    This would've been Walls's favourite article to write, given his long held antipathy to both Worsfold and Essendon.

    He thought Hurley should have been thrown in the ruck during Q3.

    Who gives a **** what Walls has to say. Old fossil who's past his use by date and is no longer relevant in football.

    I've found him refreshing on SEN if I'm honest.

    He must be the worst commentator I have ever heard.

    I can still remember him applauding the Melbourne Football Club for appointing Grimes and Trengove as captains. I thought at the time it would destroy their careers as they had not even established themselves as players let alone captains.

    He is an absolute potato.

    Funny he's critical of Hurley not playing on the best forward. It's the same role he played under Hird, Bomber and now Worsfold. It's made him a 2x AA defender, not sure his role should change Wallsy.

    Footy media is full of guys who are so far removed from the game it's s joke. I don't care what Walls did 30-40 years ago. Gerard Healy was a Brownlow Medallist... back in the 80s. Dermott was another great player... from the 80s... and who has never tested himself since (ie coaching). David King - good player two decades ago, failed as an assistant coach. Wallace destroyed the last list he was in charge of... but is the List Manager on radio. Lethal Leigh at least coached this century, but his time must be close to up.

    Time to just move a lot of these guys on.

    Woosh is very conservative IMO. Not much the coaches could do in that final, Players didn't put in. However he should have done a sheedy and swap back 6 with forward 6 bar Joey.

    It's not Woosha's fault Hunter doesn't play for Essendon.

    He rates with John Farnham as shortest retirement vs farewell tour.

    Should've thrown Fantasia in the ruck.

    Long running hatred of Worsfold, no surprise he comes out with this swipe and conveniently forgets that the Bombers actually made finals with a list that most didn't rate very highly.

    This.

    Remember him hating on WCE pre grand final rematch in 2007 round 1. He wrote a big article on how everyone hates them blah blah blah

    " do the footy world a favour Sydney and give them a flogging "

    Eagles had half their side out and won by a point. Cop that Walls you bitch.

    Hates Worsfold alright.

    Walls is just regurgitating shit we all know from 10 years ago. Woosha has never been a particular strong matchday tactician, he's a great backer and motivator of players.

    Does this peanut expect people to take his articles like this seriously? It's very well known that he's had an agenda against essendon and worsfold since the Stone Age.

    It's how a lot of the best defenders - Rance, McGovern - pretty much all besides Talia play and it makes sense when a 2nd or 3rd option can restrict their opponent but it became pretty obvious on the weekend that Buddy was ripping the game open and I think coaches are far too stuck in their ways if they don't make a change.
