McGuire and Folau: Sins and punishment

Agree sounds to me someone who dislikes hate speech, writing a i hate article.

McGuire and Folau: Sins and punishment

Read it again Don ( back half) no mention of defensive 50. Replay of the game is available on Fox Footy !

According to Don it’s Pyke’s fault not Lyons that Hogan and Matera spent time in the the back half !

Thanks Marnie, agree he was a fantastic coach. I hope he can prove me wrong but i think his time has passed IMO

The Freo trio flying under the radar

So basically what your saying is Freo, need a coach that can provide a forward structure because the one they have got has been talking about about it for years but cannot provide it, your right. Your description of the game (forward line) on Sunday is not new. Freo need new ideas from a new look coaching staff starting with Ross. How good is Hale ?

Being a mate of Danger, i thought he might of got cleared.

Marnie- your thoughts on Ross Lyon briefly ??

McCarthy was terrible, when he is good he his good, But when he is bad it is really bad. Which is consistency once again, makes way for Blakely, and we need to manage a couple and give North and Giro a run this week.

Darling is still only 27 and a lot more goals to come if he can become more consistent i he will earn the champion tag, but i would have dropped him for that inexcusable performance against Geelong. I know Simpson backed him in like Lyon does with senior players, but some times these guys need a wake up call.
Players can get way to comfortable at times.

Matti, all teams at some stage have a loose man in defense, but Ross more than most has between 10-16 in defense regularly.

I think like most Darling is a very, very good footballer, and is a premiership player with class all around him. He has kicked a hell of a lot of goals in a champion team. But he is the most inconsistent player in the club. He plays to many games like last week which was a pure lack of effort and discipline and Not all, but Most games against quality sides he struggles. Jetta is similar in this regard and to label them champions is not true IMO

Does it really matter who goes first….Really !

Ross coaches as he played , Dour and Defensive. Not to say that he was handy, but you don’t want many in your side like that.

Perfect summary 1DER You are 100% correct get the forward structure right is correct and as you say Ross has been talking about it for a couple of seasons now, but he is not getting it done. Leave some forwards in the bludy forward line, as this article suggests the backs are quality players.Your stats are correct and they tell the story.

English is going to be the number 1 ruck man in the comp. in 2021 he is a ripper, i think he will be a huge target for his home town state in the future. He will be another Dean Cox if not even be better IMO

Dougie, Lyon’s game plan going into Sunday was to restrict the Crows to 7 goals and Freo kick 8 but only managed 5 in perfect conditions, another all to familiar result for Ross.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 7

Ross went into Sunday’s game with the game plan to restrict the Crows to 7 goals and Freo to kick 8 and win the game, as per usual his plan failed, a far to common scenario. Refer to Yattuzzi’s comment for the solution.

Pearce,Hamling and Ryan are never beaten one on one all this year and most of last season, throw in Hughes and Nahuis who have been superb as well and there is no better back half in the league. So why send a whole talented forward line down there with them (stupidity) leave Hogan and Matera inside 50 let Taberner lead up the ground and they can alternate there roles, really it is not rocket science.

Marnie, extremely great article, one of if not the best i have read on Freo.

100% spot on so the Cat fans (not all) should be thank full for what there got and stop whinging and saying your being robbed.

Toad, you are the one that cannot read or interpret anything, just go back and read exactly what i said…..I did not say the VFL were going to go broke. What i said that at least 6 clubs were, and all you would have today is a miserable little VFL……….
It is fact ! read on the net.waffle as much as you like it is true. I know you will have difficulty accepting it so there is no point trying to debate it with you. Cheers ! PS. I believe in more recent times the richer clubs have had to pay a form of tax to prop up some other clubs in Victoria plus big donations from the AFL. Hardly fair i reckon.
