    Stiller,5th or 6th DT ranking for the Lions in the Round 1 game v Melbourne,can demand that !00th game on form in the reserves...it is up to him...and how quickly young players improve.

    Perhaps I over reacted to your comment LRL44.

    It's probably worth comparing Hart and Stiller at 99 games. I went back but I couldnt find any Big footy for the late 90's but I guess in 1995 Hart would have been seen as an ordinary footballer in a very ordinary side. Not saying that Stiller will go on to to achieve what Hart did but I still think the comparison at this stage of their careers is valid.

    As Lionheart182 "Every single week in the match day thread someone will bemoan the fact that one of our players doesn't try hard enough at some stage."

    Effort + talent = premierships

    Stiller hasn't been gifted anything. He has earned every single one of his games by going about footy the way he has. He is no world beater, but puts in and does what he can. The fact they we have no better options to bring in and replace him until now is the clubs fault, not his. Whilst i don't see him in our best 22 12-24 months from now, he has been a good player for us during our down time whilst we rebuild. I really hope he gets over 100 games, and gets his name on that locker, because his name deserves to be there.

    "Chaynee" Stiller was in the paper supporting the move to save the Shorncliffe Jetty. He talked about how, as a student at St Pat's Shorncliffe, the Jetty was a big part of his life when growing up.

    Really thought he'd be a good chance to come back in with Raines out.

    This might be the end for Cheynee.

    God I hope he doesn't get stuck on 99 games.

    Same. I get the feeling he may get a run later in the season though if we're not fighting for a finals spot (which is likely).

    If he was targeted for delistment at the end of the year (and I don't think that is a certainty), he'd surely get a swansong towards the end of the year when finals are out of the equation.

    Also, if delisted, I wouldn't mind seeing him rookied and made captain of the reserves. Good mentor for the younger guys.

    Every player under 196 cms on our list available for selection is not helping his cause atm but no doubt he will be plugging gaps later in the season.

    it's great that cheynee finally gets to play his 100th game,though his selection this week for me came from left field, there were others i thought in the mix more than him.
    nevertheless he has the opportunity to get the paint set & stencil out to etch his name permanently on his locker. well done.
    it would have been sad for the end of the season to come & cheynee still be stranded on 99, as i guess his place on the list next year is certainly not certain & open to discussion

    Congratulations Cheynee. Really love that number 32 locker! I hope you have a great game and give the selectors and list managers a real headache.

    Absolutely stoked for him. Deserves to have has name on the same locker as Shaun Hart. The number 32 locker is becoming synonymous with absolute pros who get the very best out of themselves.
