Anyone see Bartel on Footy Classified? He ran clips showing how Cameron and Hawkins connect a lot better than Harry and Charlie. To his credit, Harry runs well up the ground to offer a target for our defenders but when he wheels around to target Charlie he drops it on his head (or worse, kicks to the advantage of the opposition). One example was a kick that forced Charlie to sit under the ball, allowing Grimes to manhandle him until the ball spilled. On the other hand, Bartel showed examples where immediately after Cameron wheels around he locates Hawkins and drops the ball into the “swimming pool” on the opposite side of Hawkins’ opponent. He says he doesn’t need to be too precise as long as it allows Hawkins to move to it.

We really need Harry and Charlie to have big nights together. At the moment, they are really Plan A and Plan B - when 1 is quiet we hope the other fires.
Thought it showed how Cerra looks for the safe pass and racks up useless stats, going wide just slowed down our entry when we had a one on one close to goal. Probably unfair to compare us to Collingwood who are much quicker and can play that constant momentum type game and run teams off their legs but it did show how we often dont give Charlie and Harry the easy lead into space mark and expect them to bail out the kicker with the big contested mark which was difficult vs players like Grimes who like that contested scenario.

Confused. Vossy talked of Pitto needing more game time fitness, yet small Durds, without any game time, comes straight in (which I am wrapped with, but...). I can only assume that leaving out Pitto is based on our best ruck combo being TDK & JSOS and this excludes Pitto (based on opposition rucks?).

Pitto didn't have much of a pre-season at all, so he'd be further behind fitness wise.

Is The Voice the same as Anti-Trans, can somebody Please Explain?

Watch the feet for a better perspective on what is going on in that Lydia Thorpe moment.

These semi-stage events, where a protestor does something they know will force the police to react only to throw themselves around to make things look more dramatic, are just click bait.

PS: Was Thorpe actually asserting that protesting on the grounds of Parliament House is not permitted?

Just finished watching the footage, Spotted One. I have absolutely no doubt that the headlines in both major papers are at best, exaggerations -- re police intervention/violence -- and at worst pure sensational bullshizen. The Thorpe performance was a childlike tantrum that will only harm her image and message. For Thorpe to claim she was 'pulverized' by the police is pure histrionics, based on the footage available. Pity, because protesting against the guest 'speaker' was justified.
