  1. 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.

    2018 Player Reviews: #3 Christian Salem

    Salem has a very, very high ceiling and has only shown a glimpse of what he is capable of. Hopefully he is able to hit the preseason healthy, fit and full of confidence.
  4. I don’t see the need to play 3 genuine talks. TMac and Weid along with a range of mediums and smalls is more than enough. In fact, it’s the structure we successfully employed after the Sydney match and kicked a winning score against West Coast, GWS, Geelong and Hawthorn.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Disappointed to see Jesse go but May and KK (who I rate very highly) to the club is excellent. Id be interested in a last minute trade for 23 if someone became available...

    Rumour File

    I despise Geelong, but I do feel they are within their rights to be seething about the Kelly trade. I know there are extenuating family circumstances, but the fact that he is wanting to go back to WA for family reasons, but is only willing to go to one club is farcical. IMHO, contracted players should be able to nominate the State that they would like to be traded to and the money they would like to receive- then it's over to the clubs to sort out the trade that's best for them.

    Thanks Cameron Pedersen

    There would be few players that have had a s big a turn around in fan opinion than Cam Pedersen. His first match was a shocker and he spent his first two years on our list with people counting the days until his contact was up. He retires a much liked and admired player for his contribution during the rebuild.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    What today’s contract ‘revelation’ tells me is that Hogan is happy to stay at the Dees and in Melbourne, but has put to Freo that if they were to make him an obscenely good, too good to refuse offer, then he’d go.
  11. I get the feeling that this is 100% certain to go through, but will be close to the end id trade week as they’d wanna know the Hogan/ May situation before committing a pick to KK. Sounds like the club wants to package May and KK together. If the May trade falls through, trade a pick for him. Very excited about seeing him in the red and blue in 2019 - he is silk.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Gary Lyon and Paul Roos both said this during the finals when Weideman was on fire.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    That was pure class by Tubby.
  14. When the midfield is flogged, every full back in the league looks poor. Rance v Cox in the PF, or perhaps more tellingly May vs Riewoldt in Round 21 10 goals 6 behinds. No full back, not even the now legendary Steven May, can hold off a genuinely good FF when their midfield is brining the ball in with ease.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Is this really fair though?? Are there any players on our list that we demand a commitment from ‘beyond his current contract’? Isn't that what contracts are for? Are there any other players coming out of contract next year that we’re making similar demands of??
