    Dom Tyson - Yes or No ?

    A big no for me and has been a big no for 2 years. Field Kicking is suspect. Went back to his old habit of holding on to the ball too long and looping it over his head with both arms to find time. On average 5-6 times out of 10 gets tackled from behind or to the side as a result...needs to work on peripheral vision. (in fact they all do) Cannot hit a target at close range by hand or foot, especially when a player is running past. Usually goes straight to their feet. Tackling pressure is minimal. A lot of pressure for midfield spots. But if there is no option where we can tack him on as part of a trade...re-invent him as a small forward. His goal kicking is decent. Need a left footer in forward line.

    Major Shortcomings still unresolved

    All the teams that beat us at Etihad beat us by doing one thing... run and spread + switching across the ground from half back. If you look at the amount of times the ball for example was in our forward line about 30 m out towards the pocket and the Saints won possession...they got on their bikes and switched the play to the opposite side of the ground as they knew their leg speed would beat us every time. The Doggies did it time after time last year when we lost by 100+ So whilst we go chasing the players across the ground one or two Saints ran back towards the goal, one peeled off at their half forward line as the link man and one kept floating towards goal...usually we ended up as a one on two and we were caught in the middle. Oh and another thing... It didn't help that our corridor centric mentality made us centre the ball with a risky 30m kick rather than kick down the line to a contest. How many times have we witnessed it over the years? For the love of God MFC coaching staff...direct your players NOT TO KICK INTO THE CORRIDOR AT ETIHAD PAST HALF BACK - GO DOWN THE LINE!!

    Lin Jong

    Can't see where he would fit with us but would fit in with the excess of medium sized players that Collingwood have picked up over the past 2 years. If he was delisted then what about a rookie listing?

    2 million dollar man, Dawes

    Thanks for that crunching tackle against the Crows a couple years ago Dawsey but it's time to move on. I won't repeat what I said about him whilst watching the game yesterday but needless to say it wasn't kind.

    Anybody in Beijing this weekend?

    Ahh Beijing. Where in 2004 I shanked a drop punt in Tiananmen Square and falconed an unsuspecting Chinese national. Next thing you know a white Tarago full of Chinese army soldiers wanted to know what happened. Needless to say kick to kick isn't appreciated in China as much as it is here. Got my footy back though!

    When does Petracca get unleashed?

    After the disaster that was bringing Brayshaw back into the team last wee, I'm prepared to wait it out. Brayshaw & Lumumba...who else saw that last Thursday and went..."huh?"

    Goodwin + Melksham + Fresh Start + Walk Up Start in our defence (For Dunn or Garland) = A very very good pickup.
