Some posters have been ringing the changes - White out, Byrne in, Buckley out, Daisy in.

How will we know when we have enough depth? Or do you ever reach that stage of being able to cover your losses? It does feel good to have options (thanks largely to a shortish injury list) when you consider at times in the recent past we had something like 25 players to choose a team from.

For where our team is at we have depth, but it is all relative. Due to Bolton's reset and the list turnover we have had in the past few years we still have a lot of unproven talent.

I thought the thread was about dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane.

You need at least thirty players that can play serious AFL football and then you want to have the right types to cover some that may go down.
I'd say we have about 20-22 for now and many, many unknowns, including; Smith, Sumner, Jaksch, Plowman, DVR, Whiley etc.

We were getting to the point that our balance looked O.K. but unfortunately, the quality wasn't.
