On SM-A205YN using BigFooty.com mobile appSome players need a big offseason, Fogarty and Jones for starters.
Our first round choices don’t bode well for this upcoming draft.
Perfectly summed up. Could not like this post more.The perfect reality check.
A true reflection of what was overall a rubbish season, but the last month still gave us some positive signs for the future. I didn't think we'd win a game let alone three. It was an ideal game for Schoenberg, Sholl, Jones, Himmelberg etc to finish the season with - big opposing bodies, elite systems.
Today also tempered that "everything is fine" vibe that was no dount creeping in - everything isn't fine, we still have at least two years of list turnover to go, and an even longer rebuild, and more importantly significant football department and administration changes (if we're serious).
We got a good look at the list this year, and will likely go to the draft with three 1st rounders and two 2nd rounders, with more in 2021. Draft well and it can set us up.
Biggest sigh of relief - #1 ruck is sorted. O'Brien immense.
A long way to go for the club. The main concern from my perspective is the abhorrent state of the league and the sport itself. I struggle to watch it. But that's another thread...
Richmond were miles above us and the umpiring was putrid all round... we have more as a club to worry about than umpiring... kicking and hand balling to hit a target or that isn’t a hospital ball would be my 1st decision.Putrid umpiring display!
Richmond will always be too good with that kind of assistance.
