  1. 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.
  2. Griffen AND pick 6.
  3. 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.
  4. Someone's daft alright.

    Watts wouldn't be on much money? Huh? When he was coming out of contract last year he was on the restricted free agent's list, meaning he was in the 10 highest-paid players at the club. So after already being in the top 10 highest paid players at the club after what you and many would deem a disappointing career, he has his breakout year. After a terrific 2016, he signed a deal while he had the highest bargaining power he's had at any point during his time at the club. It's therefore safe to confidently assume that he'd currently be among the top 5 or 6 highest paid players in the club. Your Weideman/Watts theory is completely nonsensical.

    Exactly. No way you can play Hogan, TMac and Weid in one forward line in the modern game and win more games of footy than not. Forward pressure would be just about non-existent.
  7. Good Win? ... I don't know...

    Wasn't talking about you specifically mate, more some of the doom merchants who love to call for change for change's sake. This is the sort of thing I mean;

    Don't disagree with your points but last year we had the least injuries of any club, and by a considerable margin. People love scapegoats. Seems like Misson and Rawlings have become them in the last month or so, despite people having very little idea of how they're going as 95% of their work is done behind the scenes.
  9. Huh? Lever is 21. He's not even close to being a free agent.

    So you're saying Watts doesn't kick the ball well? Rriiiiiight...

    Sorry but that's just wrong, Watts is consistently in our top 2-3 players every game for distance covered.
  12. Aaron vandenBerg Re-signs for 2018

    The fact it's only a one year deal is telling. Big year for Aaron.

    Drums are beating because a journalist with zero credibility writes that in his opinion they should be traded?
