    Thankfully GAJr + the MC heard you - didn't play.

    How about GAJr injury during preseason? How many melts?


    (I just touched wood three times to stop any jinxing lol)

    Thats what happens when we play a composite game ... one side says a shirt front and a forearm to the shoulder is a transgression ...meanwhile its OK to trip Danger and to jump into his back.. stupid concept ..whats the goal? ...to kill our own sport? I heard SEN this morning asking what was a better watch .. this game or the Soccerroos game..

    and that someone can get suspended for something in this game is insane. One may as well have suspensions for training.

    Might agree with you but your reply to my post about Motlop and his time with us makes no sense to me?

    I will have to back track to see what you mean...

    OK
    Not sure something a bit skewif about this website today... I was referencing your comment about Selwood not playing due to a probable week off due to him being black carded in the shamozle game...

    Will this game be a mammoth BF meet-up? The return of GAJr to Geelong, playing his first game?

    Team for the Round 1 hopefully no injuries before then:

    Bews Henderson Guthrie
    Stewart Taylor Tuohy
    Duncan Dangerfield Cockatoo
    Menzel Buzza Ablett
    Parfitt Hawkins Gregson
    Smith Selwood Selwood
    Kolo Thurlow Menegola McCarthy

    Obviously need Gregson and McCarthy to stay fit but they are the players we missed last season, Blicavs will be picked but I wouldn't pick him until he forced his way into the team. Like the run and match winners across the lines should give it a good run with a good injury run.

    Actually, I don't mind Cocky on the wing as we lack run and carry with Motlop gone.
    I would still like to see someone come through who can break the lines from defense like Wojcinski of old.

    Cocky in the forwards or bust

    He does not have the body or endurance to play anywhere else
