Sammy and Titch doing some extra sessions together during the time off over NYE....anyone else see that on IG?
Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Would would it be. (it's conditional, so it wuld be base on a certain condition. It would be Joel Selwood, if he played for Hawthorn and everyone else was dead.) Will be is definitive. It will be Cooper Hodge.Who would have been our conditional past Captain?
If there is a conditional future Captain who will it be?
I still feel with the addtion of Wingard and Scully into the team, our midfield is stronger than last year despite losing Mitchell.Going to really earn his money this year to make us competitive in the middle, losing by far and away our best midfielder for the entire season.
I was hoping we'd be able to use him more forward to take some pressure of Gunston and Bruest, but alas probably won't happen anymore.I still feel with the addtion of Wingard and Scully into the team, our midfield is stronger than last year despite losing Mitchell.
I reckon he'll be better for us as a 60/40 mid/forward, mainly because of how we set up (no big forward) & how we move the ball around the ground.I was hoping we'd be able to use him more forward to take some pressure of Gunston and Bruest, but alas probably won't happen anymore.
For someone with Bruests skill set it has always puzzled me why he isn't more effective at center bounces.Bruest is rather average in the middle, so hopefully he doesn't spend to much time there.
Breust is great at judging the ball in flight, in space and at arriving at the contest at speed - think of his great crumbing goals - most are incredible crumb, then a pretty simple snap. I don't think he is actually that quick, just an expert at manipulating space and timing.For someone with Bruests skill set it has always puzzled me why he isn't more affective at center bounces.
He has speed, awareness in traffic and a killer don't argue. A great mystery and a rare criticism of a super player.
People that want Punky to be a full time mid seem to think that 50 goal small forwards grow on trees.Bruest just lacks the endurance to play midfield, a player like Buyrgoyne who has a similair tank can get way with it due to his elite speed, Mitchell can get away with it due to his incredible endurance, Breust just can't sustain his elite qualities long enough to play full time midfieldto that level. He probably could be B class mdifielder if he was played there full time but as a small forward he's elite.
I got a good laugh when the media proposed Dangerfield or Martin ect could kick 100 goals if they played as a forward full time, seemingly with the logic a small forward position is significantly easier, it's not and to have a small forward that can impact week in week out is such a rare commodity they would have to be a dangerfield or an Ablett to be worth playing elsewhere.People that want Punky to be a full time mid seem to think that 50 goal small forwards grow on trees.
I think he could be better than B grade as a mid but I agree he is elite as a small forward.
Clarkson is about using players as best suits the team
