    To the extent that I think I understand your question, the post I responded to was made immediately following last night’s game so was in response to that. Our most significant issue lately has been the ability of our on ballers and utilities to get back in numbers to assist the defence which has led to us turning the ball over across half back. Let’s call it the Hannebery Factor.

    Robbo did get back last night and played an important role in releasing the ball to runners out of defence. To say that Robinson doesn’t belong on an AFL list based on last night is simply ignorant.

    So he is suggesting he is an idiot then. Ok. Carry On. Having said that he is no orphan on this board.

    Of all the adjectives listed, "idiotic" didn't feature.

    The word I used was "ignorant". In this context I meant "ignorant".

    theres 22 games of evidence that he cant get many touches or impact a game of afl and 17 other teams not wanting him when he requested a trade, but time will tell I guess.

    Handy Fringe

    Last line spot on. Is extremely unlikely to be part of any premiership side but he is handy in that he will do an OK job for us when we require him.

    You have to take the good with the bad with him. Does not win a lot of the ball to impact a game but when he does win it it's usually hard ball and does not cough it up without a fight. Also can hold a tackle. Something that has been missing and one factor in our list of ordinary performances this year.

    Right on the edge a few performances late in the season may of saved him.

    I am by no means a fan, but I think he's exactly what the club needs to keep on the list, a player who can just come in and know what to do and isn't going to be a deer in headlights.

    Requested a trade last year. Is out of contract this year. Won't be on our list next year.

    I’ve done a flip on Robbo

    I’d give him a contract

    Think he will prove u wrong. Good finish to the season and one of very few to walk off the field in that diabolical final with an ok performance. He will kick on next year with Dawson, imo. Could be a solid replacement for Smith with more versatility.

    He certainly is a better kick. Agree with Mr The King that his last few games may have earned him another year.

    He did some good shutdown jobs in the last month. Will probably never be in first 22 but can play multiple positions so is handy to have on our list.

    I've always bracketed him with Dean Towers in my mental category of 'fringe player who occasionally does good.' They have exactly the same stats - average of 12 disposals, 3 marks, 2.5 tackles. Towers has to go because of his age and because you can only have so many 'depth players'.

    He wasn’t good, he was overrated in poor performances. That game on Whitfield was a furphy as it was a combined effort and Whitfield went quiet purely because he’s a front runner. He’s an absolute goer, I’ll give him that though! If he can snatch a spot on the list, good luck to him but it’ll only be a year by year gig in my opinion.

    Isn't really worth all the offense that some people take when he gets named in the side.

    Shit player, but he improved this year. His disposal was much better. Still not worth having on our list.
