Episode 5 - Are the Adelaide Crows the Real Deal?

AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/aKS4sVVwIPo Rory Laird and Jordan Dawson combined for a total of 69 disposals. 69! At one point I saw Dawson's boot actually apologize to the ball. Hi, welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. It's a beautiful 69 degrees here in Los Angeles, and I'm standing in front of the entrance to Griffith Park. So this week, the Gather Round. How awesome was that? It was so great to see all these teams descend upon Adelaide. Unfortunately, the Victorians had to get on a plane and fly somewhere else, which much to their dismay. But I thought it was great. Although I hear now it's gonna be in Adelaide for the next three years, which is completely puzzling to me. Why wouldn't they move it to Western Australia and then have it in New South Wales and, and move it around? At any rate, here are my hot takes for Round 5. Carlton’s midfield blues Carlton's midfield continues to underwhelm. 10 minutes in, and the Blues looked more like lost tourists. It was only by moving Cerra from the defense to the midfield at quarter time that helped to stop the Adelaide onslaught. And Cripps, Kennedy, and Hewett are like a boy band that only know one dance move: contested ball. And what's up with the game plan? Bomb it to Charlie and Harry and just hope to god one of them comes down with it? Given Carlton's age profile and the money they've spent, they should be competing for the flag. But I'm sorry, I'm not convinced. Are the Adelaide Crows the real deal? The Crows faced off against the Blues in the inaugural Gather Round, and it seems they took the gathering part a little too seriously, gathering the goals and the points and the contested possessions and leaving the Blues with nothing but shattered dreams. Adelaide's coach, Matthew Nicks, tried to downplay the team's performance. Said they're in a development phase. Yeah, they're developing something, all right. A taste for blood. The Crows are hosting their own edition of Australia's Got Talent, with young guns Fogerty, Murray, Thilthorpe, Murphy, Milera, and Rankin all firing and Crouch, Berry, Schoenberg, Golant, and Haley all trying to break back in. Three tough assignments loom: Collingwood in Adelaide, Geelong at Skinny Park, and St. Kilda in Adelaide. After that, we're gonna know if Adelaide's the real deal or not. Aliir Aliir! Aliir Aliir saved the day again by stopping a late goal from Aaron Naughton. Aliir seems to have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Kind of like my bestie, Michael, who always has an icy cold bottle of Savs B waiting for me when I've had a shitty day. The Bulldog's game plan really should have been just kick it anywhere Aliir is not. Despite the conditions and the boos, Jason Horne Francis finally took off in the last quarter. He had 11 disposals, 7 contested possessions, 5 inside fifties, and 4 clearances. To celebrate, Ken Hinkley cracked open a full strength Pepsi. Port NOT having Rory Lobb proved to be the difference. Lobb continues to steal the show, proving the theory that smalls get one game to prove they can play, while talls get a hundred games to prove they can't. No Gawn, no Melbourne? Melbourne fans didn't seem that upset, saying that Melbourne's never been that good at Gather Round. They attributed their loss to having to play three games interstate in the last four weeks and called it a reality check. Wait a second. Wasn't the ass kicking in Round 2 from Brisbane your reality check? Oliver and Petracca played the worst first halves of footy that their fans have ever seen, while Essendon fans are calling for statues of Brad Scott. Personally, I think this is the most fun I've had watching Essendon since the doping. Lions roast the Roos Brisbane played champagne football in the heart of Adelaide wine country, roaring to a 75 point victory over the Roos. North Melbourne's midfield was stretched more than a pair of skinny jeans on a Fox Footy commentator. But there's no denying Harry Sheezel had another ripper of...
