Is Cripps big enough a fish to make a ‘statement’?

Not really anybody else in the gun that isn’t an established fringe player I guess.

No Eagles reserves this week also :(

Seen enough of Jones and Langdon, absolute spuds along with Ah Chee we've really got some depth issues. We really need to double down in this years draft, make some tough calls like trading Gov and Gaff to get some young proper top 10 talent on our list. Both of those players are replaceable, Gov especially.

As should have been vs Collingwood after the St Kilda debacle, the coaching staff need to make the decision between kind of throwing 1 game vs the longer term greater good. Gaff out for someone not ready will not benefit the team next week, but what it will do is filter through the team anyone can be dropped if not performing.

Out - Gaff, McGovern, Cripps (inj), Langdon
In - Kennedy, Hurn, Trew, Petrecelli available? If not Cameron available?

How's Cameron tracking lately? he's not on the injury list? unfortantley he can't be thrown in next week as much as I think he's probably the best crumber we have available.

We could just use the top 10 pick we are going to get anyway couldn’t we?

Dropping Sheed would be a statement. Rubbish for 2 weeks.
At least he can kick goals....three last week

Nicnat on the otherhand does f**k all does the tap and then either goes to the the bench or runs around the ground like a headless chook ..he can not mark and cannot kick goals...so what is he good for ???

He had 7 clearances on top of his tap work. He had more disposals than Dom did.
