Jesus. You are massively over rating the quality of our list if you don't think a healthy Sloane is a best 22 player.

When was the last time we saw a healthy Sloane?

A healthy Sloane is not a real possibility. He is always going to play with niggles.

1 more year is fine. There isn't much use for Sloane's current football ability though. It would be tragic to see him given any more than 30% mid time. Give it to Keays in 2023.

In truth - we don't need an inspiring pick for Captain this year.

We are a very young side that's rebuilding a piss poor culture. Let the lovable Sloane deal with all the additional media and responsibilities that come with being captain. Let the young players focus on their footy.
Trouble is he doesn’t do that.
He hardly ever does media these days.
He’s been missing in the pressers for years

Concerning when Crouch is back.

We need Schoenberg, Berry and Pedler to be in the middle more.

Would love to see Sloane as a permanent forward (I reckon he could do well there), but know that won't happen.

Sloane doesn’t deal with the additional media work, he shied away from it, Tex picked up the slack and Doedee relishes it

I'd back Sloane for 30--35 goals next season if played forward.

They rotate the media obligations fairly heavily, nothing at all to do with Sloane.

You’d think a captain would do the majority yet it seems to be Tex laird smith that does them.
I went through the numbers in 2020.

Sloane did the most press conferences for us and then we had like a dozen players who sat just below him on numbers. They like to rotate a large number of players through these things.

Laird, Smith, Doedee, Seedsman do a lot of our pressers.

I'm interested in seeing the numbers.

Do they include afc.com.au feel good stories or actual press conferences?

The exact opposite of our midfield strategy.
