    Brett and Jack probably have three optimal seasons left.
    The clock is ticking. No time for mediocrity. We do not have aeons.
    I will be shattered if they do not win a flag, it will probably take some years to process and absorb. The equivalent would be Len Hayes at St Kilda, he was the heart and soul. At the end of the day, it was probably Brett's delayed entry into the season which cost us a top four berth. He is crucial.

    The prospect is agonising, Black. I hope we can deliver in time for two loyal stalwarts. God Bless RFC.

    I too like him forward, but he played a few great games at full back. Apart from his marking and spoiling his long kick outs were a delight. He is also a thinker, he handballs well and to the right options, most of the time. I think his versatility will be a huge bonus, eventually.

    Sorry, Black, I forgot to mention earlier my family's middle name is almost identical to Deledio. So there may be a connection indeed. I gather it is Northern Italian. Ciao

    Griffo unfortunately gets exposed pretty quickly down back. Emergency fill in or ruckman dropping back is the only time I'd like to see him in the backline.

    He is however our best backup ruck option in my opinion.

    As for TV - all the best for the 2016 season.

    Yeah, it did come out as random. I replied off the cuff, not realising there were heaps more posts afterwards. Not the first time I've buggered that up.

    For the record, I don't really think Althom is a dud. And I don't want him delisted.

    What I was trying to do was replicate Althoms stand against Yarran, by holding up the mirror. Kind of lost any traction in the randomness.

    I just get a bit bent out if shape with unfounded negativity. I'd like to give the bloke (Yarran) a go.

    I do ! Acorn hasn't contributed a single meaningful post in his Y&B career. Absolutely he should be delisted.

    :D

    All the great decisions made in the world are based on reliable information and astute intuition.
    Acorn is a list clogger. His future lies on a VFL fan forum.




    I am joking ok.

    50 years of watching the Tiges and noting what is missing today as compared to what we had in 67,69, 73, 74 and to a lesser extent 80? I shall leave you to continue to post your dross.
