    Tomas Bugg Announces Retirement

    ITK - "influencer"
  2. He is General Manager - List and Strategy. If I worked there I would expect him to lead on draft night.
  3. Don't agree with that at all. He looks like a pro who is on top of the deals to me. They picked McLennan because he wants to go there! Loves surfing, dad from Brisbane.

    Does Height matter that much?

    For a team that prizes the contest we we woeful at the aerial contest in 2017, particularly with Max out injured or out of form. Any kick down the line was a mark against us. We made some big improvements in that area in 2018 and I think we can make further improvements in 2019.

    Lewis Giving It Everything in 2019

    Good to see Lewis has a similar attitude to Bernie's from last year.

    Casey needs to recruit a ruckman IMO. If plan A is to play Gawn and Preuss in the 1s, who is going to ruck at Casey? For the record I am not an advocate of another ruckman on the MFC list.

    The pre-season supplemental selection period

    That's why you have a solicitor.

    The pre-season supplemental selection period

    I don't think that's correct - I believe there's still 6 clubs with picks ... AFAIK, three of the 6 clubs had 2 vacancies but have committed to one player each, so 6 clubs have one slot left.

    "bit of a nasty surprise" alright

    The pre-season supplemental selection period

    That article sounds misguided to me. To participate in the mid season draft you need one rookie spot free. I reckon a number of the 6 clubs, including hopefully us, go "one short" so we can have a pick then. The "one short" wont hurt - we've already got 45 listed players including Cat B and are likely to use only about 30. Having a mid season pick would allow us to potentially take a Tim Kelly type who emerges at a lower level during the season. If all 6 clubs fill their lists by 1 March then there is no mid season draft AFAIK.

  13. Still shell shocked by the election results?

    Training - Friday 30th November, 2018

    I'm most interested in which groups back, mid, fwd, players are training with - e.g. Joel Smith, Dec Keilty, Bailey Fritsch, KK, VDB, Jayden Hunt and to lesser extent but still interesting - the draftees?
