    One last kick giant in the nuts from Roo coming.

    Wouldn't it be fitting if he extinguishes our last hope of making finals after breaking our hearts for 15 years.

    He didn't train today and is in serious doubt to even play. So in other words lock this in ^^^^.

    I like Nick Riewoldt but geez I'm happy he's retiring. So sick of his 20 uncontested marks against us every time we play them.

    Riewoldt ruled out. Boomer's swan song against us produced a career best 6 goals, so we can thank our lucky stars our joint-biggest nemesis of the century is out

    However, the stage is now set for Sam Gilbert to wind back the clock.

    Yeh it's got Ablett kicks 6 in first game forward for the cats written all over it. We'll still win by 10 goals though.

    Ablett could never be shit enough to be considered in this thread.

    This has Zac Smith resting forward and kicking 5 all over it.

    Edit- haha forgot we made the grandpa thread. Yeah its bloody ablett

    Reckon he'll sit it out if Viney is playing and there's any doubt on his fitness.

    Nev on Ablett for four quarters would be worth the price of admission alone.

    Only just discovered this thread, big fan already. With North having such a young list now, would superstition say that Melbourne might break the streak? What grandpas other than Waite do we really have now?

    Thompson? Does Goldy count?

    Thompson can stop you scoring, but he can't really dominate a game in his position. Goldy is still late 20s.

    Waite alone would be enough.

    I fully expect him to sit out any number of matches, plus perform indifferently against any number of teams, but somehow kick 7.0 against Melbourne.

    We will worry so much about Ben Brown that nobody will play on Waite for the first three quarters.

    We will review that strategy at 3 quarter time after he has kicked 9 goals.

    When Brad Scott said his best footy is ahead of him, he should have been more specific. He meant against the Dees only.

    Do we need to make a separate thread for cripples so Menzel has an appropriate place of worship?
