  1. I thought we could kick off GF week with a happy story that all can get behind and embrace. Sing songs together over a wonderful happening that we will get to enjoy soon... The demise of Geelong. For a few years at least... We have seen our rise built on the backs of top 40 ND picks that we have nailed, and avoided trading out where we could. Geelong on the other hand... Top 40 ND picks 2012 ND16 Thurlow 2013 ND16 Lang ND36 Jansen 2014 ND10 Cockatoo Trade ND21 Stanley 2015 Trade ND9 & ND28 Dangerfield Trade ND17* Henderson 2016 Trade ND15* Touhy ND26 Parfitt ND40 Stewart 2017 Trade ND19 & ND30* Ablett ND22 Fogarty ND24 Kelly ND36 Constable 2018 ND15 Clark 2019 ND16 Stephens ND19 De Konig Trade ND37 Jenkins 2020 Trade ND12 & ND15 & ND18 Cameron ND20 Holmes ND33 Neale *Future Pick Mature Age Trade Failed Pick/Player not at club Successful Pick The 4 kids inside the top 40 in the last two drafts have played 13 games, of which Holmes has played 12 - a perfectly fine defensive HBF (another way of saying he doesn't have any tricks). They lucked out with Stewart in 2016 and that is it, there have been a few role players like Miers, Henry, and Smith that they acquired later in the draft process or UFA. They potentially got a new start with Kelly going to WCE, but turned that 3 picks in the top 20 windfall into a lead up 'flanker' forward that needs a bigger bodied FF beside him to function. Their list is aging and has very little below to replace those that are to move on soon. They have epitomised the idea of constantly topping up and relying on your stars to win you big games - but when those stars retire... List? Meet Cliff.
  2. I'm the first to bag, condemn and vent my frustration. I did all of the above during the final term. I'll say something I've banged in about for the past 3 seasons, we've still got a Shiite midfield. If we can somehow land a consistent Colin Sylvia( Perhaps a pipe dream) or quickly develop a Joel or a Scooter Selwood (Please Please) , and the Viney's and Jimmy Toumpas' of the world quickly realise the potential they have, we may begin to get something to believe in. The KPP blocks are there , the midfield requires URGENT attention, there may , just may be life in this carcass.
