    Would like to trade you on that basis Picket.
  2. Bernie Vince Re-Signs for 2018

    That girl had better hurry up and marry him, before I do! Got a serious man crush on Bernie. Absolutely top bloke. To think that he came to us when we were on our knees, when had he stayed at the Crows, he could be just about to play off in a GF. He deserves to be at the MFC when we finally have some decent success again.
  3. AFL Finals Week 3 - Prelims

    I know they were missing a few players, but how the heck did the Crows loose to those Meth Coast Fkers.
  4. Let's be frank about GWS

    Abosolutly. I hate Sheedy as much as I hate those GW$ show ponies, but hate that $cully AH most of all.
  5. Bernie Vince Re-Signs for 2018

    Love Bernie, his great larrikin and clubman like attitude. I'd like to think that there is still some loyalty left in football and I think this is a good sign of that. In my veiw, he is one of a few players at the club that have earnt the right to finish on their terms.

    Not sure Geelong would agree with that (not that I really care). It would be a pretty tight contest for worst bloke between Heritier and Mitch.
  7. The Adam Saad Thread

    Would like to see meters gained as well. Could leading the running bounces just mean they bounce the ball more than needed? Not all, but certainly most players on that list would be light weights in terms of impact in games.
  8. The Adam Saad Thread

    I recon Saad could play as a mid more so than some of our other running backs.
  9. 2017 Player Reviews: # 4 Jack Watts

    Know what you are saying, but I think this thread has some purpose in so far as it provides an opportunity to look back over Jack's season in its entirety and with some detachment from the emotion of his and the teams imidiate form. ...of course some will just use it to find fault and reasons why he should be tradded, but they should really be directed to (many) other threads that exist on those topics.
  10. 2017 Player Reviews: # 4 Jack Watts

    For anyone who questions Jacks intestinal fortitude, there were a few games this year that demonstrated to me that he has what it takes: Rds 3 and 5 Vs Geelong and Richmond, where Jack almost single handedly rucked out the games against far bigger opponents. By the end of both games he was absolutely shattered, but kept on trying; Rd 12 Vs Collingwood - stood up and delivered when it counted. His 3 goals 2 behinds and 5 tackles played a pretty big part of the win that day. Rd 13 Vs the Bulldogs he was pretty good from memory, but then again, so was most of the team that day. Rest of the season was a bit of a write off through injury and poor form, but that would also apply to many of the team, not just Wattsy.
  11. Jack Trengove, Jake Spencer, Mitch White and Liam Hulett de-listed

    I think people really need to look at the context of games played Vs time at the club for Spencer with the context of the ruck position he plays: 1. Ruckman normally take longer to develop; 2. True ruckman are probably limited in opportunities more so than most other positions, particularly since limits to rotations has driven the trend for most teams to only play one ruckman per game (I don't see any Cox/Natanui combos going round these days); 3. Beyond your primary ruck, most other ruckman on the list are probably considered as insurance for injury/unavailablity of the primary ruck (like any true insurance policy, our's found a loophole to avoid paying out when Gawn was injured this season!) and thus wouldn't nessasrily need/be expected to play many games per year - Jake averaged about 4-5 if you make allowance for a couple of years development up front. Would like to know the league wide stats. I'm actually sad to see the Spencil go. Early in his career, he was a real liability with ball in hand (as was Nathan Jones), but I think he mostly tidyed that up in the end. One thing that couldn't be questioned with Jake was his toughness and endevor. He probably wasn't all that well endoured athleticly either and that somewhat probably held him back, but for a guy of his size, what do you expect. The last few years, I thought he was pretty close to making the grade at times.
  12. Delistings

    Surely Ben Ken has got to go? When he couldn't get a game this year at the depths of our injury woes, then that has to say something. You'd think he has some minor trade currency for someone like GC but I wouldn't expect to see anything exciting for him, perhaps a swap of final round draft picks or something ... I'd swap him for the Son of God.
  13. Trade rumours

    I thought the response from The Wise One was a fine bit of satire, equalling in response to the spirit that was suggested by the statement that this thread is for 'Trade Facts'... lol

    Hmmm, Picks 10 and 27, put my order in for another couple of Clarrys please.
  15. Jack Trengove, Jake Spencer, Mitch White and Liam Hulett de-listed

    I know what you are saying, but Trengove sits well above any other on that list.
