    2019 Fixture

    It think it was just the timing of ANZAC eve and the decision of Pies to no longer help us out. The flip is 2020 both will be home games. Plus we do play them as a home later in the year.

    VIP Sylvia A big kid at heart. Very sad for it to end so early for him and his family.

    AFLX squad

    We won the first one, thats all that matters, no one will remember who wins the rest. Cause we'll be the quiz night questions answer "winner "Melbourne" I think it was important last year to build confidence. It also helped us in practise some precise kicking and the run to break zones towards the forward line. The format is not that taxing on the players compared to a traditional preseason game. The downside is you can't use them to refine your game style is the real thing.

    Tom Sheridan

    As a DFA I think he worth picking up. Not sure why Freo no longer wanted him, considering who they gave 1 yr contracts too. Handy depth player but could surprise us in a settled role.

    Gee, why did he wear our hat.

    2019 Fixture

    Play the dockers in Perth (instead of WC) I think that will be a given given Hogan trade. They are a waste of time at the G in terms of crowd. Like Rd Pies or geelong - become a regualr QB/ANZAC know our block busters. A few more Friday night games against, Don's, Carlton (For fun), or anyone with a big following.
  7. with good consistent delivery into the forward line we'll kick enough goals. We have Tmac and Weed to break packs and compete when required.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Not sure if it’s been said but Freo haven’t shown up at Marvel stadium yet! Bunch of tools.

    That would be grand to be honest.

    The basically sums it up. From the AFL website wrap for today "That's why the Dockers have been circling him for so long. And that's why it would be disastrous if they let him go when he's finally gettable just because they want a 'win' rather than a 'win-win'. "

    Given the circumstances that may happen. how did the Hawks swing it?

    Would we take $cully back?

    It is being floated and he would give us great outside run, which we currently miss. The question is has his speed and endurance been affected by his broken ankle? Yes he has a lot of history at the club. But we are a totally different club from the one he left. I imagine any discussion would be with the leadership group on whether they agree if the FD decides he is key to get it maybe happen.

    I wonder if we have said to GC, "What can we arrange for May without the Hogan deal". They might be working on a package as a backup, who knows, It depends on what May has told GC. Might be a few players we feel we can swap and still improve our list. Not that I think too many our player want to go North.

    Farewell Dean Kent

    Good luck to Kent. Deal is about right, he has a body made of paper. Breaks down too often for a higher pick.

    This is a spot on comment by one of their own members: "Fremantle during trade week remind me of that fat kid at school who used to go around trying to shaft everyone in basketball card trading deals." Classic. I do remember they tried to get their current forward and then wouldn't part with the picks and screwed him for a year. Why would like you to go a club like that.

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

    Great news. Hopefully he can finally get a good run at it after his injuries. Love his style of play, but he did get pinged a bit when he returned. Hopefully getting fit over the summer he'll break more tackles.

    Why would'nt you. But the reality its Freo and given their history it not a place you would rush to play footy.

    Maybe he met Ross Lyon on his tour and thinks, well gee, its a lot of money but... I think basically Freo can't afford him without losing Neale.

    The Harley Bennell Thread

    Did Peter Bell critics the dockers for resigning him late in the season while a ABC radio presenter? He started on Saturday and I think his first thought was get rid of that dead weight. They should just pay him out for the stupid contract for next year and get rid of him. They are just hoping to move him on with minimal fuss. The guy can't get through 2 games of footy within 6 months. Not to mention his other issues.

    Our workrate

    Just click I saw on Garry Lyon and co. analysing our workmate from the weekend game. Goodwin also highlighted it so its squarely on the players to work harder for the whole game. https://www.news.com.au/video/id-5348771529001-5804318002001/melbournes-horror-workrate-exposed

    But we can choose to match the RFA package if we wish. Assuming Neale leaves and it sounds like he wants to, then picks 4/5 is what Hogan is worth this year. If not we hold him and see what they come up with.

    The Michael Barlow Thread

    Barlow himself see himself at a club like Carlton to take pressure of their major ball winners as they develop.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Our forward works with or without Jesse. Successful forward lines are built on getting the footy down there consistently to create opportunities to score, therefore the mid and backs really decide the game. We have goal kicking mids to support our forwards and two very good existing forwards which will mark or bring it to grounds, and both a have lots of years left so there is no desperate need for Jesse. However, having Jesse roaming the ground would be great for us. But in the end the club holds all the cards they can decide if they want to trade and on what terms for this trade period. Many times clubs haven't traded a player who wanted out and he went onto a great career with that club. How a player feels know doesn't always mean they will be the same in 12 months. Even if we don't get a good deal he is only restricted next year and we can match and then trade him to Freo. I guess its now watch this space.
