Fagan sounded a bit croaky in the press conference today. Wonder if that bug is still effecting our squad
IMO Daniel Bradshaw was a sensational Centre Half Back on the rare occasion he played there.I think that's right ,he's important to our structure now.
Just looking ahead if Adams turns out to be a gorilla we could really provide nightmares for the opposition. Remember when great key position backmen like Roos, Knights ,Silvagni ,Grant ,Quinlan, Glendenning amongst many others went forward for periods and really created mayhem.
From that list you realise they need to be good. But we can dream maybe Harris can get near that class.
McStay had 1 kick and 6 handpasses against Melbourne. Did not see him break the packs open. IMO he could not read the play at all so did not get near the ball. This player is not a full forward. If that's what our COACH wants him to play like that he could be restricking his ability so their is a problem. Let's see what he can do this week. Look at the other full forwards in the comp and are playing totally different to McStay. You will never kick many goals,stats, etc and impress your Coaches with performances like this. Hopefully this is a reason Adams has come in. Use McStay as a second ruck.Spud due to 1 kick. Righto. Would much rather him on the team than you on this board if l am being honest...
Lester has done really good, not going to be our best player but what makes a good team is the bottom 5 or so players.He will continue getting games as he is doing what the coaches ask of him, just like McStay. Players aren't going to get teams if they don't adhere to team structure (Cutler for example)
Rayner was solid last week. No reason he would be dropped after that performance. Mcstay, hard to imagine people would honestly think dropping Macca is a good idea. Adams is a surprise, but who cares.. excited to see him play.All those questioning our game day selections need to calm the ass down.
Fagan has specifically stated that selections serve multiple purposes, not the least of which is player development with an eye to the future.
Rayner, McStay and all the other whipping boys are being picked for the future, regardless of idiotic comments on social media.
I'm more interested in who they pick if/when we make finals.
I really want to believe and will try to will myself to believing, but I tipped GWS.reckon we are a chance on Sunday Dyl?
If we beat GWS away by 160 you would like to think that *that* would at least get a mention on the footy shows ... except that the major story would be Crisis at Collingwood not Ravenous Lions chow done medium rare Giants.If we win by 160 points, we could actually overtake Collingwood. That would be sweet.
Same. We are probably about as much chance as the Dees were coming up to the Gabba last week. We will most likely have our "oh yeah, these Guys are good" moment at some stage early in the third 1/4. still think we are a show.I really want to believe and will try to will myself to believing, but I tipped GWS.
I don't think we aren't without a chance though. The footy talking heads keep talking about us needing that big win away from home and I agree and for some reason I'm genuinely optimistic about our chances this week for some reason. No rhyme or reason though.
