Aren't Hopper and Tom Green good young inside players? Taranto can run through there too? Toby Green could go on ball more often.
I'd go the complete opposite way. Melksham might come back into form now with this attacking kicking game. Not many better kicks inside 50 in the AFL than Melk. Imagine him with Ben Brown to kick toNo way I want Melksham back in this side right now. One of the major obvious things we needed last year was a couple of smaller forwards contributing much more than he was. First 2 rounds that's exactly what we've got with Spargo/Pickett/ANB all making good contributions.
The good thing about our first two wins are our bottom end players playing well which is exactly what you need. ANB looks a completely different player now he's not fumbling or missing tackles. Jones has been solid. Spargo is playing a role and is a nice user of the ball. Sparrow and Jordon stay in while they're playing like they have been.
No way we should rush others back just on past reputations.
Kelly is a bit of a myth that gets by on reputation, very much an icing on top type player. Great talent and would love to sit him on the wing, but not the player you could build a midfield around as he was once hyped up to be.I would carry him on my back like a baby monkey to bloody wherever you guys are based.
I don't really understand this post at all. But I'd take Kelly in a ******* heartbeat.Kelly is a bit of a myth that gets by on reputation, very much an icing on top type player.

I get where you're coming from but my counter argument would be that he also might NOT come back into form.I'd go the complete opposite way.

I'd piss off Sparrow first.I get where you're coming from but my counter argument would be that he also might NOT come back into form.
If at some point he's in outrageously good form in the magoos and Spargo and ANB revert to 2020 form then let's go with your idea.
Yeah maybe. I'm still dark on Melksham for being very bad up forward all last season and a total embarrassment when Goodwin got desperate and put him in the midfield. Needs to be made to earn his way back from that IMO.I'd piss off Sparrow first.
Spargo and AnB have been good. Sparrow was ok against the saints but isn't really playing a position
Massive play, resulted in Fritschs goal which steadied us after the Saints got within two goals, killed what momentum they had and we won it from there, he’s definitely playing a valuable role at the moment.Loved seeing him fend off Butler's tackle like he was nothing.
I don't think he's gone backwards as a player. In the first couple games, your midfield has been terrible, Kelly strives on being the last in the link up play, hitting targets inside 50. He hasn't been able to do that as you're playing like hot garbage.
Why tf would Jackson even be in selection consideration right now. His ability to go into the ruck is invaluable atm with reduced interchange, allows Gawn to rest forward and have a real impact. Also he missed a couple sitters against Freo, think he gave one off too. I think you'll find that when BBB and weed are back, that Tmac goes onto a wing, Fritsch pushes higher up the ground. Jacko, BBB and Weed up forward. We can afford to play these talls as Jacko and Weed are both very good below their knees for their height and our small forwards are currently playing really well, more than capable of filling a potential void of pressure once the talls come back.In - Hibberd & Melksham
Out - Jordan & Jetta
I would give Jackson until either or both of B Brown and Weideman are available. Hasn't offered much and his contesting in the air hasn't been up to standard.
Also add he hasn't kicked a goal which is something we need from a key forward.
