Whatever tanking is, I hope Freo can do it succesfully so that we can finally pick up some quality picks in the top 10. With two other ring-in sides entering the comp, I could be 90 before Freo wins a flag... if we don't get those picks. Irony is that we'll probably get beaten to the punch by that rabble up the road!

Hey Daz,
You are correct, I should do a better job of proof reading but time
and life get in the way (probably why I rather the Audio format (not
that I am saying that is perfect either).
Would love to see what you come up with. If you want to guest post
here, please feel free to let me know and I can set it up!
Molly

I think Carlton is a perfect example and I will further explore it!

It is hard to stop and know exactly what TGT is and how to spot it but do you need a better example than Carlton last year?

Looking forward to your stuff

Thanks for the nice words. The reason for the article did come off of having
many discussions about Tanking in different forums (a lot on bigfooty and
other blogs like yours) and repeating myself over and over as I think a lot
look at the perception without thinking through the whole issue and what you
will give up when you follow some of the schemas to there final conclusion.
I hope that becomes apparent as the series evolves. On Carlton, they had
most to gain from a TGT tank (even more so with Judd becoming available) but
it is impossible to prove (unless someone inside the club puts there head on
the line). I think TGT happens least often, is not what most people talk
about when they talk about tanking (they most mean LMT) and is the one sort
that something can be done about. Stay tuned as I think the next installment
is things to consider about when trying to get rid of tanking and then look
at the Options for stopping tanking (you probably already no my thoughts on
this but some might be surprised on my suggestion!)

Good write up Molly, guess this follows on from what we first discussed over at Kick2Kick.

However I do think carlton TGT, if you look at the game, it was rather obvious!
