Nah, I'm back onto the bandwagon that says McStay has been selected and I want him to kick a bag of goals and be hugely successful.

I do reserve the right to ratbag him if he has a terrible game.

Nice to hear I am trending on instagram. #3KZisrightagain
I don't even care if he kicks a bag - I'd be happy with efforts like last week - a few snags as well as setting up a few more and competing strongly. I don't expect him to play four great quarters, but three highly competitive quarters should be the bare minimum.

I assumed he was sugar coating the fact he was dropped
Yeah look it could be that or it could be as simple as we are going to play him next week, needed a smaller team to play to conditions/opposition and we are essentially resting him this week. He's not playing NEAFL either which is worth noting.

I guess the end result is he’s being rested but that probably wasn’t the reason he isn’t playing.

We are the form slippery ball team in the comp. Bring it.
Yeah, I agree TBD - it's funny, the theories on wet weather footy.

There's a general school of thought that it evens the skill levels between teams....leveling those differences out.

I have heard more than one commentator though voice the idea that it in fact makes good players more damaging.

Regardless, we have the right stuff for wet weather footy.

He has looked proppy in recent games so there might be something in this. Not sure why he wasn't listed as "managed or rested" rather than "omitted".
Tbh I don't think it matters because it all really means the same thing: player X out, player Y in. Walker and the players will know why he's out and they're the ones that matter.

Went and had a look at training. Lads were having pings at the goals and the ones dropping short were bouncing not skidding. No splash when running around or when the balls bouncing. It’s it great Knick, Bezza thanking everyone for coming out after training, all class that man.

I read it in the Herald/Sun......it was there in the sporting headlines, so any man and his dogs who read the paper will have seen it, or any other teams.

I agree it was awful what happened to Alex, but I'm not the only one thinking it could lead to ridicule, his own teammates are doing it, for a start...

and you think opposition players won't pick up on it? Fair enough.
Players shave their legs, dress like a character from Zoolander and love MAFS, ridicule died a long time ago. Doubt saying 'Alex is a sook, he thinks its cold" will really throw him off his game anyway.

Surprised more people haven't got Billy Puller blocked. He craves attention so intentionally makes controversial posts to bait. Doesn't offer much more than that sadly.
I dont really block posters but he might be one. Dont have time in my life for attention seekers like him.

How good does Fages look playing with the team, boys would have had a laugh. Wonder if any other senior coaches would have done that
