    Not sure about that. Hawthorn and Sydney both have terrific coaches and how the side is currently performing won't effect that. Made him look like someone who shouldn't persist with the players who didn't perform in that team to me. Wouldn't be many people who mistake Lyon for a fool not matter what they think of the style of football he is know for. It is also abundantly clear that the club has been trying to ride 2 horses. One that leads to finals this season, the other that takes us to a rebuild.

    I also find it amusing posters who think something radical happened. Crozier and Sheridan have been pretty regular members of our best 22, and Sheridan especially has been equally regularly condemned on here as one of Lyon's favourites, "vanilla" etc. Crozier as inconsistent. Reality is they are both at the perfect stage of their careers for the passing over of the baton. Logue has come in at the right time and pretty much as soon as practical. Balic had a fairly ordinary game, and Grey is on the rookie list.

    So true, playing the kids turned out to be 2 kids and 4 who had been tried and on the list for ages. The improvement was the midfield getting to work and the 4 experiences recruits plus Johnson finding some form.

    Classic flanker positioning. Or he thinks there's a landmine in the centre square

    Loved croziers attack on the ball and in the tackle today, I've always seen him as the soft flanker type, but he's clearly found a hard edge. Was composed with the ball too.

    Out of all those only really Weller is a class above if you ask me. You could throw a blanket over the rest at this stage.

    Can't believe Croziers screamer today isn't anywhere in the highlights? Played another influential game today

    Absolutely. Watched the highlights and thought it must have been a dream.

    The word that comes to mind to describe Croz is mercurial. Doesn't get a lot of footy but can turn a match when he does. That 55 metre goal yesterday and that mark are examples.

    I reckon out of all those players that you mentioned, Crozier has the highest ceiling to reach.

    I've always dreaded using the term x-factor to defend a player... But Croz has it in spades.

    Can do some incredible things and then go missing for three quarters, which has always been the knock on him. Just how it is. Has stayed in the game well the last two weeks though. Looks far more dangerous than Ballas has looked in the last two years anyway.

    I'm putting this down more as a symptom of youth than anything else. As you've noted, he's been pretty consistent the last two weeks. Even before that he never went missing for patches in the WAFL games that he played. I'll back him in to develop into a 4-quarter player.

    Very late bloomer, may just have come of age the last 2 games if he can keep it up. Certainly looks a lot more confident and like he belongs out there.

    I noted that 2 of the 3 mark of the year nominations for round 4 were dockers - Crozier and Fyfe

    He played 16 games last year. From R4 onwards until injury at the end of the year. In those games he averaged more disposals and marks than his 2 games this year.

    You're a year late.

    No way would you drop kersten. Already he's playing for freo better than he did at geelong. He did some instrumental stuff in that last quarter. He's part of why we won it. I had my doubts about him but I was wrong.
