well with one training and one game left down at the rams, and alot of disappointed lads on missing finals i might as well throw out a positive.
In a team that didn't kick huge scores or dominate this year, I must commend Brad Smith currently on 66 goals (in top4 of SFL) on a great year for an old fart.
Here's hoping that Dads Army, you blokes know who you are, go around again in the new decade.
And well done to Fossil, hanging up the whistle from the boundry afters TOO many years of service.
Must have been Bellys bump that finished him ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I was wondering if it was Dennis Sim. Does this mean he is giving the umpiring with the Panel away as well ?

What do you think Marion need next year to become more competitive and perhaps make the finals? Do you think that some blokes that were on contracts this year which did not deserve them will put there hand up again next year?

There's the first problem. Too much focus on contracts and noone playing for the love of the club. Couch was sensational this year and without him there was not much else. Depth at the club is struggling so i cant see any rapid improvement for 2010.

basically with no juniors its about keeping who we have and filling holes as they appear through off season recruitment.

what is promising, is that next year for the first time i can remember we will have a full junior program up and kicking with the majority of juniors from this year staying down. so in the not to distant future we will have kids coming through putting pressure on the senior sides.

on the off field situation, we have a full committee of dedicated people who are busting theyre ass' providing us everything and every opportunity to succeed. good coaches through the ranks and a great bunch of volunteer/supporters who put they're hand up whenever needed. all we need is some more of the senior players to show some of the same dedication as these people and help out, i think we can fast track the process and get back up the top.

but it aint gonna be a 1 year turn around. but were not gonna turn into richmond

Yes. Lets hope we can get some depth next year and a few old scholars come back to have a kick under EX.
We need another ruckman. After Wadey there is no-one. We need depth and serious talent through Bs so the internal pressure makes everyone perform every week and we need sexy cheerleaders for morale.

The old-timers love it this year, and I'd say they will all go around again.
We do have a core group of guys all around the 75 to 100 game mark and no-one in that 25 to 30 age bracket where most blokes hit their peak, so we need those grandpas just for experience!!

I reckon some new balls to train with would be nice.
Also some tall timber would be nice. However there are a couple of younger guys with talent - just need to keep em at the club.
have a solid midfield on their day, but need to work on fitness and perhaps get a gym session into them 3 times a week.
Also some other goal kickers would go well, only really 3 or 4 goal kickers consistently and more often than not muff is kicked to.
Thats my say. Bring on 2010
