    Poll: The Zurich Logo

    Yep this ad is so representative of the "dark" times

    Poll: The Zurich Logo

    All companies have guidelines on their logo. I work for a large multinational company and logo guidelines are very strict. I imagine that having two different colours behind the Zurich logo would be against company guidelines for using logo. Zurich is large global company that would need hq signoff for all use of logo. Unfortunately I can't see this changing
  3. Sounds like the type we have built our team on hard working , tough like that he has speed.

    2019 Fixture

    based on last years form and those of the teams we are playing we should be able to get 14-16 wins based on this draw

    Knightmare's 2013 Pre-draft player Analysis

    Nailed this part on Hogan Will need to work on set shot goal kicking routine – just doesn’t look as fluid as you’d ideally like to see and as a result his set shot goal kicking seems to suffer. I will miss Jessie but not any part of when he was lining up for goal

    2019 best 22 and depth chart

    We need a crumbing forward that consistantly tackles (& can stick them) as well as 2nd and 3rd effort pressure acts, that aint Jeffy

    Rubbish comment Omac gets exposed at times due to poor pressure up the ground but reads it quite well and wins a lot of 1 on 1's his disposal is also good. People seem to remeber 2 years ago Omac not the player we have now.

    Official New Rule Changes for 2019

    Also if I see a 100m penalty against viney like the one they showed in the example I will loose my S$%t . deadset ridiculous. The in the back is going to be horrible as well. I though the dangerfield example was a clear pushing motion and the Cripps wasn't . But hey extra allowance for Danger is standard

    Official New Rule Changes for 2019

    I don't get this one , a point gets scored and defensive team can just run it in handball kick whatever from any position behind the goal line. Meanwhile attacking team (now defensive) will have the umpire calling them back to be 10m away from the goal square. PLayer kicking in should always have to go through the square and what if the kicking in team decides to kick in before player has a chance to run back to 10m will that be a free kick?

    This is not as crazy as it sounds. With contracts being worth nothing and players doing what they want I could see Jesse signing a 5 year deal with Freo then requesting a trade back to us in 2 years.

    Demonland Podcast Featuring Peter Jackson (17/10)

    How did he feel at the B&F when 1600 supporters gave him a well deserved standing O Favorite 2 or 3 wins during his time Worst losses, both gut wrenching. eg the Geelong game after the siren and ones where he though I'm not sure if are on the right track here. What does he think of the plans for the new base near jolimont station, is it relistic how far away are we?

    Ben Long

    I have not been impressed with him , I have watched him 4-5 times and every time thought he looked below AFL standard. He might prove me wrong and come good but I am not that excited by the prospect of him joining us.

    Poor Viney or Macca family in this scenario , I know we have host families that go above and beyond but having this loose unit in your house with a 9PM , no alcohol rule is a disaster idea.

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    I rate Pruess above Hickey, bigger stronger more upside. average to better than average midfielders are are dime a dozen ruckmen have more currency proven by 2nd rounder for Hickey in an open draft Pruess would get selected before Hickey so as I mentioned before a straight swap is a win for us

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    Looking like Tyson for Pruess straight swap. Alot will argue about the number of games played etc and that we are getting unders but I think it's good for us. Our 5-6th best mid out for the best available ruckman. If Pruess went in the draft he would go in the 20-30 range minimum which is about right for Tyson and fills a much bigger need for our list.

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

    that would be a horrible outcome. I'd prefer we try and get a ready made player back like a George Hewett

    Nearest to the pin for how many pages this thread will be when we know what the final outcome is. I've got 417 pages
