Queens birthday long weekend.

Zactly. Which is why we would go the route of little experiments/ideas,… some completely out of the box on a ‘Just suck it and see’ basis, rather than worry about the scoreboard. This is the ideal, and in fact only opportunity to do such things without consequence.


#4425

You’re kidding, right?

AFLX


#4427

Is that a srs question?
You ever known me to kid about such things.

Its happened nearly every year I’ve been involved with coaching during pre season games.

Not so much with the 3rds,… but one year I was playing we’d been that dominant the year before the coach did it , even there.

Guys that had never been out of the backline ever given a crack at FF etc.

And he found one… that then went on to play CHF in the seniors the rest of his days.

Edit; and it should be said was instrumental in Invy u 17’s going back to back that year. :+1:


#4428

There was no experimentation with players in different positions.
In fact I think most would say we were conservative in that way.

Are you talking about memberships slogans here, or…what?


#4429

Wasn’t Hepp half back and Myers CHF for a lot of the time? I think they moved around a bit.


#4430

I guess it’s possible.
I didn’t notice Myers much.
Stats say he kicked a goal. Although so did Heppell.


#4431

Yeah but that’s because, like a fair few Blitzers, you’ve got “Myers blindness”.

Actually played deep forward in the 666 set up a few times. Kicked our second goal from a one on one marking contest.


#4432

shrugs
I don’t dislike him.
If he’s a problem then he’s waaaaaay down the list.


#4433

Whatever it takes, how about TNT up the rear.


#4434

Didn’t mean to imply dislike.
Just he’s an exemplar of a type of player not often noticed, even when solid ( except when committing howlers)
The polar opposite of Langford & @KillerMike (or Guelfi & Donnington) where the game watching experience revolves around their contribution

Considering building this effect into BlitzData, the Blitz alternative to ChampionData


#4435

Look forward to your noble self sacrifice demonstrating your commitment to to Essendon by performing this act outside the Hangar on the weekend.
Just like self immolating monks in Vietnam.
Don’t forget to contact the media


#4436

Are you suggesting it doesn’t?


#4437

You are the centre of your own Langford universe.
Subjectively your football is your football, and no one can take it away from you.
Who am I to argue?


#4438

Finally somebody that gets me!


#4439


#4440

For someone who was so influential, I’m surprised you didn’t notice him.

edit - it’s already been said.


#4441

I think it’s quite natural to notice things that others just wave away, don’t you?
