Kelly is a good example of why Cripps would cost too much. It’s not worth selling the farm for these highly exposed west aussies. I’m happy to get younguns if they turn in to serong
Cripps is a bit different in that he is by far the best of a pretty shitty midfield whereas Kelly suffered from a case of Des Headland by being good in a star-studded midfield.

100%. Menegola has stepped back into his spot and is even better.

I had a peak at the West Coast board and my biggest take away was that Petrucelle played tonight apparently :openmouth:

I watched the whole game and didn’t see him once. Nice yoof they have coming through there

Reading through their autopsy thread, I am pissing myself laughing at how many are saying Jetta should have played instead of *insert player here* because they did nothing. Ummm..... have they seen Jetta play lately? He is the definition of front running hack that goes invisible when they aren't belting the opposition.

I mean that beats Petrucelle who’s a front running hack that goes invisible

Problem is that’s half of the team. You go with them one on one, they’re suspect. Look at their team: Petrucelle, Duggan (who was pretty good tonight), Waterman, Ah Chee, Cripps. It’s a meh group. Just an elite coaching group and game plan

It must be noted, Jetta does have 2 flags

I don't even think it is an elite gameplan. On the face of it, it does seem pretty simple. It relies heavily on the opposition kicking in long and McGovern and Barras intercepting and countering from half-back, or Nic Nat winning the tap and getting the clearance. Tonight showed just how middle of the road they are against a decent team when the ball is in general play around the ground.

Case in point. Think Ross mentioned along the lines of you can have the Best five players of the league in a team, it’s the bottom 5 that loses games.
Honestly wtf is Petrucelle even doing?
