  2. My thoughts on how to beat Collingwood

    After watching Collingwood a great deal over the year, these are my thoughts on how you beat them.

    1. They don't like tackling pressure on the ball carrier. Rather than let guys like Thomas, Pendlebury and Beams run around on their own, hit them hard every time they go near the ball.

    I didn’t want to hear we were the most efficient team with our kicking or that our stoppages had dropped dramatically.

    What I wanted to hear from BT , Uncle Tony, Cranky Parko and the delightful Rohan Smith was that
    a) even though we’d traded a lot we hadn’t ...

  5. All Davo Swans: an overview

    Sometimes it's important to stop what you're doing, take a moment to collect your thoughts and think "what would Davo do?". In this series, we'll apply that logic to team selection for the Swans; we'll look at the All Davo* Swans- a team made up of those players on the current Swans list that perform best in the IseeitbutIdontbelieveit rating: a rating obtained through the application of a scientific formula based on the criteria below.
