AFL Finals Week 1

 

So here we are people the “ Real Season “ is upon us .. and the pressure cooker has just been cranked up .
 
Looks as though at this point it’s going to be wet for the Weagles / Hawks game so the skills are going to be down .. in which case it going to be rough and tough hard ball gets . I fully expect the Hawks to step up their antisocial aspects of their game from the first bounce so the Weagles will need to be switched on from the get go and not take a step backwards ..
 
Dockers / Sydney game .. we’ve been waiting 6 months for this and it’s time to pull the aces out , so it’s all guns blazing from the onset .. we have a full strength backline and ours mids should dominate giving our forwards as many opportunities as poss ..
 

 

Both above games should be beauties , hoping both WA teams get the win and move straight to the PF preferably even right to the GF were we comprehensively smash the crap out of ya’s ..    
 
For your reference here's the Finals Predictor in every scenario I put in . The Dockers seem to win

Thanking the Hawks?

Sat, 2015-09-12 11:16

I woulda thought a one eyed eagles fan would be thanking their own team on the win. Could it be that you admit hawks played shit which enabled the WC win, hence the thankyou?

 Going to be off the radar today as I’ll be up at the game with my poncho and hard hat on  ( apparently hail is on the cards ) 

 
Time for the Dockers to flick the switch and turn it on , with a well rested full squad .. there’re no excuses it’s time to bring it on boys

The rumours are flying thick & fast. I see the AFL boss on the tele asking everyone to stop spreading them & give him some privacy.
Funny how the AFL have got all soft & fluffy lately when it comes to some clubs & their players......
I think maybe they should stay out of it & leave it to the clubs & their management to make statements on behalf of the players if required.
Just saying....

 Rumours there’s a few them , must’ve been good motivation because Tippet played a blinder on the weekend . I don’t think the club would / should use the Depression Tag if that was the case .. I’m leaning towards the JJ Cale song and awaiting the B sample .

FACT...The team that gets to

Thu, 2015-09-17 12:07

FACT...The team that gets to the ball first, generally gets more free kicks than the opposition.
I guess that means that a team that complains about the low number of free kicks it gets, needs to increase it's workload & get to the ball first...
And it is a fact that Subiaco is a dawnting place for visiting teams , as 80% of the crowd is for the home team.
Therefore when a player or umpire gets Booed it seems to be louder than other grounds.
The MCG normally gets a 50 - 50 split and is not as noticeable.
Will this complaining by the Hawks fans mean that the umpires will be "under instruction to even out the count" when teams play here.?????

 Just out of interest do you

 Just out of interest do you have stats that show that the team 1st to the ball gets the lions share of free kicks? I have seen plenty of instances where those who have generally been slower to the ball win the count. How do you explain tight contests that may have a higher free kick differential for one side? Its difficult to quantify as there are no stats for missed free kicks or incorrect calls but i think that the free kick count alone can be extremely misleading.

There were some bad calls on Friday but it didnt affect the result. Unless its a free kick that should be paid in the dying seconds or not have been paid that changes the score, i think it doesnt really affect outcomes all that much

Example the free kick that was not paid to Richmond in their forward pocket, that could have changed the result .....

 Was it the Weagles game that had the deliberate out of bounds after it went 50m ? that was a shocker ..
