With spots under pressure will Short still be in our best 22 come W1 finals?

In regard to this question I will say one thing for Jayden.

He better hope like all hell that Marlion does not crank out some big games in the next 2 weeks.

Grover as well for that matter, cos Stackie also has to come back as well as Nank and the Skipper.

Then there is also Jack Ross who may make a claim for a return dependent upon how he goes in the VFL

There are gonna be casualties a couple of unlucky players are going to miss.

Short going by his form since returning which has been poor should be in the vulnerable group along with (from Sat nights team) Butler, Soldo, Chol, Baker, Caddy, Ellis, Graham and possibly Shai but I think Shai will be ok if he plays RFC Team footy, and I also think Ellis is holding his place for now with his running power.

Marlion and Grover and Stack are the players out of the 22 right now that can take his spot.

Grahams danger is Ross and Caddy. Caddys danger is Graham and Cotchin and Ross.

Chimpa, Nank and Stack are the 3 walk up starts that return.

The push for spots alone in these areas of the ground SHOULD help the side maintain the rage over the coming weeks.

One poor game could well end the chance of seeing September action.

Anyone who doesn't think Short is in our top 10 players in the modern game is on crack.

There's 15 that are better than Jayden without any trouble.

Best get me one also.

Actually just put a bulk order in might be a few takers.

Maybe I'll get some Short branded pipes. Might fund a Grand Final ticket

Then my gear isn't working for me, TGM, because Shorty is definitely not in my best ten Tiger players. Not even in my best 22.
Maybe your gear is too damn good if you think he is ... just sayin'.

Is this a trick? Have they renamed the VFL, The Modern Game?

If not, I think you should recant TGM.

maybe pair it back to 22 and salvage something?

Just go to a game and watch how the back men (especially at other clubs) chip it around and go nowhere, after 10 possessions they turn it over and get a goal scored against them.
Short never takes the easy option and always tries to go forward quickly (I think that might be how dimma wants us to play) to get it to our power forwards one out.
Compare this with Astbury Broad etc that almost always wait for the easy option and quite often the opportunity to move the ball quickly is lost.
Short may not be the best defender but Laird, Simpson, Lewis Jetta aren't either. You need a mix of defence with run and gun or you won't win.
