  1. Farewell Jack Watts

    I liked - “Quite simply, previous regimes have been prepared to settle for less from Jack and I don’t think the Simon Goodwin cartel will. Those that observe Jack more closely and intimately than anyone else in the game are in a far better position to past judgment on whether he is part of their finals and premiership push. The fact they took pick 31 and are contributing to his wage suggests that they’re in no doubt.”

    Me too. Loves ya Jack! Dont go! Just play better...
  3. Jake Stringer

    Given McCartney coached Jake, and most likely knows the full story and potential of this deal and player, if we make a play it will be late and successful. Stringer, when on, is a mercurial match winner. A more mature, team oriented and defensive version of Jake, would add further sting to our forward half.
  4. Josh Schache

    he's surplus to our needs and his recruitment would be a slap to Wiedeman, pass for mine.
  5. Farewell Jack Watts

    The camp I'm now in is - "Jack's gonna stay! So cue music for the mother of all training montages..."

    Time for a musical interlude...

    Let’s assume Jack sees the light and decides to stay and, to paraphrase Roos, decides to be great, what does he need to do immediately to start earning back the respect and trust of the coach, FD and LG?
  9. I think that the MFC did he deal now (early) rather than stretching it out, because it has plans for the picks it gets from Adelaide. So probably need to wait and see what they now do with the picks. Also, I get the sense with the addition of Lever, the build of a team capable of attacking the top end of the ladder is almost complete.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    I think that’s exactly part of the issue with Jack. He appears to be doing as he’s been told to do, hence his surprise at his being out of favour... He’s working to rule, so to speak instead of stepping up and taking additional initiatives to become better. According to the Wookie he’s super popular with the young players, yet not in the leadership group. So is he not interested in working on his leadership skills? I guess not. There was a rumour he was working on his contested marking last year, and I remember thinking that’s the first time I’ve heard Jack’s name connected with some additional extra-curricular... now before anyone gets huffy, I’m speculating here and don’t actually know.

    True, but imagine the joy when he loses his [censored] every time Jack misses a tackle, contested mark or hardball get...
  12. Trade rumours

    Now you tell us...
  13. Farewell Jack Watts

    It’s obscene to compare Martin and Watts, they are so far apart. In 9 years when we as a club were very poor Jack finished only twice in the top ten players in the B&F, players like Dean Terlich and Matt Jones polled above him some years... But let’s compare him to Martin! Its laughable.
  14. Trade rumours

    Maybe its also a lesson for players not to drop their performance 1 year into a 3 year contract...
