    Always Right Match Committee Thread - 2021 AFL Grand Final vs Melbourne

    Welcome to the Always Right Match Committee Thread. The Match Committee threads has been named after long time WOOF member Always Right who tragically passed away in March 2018.

    If you were on the Western Bulldogs match committee what changes would you make after our epic Preliminary Final win against against Port Adelaide for the Grand Final against Melbourne?

    For those new to these threads, please give a brief explanation for your changes ... this would add a lot of value to the discussion.

    In:

    Weightman, Keath

    Out:

    VDM, Cordy


    Sub From: Scott, VDM, Richards



    Notes: Keath is confirmed as fit. Martin only played 68% so the week off should be enough to recharge his batteries.

    VDM only tightness isn't it?

    I thought he was excellent. Geez it's a hard decision to make. JJ played his best game since the GF too.
    Sam Power is my religion.

    It’s brutal. No one deserves to be out after that performance. Thought Cordy was great but reality is, Weightman and Keath come in. I think it’s Cordy and Smith/VDM out.

    Tough decisions. Keath & Weightman are no brainders.

    Cordy probably out with Gardner’s height for Ben Brown.

    I think a Weightman comes in for either VDM and JJ. The only other potential is R. Smith and he plays a very different role.

    This is brutality..
    Cordy was rock solid tonight..but he's not Keath.

    Weightman is in, but wow. JJ and VDM they had some stellar moments tonight.
    I reckon VDM makes way. so stiff.

    I genuinely feel for the match committee this week. There will be at least two heartbreaks, made even harder by the performance across the board tonight.

    Not one player who is in the gun to make way for Keath or Weightman played a bad game tonight.

    It's going to be cruel.

    Yep, Weightman in for VDM, with VDM pushing out to medical sub. Unfortunately Anthony Scott misses.

    The tough one really is between Zaine and Roarke. One will be very very unlucky. To not go with Roarke would mean we’re sacrificing an important role player, whereas Cordy’s experience and hardness would be an asset, not to mention a back up if Keath goes down.

    Maybe Cordy becomes the medical sub in place of VDM?

    Cordy is a no brainer. Played well tonight.

    Both Laith and JJ played but would leave JJ in mainly due to his experience but also because he has regained his swagger.

    Thought Cordy was really good tonight but he'd be my pick to make way for Keath.

    At the other end as others have stated it's a fight between JJ and Vandermeer for who has to be sub. I was super happy with Vandermeers game tonight so probably relegate JJ, but he was really good and has performed pretty well in past GFs so it's a real toss of the coin.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    The curve ball. Last time we played them at the MCG, we went in with Keath, Cordy & Schache as defenders for McDonald, Brown and Jackson/Gawn. So we though we needed three KPDs. Then Keath got injured and it was just Schache & Cordy. Then we won. So the question I guess is do we NEED a third KPD?
