No-one is saying otherwise. The point is that some people jump the gun and are too keen to write guys off before its reasonable to do so.
And some guys just don't make the cut. So let's just see who deserves it instead of using the amon reference. Id personally not give a game based on one good Maggie's performance, but if team balance and injuries warrant it then give Farrel a go. I want him to come good as much as anyone. I want all our players to come good.

I know it’s probably for the best we back him in but Marshall’s game was so bad on the weekend he’s gotta be on his last chance. For all the talk of him having a “good” year he’s averaging 9 disposals and a goal a game. That’s Darcy Fogarty territory. Into his fifth year now the excuses are running dry.

Marshall is bit of an enigma for me. He is averaging 11 disposals a game but his games against Eagles and Lions was putrid. Will be persisted with I think. Georgiadis is averaging the same number of disposals but 2 goals a game - different roles I think.

What is concerning right now, is none of our start of season 23 to 28 in line for selections have made a clear statement to cement themselves in our best 22. With all our perceived depth, I am waiting for one or more to take the bull by the horns before Butters and Duursma return. Aliir and Fantasia have added more but cancelled our by injuries and poor form from the likes of Hartlett, DBJ and Dixon.

Hartlett needs to be dropped. All I want to see these selections. Leinert replace. Marshall needs to start delivering very soon. He lacks physical presence and does not get enough of footy. Thin ice. Mayes never been a fan.

Marshall had back to back brilliant games right before the Lions game (which I haven't forced myself to watch yet... I will but I want us to earn a bit of respect and faith back this weekend then I'll probably watch both)

Marshall needs to inject himself early in big games. The horrible miss start of preliminary final and the fumbling v Brisbane shatters his confidence. If his first touch is sharp, he seemingly has impact throughout game. He is not alone though...

Expecting some pretty uninspired changes on the outs front. Ken won't change his ways now, so not expecting a senior player to be dropped.

In: Boak, Bonner
Out: Woodcock, Frederick
