  1. The Liam Ryan thread

    He doesn’t put on any defensive pressure or work hard for his team. Hats why he was overlooked. He ca kick a bag if given space, but likely won’t have much impact at AFL level IMO. Will be a late pick air most likely a rookie pick to a WA club.
  2. The Matthew Ling Thread

    He’s the perfect fit for us. He’s everything we need in our midfield. Outside pace, good agility, good kicking skills, bit of aggression so goes when it’s his turn and lays a good tackle. Hopefully he falls to us at pick 29 but being a Geelong boy I don’t think he’ll slip past Geelong in the early-mid 20s.
  3. Hopefully we win a flag by 2918! I’d like to see one in my life time, and preferably not have to find a way to live 900 years for that to happen
  4. NOW FOR THE DRAFT

    We need outside midfielders with pace and small forwards to lock the ball into our forward line and crumb. Gryan Miers would be perfect as a small forward, but might go before our pick now after his 7 goal BOG grand final performance. If he's there at our picks, he's a perfect choice and could play AFL seniors quickly if he gets through preseason. He's got skills, hits the scoreboard regularly and is a smart ball user who brings his teammates into the game with quick hands too. Matthew Ling would be a decent option as an outside midfielder. He's got good pace, puts in defensively and has decent skills. His weakness is finding ball and consistency. In an AFL club environment he could be taught where to run to get more ball and thus build consistency. If he's available at any of our picks I'd take him. Petrucelle is another quick midfielder and definitely has potential, but his kicking is all over the place and I'm not sure if it can be fixed. Ed Richards has scope to become a good quick midfielder. He's played more down back as a rebounding defender, but he has good pace and kicking skills and could develop into a midfielder. Would be a good target.
  5. Josh Schache

    Bulldogs did well to land him. He's a pick 2. Obviously a big talent. Get him back to Victoria where he is around family and friends and is comfortable again and he will blossom. Trading 2nd round picks in a weak draft is easily worth that risk.
  6. Trade rumours

    Disappointing we weren't able to upgrade some of those 2nd round picks. Multiple clubs have done picks swaps near the end here. Tigers traded pick 15 down to Brisbane for similar 2nd round picks. That should've been our trade right there. Could've gone to draft with a first rounder or passed on the first rounder for a decent player or prospect such as Schache. As it stands we hold multiple second round picks in a weak draft. Not much chance any of the players we pick there will make it. Disappointing result all up, but good to land Lever.
  7. Trade rumours

    Cmon Dees upgrade some of those second rounders!
  8. Love where he keeps the ball alive by bumping his opponent over the line the gathering the ball and firing off a quick handless to a teammate. Also love how he smothered the ball over the line to lock it in their forward line and prevent the rebound. He's got footy smarts and goes when it's his turn.
  9. Love he said his aim is to play afl seniors in round 1 2018. Didn’t give an answer about building up or consistency or anything, he’s said he’s gonna train hard and aim for round 1. Love the confidence. This kid has talent and could wind up a good player for us. Definitely feel he is more talented than a lot of depth we’ve had the last few years.
  10. Great get for pick 66. As I said in this thread yesterday, if he can stay healthy and have consistency in his life, he could become an asset for us. Welcome to the club Harley!
  11. Farewell Jack Watts

    Hang on, we took unders in pick 31 AND we're still paying part of his salary? MFC have unarguably [censored] this up. What a let down, but at the same time I'm not surprised at all having followed this lowly club for decades of failure now
  12. Farewell Jack Watts

    Port Adelaide have just brought in Rockcliff, Motlop and Watts.... for a total cost of pick 31. Comparatively, we've brought in Lever, but have lost Watts and 2 first round picks. Paid overs and let quality go for unders. The late pick shuffling are irrelevant unless tied to a player trade as they will produce speculative kids at best.
  13. Farewell Jack Watts

    Best of luck to Jack at Port. He deserves better than the club gave him from the start. Had far to much pressure placed upon him, didn't handle the media correctly at any point, and then had his development thrown around and never got to settle in a position for more than a year or two. He's an obvious talent who the club mismanaged. He deserves better, and I hope he flourishes at Port. Good luck Jack and thanks for the memories. Must've watched that Queens Bday goal 50 times over!
  14. Farewell Jack Watts

    Port Adelaide, a direct competitor to us in the 5-8 bracket have just brought in Rockcliff, Motlop and Watts.... for a total cost of pick 31. They've had a tremendous trade period. Comparatively, we've brought in Lever, but have lost Watts and 2 first round picks. Paid overs and let quality go for unders. The late picks are irrelevant unless tied to a player trade as they will produce speculative kids at best. The club better package those 2nd round picks up and make something happen or we've had a poor trade period and lost further ground on our direct finals competitors.
  15. Farewell Jack Watts

    The club better be packaging that pick 31 up with some other stuff to advance ourselves in the draft or land another quality player, otherwise it is a poor trade and we've been robbed this trade period.
