    Without sounding like a creepy old man, that some make me out to be, the message has sunk in, Trac and Harmes went on holiday together but obviously did a heap of work, they are both in magnificent shape and were wandering around at the end of the session shirtless showing off the rigs There is nobody at the moment who looks to have slacked, King is one who looks to have not stopped training since the end of the season As mentioned before Gus looks really fit, is wearing his lucky jocks and carrying a rabbits foot in his sock and avoiding ladders The one who really pisses me off is Crossy, the other coaches are beginning to show they are retired, Crossy put the rehabbers through a solid 1 and 1/2 hours, doing all the running and drills, hardly broke a sweat quote (not me) "he is a machine"

    Obviously I wish all the players but I must admit I am barracking a bit harder for Dec because of your input on here Drunkn. Your call of "He knows his job is on the line" hits home as to the precarious nature of an AFL players career if you aren’t one of the elite. I very much hope Dec will be playing in the 22. Perhaps a Queens Birthday debut!

    Thanks to Its Time last year, we were able to put together, as best we can, the membership tally comparisons with previous years. Early days yet, and the data is as good as we can get it, to show how the numbers stack up.....

    His expectations on himself are pretty high, wants to be playing regular senior football by the end of the season as he knows his job is on the line. He's done plenty of work in the off season, regularly training both by himself and with one of the main gym instructors at his home based gym. He is at the same muscle mass as half way through the season currently, where 95% of other players drop a little bit of muscle. Hes made sure not to overdo it and been in regular contact with trainers/physios etc. He's lifting heavier weights and basically doing all the prep he can to give himself the best chance. We'll see what happens.

    Commercially, I'd like to see Lever in #4. There are currently a large number of kids running around in #4 jumpers. Having Lever take the number on gives them cause to continue wearing the number proudly.

    A few notes from training today Rehab Filipovice, Hannan, Joel Smith, McKenna all injuries cleared up working on fitness, AVB, Viney, Weed did a walking lap, Tim Smith about 10 mins of handball Mitch King now weighs in at 100kg looks super fit As do Trac, ANB, Stretch Had a chat to Gus Brayshaw 100% healthy did some work in break, looks fit Goodwin very very vocal today

    This debate is ridiculous. The players need to have time off. The important thing is the shape they return in. That demonstrates how they will attack the year ahead.

    It's being pedantic, I know, and I'm probably fighting a losing battle, but I don't like the idea that moving to a lower number is in any way an "upgrade". It's just a meaningless change which serves no purpose other than to annoy those supporters who have already purchased a jumper with that player's original number. I know that if I was rewarded with a spot on the list and given any number from 1 to 99 I'd want to keep that number for the whole of my career, however long it may last. Players should be encouraged to stick with the one number and to make their own history with it. And the idea that a lower number is somehow a more privileged asset just seems like another way to differentiate players into the "haves" and "have nots" (meaning, in this instance, having the confidence of the coaches). I would have thought that's not the best way to unify a squad.

    He is my pick to be the major bust of the year. Coughs ball up too easily! I don't care how "Fit" he looks, if he plays Scared rabbit in headlights again this year it will be all over!

    Donny Williams. Number 25. An absolute dasher and a star. 5 time premiership player was named on the HBF in our team of the century.

    Why do you think Copernicus was afraid???????You forget how powerful the so-called Church was - was and still is in this country, witness DLP split, the lunatic fringe beliefs of Bernardi and the Abbottoir ( a very keen Santamaria acolyte ) and Andrews, the same sex marriage debacle where even Spain and Ireland have allowed common sense and compassion to rule - and, yep you mentioned it, the bastards burnt you if you flouted their fundamentalist patriarchal ideology. If you think I'm maybe a bit bitter and twisted about the so called church, you're right. I attended Salesian College Rupertswood as a day boy therefore I missed the 'warm cuddly' stuff. Unfortunately my best friend didn't. He still wears the scars. What we did get in regular abundance was lies and propaganda rammed down our throats - not all of them were lunatics, mind you. The Headmaster, for example, took Social Sudies in Matric and he used to turn apoplectic about the rape of Vietnam by the USA and Australia Most of all we faced the viscious brutality born from a goulash of bigotry, sexual frustration and the unconscious rage they must have felt when they inevitably faced the fact they were living a futile anachronistic lie where on the one hand they were supposed to be the sheppards of Jesus but in reality most of the were just indoctrinated order followers and child beaters and child molesters.

    Him and Toumpas will add some pace to the Port Flanks. Watts should provide the toughness at the contest.

    Yep, agreed. Seems you've got a solid 6 step guide there, mate. Each to their own, mate. Sloane doesn't step up in those clutch moments IMO. His skills aren't great and he's not fast either. I'd argue Jones is the better player. Where do you rate Jonesy on the grade scale?
  17. 1 point
    I'd say Sloane, for example, ticks 2, 3 and 6. You could argue our Jonesboy does too. Both B+ graders on the cusp of A. If you add 5 or 4 to that mix, that'd tip you over into A grade IMO.

    Sloane, Danger, Fyfe tick a few of those boxes...none are great kicks but they seem to go ok.

    I never actually said anywhere in my post you don't need to be able to kick. I'm saying being an elite kick at TAC and underage level means very little in terms of being able to use those skills at the next level due to panicking under pressure. Think Strauss and Maric vs Matt Crouch and Sam Powell Pepper. Yes it's a skill in the game but there are other far more important traits to look for in a player STMJ will know what I'm talking about here 1. Speed- leg speed, acceleration and/or decision making 2.Good Size - height and/or frame 3. Impact - ball use and/or contested impact 4. Skill - hand, foot and vision 5. Game sense 6. Workrate - endurance, repeat effort, DRIVE/DESIRE Tick 3 or more of those and you're likely to be a player at a fairly decent level and worth a look at. Dependent on how many or which particular ones you tick and that determines your draft position.

    I think we really need to find a couple of players to replace Watts, Lewis and Vince and keep the depth of the list improving. It's kind of more important to keep adding good players now we've built something than before when we were just trying to get some talent. I know that missing on first round picks when you're down the bottom really stuffs you up but now we've got the 4 picks and we have to get a couple of decent players from them. It's really difficult to predict who we will draft with where our picks fall which makes it hard to study the talent but I'm with you on the excitement building 3 weeks out.

    Getting a little excited about the draft this year, as it is not a life or death one for us, as we now have a reasonable list, but rather more of a cherry pick to hopefully find a gem after the first round and a half has gone. Usually I know very little about the available talent and this year I know even less. So for me it will be a bit of excitement finding out who we have chosen and then watching their development.

    Agree and Davey at his best. (remember it is most exciting .. not best). The absolute best when on song and unfortunately that was not often.... Travis Johnstone...... third quarter against Adelaide in a final at the MCG..... best I have ever seen played.

    I reckon Jason Taylor will nail this pick.

    Matt Crouch was the best kid at reading the ball off the rucks at bounce downs and throw ins during his junior carnival... I thought he slipped a bit too far in the draft but then again I hadn't seen anything else of him apart from these games.
