Agree. This idea they won’t ” fall back in love” with their clubs is also cliched ‘balony’.

All Daniher and Papley need to do is mature a little. Most young men do that when confronted with a touch of responsibility.

The AFL stock market: Trade period

The WACA is a test ground. There will still be tests at the WACA. Now, explain why it is irrelevant. They’ve even played Tests there in the past. You may not know that if you are not West Australian.

Australia's Test opening candidates are not stepping up

That’s not the article, though. Tell me about Joe’s form this season.

You seem to be on this other conversation as well.

Perhaps so, but that is not the conversation. If you write off Harris, Renshaw and Bancroft for their starts to the Shield season, why would you not apply the same measure to Burns?

Our selectors are far more reliable and consistent than the Roar participants.

It up to him to succeed at Shield level. To be part of the collapse he has participated in today is not a “pick me” statement.

I guess if you can’t find success in the context of this conversation, you can start another conversation which suits you.

We are talking about how these players have started this season. Burns has not done well.

You guys seem to be running another conversation.

He is a more than reasonable medium quick bowler, too, pounding it down from his 6’6″ frame.

The players to watch at the T20 World Cup Qualifier

I had a 404 and my father rallied a 203 wagon in the late 50s.

Stephen Silvagni has failed Carlton

I don’t. He is in his right place in the pecking order. It’s up to Burns to improve his position.

Have you ever seen a fat surfer? If he’s back in Lorne, he’ll be fine.

Mitch’s issues were not Jack’s issues. That’s another problem with a blanket ‘mental illness’ label.

Three big winners from the trade period

Isn’t Burns failing too?

Susannah Hoffs…now there’s another story.

I don’t get it.

Jesse Hogan, Alex Pearce and Stephen Hill say hello.

It gets better.

Dons’ delicate Daniher dance

It gets better. My 67th year has been my favourite. Haven’t got any further yet.

This writing people off because of recent “mental health issue” is strange. The mind and spirit is more resilient than a crook hammy, calf or shoulder.

Taking time off to sort some issues is a strength, not a weakness. It speaks of awareness and connection. Such emotional honesty will only strengthen a team.

Steven is the biggest ‘win’ of the trade period. More so than Kelly or Hill…or Jon Patton (who will probably be right up there as the best forward in the comp in 2020).

Three big winners from the trade period

Burns is out of form. Even Warner outscored him last weekend.

Paine is not under pressure in any way.

Sorry Spanner, I think Paul is on the money.

Imagine alll the stats boys calling for Tom Cooper’s test selection around Christmas because his average will still be around 80. They will have forgotten what led to it.

You didn’t rank his batting? He was outstanding. Struck the ball so cleanly and bowled quite quickly.

Martin is very much worth a first rounder. GC coaching ( especially Dew) just don’t know how to nurture or deploy the talent av available to them.

Whoever picks him up (he would blossom at Melbourne) will have the best get of the off season.

Hey! Leave Renault’s alone. I had 3 Renault 16TS and 3 Renault 12s.

Carlton has had 2 Eddie Betts, though. You only get them again ‘cos they’re good…or you’re nostalgic.
