Best 22 for a team that made last years prelim final and is 5-1 indicates some sort of quality but that aside, best 22 does still mean they are better than the players that have replaced them who aren’t in the best 22.

You do realise both teams could make finals and not meet again?

In our way you say, time will tell but it looks unlikely we will meet again.

I don’t need to convince you of anything, you agreed the are best 22 players – basic logic looks after the rest

“Oh, they may well be in their best 22 but” So they would make the best 22 of a 2023 preliminary finalist who is 5-1 in 2024 BUT they really aren’t any good? 😂

” Docherty has barely played” has 168 games under his belt played 23 in 2023 and 22 in 2022.

” Motlop is also sporadic.” Only played 2 seasons before this for 33 of 47 possible games – his last 9 games after a spell in the 2’s yielded 14 goals from 9 games – one might suggest that a third year player might improve on his output in the prior years?

“Martin is sporadic,” – certainly had his fair share of injuries but I don’t think you could find anyone who would say we aren’t a much better side with him in it.

“McGovern is a struggler.” Been very good since moving down back last year.

After Motlop back into the side in round 18 last year he kicked 14 goals in 9 games, he had a really strong pre-season and was looking like having a breakout year – his is very much missed.

Martin averaged 1.3 goals, 0.4 goal assists and 2.4 tackles a game last year – a real key in our turnaround in the second half of the year.

Probably not, but I don’t really have to get anywhere near my best to get the better of you Don

“that Freo was in that 2016- 2029 period” Good to see you have excuses ready for the next 5 years of failure.
“We’re talking about 10-15 best 22.” Of course you are – and none of those best 22 players could be “easily replaced” at all, but I suppose that is the thing about having depth on your list – if you have it anyone is easily replaced.

His Brother was involved in the Blues football department for a while

“When you have 10-15 out each week, you can’t compete.”

Blues had 13 on their injury list last week – including Cerra, Docherty, Saad, Martin, McGovern, Motlop & Fogarty out of the best 22 and then Marchbank, Cuningham & Silvagni on the fringe of that best 22 – they managed to do alright.

Not really, just find it interesting that they are very quick to pot the Blues (last week, they had only had scrappy wins and their ball movement was a real problem) this week it is crickets.

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

The Blues are averaging 99.5 points per game, Freo are averaging 76.3

Yeah odd that, Carlton beating the unbeaten premiership favourites and Freo getting belted by the Eagles really should have got the same amount of praise.

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

Yeah, I am enjoying that a bit but it just makes me laugh when Lloyd and Barrett have both said on that show that they don’t have Carlton in the top 4, last week they potted the Blues ball movement, said they only had “scrappy wins” and Curnow and McKay kept “bumping into each other” and then this week, immediately after banging on about how Barrett was being proved right when he predicted the cats to play in the GF they simply gloss over Carlton beating the premiership favourite despite a massive injury list as.

I must say i have been highly sceptical on the benefits of having both rucks in the same team but it worked brilliantly on the weekend and I think they will continue it this weekend.

Hopefully Cerra is back this week and Williams get up but if they don’t come in we won’t have a lot of option to bring someone in – I would think Cincotta would come in from Williams, Binns has been in good form but plays a role that Acres, Hollands & Cotterell have covered and other than that we had Moir, Lemmey and O’keefe who are progressing well but a long way off AFL

Just watched this weeks access all areas – 24 minute show – 6 minutes on North and Hawthorn 5 minutes on Collingwood & Port – less than 2 minutes on the Blues Giants, half of which was on the Greene suspension.

Not sure the media knows how to react to Carlton being good.

Monster Tribunal night confirmed as Giants challenge Greene, Hogan bans, Eagles appeal star's dangerous tackle

When the Wright incident happened a Bombers supporter posted an image of Wright where he had turned and braced before he had even left the ground and watching live it looked to me that he had made a decision to “make him earn it” from a long way out.

Exactly

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

No

Strange Fyfe’s game went unnoticed when his side got belted by a team most have tipped for the bottom 4

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

Yep Greene’s incident was much closer to Forgarty/Fyfe than Wright – 1 week seems correct

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

Yep but in those days the umpires wouldn’t give players as long, allow them to just throw the ball out and wouldn’t pay free kicks to players who were actually holding the ball in

Six Points: Greene lucky to only get a week, 2024's two best wins, and the moment that sums up woeful Roos

So how would you “re @ Rd” a player who is simply lying starfished on top of the ball?

If the player doesn’t want actually do anything it is impossible to “re t@rd” him from doing something

Blues were in front for 69 minutes, GWS 50

Also, why were GWS somehow off the boil?

My fault, stopped reading that point when he started on the Cats
