tZ may be a little on the repetitive side when it comes to his whipping boys.Mate, I've always had a bit more time for you than some other people have and I respect how you've held your own and stuck to your opinions through some flat out disgraceful personal abuse over the years, but on Scott you are just downright wrong. I think you've held onto this conception of him as a player since his junior days, when you regularly claimed we should let Geelong or the Suns have him, and you're maybe too stubborn to clearly confront the evidence of his performance in the AFL that's proved you wrong.
Fabulous situation for interested onlookers... Either way, we can't lose. TZb or SBG forced into a grovelling apology/humiliating climbdown. Grab the popcorn folks....Agree - but it will make the apology all the more sweeter to those of us who rate Bailey.
Of course if it turns out that tZ is right - I will put my hand up and do the walk of shame first.

Doubt he’ll be captain as Lmac , Jy then maybe LDU or even Phillips might be captain during his careerSaid it before and I'll say it again - Bailey Scott will be Captain one day. And anyone who thinks he won't see 200 games is just too distracted by the flashier players. Bailey is probably our most likely 200 gamer of all the youngsters we've got right now. And he'll do it like he does everything - quietly, dependably, intelligently, and with precision and durability across all skill sets - while everyone is paying more attention to the players who have more flare or bravado.
Not that I really know what a good old-fashioned footballer is, as I'm relatively new to the game, but he fits my idea of it. He's got timelessness about him, like Cunners does. Like you could put either one of them in a time machine and send them back a hundred years to play then, and they'd fit. Or send them forward a hundred years, and they'd fit.
Anyways, I love him. He's my new favourite player now that Jasper has gone. Bit of a shift, I know, but he's great, even with his non-flash hair.
100% Agree.I've been to training twice this pre-season for Friday scratch matches. Especially last week's game I was blown away by the quality of Bailey's football more than just about anybody else out on the park. He was in everything. One passage of play where he took the ball out of the back line with a precision pass down the wing, kept on linking up until he had a shot for goal from 50 that was touched on the line from memory.
To me he clearly stands out as a player with time and poise who makes the right decisions every time. When others are making mistakes he'll be the one cleaning up after them. He has precise foot skills, he can stick tackles, kick goals, take contested marks and clearly possesses close to elite endurance. Above all of this the kid clearly has heart and determination. There's a maturity about him which is very comforting in such a young team. I'm not saying he's going to be Isaac Smith or Nigel Lappin but he's someone I think we can be very confident will be a very good player for us, for many years to come.
Tz was not right about Macmillan. You don't get to be wrong in your called list changes some 150 weeks in a row and claim vindication when the 10 year player moves to the coaching panel.100% Agree.
This bloke is our Trent Cotchin, just does everything well, no fuss.
Cleaner than just about everyone on our list, and the one you’d want kicking a goal after the siren.
Tz was right about Gibson, MacMillan and Dumont. And wrong about Bonar and Scott. I also have time for the kids resilience, despite his incorrect stance on this particular player.
Pretty sure this year is his draft year? Although others will know for sure.How old is Darby?
Also, I am a big rap for Bailey. The only thing he needs in my eyes is more confidence/self belief he cant tear games apart. That with some physical development, we have ourselves a player.
Just because the coaches didn't drop him, doesn't mean he didn't deserve to be dropped.Tz was not right about Macmillan. You don't get to be wrong in your called list changes some 150 weeks in a row and claim vindication when the 10 year player moves to the coaching panel.
