    Tom McDonald Presser (14/12)

    Agreed. Sitting there nicely in the wings as a future leader, but whilst there will be some expectation on the Weid our leadership is in the midfield. Wouldn’t be surprised if more expectation of consistency and improvement in that area will be required. ( Refer the StKilda game .That game still eats at me. Yes I realise Viney was ok in the second half)

    Track teases us a bit. Hidden in there is a game controlling monster. When isolated he is rarely beaten in contested ball. We just wait for the day he totally gets his tail up, plays for 100 mins and adds being a defensive beast forward, if that makes sense.

    Sole Captaincy?

    Joint captaincy fine if they could be relied upon to play at their best. Trouble is there is some doubt about injury or form. Should Tom Mc Donald be added to the mix?

    I think its easy to think that way and I can understand that like many, we would just like this done. However I think we would be an even bigger chance for improvement by negotiating properly ,as well as maintaining a little negotiating respect . After all we seem to have come a long way from our opening negotiating position and it shouldn't be necessary for us to totally prostitute ourselves, particularly considering how Freo have conducted themselves throughout the process.

    Have thought from day 1 that Freo are desperate to get Hogan. Smoke screens galore to drive down a proper price.

    You mean like watching a ‘circus’. Not much meat on the bone in 5 days.

    The AFL Brand taking a bit of a hit at the hand of the Dockers. Do they step in, review the guidelines or ‘advise Freo’ that it might work best for them if they get their ship together.

    Might shake a few things up. Its normally about this time that the left field trades turn over Apple carts and make politics look sensible.

    Don’t know if either of them could help kick a few goals for us.

    Anything happens to one or both Max or Preuss ( should we get him) would need to cover them and kick goals. Have to say not overly excited by the prospect.

    I don’t believe it’s ridiculous at all. You have your opinion I have mine.

    People certainly do talk rubbish. Hogan far more valuable unit than Lever.

    How does that equate to wanting the highest trade deal ever? As for 5 and a second rounder, such a result would create a clear credibility issue somewhere, particularly as we gave 2 first rounders for Lever. Mahoney would have to walk the plank on that one.

    Still think Freo are desperate for a key forward. No I think Freo are really desperate for a key forward.

    In staying he might also end up part of a premiership side and confirm it’s a very nice place to be. Mahoney stumped up two first rounders for Lever last year and has said he want the highest trade payment ever and closed his satchel. So quite a bit to occupy the minds of the Freo recruiters I imagine.
