    Silvagni looks a beauty.
    Has that effortless aura about his game. Only needs the body to fully develop and he'll really be a handful for anyone.
    Good size as well.

    14 goals for the season now.
    Not a bad start for the All Australian

    I usually always try and go for the underdogs.

    Half way through tonight's game I realized it was time to put sentiment aside and barrack for getting Thuoy for a 1 pick downgrade.

    Jimmy Bartel is now part of the Match Review Committee.

    I'm glad it's not Lingy, Jimmy is a fair unbiased commentator (who not so secretly loves the Cats).

    I wonder if they've popped out a daughter.
    You'd have to think she'd go allright.
    Unless there's some genetic anomaly that if the parents are just too good looking their kid comes out fugly.

    He does look good. Must be tricky being a parent and being the recruiter. But he looks completely worth it.

    They've actually got a number that look the goods and I can't even tell you their name.
    March bank and ploughman look good too. But they just aren't quite ready.

    They need some tall forwards. That was very telling last night. They had no bail out target.

    They need some pace around the ball to compliment Cripps which they will eventually get with the plethora of high picks they will have over the next couple of years.

    I will freely admit to loving watching Casboult play. It's like someone stuck a random number generator in a guernsey without any controls on the values it generates and just turned it loose.

    I love Casboult and wish we would get him. Have said it for ages.

    Depends on the price and for how long. He'd be an improvement on swinging Harry back and forth in the short term, but I'd be seriously hoping that at least one of our kids go past the living embodiment of chaos theory in the mext 2-3 years.

    Yeah I wouldn't be paying much for him at all. As a forward target though he's hard to beat.
    If it wasn't for the kicking.....

    It's a shame Murphy is captain because I'd actually trade him for a decent pick.
    He looks like a smooth mover, and he gets a fair bit of the ball.
    But I never feel like he wins the ball at crunch moments. And his kicking shits me to tears. Dinky little floating kicks and a lot of the time his target is risky.

    I actually think his kicks give the backman a chance to close in and get a fist to the ball.

    He's one of the most erratic shots at goal I've ever seen.
    He kicked well last night (made the goal umpire work with a shot directly in front and literally on the goal line) but next week he will kick 2.4 and it's been an ongoing problem throughout his career.
    In a final, a player like that can only get you so far before they ultimately hurt the team. Cameron Mooney became a problem after 2007. He was still better than not having him out there but the team would battle it's way through a 5 minute slog to finally get the ball forward and Mooney would kick a point.

    Bont - pushes off Lions player and its a great use of the body to protect the ball drop
    Hawkins - pushes off X player - free against...

    Funny how things go sometimes..

    Halftime advice for Dogs: rip off floppy jumper collar, kick ball through big posts.

    Could go down as the best Eric to ever play the game.:)

    Seriously, though, he does do some frighteningly impressive things out there already.
