    Rougheads ruck work was disguised a bit due to the third man up. I think this was also picked out by coaches Macca and Bevo.

    Re: Well Ruck Me.

    Given Bevo's track record of brilliant positional changes, and Roughy being a fantastic club-man, it seems a pity something couldn't have been made of his contract. Don't like to see him the black and white I guess, playing well and good luck to him.

    Anyway, what's the view of Cox? Too old?

    As a last resort back-up option, on low salary, perhaps.
    There are many others I'd prefer though

    Mason Cox's highlights 2020. Link
    Is he really that bad?
    Some funny stuff-ups and kicking action is a bit odd, but also a very hard match-up and does some good things.


    Around the ground, would be great seeing Caleb light him up.
    And he didn't grow up playing footy so maybe still has a lot of improvement?
    Might get him for an absolute bargain. It's not like he can go back to America that easily.

    Not going to be easy to get a good one.

    I’d grab him for marketing alone. Become the US team, have a 4th July game, our colours work well, add some stars to sell a special guernsey. Of course it would all be at Footscray as I can’t imagine him playing much AFL, but he seems a decent enough fella to have around.

    Re: Well Ruck Me.

    Yeah nah.

    Collingwood don't have a half decent tall forward and he still can't get a game. He just does absolutely nothing too often.

    Gone are the days washed up talls finish their careers at the Bulldogs. Sorry Sockeye.

    Well he's more of a utility player, time in the ruck and time forward. But point taken.

    I'd take an inanimate carbon rod over Cox.
