    He looks slightly uncoordinated with feet full of concrete, or maybe it's that mop of hair thrashing about. I can see him becoming the new whipping boy in 2 years time. His kicking for goal may need work, unless that was a shank in isolation. Hard to glean anything from just one video, but we may want someone cleaner with the ball?
  2. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    Brisbane fans, however ignorantly, are demanding 6-12. So it's probably around 10-15 IMO. They're probably drawing the line one pick before Richmond if those rumours are true that the tigers tanked his value by feeding stories to the media about him.

    @Demons1858 pointed out from an article published in the herald sun that we may be able to pick him up under "exceptional and compelling circumstances" http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/teams/melbourne/dom-barry-quits-afl-leaves-melbourne-to-return-home/news-story/09b42dc063721d6311b7f8864ec17530?nk=a8f4800b894fb20c0cadad0828a503b3-1508335905

    Melksham goes alright.

    So many precious joules are being generated in here by sending Watts to the Power.

    Strange move to expand your board shorts business? Some would say its a natural progression.

    We valued him as a pick 4 equivalent player

    Rory Sloane was pick 44, are you going to offer a third rounder for him?

    It's ironic that people are upset over the cost of bringing in a pick 4 equivalent player who's playign to his potential and turfing out a pick 1 that didn't.

    Geelong's terrible season continues with Ablett ruled out for 6-8 weeks with a shoulder injury and Jack Watts the latest Cat to feel the heat at the selection table. Where to next for the Cats as they contemplate a list re-build to bring in some young talent without the draft picks to do so. Rumours are circulating that Selwood and Hawkins may be used as trade bait to bring in some picks, as they will not be around for the next premiership window. And after the break we'll tackle the big question: Who will coach the Cats in 2019?

    I know every man and his dog is trying to have their say on the matter, but i will say that keeping Watts is akin to bringing in Stringer. It's not overly necessary or earth shatteringly important. The 'icing on the cake' potential is there, but it doesn't have the final say on team-wide ultimate success. The system we're building shouldn't be overly concerned with who is on the receiving end of assists from our 1 year older midfield. Obviously goal-kicking nous is valuable, but we were doing fantastically until midseason without any stand out forwards. We only have to replicate being the #1 pressure team in the competition until round 14 again, but maintain it and build upon it. With a defensive fortress held in stead by Lever, we should be well on our way towards providing more opportunies for whoever is in the forward line. I'm tipping a surprise or two forward and in the middle to bob up in place of Watts this year. Who knows, maybe this time next year we'll all be panicking over the loss of a player like Vandenberg, Hannan or _____ to a big offer from another club/s.

    That above point has been made on every page too

    Tbh, as a MFC supporter, It's safe (and sad) to say I have no idea what wins premierships. I just know that the price tag that comes with Stringer right now, after the two first round Lever trade, is far too much of a gamble for us to take. Menzel offers the same value at no cost. But I have a sneaking suspicion that we were onto something from rounds 1-14 as the #1 pressure team in the comp that had Richmond on the ropes until injuries struck. We're not in desperate need of any forward addition. A few forwards may surprise this year with the delivery from a midfield thats played together for an extra year.
