Why start with such a stupid analogy?Yep let's replace Mackay and Dougie with Lyons.
Hey, Eddie can jump a bit.....maybe he can Ruck too.
To me our issue in the middle is lack of a genuine elite playmaker. Most good sides have two. Sloaney, Crouchs and everyone else we have are not that. Neither is Lyons.
As I said earlier, Brisbane's midfield and overall team success is not due to playing Lyons in his natural role (the role Sloane plays for us), but the overall quality and balance of their midfield.
Replacing Mackay or Douglas for Lyons adds little value.
But replacing Atkins Gibbs, Dougie or even B Crouch (the mids we have who are our playmakers, sad isn't it) with a genuine elite playmaking mid would make us a competitive side again.
I am hoping Milera becomes that. But that is becoming shaky.
When you look at who our attacking/playmaking mids are, and compare them to what other clubs have, you see why our midfield is one of the worst (the worst) in the league.
I am hoping Milera becomes that elite playmaker. By that is becoming shaky.
Going forward we need to surround the Crouch's with that quality mid. This Carlton pick must be used for that.
Oh and teaching most of our list to stick a tackle.

It’s not our problem you can’t recall Lyons playing that half forward mid role better than Douglas ever has
