    Is it from the same source who said Menz was still struggling?

    From the horses mouth!
    And I'm still 100% confident Menzel is very far behind midfield fitness and dreams of him playing midfield are just that

    So you heard from Tom himself, or was it in that interview AFC made (I didn't hear it)?

    Also, I know you can't say who the Menzel source is, but is it a more reputable source than TSR's (who was a family friend and current player)?

    Will be interesting to see who's right

    Hardly. Cheney was very good last year, and Brown impacted by injury. Its not a no brainer by any means.

    It all depends on how much (if at all) Doedee progresses. We know that Cheney can perform, at least. Despite that, I'd be willing to forgo a little less proven quality for some games in '17 if it means Doedee can progress quicker and be a better player than Cheney by 2018.

    Cheney was okay last year. If we can't imagine an upgrade on him though, we are in serious trouble. Brown was absolutely hampered by injury, but it's not exactly been resoundingly good news on that front.

    I would certainly be hoping that a low draft pick like Doedee who has been groomed for half back would be earmarked for one of those spots.

    They were pretty good in a team that was ultimately crushed by real contenders when it mattered. Can't go with the same players who have minimal or no scope for improvement.

    Well, unless we were happy with last season which I actually suspect we were.

    I 100% expect Doedee to play mostly SANFL this season unless we pick up a heap of injuries.

    With Cheney, Seedsman and Brown's limited pre-season, I wouldn't be surprised if Doedee is in round 1 contention

    I agree with you, we must change how we operate, but not holding my breath.

    I think most of us are hoping he can play forward this year, surely his fitness is up to scratch for that.

    As for Doedee are you saying he thinks he's being taught incorrectly?

    Apparently Menzel couldn't even blow out the candles on his birthday cake

    EXCLUSIVE photo of Troy Menzel in his spare time seems to confirm what DJ75 has been saying

    How the hell do we recruit a guy in the first round If there was a need to teach him how to kick?

    Why do we recruit so many goofy kicking styles in the first place?

    We are not picking from the top of the available draftees.

    I'd rather draft someone with a goofy but solid (or fixable) kicking style who wins contests.

    Anyway Milera is a great kick.

    Would not surprise at all if Doedees in the side Rd 1 given given Cheney and Brown have had restricted preseasons.

    Might be all he needs to cement a spot.

    "I guess we have to pick Mackay every week now."
    "We simply won't be able to cut Thompson from the list for the foreseeable future.. until the club has the football department cap to buy more permanent marker remover."
