AO capped at 15k currently but SA government pushing for 35k. I think they will end up in the middle with 25k
Launceston capped at 10k apparently

A lot of people selling the Dogs short. They were top 4 for the majority of the year and even this week they only played probably 20 minutes of good football and lost by under a kick to one of the flag favourites. They are a more than capable team and I’d be absolutely shocked if we pinched this one

No wonder. They are cooked. Bruce has gone down and their structure is now rooted. If they put English into the ruck Naughton is on his own and he's struggling now that Bruce is out. Take away English no goals. If they leave English up forward they look more dangerous but they start getting done in the clearances. Bont and McRae looked gassed as they haven't had a break. Teams are sitting on Libba. Treloar is running on eggshells as though his hammy is about to blow any minute and he's a turnstile tackler. Dunkley is coming back from a serious shoulder injury (and not his first either) and he is nowhere near his best. Hunter continues to spray the ball everywhere. On paper this group is very impressive but this team has run out of steam. I reckon Essendon will run all over them.

A lot of Dogs fans in Melbourne are very critical of English as a ruckman .. Why not keep him forward and play Sweet in ruck who whilst he's a bit of a battler at AFL level at least gives a good contest?
