    backline has fallen away since the GF
    Adams is injury prone, Hamling left, Murphy & Boyd gone, Morris not far behind.

    And they were 7th the year they won it. it was a supreme finals effort but i don't think much of their list.

    They are young so like you say a few tweaks and they should be ok.

    i like Hunter. he is hard at it and generally uses it well.
    Daniel is a gun too.
    it tails off from there. Dale looks promising.

    They also have Collins and Cordy.

    Cordy in particular I think could be real talent.

    I thought he showed quite a bit as a forward at the end of last year and I'm tipping he will have a good career.

    Lol I had to use a dictionary all those years ago. It's a furniture removal lorry with a distinctive shape and I think the word is unique to England.

    I actually like Norths forwards in that comparison. Obviously a Coleman medalist may lack Waite’s potential but the others are role players. Rioli would probably get a game though wouldn’t he?

    Is there a more overrated player than Puopolo?

    To be fair it is really only Hawthorn supporters who are trying to shell him off for a superstar. I think the rest of the league are smart enough not to buy it haha

    Dusty obviously thought differently than that guy haha.

    In all seriousness, Ill cop townsend and maybe catagna.

    But Riewoldt, Rioli, Caddy, Edwards and butler are all better than the above mentioned.
    1. They tackle.
    2. They play more than 5 games a year through injury.

    This splitting the Collingwood vote angle is bizarre, their combined total was less than Joes.

    Also, if Howes was so good, why were their fans voting for grundy

    I don't think anyone has ever said Collingwood supporters were mathematicians.

    In that vein it's quite appropriate that it's Howe who they are melting about.
