how about elton fwd and the beaner third tall in defense.
people do realise the bean can play down back. with astbury gone he is a possible solution.
Was at the ressies yesterday. Elton showed a bit down back. McBean is miles off it at VFL level atm. I'd go Elton for Astbury, Grimes for Chaplin. Get rid of Vickery for another mid rotation. Or just play a man down.

I like the idea of playing a man down
Might benefit us
That's how bad Vickery is

At least the others would know not to rely on him and may try a bit harder to cover the vacant spot

Saying McBean is miles off it? If you compared him to young Daniher at Ess could he be rawer of skinnier? They are persevering with Daniher, giving him confidence and it is starting to pay off. IMOHHHHHO we should be doing the same with McBean and give him a go.

Go read the bummer forums and how they bag the poor young kid, it's disgraceful and we would do the same if we played McBean

Yes that is very sad. The thing is you get games into kids give them confidence and soon they MAY blossom. Playing players 1 in 1 out week after week is shocking for their confidence and self belief.
If we have the confidence to draft them, then have the confidence to play them. Last year McBean would have played senior footy if he didn't injure his ankle. What has changed.?

Did Vickery sustain a metacarpal fracture during the game on Saturday? May help explain some of his inept marking attempts.

Next question.  Why wasn't he the one subbed out through injury?

Because even with a broken hand he had more chance of marking the ball than Hampson?

Vickery should be shopped at the end of the year.

Vickery should've been shopped at the end of 2011 when it was already obvious that he was a spud and he had currency and "potential".
