  1. 2018 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    This kid can play just a little bit ~ Lukosius stars in top draftee showdown

    Wow. I didn’t realise you were so old Redleg. You make Old Dee look like a absolute whippersnapper.
  3. 2018 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Tassie has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. Here are a couple of youngsters from the Apple Isle who are hoping to make an impact as the year progresses ~ Pair poised to ease Tassie's long draft drought

    Says who? I told you about Bailey Fritsch months before we drafted him when he was just a kid with a dream playing in the VFL.
  5. Preseason Training Week commencing 19 February 2018

    He looked very close to getting back on Saturday at Casey Fields but I would also add that so did Jack Viney and nobody seems to be putting a definite time on his return.

    So the eye gouging allegation was fake news?
  7. Preseason Training Week commencing 19 February 2018

    According to the melbournefc.com.au website the only men’s open training session is on Wednesday ~ “Wednesday 21st February, 9.30am, Gosch's Paddock”

    I was walking around the ground and also watched JV closely and agree. I would add that, when watching him from close quarters, you can see and feel the intensity in everything he attempts. He was pretty aggro yesterday and is going to be a real weapon when he eventually gets himself fit.

    I believe AVB will miss at least the first month of the season if not more. He does provide a point of difference for the attack but given the demands of the game and the need for a proper pre season he’s going to start from a long way back.

    As mentioned in my post above, the focus was mainly on match simulation involving fast movement and switch play but there were a variety of drills earlier and these included most of the available list bearing in mind that the squad of players from the victorious AFLX team were no doubt enjoying a morning off. The two important players who missed most of the first half of last year through injury and non-football related circumstances - Jesse Hogan and Max Gawn - both looked in good shape and ready to have a big impact in 2018. Others who impressed me were Michael Hibbberd and Christian Salem both in terms of looking fit and raring to go but also in their attack on the footy. Its interesting that although Hibberd and our AFLX star Jake Melksham (obviously, he wasn’t there yesterday) had good seasons in 2017, they both look ready to take giant steps up this year. Good signs. I mentioned the small rehab group of Jack Viney (looking huge and aggressive) and Sam Weideman who were joined by Joel Smith and Jeff Garlett. Dom Tyson’s injury was apparently to his calf. No sign of AVB. Nathan Jones was mopping things up coming out through defence and Mitch Hannan moved well. Of the newbies Harley Balic looked comfortable and at home with the group. Charlie Spargo looks a real goer and Oskar Baker is going to be a bit of a cult hero. I reckon Jake Lever might go ok this year. Clayton Oliver is looking in good shape and had enough sunblock on his face, arms and legs to convince me to take out a portfolio of shares in that industry.

    I’m down at Casey Fields and there’s a special atmosphere down here ... almost as if it was a continuation of last night’s action. There’s music blaring as the boys go through their drills. There are no food trucks but you can smell the hot dogs being sold by the South East Demons. They’re doing match simulation in front of me and Hoges (matched up on Oscar) kicked the first goal and then our marked Oscar, then hit the post. Clarry’s Looking good - he just hit Mitch Hannan on the chest for a goal. There’s a small rehab group at the sidelines - Jack Viney and Sam Weideman who are both moving well. Jack looks like a mallee bull. They’ve been joined by Joel Smith and Jeff Garrlett who earlier were involved in the training drills. Earlier Dom Tyson was with the rehab group but he appeared to be in a bit of discomfort.

    It’s like 1988 all over again!!!

    Never in doubt.
  14. Tilbrook and Lever

    I think Tilbrook's manager was one Richard M Nixon. Things didn't work out well for either he or Diamond Jim the footballer.

    That wouldn’t be Phat Phil, R & B. According to my NSW informants, he can’t fit into the change rooms at Giant HQ. Not only that, it’s rumoured that he’s involved in pre-production for the Ten Network’s forthcoming new lifestyle series, “My Three Tons”.
