I see.

Mine was a whimsical look at the issue of big brother.
And ofcourse Australia had its version of big brother.
And a catch phrase to boot.
So that’s all it was.

All is good cleomenes and no banishment is offered nor ever offered.
Besides I really like the ship.

Then again cleomenes might be teasing me now.
Yes it was a lovely ship, pity it blew up, now saintly you didn’t do that two, did you

It will be a disgrace if Sier doesn't play AFL in Round 1. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
Without knowing what is happening in the four walls of the Holden Centre that is a very strong opinion to hold.

But yes, I'll be very disappointed as well if he's not starting in the AFL team this year. I love him as a player and thought he was over the issues that held him back his first two years at the club.

At the moment it doesn't look like Bews and Tuohy will make round 1 so it leaves our small defender options a little short which plays into your hands a little.

Now can you please start an actual preview thread so I can talk sense rather than interact with the nuffies and degenerates on the Geelong board.

Premature anticipation never did/does any of us any good.
Hopefully knowing we sympathise will get you through.
I didn't watch your JLT 1 game but what are your plans for Beams based on that and in regards to fitting him into your midfield given you have Pendlebury, Treloar, Sidebottom, etc.

We seem to be playing Selwood more on a wing and in other roles and he look really fit in comparison to the previous couple of seasons. Do you see Greenwood being given the task again from outside the square given he's done a fairly good job in the past?

Surely Greenwood plays on Selwood

Beams and Treloar will spend periods up forward and in the midfield. Pendles imo isn’t as good up forward as those two and I think despite Sidebottom being a very good natural crumber, he will mainly play in the midfield.

Greenwood has found success playing in defense recently but has history running with Selwood, that’s all up in the air atm but I’m sure they’ll run into each other at some point.

What position will Cam Guthrie be playing?

You'd think so but given the new 6-6-6 rule and it being vital to prevent centre clearances, maybe he goes to Dangerfield instead.

Watching on as the opposition run past him.

Reading into the teams selected for JLT and v Demons and v Geelong we might be looking at something like this:


Round 1

B. Langdon ~ Roughead ~ Maynard

HB. Howe ~ Moore ~ Crisp

C. Sidebottom ~ Beams ~ Phillips

HF. Stephenson ~ De Goey ~ Varcoe

F. Elliott ~ Cox ~ Thomas

R. Grundy ~ Pendlebury (c) ~ Treloar

I. Mihocek ~ Mayne ~ Sier ~ Aish

E. Goldsack, Greenwood, Murphy, Daicos

Injured list (presumed): Wells, Adams, Hoskin-Elliott, Reid, Scharenberg, Dunn


NB: Greenwood is the one player that might be unlucky but for whom, Aish?
Goldsack is a favourite of the coaching group but can’t see who he pushes aside.
Sier, if fit, will get the nod in my view.

I’m really confident Greenwood will play, he’s been one of our best players this preseason and he’s been selected off of a lot less in recent season. I don’t think Sier is the lock most of us hope he is

You might be right at that.

Be more than a few players somewhat nervous about being selected round 1.

Pains me to say, but based on how selections have gone I think Greenwood will be in over Sier.

Geez, there's a fair amount of depth at the Pies.
