    Its a ruthless game & there is no room for sentimentality if you want to be successful. I love the bloke but reckon he is struggling & lucky to be in the 22. Should be delisted at years end.

    Seems to totally lack any aggression or physical edge to his game. Reminds me very much of Col Garland. ATM he is a back up player & not in my best 22 but still handy to have. Would love to see him develop a bit of "mongrel'.

    Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

    Nothing bizarre about it. The last 3 times we played them we have had their measure but only managed to win 1 of those mainly due to lack of composure & experience. We have improved from 2017 more than they have.

    Viney update: Out for Round 1

    My word I blame the Club. Nothing hindsight about it. Thought it was dumb then & still think it was dumb. Why on earth risk a champion player. We know how difficult foot injuries can be.

    Robbo (Mark) doesn't think we'll make finals

    Typical Melbourne supporters getting in a tiz over the media. Every season at least one team that is hyped up falls in a hole & fails to deliver. We could have made the finals the last 2 years & fell over when things got a bit hard for the precious possums. Regardless of injuries our losses to North & Collingwood were pretty gutless & we didn't deserve to play finals.

    Mate I don't think you have a clue. Grimes is 26 with over 100 games up. Played 25 games this year. Flag winner & 5th in the Tigers B&F in a Premiership year. Plays on talls or shorts & is the first picked in their defence after Rance. Tough, smart & determined - coaches love him & supporters love him.

    And here's me thinking that the whole point of football was to win premierships. Obviously the Richmond coaches think Grimes skill are adequate for the job but you obviously know better.

    Might have been reliable & dedicated but still a poor selection by the Club IMHO. He was courageous but not overly quick & had very average skills. Basically a Casey level player useful as a backup. To add further insult we picked him in the 09 pre season draft ahead of Dylan Grimes.

    Was poorly treated by the selectors. They seemed to have ruled a line through him early on just like Dunn in 2016. He has his faults but was overlooked again & again despite good form at Casey.

    Lacks any physicality to his game - also sometimes lacks awareness & gets run down from behind - a top up player only.

    How on earth would playing at Melbourne get him an extra 6 possessions a game ?? We already have an oversupply of middle of the road midfielders. What we need is quick, goalkicking forwards, small defenders, KPP and back up ruckmen.

    If he wants to stay on our list he must improve his kicking. Even 30m out on a 45 deg angle he cannot be relied on.

    Had a good look at him this year both in the seniors & at Casey & can't see him making the grade. Had opportunities in the VFL finals but looked very ordinary.
