  1. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    So....what did you come back with?

    1. I don’t actually have an issue with whatever we decide...unless what we decide is just to roll with it and let the match-ups be as they may. At the end of...
  2. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    Pendlebury is an interesting one as he has been taking a bit of responsibility for the best opposition mid and I think you will see him go to Bont - we therefore wont get the chance to go at him.

  3. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    1/. Select Hayes and get him to do it. Liber is out so that's a pretty simple change.
    2/. Last chance corral for Dale. Challenge him to do it and rather than bring in Hayes bring in Young (Le...
  4. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    I don't like that plan.

    I like Hunter, but if Sidebottom is to be 'targeted' then whoever is given the task needs to go 'old school' and forget about winning the footy.
  5. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    West Coast ALWAYS target Sidebottom. And they seem to win every time.

    Why do you think Treloar should be the target? That break-away running? If so, do we actually need to bring someone in to...
  6. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    I don't think we can (or should) tag them all...pick one out of Treloar, Pendlebury and Sidebottom...shut them down and live with the consequences of the other two.

    Crozier seems to play his best...

    Can I do my weekly:

    - Who do we shut down out of Pendlebury, Sidebottom and Treloar and who does it?

    - Who is...
  8. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    You are right. Cordy is a KPP. If he isn't a KPP at AFL level, then he is a KPP at VFL level.

    I am not sure if this is fair.

    Since 2011, he's played less than 20-games only once. So he's durable.
    Since 2012, he's kicked less than 40-goals once (39 in 2014) when playing 20 games. In...
