    Sinclair always looks like he is just about got the game sorted. He seems to read the game quite well and get to where the ball is going to be but then his hands seem to let him down. I think he has the potential to be a very good ruck but ATM he just can't seem to get it together.

    Yep, we are down on the agro level if both McGlynn and Laidler are out.

    Do you think anything has been done since? NOPE

    And Hawthorn should be belted from pilar to post about the whole issue as they are making a @@@@ ton from them, but nooo lets just turn the other way, like most things the hawks do.

    You know what would be awesome? If Andrews or Baird came out and banned them out of the blue like Baird did with dog racing last week. I wonder then how "family" clubs like Hawthron will be able to survive on memberships alone.
    Sadly, there is no hope in hades of that happening - just as footy clubs are addicted to their revenue, governments are even more addicted to them. I worked quite a lot on the 'Wilkie reforms' with my job at that time, and trying to get anything through at that stage was like pulling teeth - there is little hope of it ever happening. Very sad - and like you Kilroy I'd love to see them banned.

    McGlynn got plenty of the ball on Saturday in the ressies game, but I wasn't particularly impressed by him. He did some good stuff, but I didn't see it as a 'must pick me' sort of game either.

    I'd like to see McGlynn put together a few strong performances in the reserves. When McGlynn and Papley both play it seems to dull their combined effectiveness, whereas Rose offers something different.

    Selection is down to a number of 1v1's.

    Laidler or allir
    Papley or mcglynn
    Reid or richards
    Cunningham or towers
    Nainsmith or nankervis

    My take:

    Aliir keeps his spot based on a strong performance
    Papley
    Richards (Reid N/A due to injury)
    Towers
    Naismith did well and keeps his spot.

    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Love your cynicism - but quite true. A good problem to have for Clarkson.

    I am just stating the obvious.

    Umpiring has been as terrible this past round as it has all year, but apparently we should all accept it as part of the game. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Id love to see a side refuse to play the last quarter if the umpiring was obviously biased, but since we didnt do it when goodes was booed or barely made a whimper while cola, rentention allowance, trade bans and academies are ripped from us, i doubt you'll get leadership from the swans on this.

    But by all means keep up the fight.

    I couldn't think of anything worse and more embarrassing for the club.

    Didn't Sri Lanka do this in the OD Cricket against Australia about 20 years ago?
