  1. Based on Plapp's report Kennedy will definitely play. King should but may not be risked.
  2. In essence I agree with you WJD, however, if May is gettable I would think it is a priority. He brings leadership, strength and a mongrel we are so badly lacking. At his best he would make OMac,TMac & Frost and others around him better players and free them up for what they do best.Yes, we don't want to sell the farm. First round pick is probably too much, unless we have stellar run and finish high on the ladder (unlikely). Prefer a player and second round pick. GC won't like that but if he really wants to go players usually hold the whip hand. $600,00 may seem steep but after forking out similar for Chris Dawes it seems like chicken feed. Agree, re second forward/ ruck and outside speed but I'm not sure any more vital than the potential qualities May would bring to us. Anyway, probably a moot point. He will most likely re sign with the Suns and after they beat us this week why would he want to come to the Demons? *Money on Lynch to kick 7 given reasonable conditions.
  3. Amongst other changes, In: King. Out: Weideman. Yes King is raw but named in the best at Casey. Allows Pedo to go forward at times and share the ruck. Watts game suffering so needs to stay out of taps. TMac too valuable elsewhere. King surely can't be worse than Weideman when going forward. It's left field but,as I see it,very little to lose and King May surprise!
  4. Going to be tough. Favourites against North Melbourne who will come out breathing fire. Similarly, Gold Coast season will be on the line and they now have a two week break whereas we will only have six days to prepare for that game. Collingwood's season might also be do or die (if it's not already) by Queen's Birthday.
  5. In a heartbeat!
  6. Emergencies can play for Casey on Sunday.
  7. Agreed. StKilda had a good win against GWS but are blessed with no injuries ATM. GWS has star players out as long as your arm,we're one man down for most of the game in Kennedy,Hopper with a broken finger and Wilson playing out the game less than 100%.Let's keep the Saints win in perspective.
  8. Keith Greg in a heartbeat. Just about saw every time they clashed,and,the most unbiased supporter would admit,that Robbie taught him a lesson on each occasion. Sure,Greig was a very good player but much easier playing in a star studded team.Won two Brownlows but so did Peter Moore.Flower much more skilled than Francis Bourke who arguably played his best football in defence. Travesty.
  9. Not sure any StKilda player had a dislocated finger(suspected broken) or any injury for that matter. They're blessed atm..Even if u discount Wilson & Hopper (which I don't) one rotation down for nearly three quarters is massive in modern football. Add to the fact that Kennedy is quality and the aforementioned extensive injury/suspension list the the result has a massive asterisk. Withdraw six of StKilda's best and insert the Giants missing 6+ quality players and it's a 10 goal + win for GWS. 'Facts are facts'.

  11. Might be a point on Wilson but other facts are inescapable. StKilda are building but not in the class of an anywhere near full strength GWS outfit.Even allowing for Wilson. Kennedy and Hopper down killed them as did Smith and Spencer for us v Richmond. Reverse the injury list between Saints & Giants and there is no contest.*Please note I despise GWS but facts are facts.
  12. Agree. No love lost for GWS but the fact is they are currently decimated by injury and suspension along with criticall in game injuries. StKilda only missing Armitage.No doubt anywhere near full strength Giants flogs this StKilda team.
  13. Hopper playing with one hand,Wilson concussed,Kennedy gone. Add Coniglo and Shiel underdone along with Whitfield,Buntine,Whitfield,Greene and Deledio all missing,amongst others,let's keep this win in perspective.
  14. Never minded the sub rule.Helped avoid situations like this and us against Richmond. In fact, two subs even better. Few games then decided by injury/lack of rotation imbalance.*If subs unused they could be released to play at VFL when possible.
  15. Well I can only hope your not a member of recruitment department.
