Opportunistic football, I like that.

Azza Bamboo posted:

It's a good sport to watch and I'm hopeful that my chosen team have something more to them than being my favourite animal. Is there anything I need to know about the Swans?

The Swans have been perennial finalists for a long time, seemingly defying the notion that an aging team needs to have a few bad years to rebuild through the draft, largely through astute (and sometimes scandalous) recruiting from other teams. 2018 may have been the closest they'll get to a down year, as they underwent some generational change through the midfield, and put minutes into potentially good young players, while still making the finals.

They have one of the best and most exciting players in the league in Buddy Franklin, an indigenous key forward who shares a lot of attributes with LeBron James - he's big, strong, uncommonly fast and athletic for his size, gifted with talent most dream about, and routinely performs plays, clutch or otherwise, that make the price of entry worthwhile.

Sydney pushes a culture of everyone buying in, and is more successful than most at doing it, however they also have a touch of the Patriots and Belichick about them, as they're usually the culprit when a team is caught by fans or media bending the rules well beyond the acceptable.

Yeah, doggies had some big players out, not sure what the crows excuse will be... they were both playing in the heat too.

We had more players missing than the Dogs, but mainly we lost because Eloise Jones butchered two of the easiest goals you'll ever get, on top of some poor decision making and too many turnovers.

That seems to be Chloe Scheer's role. She took a couple of nice marks and converted one of them, but unfortunately butchered the second. I do like her though, she's one of the very few players in the Crows side who seems to be a quality kick.

The second wasn't really a butcher, it was a tough shot from deep in the pocket that just drifted across the face. Eloise Jones shanked a poster from straight out in front, then kicked a point under no pressure in the pocket when she had a team mate unmarked in the goal square with no Bulldog in the same postcode. I was right down the line of all three, standing in the pocket at the grandstand end.

Ailish Considine was a surprisingly good long kick, but she handpasses like someone from Ireland. Likes the rough stuff too, good pick up.

Azza Bamboo posted:

Eloise Jones had the mark, she could have taken a few steps back and gone for a much easier shot at the goal but instead played on.

While I ended up on the right side of this tip, I do think the Crows looked like the stronger team here. It just happened that the Crows didn't seem to have a strong forward excepting Sheer, which plays well into the Dogs phenomenal back two lines this match.

Previously our two best forwards have been Erin Phillips, and Sarah Perkins. Phillips is so drat good you need her everywhere, so played a lot of midfield; Perkins missed because she's still coming back from injury. On top of that our next two best forwards have been Ruth Wallace, who is missing this season for personal reasons, and Jenna McCormick, who seemed to be playing midfield and defence. It was a makeshift forward line, really.

Adelaide are 2-1 with 141% and they're going to miss out on the finals by 2 places because of this trash fire conference system

If you stack the two conferences together the only reason it isn't just the order on the screen is because Carlton at the top of B have 0.2% better percentage than the Bulldogs at the bottom of A

I get the penalty for sling tackles since they can be dangerous, but drat, there's always such a fine line between a textbook tackle and one that just goes a bit too far :( The Crows will miss Scheer bigtime next week.

Somehow I don't even remember the Tayla Harris incident with Randall. What happened there?

Having made the exact same mistake, I can confirm for you that Tayla Harris remains a Carlton player, and hit Giants player Pepa Randall

I find it really hard to understand the CD ladder rankings. They're based on statistics, not potential or anything like that, right? So surely the teams that have performed the best (say, for instance, the reigning premiers) would have the best stats and be rated higher? Or, if not, it demonstrates that CD are weighing up their stats incorrectly?

It's not the team stats, it's the individual player stats, and then the teams players are added together to get one number. Since AFL squads are too big to pull a Golden State Warriors, it means the highest rated squads probably have more middle ranked players than everyone else.
