  1. Farewell Jack Watts

    Well Jack has another 5 or 6 or so years of senior footy. And will play us perhaps 10 times. His great games will be highlighted and his poor ones not so evident but reflected on nonetheless. They are likely to make finals and a re a good chance to finish top four so we will see a lot of Jack at the pointy end. Imagine if they win a flag with Jack. Good lord! So i think there is little chance this thread will die. Perhaps it should be renamed again though. Farewell Jack Watts won't cut it next year (and to be honest is not really cutting it now). I hope though that whatever happens to the thread we keep away from character assassination of jack, goody and mahoney. And for that matter i hope we don't see any more scurrilous rumor and innuendo about Jack's extra curricular activity. Totally uncalled for and Jack deserves much, much better from demon's fans. To be clear PD i'm not suggesting you have engaged in such behavior, quite the contrary you have been very respectful, focused on Jack as footballer not a person and showed admirable constraint in not posting some gif of someone jumping up and down saying I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!

    I was wrong about the club trading Jack. I was, however, right about there being no chance if he left it would be for a cellar dweller and in all likelihood he would go to a top 4 club. Port is a much better option for Jack than Geelong i think. Not least because i they are in a much better position, in my humble, to win a flag in the next 5 years than the Cats. For the Cats its next year or never.

    This sort of stuff is rubbish. Fanboys - sheesh
  4. Farewell Jack Watts

    To be honest the thread should have been closed when renamed Farewell Jack Watts. Or a new thread started for people to thank jack for his service to the club and not use it to have more shots at him or the club for how they have handled the whole thing. Jack showed his class with his farewell comments. its not too much to ask i reckon for passionate dees fans such as us to show a bit as well. Good luck Jack. I hope things work out well for you. Thank you for your service to the club i love and for many fantastic memories - non grander than this years QB game (PS thanks for performing well in 2016. I enjoyed seeing PD using your avatar for 6 months).
  5. Where is the der fred button when you need it?
  6. Farewell Jack Watts

    No, i don't think it has.
  7. Trade rumours

    If true it suggests that perhaps this draft isn't as weak as many have predicted.
  8. Trade rumours

    5 trades so far! If the rumors of North Korea using trade radio as a tool of torture are true let hope that for the sake of all things sacred they don't use a recording of this years'edition!
  9. Trade rumours

    I do.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    Agree. I have had no interest in this thread other than scanning for updates. To be honest i have been hoping that there will be an update saying something has drastically changed and he is going to say. That's because i'm a huge Jack 'fanboy'. As i have said before he is in my top 10 favourite Melbourne players - and i have seen a lot of players in the more than 40 years i have passionately followed the club. But the key word is fan. i'm not a coach or member of the FD. Obviously. No really i'm not. I'm allowed to be emotionally invested and think through that lens. The coach and the FD not so much (though as Roos said in that great interview on Deetales footy is an emotional game, much more so that business, and that is why some strange decisions are sometimes made) To be honest i think it is pretty simple. Goody wants 22 warriors. And Jack isn't - and never will be - the warrior type. Now i might disagree with that be he is the coach and it is his call. Goody has made the call. And i very much doubt he has done so lightly. I support and respect his right to make that call. That said it is a big call and quite rightly he will be judged on it - and goody would expect nothing less. And i like the fact the club has allowed him to make that call. Many is a time that a head coach would have been over ruled at the demons - which is just one of the reason we have been so unsuccessful for so, so many years. this why PJ is quiet. He ha invested in the FD and like all good managers know you have to trust your key appointments. Micro management is an anathema to success. I will be totally gutted to see jack play at another club. The last time i felt this way was when Greg Wells left when i was about 11 years old. But like then i hope Wattsy gets all the success in the world. And as harsh as it sounds if we get the success we all crave the fanboys and haters will have consigned all of this palaver to the memory vault.
  11. Farewell Jack Watts

    JACK Watts wants to play for Port Adelaide. The Herald Sun has been told Watts on Friday settled on playing for the Power, which has this week announced itself as the AFL’s newest destination club. Steven Motlop followed Tom Rockliff to Port, with the restricted free agent pair choosing the Power over Adelaide and Gold Coast, and Carlton respectively. The Watts camp is unlikely to declare his chosen destination given the Jake Stringer-Essendon impasse, but sources close to the forward are adamant he has decided on a fresh start in South Australia........ It is understood the Demons might have to tip in some of Watts’ annual salary of around $500,000 to get a deal for Watts done and gain more traction in next month’s draft.
