That has to be one of the weakest performances I've seen from Fremantle against the weakest Richmond side on paper in the last 2 years. Not only no Rance, no Cotchin, no Reiwoldt but also down two players on the bench in the second half, but NO WORRIES for Richmond. Time to weild the axe. Brayshaw needs to be dropped not living up to anything like a number 2 pick, Cerra only performing marginally better and I don't think our forward line is working with 3 talls and I'm not convinced about Taberner. He makes crucial mistakes under pressure and I think the other talls are better when the ball hits the deck.

Have to bring in Connor Blakely for Brayshaw and McCarthy for Tabs. Maybe Darcy comes in for Cox and Lobb plays more forward. Ross Lyon should be feeling pressure to deliver the goods.

Brayshaw been entirely unconvincing in his career so far and has been living off his draft number, has to prove himself in the wafl surely now. Throw him against Claremont’s midfield this week, make him prove himself.
I thought you may have had Travis Colyer in your sights DD, he was pretty bad yesterday, the other recruit Conca hasn’t brought much either.
I thought Lobb was again good in the ruck and as I heard Paul Hasleby say a couple weeks ago he’s a more natural player in the ruck than he his up forward, and he’s not a very good kick at goal. Means Darcy could become a very highly paid wafl player or more likely trade bait.

Agree Tiger Colyer has delivered little. Conca has been ok and we need his experience and bigger body. We have to persist with him. I like Switowski he's got genuine pace, applies good pressure and can kick goals. We desperately need a fit Connor Blakely and if he ever gets fit I'm not sure where Griffen Logue fits into the picture. Is he a big bodied mid, a key backman which we seem to have covered? All I know is he was another first round pick we have got very little out of.

I like Nyhuis and Duman but where do they all fit? Can one of those play on the wing or go through the midfield? Both first and second round draftees Sam Sturt and Luke Valente have had injury effected starts. Lots of questions waiting for answers.

Watched the game on a sicky today due to bad flu. I agree with a lot said. Unbelievable that Blackely didn't come in. Brayshaw, Conca, Colyer and Cerra always ordinary. Its a shame to say it but Fyfe well down on previous. Another game where Pearce got beaten and we lost. He is very important to us.
Victorians still laugh at West Aussies because of the way we bailed out the vfl and then allowed it to be called it the AFL!

Not "delivered little" -Dick Dynasty. Ross is not prepared to put games into youngsters. He wants wins not development. If 2019 tabernar is not proof of that than I don't know what is. Yes he had a few injuries but he should have an extra 25+ AFL games in him. Easily most improved Docker.

Unfortunately for logue he will suffer the same fate, as will Darcy. Wins not sustainable success, massive difference.
