  1. From the website: "Going out of the side is key forward Christ Dawes and utility Tomas Bugg. Midfielder Viv Michie, second-year player Alex Neal-Bullen and ruckman Jake Spencer have been named emergencies." Hard to believe he can't play with a name like that!
  2. What a ridiculous post. If you actually read his comments it is evident that his intention is to stay at the club.
  3. I think this post would have been received a lot better on here if the title of the thread was chosen more effectively, and one that did not elicit such emotional responses from posters. It raises some interesting points about the strength of our key position forwards on our list, particularly relative to our complete dearth of midfield talent. Premiership sides are always founded on very strong midfield groups - which we are a long way off at the moment. We need to be creative in our search for midfield talent and the opening post does this. Sometimes you have to give up something good to get
  4. Looking at those statistics, while his disposal numbers are down about 10% from last year or 2 possessions a game, he is kicking 0.2 goals more a game (around 20% more than last ) and getting 1.2 more tackles per game (around 20% more than last year). This indicates he has had in many ways a similar season to last year. In my opinion Sylvia is one of few must keeps on our list. As our side improves, Sylvia will become an elite player of the competition. I think he actually plays his best football when he spends more time across half forward, as evident in his games against Richmond and Coll
  5. You're kidding aren't you? Newton plays one decent quarter and he's 'giving us more' than Bate and Dunn. Dunn is clearly the new Cameron Bruce on this forum.
  6. Have you? He came second in the 2008 Grand Final sprint...can't be that slow
  7. Is this YzeMagic in disguise? This kind of player bashing is ridiculous, he was in our best 3 or 4 today, it's diabolical how bad your post is.
  8. Fantastic post. 100% agree. His defensive game is very underrated. His kicking is average, not "terrible". However he did have a terrible kicking year a few years ago when he had ankle problems. His handballing can at times be poor... however I don't think you can blame him for the turnover with McKenzie as he had his back turned and was attempting to keep the ball moving quickly after a fantastic kick out from Strauss. Thus I think it was primarily McKenzie's fault, as the caller, as he had a clearer view of the play. The other handball to Bate was ordinary and slowed us down but it didn't ca
  9. Yeh don't pick our best player - one of about 5 on our list who actually has class?
  10. B: Bennell Warnock Rivers HB: Bruce Frawley MacDonald C: Grimes Moloney Davey HF: Bate Miller Garland F: Green Jamar Petterd R: Martin, Jones, McDonald Int: Dunn, Trengove, Scully, Maric/Jetta If Garland doesn't get up then I'd play Maric or Jetta, whoever misses out. I'd play Jamar in the goal square like against Carlton last year for 60% of the game, the rest in the ruck when Martin needs a break. Green will also run through the midfield for parts of the game.
  11. Stef Martin has the makings of a very good ruckman if you combine his rucking ability and athleticism. Remember he is still learning the game - and the ruck position
  12. B Rivers/Macdonald Warnock Garland HB Morton Frawley Bruce © C Davey Grimes Scully HF Green (VC) Miller (VC) Bate FF Maric Jurrah Sylvia R Jamar Moloney Jones IC Trengove Martin Watts McDonald Unlucky: Bennell, Rivers/MacDonald, Wonaeamirri, Dunn If McDonald is not captain he would not be in my best 22 as he will take a spot of a developing midfielder, but I think in all likelihood he will be.
  13. He's been a great servant of the club, but he's clearly not an "f'ing [censored]". There's obviously a lot of resentment within many senior players about the way the club has been run under Bailey. This is probably a large reason why Brock chose to leave. You can understand why they'd be frustrated, we've been trying to lose and for the players winning is their career and what they strive for. Sadly the way football is going these days careers are cut short for those who are no longer/never have been outstanding players or in bottom 4 clubs. But if you were in his position you would be annoy
  14. In my opinion I think the best way to avoid tanking for a priority pick is to issue them not on number of wins, but on percentage. A system where to get a priority pick the team has to have a % under 75 for two consecutive years. A team like us would rightfully get the priority pick, but a team such as West Coast with a much healthier percentage of around 86 would not get one, even if they only win 4 games. It is much harder to "tank your percentage" than "tank a game" in my opinion.
