  1. Tomas Bugg Opens Up

    Well written, well timed. Lets see how he goes earning his spot. Accuracy in front of goal would help his cause....
  2. The Jake Lever Thread

    At the moment we are all speculating about speculation. As I understand it, there are no deals done outside of the trade period. We have not even spoken to Adelaide. Reporters can ask players a question "Would you like Lever at the Dees"? And report the answer (creating news) . So far, I have not seen an unsolicited statement from anyone. We should not even be talking to him now as he prepares for the finals matches in front of him. We may have spoken to his agent, but the rest is either 'pre-negotiation signalling' or speculation. All the flogs in the media who suggest picks and players know NUTHINK. I am pleased that the Dees play things close to their chests, and dont leak these days, only signal. We are not the only ones in the running for Lever. When he comes out in the media and selects us as his preferred destination - then GAME ON!
  3. The Jake Stringer Thread

    The club could also be scapegoating him - the whole Doggies outfit under-performed this year, based upon their premiership last year. Didn't make the 8. Would be like us blaming Jack Watts for everything that goes wrong at the club (hold on....) Until we do due diligence, we can't know. I suspect that there are elements of truth in he is a [censored]/he has problems outside of the game/ he has relational issues at the club. Whether he is a bloke that needs a fresh start in a great environment, or is damaged goods - I hope the FD can work this out quick.
  4. Trade rumours

    The olny fly in the ointment is that we are getting rid of Spencer. We have no 'insurance' if Gawn goes, and the ruck concept comes back into fashion. We need good big men that can take contested marks (we were thrashed in this department all year). Gawn is worth more than Lever, so we would want to get a bucketload back if we were to allow him to move. It would strike me as nuts, but I am not the FD. Better is to redefine Gawn as a forward/ruck and rotate him more heavily.
  5. The Jake Lever Thread

    They want two first round picks - sounds like they get their bargaining strategies from Demonland. They low balled him at $300k, they knocked back a good offer for Gibbs. I think we need to approach this with clear air - We should pay fair, but not overs to Adelaide for the trade. He wants to come, so let him! Offer a pack of burger rings and a used toothbrush, and lowball them for starters...
  6. The Jake Stringer Thread

    Wow. Not so long ago an 'untouchable', would have thought. Hope we do our due diligence and make the right call. We dont need any weatherboard 'fixer-uppers' with a quirky features and vendors set to sell. We need to find the 'hidden gem' that will add straight away to our system and structure.
  7. A 'technical' question: have these 4 been delisted, or just announced that they are going? Ie, free agent, trade, etc still an option?. (is there anything coming back)?
  8. 2017 Player Reviews: # 3 Christian Salem

    I would push him up onto a wing and look for him to provide outside run and lace out delivery inside 50. With Joel Smith, Hunt, Frost, OMac (Lever) and Jetta as a back 6, he should really build his tank in the off season and demand a wing of high hf role. The 'development year' in defence is over..... not traded unless for something of significant value.
  9. Delistings

    No surprises here. Now we upgrade, trade and draft our way to a stronger list.
  10. Trade rumours

    I would not want to trade Weids unless he a) demands to leave, and b) there is a significant upside offer on the table for us. Weid is a good young player that is still developing. OK, he is not yet a 'great', or a 'superstar' - but your footy team rarely has more than a few of those in it. Weids is developing nicely, showed plenty in a few games at VFL level this year, and did OK (again not great) in the AFL. I think we will see a big step up at VFL level next year, with some AFL games - and in 2019 he will be a solid (sometimes spectacular) contributor to our forward line at AFL level. Worth hanging on to, unless something significant is on offer. A required player, but not 'untouchable' for mine.
  11. Depth issues

    Adding two teams to the comp and giving oodles of priority of talent selection means that the 'depth' for everyone else- including us- was diminished. GWS have no problems with depth. The Swans had 10 players on the park yesterday that came from their rookie list. FMD! Depth relies on selecting talent, developing it, and getting rid of those who don't fit the bill. We need 'depth', but first we need a core list that pushes the squad to either do what Is required or be 'depth'. I don't think we have a core 25 yet. I reckon we are about 70% of the way there in terms of 'talent', and about 60% in terms of development (including the leadership, resilience and mental stuff). I think I would have rated us 40%/40% before Roos. we are on the way, but we will have 'depth' only when these parameters are improved again for 2018. I agree that being ruthless in holding everyone accountable for their actions is part of it.
  12. AFL Finals - Week 1

    I am so bloody sick of all of this 'redemption' [censored] about the bombers. It was self imposed, knowingly CHEATING on an organisational scale. No fairytale here. I hope the Swans absolutely tear them a new one tonight. Shame, scum, shame.
  13. AFL Finals - Week 1

    The AFL will want a Sydney team and a 'fairytale'. Watch the umpiring assist on this basis. Now Adelaide got up, the Swans should get the lollies from the maggots. Personally, I want the Bombers to get such a flogging that Daniher thinks he is in the showers with Jobe. Adelaide let us down last week (bastards). Port are pretenders, and the [censored] away from Symons lose their three best players (usually wearing Yellow) and will require Dangerwood to be prolific. WCE are flat track bullies and likely straight set losers, even though Port have no chance in later rounds. Richmond are an interesting case study. Ninth last year, flag this year sounds like a trend I could follow... So, Sydney,Richmond, Port.
