We played a zone. Other clubs are still playing direct match ups. That may give the impression of "dropping players back"
Perhaps we should have focussed more on skill improvement over the off season instead of tactical improvements. Although Collingwood were poor on Friday night. They still moved busted us open and out-played us when they got the ball out wide. Their chains of play were quite impressive at times where we relied more on grunt and direct play.


Playing zones is ridiculous and way OTT for this competition. A massive *whoosh* at the coach.

And if a team does not comply with the 5/6/5 formation at centre bounces, they forfeit the game?


JOKE.

Competition should be renamed AuskickW.


But I will watch.

The AFL has a duty to ensure the game is entertaining to watch. This step by Hocking is long overdue. So many aspects of the AFL are a turn-off so I welcome his intervention and hope it shakes up the selfish coaches in the mens game.

By 'selfish', do you mean the coaches who do whatever they think will give their team the best chance of winning?


If the AFL believe certain things will make the game more entertaining to watch, maybe the rules and playing conditions need to be further revised. But asking/insisting that teams play with a different style is ridiculous.

Imagine throwing a team out of a competition, who, despite winning regularly, were simply boring. :grin:

As Carlton captain Davey said, '...we don't really care about what it looks like, as long as we're getting that win.'

I'd think the umps could pay more free kicks to keep the play open. In the games I saw on TV last weekend there were numerous times that an infringement in the pack could have been paid but was let go ( e.g in the back or improper disposal etc). Unfortunately the players were not able to clear the ball from the pack and eventually resulted in a ball-up. Regularly another pack formed from the ball-up.

The intensity at the player and the ball is very good and should be commended but perhaps is too good at the moment.

But I remember hearing Keeping say that he was very happy indeed with her game (despite no disposals).

(Or did he say that at halftime?)

You'd have to wonder about the list of instructions/directives/bullshit that the umpires are delivered from higher authority prior to each round/game. :roll:

If I took a shot for every sexual
Pun in the commentary, I’d be smashed.

Lucky the AFL, implemented the rain rule.

We dominated, should have won by 4-5 goals at the end. Sarah Hosking is a great player.

Was there with my two youngest daughters.

Have to say if the AFL want to have a crack at the way our girls play the need to have good hard @#$%&! look at the umpires and the tactics GWS employed against Darcy V for starters. You want us to score more then look at the crap behind the play.

Full credit to GWS girls post game. My youngest loves her signed cap and the attention she received.

Much fuller credit goes to the Carlton girls though. Took time for photos with my youngest and the Darcy took time with my 15 yo daughter who idolises her to have her photo with both kids. Best thing was Katie Loynes took it and gave the phone back obviously. I thought she had trouble with the phone until I look at the pics - 2 great photos with my girls and Darcy and the final was a big thumbs us selfie of herself.

PS The passion they play with seeing Darcy in tears post game because of Bri Davey's injury leaves me sure we are heading the right direction.
