    We are so far off that been a consideration it’s not funny, it’s 50-50 if we even play finals this year. ANB is 22 and not even 50 game into his career for a player of his age and experience he is well ahead of the curve so far as development goes, Jones was also a horrible user of the ball ealier in his career and while it never became elite it got to the point of been passable.

    People have been asking for more speed and now we have it but I wanted to talk about J Smith. He came in following Levers injury, we then looked too short against pies and port so Petty was bought in but Smith some how survived and got to then play as a mid size or rebounding defender role taking over from Vince. He the has a terrible game against the saints, meanwhile Vince shows he wares in the 2s and we commit to Wagner for another year so we must see something in him. Question is how does Smith hold his spot? You could maybe even try Hannan down back in that role rather than dropping him, hes certainly a better play atm and couldn’t be worse than smith in that role

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    That had to be the most frustrating game to watch this year, we completely dominated them for the first half for almost no reward, you have to commend port on defending so well while under siege, I now have a new respect for them after that game. I suspect they and other teams have been doing home work on our game plan and it will only get harder from here, if we don’t have some other tricks up our sleeve and adjust it will continue to be frustrating for us to watch.

    Go and get Gaff!

    So I guess by that logic we wouldn’t have wanted buddy or danger either, even the best players have bad games. We should be so lucky as to get Gaff

    Bernie keen to lure Sloane to the Dees

    Definitely should be attempting to get him, hopeful we are at the point where someone like him will come for success rather than money. Much like danger to Geelong

    Jordan De Goey

    Sure we could get De Goey, just don’t cry that we have to give up Petracca and Brayshaw to do it

    Changes v Port

    We looked one dimensional because we panicked and all crowed round the ball yesterday rather than just a few going in, once the ball came out into space the pies inevitably had an out number making us look slow as a result. The players need to realise that everyone going in isnt the best option. Buggered if I’m going to watch a replay but I would suspect Viney, Oliver and Jones were the culprits and need to work together better

    Changes v Port

    Badly exposed for height in the backline yesterday especially once Oscar went off, so Frost probably comes in for Smith Given out mid has been beaten the last 2 weeks VFL form should dictate Tyson and Stretch both come in, first out on form is probably Harmes, and given Spargo gets up the ground I don’t see why Stretch can’t play his role. Another option is Garlett however I haven’t seen anything from the vfl reports to indicate he has bashing the door down, I’d be bring in Bugg before him if you absolutely wanted another fwd Perderon also doesn’t look up to it and makes our fwd line to top heavy, thought Tim Smith was stiff to be dropped so I’d bring him back for the fwd/ relief ruck role he also gives more when the ball goes to ground than either Pedo or Weid

    Maybe to soon but time for Tyson, Stretch and Tim smith to come back, Frost to unfortunately we are just to small and once Oscar went down we had no chance. Pedo is done in my books, did some ok things but the game has gone past him, think him playing fwd is part of the reason hogan had a stinker. Spargo back to the 2s good first year but time to stop mucking round and get ready for finals. Harmes has had a good run but he’s keeping Tyson out who I think deserves another go Joel Smith good efforts just to small to play on the 2nd fwd or 1st when Oscar is off

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Most disappointing thing was today felt like déjà vu of round 23 last year, it’s like we learnt nothing since then. We had no answer to there run and spread last time or this time. You don’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water as we are probably better than 12 other teams but their is some questions that need answering if this year is to be anymore the a foray into the 8

    GAMEDAY - Round 12

    All these people calling for Vince and Lewis to be dropped where have you been the last 6 weeks, silly to judge a player off 1 game

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 12

    Pedo and stretch for mine, think hibberd will play levers role and a runner will come in to play the role hibberd was playing

    Slobbo's Mid Year All Australian

    Other than Franklin due to the number of games missed, and Martin who is just in on rep you could make an argument for all those named, at least he didn’t stack it full of midfielders. Melksham wouldn’t be far off getting in that team in place of Dusty and this coming game will decide the Gawn v Grundy debate, Jetta also would be close

    Wines Unsure of Contract

    So with Wines and Gaff the team would look something like this, just take out Vince and Lewis B: Michael Hibberd, Oscar McDonald, Neville Jetta HB: Angus Brayshaw, Jake Lever, Christian Salem C : Ollie Wines , Jack Viney, Andrew Gaff HF: James Harmes, Jesse Hogan, Jake Melksham F: Tim Smith, Tom McDonald, Christian Petracca Foll: Max Gawn, Nathan Jones, Clayton Oliver I/C: Bayley Fritsch, Mitch Hannan, Alex Neal-Bullen, Charlie Spargo Emg: Jeff Garlett, Tom Bugg, Dom Tyson, Billy Stretch Maybe we can go the 4 peat
