  1. Tom McDonald Ready to Re-sign

    The interest thing is he was drafted as a forward so it should not be a big surprise that he is a good kick for goal.
  2. Tom McDonald Ready to Re-sign

    Have you forgotten the one with a foot injury who never played again or the x captain who was out for two years and the faded away to SA? Or the current player who after 18 months is still not even running, foot injurys are amongst the worst. The comment was made when discussing player durability. It is unlikely but not impossible.
  3. Yep D77 after 53 years I must be nuts.

    Dr IMO consistence is our major problem a large number of our players are good for two quarters passable in one and totally missing in the other or great one week and unnoticed the next e.g. Petracca.

    I think that we have different views of his ability, I think he is the equal of our best players different but equal. If I were a recruiter he would be top of my list and he is available this year for a low recruitment cost. On top of that he has proven to be very durable he is seldom out injured so you get a player that has a high chance of playing 95 % of the games in his contract. Viney may not play again, Gawn struggles to play on average 66% of games, Hogan even worse.

    I don't think we are far apart on him Wiseblood. i have watched a lot of our players over the years who are good at everything except kicking lose us vital games. If you cannot kick well you are a liability IMO.

    The gig problem wise is his kicking is not AFL level standard. I did not see the games last night's but serveral have reported the poor kicking continued. Poor kicking costs games. Today I watched the tigers / giants game. Poor kicking cost GWS that game. I am not a fan.

    There is a first time for everything dc.

    Spot on Dante I agree 100% and the last para is exactly me. If the Dees finished tomorrow so would my interest in AFL.

    I disagree with five of the above Mr. Shadow he is easily the in the top five most valuable players. Viney, Hogan and Gawn have suspect bodies that could easily reduce the number of games they play. And their value to the team. Lever looks good but at this point he has not played one game for the MFC and Trac shows promise but has not delivered beyond that.

    ET there are some things I can believe that is not one of them. The AFL letting a club decide something !

    100% agreement Ernest it is the sad reality of sport in 2018. If it was not for my blind devotion to the Dees I would have nothing to do with it.

    Just as well you had those two words in different sentences. Pinot is the nectar of the Gods and the other is the swill of Collingwood supporters.
