    Comrade, on a totally unrelated matter, what are your thoughts on getting a WOOF naughty corner in place?

    Isn't Jeemak already there? I don't like the idea of Comrade and Jeemak together.

    Re: Gary Buckenara analyses Western Bulldogs’ list after the 2020 season

    Buckenara is usually pretty good with his annual write up, though has missed the ball as pretty much everyone has pointed out on a lot of elements.

    Is he marking Daniel down due to his height?

    All clubs marked Daniel down due to his height and in reality, Daniel is really only suitable for a couple of different on-field roles, so it's hard to make him an A grader given that he needs the right role in the right structure to flourish, even though he's clearly an A grader in his current role here.

    So what you're saying is he's an A grader.

    For us yes. For every AFL-list, probably not, unless they're willing to make sacrifices to bring out the best in him.

    Interesting.

    Not saying you're wrong though someone good enough to be made All Australian not rated elite is a bit counter intuitive and I sort of see the reasoning for it.

    Thanks for posting.
    I don't want Ben Brown. Seems a bit one dimensional.

    We're a very even list, Bont is probably the only player in the league's top 20 but we'd have 10 in the top 100
    Given that we can't afford gaps like no ruck or crumber
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Re: Gary Buckenara analyses Western Bulldogs’ list after the 2020 season

    The only interesting suggestion in there was Levi Casboult. I know he was often the second (sometimes first) ruck for the Blues this year.

    31 next season, 201cm and 101kg.
    Will be a free agent at the end of 2021.
    Averaged 1.8 contested marks per game (7th in AFL for total in 2020), 16 goals 8 behinds for the season, and averaged 5 hitouts per game.

    His best game as a ruckman in 2020 was round one v Tigers. 16 hitouts, 16 disposals, 2 goals and a couple of clearances.

    Could he be our two year English helper? Is he an upgrade on Trengrove (yes for me, better mark and more mobile). I doubt he would cost much at his age, and with Blues having McKay, De Koning and Pittonet.

    Why not chase de Koning then?

    Casboult has showed in recent years you can improve as a footballer even when you are 27. His goal kicking accuracy is proof of that and with a trend for many clubs to go into games with just one ruckman that forwards like him that can fill in for 5 minute bursts per quarter as a ruck man can be invaluable for the set-up of sides.
    Unless we move Naughton or Bruce to the back line I just can't see why he would be interested in coming to us and why we would be interested in him
