And the message from mainstream media is heavily controlled and dictated by big businessThe guy who made the video (Friendlyjordies) is very pro-Labor but he's also very anti-mainstream media. It's not really a left vs right thing with him, he just thinks mainstream media in pretty much all its forms is inane garbage.
Last year he said we had too many changes to gell and make finals. This year we had 1 less to the list but more to the best 22 and he now reckons we can do a Bulldogs 2016.
Last night was first time. Reckon its got to do with The Voice on Monday night is coming to the end and those finals go longer, and also trying to piggy back off the state of origin lead in. Reckon its only a 1 or 2 week thing.When did they start having that show on Sunday night instead of Monday?
I'd just take Adelaide or West Coast umpiring at our home ground year on year. Despite Ken's shortfalls we would have made top 4 in 2014 and finals in 2015 and 2018 with equivalents of those perennial rim jobs from the umpires. When you equate how much finals, both in direct revenue from hosting and associated boosts in merchandise sales, memberships and therefore sponsorships, Adelaide is given a head start year on year of 2 - 3 million. Ken may be happy to sip the Coke and collect a pay cheque, but for a supposedly astute finance 'guru', Koch sure is dumb on this.If we copped the umpiring that the Dogs did in 2016 we'd be in the frame for a premiership now.
He said our list is similar to the Dogs in 2014. So we're well positioned to push for a flag in two years time, not this year.Last year he said we had too many changes to gell and make finals. This year we had 1 less to the list but more to the best 22 and he now reckons we can do a Bulldogs 2016.
Deserves a nod IMO.
Anyone listen to SEN the other night? Charlie, 5aa's resident Collingwood caller rung up and started to complain about Stephenson's suspension claiming it was far too harsh cause he self reported.
Rucci straight away batted him into a corner saying if he played any other sport that he would've got more than 22 games he would've got 2 years+, and that he wouldn't have got more than half of them suspended.
|If||genuine, all-in passion was the key to last week's potentially season-shaping performance against ladder leader Geelong ...|
|then||the Power are going to require a different motivation if they are to do as expected and follow it up with victory against the Dogs. Potential danger game for a team that doesn't always consolidate big wins.|
