Cegs has to go out, Pop should go out also...

CJ and TOB in... Play Silk as a pressure forward and leave him for some 1v1s, let CJ play the Impey role.

Mega like, and can't believe TOB-IN from Tige reads as normal and common sense.o_O
I'd love Silk to play FF the rest of this year and all next, reckon we could tease 50 goals out of him and his wizardry even at the slowing of the great man.
Time to set CJ free too.

Glad to see you don't stick to old whipping boys!

I genuinely think Lewis, O'Brien, Nash as three mobile talls is an extremely dangerous prospect. Particularly when you throw Breust and Gunston into the mix, all we need is for a bit more pressure to sure up rebounds and we're sweet.

Um, I can’t see this elsewhere. I believe that this week Shaun becomes the most capped indigenous player ever, at 373 games.

I, personally, would like to thank Shaun for being incredible, for giving me so much pleasure, for being silk. I still love you, really hope that your boys get up for you this week, and that you just keep on going.

Thanks Shaun.

This is the thing that gets under my goat here.. 100% of the time I’ll put my hand up and say “I got it wrong”, also, none of my opinion is personal like so many would like to think.

I was very critical of TOB, it is frustration as much as anything due to his obvious physical abilities. He has a ways to go but the signs are really positive and I’m super happy for the guy. Long live his reign!

We might not playing in the finals, but let's turn up to Marvel stadium on Friday night to celebrate Shaun "Silk" Burgoyne 373 games.

I was crying watching this clip. Chad is a Hawks, Impey... how we missed him last week. Anyway it's a replacement game and the club send out messages on how to upgrade to reserved with $15. See you all there :)

You're having Whitfield play VFL this week? What is wrong with you?

One notable absentee from the group that was assembled to celebrate this mighty achievement, the current record holder! Not sure if there is history between the two of them, anyone shed some light there?

I don't want to turn this in to an 'Adam Goodes' thing, but these are the sorts of things I'd expect a great leader to attend, unless of course the Burgoyne's didn't want him there.

I'm stoked that people seem genuinely excited to see timmy-o back in, and massively happy that people seem to want Nash in.
I think Poppy/Howe make way for a debutant this week.

Poppy stays, not the week for debuts. Big Congrats to Silk, sign him up for 3 years!
With Poppy, stop kicking it on top of his head. Take a leaf from lions book and just kick it to space and let pop get his pistons going and do his thing. The delivery to him is shite so output is the same

:rolleyes: I mean apart from the fact he mentioned Goodes in his interview...... I didn't see Buddy or Cyril there, or his brother, not everyone can make these sorts of events

I imagine there were many more invited but simply weren't able to attend. Events that are mid-week and interstate aren't exactly going to be the easiest to get to.

Yeah, fair enough, but was just asking, as I wasn't sure if there was a reason behind the no show! Not sure my post deserved the eye rolls.

Buddy and Cyril don't hold the record though do they? Just my opinion that it would have been nice to have Goodes there to 'hand over the baton'. Perhaps he will be there Friday night.

The mention of Goodes was very brief as a player he is passing in terms of games played along with Wanganeen, O'Loughlin etc.
