Thread: Team Selection R1 v Bulldogs

  1. #1

    Team Selection R1 v Bulldogs

    Going the early call for Round 1 selection. On the cautionary side that both Buddy & Menzel don't come up, here's my prediction:

    B: Thurlow Grundy Allir (2nd Ruck)
    HB: Lloyd Rampe McVeigh
    C: Florent Kennedy Jones
    HF: Hewitt Dawson Heeney
    FF: Ronke Reid Papely
    R: Sinclair Parker Mills

    Int: Clarke, Cunningham, Blakey, Hayward

    Emerg: Fox, O'Roirdan, McInerney, Melican

    Melican looked rusty in the JLT & needs time in NEAFL to polish up.
    Same with McCartin who missed JLT.
    Jack needs to prove himself in NEAFL as he is no longer an auto selection.

    This is ridiculous. The back of these guernseys clashes with ours being red with white numbering. We may have to wear our clash strip as a result. Supporters have great affinity with their club's guernseys but these days the AFL seems to be prepared to ignore that in favour of commercial dollars. No integrity or respect of tradition whatsoever.

    I'm now wondering what other Marvel themed 'entertainment', will be inflicted on those who turn up to the game?

    I think O'Riordan deserves a spot, he's played well in both JLT matches....Thurlow to the emergencies.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    Fans who go to the game should be given free Oxycontin.



    Make that Fentanyl.

    A cup of tea, some fentanyl and a nice lie down.

    Fair call. I thought Thurlow showed enough as well but couldn't fit both for team balance so they'll be fighting for spot in the 22 imo. Alternatively Blakey and Hayward could be fighting for a spot (Blakey having the honours from what I saw in the JLT) to accomodate both Thurlow and O'Riordan, but I rather have Hayward for that X factor with Buddy likely to miss.

    Umm who cares?

    Its a jumper for one match the and Doggies will make a few $$'s from it. Don't really understand all of the angst about it

    Without tradition, sport becomes pretty meaningless.

    If we were talking 8-9 games then yeah sure its selling out your tradition, but I just don't see how any true fan could become disenfranchised by an alternative jumper for one game

    What do you think about our indigenous jumper and our rainbow socks?
