    Dimma is hurting them more than Hirdy hurt the bombers.

    My opinion is that they've got a quality list offset by so called 'A-graders' such as Vickery and Edwards who are in actuality just absolute trash.

    You need a more imaginative way to slip in a "Where are they at?" thread.

    They have a terrific list that should be contending for top four and/or a flag. The problems are in their staff room.

    Nah, just need to open up the war chest and land the big fish in the off season. Instant premiership contenders again.

    Overachieved and led people to believe that players like Cotchin and Martin are A graders when they simply aren't.

    Their bottom 10 players would be amongst the worst in the league.

    Yes, they need a rebuild.

    Need to find wingers with genuine pace.
    Trade Vickery, get rid/replace Houli and Grigg. 3 soft players and clanger kings.

    This would be a great start.

    Clone of Carlton when they peaked in 2011 and collapsed in 2012 after some injuries. Carlton re-signed Ratts at the start of the year too.

    Cotchin and Martin = Murphy and Gibbs.
    Deledio = Judd
    B and C graders like Hunt, Chaplin, Grigg = Ellard, Thornton, Armfield

    A few injuries expose how shit the list really is.

    It's hard to see them contending for a long time. They aren't playing good footy at the moment but they showed in the past that they are capable of turning it around. Somewhere around 8 to 10th at this stage.
