  1. 2017 Player Reviews: # 10 Angus Brayshaw

    He is a tricky one to judge, loved his return game but then reminded me of my doubts in r23. Think he offers a bit more than you are giving him credit for though. I don't think I've seen him beaten in a marking contest and his ability to go left or right is a major asset. Don't see him being a star but could be a top 10 player for us.
  2. The Jake Lever Thread

    You were questioning my use of scapegoat, anyway lets get back to football. I have not forgotten that he had a poor period in 2016, he was poor in the back half of the season as he was for much of this season. What I do remember is him standing up in the last quarter of the grand final and being a major reason the bulldogs broke away from Sydney. I can understand why people don't want him and despite my stance on Lever, I do want him, just at the right price.
  3. The Jake Lever Thread

    It's barely worthy of a reply. There's an 80% difference in goals per game.
  4. The Jake Lever Thread

    If you want to do semantics. You still haven't explained your use of 'credibility'? And check 'their' - clearly he is a scapegoat for the bulldogs failed season, or did he single handedly derail it?
  5. The Jake Lever Thread

    Because it has been reported that Stringer will most likely go for a pick between 10 and 20 while Adelaide are going to request 2 first round picks of Lever. It has also been reported that Stringer would be on around 600-650 while we have offered Lever 800+. The argument about contracted players is stupid in this case and WB have decided to make Stringer their scapegoat publicly. He is gone for whatever they can get. The last part is your opinion. Clearly multiple clubs have no interest in Lever.
  6. The Jake Lever Thread

    All of what I said is true, other than my opinion which is I would prefer him so I don't see how that relates to credibility, but please enlighten me.
  7. The Jake Lever Thread

    Yet he has still kicked 68 goals in that period.
  8. The Jake Lever Thread

    Lets keep facts as facts. He does not intercept more than any other player and NEVER has. He led the league in intercept marks, not intercepts. Dominated? Haha he played a good game in a great team performance, he most certainly did not dominate. 15 touches and a few big spoils which everyone gets excited about when an actual player dominating would have marked them instead of punching to the boundary. ADELAIDE v GREATER WESTERN SYDNEY8 Brad Crouch (Adel)8 Eddie Betts (Adel)5 Matt Crouch (Adel)4 Tom Lynch (Adel)3 Callan Ward (GWS)1 Luke Brown (Adel)1 Richard Douglas (Adel) Lets talk FACTS if you want, but lets stick to facts. There's a reasons Adelaides offer isn't close to ours. I would much rather Stringer given he would cost less financially, significantly less trade wise and has a higher ceiling as a footballer.
  9. The Jake Lever Thread

    I agree with the philosophy but just don't think Lever is the one.
  10. The Jake Lever Thread

    While I agree with the first part there is the counter argument that if you are paying a player 800k+ he is worth more than pick 10. He would become our highest paid player. Would we trade our best player for pick 10? Clearly not. My preference would be to walk away in this case but unfortunately I get the feeling the club will cough up big time.
  11. The Jake Lever Thread

    Cant edit but the 2nd one is Hogan.
  12. The Jake Lever Thread

    If we trade 2 first rounders and pay Lever 800k the club has lost the plot and is in no way a destination club as they will try to claim. By my calculations that would make him our highest paid player, and one that has achieved little at AFL level. It would set a shocking precedent and cause other players to hold out like Martin. I would guess Prestria being offered similar money to him had a major role in delaying contracts throughout the season and then signing for 500k a season above his original offer. Oliver, Petracca and Oliver are all better prospects and other clubs will be waiting to pounce if this occurs. He would want to start being a key position player if this happens.
  13. Trade rumours

    In that game he was given a run and jump at every ball by a player who knows little about AFL football. Quite simply he isn't going to take those marks at AFL level and he needs to develop more strings to his bow. You sum it up, he is an old school forward which we don't want or need in the team. We need a forward who can play football the way it is played in todays day and age.
  14. The Jake Stringer Thread

    I'd go: Whitfield Gaff Stringer Lever That order would easily change depending on the asking price of each.

    He was 3 and so was Tyson......
