G'day Boys.

It feels like flogging a dead horse at this point, but; Geelong's ruck situation. When the coaches insist on putting Blicavs in the ruck, with Hawk taking the forward ruck contests, where does this leave Stanley?
He had a poor game this week, but if he isn't marking the ball around the ground and playing a link up role, what's the point? The gap between his best and worst is too big, and the consistency just isn't there. I feel like when Blicavs takes the ruck that Stanley is a bit of a liability.

Cheers boys

Can we get a package deal with the geelong membership .... 11 home games and a pack of no dose?


Do you expect Chris Scott to change ..or do you expect the game to slip back to his version of Mogadon Football

I am not sold on the new stand-on-the-mark rules despite all and sundry singing its praises. It seems to discourage contested football and encourage shorter kicks, which leads to a basketball / netball-like game. I am not sure this was the intended purpose of the rule. It definitely doesn’t suit the cats slow controlled football. What are your thoughts?

Thank you so much Kingy, really appreciate the info re: Sav that you posted on our injury board!

Now I know it's a lot to ask, but given the likely number of people who are probably digging their claws into their armrests over the Cameron situation (I'm definitely one of them), any way you could find out what exactly is happening there, if he has re-tweaked his hammy, and how long it is until we see him?

Any info you and/or Benny could provide would be great moving forward, as we're all completely in the dark here - as are most supporters too I reckon.

Cheers again mate, and thanks for all you guys do :)

Hi guys,

Not a great outing by any stretch.

SDK has been working around wing/ruck in a kind of Blicavs development role. Stanley looks like he never got over the calf injury. Any chance SDK comes in for a debut and he can rotate with Blitz?

Danger, Rohan, Parfitt back against the Roos and a playing group that will want a solid rebound. How bad a injury would you fake if you were a shinboner?

Why did it take so long for brad close to get back in? He’s got clean hands and is a natural footballer. Is there a chance by the end of the season we might pick a 22 entirely made up of defenders? Odd choice having Narkle as an emergency having playing vfl but glad he got a run. We were clearly out pointed by Melbourne. Be nice for the coach to drop a ‘regular’ but most likely young blokes will miss out.

Hey Boys

Nathan Kreuger.... Do you ever think we will see "Freddie" Play for Geelong? Or will he be another Joel Hamiling?
What do you think of the idea of trying to convert him into a defender? As we already play 12 of them on game day... :seenoevil:
I can remember Troy Selwood was interviewed and they asked him " who is one player your looking forward to see play AFL? " and Kreuger was the player was named.
I'm just not sure why he hasn't been given a chance to play in the pass 2 weeks, as playing him forward would of free up Hawkins from being double tagged as we need to play 2 Key Forwards

Gday boys.
Is this it? Is this the cliff edge? It’s been predicted every bloody year for the last decade, is this the year we fall off the cliff? Suppose if you throw enough darts eventually one will hit the bullseye!
After watching Sunday and expecting a loss, this felt like a little bit more than just a loss, it felt like the changing of the guard. We look like a shadow of our former self and I’m afraid this feels like the train has departed and we’re stuck on the platform.
Mr Scott’s remarks last week about not having a great job have made me start thinking this attitude could infiltrate into whole football department. It may have been a fleeting comment but if he seriously is thinking it’s not a good job, it’s time to give it away.
There hasn’t been a management issue like this for a long time at the club but I’m hoping carefully consideration has been made with the new president and will continue being made with regards the employment of a new CEO and a possible senior coach. Interesting time ahead.

Gentlemen

The Cats have started 2-2 the last two seasons. Last year, Geelong were able to recover and reach the top 4. The club's prospects seem shakier this year: perilously close to a 0-4 start, inconsistent and the sluggish ball movement is a major worry.

My question is do you think a top 4 home-and-away finish is still a reasonable prospect?

P.S. Did it take Ben long to get nude after Hideki Matsuyama's win in the US Masters on Monday morning?

Gents..

1 - I highly recommend never leaving Heidi Klum for anything... especially the tripe we served up on the weekend.
2 - Has Benny been found? Is he ok and has the celebrations akin to the Hangover Parts 1, 2 and 3 abated? Massive win for the Cass household.

To the game -
Selwood is an out and out champion. To lead from the front as he did, trying to drag the team over the line was outstanding. The toll it takes must b epic on him. Cooper Stevens can't come soon enough - but we are lacking developing mids behind him. Selwood is not replaceable - but who do you see as the next MF coming thru? I think the cupboard is a little bare especially as Chook is on the outer... like Pluto style outer.

This week's Kerr's Hire Bonus Question:
To the future - Once Cookie leaves - whom or what type of person do we want/need in that role going forward? Should it be a GFC based footy person, someone outside the club but with footy acumen, or a rank outsider with a savvy business record but no footy ties?

And whom is the KROCK played for both guest this week... Leigh Tudor, Robert Scott, Leigh Colbert, Cam Mooney, Josh Walker, or Brad Scholl

Hey boys,
I will start by saying its early in the season and the Cats can definitely turn it around and play some great footy...........however.
Bruise free football for the first two and a half quarters.
Poor body language.
Not playing for each other.
Low energy and intensity.
(Speaking about intensity can someone tell Menengola he is on a football field, not eating an ice cream down at the beach)
With Chris Scott in his 11th year as head coach has the message started to fall on deaf ears?
Thanks.
