Geelong plan to use Dangerfield up forward more this year.  As crazy as it sounds, Frost may be the logical match-up as he has the pace and strength to go with him.

My first thought was to give Jetta first crack as I think he can match him both in the air and when the ball hits the deck, but I see the merit of Frost as well. 

My thought is that Danger would cut him to pieces.

Frosty is an athlete first and foremost and wouldn't have the footy smarts to go with Danger.

The best way to beat Danger as a forward is to stop supply and force him back into the midfield.

The Swans failed badly at this in the finals and left Rampe exposed.

Yeah right.

Which is why, with finals on the line the paid professionals had Frost plaiyng at Casey at the end of the season and Tmac's younger brother in the ones. I mean what would would the coaching staff know. 

Sometimes one wonders, don't they.

Actually he couldn't get a game at Casey. I recall Drunken saying he sat next to him at a Casey final and he said he wasn't injured just badly out of form.

Correct and not correct, Frosty didn't qualify for Casey for finals, I had a chat to him at Williamstown, totally understood being dropped from AFL side, said his form dropped away horribly

So who is officially still in the rehab group? 

Think AVB and McKenna are the 2 long term, the rest, niggles, tightness, working back from op, injury

Can someone explain why we did not/could not rookie AVB and then see how he went at Casey. Early days but not looking like a smart move. Hope I am wrong.

Thanks for clarifying. I couldn't understand why he'd dropped so badly out of contention that he didn't play for Casey. That makes more sense.

These two are a real worry. Has McKenna ever been fit and injury free since coming to Melbourne? Another year on the sidelines would see him done, just seems such a waste of a spot at the moment. And Vanders a bit the same although we know what he can do when injury free, but photos suggest he is a long way off.

Saty, any thoughts on these two?

If nothing else, treating your own players with respect encourages others (think Lewis and Lever) to see Melbourne as a desirable club to join.  Transferring an injured player to the rookie list is unlikely to enhance the club's reputation.

We chased McKenna for a reason, just had a rotten run, he has a year, they will reevaluate then, he is rated within the club

Same with AVB, has a year contract, we all know what he can bring, if they can get him back

As I have stated before, with injury these days the Club does it properly, joked with Boxing Coach that he was the leash for Viney, to ensure he only did what he was supposed to

Of the rehab on Monday

Kent - full shoulder reco, so no contact work, probably knows the longer in rehab further down the pecking order

Jones - has had a calf niggle

Petracca - same, niggle in the leg, not sure where, think the quad

Joel Smith -  building back after a couple of serious injuries

Tim Smith - same

Balic - was in rehab, didn't seem restricted or uncomfortable, so probably reported a niggle

Weed - coming back from ankle op

Yes, Time and Saty. It was the case - drop in form at that point and non-qualification to play for Casey. Still, given the result of that season, I hope he had a good rest, kept the faith and it seems, used the time profitably to prepare for a very big 2018. Carna Dees!
