    Is it just me or wasn’t there a better photo of him from front on?

    John Candy. Who’s Harry Crumb (1989).

    Our Tall Forwards

    Poor form rjay, no ones trying to justify anything, merely point out what is obvious to some. Clearly Curnow has talent but the main objective of a key forward is to kick goals. Curnow like Hogan struggles at times with easy set shots.

    I thought the whole idea behind bringing May in was to play on the Josh Kennedy types. But if Kennedy lines up in the goal square then Oscar would play on him? That to me makes no sense.

    Our Tall Forwards

    This is like Hogan all over again, lots of talent but can struggle with his set shots on goal. I wouldn’t know what his stats are but we all had plenty of opportunities to watch Carlton last season and from what I saw he missed a few that were 30-35 metres out with little angle.

    Curnow’s accuracy is a concern.

    Well if that’s the case Oscar definitely misses out then.

    First choice to play on a Josh Kennedy or similar would be May. First choice playing on a Franklin or similar would be Frost. To me Lever and Frost bring something different where as May and Oscar are similar. Unless Oscar was so far ahead of Frost talent wise I’m not sure why we would play him. A back six of Jetta May Lever Hibberd Frost Salem offers us so much not only defensively but also setting up play coming out of our back 50.

    Totally agree, I like Oscar and think he is developing nicely but after watching both of their output in the last 6-7 weeks I’d take Frost. I think he offers more because of his versatility.

    Good to see just about everyone has jumped off Frost again.

    Sole Captaincy?

    Part of being a leader is knowing not only when it’s your time to lead but when it’s your time to step aside. I can’t see the club making a change for next season but it has to be Jones last in an official leadership role. You don’t go from captain back to vice captain, if anything you from captain to purely playing and being there as a mentor to your successor. For me this situation feels weird because pre Roos, Jones was a rock in our team, he always led the way even though he wasn’t our most talented player, we were getting flogged every week and was overlooked for Grimes/Trengove. Over the last couple of seasons he seems to go missing in the big games. I hope this time next year we don’t have another Grimes debacle all over again.

    Who’s their forward option? Peter Wright Mids Martin, Swallow, Miller Defender I honestly can’t name a Suns defender right now. It’s been a long hot day in Sydney and I’m drawing a blank. They got pummeled in the last few week of the season, no doubt a few players had already checked out but they are effectively a mess. Bolton and Richardson need to perform next season or they’re gone, they would be viewing the Suns not only a guaranteed win but a percentage booster as well.

    The bottom six last year were : Bulldogs, Freo, Lions, Saints, Carlton and the Suns. Last season they somehow upset Sydney in Sydney, I can’t see that happening again. All but the Bulldogs have signed experienced player/s. Bulldogs have a better list anyway. Suns have lost Lynch, May and Lyons. Suns first 4 games : Saints away Freo home Bulldogs away Carlton home Catlton is their best chance and I can’t see them beating them. There’s also the cash out option should the losses start to stack up but I think I’ll just let it run.

    I posted in the fixture thread over the week that I rang Bet Easy for the odds of that happening. They wouldn’t do it then, told me to ring them back in the new year. Will roll that up with a few certainties a whack $100 on it.
