Liston votes AFL listed player contribution club by club
Bendigo 67% Box Hill 53% Casey 93% !!!!!! Coburg 69% Collingwood 75% Geelong 94% N Ballarat 38% N Bullants 69% Sandringham 41% Werribee 49% Williamstown 30% Contibutions are lowest for 3 of the top 4 aligned sides. Of course N Ballarat and Werribee only have a part alignment. Makes Williamstown VFL players a fairly handy bunch, at least on paper, according to the umpires. Or does it speak to the lack of depth in the Bulldogs list?

It is an impressive stat as it is, but if the Bulldogs list is poor, then the performance of WIllamstown to get to the Prelim is more impressive. Their VFL list is what matters. I know other than Street, the Dolphins major concerns in planning for last week were all VFL players. Casey and Sandringham are interesting. Does not suggest good things for Casey next year.

As a Casey follower I was pleased with the performance of the VFL list. In particular, Chris Dunne and Alex Silvagni came on tremendously (and were stiff to be overlooked for the VFL team of the year), Evan Panozza kicked on into a senior player and Scott Macleod emerged into a handy type. James Wall was outstanding and Jimmy Taylor was typically committed and courageous. But there's no doubt the club needs to strengthen the squad.

I take more than a passing interest in Casey myself and agree about Dunne and Wall in particular. I reckon I have seen Silvagni play 10 or 12 times and I feel he is a good solid footballer but somewhat overrated. I wouldn't put him ahead of Meyer or Searl neither of whom made the team of the year either.

Not overly suprised with Caseys, Mathews battled with injury early and never really hit his straps, the Scorpions midfeild consisted of just about purely SAints listed blokes, which wasn't suprising after losing Harro, Nudge, Makey and Biagi in one season, the younger blokes of O'Bryan, MAcleaod, Pannoza wtc need a bigger tank and a bit more strength over the footy before any chance of a shift permanantly.

[quote="Dolphin"]Does not suggest good things for Casey next year.[/quote] As bad as this year was predicted by many of those on here? Our VFL list other than taylor (all of 24) were at or below 22. I would beg to differ.

Seeing Goodes is a about 5 tears older and plays around midfield a good effort for a fullback who dont really poll well. Silvagni will be a bigger improver next year allready accounted for some AFL scalps in his 1 st year at fullback.
