    Be Patient with Lever

    Again - ???. Been common knowledge throughout AFL circles for over 15 years that he's just about tactically inept.

    Is Brayshaw more rounded than the Trac?

    Christ. How dare anyone show any confidence or ambition ?. If you want to be successful you can't have a team of introverted robots.

    Bayley Fritsch to debut.

    Agree. The other thing I like about Fritsch is that he's got so much development left in him. Like Oliver he took a slightly different path to the big time compared to most players on AFL lists and hasn't been as professional for as long as some others his age. Once he develops physically, both with his tank and upper body, and also gets used to the game plan and being in AFL environment he becomes a seriously damaging player for us. This is opposite to someone like Billy Stretch who has basically lived the life of a professional footballer since he was 16 with access to far better coaches, programs and facilities. I still think Billy has a place on our list going forward but there's not nearly as much upside with him as with Fritsch.

    Viney has only been in full training for a week or two. I'd be stunned if he played against St Kilda.

    Who plays in JLT v North Melbourne 24/2?

    Huh? You'd go into round 1 against Geelong with barely any of the senior team having ANY meaningful match practice? They'd be unbelievably rusty then in round 1 and would completely blow up about halfway through the third quarter.

    As someone who hasn't always enjoyed the tone of a lot of @Satyriconhome's posts, I'll give credit where it's due and say your posts of late have been interesting and informative, and largely free of the tiresome blinkered condescension. When you're like this you're a very valuable poster. Keep up the good work.

    Well it's not a non-story. Considering that clubs try to be relentlessly positive with the messages coming out at this time of the year, I'm really disappointed to hear Misson say, verbatim; “They’ve come back in OK shape – some that we would’ve liked to have come back a bit better". Especially after the statement they made by trading Watts.

    I poked my head in for 15 minutes this morning at Gosch's. I'll leave the observations on the minutiae of the drills etc to those who care more about that, but my biggest take out from my limited time there was the increased size of Weideman across his whole upper body. He's now a really good size. Whether he gets much game time this year I don't know, with TMac likely to go forward, but physically, he's now just about ready.

    People seem to have comprehension issues, and as soon as they see "two first rounders" panic and ignore all other elements of the deal. Let me say again, according to the AFL draft points calculator, the end result of this trade is we have given up the equivalent of pick 10 and pick 32. Pick 10 and pick 32 for the best young defender in the game. If you're upset about that then you've got rocks in your head.

    Interestingly enough, using the AFL draft points calculator, we've actually paid LESS than our initial offer of 10+27 (2100 points). Cannot for the life of me understand the tantrums on here. We've just landed the best young defender in the competition for the equivalent of a first rounder and a second rounder.
