    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    My call has changed across the past few weeks, but now I am questioning if we really need May. He is a very good footballer - backman. We do have some real talent to develop but that is what good footy teams do and our talent has the game plans as part of their DNA. If OMac works hard on body weight, pace and muscle, and if Frosty can be polished just a fraction, and if two of our Casey defender-type fellas can take an upward step and challenge with credibility - we can have that backline - we can win the flag and summer is the time to get it done. Preuss is going to make some difference to our backline efforts for up to half of our game time and I'd reckon that is something that the FD has in mind, in particular. Just ignoring our alleged reliance on May makes me feel more comfortable and would enable Bell the Smell an opportunity to live in ignominy for the rest of his footballing association. Not too sure that Jesse is going to throw aside his 'want-away' nature - if it is real - so I have to keep outside this team evolution until I am better informed.

    He's got to stop getting so excited with the next task at hand.

    WE have a new mantra as Dees supporters: ' Five ... Twenty three ... Thirty ... or Five ... Eleven, no less!'

    Agreed, but should have set out the '...etc, etc...' defenders to ramify the point. My thoughts are that May will have greatly improved pathways and options to clear, deliver the ball and select with the Dees' strong flanking and midfield array - far better than what he had at GCS. When he is not directly involved in the defensive roles, he will be a great opposition moderator/tagger and protector of both our players - and the goalmouth area - and hopefully as a teammate communicator within his set-up range. Hogan generates expectation up the other end, with a considerable unilateral sense of the 'grab', and then the conversion; however, whilst this does occur, it does not occur assuredly nor quite as frequently as desired - and it also sets up a disposal willingness in our fwd 50 entrances to 'long bomb' and generally 'aim' in the direction of Hogan. We can really be more deadly than this with our scoring opportunities and deliverance. So, on balance, I'd consider team dynamics will work better for the Dees if May comes in down back and to achieve this, we must trade Hogan whilst strengthening the passage, delivery and own goalmouth corridors.

    Drool, it would be a wonderful outcome.

    Just maybe their Board never was reliant on Bell; saw his flaws and inexperience as stark and similar reminders of past disappointments in the role of player recruitment and/or list management. Thus, they overplayed their own hand by getting too close to the action in a 'caring, steering, 'close scrutiny' role of control freakiness over Bell, who was easily manipulated in order to 'be successful' in such an important - and for him, new - role. It might appear that the AFL did in fact lavish the expense of a telephone call to the Freo Board to sort, stabilise and normalise their endeavours.

    Strategically interesting as an example of 'come-uppance' time for Freo. They can only reap what they sow.

    He's not even in the shed. He is standing outside in the rain, shivering.

    As the sun sets on Freo's pre-Christmas extravaganza, it will not matter who they elect to get, at bargain prices, and who they eventually receive. It just ain't going to do them any good; their whole outfit is in shambles at present and recuperation is so far away that they'd waste the careers of any new blood to their lists.

    Your thinking, wwsw, is possibly that of a realist.

    That 'kick into gear' is well overdue - the Freo brains trust considers itself uniquely superior, obviously; so superior that is almost infringing on the flexibility of the trade protocols. Two nights, then the gun.

    I am actually hoping that it happens and Freo still miss out on Hogan. Crash and burn. Wonder who the new appointee will be?

    As that was one of the stupidest comments on the thread, special robert, does that mean you are volunteering for the aforementioned avatars as a form of sanction? Bezel and I would be happy to so apportion.

    ...with advertising runs in batches of 8 - 10 as the commentators really don't have much to say in that exposure interval.

    Yes, and all dignity and morality means absolutely nothing if an improved dollar outcome is chased - whether received or just missed.
