About a third in, we were looking pretty irresistible with clearances and handballing forward. Then we choked as expected.
The first part is the easy part.
Trade Watts - he consumes too much of the club's attention and is difficult to keep out as a number 1 pick. Kennedy, old man Trengrove, KH all perform better at VFL. If contractually (or otherwise) entitled to be picked, he should tried at CHB where we could drool at kicks I50.
Trade Bugg. Troublesome and still has currency.
Offer and then delist if required Vince, King, Spencer, Lewis, Kent, Hulett, Garland, Trengrove
Rookie a ruckman from Box Hill. That is where we got our good ones from.
Only recruit KPP's over 195 cm. Hullett, Smith, Smith, Kielty are unlikely.
The second part is harder being an apology from the Board that we did not reach our full potential. An acknowledgement from the football department that they were gooses in picking players which they could not trust. The players don't gate-crash. They are picked without immaculate disposal in the VFL and reasonable in the AFL. They are picked while not running to contests in either.
Hannan - looked good when filling in in the midfield
TMac up forward
Rubbed our noses in it -
Don't give up yet - OMac, Frost, Wagner
