    Lyon's Plea to Petracca: Be Like Max

    Message to Gary: be less like Gary and more like Billy
  2. Anyone know a young key forward who has consistently averaged over 2 goals per game that we can target? In all seriousness, we can manage with two keys in Weid and TMac with Preuss/Smith playing only when we think we can stretch the opposition tall's or need ruck support

    Didn't we pay more for him as an unproven 17 year old? We seem to (on paper anyway) appear to have undervalued him a little in the Freo trade. I value a proven young gun forward much more highly than a like midfielder as they are rare, take time to come on, and you can build a team around them. But that doesn't mean we had an unsuccessful trade period. How well we identify the right player to undertaken an identified role and their cultural fit will determine that e.g. Hibberd, and Melksham ended up being a good fit after looking like we paid a little over. We also seem to have done ok with the GC trade. Congrats to the club for attracting talent like May against other big clubs chasing him
  4. Apparently medical checks identified a serious and chronic torn eye brow. Cameron to go for a 4th rounder

    They are just trying to create a market place for their picks

    It's not over until the trade period is over! Freo have stopped the 'public' due diligence process.

    Yep, why would MFC lose an A grade talent like Hogan and not get the picks we need to get May across the line

    Sorry AF, I'm happy to assume that he has nominated Freo but hasn't gone public. Happy to read between the lines on this one

    Well done to Dom. Still remember our win interstate against Adel in the difficult years where he kicked a late goal for the dees. Gave us hope when we needed it and will be remembered fondly

    The fact mfc and freo are in heavy negotiations more than likely indicates that Jessie has told MFC he wants to go. It also suggests he and Freo have also agreed to contract terms. But don't expect Jessie to come out and say that publicly as he doesn't want egg on this face if it falls through

    If there is a genuine 2nd club in this then I'm guessing its Sydney as they have some history of coming in from no where ... an alternative is it is a rumour designed to invigorate the market place and / or sell papers / listeners

    Correct. Very risky move though for the player and potential club so doubt / hope this doesn't happen. In any case don't think Jessie would do that to mfc given the positive relationship we have with him

    Do some research and understand the basics of how the draft and trade period works Einstein. We don't get an opportunity to match the offer if he goes into the draft and he's not a free agent. Fact

    This is getting boring. We would have this years 1st rounder and future selections to work our way into a trading position for him.
