Yep agree

CHB to allow Rampe to rebound and Aliir to float

Get Rampe to 16 defend of possible

If not **** off

Punts Reid can't play centre half back Mate. He has no ******* presence. He looks good in defence at times because he has no ******* opponent, he is 6 ft 6 and no matter how good opposition teams are they will almost every time find a beacon like that if they put the ball in the air. He plays one on one on a decent forward and he would be more ******* embarrassing than he is as a forward presently. He is a laughing stock. Having said that so are we as a club for ******* extending him.

Why not give him a go at CHB, and I don't mean play loose down there. Actually play him CHB. Release Rampe/Allir and let him be more of a rebounder, or allow Lloyd to play further up the ground.
He just averages a goal a game, he's clearly not going to ever become a 35+ goal a season forward. So we have to try something else, since for some reason we keep deciding to offer him long term deals and seems to be immune from being dropped to the NEAFL. One of a few of these struggling players that needs a role change, but for some reason doesn't get one.
Agreed. Means HellIcant goes back to suburban footy

Menzel is twice as good as Reid and was a fringe player at Geelong.
So that makes Reid a VFL player at best.

Seriously, the only reason people keep throwing money and contracts at Reid is the size and look of his physique.

It is all based on superficial appearance.

Same goes for Kurt Tippett.
