    I may be quite wrong, and Longmire was equally ecstatic as the players came back to the rooms.
    I read the same into the situation and was going to comment, also. There seemed to be vested interest in their reaction.

    We also had a breeze at our backs in the last quarter, maybe footy is that simple sometimes?
    C'mon Chels!

    Does a breeze at your back help win 10 clearances in a row?

    Wouldn't it be amazing if someone somewhere published a tactical analysis of every game of AFL: as in the moves and counter-moves made by coaches and players throughout each game, those that worked, those that failed etc. Longmire always stonewalls in post-game interviews and gives the same bland comments about effort and intensity. I'd love to know what really happened.

    Or is this already happening and I don't know about it?

    True. Kennedy was a beast. A breeze definitely helps getting out the back of a zone, though.
