Could be wrong but I think we're resting/rotating players without the added attention. Vlastuin returning gives Dylan a chance to recharge the batteries.
He's been moderately off & I reckon it's in part to Nick's absence.

Josh Bruce is an ugly piece of work. Dylan toweled him on Friday and what's Bruces response? cheap shops.
Cheap Shop Bruce the Mutt.
Bruce is a spud. That’s what players like him do when they get beaten, they play dirty to try and level the field.

The AFL history books will show Josh Bruce kicked 10 goals in a game. What an embarassment that is.

I wish this were true ToO. Cant imagine we'd do this because Dylan is a massive loss.
As if losing Cotch wasnt enough, Dylan is the backline leader. Massive impact on the game is Dylan being out.

Someone else posted to watch out for Hawkins elbows. I'd say watch out for Cameron to take out one of our defenders with a late marking attempt.

There was a point in the game where Bruce drags Grimes down after a marking contest (I think in the latter half of the 3rd) where Grimes clearly hits his head on the ground, and lies there stunned for a second. I actually watched the replay today, noticed it and thought 'Geez, it's lucky he didn't come off with concussion, it looked like one.'

I've never seen an instance of a football-related mystery concussion where no-one had any idea of how it occurred.

I suspect we are covering our arses here.

If that was Lynch that pushed an opposition players head into the ground as Bruce did, the media would be on it for days on end.
Also if you had any doubts the umpires this year have been crap, just look at the performance of the emergancy umpire from the Bulldogs game. Disaster.

The Josh Bruce game was interesting. Too much snipe and not enough jump at ball.

My daughter in-law called Bruce for running away from the ball after half time.

Spiteful players are usually soft and Bruce was all of that.

I think it could be career for Josh Battler. If he gets a focus for softness he will wilt and then disappear.

Tyrone Vickery got hit during a game by the mystery bus. Went down like a bag of Colvan chips.
Never attempt to explain the unexplainable.
Unless Josh Bruce is involved.

I think we will do whatever it takes,

to keep Melee Mansell in the side.

especially coming up against one of the grubbiest KPF duo's the game has known; Cameron and Hawkins.

I'd like us to play Nank at CHB and Marlion at FB this week.

I hate this pair of dirty *smile*

and I reckon when we are 3 goals in front half way through the last quarter, Dimma should blunder into Geelongs Coaching box,

offer his hand, and say 'to good'

Very concerning. If there wasn’t a single, high impact incident then it’s possible he’s been playing with sub-concussive symptoms for a few weeks without realising.

Could partially explain why he’s been a little bit off.

Takes at least a month of recovery before players look good again after a concussion, usually.

No rush to come back ASAP.

Good thought. Really hope that's not the case but may explain his mild drop in form.

Its harvest time at Mt.Macedon.

I reckon grimes is just rooted and forgot his alphabet.

another testament to our diversity,

that while bachar is ramadaning, Dylan is making huge vats of booze.
