I can't wait for the Reid cycle to begin.

He comes in to the side, will play a great game and kick a bag.

His advocates say, "See, he's a massive asset to our side"

Then he goes missing for weeks on end.

His critics say, "See, he is inconsistent and hopeless"

Round and round we go, might get myself a sick bag this time

Who says he needs a great game for me to think he's a massive asset :p

Terrible news about Hewett. Season going from bad to worse in many regards. Back operations so often end up making things worse.
I'd be very cautious if I were him about committing to that path without exhausting other options.

Apparently played inside in the scratch matches and someone said he isn’t an inside player and won’t put his body on the line...
Maybe he won't put his body on the line in a scratch match cause I've seen him do it too many times to count in his senior games. Chunky guy, built low to the ground. Lets see how he goes.

Do you ever not bash Reid? The rinse and repeat of fat jokes against Taylor?

Forgot to mention this.

FIVE CHANGES!!!
That's a quarter of the team, it's going to be hard to win many games when that many new players are coming in. I hope our injuries end soon, because we really can't sustain 5 changes a week.
Early back surgery... Maybe we're chasing that top 2 pick. Don't blame them tbh. More games into kids, better shot at next year, better pick this year. Stuffed up the ticket buying process so probably can't sit with my dad on Sat, but stoked for this weekend anyway. If the only game I get to see this year is us vs Hawks and a Ling debut I'll take that.

I honestly don't get the hate on Bell? Guy has played a whopping 2 senior games in his career. Time to write him off..wtf
My views on him are actually less about his senior games, where he was unremarkable, and more about his NEAFL form, which I've never rated at all. It doesn't bode well for his chances at the highest level.

I don’t hate Bell, I am just not sure he has any stand out qualities that will see him make the grade (having seen a fair bit of him in the weekly NEAFL games on YouTube).

I will be really pleased if I am wrong!

Bulged disc does NOT require an op....but it can lay you up for three weeks...depending on core strength and level of nerve inflammation. Ive had one.

Hewitt runs our on ball brigade a bit dry...Florent will have to lift.

I think swap Reid and Aliir - Aliir is more prepared to stand under the ball...and we can’t guarantee silver service..,which is why Blakey is struggling.

Haywood looks like a loss..,after weeks of drivel, last week he was useful. Blakey can breathe a sigh of relief.

As for running half backs...hopefully Mills can get off the chain...COR is a tuff one to replace.

Just wait

Not up to it
Bell is pretty decent at making a late run into the 50m arc. In the reserves he kicked a few goals getting behind the defence or being open in the 50m arc.

I am just happy to see what Bell offers in the midfield. Hopefully a bit of hardness at the contest and mobility to get there. Warner looks a talented inside mid but does not seem as much of a running midfielder.

I am happy for players like Bell to get a few games. If we don't play them, we won't know.

And don't forget... Caesar's opinions are absolute! - he used to be a midfield coach
