    Re: The Moment: Rnd 15, 2022 vs Hawthorn

    It’s the Libba factor. Has there been another player that is so effective at causing opposition players to lose their minds? He not only drives them mad, he cuts them up with ball in hand. I wish he...
  2. Re: What if the ruck problem isn't a problem (ABC news story)

    It matters less about who is rucking and more about what happens when the number #1 is resting. If you have enough height forward, even if you take one away to fulfil some ruck minutes, you’re left...

    Re: Early Trade Rumours for 2022

    I’d be considering any low cost natural forwards. Haven’t seen enough of Honey to know if it’s worthwhile, but certainly the right type of player we should be seeking out.

    Going to need another big performance from Timmy. He’s quickly becoming our game changer. If he dominates, we’ll probably win. If he doesn’t, we’ll struggle. He’s that important now.

    Agree. Key defender and ruck/forward are absolute necessities (have been for the last 2 years). Draft the best pure forwards, these types tend to come in and make an impact earlier anyway.
