    Agree 100%. And as part of this, make the tough decision around certain players now that they will not be part of the rebuild. One thing I noticed yesterday was that we lack pace. KB brought Ling, Stoddart, Foote and Stephens in to address this yet none can get a run. If they're not ready, then they definitely won't get ready just training and playing scratch matches. The shortened quarters should suit these guys at this stage of their career. They all should be given a block of games to show us what their potential. Gould showed in the SANFL that he can penetrate either with run or kick if HB, another area we are deficient in. Get him in and perhaps Mills can be finally freed up to play on ball.

    Mostly on the strength of his three goals against Essendon, when he actually looked pretty dangerous.

    You'll notice the rest of the ins are young.

    Hope their excuses are valid otherwise very precious and entitled. Melbourne footy bubble does create some deluded egos.

    Bad news keeps coming. McCartin still experiencing mild concussion symptoms. Hopefully he makes a full recovery soon.

    Houli and Edwards. Both soon to become dads.
    It's very hard to live in a studio apartment in San Jose with a man who's learning to play violin. That's what she told the police when she handed them the empty revolver.

    Prestia just went off with what looks like a knee as well. We might have half a chance against them next week

    Sounds as if Prestia injury is serious (possible ACL). Plus Cotchin and Nankervis also ended match on injury bench. Miserable on injury front for a few clubs now.

    "Prestia was assisted off the ground with an ankle injury and was distraught on the bench after the game.

    Cotchin suggested post game that he’d injured his hamstring again.

    Earlier, ruckman Toby Nankervis appeared to twist his lower leg during the third term and didn’t take any part in the last quarter of the game.

    Star goalkicker Tom Lynch appeared to have an issue with his hand, while Nathan Broad dislocated a finger in the second term."

    They are not a tall team at key positions either, so a better match up, physically at least.

    Shane Edwards and Bachar Houli are the two senior players not going to the hub. Houli has a very recent newborn and Edwards has one due in August.

    Fair enough I think.

    Unless we start to play some real talent we will get blown away. No use playing blokes who will never be AFL standard. Richmond, in their 2017 premiership year, played youngsters with talent and slowly weeded out all the dross. It may be that some of our fav players could be victims of coaching for a premiership line up. So be it.
