Training Friday 8 February


#247

Pure speculation, but perhaps some pf the more mongrelly players have been given specific instructions to lift the physicality at training and/or rough a few young blokes up to get them ready for what they’ll cop at AFL level. Or not


#248

Yeah i’m sure that’s the case. And i think it’s a good idea. But surely nobody would think a punch in the head is anywhere near acceptable.


#249

Works fine in under 8s.


#250

It’s exciting to hear the improvement of McGrath, how has he looked defensively through the middle, has he maintained his defensive instincts?


#251

Yes I think he will always have those defensive instincts, he’s just that sort of a competitive person.

I think he’s still doing that but getting it more himself, and is much more creative when he does get it.


#252

Nackers’ training report has done a number on the lid

#253

Hopefully, he can give Dev a run for his money on the tackling front.

Loving the mix of our mids, they each have standout weapons.


#254

Random question (which I’m putting here because there’s traffic). Can any remember which game the Dean rioli ‘dangerous’ tackle on luke ball was in. I’m trying to find a video of it.


#255

Assuming it was not a preseason match - I’ve narrowed it down to 2 - given they only played 2 AFL games against each other.

Round 2 2004
Round 13 2005


#256

I’m slightly disturbed by how quickly you worked that out. Please don’t tell you have a spreadsheet for it.


#257

Haha no but a good website. I just went to AFL tables and worked backwards from the end of Dean’s career.


#258

It was THE McLaren game, wasn’t it?

Lloyd was reported for shrugging a tackle and got off on appeal. Played next week and kicked 8 in the Hird Hug game.

#260

Couldn’t find it in the 2005 highlights. Can’t find the 2004 highlights


#261

So the game is Round 2 2004 - the one @ivan can’t find the highlights for!


#262

Amongst all this positive news, great news!, about the only thing we are missing is a report from BB’s own star reporter, Tiffany.

I hope she has not retired, @jackie_mihocek …?


#263

I hope in a nice way, not the rumoured way.


#264

Yes, I also miss hearing what Tiff has been up to…


#265

I think Jack Watts ran into her recently


#266

Haven’t watched the video to see if it’s in there though
