    1. I think as an essendon supporter, have to back in draper. Bellchambers back this week, but hopefully they just leave him up forward to ‘maybe’ clunk a mark and let Draper take on Soldo.

      1. That is why I always have doubt on picking Dogs midfielders. Never know what Bevo will do with them

    1. I avoided this game for my v/c option because i thought it would be a bunch of low hundreds from the big guns. Macrae is something else.

  2. Bailey Smith getting poor TOG and also being scored harshly this week compared to other weeks … only running at 53% DE

  3. Am I seeing things? My POD of Langdon on 63 at half time! Can he actually keep this up and go back to back tonnes!
    He has only had 2 games above 90 for the season too. Am I finally being rewarded????

      1. I took a big gamble on him Rd 2, because it was going to be a crazy season. Never traded him as there were many others to go before him.
        All I hope now is that he can keep it up and not go missing for a full quarter like many other games

  4. Love Libba. He reminds me of playing footy in the bush when I was young.

    One of those perpetually hard players who always look knackered but will go and go until the last second, even if you’re copping a flogging.

    Also reminds me of the ressies backmen who sit a pie behind the goal post and take a bite when the footy is at the other end, but maybe that’s the mo..

  6. Ahhh that’s more of the Langdon I know only scoring 11 points.
    I can at least say it was more due to Dogs dominating that quarter and Dees a no show

    1. So much for back to back tonnes……
      Finishing the final quarter with 0 disposals and only 5 for the 2nd half. Scored 19 points in the 2nd half after a great start. POD choice didn’t pay off this season ๐Ÿ™

  8. What are we thinking is a banking score for VC this round, Iโ€™ve got McRae as VC Iโ€™m going to accept 125+ but hoping for more.

    Just not sold on most C options this week.

  9. There is a well known children’s book called Where’a Wally.

    Perhaps Melbourne could bring out their own version called Where’s Angus

    1. I considered Brayshaw but decided against after reading so many coaches warning to avoid, plus I had a backline disaster to patch up.
