Roughy only 10 touches and no goals today at Box Hill.

Wore long sleeves too, so no chance now lol

In all seriousness though, the only way he plays is if Lewis tweaked his shoulder late in the game last night.

Even then, I feel like they’d just bring in Big Boy and play Cegs up forward again.
Agree. What’s up with Rough taking on city hall. No winners here and now no farewell game. Clueless.

Nope. That would be unfair on CJ.
He deserves another run on the deck at docklands and he can show his skills under perfect playing conditions.
Playing for finals. Need to put the best squad on the pitch. If Roughie doesn't get any charity then CJ certainly doesn't either.

Roughead should not be selected IMO.

Love the guy, we all do probably, but he is done and unless top 8 is a 100% no, we need to pick our best chance team, and he, after his VFL game, is not.

We need a percentage boost to have chance of finals and other results to fall our way, there's only one of these things we can control so we have to pick a team that can score heavily.

I haven’t done the ladder predictor but I think we need to win by 10+ goals which would be about 5-6% increase. Then hope North Melbourne beat Port Adelaide by 4-5 goals, Collingwood just have to beat Adelaide and GWS against the Bulldogs.

All three of those games are before this match so we will have a good idea of where we might sit going in.

With a rotating Forward line consisting of Poppy, Roughead, Nash, Gunners, Wingers, Lewis, Bruest, Ollie, O'brien we can score Heavily

If you were selecting a side on form alone then Roughead wouldn’t come into selection calculations.

Football is played a lot above the shoulders though

If Roughead was to play against the suns the boys would be totally switched on and a 100 plus win would occur.

Added to this if Rough plays the crowd goes from 25000 fans to 45-50000 fans.

I’m expecting Roughead to be named

You've switched my mind on this and I agree with you now. Rough to play.

If we can’t score 100 this week (and assuming we don’t against WCE), it will be the first time we haven’t done so in a season since 1965
But it’s hardly comparable even to recent years. Scoring has been significantly lower this year right through the competition and combined with our kickings yips in many games doesn’t help.
