  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. It frustrates them and throws them off their game. We are the best tackling team in the comp (72 per game), and if we make 80-90 tackles we are well on our way to winning.

    2. They are ...
  3. Freedom of speech? Where?

    Allow me, please, to step onto a soapbox and tell you all something about this thing you all call "Freedom of Speech". And you will allow me, such is the power of"Freedom of Speech". Right?

    Then let me start by quoting text from the Parliamentary Library, Research Note no. 42 2001-02

    Yes we didn't lose, but maybe we really should have won, and not given up the lead. 2 points is better than 0 points, but not as good as 4.
    What if we miss the top 4, or even a top 2 spot by 2 points?
    What if we miss the 8 by 2 points? Well it could be a positive and the 2 points get us over the other team.

    Personally, I felt relieved that we hadn't lost, the Demons came ...

  5. All Davo Swans: the backs

    As we approach the end of the season it's time to start to reflect on who makes the All Davo Swans for 2010. We'll start with the backline.

    In any footy team the backs play an important role, their duties include;
    • Getting the footys back from the crowd and kicking them to the forwards- if they didn't do that the forwards wouldn't get as many opportunities to scan the crowd for ladies, this has ongoing implications for the rest of the game; how is a forward to know where to
