I've never heard a conversation about footy or cricket that I haven't wanted to join in immediately. If you disagree with me, you'll be made to work very hard to change my mind!

I’m a Parfitt fan, I must admit. Want to see him find the next level soon though.

Questions don't need to be asked of Geelong yet... but they're coming

I wouldn’t be counting on Rohan for anything.

Good stats there Dougie.

Article about Geelong, seems reasonable to point to a famous howler involving the Cats when drawing a comparison.

You’re right though, Hawkins has been screwed over the years with some of his suspensions.

14 times out of 15 it’s the latter.

Feels right.

I don’t think Higgins will be a big factor this year. Cameron could be.

I quite like it.

Enjoyed this.

Great research Chuck, thank you.

I’m not sure it qualifies as ironic to agree with me, just because you think the Danger comment was a cheap shot. The facts are he’s knocked out two opponents in his last two matches.

If you read it closely you’ll see I said the talent was there, and I was right. And Hardwick admitted fault to most of what I pointed out in the piece.

The game has moved away from Richmond

Thanks for the opening K2K and some excellent commentary to follow it.

I love the point about the Swans operating both ways at speed, and I think we’ve seen the same from the Dogs too, in the early rounds. It’s the way Port like to play as well. If these sides can move the ball with skill, and put pressure on the Richmond one-on-one defence, which as you say should be able to adapt, I can see it being a more effective method to score than the current Tiger set-up.

All interesting points, but I have no doubt Richmond will have to find a way to counter the 2021 game in a way they haven’t had to before.

“Found a way” to be the benchmark is a good way to put it, but I feel like this time they will really have to adapt in a way that may not be easy or suit them.

Enjoyable wordplay.

Arguably three bad games, and it’s just that my senses are tingling.

Hard to deny Balme as a key component of the successful run.

All good points, but game style is something else.

Definitely need to reset, tweak, modify, whatever we want to call it. Interesting to see if they do, and how much, and can they find a competitive advantage.

I’d argue that because Richmond and Geelong played later than the other sides, they have higher residual fitness which is actually a benefit in a shortened pre-season.

I’d certainly rather Dusty on my side than against, Dougie.

Just trying to make sense of the early season Macca, and making some calls accordingly. Saints could have had Nic Nat, Simon Madden and Polly Farmer playing on Saturday and still would have been thumped.

To my mind, a gun is not going to cease being a gun because of some rule tweaks, but it may be the next tier or two down that struggle to adapt. Which is the same point as your opening. To me, the intercept marking dominance of some has been as much a standout as the ball movement.

The competitive advantage making Melbourne an AFL premiership sleeper

Petracca is a genuine game-shaper now, regardless of his mid-forward mix. He can make things happen from traffic in a way that no-one else can at Melbourne, and is similar to, yes, Dusty.
