Obviously not, otherwise the selectors would have dropped them. We’ve been over this all week, while they’re doing what the coaches, not us, the coaches want them to do they won’t get dropped.
Agree, Rioli, Aarts and Castagna kicked 6 goals between them in RD 1, good to see all our smalls hit the scoreboard.

Caddy isn't the quickest and I'm still not sure of his on going position on the wing but geez he makes up for it with his smarts, good ball user.
Overall he had 17 disposals and kicked a goal last week. Would love to see him back playing HFF, strong overhead and a dead-eye dick for goal.

Guess he and Pickett will be fighting over that wing spot as Macca seems to have tied up the other wing.

I don’t give a sh*t about what was discussed during the week. If you can’t handle differing opinions, don’t read public forums.

Not gonna get too annoyed seeing it is round 2 and we just won a flag 2 games ago but we really need to start getting more games into younger players.
If we don't we could easily fall off that cliff a lot sooner than people think..

Dimma and the selection committee are pretty good with getting the kids playing. We’ll most probably have injuries, unfortunately, this year, so the kids will definitely get their shot.

I agree with that feel for Ross , but they got to earn to with hard work not throwing in for the sake of it.

By the same token, it's ok for people to dissagree with you. I wouldn't call that not being able to handle it. We all love the Tigers but it's ok to have differences on players, tactics and footy philosophy. We've discussed many times here being able to agree to dissagree.

I was a bit rude to him when replying to his original post, I probably could have worded it better.

Like everyone else I want to see games put into the kids. But that's what North and Freo and Adelaide etc are reduced to doing. We have project players, long shots and rookies who have evolved into guns in Balta, Bolton, Short, Baker and essential roleplayers who oppos call spuds but help us keep our shape and play our style to the max. Those role players are arguably best 22 for us.

So, 22 games is a long season. At a premiership club the kids are going to either have to bide their time, force their way into the side or be ready to go when called up due to injury or form.

This is not news, it's been the same way for a hundred years. Old Tiger fans like me have learned to be patient. The kids will get their chance. Character building stuff.

Fair enough but I did want to make the point that we can have differing opinions without snapping at each other. Online we don't see each other's facial expressions, don't hear the tone that things are said and often we assume someone is having a crack at us when really we just see the same thing differently or someone is just making a jibe.

Maybe I'm saying this to remind myself of it too 😂 lol
