Interesting that the Saints wheelchair team got SM messages from two St Kilda people leading up to their finals campaign: coach Brett Ratten and random player Jack Steele.

I think 95% of us are on the same page that it is time for a change.

Personally, I would rather let Steele be Steele. For me, the job should go to either Billings or Hanners

Sorry mate , i normally like your posts but i cant have Billings who looks like he is going to cry all the time and im guessing has never given anyone a spray and Hanners who has failed to prove he can stay on the park .
Members , Roma , Steele , take your pick

Membrey my first option but would love if Dougal Howard got the gig. Really leaves his heart on the field.

Not a huge fan of giving it to Steele, let him be our best player and improve without the weight of the captaincy on his shoulders

That’s assuming he won’t improve as a player with the captaincy.

For me, it makes complete sense for it to be Steele, and would love Membrey and Howard to be vice captains.

I'm a big believer in having leaders in each part of the ground.

Leadership group:

D: Howard (VC), Geary
M: Steele (C), Ross
F: Membrey (VC), Billings

Membrey looked barely AFL standard this year. I'd make Dougal Howard the captain. He's got the right attitude. One thing I noticed in the player highlights was that when ever one of our players were targeted he was first there to stand up for them. He plays with a bit of intensity that would be pretty good too. Steele is good at the on-field but he seems a bit quiet for the media stuff.
