His presence took focus away from the overall ineffectiveness of the tactic. Perhaps the coach believes Paddy will fill that void and take contested marks inside 50? It is Paddy's main strength. I can't think of any other reason you'd persist with it. We have three decent contested marks up forward, but wouldn't life be easier on them as well if we entered quickly with precise movement to hit the man on the lead? The long bomb option should only be an occasional tactic, not what you build a scoring system on.


Since when did rooey take contested marks on a regular basis!? At his best he was a lead and mark , with the occasional contested mark thrown in. No Stewart Loewe, Tony Lockett he was. It was a completely dumb and pathetic tactic with rewoildt the last 6-7 years, and the fact they still do it, concerning. Loewe and Lockett yes, get it in quick and fast and they will mark. Ever since, retarded . Lockett left 24 years ago
Bring back the Lockett era
