Thought it was a good hit out. Looked very rusty early then improved 2nd half. No where near our "identity" first half but that improved
The boys would have taken alot from that game and bring on Melbourne next week on six day turn around.

I may have misheard but I thought Ed Curnow gave a shoutout to Jack Silvagni "in hospital" for his ACL surgery.
That seems a long delay if it's only just happening now.
I may be wrong and it may have just been for his recovery at home.

On the Kayo thing ...it was rather strange.
I could bring the commentary and vision back into sync by rebooting, but it gradually moved out of sync again as the game progressed to be almost 30 seconds ahead of the play by the end of the quarter.
Something to do with quantum physics I suspect. :D

For Kayo try that trick of running it in SD Quality, especially if you are watching via a web browser, it fixes a lot of stuttering and sync issues.
Kayo software is terrible, slow and buggy even with updated Android operating system on the TV.....the cricket from India runs ok, as does the NBA from the USA but local stuff like the NBL, AFL are frustrating and the Sheffield Shield games are dreadful.
Should not have to run at SD if you have a new TV and decent internet speed imo.....like how it also comes up with you have exceeded your number of users too for no reason and only one user is watching.

Any reason given why Williams, Kennedy and Pitto were absent, I would have thought given how much footy those three have missed any hitout no matter how short would be beneficial?

Form of Young wasnt encouraging and Kemp looked unsure of himself a few times...a backline minus Weitering doesnt enthuse comfort for supporters. Harry did ok in general play but I think the reality is he will always be an iffy kick and miss some bunnies and we just have to accept it like Collingwood had to with Travis Cloke and just hope he is on when playing the big finals.
I wouldnt be too concerned about losing in such hot conditions and was more glad we didnt seem to sustain any injuries....
re: Commentary....didnt mind hearing a biased Carlton viewpoint with Ed in the box and he probably still wishes he was playing...

Gee I hope we are going half speed, because we have looked unorganised and lazy!

Looked like our focus was to bring others into the game whereas the Pussycats played simple, maximize opportunities, footy.

(noticed late in the game when Saad was running through half back, and being pursued, that Young could have offered a shepherd but did SFA - lazy stuff).

Noticed the same thing. When he kicks through the ball he looks good, when he tries to 'massage' the shot, all bets are off. It's as if he just thinks too much with the closer in shots ...perhaps just be more instinctual when shooting for goal - with maximum force, regardless of distance.

Maybe he needs to try to kick it into Jolimont Station when he is 15m out.
