    Would we take $cully back?

    An outrageous steal!!! His ankle must be all kinds of buggered, otherwise this is ridiculous!

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Would feel better about that.. but would Freo be prepared to pay Brayshaw plus first round? Steep!

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Will be absolutely filthy if all we get back for him is Steven May! Don't get me wrong, May is a good player.. but he doesn't hold a candle to Hogan's potential in my view... In addition to the fact May is 3 years older!

    Really? Ridiculous.

    Dees who may be gone in 2019

    We thoughts so when we traded for him, and he hasn't had an opportunity to show us since he got here. So I think he at least gets the opportunity to do that. Perfect rookie candidate for me.

    Would be very surprised if they only now got McKenna back to fitness and delist him, at worst will be re-rookied I reckon.
  7. If they strapped it on the weekend and put him back on, then there is 0% chance it was a strain. This really only leaves a cork, albeit possibly a bad one. Bad or not, if its a knock/cork then he is zero risk of not playing this weekend. Its really only then about managing discomfort.

    Changes v Gold Coast Suns

    Surprised on the calls to drop JKH, that was just about the best game I’ve seen him play from memory. Only change (non injury enforced, ie Hoges) would be Smith. Killed us regularly. I wonder if it’s worth it with Hibbo only a few weeks away though given his replacement (Wagner) would only be a temp.

    Hibberd ready yet? Big upgrade over Smith!

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    Bloody hell. This has compelled me to break my own Demonland embargo (brought about by fear of catching a severe case of sky-is-falling-in-itis). Massive loss, but they shouldn't get cute by moving Fritsch or Harmes around. Robbing Peter to pay Paul and all that. Wagner would be the choice for me. Not ideal, but he does have the ability to rebound and you know he will be up for it in the cauldron of Kardinia.

    Changes v Fremantle

    No doubt Petty looked lost lost and overawed, but one of the other glaring problems was that he was outbodied. A flagged weakness from his draft profile was that he wasn't strong in 1:1 contest... and so it was. 'Backing him in' won't change that. Has to go. Frost and Stretch have to be given another shot, but they're running out of chances. Smith tries but is a bit limited at the moment. From my perspective, the ease with which they scored can be heavily attributed to the lack of defensive pressure in our f50 which allowed them to waltz out and hit targets. We were too tall, while we repeatedly missed tackles as well. Hannan was invisible on the weekend, pressure included. I think its time Garlett comes back, and I'd bring Spargo back as well. Out: Petty, Smith, Weideman, Hannan, Tyson In: Frost, Stretch, Spargo, Garlett, Vince FB: Jetta McDonald Hibberd B: Lewis Frost Salem 😄 Harmes Viney Brayshaw F: Petracca Hogan Fritsch FF: Garlett McDonald Spargo Foll: Gawn, Jones, Oliver Res: Stretch, Melksham, Vince, ANB EDIT: After reading some comments from the Casey thread I'd be open to switching Frost with Keilty... however I've gone a bit gunshy on unknown backmen after Petty.

    Changes v Port

    Can't agree with the numerous calls to drop Tracc, he really hasn't been that bad. Taking contested marks, getting at least 15 touches, having a couple of really important involvements a game. Is he tearing the joint up? No. Do we believe he's capable of tearing the joint up? Absolutely.. and it appears this difference between current output and long term potential is why people are calling for him to be dropped. Not a good enough reason in my eyes. I 100% want to see him play better, but he's far from our worst.

    MFC Cactus for the rest of 2018

    I've deliberately kept a wide berth of this place since Monday until now... Like you, it seems I was wise. What a ridiculously negative thread after 1 loss in 7 games. Absurd.
