    Player Watch #32 James Bell - he tolls for thee

    Oh here we ******* go. I love ABBA. But that’s just going to confuse the daylights out of the pigeon holers!

    Deccas come on mate. It was a triple whammy. Pretty difficult not to infer a race element in your post.

    Maybe the time 12 months ago when he had to delete all of his social media accounts? 🙄

    It’s a bit weird because I think Bell should be retained and I also think Clarko has been done wrong by the media. I just don’t know where I fit in. 🤷‍♂️

    I never forgot that and was unwavering in my support of Reid. I was right. I wanted Clarke delisted. I was wrong. Opinions are fine. Analysis and criticism is also fine. Sometimes though I think the criticism goes beyond what’s reasonable and becomes unjustified and cruel online bullying.

    James Bell 23yo. Ryan Clarke 25yo. By the Clarke measurement, we should give him a 2 year contract. Ask also this. Bell is a Blood because Goodes got in his ear. Who’s to say Bell doesn’t have a similar effect. He certainly looks to be an engaging popular type of kid. Every club has to have...

    I don’t think the criticism of Bell is racist. But it does tend to go beyond the constructive. You’d think the seasons of Reid and Clarke (and Fox) this year, a year we made the Grand Final would give cause for people to be more cautious about writing players off. Especially Academy graduates.

    Pity about Barry O'Connor. I had high hopes for him.

    Buddy won’t be playing reserves except in circumstances where he might be coming back after an extended injury break.

    List Mgmt. 2022 Draft and Trade Hypotheticals

    I remember a time not so long ago I used to get ridiculed for pointing out Reid's importance to us structurally as a key forward particularly his ability to effect contests in favour of our small forwards.

    I wanted to write something like that, but Hawkins two goals were entirely on our defenders.

    Autopsy 2022 Grand Final

    I encourage everyone to vote a certain ex Blood who cheated on his missus when it got difficult.

    Analysis The Way Forward

    The discussion is headed this way so I thought I’d open the batting. 1. Ruck. As an old midfielder, this is just so important. Presuming there’s no secret Grundy play we need to extend Naismith. He’s easily the best tap ruckman on our list and the fact that we’re in the mix says it’s a risk...
