    They won't and should not remove him.

    He was voted best AFL captain by his peers. I think they know a few things.

    What about Rory Laird? Consistent performer and seems to cope very well in the media limelight.
    The 2 Crouches are the media-shy type so not quite suitable at this stage, for at least the next 2-3 years.

    Good point. Give it to the AFL standard footballer who signs the longest contract.

    Ha! I like this. All 5 year + contracts come with a free captaincy. Sign on now. Offer ends start of trade week so don't miss out on this exclusive offer.

    Why? It's a relevant discussion? Don't join in.
    Nobody said to replace Walker now but it has to happen and it's about who is possible as one candidate leaving shortly.

    I reckon if Tex leads us to another granny and the team loses as badly as last week he'll resign it.

    I doubt a bloke who's priority is money would be on the clubs list for future Captain.

    Please enlighten me in why....
    Do you expect Tex to captain for the next 5 years?

    We should sack the coach as well and trade the entire defensive unit.

    I expect him to be Captain next year so there's no frigging need for this thread.

    The club can plan... but it's not needed at the moment. This is a knee-jerk reaction and also not necessary.

    Irony
    I'm inferring the rest of the comp might like us having a player who when struggling to have an impact can't be dropped. In the same way we like Port Adelaide being stuck with Ken Hinkley for another 4 years.

    You're gonna have to explain the irony part

    And just because he's captain, doesn't mean Tex can not be dropped. He doesn't deserve to be dropped either.
