We will end up with twenty players on the wing trying to hide and find them an easier role. Docherty needs to go back to the twos to  rediscover form and confidence, his fumbling ways won't work in the middle or hiding him on a wing vs decent players.
I like Doc but he needs rebuilding in the twos...
Are we focussing too much on one or two mistakes and ignoring the 85% good stuff he does?

Have we let our expectation of his perfection become the enemy of his good?

Why does he need to meet a higher standard than any other AFL footballer?

Doc will never get dropped.

 He'll go close to winning our B&F.

LP....I reckon Walsh would be a fair way in front at this point of the season. Weitering and McKay probably fighting it out for the minor positions.

Yet Doc will go close, he'll be right up there because even when the others are having a downer he's been quite consistent.

Which reminds me, did I read somewhere the club's official B&F voting rules have changed for 2021 season?

He will get nowhere near it IMO.

And that my friend is why we will be where we are.

Keep it simple this week, maximum effort, maximum response to last few weeks dismal displays. Stand up for yourselves and your coach.

Probably tells a story.....think Dermott Brereton suggested Docs fumbles have proved very costly.
Doc is very brave on and off the field and I respect him a lot just for being out on the park but I want the old Doc back
who was reliable, confident and not making those critical fumbles.
A spell in the twos building his game and mindset back to what it was is worth it IMO....its no shame to be playing twos and fans would understand why he is there. We are actually eroding his confidence by leaving him in the seniors and having scrutiny from the likes of Brereton appearing in the press. Not sure the captain duties are doing him any good either and I'd be relieving him of that burden too and giving it to Weitering.

Only going on what I've read to date but would like to see Honey get a run this week....maybe with Eddie having a rest? Hard to see Honey playing along with Owies and Betts all in the same side.

Parks possibly goes out injured this week? Has Williamson done enough to earn a recall?

Don't think Eddie will be rested against Adelaide. Probably Fogarty if we want to try someone like Honey or even Carroll? Parks out injured so they will either bring in SPS or Murphy and shuffle the deck chairs down back. Who knows. Frankly finding it hard to care.

Agree Rock, given how we're travelling, it doesnt really matter. Problems aren't at the selection table.

We definitely DO have problems at the selection table, but thats not our ONLY problem.

So wind back to last Thurs, in your mind, what mistakes were made at the selection table?
