    Can We Save Our Season?

    Yep,,, just add more composure across the centreline going forward. We have to be more mindful of our entries, Huge Hefner says .

    Yes I would try him inside, in place of Tyson. Just to see what he looks like there,,, against one of the lower sides. end of year we make some big decisions and we need to look at our fringe players. now is the time to check them. Tyson hasn't shone so far. I would consider Bugg an in instead of Tyson, Lew, or Bernie?

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    I wonder if Frost could play that Wing role, that TMc's been playing? If he's being mobile and attacking, and taking strong marks around the ground, he could try the wing role,,, and also the 2nd ruck role, from the wing. That leaves us with the Weide and TMc. If Weide comes in to partner Hogan, then TMc would be more than adept at CHB.

  6. I don't agree with substance of you post, about attending. People want to belong to something. They are not all as busy as you seem to be 'rge'. Having it at Richmond station would allow some on the spur of the moment, to hop off the train and go to the D's HQ. They're not likely to do this, having to get of the train, cross the busy roads, and then walk all the way up the hill to Jolimont. The inspiration to go see the new HQ will have evaporated. For those who have a thought of, 'maybe'. Mums with kids in tow. Single dads, it just gets that bit farther, that bit harder. The whim evaporates, with the extra walk, on top of the public transport journey. you don't see it, I see it. its an issue and the regualer d's members are unlikely to see it. St-Kilda at Moorabbin. then hey went to Seaford. Then crawled back to Moorabbin, because the members did not buy into the move... they hated it, being out of the way, and out of sight. So they did not attend training, and many stopped taking memberships. Having it close as can be, and a high profile site is crucial. Richmond station is one of the busiest stations in the state. Jolimont barely. Now the after-game. thousands of people go back thru Richmond station... our supporters many would pop in after the game, if not before the game,,, on getting off the train, to have pre-game drinks, or eats. We would get hundreds on game day following the match. Lots of Revenue. Not so having to go the opposite way, away from the station.

  8. there is a multitude of reasons why Yarra Park is the wrong choice. Tell me 'rog', which station would carry more people traffic to and from the Mcg? Richmond station or Jolimont station.?

    Can We Save Our Season?

    schight yeah.. Why couldn't we, but does it really need saving.... by whoz judgement, does it require a saving??? the way I see it is we are just on half way and we are around 4th/5th? watts to save? 4th or 5th is higher than I hoped for, or expected, and we are still in the learning/hunting mode.

    I've been going early Re the Weide, since I called for him to be drafted by us. Prayed for a little Weide in the xmas stocking. and duly delivered. Now his body looks to be getting ready for AFL, and his mind is following.

    What a change in perception Mono,, from some of our footy brains up in the grandstands, after many saying Sam's not a footballers R's whole/bootlace, and that we made another flop Draft pick. Well, he's just showing up a few wearing Omelette faces, around here.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    I can imagine both Smiths coming out, for your Weide and Frost. I would like to see Stretch in this week, after the last couple of games showed a lack of leg speed in our team. Tim Smith sold not be our 2nd ruck option. He should be our 3rd tall forward... playing 3rd tall and R/Roving. - maybe Petracca rests ? Your spot on abut Pedo, he came into a tired team, which played crapp. Not his fault. Maybe your right, its time to rest a couple of names players, one at a time. Let them hone their hunger again. and earn a spot back.

    It must be, and also covering our bases. If OMc got injured, or rubbed out,,, we would be in a strudel. But he could be handy, he's played there before. And, IMO,,, we could do a lot worse than giving Pedo one more year, for these same reasons.
  14. I think the players at Casey have to smash the door down to get into this side. We have some playing well consistently at Casey, but are they smashing it in,,, or just knocking politely.
