahah
With a couple of minutes to go in that situation the plan would be to soak up as much time as possible and if there is no clear lead kick down the line to a pack and then either get the ball out or lock it in. He did the hold up part ok but then kicked to a small with 3 on him. The coaches would have been pissed with the kick but over the moon with the mark.
He was looking over his shoulder (to the corridor) as he walked back, if he saw anything useful he might have done something earlier - other than that, eating up time was the correct thing to do. BHill was a poor choice of target - But I think he would have been hoping for the ball to get moved over the line for a throw in - which would eat up more time.
Make it simple , a poor decision to kick it to b.hill who had three taller players in front of him .
It ended up being a false 'safe option' as all players try to hug the line when in doubt, but a tiny Hill with 3 tall Richmond's nearby wasn't a good choice that time.
However, if you look at the vision, he doesn't have a lot of options. The real issue is that he should have waited just that extra few seconds for players ahead of the ball to give him safer options. Most of the options are still running away from him when he kicks it and Richmond were better setup than we were. After deciding to take his time, he should have taken all of it because there was basically none of our players ready for the kick except Hill who was then out of it pretty quickly.
2 goals, 11 possessions and 12 hit outs. Not bad for a quieter game.
The issue really is that he should have gone for a longer option. If in doubt, if you're going to kick it down the line, go long. This at the very least means that our forwards will be able to get to the contest to try and get it out of bounds.
Walters ball use is great from the middle. I imagine ballas will help the forward line even more when he comes back in (given tabs, kersten and cam all stay)
Contested marks and set shot accuracy
I think it is Mathews 50th AFL game against the Pies this week, Congrats on the achievement, as many on here have written him off,
yet he is still getting a game.
Should be a dry day so you would expect a decent showing, but by hitting that milestone, he has played enough to be judged on.
Lets hope he keeps on defying the odds.
The verdict is in... and it's not good.
He played a shocker from what I saw in the second half. Could not mark a ball to save himself.
He can just **** off. No more chances. Peel to the end of his contract then ship him off.

Cost Freo the game today.
Can't say McCarthy or Kersten or any of our forwards really had much of a chance today when our midfield/half backs were turning the ball over and had flat out horrible entries/kicks.
Don't be quick to jump on the hate for one bloke when there were plenty of passengers out there today.
I am not sure how much more evidence people need.The thing is that if they play him next week against a poor side and he kicks a couple,all the fan boys will be saying how wonderful he is.
Depth at the very, very best.
Think the forward line works better without him and his rucking is just non existent so why bother?
