Nah serious! We’ve taken two completely different paths and I genuinely can’t figure out how you lost your way, but it’s pretty entertaining. Either way I’m out :thumbsu:
Oh, I get you now, I misread your original comment or was not paying close attention to it.

Regarding Armstrong, yeah I think it's a little stiff for him to have been delisted - when he was delisted completely he was on the rookie list and I'm not really sure why he couldn't have gotten an extension over another rookie we picked up in Tim Golds.

There will always be plenty of surprises, and you need to change and improve.

I like Maynard and Crisp as our running HB options, for mine have a bit of H.Shaw & Benny Johnson about them.

I hope the surprise is we get 20 games from Moore, Elliott and Beams.

Greenwood and Mayne are both nearing the end of their careers and I don't know what about Aish screams tagger to you.
Not sure what Greenwood and Mayne near the end of their careers has got to do with the price of fish? Both are listed. Greeny has tagged before and he'll do it again when required. Mayne has proved being on the wing his engine is good and he can tackle .... his ability to find short kick options has been his biggest asset so with Beamsy back, Sidey might get more wing time ala Mayne could tag if required. Just my thoughts. I believe Mayne was in trials for quick kick out too with the new rule coming in.

re: Aish. well he has to do something extra and arguably given given his original draft number pick he probably should have more of an impact. I'm actually a fan so it's not a dis. In the end of year highlights reel there was more than enough very strong attacks by Aish which just made me think he could serve another role if need be.

I wouldn't mess with the defence. They need to be settled and combine. The forward and midfield rotations could be awesome. De Goey and Beams. Sidebottom and WHE. Treloar and Elliott. Grundy and Cox (that ruck rule should gift us some goals I hope this year). Plenty of positional flexibility through midfield and forward to take advantage of mismatches that happen.

Aish for me has a fear of failure. He plays too safe trying to do everything right. Needs to find that instinct that he had in his junior days and take those calculated risks.

It’s ironic because he has ****** us over too often by trying to play safe.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Stevo on the wing, played a great game against Brisbane whilst in that position.
With his tank and speed it could be another good spot for him.

You'd imagine WHE is the 1st cab off that rank if anyone is moving upfield. He had a fantastic year playing a lot more wing in 2017.
