  1. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Why did the players have to go to the union to air their concerns? why couldn’t they approach management and coaches with their issues? why was the boot camp scheduled if the players didn’t find it useful? why was it only cancelled st thsaid last minute and not 9 months ago? too many unanswered question for my liking
  2. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    So the players are questioning the expertise of the coaching and medical staff? Tail wagging the dog
  3. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    This is an absolute joke. It shows a clear lack of communication and trust between the players and coaching staff. There would have been so much time and effort in arranging this camp only for it to be called off at the last minute. goodwin doesn’t have the buy in from the players. Serious alarm bells
  4. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Essendon are coming off a 4 day break.... loss??? Our manic game style suits etihad.
  5. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    We get queens bday and Anzac eve both of which are much bigger than Friday night. Taking those into account we have 1 x Friday night game and 2 additional blockbuster games. No complaints from me
  6. Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    Can pick him up with a later pick..
  7. Peter Jackson on SEN 24/10/17

    The club could have negotiated harder on lever and pick 31 for watts is unders. No reason why we can’t expect the best from the recruiting staff...
  8. 2017 Player Reviews: # 25 Tom McDonald

    Super excited to see Tom up forward next year. He is a good mark, has real strength and strong endurance. I can see him top 5 goal kickers in the league. 50-60 in very achievable. A solid pre season with the forward coaches will see him improve even more
  9. End of year delistings

    FD are starting to plan for 2018. My understanding is that we need a minimum of 3 free spots. Definite outs: Lumumba Contract ending 2017: VandenBerg, Kennedy, JKH, Hulett, Mitch King, White, Tim Smith, Trengove Have no idea how Garland got 3 years. Contract ends 2018. I'm thinking: Lumumba, Kennedy, Hulett and White. Trengove might get rookie listed or traded for a late round pick. Thoughts?
  10. Trade rumours

    He was even more impressed with $800k per year
  11. Farewell Jack Watts

    That’s an appalling list...
  12. Farewell Jack Watts

    Pathetic outcome for Melbourne. This trading period could have been negotiated so much better.
  13. Farewell Jack Watts

    Will be ecstatic with pick 22...
  14. Farewell Jack Watts

    I wonder if all your 8300 previous posts are as idiotic as this one
  15. Farewell Jack Watts

    30 at this point is a win... Melbourne could stuff this deal even more and we are forced to take pick 50.
  16. Farewell Jack Watts

    Agree... Melbourne handled this terribly. I’d hate for them to be negotiating on my behalf
  17. Farewell Jack Watts

    Motlop comp is 35
  18. Farewell Jack Watts

    Port had salary cap issues before the trade and rockliff and motlop haven’t helped the situation. Can’t see watts fitting in especially if Melbourne aren’t wanting to pay for his wages. In addition their first pick in the draft is pick 30. Can’t see them giving this up for watts
  19. Farewell Jack Watts

    With which pick and how much cash? Dees will want low second round pick this year. Cats have pick 21, 34 and will get 35 for motlop. They will need to offer 34 or 35 to GC for Ablett and won’t give up pick 21 for watts. Cant see Melbourne accepting 35
  20. Farewell Jack Watts

    Only Port are within cooee of offering what Melbourne want and that’s pick 29. Unfortunalty for us non pressuring forwards are out of favour.

    Supporters have an expectation that the club is ruthless on and off the field. Mediocracy hasn’t got us far for the last 60 years

    And pick up a player that doesn’t want to join your club and on top of that suddenly come up with $800k on a maxed out salary cap. No chance
  23. Farewell Jack Watts

    The club also doesn’t want to let him go for pick 40

    There is talk that Melbourne are considering giving up 1st pick for 2017 and 2018. If we agree to Adelaide’s demands then it shows that our recruiting department have no idea. Grow some balls, stick by your original plan and make Adelaide sweat that lever will walk away for nothing. As it stands at the moment lever isn’t even in your top ten best players... only a top 10 player in the whole league is worth 2 first picks
