    There were a few factors in the Motlop trade, he would not have made my top 7 midfielders, even as a Mid/Fwd at best an emergency but in saying that you need good emergency playing to be in with a chance so i probabaly would have kept him. Howe went from a defender to a midfielder so i was short a quality defender and Harbrow was a good fit considering I traded in Bruce to fill Motlop's void. Still annoys me no end as he could have been worth more as a fwd when trading. How could CD get it so wrong ???

    Here's my first of the new season......we need @HOLKY to take over organising the playing schedule again for next season and let someone else come up against Dusty in the first game. Seeing as I did the draw again this year, I need to give myself an uppercut, as Dusty (against Carlton) has destroyed the Barcrawlers two years in a row, scoring 159 last year and 139 this year...
    It's time for a change.....:(:(:(:(:(:(

    Well, Amon was orange light when I put him in, so I was within the rules but I guess I can't argue with absolute power.

    I’m not trying to stir up trouble mate but you have already admitted to attempting to play the loophole.

    I admitted to playing unethically, (still a vice a need to work on though) but by lockout I only had green and orange light players in my team as per the rules.

    I saw that the green light / orange light thing was in your favour @HOLKY, even though it was obvious that you made a change to get an advantage (whether you knew that Amon was playing in the SANFL or not). This was actually making it hard for me to punish you for playing the loophole, because with the way the rule is worded, there's enough ambiguity.
    But then you came and flat-out admitted to playing the loophole, and while its great that you told the truth straight up (something the Australian Cricket team could learn from), we can't have coaches going against the rules.
    I think we need to re-word the rule going forward, so that it unambiguously states that loopholing is not allowed. In the meantime, the rule states that emergencies are to be used for genuine emergencies, while the spirit of the rule is that they are not to be used as a "free hit" and "second chance" to get a good score.
    We've never allowed loopholes to be used. We have a single fixed lockout (on normal weekends) for this very reason.

    So, I got rid of two players that were just stinking it up in my team. This allowed me to bring in some youth for the future.

    SD Thompson and J Geary - currently averaging 96 and 114 respectively. Whilst most of the youth, friggin donuts. FML.

    This really upsets me...

    (think about the words actually going through my head)

    I know the games are not until midweek, and so are nearly 1 week away right now, but surely the AFL could get these clubs to name squads so that we as fans atleast have an idea who is likely to play. I'm sure I've said it before, and I'll say it again - with all the money tied up in betting and fantasy football competitions right now, the AFL owes it to the patrons to atleast have some transparency with team selections (and injuries).
    Its absolutely ridiculous!

    To be honest @bryzza i rarely read the match reports. Doesn’t bother me to much.

    But what I’m here for is to whinge about Jack Newnes....yeah he was injured this week but come on man show me something. Being a saints fan that I am he drives me nuts, I’m not sure he has anything else. I think he has reached his peak. Grrrr
    Frustrated Saints fan :mad:

    Agree 100%. I feel like he is one of the worst culprits of bombing the footy into our forward line and hoping for the best. Could still be a great player but hasn't shown it recently

    The best parts of Geelong or North games is the Scott brothers reactions; always cracks me up.
