    Great comment. Need that sarcasm button.
  2. Anyone else feeling sick in the guts

    I reckon the Boot camp might have a lot of new players!
  3. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    This is the exact response Goodie should be making. And challenge the players who didn't want to develop the attributes the camp would have concentrated on to surpass them through effort
  4. 2018's 'breakout' player

    If he is it's a definite "breakout"
  5. 2018's 'breakout' player

    Wondered how long it would take? Sylvia????
  6. 2017 Player Reviews: # 32 Tomas Bugg

    And yet on punch makes a thug???
  7. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Whately will be missed by listeners on the ABC. But they are unlikely to change with him. Both are not used to private section endorsement interruptions and it will be interesting how this works. i feel that we will see Gerard sink to mediocracy while some previously unknown will seamlessly replace him on ABC.
  8. It ain't just draft choices. it ain't just luck it ain't just development but who gives a duck. WEneed players to be smarter, WE need players to care WE need playersnot to think that it all relays on luck. if they could only understand the passion of the demonland team And if they could only match our dedication we would have a winning team.
  9. 2 ideas to make the club money

    Loss borne by the AFL. Returns to the club go beyond the direct cash . Investment in a new market at no cost. Maybe Port are more advanced than we understand!
  10. 2 ideas to make the club money

    Like the demon dinners. We have an edge with knowledge of members location , plus could target student market esp international. Just saw article on ABC re the Shanghai game. Port made 4mill from that??? With our China Eastern connection we should be all over that event.
  11. Sponsorship Problem?

    Would like to see a brand that provides some metaphor to performance. Caterpillar provides more grunt than any suburban vehicle and could get improved exposure in NT.
  12. Sponsorship Problem?

    Have been saying this for years. Too obvious for some perhaps?
  13. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    We need to provide the players with a response. While you were at boot camp I was concentrating on beating you. Look at the scoreboard.Of course only relevant if winning.. That's the real Challenge.
  14. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Thanks Dkn Both sides (players and coaches) understandable. i hope the major point made and left was that the point of the exercise is to win the flag, therefore the final result agreed by players and coaches will av chieve that. i expect the players to now commit to that by showing endeavour and resilience in every game . would be good to see the actual outcomes achieved by boot camps and how those outcomes will be met without it. Agree that concentration on footballing skills is needed.
  15. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    Thanks for the report. Is the sort of article publicity depts prepare and could be almost any player and any team. JW is obvious for Port as a proven publicity performer who did inspire personal supporter attraction. As has been pointed out Ports recent record is better than Dees. While their record against top sides I hardly think a last kick when in extra time is falling out of finals in a pejorative sense. The interest of the season is if Hinkley can get the improvement needed by getting his disparate group of recruits to perform at their best when needed, and how he uses JW. Will watch with interest and happy to get any other obscure reports detailed here for interest only. Will continue scouring Dland for detail of our actions that lead to our improvement. Hope we finish above Port (irrespective of how JW plays ) and all other sides. GO DEES
  16. Preseason Training - Week commencing 11/12/17

    Great pics. Thanks all. good to see the muscle development on the longer term players.
  17. Sponsorship Problem?

    I did suggest last year that we approach the Aust meat industry. plenty of opportunities for campaigns based on red and blue meat intake. Elite athlete diets, recipes etc. = potential visibility
  18. The Scrapping of the Bounce is Imminent

    Does that Shiraz have a cork requiring a corkscrew procedure or is it a Spalvins cap pandering to soft corkers?
  19. Having been a lifetime supporter I am used to disappointment, so I will again watch with great interest. This is a time when Hinckley will be exposed for his abilities in getting maximum performance from his players. If he does it Port may be the surprise packet. Watts performance will also expose Goody to an additional query over his judgement. Melbourne has momentum and despite the last two games failure was certainly on the improve. The list movements must continue the improvement or he will be seen as a fail. I support MFC and hope he doesn't. I want to support a successful team
  20. Seb Williams

    I do like the muscle structure that seems more advanced than his age and experience would indicate
  21. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    I won't ask in 3years I will ask at the end of next season! I will match Port Adelaide and dDemons which the Watts trade has made compulsory. if Hinkley gets an increased output from Watts Motlop and Dixon to add to his team which was so narrowly defeated in the finals nd gets an improvement which our side which could not beat North nd Collingwood to play in those same final does not achieve I will be again disappointed, a condition which I have become inured to. I thought that we were entering a period that would finally benefit from utilising the skills of Watts in a team of increasingly improving diverse features, with a united and overpowering desire to win a premiership. They can do it without Watts so now need to show that. If Port deny us I will be beyond furious and demand a more comprehensive explanation from Goodwin and fellow coaches than We have received so far. Inteesting season
  22. Farewell Jack Watts

    Well what a fantastic result. Something for everyone for so many different reasons. Goodwin V Hinckley now looms as an added aside to the actual game.
  23. Farewell Jack Watts

    So Jack goes to Collingwood and is told Yeh we always thought you were soft. That's why we targeted you so remorselely on your debut. You are really going to have to us up with our own fans spitting on you if you don't win every game they are more feral The the Melb softxxxk supporters So off to Adelaide Yeah we would really welcome you into the club partivularly because your from Victoria. Ask Jake how we treat would treat you. Geelong where Danger says love your skills but we're looking to buy a few others and Melb have really talked you down so we'll take you cheap and you'll be treated the same way here. Back to Melb Jack says ok coach I'm ok to go, ok boys we all want the success of a flag, let's ignore the Neeld years, the rebuild, and last years failure, this is the beginning , let's all work our butts off every match all season. Jack appointed to leadership team and teammates work towards achieving his numbers while he works towards establishing some new ones. They all push each other to join ogether to use the skills of individuals to achieve joint success. Oh just woke up
  24. Farewell Jack Watts

    Training and preparation should not be a cookie cutter prescription so this argument is flawed. Every player would have a different program for totally different reasons. Coaches should be communicating this and ensure that performance is elite. Its not all Jacks fault all the time. Seems Goodies given up that's his call. Hope this is not a Neeld moment. He can use it to get better results and that will be the measure Other clubs seem to think they can get better performance. Ladder results will tell.
  25. Farewell Jack Watts

    Yeah well it's the right message to expect higher standards but why deliver it through one of players who can perform while leaving many others who are just as inconsistent. Watts does not lose every match on his own in fact he has often performed when others havent
