That's such a good luxury to have. He'd be starting 22 in almost every other team.
He supposedly was training the house down all preseason but come the actual JLT games was very average. Combined with how he was dropped last year I'd say he'll be in and out rather than a permanent player this year. He can run out games better than most so will slot back in at times. He peaked years ago then became a panic merchant the last few seasons

I always thought he was relatively composed with ball in hand.

I was wondering if it was an intensity thing and whether he was bringing the same defensive pressure as some of the younger players coming through.

Melbourne have similar a situation with Garlett and Spargo. Most Demons fans will say Jeffy is ahead of Spargo on talent, however, it appears Goodwin has Spargo ahead due to his attack on the contest.

that's how shit we were
let a great player go for free, who went on to captain another club
let our best coach for 15 years go, because we were stooged by sheedy using us to up his contract with the druggos

how far we've come
No argument there totally agree

Gaspar was picked up in the pre season draft,, was not part of any trade
Sydney picked up Maxfield as an un contracted player, not part of any trade
Loved the Gas.

He did drop off pretty quick at the end, though. Someone in this thread was speculating it was the 'hands in the back' rule. Might have been.. I always thought the injuries caught up with him and he lost a yard of pace.

Loved Maxfield too. roacheee has a point about how far we've come. Plenty of Swans credit Maxy for being a big part of turning their whole club around and we let him walk for nothing.

Carlton will come out hard.
We will start playing in the second quarter.
We will continue in the 3rd.
They will come back in the fourth as we take our foot off the pedal.
We win by 28.

Prestia 33 touches.
Riewoldt 3 goals and 4 behinds.
Balta to debut and take a pack mark but not much else.. (will come good later in the year)
S.Edwards to show us his 2018 class.

I can see us making a lot of clangers as it's round 1. Will need to tidy up quickly!

C'mon Tigs!!

Tiges in a thrilling encounter by 127
If we went with this team the changes from round 1 2018 would be...

In: Lynch, Prestia, Higgins, Houli, Rioli, Balta, Weller, Broad
Out: Caddy, Grigg, B Ellis, C Ellis, Bolton, Townsend, Castagna, Conca

Easily better despite no Caddy or Grigg

Let's not stop there......

..........

2017:
a) Houligate: Has anyone seen a media explosion to a suspension like this ever and the fake tribunal hearing when the suspension was already decided by the AFL. You would think Houli bashed him to within an inch of his life. Jeremy Cameron got some stick but imagine what he would've copped had he played for Richmond.
.
imagine if he would have face kicked like Toby Grub Greene ????
life ban and a six figure fine for us for bringing the game into disrepute
