We had 14 players under 50 games last week. Compared to a side like Essendon we're running 6 months older, which is due to us playing 6 players with 150+ games experience compared to their 2. They're going with 13 players under 50 games, we're giving plenty of opportunities to younger players currently. You can argue for a guy like Worrell to play, but much like last year there will be a bunch of guys who get a go through the year, just cause it's not happening straight away doesn't mean the year is a write off development wise.True... but I have a right to be worried about our selection policy in rebuild mode missing opportunities to give games to our young talent.
ha ha ha. thanks, I needed that.Your evidence is my passing on of comments made to me about Nigel Smart? That's it? Hahahaha ok Sure. And since you don't seem all that smart - I passed on comments made to me about Smart. I said that I believed the person who said it. I didn't say it was fact.
ooooooohhhhh.This is information I have had confirmed. So, just a bit of a difference.
I've been on here since 2004, so yeh I think I have a long record.
It was 3, because there was 3 people who confirmed the story. One is a family member and two are from within the club.
Feel free to put me on ignore if you don't believe anything I have to tell you. More than happy for you to do it.
just funny that someone posts something so obviously made up as if they've got a big scoop.He can believe me or not. Doesn't seem like it needs an attack. Although it is interesting that the one and only issue he has is with comments made about Nigel Smart...
This is a really good point. One of the things that came out of watching "Making Their Mark" was the completely different messaging that went on internally and externally within the clubs. Coaches would always back the players publicly, with the external messaging. Internally, they were much more blunt and honest.So you are honestly happy with Frampton's form?
Do you really believe everything coaches say?
Coaches aren't necessarily satisfied - I don't know how they possibly could be, given that he was literally worse than useless last week.Like I said the coaches are obviously satisfied and unlike us they know his KPI's.
Meanwhile Himmelberg obviously hasn't met their KPI's.
You are literally saying that a 22 year old KPF's last 6 AFL games (out of a total of 19) were good, yet he is no good.Half a dozen games in how many years ?? He's no good.
Not saying Frampton is either, its clear he isnt. RT should be playing ahead of both of them.
Wrote him off before that TBH and whilst those games gave me hope, it appears hes reverted to type.You are literally saying that a 22 year old KPF's last 6 AFL games (out of a total of 19) were good, yet he is no good.
I'm not saying he'll be a good player, I'm just gobsmacked how anyone can write him off based on what he showed last year and given there is no evidence to go by this year at afl level.
Clearly something happened in the off season.
If we're talking about Lynch having an injured toe, the sub will be Fogarty.Berg as AFL sub ??
I'd be stunned if Frampton and he were swapped
It's unlikely that he's ever going to be the sub, given that the AFC (along with most of the other clubs) is seeing it as a development position, and continually selecting "emerging" youngsters in the role.If we're talking about Lynch having an injured toe, the sub will be Fogarty.
Whilst I'd rather Mackay in the SANFL than the best 22, it's quite irritating we're refusing to make him the permanent sub.
Based off 1 Sanfl game? I watched his pre season games and he was fine. If Frampton didn't have a good pre season I would have expected him to play round 1 instead of staying in the reserves.Wrote him off before that TBH and whilst those games gave me hope, it appears hes reverted to type.
His PS games were awful, and his game last week was equally so.Based off 1 Sanfl game? I watched his pre season games and he was fine. If Frampton didn't have a good pre season I would have expected him to play round 1 instead of staying in the reserves.
I don't know why you wouldn't at least give him some time in the reserves in a semi competitive team before writing him off.
