  1. Langdon wouldn’t get a game at the Pies. Phillips & Sidebottom are both much better Wingers.
  2. Very ordinary player tonight. The knock on his disposal is correct. On tonight’s performance, a Pick around 30 is about right. On tonight’s game Zak Jones is a better player, he’d be worth about a Pick 25.
  3. It doesn’t matter who you drop them for, because you’re dropping them to send a loud and clear message to improve. That message is louder & clearer if you drop them for an obviously less talented player, but one that busts his guts and gives you all he’s got.
  4. Got news for you. Frosty has been among the better for many weeks now. Even the Frost bashes have gone silent. As far as Hannan is concerned, there was no cake and no icing today, as there hasn’t been since his return many weeks ago! Agree with Jetta. Terribly underdone. Needed at least another one at Casey. Another obvious selection mistake which required no hindsight as so many queried it pre game.
  5. Unfortunately when you get a chance against the bottom club, Gold Coast, and you look a million miles away, your cards are quite rightly marked. Perhaps a Similar situation with JKH, despite several Casey bog’s that insipid mistake in the dying minutes of the Crows game where he went to ground and allowed Jenkins to goal, may well have marked his cards.
  6. You make a great point and I should have elaborated on that part of my Plan. To get genuinely good players there, GC would be allowed to make these 2 players a very special financial offer because only 66% of their salary would go into their Salary Cap for the life of their GC careers. I want to stress that this is it, no more. After this it is relocate to Tasmania or fold.
  7. My recommendation is that GC are given 2 additional Picks before the second round commences. These 2 Picks at 19 & 20 would need to be traded for players that are no older than 28 to protect them from being stupid enough to trade for a 30 year old Bryce Gibbs etc. This would mean that in addition to having the first Pick in every Round, they’d get 2 quality players in the mould of a 25 yo Melksham, Hibberd who were traded for later Picks than 19 & 20.
  8. Well, those two are hardly good endorsements of positive behaviour. Shaw, a bogan Rat Pack member disliked by Buckley who pushed him out to improve culture and Goddard, another disliked teammate at two Clubs who would sulk and throw the lollies all over the change rooms at teammates errors. No, I’m afraid we’re going to need much better examples of genuinely champion players to convince me.
  9. Jonathon Brown, whose opinion I respect, said it went on far too long and he didn’t like it.
  10. I’m racking my brain trying to come up with one other player in 50 years of watching footy who so demonstrably and indiscreetly criticised a teammate on the field and within a quarter. Can anyone think of one? I can recall Ricoh used to wave his arms and look sad whenever teammates kicked poorly to him, but can’t recall ever seeing what May did today.
  11. You’re totally missing his point which was that he simply named some first year draft picks that haven’t taken 4 years to develop & contribute.
  12. Well, if he’s going to start yelling at his Melbourne teammates, he’s going to be pretty bloody hoarse by the time he gets through all the insipid forwards, starting with Weideman, Hannan, Tim Smith & MacDonald.
  13. We’d have been better off just using Knightmare’s Phantom Draft than the spud’s we’ve been paying for. Similar to the share market where so many of the highly paid Fund Managers can’t even beat the Index or an ETF.
  14. Well done Frosty. Keep sticking it up the haters & the doubters. Played on their talls as well as Walters at various times and was terrific. Doubtless, the haters will only focus on the 2 mistakes instead of the 10 positives.
