As i said int he trade thread we're a young enough side now, we need to look at good footballers who are ready to go. That's how we'll make up the gap.

ten years of ******* around has ended. It should have ended with a public lynching, but I suppose they are now politically incorrect?
No worries mate, let’s paint some black onto them; would that suit your sense of proportional response?

I’m coming to the conclusion that Brad’s efforts to add another string to Paul Ahern’s bow a couple of off seasons ago resulted in his bow being smashed completely. Perhaps, he needs to get back to basics. Otherwise, we’ll just end up having to cut him loose. That would be a shame, given how he shaped up in his first 10 games.

Mind you sympkin is named in the other fwd pocket so not sure that's where they will start....
Sure, but the point I was making that he was named on-field and therefore safe from being omitted when the final side is released, rather than being in the 'possible omission' pack on the extended bench.


The only thing that ruins all this is that xerri is pronounced sherry as opposed to cherry! Which doesn't fit as well unfort!



Time to pour myself a large glass of Dry Xerri and try to forget that I was ever witness to such highly-relevant pedantry.

(Changes made after the horrible loss to Adelaide in 2013)

Brad Scott expressed his anger in the press conference and said he would push players and those that did well played.

He goes and makes a forced change and drops a rookie in Majak Daw.

The inherent problem was talk, but no walk. Players would get away with inconsistent performances.

Shaw expressed a lot of disappointment in his presser as well but look what happened this time.

And the Sydney game isn't as bad as the capitulation to Adelaide.

Shaw ain't mucking around indeed.

If adding another string to his bow was to eat sh*t and drink piss, hes done well! The kid needs to get fit

and if he doesnt get fit, i’d delist him.. hes quite frankly clogging the list At this point in time

I’m assuming you’ve got some sort of personal relationship and inside knowledge about Paul’s behaviour. If what you said is the case, he certainly won’t last under Scamper. In fact, I’m completely flabbergasted that Scamper has allowed him to be selected (even permitting him to be an emergency) under the circumstances you’ve outlined.
