Any players in particular? Thought we had a few guys who were just going with no real impact on the overall result of the game.Today's game showed why you do not just play young blokes. A lot of our blokes struggled to get on top of VFL players. Yes they where a decent VFL side with some strong bodies but it highlights why simply giving players a game is not the best development tool.
I’ve never seen a club cock up a players development as much as ours. Ridley was putting up some excellent displays last year. This year he is only just going. The bloke is 21, should be demanding AFL selection but instead we haven’t settled what we are going to finally develop him into. It’s perplexingHow did Ridley go today?
Most of them. Not knocking them as they are young and learning but I thought it highlighted the fact that you can not just give players game time at the top level. If they are going to have trouble with a VFL side , albeit in a final then they are certainly going to struggle at the next level up. The up side is they should be better for the experience of playing in a tough contested final.Any players in particular?

It’s worrying that we are into a prelim and our oldest heads and VFL guys are propping up the team.
