Rd 19 - GWS vs Essendon

The Red Sash weekly ramble  (Follow @The _Red_Sash on Twitter)
Round 19 - Essendon VS The Giants
 

A hard few weeks…

It hasn’t been easy for members over the past few weeks - 61,000 of us…..and I suspect it won’t get any easier over the upcoming weeks as the season winds down. 
As light hearted as I would like to be – I feel extremely sorry for the players – it is now obvious they are not enjoying their football with another front page Herald Sun story – placing even more mental pressure on the boys. 
All we can do as members is stand by the club and players as one especially as we lead into the WADA appeal later this year.
The positives are that there seems to be no fresh evidence, no smoking gun and Hirdy barely rates a mention through the 1294 pages of documentation.
In amid all of this we hope Dustin Fletcher can get out in one of the last 3 games so we can give our champion the send off he deserves.
We also hope that the young players, Langford, Laverde, Edwards continue to learn and get valuable game time for 2016.  
Langford has really impressed me so far. He is a highly skilled player with outstanding ball-handling skills and excellent agility for a player of his size, his best game was the standout performance in Round 17 against Port, when he collected 16 disposals. He knows how to kick goals and will be a player of the future.
Laverde also looks to have the goods. His few games show him to be a smooth-moving and creative medium forward/midfielder with neat disposal skills. He’s been able to turn opponents inside out with his agility and looks dangerous around goals. He will have a strong overhead mark as time goes one and will be difficult to match-up when forward or in the midfield.
Edwards is a tall and exciting flanker with good foot skills, he has the ability to break open lines and wehave seen some great running goals from him this year, the club has worked closely with him to fast-track his progress. The development coaches and line coaches – in particular the development department – have spent a lot of time with Shaun in developing his mental talent and mental skills. 

The Red Sash Medal looks all but won with Dyson maintain his lead over the past 3 weeks. Although not in his best form he continues to poll, Stants has finshed the year well as has BJ. 
Keep the faith….See you at the footy...
