    But they are facts. Weightman has broken his collar bone and dislocated his elbow through careless body contact. It has impacted on his recent performance. Or am I the only one noticing.

    Three of them had little to work with, but JUH looked very good in those circumstances.
    Now Jamarra is someone I'm very very excited about.

    We are very Naughton conscious.

    It's because he demands the ball. I don't think I have ever seen Schache demand the ball to be kicked to him, or made his presence felt in the forward line. You have to lead and be in the right spot so the ball is kicked to you. Agree sometimes we bomb it in to the Fwd line looking for a big speccy from Naughton, but we are also ranked second as a team in marks inside 50. (we were number one, but Geelong truncing North over took us). Which means we find targets.

    We find targets more regularly but since we have the most entries, we probably miss more targets than anyone.

    Our F50 entries against good teams is not efficient despite what you may find in stats.

    We are simply flat track bullies who dine out on very poor teams.

    Or we're just lacking the personnel to compete with the very good teams.

    That is not my point.

    There are enough kicks into the forward line for Schache to make his presence felt, if he had the ability.

    Against hawthorn, open forward line, decent entries. Contested marks:

    JUH 4, Naughton 3, Schache 3.

    the top three for contested marks for the dogs.

    Usually our entries into the 50 m arc are poor and only Naughton and English are good enough to beat a large pack.

    Pretty difficult with the way we congest our own forward line most of the time.

    You can accept that if you like.

    My view that we have allowed teams like Carlton, Freo, Sydney and St Kilda to outperform us is not acceptable.

    We have some of the best talent going around, we are just not utilising our talent effectively.

    Our talent got us to being ahead half way through a grand final. Poor selection decisions in the last 3 home and away games left the team out of gas at that point.
