I'd be plonking Polec on a wing to be frank. It's his best position and we'll need him there next year when Dumont leaves (mentally preparing myself for that :().

LMac on one wing doing the defensive running and Polec on the other delivering inside 50 is probably what Noble wants to experiment with.

I'm also in favour of experimenting with Tazza forward for a quarter or so - I just want to see how it looks before the years up. I reckon McKay and Walker can match up okay against the Carlton bigs.

Teague on North Melbourne’s form:

“I think it’s been great. I’m not going to lie, being a former shinboner I keep an eye on them and want them to do well - not this week, sorry all the Shinboner fans. I think David Noble has done a great job. Obviously, they were hit by injuries at the start of the year and they’ve started to get some of their more experienced players back, but then you see the growth of the younger guys and the way that they’re playing. It’s going to be a great challenge for us. They’re in great form and we need to make sure that we continue to focus on what we can control and continue to grow. We’ve got some areas of our game that we want to get better and this week’s another chance to go out there and improve and that’s what we want to do.”

I’ll always resent how Laidley handled Teague. Should’ve retired a North man. Played as a Shinboner and a super nice bloke to boot.

Should've retired a North man?

It's not like we were dealing with Micky Martyn, Corey McKernan, Drew Petrie, Byron or something.

He moved after his third season at the club at 22 years of age to the biggest basket case this century at the time as a guy we drafted in the 4th round of the Rookie Draft.

And they did it to get a favourite son back to the club so HE could retire a North man (McKernan)

I agree he played with guts, but he was a long way from retirement when he left. He left to guaranteed game time at Carlton as much as anything.

Pretty much played 2 more seasons (Won a B&F during their draft penalties years) and was done by 25 years of age.

I‘m aware of who he was and what the trade was.

Teague was barely used in 2003. Carlton and McKernan were happy to see the back of each other and Corey was going to get back to us in the end however it happened.

Believe it or not strong teams aren’t just built on early picks and out and out champions. Teague was developing really nicely under Denis in 2002 and I think he would’ve helped strengthen the sum of our parts in the mid 2000s if he had stayed.

I notice you didn’t mention what his B&F result was at his new club after being traded?

When he gets the flick - get him to the club.
Even if it’s as a doorman.

Like this post if you can see the rationale in Jared Polec being selected for our last 5 games.

i hope the rationale is pumping up his trade value
Yep, at the very least. The kicker is - if Jared were to play to a level that really pumped up his trade value, then we’ve got more good options at the end of the season. On the other hand, if Jared doesn’t play at all, there’s no mileage for anyone in that scenario.
