    Positive that losing someone of Rocky's calibre isn't so crushing because of the talent we have at the club now, Rocky has been a great servant of the club but he is in his prime at the wrong time for us.

    That's just mean. Love the idea that footy is back... But there are two words there and you got half of them wrong, and my inner grammar nazi is shuddering. I like the post, but I cannot like the post!

    We kept the Saints to 107 points keeps our average down from last year.
    And also Walker kicking a goal in the dying stages to keep me in the Man who shall not be named cup.

    The advantage of picking Bell is I get a week of competition out of the way before he gets dropped!

    Huge positive... we won centre clearances 17-12 and stoppages 27-15. Definitely something to build on...

    it really is a turnover problem. Might be better holding on and getting htb against us with a fraction more time available to set up defensively. Gotta try something.

    Don't disagree with you... but check the thread title! Causing opposition turnovers, now that would be a positive.

    Berry, nrobbo and Cameron all good today. We were competitive with some of our better players quite poor.

    Berry is a positive. I think he might go past Harris as the future skipper. Very Joel Selwood like.

    Hugh McCluggage had his career best game according to AFL player ratings. He and Berry seem to have gone to the next level if the first two rounds are anything to go by.

    I’m hoping these next two games speak about our development. We faced both these teams early last year and late last year with noticeable improvement between them. Both margins were cut down overall and we just played better footy. Looking to hopefully not backtrack on that this season and to improve of the margin of defeat again.

    As an actual positive, it’s great to see the 2016 class performing so well. It shows us that improvement in coming with new strategy and focus. Important to remember that it is easier to create good habits with young blokes than to change up habits of older players. So it’s a learning process for all of our younger players. Taylor and Robertson and really coming along now and I feel like some credit should go towards their habits changing for the better.

    Understand what you are suggesting - the 7 teams that gave us our worst/heaviest defeats in 2016 all went on to play finals. PLUS, the tiggers worst/heaviest loss last year was by 76pts, against the crows. [might bookmark this just incase, for a Sunday positive? lol]

    We certainly need Zorko and Beams to lift this week......and we do have MRobbo back, so that's a plus.

    Dixon only kicked one goal. Was honestly expecting 7+ from him.

    The whole game today. Even the 3rd. But most of all the last 2 minutes. We were the controlling team - not just falling to the line. Best performance in years.
