I (sort of) get why Mayne & Blair are still in the team, but I can't help but feel aggrieved by their selection.

Happy that Moore is back in and lining up as a forward and also happy that the hardness of Adams is back in the team.

As for Crocker being back in the team, meh....I don't really know what to think of his selection. I'm not convinced the kid is going to ultimately make it at AFL level just yet. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

Should Mayne & Blair's selections change how this match will play out? I'm fairly confident in saying no it shouldn't. They will hopefully do their roles, which isn't much chop to be fair, but the Pies should still be way too good for the Lions on current form exposure.

I think of it this way: Even if the Lions "get up" and play out of their skins, we should win this comfortably enough. Busy schedule or not.

If we don't, I would question whether we deserve finals or not.

I’m happy enough for them to be in the team, though I still don’t get Fasolo’s absence. But they’ll play a role and be replaced as soon as we get some others up and running.

True.
Sorry for suggesting we get more than 4 games out of a $2M player.
His first half last Sunday wasn't as insipid as it was predicted to be.
He didn't do much except give away a 50m penalty and then miss a regulation drop punt from 20m. Thought he should have kicked the goal to start to redeem himself

Thats a reasonable formline for a 0-6 side because they are sh*t.

I dont see any results there (apart from Port and the equally sh*t Suns) that say they were remotely competitive.

Their best player Zorko is averaging ten fewer possessions than last year.

If Collingwood with a list approaching its best and form as good as its been for a few seasons cant beat them then we are in for a year of pain.
So we watch with interest tomorrow. Of course the money is on a Pies win but the odds would be enticing on Brisbane.
