    Players are judged on their final's performances. They are at their best when the pressure is on and the result really matters. Wellingham did OK in our GF win. He made a name for himself in WC's win last week. He is not flakey when it matters. In the end, that is all that will matter. Now get off his back.

    Having a decent dip on Hawfs >15.5 but Wellers will be one of my Normie bets.

    Get off his back? Aren't you the one who continually goes on about everyone having the right to express their opinion? He had two shit years at West Coast where he was recruited to play as a midfielder. He didn't just stagnate he went backwards in those two years. This year he has improved but it took a move to the back line to do so. He seems to only perform well when the side is travelling well. That seems a bit flakey to me.

    You could be pretty close. Rumour has it NB will be coming out of retirement but not to GWS. Saints are front runners with Roos and their soft tissue management experience a close second

    I think he's got one more year on his coaching contract at collingwood so I don't think he'll come out of retirement next year.

    You can do almost nothing during the H&A season provided you play well in the finals when it counts. So far in his career Wellingham has a good final's record. We will see how his form survives the heat of a pivotal GF defence post. I am going to back him in to play well against the Hawks.

    You can get on his back all you like. I reserve the right to tell you get off it. It's called discussion. :):p

    So basically you are saying that Bucks got rid of Wellingham because he was taking drugs?

    His opinion was that you should get off his back. Your opinion was that he was being hypocritical by expressing this opinion because he also happens to believe that everyone has the right to express an opinion. lol BF at it's finest!

    Hate to break it to you dude but the godfather of soul is dead. Happened about a decade ago.

    Unless you meant from purgatory or hell?

    I have a friend who has a James Brown doll that sings and moves when you press a button, or something. Trev, my mate, is a James Brown fan.

    When James Brown died, Trev said to his eldest, 17 yr old son, 'James Brown is dead!'

    His son Viv replied, 'It's probably just the batteries, dad!'

    True story.

    Are you saying we could have kept Wellingham? And I have dumbly believed that he genuinely wanted to return to Perth! Another head severed by our beloved Oliver Cromwell incarnation, Nathan Buckley!

    There may be more heads yet to roll because of some new puritanical purge. We are the closest thing in the AFL to the Taliban.

    Failure is not only demeaning, it's boring. Success guarantees better calibre posters, with real thoughts and informed opinions, their PC positivity blazing like neon lights. Failure attracts the more abhorrent, creepy-crawly types who send shudders up the cyber-spines of anti-troll freaks and paid club apologists. Consequently, in times like this, those of us still filling up threads are the refuse, the flotsam and jetsam bobbing in the wake of a season of broken dreams and lost games.
