    I'm in your corner on this one, AFLX from what I read could have been designed to test out hamstrings and leg injuries.

    It's about mitigating the risk. Playing him in this stupid competition would be beyond stupid.

    Joel is in full training and his ankle is fine.

    Danger has had a sore back... not nearly as bad as you've suggested.

    You might be thinking of Scott who I think is having 8 weeks off cause of he's ankle. But that's just the way it's always going to be with him.
    I think Joel's is preety good now but I might be wrong.
    I've heard Danger had a really bad back for nearly all last year but just gets up and plays through it. He'll be sweet.

    Joel went off with a card, not with an ankle injury. He still looked a bit proppy - presumably carrying a bit of the injury from earlier in 17 but wouldn't be in full training now if he wasn't 100%.

    You're probably getting your Selwoods mixed up.

    "Gaz dominant as Cats ramp things up
    THOSE who thought Gary Ablett would not be the same player in his second stint at Geelong might be mistaken.
    Ablett was at his sensational best during a lengthy three-and-a-half-hour training session at Deakin University - with a major focus on match simulation – on Thursday.
    Wearing a white cap, and sporting his familiar hunched-over pose, Ablett, 33 found the ball with ease in the midfield and showed zero signs of the shoulder injury or the soft tissue injuries that plagued his last four seasons at Gold Coast."

    "Gaz dominant as Cats ramp things up
    With superstar Cat Patrick Dangerfield not participating in the full-ground match simulation, having nursed a sore back in recent weeks, Ablett’s delivery to his teammates - particularly going inside forward 50 - was first class.
    Dangerfield was limited to work with the rehab group initially, which included change of direction and speed-based training, before joining in some contact work when the Cats worked on their defensive structures towards the end of training.
    It is understood the Brownlow medallist is nearing a return to full training, with the Cats' medical staff being cautious with his body at this time of year."

    Thank you posting this video Boxhead, really enjoyed Crameri's interview. His enthusiasm is inspiring + his comments on Gaz were terrific. Seems everyone loves Gaz!

    In the video, Crameri is ear marked as high half forward 'the Jack' (Jack of All Trades), with his endurance, power running, resounding left foot, huge kick + strong hands, it sounds very exciting.

    In 2015 (yeah, a long time ago) Crameri said: "I enjoyed playing up on the ball and up higher on the wing. . ."

    Giansiracusa praised Crameri:
    "He’s a really hard match up for the opposition"
    "He really put defences on edge" with his pace + strength.
    ". . .he was really prominent for us, on the scoreboard but getting up on wings as well"

    Crameri started at Essendon as a midfielder, then Hird pushed him into their forward line.

    After two years away from footy, due to the Essendon saga + hip injury, let's hope he can return to his blistering form.

    Going to be an interesting season.

    "ABLETT HAS LOOKED “TWO CLASSES ABOVE” AT CATS
    Former Essendon captain Tim Watson has sent the league an ominous warning about Gary Ablett’s progression with Geelong, saying he is blitzing the training track.
    Ablett has made a fairytale return to the Cats, but doubts have risen about his effectiveness at the age of 33.
    According to people close to the club, though, there is nothing to worry about. In fact, the dual Brownlow Medallist is reportedly looking sensational.
    “My very good spy down Geelong way has told me that Gary Ablett has not only not lost anything, but he may be coming back to Geelong better than he has ever been before,” Watson told SEN Breakfast.
    “He said he looked not just one class above everybody else on the field, but two classes above everybody else on the field, and some very good players were playing down there yesterday.”
    Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield echoed those thoughts about Ablett earlier this week, while speaking to Fox Sports.
    “I think Gary’s footy will do the talking,” he said."

    Totally agree - Menegola's first Finals series?

    Hell, some of our veterans were atrocious in Finals!
    Much prefer Tomahawk running on the lead to mark + love him playing up the ground.

    Very pleased to have a left foot in our forward line - Crameri.

    DtC is highlighting Menegola’s relative lack of experience, not his age. Age doesn’t compensate game time.

    Looks like it’s picture day. A twinkle in Joel’s eye.
    What a setting with Wade and Bernie behind.
