AFL 2019 – What we are looking forward to Saturday Rd 12.

Eddie is excited about the footy this Saturday and he tells us why you should be too!

It’s a New Car Coach v2

We’ve talked about this, the coaching merry-go-round thing.  Brad Scott started it and Carlton decided they had batter make a vacancy so they don’t miss out on the embarrassment of coaching riches which will no doubt be on offer – or not.
The AFP raided the ABC offices this week at the behest of Steve Silvagni who was upset that a picture of him chatting to Ross Lyon got out, although not nearly as upset as every Carlton supporter and any Carlton player with an attacking bone in their body.  Charlie Curnow will be searching Google Maps for “Half Back Flank”.
Anyway, David Teague will take the reins this week against Brisbane who would have pencilled this one in before Mark LoGiudice scuttled their plans.

It’s a New Car Coach v1

Stuart Dew was the new kid on the block until last week, now he’s a comparative veteran in the coaching stakes.  To make matters worse he comes up against a North Melbourne side with a 100% win rate under Rhys Shaw. North were great last week against the Tigers.  Was it just a down day for Richmond? Or is this what we should come to expect from the Rhys Shaw led Kangaroos.  
North Melbourne should beat the Suns but I won’t put my house on it, I wouldn’t put my house on anything – maybe my ex’s house, I invested heavily in that.

Good Kids

The Gold Coast v North Melbourne game has some quality kids running around so keep an eye out – three in particular:  Cam Zurhaar is a tackling machine and he makes sure they stay down.  Has a big tank and hates a goal.  
Rhys Shaw will also keenly watch the development of Nick Larkey, a big lad for the Roos, wearing number 20 and reminding us of a young Drew Petrie. We can only hope. 
Ben King plays just his fourth game for the Suns and hasn’t set the world on fire.  Nonetheless last year’s number 6 draft pick is very highly regarded

Let’s talk about Crows

What’s going on?  Adelaide threw the farm at Bryce Gibbs and landed him. He had a big first season despite Adelaide’s under performance last year. This week he has been dropped for the third time this season.  Clearly in their best 22.  There’s a story here that we’re not getting.  I’m looking forward to hearing the story.

Matt DeBoer

Matt DeBoer has some big scalps this year – so much so gun midfielders will be studying him.  He’s taken so many guns out of circulation that they’re calling him John Howard. I’m looking forward to seeing who his next victim will be.  Likely Matt Crouch or Rory Sloan.  Bargain basement buy, solid citizen and Dockers’ judgement error.
