    Laird is a guy that goes under the radar a bit in this regard.

    But apparantley is quite a strong voice on the ground.

    A fair lot of us spent the past couple years saying Lever is a future captain of the club. Not sure why a thread wondering who given Lever is going will be a future captain of the club is a shit thread. I think it is a good discussion. Who are the young leaders?

    Sloane is a no brainer, but he's not young, so who then? Talia? Do you go with a backman? Crouchs? Love em but do they even want that type of role? Someone suggesting Laird was a good call.

    Good thread. Good discussion to have. Clubs need young leaders coming through.

    Maybe having a CHF as captain is not a good thing. It's the hardest position on the field and unless you are a superstar (Carey, Kenrahan) which Tex isn't, the averages say you will have more bad than good days. A captain leads by example.

    Bit harsh mate. Not really necessary.

    She is entitled to voice her opinion equally as much as all others.

    Whether she deserves to be a mod or not I don't know cause I don't know the selection criteria.

    Brodie Smith could spend his years recovery working with coaches and helping develop his leadership off field. Could be a Sam Docherty type leader off half back/midfield.

    No need to be a dick. This thread is as a direct result of Tex's game on the weekend. He's a bloody good captain - voted TWICE by his peers as best AFL Captain. So he had a crap game... as did they all (except Matty Crouch). You reckon Tex doesn't feel like shit already? Let's go add to it by starting these types of threads. Jesus.

    Van Berlo was fighting for his spot at 29, Tex will be close to being our highest goal scorer by then.

    Tex will have captaincy until his spot is in danger, and by then it's too far into the future to know who will get it. No one strikes me as a captain in our younger brigade currently, but someone may grow into it.

    True, I dont think that's beyond the realms of possibility at all.
    I think thats the old way, not so.sure anymore.

    As players get older it becomes harder to balance the media side of things, leading and playing your own game, recovery etc.

    It could be best for all involved to have him become a leader like hodge was this year, but without the c next to his name.

    Jono Brown, Tredrea, Hird (cough cough), Pav, Rough, Reiwoldt - yeah, probably right. CHF as a captain is not a good thing

    Tex will be our captain for the next 5 years, no need to waste time on who will be our next captain.

    He and most of the team had a shit game on the weekend, which they all know, by the time Tex retires he will be our best ever captain (hopefully most successful)& leading goal kicker.

    This is as good of a call as any, Tex had a stinker on Saturday, but unless he does it in a grand final again he'll be captain for the foreseeable future.

    Look at Richmond, Cotchin was in a similar position to Tex after the 2015 finals with a lot less runs on the board but they stuck by him and now they're laughing.

    Good thread. I think Tex still has something to give. However, I'd like to see someone like one of the crouch's or sloaney given a crack it. Those 3 would make outstanding captains

    Matt Crouch should be groomed to be our next captain if sloane departs end of next year.

    Agreed, as a neutral I cringe watching this bloke captain your club.
    Viewed the 1st half again of the GF to see where it was won/lost and couldn't believe the lack of effort/grunt Walker gave when the heat was on...didn't chase, block, run with or exert any physical pressure when it was needed and was constantly pointing the finger and berating his own. Meanwhile Sloane dug in and kept you in it.
    At least you know what you're going to get with Sloane, hope you can hang on to him.

    The new sound..
    Tex is injured, turf toe. He was last year, got over it, it came back.
    Most players don't/can't even play with it.
    Sandilands sat out most of a year and then again part of the next year when it flared up.

    I knew it anyway but Rowe and Bickley the other night said Tex won't make excuses but he's not right, Rowie then mumbled yeah the bloody turf toe.
    He's pissed he can't do what he wants due to the injury.

    We've seen what Tex can do and how he leads in a play sense.
    Still a great leader in the other ways.
