I know the humour of this...yet it's a salient point. Were it not for Max's other outstanding abilities...

Max shouldn't miss the sitters. No one should.

When we sit down for dinner at my mother-in-law's place - we remind ourselves to say grace after the meal - as an indication of what a lousy cook she happens to be. There is perhaps one saving characteristic: she could kick for goal close-in better than Max can.

Out:   Billy stretch  (injured)

In:  Bernie Vince

Play Salem in Billy's position and Bernie into the backline.

Fresh air kicks to avoid picking up the ball

Turnovers

So we overlook the 8 precision kicks , some of 50m to players able to run away into attack. Week after week. Hibberd can do it, Salem when on the backline, who else can hit targets  like Lewis can?

That's what most said about Frost when we brought Petty in. Look how that worked out. 

I'm not against Baker playing, but I think with 7 weeks to go we add players with more AFL experience to the side. 

Frosty has to cement his spot and play like he did last week consistently, he has show flashes of form previous to only drop off a cliff. If he can, we look more likely to play finals than not.

thanks for providing some balance and logic to the conversation.  It wont get you too far though, some MFC fans just don't like Lewis and as soon as he plays a poor game they jump on him regardless of his previous form

As a golfer i say his swing plane is all wrong

Needs to follow down the target line more emphatically

Tmac (t1000) does it well in his stiff cyborg like action

I agree his kicking is generally elite

But he is playing a last back sweeper role in a hard press

Its like the extra man in defence role your possesion count looks great you look great but that isnt where the game is won

I want someone who can bend over and pick up a hard ball and cop a tackle if necessary and can kick as a sweeper

Hibberd and jetta do it. 

Is that too much to ask ffs!

I think the swaps are about right given whats on offer

We need a foot skilled dasher off half back (an extra hibberd) and robbie flower on the wing

Easy!
