Youve lost Lachie, eventually the heart thats broken does mend.Honestly? I think we ****** around a lot and pi**ed off a lot of people unnecessarily for little gain. We ended up getting the players we were after in the end as it was - so that's a plus. I just think our approach was a bit off, and reading between the lines of various commentary it's highlighted that the club does indeed have some internal issues right now.
Most of you lot won't give a **** what other clubs think about us - or call it sour grapes from the media perspective, but I'm inclined to be less positive about the club than I was a few months ago, which is saying something.
On the flipside of all of that - hopefully Bell can straighten some of that out, and I hope that we either promote Walls to list manager, or get someone A-class in so that Rosich can go back to being a corporate bulldog.
So yeah - I'm excited for Hogan and Lobb, meh on Colyer and Conca, excited for pick 14, but overall 50/50 on how this all played out rather than the result (which I think was great)
His field kicking is atrocious though. Hogan will be better at it or McCarthy even for that role. Cox, Lobb, Hogan and Tabs does not fit in one fwdlineThink Tabs has an important role to play off a HFF, similar to the role Jenkins plays for Adelaide. He can roam up the ground, take relieving marks down the wing etc. It's a role we really missed this year - way too many turnovers on long get out of jail kicks down the wing, leaving us wide open on the counter.
McCarthy's inside 50s have been elite when he gets a chance, hopefully he will get more opportunity to show us (and motivation to do so because of the pressure for spots). As others have said he could play in that real link up role while still kicking goals, the only comparison I can think of is Andrew Embley (sorry). Would love to see Hogan and McCarthy roaming around f50 while Lobb and/or Tabs stay more full forward. Cox playing between HF and FF?or McCarthy even for that role.
You can start by staying the hell away from Brayshaw. I see you, eyeing another tough inside mid with a winning smile, but it's not happening mate.I've had the same buddy for 7 years, don't even know where to start
I picked up Neale from when he was drafted and stuck by him, so I think i'll look at who we pick up in the draft ahead of bandwagoning an established player Not that I have a great track record in picking them - I had Pitt before Neale.You can start by staying the hell away from Brayshaw.

Life goes on Arc, you could show some benevolence and adopt a Conca or Colyer. Both are looking like the terminally ill 3-legged dog at the RSPCA shelter atm
I don't think it's bandwagoning if nobody else wants them but fair enough. I know the feeling, believe me. Of all my buddies only Brayshaw and Sutcliffe are still on the listI picked up Neale from when he was drafted and stuck by him, so I think i'll look at who we pick up in the draft ahead of bandwagoning an established player Not that I have a great track record in picking them - I had Pitt before Neale.
