    How many times did I see Suban lower his eyes and kick to advantage. I still can't believe it. He was really good.

    I agree with this. Unless we get a bargain, hit the draft. Can top up once we have played finals again.

    Positives.

    COX - if he is this good in his first few as a forward, imagine how good of a CHB he must be...

    He's always been a very good kick. His problem was only getting 4 kicks a game. If he can keep up the output he'll be very valuable.

    And with those 4 kicks he would go for distance every time. He choose good options for most of the game. Very pleasing to see.

    While its being said on here a bit I think Cox has gone under the radar due to the games Darcy has played. While I've been hurt before, Cox looks like he could be that Riewoldt type player we have been trying to turn Tabs into. Smart, great user of the football for an 18 year old (18 guys and gals, he's 18) KPF and he moves around the ground so well while have the old sticky mits. His first half today was something special and the only reason he didnt tear the game apart was because of the bad corkie he copped early in the third

    Whatever Google Maps Tells Me
    I'm one to generally keep a lid on it when it comes to young players, but I can't remember the last time I was so excited to see a player in Darcy and Cox. Of course they've got a ways to got, but they are bona fide natural footballers. Cox needs to mature a bit to get with the pace of the game (not just that run down which should not have happened), but that is likely to come. Darcy needs to build an ability to work the length of the field from beginning to end - but those things can be done. Footy smarts, basic AFL level skills and hunger for the contests all in a tall package, that doesn't come so easy as we've seen. So excited.

    I find it easier to just blame Neale for not telling him to move it on, keeps the hype levels high and Neale has infinite brownie points anyway

    Best game plan you mean! Perfect mix of accelerating the defenders by conceding heaps of i50's, building mid and fwd tanks by making them flood and slingshot, whilst securing draft picks. I love it!!!

    Another huge positive is that chase down on Cox will stick with him forever. He learnt that lesson early which stop him doing it in a game that really matters.

    We are likely to have pick 2,3 or 4.

    I hope by selling the farm your not referring to that's pick??

    I am happy to take the risk and throw that pick to GC , if Charlie Cameron really interested in going back to QLD and work out a three way deal .
    Freo record at getting thing right in second and third is better than first round.

    Hopefully we get to see the Walter/Bennell show for a handful of games this year.

    If this rebuild is going to end in a premiership one day these two will be a massive part of it. Two A graders that can rotate between the forward line and midfield and both know how to kick a goal or 6.

    Joao Just posted a great point in the autopsy thread that I think deserves another mention.

    Remember last year and even the end of 2015. We just couldn't work the ball out the backline however hard we tried. 90% of the time we would end up long bombing down the line because we couldn't work the ball out by hand/foot. Our last 4-5 games have shown the we've overcome that now, Blakely/Weller/Ryan are moving the ball well out the backline and taking the risky kicks down the corridor. Not sure adding Spurr helps this but staying on the positive trend at least the kids coming through are leading the way.

    The issue has moved further up field now to the last kick inside 50. While the delivery today was poor I still think the forward setup is the bigger issue. But it's clear we have improved on our biggest issue last year. We're now one of the biggest users of the corridor out the backline. Progress is being made.

    It was the last Derby at Subi.

    I'm thinking that place is a jinx.
