If Mills is back, I dint reckon Gould gets his debut

if Rampe wasnt injured how would the back six operate?

Fox, Melican, Aliir
Lloyd, McCartin, Rampe

??

how does he fit in long term?? (well medium term as he is 27?)

Theres only 2 weeks left just want to see the best mix, and this match i wouldnt have him on either McStay or Hipwood

What a funny year 2020 is... "Robbie Fox" and "dropped" in the same sentence and everyone being immediately triggered (myself included).

Good on him though. Love seeing a guy save his career.
At one stage I think I was his one fan. This was when Horse was moving him all round the ground.

Well done to you sir!

I was never a fan but was also never a critic. My only beef with him was that he wasn't good or bad, he was just a non-factor. I used to think why are we bothering playing this guy who doesn't seem to have an obvious role and who has no impact on the game? Credit to Horse because he's taking the fact he's not prolific with the footy and found Fox a role where he doesn't need to be but can still have a big impact on the outcome.

I wonder how much the daily travel influences the outcomes of the games. For example Melbourne have to do the all day flying and travelling to play the swans. Run out of gas get beaten. Swans do the all day flying and travelling to play Carlton. Run out of gas, Get beaten. GWS do the all day flying and travelling to Adelaide. Get beaten. On Sunday Brisbane do the all day flying and travelling to play Sydney in Cairns. ?

Harry Marsh was the same player as Fox. If i had a choice it would have been Marsh on the list and not Fox. Marsh would be a walk up start in this backline.

Marsh had a good Prelim and go dropped for Macca
I personally think this is a bit of a fallacy.

Marsh had 8 disposals in the prelim, only 3 of which were kicks, 2 tackles, 1 Mark and 0 rebound 50s.

To compare (in the GF) to the two usually other brought up:

Mills 15 disposals (6 kicks), 3 marks, 5 tackles 3 rebound 50s

McVeigh 14 disposals (8 kicks), 2 marks, 3 tackles, 3 rebound 50s


I doubt changing either out for Marsh would have made a positive difference.

There is a reason Marsh was delisted, and more importantly, not picked up by any other club.

Yeah that reason being we had significantly better list back then.

Marsh would be better than half the guys on our current list (which says more about them than it does about him.)
