not alone, certainly wasn't best 18 at start of the yearInteresting thing with Coffield is that 12 months ago I had my doubts and only reason I was clinging to hope was probably his draft number.
I feel now like he’s one of our last defensive players we can lose. He’s had an outstanding year. Really hope he gets up.
I think the metric is that St Kilda along with most clubs are using a full squad of 24-26 for each game day.That’d be fine, if he deserved to be dropped. Maybe Ratts is using a different metric we’re not privy to.
It’ll remain weird until we hear a reasoning behind it.
Poor by the club if trueObviously Facebook is not a reliable source.
But a bloke on a St Kilda page has suggested Carlisle is close to meeting a games played bonus and the club is trying to save some $$$.
Usually would pay no mind to anyone on there but after claiming “Jake is one of my good mates” I had a quick look at his profile and one of his profile pictures is with a bloke that is definitely one of Jake’s best mates. So could potentially travel in the same friendship group. Said the info is “not from my mouth.”
Wouldn’t take it too seriously but since we’re all wondering it thought it was worth mentioning.
Considering the predictions of our duelling Rob Gells:Carlisle a late change for Gears I wouldn’t mind seeing. Preserve old legs and what not.
Weatherzone which uses BOM.. says about 40-50% chance of rain while the game is on. Was also supposed to rain heavily on Sunday.. it didnt
Perhaps the match committee are waiting for game day to see if it turns out to be a passing puppy_dog7 or whether it’s torrential plugger66. After all it’s probably an easier exercise to bring in Carlisle from the emergencies than to name him and then drop him from the 22 if the heavens open (in which case West Coast may also make changes)Well 5 to 10 mills are expected from afternoon to evening. That is a bit of rain. Enough to make it slippery. Of course it may not rain but it’s 70% expected.
Nobody knows the details, so let's go easy. Who knows how much, which cap, when, extensions, what position that leaves us in now and in the future. No one knows, so everyone relax and don't start lighting your torches just yet.He is not contracted for next year , so a trigger for a bonus this year then unemployed - joke
Agree. Would be such an amateurish move to do something like that to save money. The amount of money we’d save doing that would be more than made up in the extra revenue that we’d bring in by making finals.Coming into finals we just wouldn't do it 100% sure of that
The f*cking long bomb to nothing does my head in. It is so frustrating to watch, and undoes so much effort and work. Play a bit more cleverly and hit targets with genuine football skills and we won't have to do the moronic long bomb to no one in particular, and give the oppositions key back 3 Brownlow votes after a game.Biggest concern for mine is kicking it inside 50 & the Weagles tall defenders intercepting. Cats, Lions & Demons talls marked everything. We seemed to adjust verse Hawthorn but went too far the other way. I am hoping we find the balance between bombing it long & playing a bit more conservative.
I find it incredibly hard to believe this would happen with the professional outfit we now have running the club.Like you said, unreliable. However if found to be true, the club would have big questions to answer. Like, why did we risk/miss finals for a relatively small amount of $...
