  1. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 10 v Gold Coast at Mars on Saturday Morning

    It's out of Sweet or Martin for the ruck battle this week.
    Sweet doesn't have to be better than Martin to win selection, just be 'nearly as good' because we gain more in the long run.

    If we could somehow afford it, I would. Whether he would work with Bruce is a sticking point but Josh Bruce will be a 30 year old coming off an ACL when he plays AFL again.

    The first quarter will tell the tale. If we kick the first couple, the doubts will creep into their play.

    May actually be worth starting Libba & Dunks in the centre for the first bounce as our...

    Yep - say what you will about his disposal, but he was our best performer at VFL level and he's gotten two games on the back of that.

    Essendon are basically our search for a KPF for 20 years, always looking for a single messiah to save them rather than acknowledge that multiple people need to help all at once.

    Of that 'fire sale', no club touched any of them with a 10 foot pole, save for Melbourne jumping on a Ben Brown trade after he demanded a bigger deal.

    McComb's not getting dropped - coaches would love a guy with 18 pressure acts in the front half.

    I'll give you Menegola, Ted Richards, and perhaps even Podsiadly who kicked on late in their 20s. It's a damn short list though.
  24. Re: Always Right - Match Committee Thread RD 7 vs Essendon

    More than the midget fleet who surrounded Hannan.
    Cordy will at least compete in the air in a contested situation. Marra (at this stage) and Schache, less faith.
  25. Re: Always Right - Match Committee Thread RD 7 vs Essendon

    Naughts chopping out in the ruck/resting leaving us with Hannan as the only marking target in the F50 (undersized).
    They just kept intercept marking and getting clean ball out of defence.

    Is Sweet even playing this week or does he take another week off with concussion? He'd definitely need a solid bit of VFL from under his belt before being considered.

    A lot of us are glad Martin is still with us, although for some of us we were hoping it was just in a mentoring capacity and we'd have another AFL standard ruckman on the list to support English.
