Horrible decision to drop Graham. His form has been good and was starting to get back to his late 2017 form.
Not sure what they are thinking here.
Maybe they have a plan for the Gee Whiz that they want to try out with Caddy also out we are going to try and burn Gee Whizz off the MCG I reckon with speed.

My mail is we are experimenting with all out attack, while also stretching them for speed all over the ground and height in the forward line. Don't forget, we are tweaking a gameplan plus structure aimed at knocking off Cats, Eagles, Pies in finals.

Yep we are loading the midfield with speed and x factor. Stack Shed Shai and George to spend more time through the middle.

Speed is great but you need to have a balance with some hard nosed footballers. Graham’s pressure in the last few weeks has been bloody good.

Okay - I'm a slow learner .......................

But do I take it that 'Zippadee' is simply a trouble-maker? (eg ignore his posts/block them - he just tries to create argument?)

I think we needed at least one of Graham or Caddy to play. I reckon we are one inside mid short. Interesting selections. Maybe Vlaustin will play that rotation mid role instead. I am not sure if Houli, Short and Eggy can all play in the one backline against a top team.

Completely agree. He is a tackling and pressure machine. Also, in a GF he kicks 3 goals on the opposition best midfielder! FFS? B Ellis, does not shine the shoes of Graham. I am pissed off with his omission. B Ellis gives away goals. Graham does not.:mad:

Graham is slow and an average user and average decision maker. Peaked in game 5. Yep he tackles (generally because he sits on players) but he is a low possession low impact mid. Glad we r looking to improve on him, although thought it would take Ross to return to see him dropped.

So it’s pedal to the metal time.

Attack is the new black.

Just look at WC vs Collingwood.

I swear, AFL coaches are a pack of bleating sheep.

Whatever. Just so happens we suddenly have the most sublimely skilled midfield in the comp and two of the best key forwards going around.

Strap yourselves in, boys and girls.

been a while since I've bagged the match committee. Graham stiff as buggery. Should have been out Short in Jack. I'm stunned.

Shorty is there to stay.

someone had to make room for Jack and on form, I'd say Graham was one of 4-5 they would have debated, and shorty wouldn't have been one of 'em.

Bit stiff, but no outrage from me.

I like the speed attack theories flying about.

edit, the swear filter censored the word for what you do in an aeroplane, rhymes with crying
