    If Kelly dodges the bullet, Schroder would be the logical omission for Corey or Chapman.
    But he did enough this week to maintain his spot ahead of Caddy. Nothing has changed since that decision was made last week after they played together in the 2nds.

    No as far fetched as it sounds we have them at home.

    Its just that GFC rate Caddy - otherwise they would never have traded for him what they did. Given that GFC need to get games into him and back their judgement - especially while there are so many injuries exist and give him opportunities. Fair enough to reward Schroder or any player if form in VFL demands it.

    I think the Shroder will be spared due to the suspension of Kelly.
    Kel is not Buddy. He won't get away with it.

    Dare I say Pies look like us in 2010. A little slower but skilled. They have some decent smaller types playing through but need to get more games into them. Just saying I know how that feels....

    Now if they could just lose their best player to an expansion side.....

    Still, will be bloody hard game and they will be up for it. Pies hate losing.... especially to us and after their fade outs of late im sure they will want to prove a point....

    Big game...

    Ball and Dids back perhaps short on match fitness could hurt them...

    Collingwood will be treating this as do or die for their top 4 chances so we should be expecting them at their best.

    Beams killed us last year so I'm glad he won't be around next week. Ball probably needs another week in the VFL. Lynch seemed to injure his leg in the dying minutes of the game last night and would be a big loss for them - he's their back up key forward and ruck.

    Based purely on form we should win but that doesn't count for anything once the game starts. A win would likely see us move to 11-0 with three very winnable games to follow.

    Any word on the availability of Chapman and Corey?

    ur pretty fast MD but I finally got ya...

    Hypen out would be a surprise.

    I couldn't see a surprise out like Jimmy or Stokes or something for a rotation yet. CS indicated that if a younger player makes it into the 22 and performs ( which I will take CS saying they looked at home out there that they did) then maybe Chappy for Poodle and Smithy for Kel if he goes.

    I wasn't having a go at him/her, I was joking about what I thought was his/her joke.
    So please don't take it the wrong way Torin :D
    And is it him or her, by the way?

    Should give up on trying to predict the team because there is always somebody "rotated" that you havent heard mentioned in despatches all week. e.g. Corey this week, Hawkins last week. But i will have a go anyway.

    In : Chapman Corey Caddy
    Out : Kelly (certain to get 2 weeks) T Hunt Christensen (my tip to have a rest)

    The avatar had me thinking Torin may be a young lady.

    Edit: Torin seems to be a boys name:

    Torin \t(o)-rin\ as a boy's name is pronounced TOR-en. It is of Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Torin is "chief". Contemporary use of Torin and its variants probably are based on Torrance and Dorian.

    Torin may want to introduce himself in the introductions thread here: http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threa...uce-yourself-here.990820/page-6#post-28132215

    No way will Hawkins be rested this week - he will get a good rest come GWS, GC and the bye - basically a month off for him.

    Yes, it was the avatar that made me ask, but no doubt he/she will let us know.

    I think we should win this but I'm never that confident about playing the Pies. Is Chapman definitely back this week?

    Going to be a good day on Saturday. Our VFL side play their VFL side in the afternoon, and the seniors play that night.

    Guess we'll see who has the most depth this week. My gut feeling says we'll win both games comfortably.
