Another Hawthorne match, another loss, another Alastair Clarkson Sook.
If he’s not an opposition player, referees or cries badly about the national draft, he’s There is a crack in an old mate.
St. Guilda coach Brett Rotten, who has worked under Clarkson for seven seasons, had a job yesterday – Beat the Hawks to maintain speed In a final campaign. No matter how that success came about, Clarkson knows better than anyone.
“They were playing an interesting game, it’s a game,” Clarkson said, his fifth consecutive defeat since losing to the Hawthorne Saints, and the 10th defeat from the last 11 games.
“Especially in the second quarter, I think they got 42 points and kicked a goal. They could have escaped it against us, but I don’t think this time is going to give them credit for kicking a lot of goals.”
If Clarkson could bring himself to grace himself in this unusually competitive Hawthorne season, he would have admitted that Rotten had trained him with his tactics after the first quarter of the free-flowing, and that Rotten “Cell” had only two clubs with higher scores than the Saints in 2020.
Speaking about Clarkson’s rating, Rotten said the Saints are set to impress for the 9-6 season.
“We focus on what we can do, and they can, too.”
LADDER PREDICTOR Can your team do eight?
This is an interesting game that Clarkson will be playing this year. He clearly feels he is being made hard. I do not know why. We all put out violins, Clarco. Tell us when you want to play them this week.
Dangerous fuel cats will take some pulses
If it was a normal season, Friday night at MCG with 75,000 spectators previewing the grand finale.
Geelong vs. Richmond in the second final round.
The perennial finale with the strong rise of the powerful form of the 2020 season – six wins in a row, eight wins from the last nine, 11 wins from the last 13 – against the winner of two of the last three premierships, somehow touching the field as a whole exposing the once-acclaimed and widely celebrated culture only in words Stuck in events.
Geelong embarrassed Ascent in the 16th round on Sunday. Richmond had a bag, but the club was just as frantic as it was at any point in 2020 The incomprehensible actions of the Sydney Stack and the period Coleman-Jones, Which followed other questionable results of individuals affiliated with the club.
The pace of the cats has not stopped in the last two months. Joel Celwood Will turn against Richmond, Gary Applet will return in the final a week later.
Patrick Dangerfield has held the top 10 on the Brownlow Medal in each of the last eight seasons, averaging 25 votes on that count. He has won or finished second in three of the last four seasons.
Do not assume that in 2020 he will not be able to win it again. When I last checked, the judges voted for the award, not to mention the experts in the media. Even if he doesn’t, he has already tied a season with any of his previous teams on an equal footing.
He may indeed be at the pinnacle of his extraordinary powers. Can’t wait to see what he does against Dusty and Cow on Friday night.
From happiness in 48 hours to possible disaster
The Brisbane Lions received the best possible news when it was confirmed that the 2020 AFL Grand Final on Wednesday will take place in Kabul.
On Friday night, the club suffered some bad news – a femoral injury The season is coming to an end Arguable for its most important player.
Harris Andrews could be the best big defender of the tournament. Last year the All-Australians are looking to support that honor in 2020. Ideally, he cannot change.
Jack Payne will try to do so. He is 20 years old and has played in a tournament.
Brisbane have the remaining matches against Gold Coast, Sydney and Carlton. Beyond that, Andrews hopes to miss a final. Winning that first final could be a double chance qualifying match and it would be very difficult without him.
The story of two failed campaigns
Toss the most mournful coin of any team in the 2020 season. Leaders Ascenton, North Melbourne Wall.
Bomber, Insulted by Geelang in Kaba On Sunday, it has won only one of the last eight matches – against a team sitting in third place (Hawthorne).
Of their six wins, five have come against the bottom five, and their draw in the 11th round came against the sixth-placed team from Gold Coast.
The John Worspold-Ben Rutten training enrollment simply did not work. Worcesterbolt must have been released six games before Rutton allowed his style to impress the team.
Ascendan is now like northern Melbourne – their totally damaged 2020 seasons have already made 2021 very difficult to “sell” to their supporters.
No team really knows where it is. The North, where the two, in particular, were even talking about the final action, was recently talking about a big game in mid-June. Both won the first two games of the season.
Circuits 16-18 Look at the whole component
North won a game – against the only team down the ladder in Adelaide. The club has had some limited moments during the VFL / AFL tour that began in 1925. The period of 2020 will undoubtedly focus its worst years on any conversation.
Unlike the only team at the bottom of the ladder, North Melbourne – because it is an illusion of its position once it enters 2020 – has not even begun the monumental task of rebuilding. People who believed that 2020 was going to be rosy are now going to make massive changes.
Like Wrighton Shaw, the question revolves around Rice Shaw. There are no easy or obvious answers.
