    PICKS # 23 & 28

    We will probably decide on the night. As I understand it rookies are paid less and only get a one year contract. IF this is right we'll use 40 primary list spots if JT thinks the talent warrants it but won't if he doesn't.

    Let the Yawn Fest Begin

    I love NFL and I don't follow a team. I have lived in the States for two decent stints which helped me get across the line of understanding. i think if you get over the initial learning curve you'll grow to love it too. I'm not an officionado of all the set plays but I understand the rules and the basic strategies and it's very enjoyable. It's a completely different concept to AFL, much more structured. The H&A season of just 16 rounds then play-offs makes you hungry for more. I like baseball too and it's more immediately understandable and accessible but the absolute saturation coverage of the ridiculously long season with so many H&A games eventually put me off it a bit.

    2019 Ladder Predictions

    Agree the best teams just make it happen. Collingwood got to 3rd with only one win over a finals team, being us unfortunately. Then played a strong finals month. The Demons dropped 4-5 games by under 10 pts, Cats 2&3, Saints 2, Port 10(robbed) and Swans? We win 2or 3 of those and top four spot was ours!
  5. Having a quick look at the AFL tracker KK has been in the top 5 on the ground for total distance covered 6 times this year out of his 8 games. Lowest amount out of those 6 games was 13.8km and highest was 15.3km. Only a small sample and judging by the stats above his tank seems in good shape.

    Good start from the team thanks to @Wadda We Sing Thinkin' Big very impressive. Never in doubt and the horse looks a decent prospect.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 45 Declan Keilty

    Yes I'm keen to see Dec train with the forwards, he has got some form there at VFL level and tall depth forward is thin whereas tall depth back is deep and he's a long way back in the pecking order.
  8. Bugg is hopeless and doesn’t suit any positional needs. Mainly because he couldn’t settle in a position the last couple of years I think we’ll take 4 draft picks and then look for 2-3 mature age players who fill depth needs, depending on the draft those being: Forward/3rd ruck - ie. younger Pedersen Outside kicking/run - a new Bernie Vince/Lewis type Depth inside mid - a cut price Dom Tyson/Nath Jones Crumbing/pressure forward - a new Garlett We need to replace the guys who actually got games over the last 2 years. Not find replacements for guys like Bugg who was hardly picked all year
  9. Anyone got an idea of how many Km's KK covers/runs in an average game? Or should I say how many he is capable of covering.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    We shouldn't receive a bid on Bedford before pick 28, but if we do, i'd seriously consider not matching the bid (it all depends on who is left available). He isn't in the first 2 rounds IMO.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    What i'm hoping is come draft day we don't use 23 or 28 on Bedford. Try grab Butters if he falls late if not i like the sound of Sturt and Duursma

    There was a time when they got to around $10 kg, then circus monkeys went wild because the circus's could not afford giving them bananas.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Done now. I swear...
  16. Now I can talk behind your back. That dieter.......you wouldn't believe it
  17. You mentioned him: you're suspended for ten minutes!

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I dont like Scully as a person but he was a great footballer, whom I have to admit I hope doesn't reach the heights of his powers again. But that is only because the Hawks got another one for free. I certainly don't have any time at all for the melodramatic "lying to a dying man" BS. Hogan goes because he was missing home. Howe left because he listened to both his manager (more money) and Buckley (you can play forward). We may have bigger fish to fry in the next couple of years as player managers and other band wagoners whisper to our elite about more money elsewhere.

    Cost me there. Changed from From Within
  20. True - he was good but he does kick very short a lot and I also noticed a consistent tendency to kick or handball high to teammates - perhaps that’s something he will work on at MFC he did mention Goodwin had talked about how he could improve aspects of his game perhaps that is one area the guy who played on Buddy was pretty impressive - can’t remember his name #16 I think Weller played well too that day
  21. I take this year for KK with a grain of salt and compare it to Brayshaw 2016-17. He was coming from a long, long way back with his concussion issues. Hopefully a preseason, some good advice, technique change and some confidence will see him back to his best - like Gus 2018.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    In my heart of hearts I never really got too attached to Jesse, hence his departure has left me feeling a bit... meh. I took the Scully departure very, very hard and the sight of his malnourished face still makes me clench my fists, but with Jesse, this always felt somewhat inevitable. I feel sorry for the kids with the number one on their guernseys, who are probably experiencing their first taste of the tragedy of a beloved player departing the club, but it's great to see May and KK already making statements about their excitement to be joining the team. I don't wish him ill (Scully, Howe, Frawley), but then again, I also don't wish him all the best (Trengove, Watts, Tyson). He's just another player in purple now.

    What’s going on here? I’ve missed the first 3 races, where’s Francesca Cumani?

    Nope
  25. Pretty good. He took 14 marks which gives him plenty of chance for a few sloppy turnovers I guess.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Happy to put my hand up and say I was in “I don’t believe it, makes zero sense, he’s a gun, Goody only recently said he is settled etc” camp. The reason I’m happy to put my hand up is it wasn’t until his exit interview and as old mate above mentioned a week post then with Goody they decided to get him to Freo. This thread was started in July so ppffftttt.
