    Surely Bazlenka gets negative 9 for his haircut and head that’s worse than a cabbage as well!

    Kaine Balwin: siting on my bench since the start of the season; has barely played a game, so has hardly made any money.

    There’s always a more pressing trade, so this bloke will probably be still sitting on my bench come season’s end.

      Same here. It sucks seeing him sitting there each week. Such a waste.

    Melbourne seem to be imploding.

    Will this be another one-off premiership like the bulldogs?
