I just hope this is finally the start of selection integrity using what many of us have been pointing out intelligence. Think the last two weeks have hit home inside the AFC given they've wheeled out almost everybody to spruik the company line. Some of the interviews have been pathetically stomach churning where you really have to question if anyone in the club lives in the real world.

We are not making a run at finals, so just pick players with the future in mind, who cares whether we win games right now. Look what those junk wins late last year did, cost us JHF who many on here are now prepared to offer two firsts to get out of Norf.

If we only win another one or two in the run home playing kids, we'll get better draft picks which is essential, Hell we may even draft kids with decent foot skills. The recent expose of how our foot skills rate was disturbing, but then again we see it every week, so we knew that without having to see the numbers proving it.

Do not want to see a number of coaches favourites again this year, and more with Gold Passes need to go as well.

I mean it's great Crouch is out and all, but we all know 2x 30 possession SANFL games max and he's back.
Don't think Crouch will get a quick recall this time .....after last dropping, behaviours didn't change

Brad always bombed the ball at the Crows .....2nd year at SAINTS, he's kicking lower and flatter balls

Crouch will be a better player at another club

No back up ruck is interesting, that said I like the team selected. Future has been prioritised.

Reckon the Hindenburg is a late in for Tex, will then do back up ruck too and Fog play more traditional FF.

Very glad Murphy has been omitted (again).

His career is in big trouble.

Surely we should be prioritising players with more upside in a rebuild over the honest triers. Any of Cook, Pedlar or Newchurch would be better options imo.

Liverpool, Glenelg,
Doesn't matter. If the new coach wants him gone, he's gone. They either put him up for trade, or he spends his year in the magoos.
he’d be on * all money..

new coach could simply pay him his remaining contract money and delist him..

should do the same with crouch.
