    Interesting to read that Michael's injury was so serious he thought he might never be able to play again.

    In what way was that "unloading"? He said he was disappointed at the fact he was delisted and then said he liked how much more freedom he was getting in his new game plan.

    I assume the poster is talking about the freedom in relation to the offensive side of the game part. Unloading isn't what I would call it.

    Only media hacks like Zemplis, Barich or Hagdorn could see that as unloading on his old club. He didn't want to go obviously but was relishing the new opportunity at the Gold Coast under Rocket Eade.

    Interesting (don't read controversial) with the captain's votes for potential Brownlow in 2017:

    "Patrick Dangerfield (Geelong, five votes), Marcus Bontempelli (Western Bulldogs, two votes), Dan Hannebery (Sydney, two votes), Dustin Martin (Richmond, two votes), Lance Franklin (Sydney, one vote), Max Gawn (Melbourne, one vote), Luke Shuey (West Coast, one vote), Rory Sloane (Adelaide, one vote), Adam Treloar (Collingwood, one vote), Callan Ward (GWS, one vote), Jobe Watson (Essendon, one vote)"

    Not even 1 vote for Fyfe. He's coming back from injury so that's understandable but still has had a solid pre-season, destroyed the competition and stood out in the pre-season while seemingly in second gear, and has won it before so obviously in the umps field of view. So, a bit surprising for me when players like Ward and Watson are even attracting votes as predicted winners. Not fussed either way since we'll know the answer come the end of the year, but just a bit surprised, that's all.

    Was a very emotional read indeed - his reaction when he was cut was probably worse then I could imagine in my darkest hour. Was an absolute gun for us and not truly fully utilized - for whatever reason that was.

    Interesting comments about the freedom in Gold Coast's attacking plan as opposed to ours. Wonder how that will play out in reality though.

    Players who swap clubs talk shit. Mitchell reckons that WC'S culture and training is better than the Hawks and Vardy has also stated the same re Geelong. I have never heard of a transferred player knocking his new club. Delisted players have an axe to grind as well .

    I haven't read anything from Mick where he has claimed the club treated him unfairly or even badly.
    The worst I've seen is him saying he was pissed off that it happened and wanted to stay.

    For the purpose of the article it is - ie who the players think is the undisputed best player. That poll was probably just added on by the work experience guy before posting.

    It's still not. Not unless every player who voted had Danger #1.

    You've got to remember that Matt Priddis and Shane Woewoden both won Brownlows. Anything is possible. I'd rate Sloan easily as good as those two and arguably better.

    Sounds like the captains took it as seriously as when the players named the Lonie boys, "Toughest Player in the AFL ".

    As for the Coleman, how the flip can't Kennedy be the starting favourite ?.

    Unbelievable gut runner. Carrie the crows midfield almost single handedly last year.

    He missed 1 game and they got thumped.
