Yeah I agree, KK looked to be coming good early but once those neck/concussion issues started he lost all confidence and became a shadow of the player he was going to be. One of the few I'd like to see do well given he did seem to do everything right by the club while he was here and didn't jump into the media and blast us after he left.

Yeah, I would like to see him get over them and play some good football. As long as it isn't against us.

After his first year kk looked like a player that everyone wanted.
Tall enough to play on a third tall in a pinch but suited to midsizers.
Good intercept marker
Good disposer.
Offensive player in the backline.
Just went backwards after the injuries.
I feel sorry for him how it turned out.

In saying that always seemed very passive and just anaemic, never played with any force or tried to dominate an opposition.

I’d say we’ve now got a similar guy in Charlie Ballard but he’ll rip your head off and throw it into the crowd. Love his zeal.

I clearly missed something...

Anyway... this season might be our best chance to get close to the Crows. Have looked up and down this season so far. Hopefully we catch them on a 'down' day.

Geelong are looking bloody good early doors.

Was literally just talking to our good friend KT about this possibility. I miss his work at the SUNS :(

No doubt they'll start getting their act together just before we play them and Eddy will be on a purple goal kicking streak

Geelong did look good last night, but I'm not sure they can sustain it throughout the year. It is a long season. I'd rather start slow and build up.

On a good note, thankfully that injury to seeds was not a ACL. There has been enough of them for a whole year already.

Really despise The Needles with Ingrate Bedwetter Saad and the cheating,generally quite a rich entitled club too BUT with Slimebag May having broken a lovely local girls heart and running off down there after our WAGS ran him out of town and his expecting easy success it’s quite enjoyable watching them struggle and implode.
I’m torn.

If they're challenging; they better start getting their shit together. now 0-3.
I can't see them making it. To give up 40 goals in 2 weeks is unheard of these days. They can't stop teams scoring in bursts and the 6-6-6 might be affecting them more than others

Think they didn't come back on the plane from perth in that prelim. Something changed. They recruited a defender in the off season, what they really needed was a Jesse Hogan replacement.

People saying earlier in preseason we should have picked up Gibbons. Currently has 1 kick to half way through the 4th quarter.
