Port may even run this game at a profit … one day … and maybe they won’t need State and Federal Government + AFL Handouts to do it!
Yeh … Nah!

AFL Round 11: Likes and dislikes

Yeh Right.
All of those things were conceived and implemented by Taylor Walker.
Pack it in Peter!

Taylor Walker’s memorable, unfulfilling career is meekly fading away

I would suggest tat the noise that keeps coming out of Adelaide is a function of:
1) the fish bowl that is a 2 club town (1 club being significantly larger than he other)
2) a certain group of Media persons that hold a grudge against AFC and constantly write negative articles. Negative is OK, but only if justified, They hate the fact that 1 team dominates the landscape and would run articles blaming Adelaide for WW2 if they could link them in any way!

Which AFL coach should be the next to go?

Sacking Bolton mid season may achieve precisely nothing, which is exactly the same as what Carlton are getting by not sacking him now.

Should Scott be coaching anyone at all next year?
I think not!
Hodge is an obvious choice and could be considered to be an Assistant Playing Coach. He has an excellent pedigree and seems to be tailor made by Clarkson. Mitchell may also be in the same boat.
One smoky to keep your eye on may be ex-Crow Nathan Bassett at Port. He is very well regarded and had some success with Norwood before switching to the AFL.

Which AFL coach should be the next to go?

Both of the Adelaide coaches (especially Hinkley) will be on the block if they miss the 8 again this year.

Which AFL coach should be the next to go?

Coaches do not willingly step to the side in poorly performing teams like Carlton. They are offered the opportunity to resign with some dignity or be sacked. Both options generally involve a cheque!

Glass of bathwater anyone?

Surely Ratten would be freed up if he was offered a job as Senior Coach?

Five talking points from AFL Round 10

There was of course that 9-2 free kick count in the 3rd quarter to set the West Coast ball rolling. It didn’t win them the match (?) but it certainly lifted their performances.
On the Gibbs front – he is being made the scapegoat BUT his 22 possessions the week before were less than average (half were handed over directly to the opposition). He also has next to no defensive effort (and that is the key driver as to why he and Josh Jenkins are in the Magoos).

With his injury history Mitch McG will have to play until he is 47 if he is to play 200 games!

Sacking Brendon Bolton is not Carlton's solution

When it truly mattered, McCullum killed NZ’s World Cup hopes.

The Roar’s Cricket World Cup countdown: McCullum goes down swinging

The young English would be close to correct. Further back than 15 or so years ago the English were even more rubbish than they are now and haven’t played “cricket” for some years!

Warner and Smith set to cop some chirp from English World Cup crowds

Not if you are a Saffer … or Atherton … or Rahul Dravid … or the 2005 English team … or …

Warner and Smith set to cop some chirp from English World Cup crowds

Yeh … because taking a pocket full of dirt onto the ground is not a premeditated attempt to alter the condition of the ball?

Warner and Smith set to cop some chirp from English World Cup crowds

Yep it was dirt (which is a bit like sand that they make sandpaper out of). Both amount to ball tampering!

The Crouch Brothers are also slow of foot (but quite quick with their hands and their minds). Need Milera back, and more time in the middle for the likes of Gallucci.
Apparently a couple of the new recruits McHenry, Caldwell and Stengle all have pace so there may be some light at the end of the tunnel on the pace front.

Can Brisbane break their finals drought?

Cam Ellis-Yoleman has done OK since coming into the side but he lacks pace (and that is already a well entrenched affliction that besets Adelaide’s midfield).

Can Brisbane break their finals drought?

Adelaide were of course also severely undermanned the day that they beat Port but I agree, Adelaide has not beaten any side that will feature come September (and lost to a couple that won’t)!

I hear that Bolton has the “full support of the Board”!

Huge AFL loss renews pressure on Bolton

Very funny. Grundy is free at the end of 2020! Adelaide would wait if the price is too high.

It looks like ScoMod inspired some loyalty/belief on the weekend BUT I doubt that he can coach either!

And Carlton are only 5 years into a rebuild as well!

Pretty sure Adelaide won’t be using Pick 1 (if that is where it lands) in any trade deal.
Adelaide has never had a pick below Number 7 in the National Draft (and only a handful in the Top 10 ever) and Pick 1 is way too much for Brodie Grundy (whom they can get for free at the end of 2010 if they are that way inclined).
