  1. Looks like a natural footballer and his disposal and composure looks impressive in the highlights pack. I'm pick him ahead of Frost for round 1 on that basis ... just kidding
  2. Highlights suggest he is quick when the footy is around, has good goal sense and is evasive. Seems a good fit
  3. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

    Has some of Robbie Flowers moves going by the highlights package ... happy to pick him up
  4. SEN's List Manager dissects our List

    lost me when he said tyson was a hard nut. not knocking tyson but no hard nuy
  5. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    He already made us pay in the back half of last season
  6. Decent sports science program, resources and staff would be nice

    Well founded logic! All the comments here are opinions like yours below. Do you have a source to say we are going to the draft with that pick to get a youngester "Rd 1 pick 2018 would be 3+ years away before making a significant impact on out flag aspirations" ?

    Why do we go on about it, well its the same reason we all post on here. Its to put an opinion forward as do the pro 'Lever trade deal posters' that think we paid fair value. PS. Round 1 pick next year would be traded for an established player not a youngster. Many have missed this point.

    Chazz not sure why he needs to get over anything. Some dislike when other disagree and start to imply things about that other person personality as a consequence. He has made a fair point that we paid overs and you are essentially agreeing with him given your analogy. So there is no disagreement

    You nailed it ! No one is saying they don't want Lever so espousing his attributes is just appealing to the masses.
  11. Peter Jackson on SEN 24/10/17

    Sounds like it might come from within the club. The current 2IC or someone they will get in to be the 2IC next year and step up after that is my guess
  12. Peter Jackson on SEN 24/10/17

    I guess we are all just lucky to have you ...

    What they had is super stars of the game and where a destination club. We have neither of these so not apples for apple as they say. We play finals and a few others emerge like Oliver and that may change but it hasn't yet

    Watts deal was fine, picks 31 will do as there was only 1 suitor and I am happy to clear some salary cap space for the talented but also committed youngsters we have on our list. Jordan Lewis question was idiotic. 3rd in the B&F and helped us when Viney and Jones were missing. Lever on the other hand. Should we be surprised that PJ agrees with the list mgmt team? Of course not. Points system is a guide at best. Perceived market value isn't the only consideration in a negotiation anyway. In negotiations you assess weaknesses in the other party's hand and also where you can find middle ground. The weakness in Adelaide's hand were significant as he was an uncontracted players who was willing to go into the draft and put a price on his head to get to MFC. The points system doesn't account for that and lots of other things. And no Lever was never going to nominate an alternative team is we held our nerve - no player I can recall has ever buckled like that other than Mitch Clarke when he changed from Freo to Melb. I'm still happy we got Lever but we should have got him for a little less as it may bite us a iittle next year when we haven't got a 1st rounder to trade for an established player to fill any holes that emerge through form or injury
