    Man he looked white as a ghost , no energy. Quiet games sure but I've never seen him listless like that, I would give him the benefit of the doubt today

    The lack of energy after two pretty good games just seemed to scream that he might have had the flu or just got over it. Sure he will lift for the weasels though he always does.

    I just noticed that after last week's two goals Ballas is now the second highest goal kicker in our history, overtaking The Wiz.

    The Wizard would have scored consistent 50 goal seasons with our midfield.

    I don't think anyone would claim Ballas is a better player than Farmer was.

    Yeah but I think "second" highest implies the level of player.

    Perhaps its rather showing of how bad we have been in the past :/

    If you recorded the game on foxtel go back and watch the teams pregame handball/contact warm up drill and watch Balla's. Says it all for me. He was crook.

    He might have come out if we had have brought over more than one emergency.

    I'm wondering about Mundy's illness, hope it isn't the flu going around.

    He's not worth another year.
    Game has gone past him imo

    He shouldn't be playing now. We are supposed to be rebuilding and blooding new players. Not the same old blokes who fall over all the time.

    Yep, surely it's over for him. He offered something in the Geelong/Saints games and has barely been sighted since. Absolute no point playing him over Deluca/Grey.

    If he gets another contract I'll be livid.

    He turns 30 today. He is a Free Agent. would give him one more year. If another club offers him 2 years, let him go.

    Such a morale sapping moment when Kersten set him up with that pinpoint handball over the top running into goal only for Ballas to first fumble the ball, then fall over.

    I wouldn't offer him another contract slips over at the wrong moments too often and just isn't making an impact anymore on games.

    He is currently on 145 games. If the club have no plans for him. Should ross and match committee with 6 games get him to 150 and life membership like subes.

    As really we should be getting games into deluca and others as ballas isn't going to be around for next premiership window.

    I'll have to watch the replay, but I thought the handball wasn't fantastic. It was good enough though, and Balla needed to take the thing ... but yeah, when he slipped and spluttered, it strangely enough didn't surprise me.

    He also looks short of a gallop still. Everybody looked a bit cooked in the end, but he was labouring a lot more than someone who has done as many pre-seasons as Balla should. Not sure he's all there fitness wise - whether illness or just too many injuries this year to build fitness ... not sure.

    Let go back to Peel and win a flag. Give the likes of Deluca, Grey, Langdon, and Balic more games.
