    You have picked the right word: toughness is by some equivalent to thuggery, which is not what we need. We need good players who are super competitive rather than unskilled thugs or soft hearted gazelles. If the gazelle is also competitive then all the better Goodwin and the recruiting and development team have that challenge: find, develop and maintain the blend.
  2. The Bayley Fritsch Thread

    I certainly agree with your view that the term “going to be a gun” is grossly overused - I clearly remember more than one poster (though I can’t remember who) throwing the term “gun” re the likes of Blease, Strauss, Maric, Morton, even Tynan and Taggert. Lets hold off such lauding until they actually do something eg Oliver, Viney
  3. The Jack Petruccelle Thread

    Could fit in quite well 😨
  4. A very unhelpful guide to 2018

    Certainly without so many injuries to so many key players, some of which were early in crucial games, we just have to get more wins. And IF we had a dream run injury wise as did The Toiges then who knows? Continuity helps a hell of a lot. OMG ....... and who will be the new whipping boy on these fora?
  5. Quite a few here seem to have gotten sad! Disappointed as I am that Watts never showed us his best (which is very good) consistently he seems to have been told on more than one occasion watt was required of him and he failed to deliver: therefore to have retained him would have been seen (and rightly criticized) as double standards. I wish him well. Lever is a former high pick who has delivered - the critics seem to think we should have rolled the dice in the hope that Adelaide would crumble, but had they not we would have instead of getting a proven, young, quality player have ourselves rolled the dice on a draft pick.
  6. Yeah....I am certain that the club would never have give that any thought at all 🙄
  7. Mmmmmm. Does a few good things against the Dees ..... hope he can learn the opposite 😳

    I guess one could say anything but only rarely if ever be correct !

    That is AFL all over
  10. Adelaide were, until now, my favorite interstate club and Tex my favorite non MFC leader. No longer - wasn’t Tex ranked amongst the bottom level for effectiveness in the GF. I was waiting for his leadership after half time but it never appeared. Flat track bullies?
  11. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Is Balic on our list?

    Pretty early to judge a bottom aged small forward - Jayden Hunt was also widely condemned as a "dud"for his first couple of years. Thankfully he has a year (at least) left to prove himself.

    Surely the top demand must be: The Darwin game be scheduled immediately before the bye for both teams involved (and the same for Cairns games if they still exist).
  14. Josh Schache

    Is that the same Terry Wallet who set Tigers back about 10 years with his recruiting and list management coups?
  15. Robbie Gray illness

    It is indeed, though far more progress has been made in diagnosis and treatment than in Peter Crimmins' days
