Thanks Caesar, and interested in your comments about Balta. He is fast and highly skilled and I think he is still big chance to come in against the pies, either for Broad or Nank.

No Tom Melbourne. The horse that promised the world , but didn’t deliver
$1.4m and came within half a length of winning The Epsom?

The Epsom is probably the best mile handicap in the land. I'd argue winning it is analogous to a BOG in a GF.

They even run it on GF day. Norm Smith.

If you said to me now, I can guarantee Stackman will come 2nd in the Norm Smith (one guess who comes first?)

I'd take it.

Short memories. 18 clubs passed on Stackman, arguably the best (inarguably the 2nd best) kid in the land,

cause he ate a bucket of KFC.

He has a spew and falls short in one training run and he's on skid row ?

and M.Conti is no instagram socialite. She's an AA footballer.

c'mon fellas..

I don't think anyone is saying he's on skid row, I think they're saying he's got a bit of catching up to do, that's all.

Id say he's had some catching up to do his whole life. doesn't seem to hold him back.

not meaning to have a go at anyone.

Just countering that Stackman will be a star of the competition for the next decade.

I dont reckon JR8 would have ran a pace setting lap for Ben Lennon?

maybe he would've?

I think a duck would have been a good pace setter for Benny L

Why he had a poor pre season and was pantsed against the Maggots in the praccie match.

Nank is apparantly training very well now and fitter, so he wont miss.

Broad wont miss either, he's become an important member of the side and also played pretty well in round 1, and very well in the pre season.

Noah is gonna have to wait he had his chance pre season and didn't do what was required to take it early doors.

Don't think Broady misses again, unless he gets his phone out, after a few drinks celebrating 2020 premiership.

Tom Melbourne falling just short on the big stage time after time: you sound like a Collingwood supporter.

I'd like a training update on Higgo. I expect he's been putting in extra hard yards in iso, and would love a track watcher to confirm where he's coming in the testing.
Higgo was the cleanest of the 8 forwards in greasy conditions on Saturday.

Tom Melbourne won 5 from his first 6 starts including an Albury Cup in the mud where he nearly went over the outside fence by memory . Then won one from next 45 starts

Both Broad and Nank have been very good for us but I still feel Balta is the better player. He is faster and a better kick.
He is going to be handy down back if Cox gets away on us and better around the ground.
Not to worried about his pre season He is now fit and I think a player with great potential who deserves a chance at this point in the season. He is one who has the class to come up, and fit in at the higher level.
Neither Broad nor Nank played well against Carlton.
If Houli is available maybe he and Noah will come in.

So he's like Collingwood winning premierships during the War and Depression years but getting the wobbles near the finishing post after that. It's a bit unfair on @eZyT to paint Stackman with the same brush.
