  1. Billy Hartung

    I see he remains out of contract and potentially out the door at the Hawks. Would he be a pre-season draft option? He fits the right age profile in that he is only 22.
  2. Brings genuine appetite for the contest in the same mold as: Petracca, Viney, Oliver, Hogan. IMO he is an absolute star in the making.

    I saw Dec with who I assumed were his parents at the international departure lounge last week. Contemplated saying hello but thought I’d leave him in peace. He seemed taller than I remembered from watching Casey play.
  4. Farewell Jack Watts

    Deespicable even the genius at Carlton who selected Curnow, picked Harry McKay ahead of him. Its easy to throw stones in hindsight.
  5. I’m pretty sure I read/heard around the time of the draft he had told interstate clubs not to pick him because he wanted to stay in Melb. I also think from memory he and his family were in tears when he was drafted to Fremantle. If we get him I hope he turns into a gun, but he’s been pretty underwhelming so far.
  6. Harley Balic has passed his medical tests with Melbourne and the Demons are now all but committed to bringing the midfielder across from Fremantle during the NAB AFL Trade Period. Balic has requested a move home to Victoria after two seasons with the Dockers and it is understood Fremantle will now work to facilitate a trade to his club of choice. The 20-year-old took indefinite leave from the club twice this season to deal with a personal issue and returned to Melbourne for a period during the season. What's he worth? The Dockers' starting point in negotiations is likely to be a pick in the 30s or 40s, but they might have to accept a later pick. The Demons hold pick No.45 in the third round and No.64 in the fourth round. Balic was a slider in his draft year of 2015 because of injury after being touted as a top-10 pick, eventually going at No.38. This sounds pretty close now. Passed a medical at the Dees according to AFL website. http://m.afl.com.au/news/2017-10-06/trade-wrap-docker-almost-a-demon

    He's been told to prepare to play midfield next year.
  8. Trade rumours

    RIOLI could be Italian.
  9. God I hope he comes to the Dees.
  10. Trade rumours

    The club would be mad not to at least enquire about Stringer. Brendan McCartney coached him for his first couple of seasons and may know of any issues/mental demons that seem to have plagued him over the past season and a half. Prior to that he looked like becoming a genuine superstar. Those dismissing him would do well to remember that Toby Greene was on the trade table a couple of years ago and is now one of the most damaging players in the comp (admittedly I hate him with a passion). in 2006 a young troublesome player, with similar freakish (but flakey) abilities was nearly traded to Collingwood but failed a medical. Went on to win 3 flags and a Norm Smith. I'd be definitely be asking the question and getting Macca's opinion before dismissing the idea completely.
  11. Another bloody windy day here. Conditions will be very tough at Williamstown I expect.

    I reckon we'll get on a roll. 10 goal win.
  13. Changes versus Collingwood

    When asked yesterday on SEN, Hibberd said that he thought Viney would miss another week.
  14. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    I had us playing Port at Adelaide, winning. Then playing the Tigers in a Semi Final at the MCG. The Tigers lose their first final to GWS. We beat the Tigers, then have to beat Adelaide in Adelaide in the Prelim to make the Grand Final.
