  1. Peter Jackson on SEN this morning

    Where the whingers @?
  2. The James Worpel Thread

    Impressed you in what way WJ? I also saw him in a couple of occasions and he possesses nothing that we need And of all the talked about inside contested players I saw, he was the least impressive.

    That’s the way. Now you’re getting the hang of it.
  5. The Matthew Ling Thread

    I hope you’ve considered that they were highlights from a single game. One. His technique and decision making are generally sound and you’re pointing out two execution errors from a game which also displays two very difficult-to-execute kicks. One an inside kick into the corridor which is a clear example of both his skill level and vision. The other a beautiful weighted kick inside 50 whilst running at top speed. The two you’re pointing out were clear execution errors and one of those is because he rushed and kicked whilst off balance. A very simple thing to address. Having seen him play on a few occasions this year, I can tell you that these are rare occurrences. Much like when you see Salem miss an easy intended target. When you see players hit difficult kicks with precision, it’s not so worrying that they miss an odd short kick, especially if it’s an execution thing due to kicking off one step/rushing. It would only be a concern if it was vision of him missing both short and long targets, easy and difficult. Ling is a great ball user, I’ve seen him on several occasions this year.
  6. The Bayley Fritsch Thread

    A gun footballer doesn't get dropped in a team that possesses the weakest and least experienced key defensive unit within the AFL sorry. Gun is another word that is thrown around far too loosely. Frost is a developing player with some glaringly obvious weaknesses to his game, he is most definitely not a "gun".
  7. The Bayley Fritsch Thread

    It has. Except that one time you called Frost a "gun".

    I'm not sure if you're jesting, but incase you're not, I disagree. He is a speculative pick in the 50's who is young and developing but does not possess the talent levels or attributes of any of those players I mentioned. Mainly because they were all top 10 picks. (Bar Viney because of f/s and Lever because he didn't play any of his last underage year. Both would have been top 10 easily if not for those variables). Oscar is in the 'maybe' make it camp atm. It's Weideman. The list was based on high end talent. And both players were top 10 picks and were highly rated for a range of reasons. I've said my piece regarding Sam many times already. Supporters are incredibly short-sighted, impatient and generally clueless about Sam and the circumstances surrounding him as a player. There are young and developing players like Oliver. And there are young and developing players like Jayden Hunt and Weideman. Oliver leapt onto the scene and has been playing at an incredibly high level for someone his age. Going into Hunt's third year, he hadn't yet debut at AFL level let alone dominated a game at VFL. Do you understand why though? Probably not given your criticism of Weideman. I'm not sure how many times posters need reminding, but Sam (just like Hunt with his back injury) was so far behind the 8-ball with his body and we've been lucky enough as a club to have the forwardline depth to keep him at Casey where contrary to some views, he's been developing nicely. Going into his third pre-season and first full one, he will now be prepared to have a genuine impact at AFL level. I'm not saying he'll dominate, but his body will allow him to at least contribute at AFL level while he finds his feet and it's going to be a confidence thing before he starts performing on the big stage. He has the perfect set of attributes to play as a power full-forward.
  12. From the Falcons, just made a post about him in the "Jack Petruccelle" thread. Reported on him under instruction from a club so he'll be considered if available I imagine. Is a very good player and despite the fact that he looks to be predominantly outside, he possess an aggressive and competitive edge which stood out to me. Would love him.
  13. The Jack Petruccelle Thread

    Because IMO he is exactly the type we're screaming out for and I'm hopeful he'll be there at our first pick. Again, didn't set the world alight at state level but I saw him in Geelong's first final against Gippsland and he was super impressive. I think it's a good thing if he slides. Played most of the year at HB for the Falcons, is lightning quick with a precise left-foot and great spatial awareness. But what impressed me most in that final were his defensive efforts and his desire to scrap really hard when the ball was in dispute. I was expecting to see a player of his profile to be predominantly outside but he recorded 6 tackles in that first final, spoiled with intent and you could clearly see he had the hunger to defend hard as well as attack. Really good sign. I think he could be groomed to play wing at AFL level. I love him. Should have his own thread and sorry to derail this one.
