Rosey burnt me big time last year. Please complete the following sentence....don't pick Rozee because [blank]. Can't believe I'm tempted again. Wasn't last year punishment enough?? Or is a fit Rozee no longer a Rosey?

Added Ridley and Simpkin. Any others I'm missing?



Looking at the list, none bar Petracca were must-haves. Yes several guys did well, but most of them had form spikes. Some started poorly and then went nuts (Andrew Brayshaw, Walsh), others started well and then dropped off (Simpkin, Ridley, Doch, Viney). So with that, I'm happy to try a GnR approach this season, as long as the rookies are there
Several people were talking up Bailey Smith (415k) this time last year if I recall correctly.

Fortunately for those tempted by him his foot is still apparently f’ed, so he won't play all 22 games.

When is Gus back? Him and Viney will push Jordan out of the team and Harmes back to the vege section with the other potatoes.
I don't think Gus is ever getting CBA's and playing that pure contested on-ball role every again. I reckon with his concussion history, they will protect him. Wing/forward or nothing if he wants a career.

Sucks to be Melbourne then cause he's a gun on-baller imo (much better than Viney) and a bit sh*t everywhere else

If they wanted to "protect him" they would have done it last year since he had a concussion history last year too. They didn't do that and Gus recorded a career high 59% CBAs only marginally behind Tracc. I believe that 59% was significantly up from the year before IIRC. If Gus loses his centre square time this year it will be because they want to play Harmes as the #4 Mid instead as they did in 2019 when Gus was pushed out to the wing for the same player. I don't believe that will happen though, since there will be fewer bench rotations and Dees lacked a #5 mid in the rotations last year. So Harmes to play 50/50 Mid/HF

On the lower interchanges, doesnt it just mean that players’ stints are longer on the bench, rather than is changing the amount of time on the bench?
