    How the New Recruits are Tracking

    Thanks for this amusing anecdote Saty. Toby is lucky to be learning from a master. From his first game, it was obvious that if you got tackled by Nev, you stayed tackled .. and it may well hurt.

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    tiers. ‘As weagles showed this year, two ruckmen are better than one if used intelligently. Highlights of Preuss show a big, strong, mobile, marking ruckman who can score goals. Imagine Maxie patrolling the backline and Preuss frightening the opposition in the forward line. If this can be pulled off it could be the master stroke of the decade.’ Reminds me of those glory days when Strawbs O’Dwyer and the great Jimmy Stynes owned the MCG.

    Electrifying Aboriginal forwards

    The Wizard. Sometimes he stood on the shoulders of giants.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Call their bluff. If you don’t have single digit picks, then we’ll take Cerra and Brayshaw ... and maybe we’ll throw in a second round bone.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    You can build a team around a young man like Jesse Hogan. Cerra and Brayshaw might be excellent players but you won’t build a team around them. Freo has to pay up big.

    Anton Tohill

    I remember Sean White playing full back. Hell, he was very good and just the sort of man to nullify the best like Gary Ablett Snr.

    1964 memories- calling our older supporters

    In 1964 all radio was from a power point. There were no transistor radios. I listened to the grand final as a twelve year old on the family radiogram. I was there for ‘87 and at Waverley too. The Dees have unfinished business. Momentum and belief are powerful forces when combined. Step aside. We’re on our way.

    Eddie shows love for Dees

    Too right. The MCG - our ground.

    David King thinks Eagles will Belt Us.

    They were missing a couple of players. Add Jack Viney to the mix this time.

    Last chance for Kennedy-Harris?

    The Dees have good depth in their team now. Consider: When Essendon was a power Gary O’Donnell played 50 reserves games before he made his debut. And then he went on to captain them. JFK has plenty of time. Melbourne is a good side and a hard side to break into.

    Sam Weideman

    He’ll be fine Sam. Tom McDonald hit his straps around age 24. Expect the same from Oscar and Sam.

    Don’t give the entertainment away. Step it up instead. Make it a race right around the boundary line with more than one competitor.

    Go and get Gaff!

    The Dees already have the men required to win a premiership. They don’t need to go looking for the likes of Gaff, and in his case the attendant flak. What is lacking remains above their shoulders only. Perhaps they turned a corner against the Suns on Sunday when they won a game ‘they should win.’

    Don’t want him at the club. Angus Brayshaw will be more important to us.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Gaff should do twice the time of his victim.
