PODCAST: LYCETT AND FORGET

PODCAST: LYCETT AND FORGET

SCOTT LYCETT. The name on everyone’s lips. Kev wrote him up today and there is no doubt your R2 selection will make you and break you in season 2018. Lekdog and Patch discuss Lycett and other West Coast selections alongside players from Richmond, St Kilda, Sydney and the Doggies. They also have a gander at […]

SCOTT LYCETT – Supercoach Spotlight 2018

Ahhhh, yes. The heady days of #Nankilands. With Witts at R3. Our very own @LekBlog started a Twitter revolution by unleashing the hashtag that forever changed the Twitter landscape in 2017. Will Scott Lycett do this for us again, or are we trying to fit a very large square peg into a round hole? Depending […]

GOLD COAST v GEELONG – Supercoach Match Report

  I’m sure the end result would be of some confidence to the two or three Gold Coast fans out there, but in the end the game was nothing more than a light training drill for both sides, with Geelong missing so many best 22 players that they looked to just be going through the […]

BRISBANE v SYDNEY: Supercoach Match Report

BRISBANE v SYDNEY: Supercoach Match Report

It looked like we might have a decent game on our hands at the end of the first quarter, but it wasn’t to be as Sydney used their superior size and skills to pull away from the 2nd quarter onwards to post an easy 55 point win. There weren’t many good signs for the Lions, […]

WESTERN BULLDOGS v HAWTHORN: Match Report

In my efforts to come up with some sort of quippy introduction for today’s match between the Dogs and Hawks at Mars Stadium in space Ballarat, I learnt that Mars no longer uses the slogan “work, rest, and play” but instead “put some play in your day”. This isn’t a recent thing either, this happened […]

PATRICK CRIPPS – Supercoach Spotlight 2018

PATRICK CRIPPS – Supercoach Spotlight 2018

As an out and proud Richmond supporter, I thought nothing could rival the man-love I feel for Dustin Martin… … I was wrong. The man-love coming (lol) from Carlton supporters for Patrick Cripps is on another level. “He’s a beast!”, they cry. “He’s never had a full preseason!” they yell. “I want to lock him […]

HEATH SHAW – Supercoach Spotlight 2018

By Dan Batten. Nah. No way. Shawly not. That’s what I’m sure most of you opening this article are thinking. Heath himself is probably sure of that. How can we forget one of the greatest SuperCoach falls from grace of all time? Previously a SuperCoach stalwart in defence, Shaw fell with an agonising thud after […]

GWS v COLLINGWOOD – Preseason Match Report

GWS v COLLINGWOOD – Preseason Match Report

Well, there was a game of football on tonight, but it was hard to tell from the first half. No lights, about 4 goals kicked and not much smooth play going on at all. It all opened up for the Giants in the 2nd half as their quality defensive pressure made it a nightmare for […]

CARLTON v ST KILDA – Preseason Match Report

CARLTON v ST KILDA – Preseason Match Report

Well the Blues are going to win the flag and Patrick Cripps will win the Brownlow. In other news, Liam Jones is still the greatest player in AFL/VFL history. Unfortunately the gentlemen’s agreement prevents us from selecting him as it would render all leagues invalid do to the unfair nature of his talent. At least […]

WEST COAST v PORT ADELAIDE – Preseason Match Report

By Dan Batten I gathered my Leeder beans from lunch and set out to watch a pretty interesting contest at Leederville Oval – i.e. I had nothing else better to do with my Sunday night so I chucked the footy on. Notable Absentees – WEST COAST: Nic Naitanui, Josh Kennedy, Willie Rioli, Notable Absentees – PORT ADELAIDE: Tom […]

ADELAIDE v FREMANTLE – Preseason Match Report

Plenty to look at in this game. Adelaide went in with eight new faces and Bryce Gibbs and Sam Gibson, while Fremantle took three potential debutants as well as Nathan Wilson and Brandon Matera. The 5 per cent who own Nathan Wilson would’ve been watching him with great interest, and then rookies in Tom Doedee, […]

ESSENDON v RICHMOND – Preseason Match Report

ESSENDON v RICHMOND – Preseason Match Report

Thank god that’s over. Meaningless blow-outs are hard enough to watch during the regular season, let alone during the pre-season. Essendon were insipid. Listless. Dilapidated. Barely palpable. Genuinely useless. They provided absolutely no pressure and let Richmond prance around Wangaratta and do as they pleased. And I had to sit there and watch it. Every. […]
