    Re: Round 7

    Yes, he won it in 2016 and has just been elevated off the B rookie list this week for Jack Payne (LTI). He'll be up against McInerney for a spot.

    I think you've read that the wrong way but I love your intent.

    Think Ben was saying he was dropped for actually making defensive efforts as the team rule was "no defensive efforts".

    It's also possible I'm reading it wrong, in which case, play on.

    Campbell Brown actually nailed it on the AFL website with Essendon, they play "gentle, polite football". I read the quote and pretty much assumed it was about Essendon. They just have no moungrel in them which I guess if you go through their stars makes sense... Zaka, Heppell, Merrett (great tackler but not an animal if that makes sense), Daniher and Parish are all guys that just don't have that mean streak, they've got some amazing skills but I don't know if I've ever seen them bully someone.

    Said it since the preseason, it's why they need guys like Stringer and Smith in the midfield, I don't like they gave up on Stringer in the midfield so quickly, he gives them something they flat out don't have without him and only way he develops the consistency of effort is staying in there. Not even sure who they have on the list they can get it from, really Hurley is the only guy who brings it, even Goddard doesn't bring that characteristic (unless you're a teammate!).

    They'll basically keep winning games when the opponent lets them have their terms and they'll lose when they dont.

    FWIW, GWS are basically a more talented version of them as well so they're not the only team doing it and the Dogs have become a less talented version of it after winning a flag being the opposite.

    Re: Round 7

    Wogi nailed it ... would have preferred a one way runner like Zaharakis or Heppell to miss.

    All good ... so jaded with this team at the moment, and Guelfi's endeavour has been a shining light. Disappointing to see him miss while passengers like McNiece go again.

    Re: Round 7

    This wave of rookies is super important because these are the guys that you're going to be relying on during the bye rounds for better or worse.

    Re: Round 7

    Grigg out for Richmond with a hammy. They might bring in a second ruck this week.

    The AFL advises Mabior Chol has replaced Shaun Grigg (injured) in the Richmond 26-man squad for Sunday's Rd7 match v Fremantle at the MCG. The final 22 will be determined later today.

    Damn, no real loops for me now (nice problem to have). Will probably just VC Cogs but basically backing Titch in.
