    Re: A little something to ponder...

    Is Elliot a small forward? He's more like a tall forward in a small body...I would think we need a crumber more than an Elliot type.

    Young out, English in.

    Why would our best 22 change now? After Liberatore gets a game under his belt he can come in for Hayes.

    It ain’t so.

    We are running ‘skinnier’ with the mid rotations over the past 6 weeks so - unless we get injuries - the balance is there.

    This is 100% correct. If we win, we are IN.

    No other side can knock us out of the top 8 if we win out. Adelaide can (of course) say the same thing...port and Freo and whoever else can suck it...

    So do I.

    But go back and watch the first half of the game vs GC or the first half vs Carlton.

    Allowing Sam Seaton to get 25 touches in a 1/2 of footy is NOT reflective of a structural issue.

    Yes.

    Roberts plays and plays back (Hipwood).
