    Noticed this the other day too, definitely a possibility to happen this season with Cloke, Lipinski, English and Lynch all plausible debutants.

    Is this just listed players? Or players who have made a senior debut only?

    Teia Miles was their 917th player to play for the Mayblooms.

    They are miles off the pace.

    hey guys I looked at the AFL stats 2017, and I know its early in the season, however we are near the bottom for marks i50.
    Does anyone have any concerns? I was hoping adding cloke would help increase marks i50 particularly with toyd

    Given our set shot goal kicking, it's probably a good thing!

    I can’t dispute that, we are the worst side for set shot accuracy.
    However I wonder if our low marks i50 is due to our mids lack of penetrative kicking or our forwards marking ability.

    Neither imo. The game style we play doesn't lend itself to a lot of inside 50 marks.

    Freo have lost eight of their last ten games with their two wins coming against the Bulldogs.

    The pattern could repeat when you look at our fixture

    North and Lions at Etihad, and then GWS away. Pretty much had us 5-1 or 4-2 in the first few rounds

    Excellent memory sir. Having visited the State Library earlier this week, I can confirm that the June 15, 1992 edition of The Age backs up your memory of Del Re in this match.
    I also discovered that Simon Beasley kicked 5 in a quarter versus Melbourne in 1985, so I have added these two instances into my table at the top of page 2.

    Also whilst at the State Library I spent some time reading reports of some of our great victories. One game I was interested in was our win versus Carlton from round 10, 1978, when we came back from 35 points down at half time to win. When reading the match report from The Herald, one paragraph caught my attention which related to the second quarter:

    "Carlton, defending against the breeze, had seven men to five in their defence, and Footscray had no chance to penetrate. It was a tactical blunder by the Bulldogs and only two goals in time-on reduced their lead to 35 points."

    There are two things about this paragraph which grabbed my attention.
    Firstly, shouldn't the journalist have used "deficit" or even "margin" instead of "lead"?
    Secondly, in kicking those two goals in time-on to reduce the margin to 35 points, do people agree that this indicates we were actually 47 points behind before making our comeback?

    Another major factor about this game is that Melbourne had two players who had to withdraw prior to the commencement of the game. Allen Jakovich had to pull out after injuring his back that morning, whilst Peter Rohde was called to his wife's hospital bedside after she experienced pregnancy difficulties. Somewhat ironically Jakovich would later play at Footscray in 1996 and Rohde coached us from 2002 to 2004.
