Australia's unlucky XI

Whether it’s who’s going to the World T20 tournament, who’s going to New Zealand, who lost Usman Khawaja’s phone number, or how Channel Ten selected the menu in the jungle for Shane Warne’s arrival, the topic of selection is just so controversial at the moment.

I’m not sure how we are behind St Kilda in Power Rankings?

We’ve been pretty consistent. Saints all over the shop

AFL Power Rankings: Round 11

a couple of fair in’s….

Grundy? Rested? Injured? Who’s rucking? Darcy Cameron on his own?

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 12

If we can take care of Crows, Doggies and GWS with dodgy kicking, I think we should get over Norf.

I could end up nuking some plastic in a microwave if we don’t

I reckon he can get maybe 10 goals last few rounds this season.

Then get 25 in the next two after that. He see out the contract and scrap out the 1000

Will Buddy get to 1000 goals?

Does his contract expire 2021? If it expires 2021, I’d be in the no camp,
but if he’s contracted to end of 2022 I reckon he gets there.

What a deal… Where do we sign? 😛

AFL Trades: Is there a serious suitor for Brad Crouch?

If he kicks 60 goals a season three years in a row, I couldn’t give a rats how he achieves it.
If you haven’t noticed, our current forward line can’t hit the side of a Barn if their lives depend on it.

AFL Trades: Is there a serious suitor for Brad Crouch?

I actually don’t mind this shout.

But I think right now, we need a Ben Brown before we need a Brad Crouch.

I remember a story of the Arsenal v Tottenham rivalry and one of the teams having a large portion of their team going down with food poisoning night before a game?

Sick of it: Sport's greatest illnesses

Port are contenders by the fact they are a game clear with % in 1st not just because they beat Richmond.

They’ve clearly been outstanding when they’ve got their game going. And they are genuinely pretty consistent.

Port go from pretenders to contenders in game of the year

Long way to go for Melbourne.

Like many I have to see more than a two weeks to determine whether current performance levels have any sort of sustainability in them.

Adelaide and North aren’t exactly a great form line. Even Hawthorn who they did tear apart haven’t had much consistency about them.

No flag this year, but Melbourne are back on track

I think Brisbane need both a key forward and a key defender. Think we still a bit away from the finished product (Premiership winning team)

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

Absolutely!

But again you choose to highlight just the errors the umpires made.

Not one mention or play by play description of player errors.

Do you hold umpires to a higher standard than players?

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

Every single football analysis I have seen have all shared the exact same opinion that it was a football incident and that Shaw did not have a case to answer for one.

So for me someone is biased, and it ain’t Michael Christian

Take you Tin Foil hat off mate.

Give it a rest!

I wish I could be bothered to go through the tape and go over every mistake a Carlton player made…..

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

They are coming from a long way back. Can’t see them making it to be honest.

I think they have to win 5 of their last 7, with games against Bombers, Dockers, Dogs, Giants, Pies, Saints & Swans to come.

For me they are only winning 4 of those.

Goodwin's Demons back in finals hunt

Come on Chuck, there was absolutely nothing in that.

Complete incidental contact. Not sure what you expected Shaw to do to avoid that contact?
Disappear?

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

Win we definitely needed.

I always thought it was a massive danger game for us especially on the back of our Tuesday night performance.

Inability to convert still not addressed. Yes Hipwood kicked straight for once, but other certainly didn’t.

At the moment we are just a prelim final team. We need to improve to take the next step.

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

Certainly can’t argue that at this stage.

When it comes down to it, we’ve haven’t met the challenge of those Big Vic Teams.

Until we do we can’t be considered serious contenders.

I hope you go through each individual players mistakes the way you are going through each individual umpiring decision?

Cold hard facts, are you once again played some absolutely brilliant footy, but you’ve also conceded goals back to back awfully quickly.

In about 20 minutes there was a 40 point turn around, leading by 18 or 19 to be down by 20 plus.

Carlton has bigger issues to worry about to be nit picking umpiring decisions.

Six talking points from AFL Rounds 10-11

Really good response. I thought this was a huge danger game for us.

Hopefully might also kick off Hippy season.
Amazing the return of McStay has done for the structure.

He’s a bit of whipping boy for Lions fans, but I think he’s a key ingredient to our game style.
Does a lot of linking stuff that doesn’t really get recognised.

Slack last quarter, but think that’s more to do with the back 2 back 4 day breaks.

Fingers crossed, Charlie only needs a little rest.

Chris Fagan praises firing Lions forwards

The reports seem to indicate North maybe interested in facilitating a move for Sideshow Bob.

North Melbourne can rebuild without trading Ben Brown

I hope the Lions have a dip at him.
