    Being objective here (not omg shuey > heppell) but surely heppell needs to push up the ground more, kicks in the back pocket aren't hurting anyone, he needs to get a few more possessions outside your defensive 50 (model his game on birchall). I would also like to see him play that link man that gaff does so well for us.
    How does it feel to be Tottenham? How does it feel to be small? You sold Bale. We signed Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil.

    Hmm I somewhat agree with this. Mainly with the part that he is being wasted in a back pocket but I think we need to remember its only his second season and he will get ample opportunity to flourish in a more advanced role. What he lacks in pace he makes up for in reading the play. I think these attributes mean he is more suited to the back half where he can dictate proceedings. I envisage a role similar to that of Goddard and Hodge, the issue being that his kicking may not be powerful or damaging enough to fulfill this role in its entirety.

    Hopefully once Dempsey, Hibberd and Myers come back he can spend more time in the midfield. Until then, he is our best half back flanker with his good disposal and decision making.

    He's covering for Dempsey at the moment. Now that Hibberd has gone down, I'd imagine he'll be there a bit longer.

    We won...so it was worth smashing cheap piss tequila.


    1 point, what a game.
    Though...umpires were kinda blowing Bombers. That first goal that needed reviewing...that was A FUCKING goal! Everyone in the room agreed.
    Oh well.

    Bombers did good. Glad we took the win.
    3-2 is a decide stat for Buckley so far.

    Has actually been our best defender in 2012, time to admit you're wrong about him. For someone who claims he saw talent in Reid as a defender when people refused to admit he had potential, you're missing the fact that Keefe has come along an awful lot like Reid has. Like Reid, Keefe's poor games at AFL level have generally been as a KP forward. Rarely has put a foot wrong down back, and has awesome disposal for a guy his size.

    And Beams continues to produced his 25-30 touches + a goal a game even after coming back from injury , and unluckily for everyone, they can't try and use front running as an excuse anymore.

    Carlisle is hardly a huge scalp for a FB.

    Also, was pretty happy with how Brown played in his first game in over a year, looked very good on an in form crameri. Would consider replacing Dawes up forward with Tarrant when he's fit, and having Reid, Keefe and Brown as our defensive unit.

    Would agree with you on your setup, but don't think it's likely to be honest.

    Brown was exceptional. Used his body so well. Crameri just couldn't get a jump because of the body pressure.

    I don't think Bucks will drop Dawes but I can see Tarrant playing forward or even on a wing with Dawes in the side.

    It's actually a worry for the Pies that they only won by a point.

    Swan was awesome of course, but I loved Sidebottom's game too.

    Jolly has bounced back in the last 2 weeks too.

    Brown on Crameri was huge, especially with Hurley out.

    Such a good game to be at.

    We brought along about 5 guys that had never seen a full game, let alone been at an AFL game before ... and they were all to the game and the atmosphere inside the G.
