    I think this is a genuine concern given how Essendon fans can be. But if they are anything like me they will realise that the season is already done. We aren't making the finals and there is greater value to getting games into the likes of Clarke and Mutch. They will frustrate at times, as most youngsters do, but hopefully come season's end we will have identified another handful of players who can lead us into a more successful period.

    The only thing I really expect from Clarke is that he will be hard at it. He has shown so much progress at VFL level that I'm sure he can make a contribution at AFL level once he gets a feel for the faster pace of the game. I'll only be disappointed if we play him off a half-forward flank for a couple of weeks and then send him back to the VFL.

    Mark I could quite easily see Geelong beating us by 68 points. But not because of some rule that margins are combined, they're just in much better form.

    I don't think that's a homeless guy, that's Dyson Heppell! Shame on you for not knowing.

    This guy is pissed off that Dyson is on the big bucks and is trying to portray the image that he has nothing.

    If Dyson is looking the way that he does to raise awareness and donate to the homeless, he is a good man.

    Menzel not playing this one. What does that do for the expected match-up with Ridley?

    Depends on whether he's a direct replacement for Hurley or if he's playing more the medium role of Goddard/Gleeson.

    I'd have him on a McCarthy type personally.

    No to Goddard in defence please.

    Hooker on Hawkins would be interesting; has the strength to actually hold his own against Hawkins but would probably get burnt on the lead.

    Should be more affluent, ‘successful’ people who look like this just to mess with the unbending, narrow perspective of people like you.
