Thaught Garlett was serviceable around the packs but not outstanding though. Can add pace around the forward line. Disposal was okay today as well.

He lurks well and he is in the right positions just isn’t having that pick me game. I don’t know what the coaches are looking for but I thought we’d see him deep crumbing but seemed to play high half forward. The Hannan role. Interesting to see what happens for the rest of the year. We have to be a better team with him than without him.

Have you been to training and watched the repeat runs /time trials. Frost is a super powerful guy but he is towards the back of any kind of endurance work. Fast twitch athlete as they say. 

He played up the ground against Hawthorn and was repeatedly caught out of position and didn't have the speed to catch it up when he was run around.

Mate that is dribble. If in your opinion he's not fit enough then why is he selected to play at CHB the majority of the time? I trust the fitness coaches at the club might have a better idea of what position Frost is capable of playing.

If Port Adelaide can carry that pea heart Lindsay Thomas, then we can play Jeffy. Thomas wouldn't be worthy of carrying Jeffy's bags. Don't wait for a break out performance at Casey. He's a Rolls Royce driving around a Warrigul Road car yard there.

Thought Pedo was poor today. Can't understand why he never played forward & Hutchins back. Hutchins is a shocking kick & it showed.

You have no idea. Obviously it’s turn into a defender or no more AFL games for you.

Frost definitely must be in next week  

cannot believe he didn’t play v pies v cox and v power v Dixon

otherwise Goodwin does not see him as part of setup and would have to trade him

big strong defenders are sought after 

I watch him most weeks. He plays well against bottom teams. They had a small forward line with no much talent. When he plays well against top team you can call for his promotion.

Didn't see any of the game, but it's terrific to see Weideman kick 7.  Poor opposition or not, he's still done well to jag that many and puts himself in the frame for an immediate recall.

The rest don't exactly get me excited and, if we don't have any injuries, I don't we'll make more than 1 or 2 changes for the St. Kilda game this week.

Nev says hello, he is at the back all the time, but he has actually improved his times, as has the whole team

Issue I have with Frost is his reading of the game, that's why he gets caught out, give him a one on one job and he is ok

We need to stretch the opposition.

Bringing in Weed and Frost would give players like Hogan and Hibberd more freedom. We would score more.

If Stretch comes in, would stretch em even more, pardon the pun

Is he playing well with confidence, getting the ball from own efforts?

frost offers speed. sure, his kicking and decision making is iffy but so was tom mcdonald in his first 6 years as a defender. im not saying frost is going to be better or anything like that but at least he takes the game on and tries to break the lines. we only have 2 players on our list that do that. hunt and frost.

Mate don't accuse me of having no idea, I simply just asked the question. Only post if you have something intelligent to say in future.

I say Mr Miracle, Pedo has played as a defender previously for MFC, perhaps as a 'new' supporter you didn't see those games

Or you are just talking out of somewhere else. It is another posters opinion

Perhaps it is Rawlings seeing what Hutchins can offer up front should he be short a tall like he has been for a few games this season, my opinion

Disappointed I was hoping every player was going to find ripping form playing a bum team like Coburg but it only looks like Weed, Frost and Stretch found form. Disappointed in the form of the 3 I wanted in in Petty, Baker and Garlett I was hoping they would star.

So the only change I would make for the seniors would be Weed in for T.Smith

Hutchins forward and Pedo down back? Is that because they are testing to see if they can bring Peds into the seniors as a defender maybe?

It must be, and also covering our bases.   If OMc got injured, or rubbed out,,, we would be in a strudel.

But he could be handy, he's played there before.   And, IMO,,,  we could do a lot worse than giving Pedo one more year, for these same reasons.

I can imagine both Smiths coming out, for your Weide and Frost.

I would like to see Stretch in this week, after the last couple of games showed a lack of leg speed in our team.

Good on Weideman for playing well but I think people are missing the value that Tim Smith has given to the team with his forward pressure. He's our best tackling forward and I think he has to stay for that role.

Do we drop Hogan? That would be bold but I'd support it if the coaches wanted to fire him up.

Or do we drop Petracca and play the 4 tall guys and get Hogan out in space and Smith playing as the small pressuring?

Or is Tommy Mc injured.

Great to have Weideman back in form (against absolute battlers in Coburg) but I'm still yet to be convinced 3 talls works for us. Pedersen was in consistently great form but when he came in to the side the balance of the forward line was a mess. Weideman played against Ess, Saints and GC so it's not easy to work out how well the 3 worked with him but when Smith came in we destroyed Carl and Adelaide. 

Tim Smith sold not be our 2nd ruck option.  He should be our 3rd tall forward...   playing 3rd tall and R/Roving. - maybe Petracca rests ?

Your spot on abut Pedo, he came into a tired team, which played crapp.   Not his fault.

Maybe your right, its time to rest a couple of names players, one at a time.  Let them hone their hunger again.  and earn a spot back.

Thanks KC and all who have posted. 

So ... Sam looks a certainty

Stretch sounds like he will be pressing ANB or even Trac

Looking forward to your summation even more than usual  

 

What a change in perception Mono,,  from some of our footy brains up in the grandstands, after many saying Sam's not a footballers R's whole/bootlace,  and that we made another flop Draft pick.

 

Well, he's just showing up a few wearing Omelette faces, around here.

You're going a bit early there DV8. 

Performing in the VFL is one thing. The step up to AFL is a whole different ball game. If there are people suggesting that Frost isn't up to it - that is probably due to his AFL performances (which weren't good enough or he wouldn't be playing VFL) They won't be wearing any egg on their faces until Frost can replicate his VFL form in the AFL. He simply hasn't done that. He needs to or he will be delisted.

Smith doesn't at all play like a small pressuring player, he's a lead up forward and didn't work with Hogan and TMac, they all flew for the ball too often together. So I think he'll come out for Weid, Weid is a much better ruck, has had games where he's put great pressure on (Adelaide last year) but most importantly seemed to know when to time his leads better in those games he played. If Smith stays in then we are playing 3 talls anyway, and we surely wouldn't try and run with 4. While Hogan had a poor game I think he was still at least on par with Smith and Tracc was much better, don't look to drop guys on name, the same as they should get games on name alone either.

One thing with Pedo, there will always be 100% effort

Hey guys.....not sure maybe I was vague.  By Sam I meant Weideman.

Sure Sam Frost may come into calculation but SW is surely a certainty.  A good young forward learning his craft very nicely.

@Deemania since 56 if you are talking about Stretch - probably 70% of his possessions were first touch possies and 30% receiving from others. Really good game from him.

I've been going early Re the Weide, since I called for him to be drafted by us.

Prayed for a little Weide in the xmas stocking.  and duly delivered.

Now his body looks to be getting ready for AFL, and his mind is following.
