    I knew I would lose many with that comment, but he did have a couple of 5 goal games and I believe better games than Moore's one against the Dogs in his first year. I love Darcy Moore and what he could become. I just don't think that he's consistently done enough to be an automatic inclusion unless there is an obvious hole for him to fill. Off the back of an interrupted preseason and very little experience playing defence against men, I don't reckon he has done enough to push into and potentially disrupt our defence, which is looking really good at the moment. I'd also like to see Cox given a couple more games up forward. Reid been good and shouldn't even be under discussion. And frankly, I reckon Moore would benefit from a couple of games in the VFL.

    If Moore can stay fit, he can be one of our best recruits.

    Think he is special and must find a position for him as I consider him best 22. That's all.

    He was dynamic playing back against the Hawks. He used his pace and athleticism to get to countless contests and spoil and other than the one botched marking attempt he set up some excellent attacks from deep in defense.

    There were 2 dropped marks and a couple of out of bounds on the fulls. That'd be enough to have effigies of Langdon burnt. :blush: I agree that he looked promising in defence, but don't think he performed at a higher standard than the blokes doing his role at the moment.

    I'd rather have Moore lining up on the likes of Jack Reiwoldt, Tom Lynch and Buddy Franklin than Shaz or Langdon.

    I'm not talking about keeping him in the VFL long term. I'm just suggesting bringing him back through the VFL. I reckon he'll be a world beater one day, but also think that he could get there quicker if he does some beating of the VFL world in order to give him the belief.

    I also think it sends a good message to the group if blokes in the seniors who are doing their job don't have to immediately make way when a bigger name gets fit, particularly when that bigger name is big based on his incredible potential, but not on incredible output and who doesn't actually have much exposed form that is significantly superior to the blokes doing his potential roles at the moment.

    We're bringing guys like JDG, Wells and Elliott back through the VFL, guys with much more runs on the board than him, I'm not sure why bringing Moore back through the VFL is a bigger issue.

    Moore when fit is in the best 22.

    He is a better forward option than Reid or Cox.

    He is a better defensive option than langdon or Scharenberg.

    I think he would also be great playing as a tall wingman / midfielder.

    Cox has not played a good game all year.

    You can’t play Moore in the twos and Cox in the seniors. Moore has played 2 quarters up front this year and has contributed more than Cox

    The forward line becomes more mobile and dangerous with Moore as one of the talls over Cox or Reid

    I wouldn’t say Cox has played a good game this year so he is in the gun

    You keep saying White kicked bags of 5 and that is just incorrect he never kicked 5 goals in an AFL game

    No he hasn't. Cox has had a direct involvement in a number of goals this season.

    Apologies, I just checked the stats. You're right.

    I just have a different perspective on developing youngsters. I reckon it's more important to maximise their confidence than to maximise the number of AFL games they've played. I reckon a couple of big games in the VFL would be good for his confidence. So I think it would be good for Moore.

    I also think that it will do little harm to the senior team. We're talking about a forward whose best has been a solid contribution. Without checking, I doubt that he's ever got a Brownlow vote, or even been close to getting one. Or alternatively, he's a defender who has barely played in defence. Coupled with this, he's had a limited preseason with limited match practice.

    I'd have no qualms with him being selected, I just don't think he's got enough runs on the board to be an automatic selection, despite how breathtaking some of the runs he's scored have been and how good I think he will be in the future.

    I thought he did quite well vs the Crows. Did not get many Touches but still had a Impact hitting the Contest

    I'd say that Cox's game against Carlton was pretty much the standard average Moore game over the last 2 years. A few nice clunks. Bringing the ball to ground when out of position - (Cox was awful at this against Hawthorn, but has been better than Moore in the last two games in that he's actually been directing the ball to advantage) Good defensive efforts. Cox has had a solid contribution, despite low stats. That's pretty much what Moore has done for us for the last two years.

    You’re not going to let this one go are you?

    Moore’s stats (GWS) two quarters......Cox stats four quarters against the Blues (apparently I have been told Cox’s stats are irrelevant :drunk:)

    was at a work conference last weekend and Darcy made an appearance due to the CGU sponsor connection.

    Was telling everyone he should be right for Anzac day.
