    May be because the Gabba dimensions are most similar to the MCG out of any of the other home grounds?

    Still, a long way off the greatest (attempted) travesty in Melburnian umpiring history.

    And I thought yesterday's match was a let down after a great first half, this game was over before it even begun

    GWS moving on from Shaw and Mumford. I know Shaw was average this year but suddenly I feel like they will slide (albeit slightly) next year

    Jeez Suns aren't looking good. Quarter of their entire list looks to be out the door and no coach still - we had Fagan in by pretty much thia time last year. Odd look to have some critical roles in trading/drafting period held by people who are likely to be cut loose under the new regime. Concerning.

    Massive injury issues this year and they never really clicked afterwards. If that improves...

    But on the other hand, some of their recent mature recruits are head scratchers. They did it really well initially, but they way overpaid for the warmed-up corpse of Deledio there's a few more who are well past it and not really the leader types either.

    If they can sort the injuries out, then maybe, but yeah they're not looking like the unstoppable juggernaut at this stage.

    If Deledio can have an injury free run, I could see him playing a valuable role for them next year. He's not that old and he isn't someone who is too beaten up by footy.

    The problem he has is his recent injuries are "old man" soft tissue injuries which are difficult to shake.

    Each 2 their own. Must admit I was not a rugby lover 4 years ago but my kids kept nagging me to go watch the storm and have been going when we can for the last 3 years. AAMI park a great venue 2 watch. Atmosphere, entertainment is great. When you can go to a prelimanary final at AAMI Park and it costs you $ 20.00 for an adult then in my opinion it is great value. Don't underestimate the skill of the game. Our AFL game now has so many packs ,scrimmages and congestions as well.

    Especially Gus Gould the numb skull. Apparently Sydney's top rugby league reporter said its boring when Melbourne win coz nobody cares........we do drongo! That fathead Sydney Boys Club is what is holding back League from being a true National game and they don't realise it..........in denial!

    Caracella's name is gaining momentum for the Gold Coast job.

    He'd join the Lions' premiership player turned head coach stable of : C. Scott, B. Scott, Leppitsch, Voss, Buckley

    I'm guessing the BF mobile app doesn't support strike-throughs on text.

    Loving what the Blues have been doing the past 2 off seasons. Now they look set to bring in some decent talent and highly rated forward coach in Teague I think they could surprise a few next year. Their list is very good, just very young.

    Not sure that's quite true. Sure Cripps was injured but their better players this year were the older ones.

    1st – Marc Murphy (174 votes)
    2nd – Sam Docherty (169)
    3rd – Matthew Kreuzer (164)
    4th – Bryce Gibbs (130)
    5th - Kade Simpson (103)
    6th – Matthew Wright (96)
    7th – Lachie Plowman (95)
    8th – Patrick Cripps (92)
    9th – Liam Jones (84)
    10th - Charlie Curnow (81)

    Thy are poised for a seamless transition IMO. Have a very good core of youngsters with a developing list of 22-25 year olds. Compare that to us for example we really lack that 22-25 year old age bracket of quality and I fear we might stagnate a bit in a few years when Rocky, Beams, Zorko etc get too old while we wait for last seasons and next 2 draft periods of talent to play catch up. Of course a lot of water to flow under the bridge until then though.
