    2018 Player Reviews: #3 Christian Salem

    A gun. His kicking is a joy to watch. Salem will be a real weapon for us for many years to come.

    Go and get Gaff!

    I'm pleased to hear it. As much as I would have loved him to be playing for the Demons, I am happy that loyalty isn't dead.

    Go and get Gaff!

    If true I'm stoked. He'll be well compensated but it strikes a blow for old fashioned club loyalty. Simpson and everyone at WCE stuck by him. Despite his old man's illness, he's four hours away, not in another country. A few blokes could learn a lesson if that's how it plays out.

    You'll need to call the club. Tracy is great but there isn't much available in the premium memberships.

    Upgraded from Redlegs to Trident a couple of weeks back. Couldn't get 2 seats together in the Olympic stand so we are in the Great Southern Stand section. Loved the Redlegs area (N1-4) behind the Punt Rd goals, hoping the move to the HFF will be worth it! Very limited opportunity for the premium packages by the sound of it so register your interest asap.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Given who the Dockers are trying to bring in, a more likely trade is a very early pick (likely 5) plus a player. They'll need to keep some picks but Hogan is clearly the most valuable KPP in trade conversations so he is definitely worth more than 1 first round pick. It may be Andrew Brayshaw or it may be somebody else but I think this is probably the most likely outcome.

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    I'd be reluctant to let him go. No team ever gets through injury free. Which young midfielder that we haven't yet seen at senior level is going to be better than Tyson if Viney gets hurt again or if Brayshaw gets concussed, or Oliver's shoulders don't come up? I think the GF proved that depth is crucial. Both sides were a long way from their best 22 yet still played an extraordinary game of footy. Tyson played some pretty reasonable footy towards the end of the H&A season and was nearly best on against the Giants for the first half before he broke his arm. He can play. People knock his disposal and it's true he isn't a fantastic kick, but he can find the footy and he is a big, experienced body. As long as his arse points south he'll never be a winger but he is an important part of our depth. Hold him to his contract.
  8. I think Salem's year has been very underrated and he'll be top half dozen in the Bluey!

    FWIW Tony Sheahan reported on his twitter feed that the Demons are back in the race for Gaff. Usually a fairly speculative fellow, but he's put it out there.
  10. I wouldn't be at all surprised if May and KK are packaged up for a top 10 pick assuming the Hogan trade goes ahead. May alone is not worth a top 10.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Two first round pick, one of which goes to GC for May and I'd imagine KK. No way May would be worth a top 10 pick by himself. Darcy wouldn't go with it if he had any doubt and Jones certainly wasn't refuting it.

    Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

    I've got a lot of sympathy for AVB's situation. He carries a massive family responsibility with the business and he has been running it by remote. Sure we looked after him when injured, but he got injured playing for us! He always gives 100%, but as others have already pointed out, he isn't critical for us going forward. If he goes then I wish him all the best and sincerely thank him for what he has done for our footy club.

    My 3 word end of season player analysis

    Love your work Joeboy! Don't always agree with it, but love it!

    May is an average AFL defender. Not worth a top 10 pick. Hard to see where he fits into our side.

    Pies Gone Past Us ??

    No, they have been a little bit ahead of us the whole time. Even last year although we finished four positions higher on the ladder, they had us covered comfortably in round 23 and we were fortunate to beat them in QB. They are a good side but we are very close to theem and closing fast.
