    But can we trust you Chewy? We've been hurt before. We're not ready to commit to a relationship with some new rumourmonger. Don't disappoint us. I don't think we could take being hurt one more time. Let's just be friends.
  2. I didn't see any cup or medal awarded to any club at 2PM Thursday. You don't "win" or "lose" at trade week. You "improve" your list, or you "don't". We won't know for sure until next season is underway, but at this stage it looks like we have improved ours. That's the nearest to "winning" we can do in October. Go Demons!

    PJ is crouched in his office ... actually a domed clay hut in an office at AAMI. He is wearing an ill-fitting sack-like garment made of rough cloth. He sites on a crude stool at a crude table, clutching a few printouts in his clawed hands, which he reads by candle light. "Hm! Letters from members, these are. Powerful language! 'You f**ken pr**ks' says it does. Hm! Understand I do not but much anger I sense. And this one? 'I commend you on making the tough and unpopular decisions in pursuit of success'. Ah yes. Brings balance to the club, it does. Hm!"

    My view: I don't see it as we are constrained by the available picks of the suitor clubs. We can't force Port to give (eg) pick 20 if they don't have it. Moreover, they are going to be swayed more by their own assessment of JW than by public utterances of football managers, player managers, and supporters Yes. On the other hand we are constantly told of the blandness of modern footy-speak. (You have mastered it yourself in your "straight bat" dialogue!) One could mount a case that it was refreshing to hear the unvarnished truth. I don't see how some more carefully worded utterances would have affected anything except a few less pearls being clutched. I think a lot of the maligning was actually done by our rank and filers who projected more than what was actually said back on to our leaders. And again, no material difference. By pre-season, everyone's expectations will be re-set, and in the lead up to the season there will be bugger all talk of JW (unless we are looking in diabolical form).

    Torn strips off him? Norm isn't around to ask but maybe there is a clue in this story .... Anyone remember David Cordner? Melbourne royalty. Part of "the" Cordner family. Tall, skilled, showed enormous promise, etc. Nearly drove Barassi mad. "He looks like a professional but he thinks like an amateur" he would say (or something very close to that). Spent hours in one on one skills sessions trying to get him to mark at arms length, to protect the ball from spoils, and trying to get some mongrel into him. The experiment went for a few seasons and finally an underperforming DC was shipped off to the Swans where he played only a handful of games and that was the end of that.

    Assuming the club had followed your hypotheticals to the letter: how would the outcome be materially different?

    If Weid thinks JW is an awesome role model and someone to emulate, then that by itself shows why he had to go.

    I think he would agree with you. What's coach to do in light of such a failure? More of the same, but with fingers crossed?

    Jesus Christ. Some posters might be better off calling beyond blue than spending time here.

    Neeld was a cartoon tough guy who thought it was about threats and thumping tables. Winning matches has this incredible balming effect that tends to sort out confusion like that (*snaps fingers*) If we win, JW will only be remembered when we play Port.
