I don't really like singling out players, but Motlop shouldn't play again for the rest of the year really. 3rd week in a row he's been a liability, 4th game in a row he's had zero positive impact out there. You can't carry senior blokes who are sitting on 2 or 3 touches at half time like he's done on a regular basis now.

Yep, They drop Joel Garner after a bloody good first game.

Why was he even brought back? He was s**t in the SANFL as well.

Yea agree Motlop has to go out, but wouldn't call him a no hoper, down hill skiier yes.

Think he is absolutely suffering having having absolutely lost all faith in his coach and game plan.

Hinkley, Voss, Davies Need to go. Koch needs to go, KT needs to go. From what we've seen this year Jonas and Wines need to hand in the captaincy but there really isn't anyone close to deserving it.

Give it Hartlett or Rocky.

I believe if we had Clarkson as a coach, we would all be very surprised with our current squad and what they could have acheived. Wonder if Clarko will move Wingard on, I doubt it very much.
So in order to go.
Koch
Ken
Voss
Bassett and throw in KT for good luck.
I don't think we'd be that "surprised". The common consensus is that we have had a quality list for a few years now bar the coaching.

Travis Boak, 10 games into the season, is so far ahead in the total turnovers stat that he cannot be caught. He might even be on track to smash the AFL record for turnovers in a season. So theres something to think about.

He's been great in so many ways for us, but his ball use can be really pathetic sometimes. Burns the ball far to much.

If we'd had Clarko we would have won a flag in the last 5 years
