Mail on the Freo board is that both Cox & Taberner are going to miss. It looks as though our defensive height issues aren't going to be so bad.
I’d be confident in Tazz v Hogan, McKay v Lobb and EVW vs Mcarthy. That doesn’t really expose us at all.

I would say, given that it hasn't responded to a few months off, or to the surgery, simply waiting for it to get better may never happen. There needs to be some sort of treatment for this. If we are trying different things, with all due respect to Ben's privacy, we as members and supporters would like to know, without the details.

For example, would be nice to hear something like "Given the problem hasn't gone away post surgery, we are now trying alternative treatment. This treatment is expected to take 8 weeks, and we will then asses how Ben has responded to it. All going well, he should be ready to start training by early May." Or something along these lines. Simply saying indefinite is crap.
Issue with sinuses is that surgery doesn’t always necessarily alleviate the problem. I’ve been tossing up having sinus surgery for years, it’s not guaranteed to fix the problem and in my case I utilise my sense of smell for work. In Bens case I’d say it’s more to do with cluster headaches and the way they effect internal balance, vision and concentration.

Not a simple fix this one

He's going down the standard "North young tall initiation routine". You should be used to it by now.

It's not the tall forwards I'm worried about.

The small/medium forwards and resting mids have the potential to pile on goals.

Stars have aligned pretty well there.

Indeed, and Lobb is only a threat based on reputation at this point.

I wouldn't expect him Hogan to give Tazz too much trouble inside 50 either. If he want's to go chasing kicks up on the wing then let him.

Yeah, Walters is clearly their most dangerous player forward of center. Feels like he carves us up every time too. Great player.

Also with Goldy up against Darcy as opposed to sandy, we should have an advantage there. Or at least not the difficulty that Sandilands poses for Goldy
Darcy will be a piece of cake for Goldy, run him and his burger belly around for 10 minutes and he's finished. Probably the most unfit player in the AFL
