    Maynard butchered the last 2 minutes of grand final and is battling to retain his spot this year.

    Id tell you Jason Montagna sucked in the preliminary, but did he even play?

    Jason Bazinga sucks at footy and this thread confirms!

    Castagna is the luckiest person to play footy, did his dad suck off Dimma and the recruiters or something? Actually frustrating watching him play.

    Jarryd Blair vibes, both premiership players but probably the 22nd best player in each side. Jarryd Blair was alot smaller and didn’t struggle to find the pill like Costagna does though.

    This is a legit true story, but i remember speaking to Travis Johnstone out one night, and he said chicks would throw themselves at Godders because of his rugged wood chopper looks. Solidly built fella but head on him like a smashed crab.


    **** i loved Godders though! That left foot snap on QB one year was just pure awesomeness.

    Funny reading how he is a good pickup for Richmond. Plays like Tarzan looks like Jane.

    Thatll change when they finally get hit with the injury stick , had a ridiculous run with injuries last two seasons. They will flop when their depth is tested

    Dean Terlich worth a shout. I even handballed him a ball at training once and the bloke fumbled it...

    By the way.

    Maynards prelim final opponent.(No goals)

    Maynard in the prelim

    I’d say Maynards spot is pretty safe, unless Caddy had the flu aswell? Tobey Greene was his man the week before, i’d suggest checking out his numbers aswell.

    Maynard is a very average footballer at best. If you have the right athleticism, then playing a negating game on one opponent is really not that hard.

    i remember when Fantasia kicked 5 goals on Maynard in a game a couple of years ago, yet he still pushed his chest out and tried to start fights. Quite embarrassing really.

    Also, should we mention that Maynard got out muscled by a smaller and weaker Rioli, which ultimately cost Collingwood the Grandfinal?

    I was more talking about the last 2 minutes of GF. 1/ The Sheed mark, either Maynard misread the flight of the ball or was out muscled by Rioli.2/ After the center bounce, the ball gets knocked to Maynard who handballs to no one in particular in a panic and 3/His kick in from full back with a minute to go- went about 45meters straight to Shuey,why did he kick in when Sidebottom was next to him? A bad 2 mins in anyones book.Probably cost you the GF in all honesty without being a smartarse.

    Can confirm.

    Well over a decade ago I saw Godders out for dinner with a young lady.

    I was astonished at the contrast.

    She was a AFL premiership winning captain level, he was Montrose reserves first emergency such was the league differential.

    Huh ..... You've been waiting for me??
    The exciting life of a St.Kilda fan.
    What a cool club filled with cool people.
    Hang in there, a flag could be around the corner I reckon.

    Brayden Maynard is a jet. Embarrassing nomination.

    That was so beyond his capabilities I still question it actually happened. The crowd was almost silent when it happened.

    Chad "flatline" Fletcher ....
    he was a good player but his last 3 years at West Coast he really should hand back his match payments for once Judd and Cousins went Kerr stepped up Fletcher just became a crab i remember being at a Melb vs WCE game at the MCG and that game Fletcher litterally ran away from a contest right infront of us ....

    Like a few nominations in this thread, ludicrous.

    Excellent player for the majority of his career.

    He definitely went a year or two longer than he should have.
