  1. Trengove and Scully were supposed to be the players to lead our club out of the doldrums at picks 1 & 2 of the 09 draft. Whilst they didn't work out for us, the 09 draft has given us (eventually) Melksham and Gawn, who are absolutely critical to September success.

    An old workmate of mine used to play cricket at Maribyrnong Park when Walker was a junior. Walker was a very talented key position player who at the time had his pick of potential success in either footy or cricket. Some considered his talent comparable to Peter Wright at the same time. He came from a very cricket focused family, so footy didn't really get a look in. Clearly our recruiting team (Tim Lamb according to the article) kept tabs on him. His cricket career was derailed by injury issues, so I hopefully he can get his body right for footy. If he does, we may have pinched one. Edit: Wonder if the timing of Harley Balic's retirement had any connection with this announcement?

    Round 23 Fixture Announced

    So this has us featuring on the Sunday afternoon game on Channel 7 all the way through to the end of the home & away season. And after an 8 day break this week on 7 day breaks all the way to the end of regular season. Nice.

    Dom Tyson - 100 Games

    Hear hear. Hope Dom has a trong finish to the season and gets the opportunty to play finals. Was very, very good for us when Roosy was head coach.

    Jared Polec?

    Probably just his manager putting a bit of pressure on Port to put a deal (or improve a deal) on the table, but hope we'd make an enquiry. Could definitely use his run and kicking skills. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-07-10/indemand-speedster-yet-to-commit-to-power

    2018 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Bailey's been around the mark as a top 20 prospect coming into the Champs, and has held/improved his standing with some good, consistent footy. Can win his own ball, runs hard and has popped up for the odd goal resting forward. Probably in the 15-20 range at this stage.

    Victorian from an interstate club?

    That felt like more salt. 2 points not a true reflection, Saints were a four goal better side than us today. Our midfield mix was exceptionally poor today, work rate was tepid. Had hoped the Collingwood game was the reality check the club needed, but seems like reality needs to slap us a few more times. Problem is, the season may be gone before the team wakes up.

    Essendon VFL v Casey Demons - VFL Round 13

    Slow. Speed hasn't ever been one of his tricks. When fully fit, a good endurance athlete, competitive and great decision maker in close.

    The Toby Bedford Thread

    Had heard that Bedford was eligible for us under NGA, so kept an eye on him yesterday. He has good pace and I really like his endeavour, but was a bit scrappy with his skills and decision making. May not have been used to spending as much time on ball as he did against WA, but was one of VC's best (Walsh, Williams and Eli Smith were probably the only others to play reasonably for VC) well as WA really controlled the game from start to finish. Unless he makes massive strides in the second half of the season, I don't think we'd have to give up too much to match an opposition bid at this stage.
  12. I'm in Adelaide for the weekend, how cheap are the tix?

    Jack Billings

    Was a good kick for goal as a junior, don't quite know what's gone on at St Kilda. Could give us more outside run through the midfield & his field kicking is still good. Would be funny if we used Tyson in a trade to finally get him, think we could get more out of him than St Kilda has. Had quite a good year in 2017 and was probably their best against us in Rd 21. Can imagine if Taylor & Viney believe in him as a player chances are we've already picked up the phone.

    Ed Langdon

    Most noteworthy are Dylan Shiel, Stephen Coniglio, Nick Haynes, Steven May, Lachie Neale & Robbie Gray who are all RFA's. Jack Martin also comes out of contract, but would be a year short of free agency under current rules. Would love the club to have a crack at bringing him to Melbourne.

    Go and get Gaff!

    True, and he wasn't pleased with us over the Watts trade last year, but Connors is a pro and speaks highly of our list and direction. We are almost a completely different club to the one Juddy visited in '07.
