  1. Changes v Richmond

    Ridiculous call. I reckon both Smiths are a big chance this week. Bull will tackle all day and present, plus goody loves the flexibility he offers by going in to the middle. And Joel has pace so can work back if we get caught out on the rebound. Plus he can play big and small. I'm not necessarily advocating either, but it wouldn't surprise me and I wouldn't be shaking my head.
  2. My 3 word player analysis v North Melbourne

    Just a game for Salem? What game were you watching?
  3. Match preview and team selection - Round 3

    Admittedly I've had a few and am writing this in a cab on the way home. I've watched the game quarter by quarter throughout this week on the way to work. Salem was not anywhere near as bad as people are suggesting. Often very clean and effective, there was not way he was getting dropped. Wagner did a lot right as well. If you were looking at it objectively, out of the back 6, hunt was definitely the one to make way.
  4. Training Week Commencing 26/3

    I actually came away with the impression that Tyson and Brayshaw are right in the mix.
  5. The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    I was a big Jack Watts fan, and was seriously [censored] when we traded him. So today's performance tempts me to rail against Goodwin for trading him, and a little of that still remains. However my real frustration is reserved for Jack. Why did it take being traded to perform? If you truly loved the club then you would've shown it on the park for the Demons. So if I hear any comment from him this season that 'he always believed he was good, and just needed to be given a chance', then I will lose it. We gave you many chances, and you chose to take it for granted. So the overriding feeling I have now is one of betrayal.
  6. Herald Sun 2018 Predictions

    Could not agree more re Geelong, it baffles me. Ablett, Selwood and Danger are legends of the game, sure, but there must be a question mark if Ablett can stay on the park all season.. let alone the fact Dangers hammy just went. Even if they do play all season, whats beneath them? I like Henderson, but Hawkins and Taylor are past it. And then you've got a whole host of so so players. Will make the 8, but lower half.
  7. Preseason Training Week commencing - 22/01/18

    On Petracca, in my emerging panic I have trawled the internet and social media and found no comment - no news is good news in my book. Plus, his instagram shows that he was in the park playing with his/a dog sometime yesterday evening.. You would think that if it was serious he would be at home with it elevated and on ice.
  8. Jack Viney will Return to the Track in January.

    I recall an article shortly after the season ended where he specifically stated that there was a hot spot in his foot, and given their experience they wanted to be conservative; that even if we did make finals his involvement was unlikely.
  9. Farewell Jack Watts

    We'll have to disagree here because 31 has as strong possibility to turn in to nothing, with Watts we had something. If as has been suggested we got two back and its being packaged to move back in to the first round.. well, I'll go back in to my box.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    Pick 31 is a disgrace. Absolute daylight robbery. I feel sick.
  11. Farewell Jack Watts

    Absent some king of other pick involvement arising from compensation or another trade, he'll stay. The club has repeatedly said that if they don't get a satisfactory outcome then he will stay. People seem so eager to take the clubs word on some things, but not on others.
  12. Farewell Jack Watts

    The day Jack got back from touring Adelaide he came out in the media and plead his case, said he loved the club and didn't want to leave Melbourne. He has since toured the Cats, and spoken to the Swans while Port have in the meantime offered him a 3 year deal. They're not the actions of someone who was enamored with the prospect of going to Port Adelaide. Remember he has to agree to move. I might be alone here, but I reckon chances are skewed towards him staying now.
  13. Farewell Jack Watts

    Very true. There's no way the Swans could get him under their cap. Its Port or bust I'd say, and I just can't see him moving to Adelaide. I've said it before, but I wonder how much Jack and the club have already been talking behind the scenes. I know the media has been harping on about the damage being done, and the trade being a certainty now, but you can't tell me Goody and Jack didn't chat at the B&F. I have no doubt there is a high degree of frustration, but I'm not sure its as acrimonious as the media is letting on.
  14. Farewell Jack Watts

    Get the sense we're asking for a first rounder, and no one is prepared to give it. Unlike others, judging by the rhetoric used by the club through this, I don't think they're going to budge. Maybe to a high second rounder, but no way to a third. Just my thoughts anyway. From Jack's perspective, I don't know why he wouldn't want to move to Sydney. If he wants to focus on his business, its the perfect city! His shorts are made for Bondi.
  15. Farewell Jack Watts

    What happened to all the chat about Menzel maybe being traded, was that untrue? If not, I'd be entirely content for a straight swap!
