    Redpath doesn't take many pack contested marks whereas Cloke does have that ability.

    In saying that I think Redpath's ability to lead inside F50 and hit the scoreboard will be more valuable than Clokes two-three contested marks per game.

    If it was Cloke Vs Redpath - I'd go Redpath.

    However it may take him awhile to get his touch back after the ACL so who knows when we'll see him in the seniors again.

    I though Clokes field kicking has been real good. Think his a real weapon 40m-90m from goal range while Boyd/Redpath would be your 0m-50m forward.

    I suppose it's a good thing that him being out doesn't hurt as much it would compared to other teams. We aren't reliant on many

    Cloke's been great.

    ****s me off that we'll be missing him for half the season because of Ziebell's cowardice.

    He's been ok, hardly great.

    Only good game his really had was against Sydney. I'd take Redpath over him any day, better leader to the ball imo.

    In round 1, Cloke kicked 1, and set up 3 others, last week he kicked 1 and set up 3 others. People need to watch the games better!

    Redpath can't do that?

    He hasn't been great, he's been adequate, ok.

    Redpath can't mark over his head, can't move laterally and doesn't provide anywhere near the structural value.

    Love the bloke as a backup and a clubman but Cloke buys and sells him.

    It's not just about kicking goal. Example is everyone bagging Tom Boyd early on, but he brings the ball to ground, problem is, we don't have any decent roving forwards like Rioli or Betts. Dahlhaus is good, but is in the midfield a lot. It would be great to get Dicko back soon! Wally too!

    Tom Boyd is a kid and is still developing, he makes second efforts and that's what he needs to do at this stage.
    Cloke is 30 now? Can't really compare the two, I was expecting two a game on average from him.

    A genuine reliable goalkicker like Dickson is needed asap.

    I reckoned smith will be much better for the run.

    I thin they are different players. In a final, I think I would stick with Cloke. You can't buy experience.

    I'll never forget the goal he kicked against them last year. Burst through multiple tackles and snapped straight through the middle from 40 out and ran away from THREE lions laying on the ground that failed to lay the tackle

    I remember standing up and shouting "just get out of his way!"...it would have been less embarrassing for them.

    Yeah he'll probably fire but I'd be happy enough for him to do nothing all year as long as he puts in finals games like last year!!

    He's certainly due.
    Last time he kicked 4 in a match was R 16 last year. Last time he kicked 5 was Rd 8.

    Going to be the first senior game I get to attend in years (all my money in previous years was going to uni or bills...). Hope we smash them :D

    If anyone sees a bloke with an old robo dog hat on, a leather jacket and is around 20ish it is probably me.

    That robot dog hat is still my favourite. Simple, identifiable and not " too much finessing " which suits the fabric of our club.
