    Noticed latest Geelong Falcons squad didn’t have Lochlan Hocking in it but had Brownless & Mench

    Fascinating. And somehow I'm not sure the Falcons represent part of the Gold Coast Academy...

    I assume they are just listing him so theres the option to have him play a couple of games if he wants to later in the year. When he and his dad live in QLD and he has been playing for the Suns academy side i can't imagine he would logistically be looking at playing a whole year with the Falcons.

    Turns out it’s actually a different bailey Scott from Colac. Roberts son is still in the Gold Coast. Won’t be confusing at all.

    I hope Gold Coast draft the bloke from Colac and we get Robert's son.

    I'm sure we can find a "Scott Bailey" for North Melbourne to have.

    Yeah, he's a Top 10 or Top 20 talent, you never know, if he get's injured or flattens out from last year, he could slide to our First Round pick.

    In a light hearted reference to "roux" from the good doctor:
    The reply:
    Classy.
    This sort of stuff makes the board very entertaining. Lifts the mood.

    Somebody tenacious enough may be able to reveal the exact W/L ratio of Geelong with Stanley in at CHF or thereabouts.
    At Geelong, he has played 42 games for 14 losses, ie 1/3, not shabby

    They're expecting a big year from Brownless as a midfielder.

    His Dad was a dead set gun. Oscar is a vastly different player and will either be a running defender or a outside midfielder who is good one on one.

    We have a better win record when he's not in the side though.

    Re Stanley

    He's been tried over and over at St Kilda and now and again at Geelong at CHF ...for a poor return. Can he defend?.....try him as a KD in the practice games? he's got the pace, and good hands ( sometimes ).... its getting to the desperation stage with Rhys...he needs to produce this year..

    2015 - 4 wins and 4 losses with, 7 wins, 5 losses, 1 draw without
    2016 - 16 wins 5 loses with, 2 wins 1 loss without (poor sample size here though)
    2017 - 7 wins, 5 losses 1 draw with, 9 wins and 3 losses without

    Obviously not definitive proof, but I think we're a much better side when's he's not in it. These numbers support that.

    27 w, 14 l, 1 d with 66.3%
    18 w, 9 l, 1 d without 67.3%
    Those numbers are not statistically significant in anybody's language, but you are entitled to your perception.

    Obviously the overall number is skewed by 2016, a year in which we were very good regardless.
    I think had we looked to a smaller forward set-up and left him out that year, we'd have been better off. Given the lack of evidence, we can't say either way if that's right or wrong.

    In 2015 we were just an ordinary side, still performed better without Rhys though.

    We were certainly much better without him in 2017, that's barely even up for debate.

    Looks like Crameri is a sick note. I mentioned this before we drafted him. Didn't cost much, but I have serious doubts he will make it on the ground.
