You’re spot on, and that’s my entire point. I think King can make that improvement, and with the amount of shots he takes. Can close the gap

I’m glad you enjoyed it, it’s sure seeming like an interesting run home. A few aspects should result in Curnow’s output dropping, but I hope not. Seeing Curnow take it out would be great. It’s certainly a strange top-10, a very different make-up than it has been in the last 10 years. But if anyone can make up the deficit, to me Max King only needs a slight change to make a real push.

I thought the same! Although I looked at their run home based on how many goals their opposition concedes. Which weirdly doesn’t line up exactly. Curnow’s run home is the hardest of the lot in that metric, with McKay coming back in. I’m sure his output will take a hit

While I agree, if he’s not double teamed that means there’s also another player being targeted in the forward line. If that player gets 2-3, then that takes Curnow back down to 4-5. There’s a parity between sharing the forward line and being double teamed.

I like that you wrapped up with the excitement aspect. Because I think the inconsistency, is really just the levelling of the middle teams. Apart from West Coast, North and even Essendon now it’s good to look at a game and be able to give both teams a chance. It feels like a long time since we’ve had a competition this open

All fans want consistency, but which AFL sides bring it?

Valid points, I didn’t have the word length to go into double teaming and whatnot. I don’t believe I said that McKay will be the main goalkicker when he comes back, just that by the numbers Curnow has less shots when they play together. Mind you, I think it would be great for the league if Curnow was to win.

Call it over-umpiring all you like, all this talk about ‘scoring like the old days.’ The free kick count in that game was the highest since the 1990s when the scoring is as high as we want it to be.
The correlation between free kicks and high scores is unfortunate but undeniable, more free kicks inevitably lead to more shots on goal.

The rise of the flood defence: An AFL malaise

Yeah he’s one of those players you want to put pen to paper ASAP. But I think the fact he’s finally the #1 ruck in the system, he started on fire this year, and the chance for more flags will keep him there. Watch out for the dogs when Bruce comes back

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

As nice as it would be to get some homegrown talent. Taking a note out of freo’s book and getting in players who become available on the outer at other clubs, like Brodie and Acres. Also get a call in for a good recruiter to help nail these drafts.

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

I agree mate, if they want to change the game plan, they need to stick to it. Changing at half time helps no one. Also a big supporter of leaving the underprepared players in the WAFL while younger players are performing well.

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

I think they could get a good deal out of the Bulldogs for McGovern, although late picks. The Dogs would love a defender like that right now

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

Incredibly optimistic, i can’t see a reason he leaves that system to go through a rebuild

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

My thoughts exactly mate, the numbers showed me they’ve been sitting on the edge of a drop off from 2019, the players are now just to old to carry the load

How West Coast can shorten their rebuild

Yeah mate, I think Bailey Smith was phenomenal last night. Really looked like taking that next step

Some good takes there, Jamarra should be getting some games into him. I think Weightman’s positive is the fact he can fly and take marks. Definitely going to be interesting to see how they make it work this year.

Double delight for the Demons as they start 2022 with a win

Completely agree mate, they just looked tired but they ran to the end. Seemed to be let done by skill execution.
