Robert Heatley Stand / Re: AFL Rd 13 2024 In Game Angst Carlton vs Essendon
Jobe Watson should not be commenting on this game.

1. He is a crape commentator.
2. He cannot be impartial.

The free against Walsh was a 50-50. Head down running into an opponent only gets paid half the time (and so it should) and the other commentators thought as much. Watson couldn't even entertain the option it was anything but an obvious free to the bombers.

I'm not a big fan of SEN but their app that syncs with the TV is great if you don't want to put up with BT, Darcy and the other rubbish.

Just looking at Essendon's tall forwards suggests to me that Marchy might be a chance, but I can't see Boyd missing out.

We have been going with eight defenders but one of them is Cincotta in his midfield role and that won't change.

Binns for Fantasia would be close to like for like.  That would probably see Carroll as the sub again and reward him for his performance in the Magoos.  If Carroll is in the 22, I suspect that Motlop will get the sub role over Binns.

Problem is if Langford pulls out. We end up too heavy.

When discussing risks and costs to the team when running two rucks, it can't be ignored the there are risks and costs to the team when running one ruck, there is no free lunch.

Tactics have to be sustainable all season long and viable for finals!
Your solo ruckman goes down in the first 15 mins and you're in trouble! One of your twin towers is displaced and Cripps and Kennedy are left to pick up the ruck scraps. It's a calculated risk!!

"Essendon coach Brad Scott will seek clarification from the umpiring department after two crucial decisions went against the Bombers late in their 11-point defeat to Gold Coast on Sunday night."

Scott obviously starting to panic and wants to highlight 'umpire injustice' against his team so that they get 'a fair deal' on Sunday night!   That's an old trick Scotty!!
