Thank god Carracella phoned Dimma at halftime with a strategy...
Dimma made the old bloke look cluleless tonight.
Yep, Leppa must be having a holiday on the Gold Coast as well and popped by to give Dimma some tips for old times sake ..

Look what happens when you’ve got Nank + relief ruck (Chol) Who then can play as 3rd tall in forward line
So we have 3 talls in forward line Jack Tom & Chol/Nank providing marking targets
Jack kicks 6 Chol 4 Lynch 2 that’s how you win under Shockings new AFL rules
Dimma going in with 1 ruck for most of the season It’s taken Dimma so long to work it all out Hope it’s not too late

Dimma was all of us during the game with some of the umpiring decisions. His nuffie side was well and truly engaged. Hopefully he bites his tongue and doesn't lighten his pockets in the post match presser.

Showed a bit of emotion in box due to some crap frees.
Will he tee off at the umpires?

That’s a bit rough on the old coach - Nank has been injured, no Soldo and CJJ did his calf.

Reckon Dimma would have done this much earlier if he had the cattle.

You could mount a tiny argument that maybe he held CCJ back a few games to many, but thems the breaks, and he did give a debut to Samson remember.

So he said earlier in the year he wanted three talls.
But Lynch was injured, then Nankervis, now CCJ. He tried Sampson.
Do you really think he just woke up, or perhaps you did?

Mr Damien Hardwick gets a ruck division back. And one mid.

And he lays down the law.

Dimma ran Nank into the ground thought he’d go with 1 ruck again earlier in season and use Pickett as relief ruck
Didnt change game plan to suit Shocking change of rules

Liked how Nank was used tonight.

Look out next week when it’s Nank and Chol ripping Stanley apart.

I agree at the start of the year that was the case, but did change tactics around five. Injuries have just played their part.
I believe he even said he was torn by losing mobility vs the extra tall before the change, indicating he wanted to change but didn't think we had the right people in form to do it.

Why the *smile* would you instantly change a game system n structure that'd won you three flags in four years before anyone even understood what the new rule ramifications would be?
Also how do you suddenly rejig your systems mid year to adjust to the changed rulings when you've constantly got half a dozen players missing games through injury and are forced to push games into a bunch of kids?

You either keep up with the changes or drop out of the 8 We didn’t start season well before injuries hit anyway
