I'm not worried about Dudbourne at all. In fact, I reckon they are average and are guaranteed to fall in a hole at some point.
I just can't stand their fans. There's a real front runner and smart arse attitude to them. They pop up out of the ground infrequently, and when they do, the attitude is like they've been a mega success for decades. You'd think they'd have a smidgeon of humility given their last 56 years, and keep a bit of a lid on it, but nope.
Stupid. We should have been clapping Dusty off not the Shemans dudWhat's the go with the guard of honour for Nathan Jones? Yes I know I'm a bad sport, but I don't rate him as a footballer or a bloke. Also thought it was a pisser when he turned around to maybe thank the Tiges players for it, they had gone, Bakes the first.
He elbowed Nigel in the throat just prior to this. Kosi is a sniping little prick and hope he gets his comeuppance next time we play them.
Typical Melbourne.Melbourne players got very cocky and lippy the end of the game.
Let them play a few more games and see how they fair! Sydney started with a blaze of glory. Melbourne played their best game, personally speaking, it would be very hard for this team to keep playing at the level, before somethings give way.Quite interesting seeing the Dees injury list. It's very short by comparison. They had their best 22 available for that game.
We have plenty of improvement in us.
Notice how often Gawn stands under a high ball engaging a couple of tigers, pretends hes gone under the ball and watches it go over his head for a teammate to catch?
He ran a masterclass in getting away with blocking the other night
Yes! I try to refrain from posting when I’m emotional during a game, but this one tested me.
He just stands there, walks under the ball (with our player’s arms pinned under his armpits?) and then he’s like “oh... oh... no, I accidentally run under the— oh good job team mate!“.
It’s great play. We thought they’d go the big man, instead they go the little man. Melbourne chose unpredictability over height.
I really like Max Gawn. Hes a fantastic player and he seems like a very genuine bloke.
and sure, a big part of a ruckmans job is to block,
but I reckon if it was Nank and not Max, they would have pinged him in really important places and important times..
Was it a block? I thought you have to change direction, whereas Gawn just played dumb by walking under the ball?
