Re: AFL Rd 9 2022 Pre Game Prognostications Carlton vs GWS
Reply #146 –
I share the same premise as you that GWS are a softish team with only a few relishing a tough contest and I'd be making it real tough for players like Whitfield, Kelly, Cogs and quelling any idea of a Leon Cameron inspired victory very early in the game.
Still think we can win and win well, interesting seeing ex Giant Dylan Shiel perform tonight for Essendon, we dodged a bullet there and his coach when asked about Shiels lack of effort/poor attack on the ball was scathing by his silence. Much happier we saved our dollars for Cerra and Hewett....
I wasn't too upset when Shiel chose Essendon over us.
I listened to Phil Davis on the wireless today. He had a lot of good things to say about Leon Cameron but the impression I got was that Cameron pampered his players rather than challenging them to be their best. They are unbeatable when things are going their way, bullies when the opposition is weak, and invisible when the pressure is on.
We're certainly up against it with McKay and Young out, but GWS only has two wins this season and they have been pumped by ordinary teams.
