    I think you'll find the majority of lawyers are Melbourne supporters.

    Innocent

    The heading to this thread is 100% accurate. Under our law, a person charged with an offence is always innocent until proven guilty.

    2019 Free Agents

    I'd argue we got May as a result of FA. As @Fifty-5 says above, clubs are trading players before they get to FA status. May is certainly partly in this boat.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    I've changed my mind again. I don't want to go for the WA picks because of the go home factor. So I'm going out on a limb and saying McKenzie will drop to 54 and Ayton-Delaney will drop to 62.

    2019 Free Agents

    Wow that's a very ordinary list. Clubs are getting ahead of the curve and trading players before they becomd FA.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I had a bit of a soft spot for Freo, fellow travellers in adversity and all that. I don't wish Jesse any ill will personally but Freo have lost me. I don’t like North and Freo are up there with them now, unlikeable but unremarkable.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Knowing he was in discussions with Fyfe and Lyon last year places a full stop on this for me. He has had one foot in Freo for some time. That was always suspected but it’s beyond a shadow of a doubt now. He’s a Fremantle player who once played for Melbourne. Good luck to him. Time to move on.

    The Jay Lockhart Thread

    Dion Johnstone was delisted.
  12. Bailey Williams has been on the fringes of the first round for much of the year. Has drifted out of the conversation for the top 25 or so, but has potential as a tall forward.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Almost "Obviously I do want to play in finals and flags, but at this stage it was more important to get back around my family and friends, and have a fresh start.”

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I hope we don't. This has been conducted with the highest levels of public integrity. We know he has had issues and struggles. I'd rather it's clsp and support him. His statement is brave. I can't remember reading a quote from an AFL player that puts family and friends above final in the way that he has stated it.

    Lucky Jesse isn't wearing a dress.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Wouldn't be surprised. Would explain the massive unders we took for him. Let this sink in. GWS traded Boyd 1 year in for pick 4 and griffen and they were offering pick 6 and another later pick for griffen. Boyd had and still has not showed a quarter of the potential of hogan

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Bit of X-factor there.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    Can he go as low as 91? Can O'Rielly go at pick 54? Can English go at 62? I've settled on Sturt at 23 and Duursma at 28. Like to get Hind, C.Wagner and Lockhart as rookies.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    He made the right call, aside from the stated homesick and personal issues from constant injuries to games with no impact Jesse needed a fresh start. Who knows the effects of watching a team you where brought into in its darkest days push into September whilst you sit on the sidelines, perhaps he saw that the team had gone around him and he was no longer a key piece. Maybe he was frustrated with his playing position and the teams style, maybe Dean Kent moving on helped the decision. Jesse will be a good forward but not the best, Freo would want to improve a lot from this season to give him good opportunities. Whilst i would rather have him in the side we will not good backwards from this, others will get their opportunities and Melbourne will be a very strong attacking side 2019.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    Bedford is quick. No doubt. Whilst he doesn’t get the footy 25 times a match, his danger is tackling, pressure, goalkicking and assists. Definitely worth any draft pick after 50.

    Gee, why did he wear our hat.

    Why would you wear that cap to court? His lawyer should have told him to take it off.
  25. RalphiusMaximus

    Innocent

    I think you might find that he did not in fact take money from those 200 disabled Australians. Rather, he used them to take money from the Government. This is in no way significant when determining his guilt or innocence, and indeed he would probably get a harsher sentence for robbing the Government, but it's an interesting note on how they do headlines. Nobody really cares if he robs the Government, but say that he was robbing poor disability pensioners and suddenly he's going straight to hell. Which is appropriate given his choice of head-wear.

    A Day at the Races

    Homesman is the one for me. Should jump to the front on a leaders track and a big weight drop makes it a very good chance.
  27. "I caught up with Nat and Ross last year in the case of a random trade and the way they were talking with a bit of a five-year plan, it kind of aligned with where I was at,” Hogan said. “Then this year we had further conversations about it with a bit more depth and they aligned with where I was at. “I agreed with what Nat and Ross were saying so the natural pull to Freo was on the back of those conversations.” After reading that I hope Goody & Jack have been sitting down & having a chat with young Cera & talking a bit of a 5 year plan & aligning where he's at...then we can have further conversations with a bit more depth next trade period and get him onboard in 2020...
