If i hear one more time Kelly has gone past him i will throw up.
Kelly is no more then Peverell was to Essendon when they were dominating.
I reckon Kelly is a bit overated.
Cant wait to see how he goes at freo.
At west coast he will be the same player he is at Geelong.
Where was he in the elimination final last year??

Cotchin is a wonderful leader with a proud record.I wonder if next year it is time for Dusty?
Whilst on Cotchy and Dusty, in the book by Konrad Marshall, 'Yellow & Black', Cotch stated in his 2017 end of season review that his goal was to be like Dusty when going forward, unfortunately he hasn't been able to add that string to his bow and when he does get it is close to the worst set shot in the team.
Great player is our Cotch, a bit baffled why he is not more dangerous when forward.

Great read that book :) . I guess it would have to be a confidence thing and perhaps not being able (or allowed) to put in the extra workload for practising his set shots. Cotch is such a battering ram of a player it must be taking a toll on his body and it certainly would be great is he could develop his set shot skills a little more and extend his career. I really would like to see the Cotchin / Martin centre square/ team song buddies combination continue for several more years

Probably been mentioned previously, just watching the promo to U18 final about to start at the aptly renamed Chernobyl stadium.
Shows the greats back when they were kids and then the big time.
Left the best til last...
Dusty ....Dusty..... Dusty .....! (Only decent bit of commentary Zemplis has ever done!)

Dusty purring along at the moment...... would love him to absolutely stick it to GWS.
If the snorter is back, hopefully Cholly, who appears to love Dustin, is playing, and can finish the old codger off for good!

Slow startbut still pretty damn good. Judged on very high standards. I wish he would have a shot from 50-55 out instead of passing it

Seemed a bit quiet but when he got the ball in traffic he seems to have that ability to just break free which is fabulous.

He is getting more space.

However, to my eyes, the space he is getting is at the defensive side of the pack. I think that in 2017 he was able to power through the pack into space more often, leading to quicker and more damaging disposals. This year he seems to be turning towards the defensive side and while still creating danger it is often a few seconds slower which reduces his attacking options. Perhaps the comp is working out how to limit his effectiveness down from god-like to just f'ken good. :)

We need Dusty to get back to his awesome best. People defending him because of past deeds, but we must face reality that he’s way down on what we know he can do. The champion status belongs to players who perform at the top year upon year. He’s been at the very top but is not top 20 atm.
Dusty hits his straps, and we’re a lot closer to winning the Premiership.

Definitely been a bit quieter again the past few weeks, after having a very good patch before that. So long as he's firing at the pointy end is the main thing..
