    2018 Demonland Banner 2.0

    IMO, Petracca & Hunt were added to the Demonland Banner Prematurely. They still play like boys, instead of Men. Please, leave the young ones off until such time as they have gone way past a breakout game ans are performing week in week out.. Nev should have been added a couple of seasons ago.... and hunt and petracca still shouldn't be up there, as yet. imho. ... getting onto the 'Dl' Banner, is too cheap and easy, atmo. .

    I don't think Mahoney sees his job as finished, and I am sure he would want to be at our 'Bow' when we approach a Grand Final. I don't think Josh is going anywhere, Aand this thread is about Mahoney, not about the next CEO. Josh's job is contract players, or moving them on.

    I think "the higher draft pick" only highlights the players name more... and they may even feel the pressure of expectation themselves, from the first time they cross the threshold of our home base. Weide was an early pick, so was Curnow. Watts in players minds, either makes or breaks them. The attitude begins the first time they come to the club. So if we make to nice, they may get too comfortable. Alternately if we behave too aloof, to them they may struggle without enough support. Dee Culture inside, and outside our club, creates what we get back. As long as the player strives for their best constantly. (see Jones... survived deespite the weak culture).

    End of season bonus payments.

    Maybe it depends upon a given club and whether the club is under or over the salary cap. ? It might be an adjustment to right any wrongs, within it's sCap.?

    Josh when will you announce any new contract extension, to Sam Weideman ???
  8. I have always believed in players being able to shift roles ever since 'Barass' came back to coach us. And he took Flower off the Wing, and used him in a multitude of roles... improving Robbies abilities. Similarly kicking as well on either foot. Both these thing are invaluable to aid the side... and upset the oppositions team balance and structures.

    Dylan Shiel

    Just think its worth an enquiry to Dylan's manager. He is contracted til end of 2019, but that Giant Beanstalk seems to be withering. Will he wither on the Vine? Also Lachie Whitfield, but he is contracted til end of 2020. But this could be better for us re available trades for use ?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    This is the new improved "Gill's equalisation" at work, I think.
  13. And this is what we want. All our Forwards and Mids working backsides off, and kicking goals. Shut one down, another pops up. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjvrYvq0YzeAhXHR30KHavgByIQjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Flookhere3.wordpress.com%2Ftag%2Fcat-gifs%2F&psig=AOvVaw3QXi-AtnkOgSeYoMnWesAq&ust=1539836942091667

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Yes but Neale wants out, and has said so publicly... the deal will be done. I am sure. Even his mate from the Cats has already made arrangements to join the Lions. I think the Lions will end up uppin' their anbte` for Neale... watt goes around, comes back around.... Just like Halley's.
  17. I think they will be off loading some more top young talents in (2019)... ones who started off the wrong way in a lousy club culture. The cleanup will take a little while, and more mature footy heads have been recruited. Dewy is doing things right, now... there won't be any quicky fix, up on the Gold Coast. They are rebuilding that footyclub... and the contesting. The next thing then, they will aim for, is to get to being a destination club,,, as we aimed for. For these reasons, I think they will recruit young guns this year... to start them off with discipline and doing the hard work.

    Belly's way of saying he's taking a shorts troll. a mini break, a bye moment. I think he'll be diligent again, very soon. Or Ross is not the Boss. .
