    I love watching Waite play.....I love watching Garner play. I wasnt excited that much last weekend as I didnt think we would win but I am extremely hyped up for this weeks game.

    We should be $1.01 favorites!

    Haven't lost to Melbourne in 3900+ days
    Waite is playing
    The game is in Victoria

    Statistically we are 99.9927% certain to win

    You guys shouldn't be too cocky. This is an even money game and the Dees have not been in a better position to end the streak since it began.

    Thanks. That's convinced me. Now I know for a fact we are destined to lose.

    Seriously if our mids get smashed this week - the overhaul needs to be done.
    With goldy giving us first use - our forwards should be licking their lips - hopefully ziebs is played fwd and we get better inside 50s

    Garner / Waite to rip it up

    Dees have won clearances despite losing the hitouts in the past three weeks and have a good tough midfield. We're going to have our work cut out for us.

    Goldy averaging about 20 less hitouts compared to his AA year... Even Zac Smith and Paddy Ryder are averaging 5-6 more hitouts a game this season.

    Yep.

    Great Mids>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Ruck

    EDIT:

    - Unless Corza type ruck in prime
    - Not even sure we can call Goldy 'great' anymore.

    Tend to agree. My preference is to always talk down our chances even though Im quietly confident then join in the post win euphoria like there was never any doubt.

    Down on form but neither of those guys shared the load with an actual ruck in almost half their games for the season, unless you count Stanley and Blicavs which I don't because they're VFL standard.

    Our mids have had some good games but have been inconsistent as a group (including Goldy in that.)

    After being smashed last week by a strong experienced unit they need to make a statement and impose themselves (physically and mentally) on the relatively inexperienced Dees midfield. That needs to start with JZ and BC going hard from the first bounce.

    If we get bullied again this week in the midfield then yes some serious questions need to be asked about what we are doing in there.

    Down on form for 1.5 years?

    Hasnt come close to 2015 and one wonders whether he ever gets there again.

    Stanley and Blicavs are still averaging 26 hitouts a game between them and Trengrove nearly 8

    He's about 70% of the player he was two years ago, agreed. With regards to hit out numbers I think he's played a considerable amount of time forward compared to Ryder and Smith. He's third in our goal kicking for a reason.

    Hes 3rd in goal kicking with 8 goals, thats 1 goal a game or a bit over as i think he has played 7? Preuss was averaging a goal a game as well.

    As it stands, Goldy is worth about half his salary imho and needs to consistently lift...
