I spoke briefly to Jaxon Cahill at half-time of the late-season game against Perth at Leederville.
Jaxon had just reinjured himself in the reserves in his second game back after being sidelined due to injury three months earlier.
I sensed he was frustrated by recurring injuries rather than anything to do with the club.
If Jaxon can get his body right - and assuming he wants to continue playing - he has a lot to offer the league side in defence.

YEP ADGM, he is frustrated and disgruntled I sensed a bit of both, injuries and club direction but hey we will just have to wait and see!

i'm not close to any player but remember talking to someone who said that ajang and sebit had walked out of the club at that game. and cahill had to be talked into staying.sebit came back the following week.we lost too many players last year before the season and if  we keep losing too many more it won't matter who we recruit we will be a average team.

I wasn’t sure if Barnard was the best choice moving forward. But for the good of the club the white ants and whingers need to be moved on. Cahill has been given every opportunity so should consider moving clubs if he can’t be a club first person. We all need to be pulling in the same direction.

It is not abt being a white ant or whinging in some cases , it is abt a perception amongst players, support staff, and supporters/members that there were better decisions that should have and could have been made on and off the field.

For players it is abt being told one thing and another happening, it is abt players clearly out of form or depth and being persisted with and others not being given the real opportunity. If it is one player then let then go, if it is a few then perhaps there is an issue, Also it is not rewarding loyalty for those seeking to develop and play league football and clearly that happened.

It is abt being a supporter or members and being able to criticise decisions and plans that are clearly failing in that supporters opinion.

Everyone wants the club to be successful and viable and we will all have to wait and see whether or not that comes about next season

Very sensible post Grump good reading. Some players on any list are just depth players and no point giving them league games out of pity. I can’t think of any players on our list at the moment that warranted more league opportunity. Be interested in your thoughts on that topic. Cox was my pick on talent but needs to do the pre season.

Spot on Grump, there’s a number of boys, who have been loyal during and after the alignment, they import below average players from other clubs and ammos, , play them week after week in a number positions until they can get them a kick

Be interested SD if you can throw some names up to solidify your argument.  It’s a bit pointless having these discussions without naming the players in question.

Boules & Underwood were both judged on one game in the league and ......... players like Simpson who clearly lacks the consistency to be effective for a whole game and whole season but folk will not see past the last minute stuff, Robertson who was in my opinion a complete and utter waste of money over the whole season. 

As for loyalty, we knew late in the season that it was beyond us despite the utterances from the coach and we had a player whose loyalty was unquestionable playing week in week out for 99 games (turned out to be 100 games) but oh well we will just ignore that and make him and other players loyal to him feel like crap abt the regime! Now you can say that his loyalty is not sufficient to pick him but sorry I think it is!

Boules could of played more games but I think long term the slow approach will benefit him. 
Underwood got himself super fit credit to him, the only position he can play at senior level is tagger due to lack of mobility. Poor teams tag good teams play football. 
Simpson won the goal kicking and the only other half decent tall forward on the list is Merritt. I don’t like Simpson going forward myself too slow when it hits the ground. 
Robbo was an under-performer absolutely hopefully he improves. 
I certainly wouldn’t have complained if Young or Allsop played as a reward for loyalty.
