    This is a pretty [censored] poor thread. I was not a Mark Neeld fan but to start a thread purely to [censored] kick him is [censored] weak. Mark Neeld has moved on and so have we. Paul Roos was right all along with the negative veil that supporters still carry.

    Why the f**k would Channel 7 show Essendon v Geelong when there is a QUALIFYING final with 1st vs 4th? Absolutely hate that channel sometimes.

    I'll be disappointed if the club doesn't proactively sort this soon. The whole waiting for CBA is rubbish. Can/is accommodated in others dealings already. Id call his bluff. 'bout the club !!

    Oliver to Weideman. (Oh that felt good to write and I hope I get to write that a lot more in the AFL threads). The contested grab and then the goal. Love 'em

    Matt Jones is no longer a list clogger. After 2015 he went away, worked on his fitness and skills, and came back in an impressive condition. From memory, he played round 1 this season. His kicking has improved, his game awareness has improved, and he does one thing well that Roos loves - he plays the role assigned to him. He is another one, just like Jetta, who has improved out of sight under our new player-development emphasis. I don't see him as best 22, and younger players will overtake him easily, but I would not be letting him go while we have a handful of players who definitely offer us nothing.

    I usually enjoy your mad posts, but this is not one of them. I am a big believer in making your VFL affiliate as strong as possible. I will be following Casey's finals with a keen interest. If they are happy to associate themselves with a team that nobody else would touch over that past decade, that's good enough for me. Valuable finals experience for our young guys too. Very happy.

    Spoke to Macca at the game. He is confident we can settle and get back on top. Says the boys panicked because it's finals. They just need to get out there and play as normal. They already look more composed this qtr. Much more playing on and kicking cleanly up field to more free Scorps players.

    Clark was a sensation for us early. He really did explode in the early games for us. Such a bloody shame, as he looked like the star we had been craving.

    Macca didn't hand out this week's lotto numbers as well by any chance? Was spot on by the sounds of it.

    What's the score? got the Essendon-Geelong game televised, which is nuts when there is a qualifying final at the same time, surely you'd want to televise the best game to promote the VFL as much as possible.

    Dear Biffen, Stop letting women throw themselves at you, and letting men want to be a poorer version of you. Stop engaging and arguing with simpletons just because they follow your football team. Stop being so incredibly good looking. and charming. Stop talking to yourself in the 3rd person

    Any ideas how we'd replace 11 players (a quarter of our list) and what with? Our list no longer needs surgery that radical.

    A lot of calls to promote Wagner in this thread. Personally I would be in no hurry to do this - he's a first year rookie playing in a position where spots might be tight next year with Melksham, possibly Hibberd etc being added to the mix. While he played most of the season, he didn't get to the "automatic selection" level that we saw vandenBerg get to the year before, and I don't think it gets any easier for him to get a game next year. Wagner has had a promising first season, but he's by no means a certain thing yet. He gets his second year on the rookie list for mine and no more.

    I don't know the rumour, but I'm going to assume the only reasonable deduction - Stef Martin and Clark had a falling out over our use of the bugle player before the games in '12.

    Not sure if you were looking for a response...my thoughts are that Max K seems unable to cement a spot at Casey so is in the Development League a lot. Has been a rookie for a couple of years now so wonder if he will be kept on. Mitch K has an ACL injury and is only 19 with no bulk on him so is a few years away from making the AFL side. Which leaves us only with Spencer who is out of contract next year as an FA. He was an FA this year and signed up for one year which I think was terrific of him knowing he would only get a game if Gawn was injured. So I would put another ruckman very high on our list of priorities, preferably someone who is in their early to mid 20's that can also play forward.

    I'd think it'd be relatively easy to involve a 3rd team like GWS or GCS that hold bulk 2016 picks, who would be happy to shelve a 1st rounder for next year.

    Hardly in a meltdown Red. I may be among the lesser number here who simply doesn't think he is quite the football progidy many others guffaw. He is good for sure but very lazy and inconsistent. He isnt for mine an absolute necessity for our success. Our fwd 50 actually functions better without him currently . Imho Right atm we need more grunt and class in the middle. We can muster goalkicking players. My view is simply along the lines of PR himself who says you don't wait till contracts are up to sort your list. Even though that comment was more directed at FA the likes of Hogans situation is the same; so treat as same He signs before trade week or trade him. Is about Melbourne....not 'tickets on self'

    14 marks (5 contested) in round 22 seems to account to nothing. Prior to this weekend Riewoldt's record was 18 marks. But at least Schwarz is saying Hogan should take a leaf out of Hawkin's book. It only took Hawkins 6 seasons to have a breakout year and 69 games to reach Hogan's tally of 85.
