  1. Kind of like selection in a way, although agree Sparrow is the future and stiff. Would have been my preference (Maybe the Wied is stiff too.) But ex Tomlinson, the selection committee had just about the strongest list possible to pick from. How things have changed. We should win this, notwithstanding some good “ins”for the Swans . For my money Harmes and Melksham are very questionable selections and clearly accountable as is the selection committee. Not much room to hide here.
  2. It’s a raffle. Who knows how they will go. We do seem to have quite a number on the list 180cm or less. Not sure of the balance.
  3. Whoo! How about unbeatable one on one and arguably our best player for the last 50 years along with R.Flower?
  4. A complete favourite Uncle of Kozzy, friend of Petracca and Oliver. Hmmmm How is keeping Nev different from keeping Jones? l hope we can satisfy and keep a quality bloke like N.Jetra
  5. We used to have a desire for slow midgets. It seems our focus nowadays, is to fill up with moderate B grade midfielders, with little upside, on long contracts.
  6. Three years is excessive IMO. Probably should be on a year by year arrangement.
  7. Good stuff. Hope young Ollie and Trac eventually follow suit.
  8. Yy Ok so we have 5/6 absolute untouchables who have delivered. Happy with that and we should pay them very handsomely. If we don’t others will. If we lose any of them, it doesn’t do much for our brand, our supporters, the playing group and it tears the heart out of the club. This was always what we hoped for wasn’t it , to have a core of 1/2 dozen leaders that at least make us competitive and to be able to build further on that? Ex new recruits ,the rest of our playing group are under the spotlight as they simply haven’t delivered.
  9. Just a few things. Would you prefer to have Viney playing for you or against you, against say Brayshaw? I’ll be happy to take Jack. Onfield leadership is a number of things including being a General and when the game has to be won, standing up and making an impact. l reckon we have the right people in Max and Jack in leadership roles at the moment. On the basis of this year, other players who display these characteristics are May, Clarry and Trac. There are also others in Lever and Langdon maybe.
  10. Economics 1a would seem to be the decider of the appropriate price.
  11. Who knows how likely? Stuffed if l really know the extent of his injury, or future prospects. We do know he can play when right and he is contracted to us. Plenty to go before him l reckon. Don’t see the need to be hasty on this blokes departure on the back of his overall record. The ducks and drakes of football.
  12. So we match if none of those are on the table. With that sort of hand, let’s see how serious they are.
  13. Toms contracted. Let’s work on getting his foot right, or an extraordinary good deal. No one should get Tom cheap IMO.
