No won't help crowd, but if it is hot like it has been it helps our chances of winning.

to be fair 2011-2014 wins....4 of them were a given it was against gws and gcs who were cannon fodder then (GCS still are but for different reasons)
I like your thinking
Be interesting to compare average games per player in each era.....think there would be a big difference giving hope to a much brighter future.
His improvements been covered a little bit but just looking at Bastinac's stats since the bye: averaging 19.4 disposals, 7.3 contested possessions, 3.3 tackles, 2.9 inside 50s, 1.5 goals, 6.3 score involvements and 306.7 metres gained a game. Whilst that isn't going to get you in the AA team it's precisely what you want from your second stringers, particularly with the contributions with scoring. Fagan seemed to be pretty firm with him in the first half of the year and it seems to be paying off. Very pleasing.
His goal kicking accuracy has been phenomenal. In fact second most accurate goal kicker in the league. This really helps when we are trying to build momentum within games.

He was written off before the season started and his first several games didn't exactly refute the suggestion that his career was going nowhere. It has been a really good turnaround.
20 touches and a goal is a good return for a wing/high half forward type.
I remember watching him in a scratch match at the beginning of last year that he had this knack of bobbing up at either end of the ground to get the footy and then he'd do the right thing with it. One moment he'd be an option coming out of defence and next thing he'd be in some space going inside forward 50. He just seemed to have a good combination of work rate and footy nous.
He's still no star and he occasionally makes an error which drives me to distraction but he's definitely entrenched in our best side now. Credit to Basti for finding the answers to a pretty significant form slump and credit to the coaching staff for helping him get back.
The test for Bastinac next year and whether he remains entrenched in our best side is when Robinson and Christensen are back, we retain Rocky, draft a gun midfielder, possibly bring in Cameron or similar top talent and guys like Matho, Keays, Berry and Lugga become more automatic selections. At that stage I think both he and Lester will be under pressure.
Competition for sits who would have thunk it!
^ yep pretty good that "Lester and Bastinac" are under pressure and Bewick and Bell have gone from regulars in 2016 to irregular in 2017 to probably last few spots on the list in 2018.
Fox Footy Power Rankings we have been last every week for the whole year except this week we have jumped to 14th! Huge jump.
Not much competition for balcony, I find the view is the best.
Hipwood is a star - and at every training session our boy Harris is going to be right on top off him. Best development pathway for both of them. So going to enjoy watching this pair over the next 10 years.
It is a good year(for the Lions that is), next year will be even better.
I believe we have so many positives, that we need sunglasses for the brightness !
Eric Hipwood the first guy over 190cms to kick 30 (+ hopefully) goals since Brown in 2012?
And 2 goals behind Zorko in the race for the club leading goalkicker award.
Dayne Beams is back to his All Australian best.
If we were a finals side could we produce 35k members?
We have now won 28 quarters our mist since 2013
We also won 28 in 2015, although barring a disaster, we will eclipse both 2013 and 2015 next week.
27 in 2015
