    Selecting players on their ability to fight rather than play football. Great.

    From what I see of him he struggles with positioning, seems to get to the wrong spots and maybe doesn't quite have the requisite intensity at times. So much potential though.

    He may have been doing it in the Brissy game but also taking marks at the same time.

    I really don't know, but it has to be something!

    With Lippa, he is clearly in the best 22 individual players but the clear issue is being a midfielder in such a mid deep side. I guess he is seen as losing out as he goes up against role guys. Don't get me wrong, I do not agree but it is not as simple as Lipsinki vs whoever as individual players.

    That might make sense if we hadn’t brought in a midfielder/winger in Lin. Pat gets treated very harshly as does Lewy, and it has to be contrasted in the persistent faith shown over the last couple of years in “project players.” I guess this time tomorrow we will know more about whether this has been an act of genius but even the sheer number of ins to a side playing good footy is perplexing.

    Maybe Young tired late in the game, so it could be just a break. I think he got caught out of position a few times, or was just a few fractions of a second short in his response as a defender.

    I think Cordy is going to be the enforcer. Throw a few shirt punches and get into their faces.

    Jong is the bigger body mid for Lipinski.

    Vandermeer in for one of the fwds ? I wonder if someone needs a rest or carrying a niggle ??


    A long list of emergencies, I wonder if there could be a last minute change? Bevo keeping everyone guessing.


    I hope our bigger body midfield is going to maul them and tackle the living daylights out of them ClaySmith/Picken style!

    McNeal was just starting to win me over, almost ot the point where I'd keep him in the team.. Then he gets dropped. And Scott, still in, still wondering why? Young given a spell after one AVERAGE game, I'm actually perplexed at these changes.

    We're going to show up to fight and GWS are gonna show up to play football, reversal of last year.

    The tough thing is we don't know why Pat and Lew seem to be marked harshly, if they are at all.

    On face value with Pat he's in the mix with an unusual amount of competition at the moment and it's pretty much always been the case that Bevo likes Jong (in 2016 he was starting 22 in the finals when we were healthy), so perhaps it's just a straight swap as a result of preference. I like Pat because he's clean with his hands and is a good kick whilst clearly putting on some size over the last year he's potentially not as reliable in the contest as he could be. Jong brings decent hands, strength in the contest but isn't as classy. Perhaps we're just looking for more grunt as we roll into the season?

    With Lew I hate using this as something to judge his footy on, however, every time I have seen him interviewed he just seems so young......(boom-tish). Seriously, I think he comes across as extremely talented but immature. You can see it in his body, and in the traits he brings onto the ground. He's not a pushover, though like a lot of younger and immature players he can do good things and still not seem reliable or consistent.

    McNeil is listed as managed. Bevo mentioned in press conference last week that we struggled to cover the ground later in the Suns game so I'd say we are utilising our depth.

    Given how well several of our guys played last night for Footscray, you'd like to think the side playing tonight against GWS will be extra motivated to hit their KPIs. Competition for spots hasn't been this strong for a long time.

    We’re going too well so don’t need to be used in place of anyone’s therapy at the moment. Can only hope we keep winning.

    Young reminds me of Cam Wight. Just so goddamn close to being an AFL footballer but just... not.
    He'll frustrate us all for the next few years.
