Thought it might be an idea to have a thread dedicated to following the highs and lows of ex-Cats now playing for other clubs (but not add to the Steve Johnson debate - please place elsewhere).

To kick off...
Shane Kersten: 2 matches for 2 losses, 1 goal 1.
Nathan Vardy: 2 (consecutive!) matches, 2 wins, 1 goal.
Josh Caddy: 2 matches, 2 wins, 2 goals 3.

Anyone feel like we're missing these guys?

They said on the radio the other night that Vardy was really good. Didn't see the game though so I can't say for myself.
Oh yeah you forgot Billy. 16 possies I think. (Loss)

Yeh, Vardy's been playing a lot of minutes in the ruck which is not his preferred position but they got nothing else apart from Giles.

I wouldn't mind having Caddy over Blicavs right now to be honest.
More disposals, goals and clearances despite playing fewer minutes in the middle so far.

Agree. I don't think anyone on the Geelong Board seriously wanted to see Caddy go. Big bodied mids like him don't grow on trees

Smedts, Hamling, Walker and Christensen all having practically zero impact as well.

Playing behind the ball in a bottom 3 side.
Interesting that his latest coach also clearly has no idea of Billie's best position.

Bolton only needed to jump on here for five minutes to get the inside word on where to play Smedts but it seems like he's got no idea either.

How could two AFL coaches both get it so wrong?

My consulting rates are very competitive. :)

I don't miss anyone we have traded out post GAJ. Maybe exception being SJ for half of last year.

Like above I reckon only Caddy would get a game for us next week but even then I don't think he'll improve any further so I'm ok with getting some currency for him.
Nothing against him, I really like him but at his age he's about as good as he's gunna get.

Because "Centre-Half-Bench" is not really an on-field position
