Game Chat – Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs

Written by Thommo on August 16 2020

Where and When: Metricon, Sunday 16 August at 1:05pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Adelaide 9.9 (63) def Doggies 2.14 (26) at Adelaide Oval

What it means for Adelaide: Nothing but pride in a shocking season!

What is means for the Dogs: There is a real log-jam forming in the top 8 and every win makes a huge difference in the scheme of 2020. The Dogs don’t want to lose their bye round.

Supercoach Watch: If you don’t own Macrae, you probably don’t want to watch at all. If you do watch you’ll want him to get tagged! The Bont and Laird should also enjoy decent days out. Dunkley may also be joining a few teams of late.

Thommo Watch: I need Laird to go HUGE for me to have a chance in my cash league. Go little man!

Thommo’s Tip: Dogs by 25 points.

  1. Bailey Smith didn’t start too bad in getting the ball, but inefficient with it, only having 1 effective disposal.
    Hoping he gets more time on field in upcoming quarters as was under 70% TOG to start and I don’t want that to continue


  2. VC on Neale C on Bont, but decided to take vc score yesterday , only changed 1 minutes b4 game started as weightman was only live loophole and wary of a late in. Wont complain about Bont score though!!


  3. Smith up to 71 at half time with 18 disposals. He is going at 44% efficiency, if that was just a little cleaner it would be beautiful.
    So far repaying all that held onto him after his last couple of games


  4. Shouldn’t complain when I’ve got a POD in Bont going large, but could C Macrae please lift? 130?

    Get it done, son.


  5. Funny game supercoach
    Happy I kept c on Neale
    Still own Macrae so still want him to post a good score but not too good to regret my decision of not putting him captain .
    Stoked with Bont
    Not so happy I traded B Smith instead of D Smith
    and now relying on Aarts as Loop hole.
    Neutral – I am relying on McPherson to outs score Cottrell

  8. Plenty of time for Macrae to lift.
    Wasnt in the play that much especially second quarter but still scored 56.
    As long as Mr Magnets doesn’t decide to play him in a forward pocket still tipping him to get near Neale’s score


  9. Smith broken the tonne at 3 qtr time. Add Bont with 160 looking to make a double tonne.
    Macrae only on 85, but still looking to make his weekly tonne, just not his big projected score


  10. brought in laird , macrae C & greenwood this week
    was projected 2470 this morning
    looking more like 2300 now
    should have saved my trades
    wooda got starch’s 100 & wooda been able to take neale’s VC score
    or take grundy as C


    1. Supercoach is often a roll of the dice, can’t be too hard on yourself, just take it a week at a time


  11. This year SuperCoach is such a roller coaster. Went away a week and how much changes ? Couldn’t loophole Neale VC, but gladly taking 115 from Macrae. Bont you Champion. Sorry I sold you.


  12. Are the scores right, my game day is saying laird scores 39 and smith 75 and macrae 59, doesn’t seem like the right scores that I saw on fanfooty at 3qrt time. Can anyone help? Was well on to a decent score this round


    1. no cant be right – total scores for whole match on FF is only 1650 … the whole thing is shoddy.

      Will have to be updated … but its also flowed into the SC scores as well …
