    Given that GC had a better draft class to choose from, how did GWS end up with the far better midfield and KPP stocks?

    One of the most horrific and untimely injuries of all time, he was in brownlow medal form iirc. I read somewhere he always had complications (arthritis maybe) afterwards.

    He was always a gun for us, used to kick a few bags and was always dangerous inside 50.

    I'd say it just shows how speculative drafting, especially for KPP players, is. It's always easier to judge looking back

    Put this in here after half the forum crying over me having a thread...

    I always have them pop into my head and then I forget them so i'll just whack them in here. You can ignore them or comment, do whatever u want.

    I'll start off with these 3 I thought of today...


    1. The Eagles injuries are going to benefit them in their quest for a flag.

    Firstly, our midfield is going to improve their kicking inside 50. Prior to our forward line injuries, we were getting away with poor delivery. It was coming in much to high and without any penetration. Now, with a small forward line we have been forced to improve this, and it will benefit us greatly in September. Secondly, the improvement to our squad (look at point 2). Hill, Hams, Lycett, Neates etc are now getting games are able to put what they learn in training into match practice. It gives them a better chance of performing under pressure before finals.

    2. A club's squad is more important then ever. With games played at higher intensity, more injuries, more teams in the comp and the comp just being more taxing on players as a whole, the team with the better squad will win the flag more often than ever. Just like the EPL, the team with the best squad wins!

    3. Clubs underrating the tagging of defenders. Shannon Hurn. Tag him out of a game and you are halfway to beating the Eagles imo. It's the same with Fletcher, O'Brien and Scarlett. Why don't teams realise this!?

    Well, for starters Fletcher and more specifically O'Brien aren't worth tagging.

    Put a damaging player on Fletcher, and use the player when attacking. Instead of just peeling off he then has to think about his man. You're half way to beating him.

    O'Brien, well, put any AFL listed player on him and put him under pressure. Cannot handle it.

    Both are vital to their teams set up. Fletcher has made a career out of doing what he wants.

    Should probably have Heath Shaw not O'Brien, but it's still the same point.

    One thing I've pondered recently is the idea of putting Dawes to CHB and Tarrant, when fit back to FF.

    Instruct Dawes to punch at every contest, wrestle, man-handle, do whatever you have to do. Tarrant can actually take a mark and is better at every aspect of football.

    Reid
    Dawes

    Cloke
    Tarrant

    Thoughts?

    A lot is understated with the fact GWS got some guys who had been in the system for a few years (palmer, scully and ward) + older veterans. I think that is the advantage they have over the GC.
    How does it feel to be Tottenham? How does it feel to be small? You sold Bale. We signed Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil, Mesut Özil.

    With Nathan Brown out, it makes it harder, but nah I don't think this will work.

    Shows just important Leigh Brown was in 2010.

    Nathan Brown to miss 2-4 weeks.

    On a different note, Colin Sylvia has been all types of shit this season, one of the biggest wastes of talent in the game.

    That's okay, it'll actually make me money when I trade one of my forward rookies in DT to Sylvia when he's $210k.

    What a difference 12 months make, this time last year (or very close to it) Melbourne smashed the Crows by 96 points.

    If Brisbane lose to GWS this week, will that be the end of Vossy?

    It would be the end of the beginning to the end.

    So yes, but would take another 6 or so weeks before he's gone.

    To be replaced by Mark Harvey, might as well stick with Voss.
