    Tom Campbell

    Tom played ruck and forward for Bulldogs VFL this year, knows Hannan real well. Had over 70 hit outs one game followed by 60 next game with 6 contested marks. Kicks like a mule - these new rule changes will suit him down to the ground. Had several injuries but fully on top of them now. Looks like being delisted - great pick up in my opinion. Have recommended him to recruitment. Known to Chris Connolly. To me a great pick up if can pass medical. Better than Preuss in my opinion. More experienced, better ruckman whom can go forward and kick goals.

    Please note that is over the last 3 years not one game and Campbell was voted 2nd best for Bulldogs in that DeeSpenser report.

    Good to hear from you Tom, Campbell would have been a beauty for the Dees.Give my regards to John and Hugh for me....a missed opportunity which I am savage about.Keep on barracking for Fish Creek .

    Fair points you make, however, it was my understanding English played in that match and Tom played basically full forward which is not his rightful position.As Roughhead was interviewed by the Dees , I am told, Campbell would have been either a good backup to Max, a great development for Pruess whilst at least 9ne of these most probably playing at Casey developing Bratke. This did not happen so, we will await the season to see how these players have gone.

    No several others have joined me.....sooner have a ruckman more proven than Pruess on my books.Campbell has killed him in games previously.We will wait and see “What hapopens:” in 2019.but note, all I am crowing about is ....sooner have 3 possible ruckman than 2 .Could have picked up Campbell as a SSP rookie,Campbell is far more proven than Pruess.Campbell had 72 hit outs followed by 60 in the next game ,was an emergency on 3 occasions yet did not get on with Beveridge ,similar to Roughead, Dahlhaus etc..I have trained with the Bulldogs at Victoria College for years .Campbell was interviewed and tested by Essendon, Adelaide and North and had enquiries ,I believe from Suns, Brisbane and Swans.....therefore genuine interest for many.As stated, I believe he was a classic case for us to bring on Pruess as well as a backstop for Gawn.Also, he played many games last year at Full forward .Therefore, a ruckman/ forward type..Anyhow, we will see whom WINS out, and if indeed I was the only one picking Campbell was, so be it..Drysdale demon...lovely little place Drysdale By the way DD have a look at the Herald sun and AFL .com to see the reports they have had in the last week on him... y the way, he could have gone to Brisbane last year.but stayed and honoured his contract.

    Tom Campbell as stated has signed with North and had first training run today...a missed opportunity in my opinion .He has belted Pruess before hand and Scott believes he can play senior footie next season.

    At least they have testicles , just ask Gary Lyon on this point, as well as C.C.

    Can see that Keilty could play forward but need to do something next draft to cover weakness on list.

    Fair point....will be interesting to see how all play out.

    I would love to be able to recruit your dad now.

    Tom Campbell

    Refer to AFL.com.au for the announcement of Tom being recruited by North as I stated earlier.

    Not jumping at shadows at all, rjay.Just looking at our list and draft picks and equating things like that .If Daisycutter is right and we still have a vacancy on the list as well as a further rookie pick,we, then, may be as smart as Richmond are doing re Stack training with them...we may pick up a player like McLean to develop and try out as a list member. whilst I support you raise, I believe, we should pick up another tall at least on our list as we have only 3 tall forwards as such and 2 developed ruckman and Bratke. We may even see Gawn play a pivotal role in the forward line and Pruess ruck..but I still feel we need more talls now.

    Tom Campbell

    I will and hope Casey pick up a ruckman and a tall forward.
  16. jayceebee31

    Tom Campbell

    I agree with Pruess coming , but another back up ?,whilst we tried out Bratke to me was a must..We will see .

    Tom Campbell

    Hi, I disagree totally, they were extremely lucky getting away with Maxie, not going down at all this year.If he had, we were stuffed.Did you see , what happened in the grand final at Casey, no ruckman, and unable to not get it out of the guts.This, in my opinion ,cost us the game. if you decifer the list, we have at least 12 midfielders, 9 small/ half forward flankers whilst we have 2 ruckman and 3 tall forwards, inclusive of T.Smith. I say, this ,is NOT a balanced list at all. This list requires at least another quality tall forward and a quality developmental ruckman.

    Tom Campbell

    I also understand your point of view and I agree.But, to be able to pick up a ruckman as a rookie, such as Campbell would have been a worthwhile in my opinion.To have at least 7 small forwards on our list rather than 3 ruckman, is the factor I question. Tom was interviewed by Essendon, Adelaide and North Melbourne and will join North this week whilst Melbourne showed no interest.I question this attitude.And the fact that Chris Connolly knew his family extemely well and somebody like Kelly O’Donnell played with him...a further factor I question why did he not even get interviewed .He passed a medical at 3 clubs that interviewed him. It is over now, but, we need to pick up someone in a year or two if Bratke does not seem to make it..hope he does .

    Our Tall Forwards

    Better than none provided in this draft as a back up.He had still another year left in him.Was an emergency in most of our finals in 18.

    I agree

    It is up to our list management as well as our recruitment arm to make sure Sh*t does NOT happen.
  22. jayceebee31

    Tom Campbell

    Fair point.....and so must I, but, if one of our only two rucks go down....what happens then...also, If TMac goes down or Weid does not come up, then...we can blame the club...agree?
  23. jayceebee31

    Our Tall Forwards

    Thank you....I will bet he does not play full forward in the opening round for Casey next year.
  24. jayceebee31

    Our Tall Forwards

    Hope you are correct....but...has a hell of a lot of development to do.I feel they will try to develop him as a ruckman.
  25. jayceebee31

    Our Tall Forwards

    I thought he was a ruck type. Where did you get this information from.?
