Stoddart? Yeah I agree, I know you weren’t having a go at him. He’s finding his feet but if he flops this week, we know he’s not ready. He will be next year in my opinion.I was generally happy he was getting a game again not having a go at the young kid
He deserves another go regardless of the neafl imo
Kawhi Leonard is a ****ing Robot. The only thing we have that resembles one is Melican and his 3 actions of getting the ball to boot.I know its a different sport but look at the NBA, raptors Managed Kahwi all year and he was right for the playoffs and they really pinched a championship as others dropped
We havent ever rest for september either which frustrates me
But to me if we want to prolong JPK and Buddy- shut both down now
Heeney looked proppy all year, why not even give a rampe or a parker some time away - go freshen up for next year
Theres no benefit to us to play these key guys out if they are proppy at all
To be fair, he hasn’t done much at all. We should never have bought bought him in the first place - he was never going to be part of our future.Feel bad for Menzel we got him over to Sydney probably thinking we were still a finals contender hasnt really done a lot wrong but is languishing in the NEAFL.
There is an argument to say that the AFL has an active policy to discourage our traditional style of play - which is probably why we get so many frees against us for tackling and HTB.thats good
This will sound wrong- love the club, there's positives etc, but we are a chore to watch at times, with the rest of the league as a whole- a lot of it is the game itself, a reasonable amount is the way we play
its quite tedious
Well club cant win no trades why didnt we get Menzel or Scully or Watts, people were begging for someone anyone to be traded.
I don't think Clarke was a desperate trade - Young with games under his belt and affordable. He still may play a role over the next few years.
you used to love him
This is an area where I’m critical of the club. Hopefully Clarke and Thurlow come good but....I don't think Clarke was a desperate trade - Young with games under his belt and affordable. He still may play a role over the next few years.
Thurlow was our 3rd choice at halfback - yep we were desperately clutching
Menzal was free, so why not. He may even have some value in this years trade period?
Spot on BfB.This is an area where I’m critical of the club. Hopefully Clarke and Thurlow come good but....
We delisted Robbo and Towers. Clarke isn’t (yet) an improvement on Robbo. Similar fitness. Similar possessions. Robbo far better disposal.
Thurlow and Towers are different players but by god how we have missed Towers’ versatility (esp Ruck) this season.
Menzel was a free hit but so would Kyle Dunkley have been. And we’d seen enough of him to justify his rookie listing.
