People feel sorry for them like stray dogs. 

Every heart beats true, for the Red and the Blue,
And we sing this song to you,
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the Red and the Blue.

Watt happens if we trade P23 & 28, for an upgrade ???

Ha... another Lamb to the slaughter. 

Watch the Blues pull their collective thumbs out, now they are done with bottom ing out.

well look at their delistings

Mullet, O'Shea, Shaw - 1 year at 2nd club

Wright, Silvagni, Lamb, Kerridge - few years at 2nd clubs

McDaid, Byrne - Irish flops

that leaves two players who the club actually drafted with high hopes for and one was a rookie

Positive changes

Can't believe it took so long!  I'll set them up and you knock 'em down.

Hmmm, after Trade Week it’s almost as if we’ve gone back to work! Never mind, cup week coming up.

Not I ,ET.

I was recently barred from Flinders Island for shooting strays.

They tried to tell me the dogs were native to the Island.

"Not anymore " I replied.

Anyone seen much of Sam McLarty? 

Some Pies fans aren't happy he was delisted. A reasonably high drafted young tall getting the chop after only 2 years is unusual.

Black did his ACL in June. 

Mav Weller, wow wee...he plays like his eyes are too close together and they’re crossed. 

Perhaps Weller's parents are related?

And perhaps they are both related to Jed Lamb?

Will Langford?

What the hell happened to Langford ? A few seasons back he looked terrific and had a likely stellar career.

Need to get another midfielder for depth and help rotations (or the injury curse).  It’s a long year.  Weller,  Sheridan,Partington or Honeychurch all are possibilities.

That's very interesting, and probably a lot to do with Bernie's retirement. It's offset slightly through the trade ins, and the fact Bernie is staying on at the club in some capacity, but it does make a good argument to pick up an experienced player somehow. The problem is the ones up for grabs have very little appeal.

This will take another hit when Lewis retires also so unless our youngsters take another big step up in 2019, we need to be on the lookout for a premium experienced player for end of next year. After that there's only Jones, so let's hope we get where we need to be before that happens.

It’s a relatively meaningless stat. For example get a young star in instead of an old average player and stat gets worse.

True. But how much does leadership impact on the development of that player? It's a hard one to quantify but I reckon there's significant value up to a point.

Gold Coast are in for a world of pain next season. They may be the first team in decades to go winless. It's a realistic possibility IMO.
