    There you are Wise, you and Saturday, peas in a pod.

    Gosh you've read 267 pages of this. You don't have a life do you!
  3. You must be counting practice matches!
  4. Saw the same comment when we got Michie. Hope your mate is a good judge and I welcome Harley to the club but I'll wait and see how he goes on game day before I get too excited.

    Gosh jnr, you needed to go to the B&F to see what the coaching staff thought of Watts? I got a pretty good idea when they put him up for trade with two years to run on his contract.

    Wrong take I reckon TGR. Whilst the majority here think we are soft and can't negotiate I reckon we've had the balls to see what we need and go and get it. We've not been worried about the marginal costs of playing top dollar for what we need. We've not been worried that the journo's and keyboard warriors will ridicule us for paying "overs" or taking "unders". The safe thing would have been to say Lever was overs and Watts was unders and not do the deal. If we did that we'd be playing with a list we saw as inadequate. The courageous thing to do was to pay what it took and risk being wrong. Many a sook here would lament finishing 4th in a few years wishing we had a Lever to solidify the backline. This FD have a vision and are following it fearlessly. They aren't taking the easy option. Good on them. As for Watts I regret what we've done to a rare person in footy because Jack is a decent, honest and loyal person dealt cards that cruelled him. Good luck Jack, I'll always wish you the best and always feel we've let you down very badly.
  7. Most know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

    In one of the older versions of the Demonland software there was a feature that allowed you to see how many times a contributor posted on a particular thread by just clicking on the number of posts in the thread title. It would be particularly fascinating on this thread! Nash?
  9. Trade rumours

    They aren’t getting a player from Geelong of value. 19 might get them that player.
  10. Trade rumours

    They’ve probably been given 19 on the basis it’s on traded for Ablett. This will be to help GCS.

    He won't be if he plays at Casey, he'll be a shining example....
  12. Farewell Jack Watts

    If he stays who says we have to play him? If he doesn't perform dump him at Casey until he does what is asked. I'd rather do that an hope the penny drops after all this time than have some pizzy little third rounder.
  13. Trade rumours

    On the MFC site he said in an interview when asked of Balic he said that there are other priorities for both clubs. I took this to mean we were looking at other trades and that Balic would be steak knives at the end of the trade period when the dust had settled.

    McQueen I'm not debating with you Watts performance or history as a player. I was questioning your attribution of motive to the support Jack received by those in attendance at the B&F and offered you some alternative reasons for why he may have received support on the night. He may also have received support because like me, many would think that the club has managed this process exceptionally poorly. For those that ask how it could have been done differently cast your minds back to when Brock left, it was a very similar situation. And I've no intention of including myself in the general debate on Watts. What on earth could be said that hasn't been stated by many over 150 pages of posts? I will say though that when history is written the Jack Watt's chapter is not one our club should have any sense of pride over. Rarely has a player been treated so poorly by so many.

    I was responding to his comment of yours " More telling was the chorus of supporters cheers for Jack. Blinded by his 'great guy' status over his years of mediocrity." I was suggesting that rather than the supporters being blinded by his "great guy" status they were recognizing other areas of contribution which I've detailed. I'm not debating Watt's trade situation but on your inability to see why supporters might have reacted the way they did and how little insight to that you've got and how inappropriate your criticism of them is.
