  1. Preseason Training - Week commencing 13/11/17

    I don't think the club has any say in it. I'm pretty sure it would be part of the players CBA and the players association would be keeping a close eye on it. Having said that, as a new recruit who is yet to prove he is worth the salary he is getting, you would hope he would return early and bond with the team.
  2. 2017 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Reminds me of Aaron Francis. Glad we don't have our pick 10 to potentially waste on him.
  3. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    I've said it multiple times, he should not have been in AA squad based on output. A 1st and 2nd is a very generous offer and should be taken off the table if Adelaide don't accept it on the opening day.
  4. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    All of those players were better than him this season.

    With the free kick against Lever, that had to be. Riewoldt also got his 1st goal after giving a big jumper tug to Talia at half forward.

    No, Rance has always played on the key forwards, since day dot. He still nearly always plays on the 1st or 2nd tall now. Lever never does and that is a big difference, means you have to carry an extra tall player in the team. The bolded part is true, but seeing his lack of pace today is a worry if he is not gonna matchup on the talls.

    I'm getting sick of reading this comparison. Rance plays key position on a key forward every week. Lever never plays on a key forward. There is a big difference and it's extremely wishful thinking if you think he will be a similar player.
  8. The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

    Disagree strongly. They had a dream run with injuries this year, barely had a player of note miss a game and had an easy draw due to finishing 13th last year. Teams will figure out how to counter there small forward line and they will be back with the pack.
  9. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    Was very average, was OK in the first quarter and racked up some junk time stats late in the game. Gave away a shocking free kick that costed a goal when Adelaide were doing well early. Showed his lack of speed today and again didn't match up on a quality opponent.You would want a player of his size who is not going to play KP, to take the likes of Martin or Dangerfield. Still don't see him being worth the kind of money that is being talked about, whether that is 750 or 900.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    I'm sure the Central Districts coach would have had a lot to do with that trade.......

    We clearly know multiple teams have more money than us to throw around yet aren't pursuing Lever, so that tells me a fair bit. Close to the team would imply he was almost in it. Find me one expert or even Bigfooty poster who had Lever in their AA team. He was not close to being in it. He was lucky to be in a squad of 40. Not sure what Oscar has to do with any of this, he is a KPP. You have mentioned Lever as a key position player in your post yet as other posters have pointed our repeatedly, He is not a KPP. If he was, then he would have many more clubs going harder at him. The amount of money tells me that we aren't a destination club which the club wants to be and we hardly have a great record with high profile recruits.
  12. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    Firstly, he is not an AA and quite frankly no one would have had him close to the team. He was listed in the squad but was never going to make it. The fact that no other club is willing to spend that kind of money on him is just as telling, despite you having more of an idea than all of us that don't want to pay overs for him and the 17 other AFL clubs. Where would you rank him with our younger players? Oliver, Hogan, Viney, Petracca and Lever. Can you please order them 1-5 so I can get an understanding.
  13. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    Will he be in our best 3 players? I don't think so, therefore we shouldn't be paying that kind of money to him.
  14. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    Yes and no, his agility is poor and he doesn't fully commit to defensive acts often when he is the only player within the vicinity and the team needs him to, but he has shown some strong signs with his tackling in congestion.
  15. They were spot on, he is not a standout player and would rarely be in the top 3 players on the ground. He is consistent but not a standout player who dominates games.
