We're literally one of the youngest sides in the comp, and still winning games. Hamill, McPherson, Sholl, Butts, McHenry, Rowe, Berry, Schoenberg, Fogarty - all getting gamesSounds like Nicksy is taking his Don Pyke impersonation very seriously. I hope he realises Pyke got sacked in the end when he wouldn't play kids.
After comments like these it's no wonder our sanfl side got thumped today. What's the point in busting a gut. No coach should ever say they would never like to change a side. If that's true that's a disturbing thing to say and he needs someone higher up to have a chat with him.
Next week will be the test for the selectors if Frampton plays ordinarily tomorrow, today is the 1st time this year Himmelberg has looked anywhere near AFL standard this season, not dominant but competitive at least today.You know how governments, councils, businesses, whatever know about a certain risk but don't do anything about it until someone dies?
Kinda feel like this is the same logic being applied to Frampton. As long as we keep winning, keep things as they are.
Yep.Today is the perfect example of why Worrell should of been picked on form in the last week or two. Has a stinker today in a very very poor side so here we are having to start the whole cycle over again, build form in the SANFL, wait for an injury...
We can’t be waiting for the “perfect” opportunity to blood young talent, because there’s every chance that opportunity won’t present itself.

Thats how the Adelaide Football Club rolls. Absolute joke.We're coming into a really difficult period where we play a lot of finalists, and will be forced to make changes due to injury and form.
By not debuting kids in these easier matches, we'll need to bring in some players for their first games against the likes of West Coast, Port and Richmond
Mackay and injured Lynch both poor selections. Why we wouldn't just put Kelly on ice until he's right and debut the in form Worrell is typical of our club's selection philosophy.First poor selections this year, cannot believe they are still contemplating Kelly’s fitness on gameday. If he plays, guarantee Hately gets on in the first quarter.
Himm took some good marks.. didnt do much with the ball once he did though.. and still misses from 35m out straight in front. the lad is ordinary by foot.Next week will be the test for the selectors if Frampton plays ordinarily tomorrow, today is the 1st time this year Himmelberg has looked anywhere near AFL standard this season, not dominant but competitive at least today.
Murphy, McAdam and Rowe are doing better.Nah, tracking fine as a small pressure forward/mid, the polish will come with confidence.
See where you're coming from, but McHenry is IMO one of those types you just need to keep getting games into in order to develop confidence, especially after the injury troubles he's hadMurphy, McAdam and Rowe are doing better.
Murphy more up the ground/forward, Rowe and McAdam natural goal kickers.
Newchurch will be banging that small forward door down soon. Genuine, very quick leg speed and goal nous. We lack keg speed.
Hately needs to play. Especially with MCrouch out.

Reality is that he's 30 years old and it gets harder to carry injuries and perform as you get older. And that's before taking into account his weapon is ground coverage. But continuity demands he play.He still is, has clearly become the new whipping boy for this board with Atkins gone.
