  1. Josh Kelly to Dees?

    Yeah. To be honest it would be really out of the ordinary if it did. We all only have our suspicions.
  2. Buckley's Demise

    Pumped that Bucks might stay. Richest club in the land and completely hamstrung by egos. If they keep him it'll be about Eddie and how they think they're better than everyone else. It'll blow up in their faces and we get to watch them implode year after year.
  3. Josh Kelly to Dees?

    Is that right? Wow. News to me. You have to wonder though where they rated him. They had picks 65 and 77... One used for Langdon who is also a defender. So you may be right to point it out. I have to wonder though, when did they come out and say they wanted him? Was it mid draft? In the leadup? Or two years after when he exploded? If the latter, then I don't believe that. Everyone says "I knew he'd be a jet" after the fact. I reckon they might have rookied him at best. My point is that if you make a deal involving pick 2 and 9 with Tyson involved... The later pick is a matter of "just get me in that round somewhere." It's not the same as, say, Oliver... who, had we waited on him and taken Weed, he'd DEFINITELY had gone to the Dons after us. The AFL draft is all about rounds 1 and 2. Round 3 is a little bit more of "choose your random guy" creeping in... and after that, it's essentially guys who noone really wanted that much. If you take a look at USA sports drafts, they're very similar... rounds 1 and 2 serious. Rounds 3-4 less important role players. Rounds 5-7 meh. I reckon had the giants included their fourth rounder (72, which they passed on) we may well still have gotten our man. I have to admit rpfc, I'm not following the second sentence (try not to string me up for it lol). I don't agree though. A first rounder isn't a 3rd rounder... and neither are the same as rookies. The trade was all about Salem and Tyson vs Kelly... Everyone knew what Tyson was and that Kelly was the consensus pick 2. The Hunt pick was smart recruiting and scouting... but an afterthought in the trade itself. The Giants didn't even use the 4th rounder we spat back at them.

    This Kraken guy? Cowboys fan... I'm gonna make him my [censored].
  5. NFL

    @Kraken Might want in too.
  6. Josh Kelly to Dees?

    Yeah people say that. I don't buy it. I reckon had we waited for another round, or waited for rookies he'd still be ours. He was completely out of nowhere. Noone saw him coming. Incidental where the pick was.
  7. Josh Kelly to Dees?

    I'd be a bit annoyed. I mean we have Salem and Tyson. But the fact we could have had him for just one first rounder, and will have to give up way more to get him now is a bit embarrassing.
  8. Was just about best on for us. Not just for shut down job and disposals... but the fact that every time he was called upon he smashed a player or got the ball and made a positive effect. He's Hibberd like right now. Not to bring it back to negativity, as he's done more than enough to be absolutely best 22 this year and next... but I still worry about his role going forward.
  9. Embrace it

    I'm embracing it. We've won 12 games. We're ahead of .500 for the first time in ever.
  10. Clarence Oliver

    12 clearances from our single season clearance record currently held by Beamer. Not sure if clearances in finals count, or if it's for just the 22 weeks. Highest possession average for a season is held by Jones in 2016, and stands at 28.05 for 22 games. That's 617 touches. Clarry has 629 and broke Nathan's record in the third quarter on Sunday. If he gets 31 touches against pies, he'll crack 30 for the home and away season. And he hasn't even started planning his 21st.
  11. Jesse Hogan's Return

    I see what you did there.
  12. The Cam Pedersen Appreciation Thread

    Fabric player. What a gun. We're lucky to have him.
  13. Changes versus Collingwood

    Frost has to come in. The dash is badly needed. I think Watts should as well. It'll depend a lot on how Goody feels about what Dunn, Howe and potentially Schade bring to the table. Salem also probably should be slotted in. We badly need that skill. Wagner out... not doing enough. Stretch looked awful. And I think Hannan is lacking just a little. I have a strong feeling Bugg has some more to prove this season. And boy oh boy... do we ever need fresh legs. Looked like we were running with lead-legs the whole game.
  14. GAMEDAY - Round 22

    Is it just my poor maths, or does a big percentage boosting win mean we make finals?

    Congratulations pedo!
