Sadly this has become a stamp of complaint for many supporters.

Atley has been decent this season, when you accept he is a role player and not a gun regardless of how fast he can run.

Atley also suffers from being a 1st rounder in a compromised draft, he’d be equivalent to a late 2nd or 3rd rounder in a normal draft.
A role player coming from there doesn’t seem so bad.

There's not many amongst the following 61 players drafted after him in 2010 that I would choose.

Isaac Smith, Luke Parker & Jeremy Howe, and that's about it.

He's a solid reliable player.

Add to it, doesn’t get injured.. rarely gets beaten one on one.
People are angry cause he’s not a superstar.

People are just.................angry...........

It's ultimately the administrations who must shoulder most of any blame, but they manage to skate by relatively untouched whilst supporters "micro" manage criticisms via hand picked players.

Just not sure what is achieved by leaving Brown out of the team. He can't have a run in the magoos so how does he find form. Winning is irrelevant to the club now that finals are well gone. Let him find his form in the ones.

Maybe a week off will do him good. Refresh him a bit. Mentally moreso than anything.

Let him mentally refresh and spend some time with the mrs in a tough time. Him playing 3 games in a week would be pointless.

An injection of excitement in a horrendous season by inserting Maj, that’s what is achieved.

The Crows see our Polec dropping then raise us a Walker out ill - we still have time to raise the stakes with a Taz out...do it with an hour to go so they cant match us...
I say we go all out by going all in... Or should that be all in by going all out!?

I dunno, but the games not far away from starting, so it's time for a drink:
