Horror and Hope: New Demons and an Easy Slaying

It would probably be generous to state that we’ve been treated to a mixed bag in the last fortnight, particularly when keeping in mind how disastrous our performance was against Melbourne. Our first half against Essendon provided some reasonably good medicine for the fans, although in light of a sloppy second half that medicine remains a temporary tonic until further tests of its efficacy can be carried out.

An opening round drubbing at the hands of the Swans …

VFL Player Review: Collingwood vs Port Melbourne (Round 1, 2016)

My first player reviews of the year, which I apologise for being tardy in getting out, but I’ve been flat-chat since the game finished on Sunday afternoon. I also apologise for the shortness of some comments and not writing something a bit longer, a bit more in-depth, but I’m more coldly mechanical in my writing …
