  1. The Harley Balic Thread

    Agree..unless a player does very well he tends to go down in the draft pecking order (no longer an unknown) third round does it for me if we are interested. Perhaps swap our second for their third if that is allowed but he would have to be "issue free" whatever his problems were, Agree.... Kent played 20 games in 2016.... if we are to trade him it needs to be a little better than this
  2. The Soccer thread

    I'm driving down to Malacca (or Melaka as it is called here) to watch the game on 5 October. Not sure how to buy a ticket but it should not be too much of a problem ... the Syria v Uzbekistan game had 350 people. The stadium holds 40,000. Weather will be hot (around 29) and high humidity. It is the inter monsoon phase at present so a decent thunderstorm is quite on the cards. If you guys are interested I can give you a match report concentrating mainly on the colour and the food. Doubt that there will be a beer at the stadium.
  3. Trade rumours

    this is getting really silly......... On a more realistic note it is a great way of shifting the norm ... keep saying you want the moon and the stars and you will at least end up with the moon
  4. Guess the Crowd...GWS v Eagles

    Surprised that it is so high... One could be cynical and suggest that a few of those tickets are being bought for the resale market.

    what a sheltered life I have been leading.....
  7. Trade rumours

    Very much agree that he should be played in the mid field. I remember when Neeld played him in the ruck and people were amazed. Anything that gets him into the thick of the game.
  8. Trade rumours

    Interesting .... his 2017 form was not that great and one has to wonder if 2016 is his norm or an aberration. If we had a reasonable replacement I could be persuaded but as we haven't it is but a thought point.
  9. The Jake Lever Thread

    Trying to recall the last "big fish" we traded for. I suppose it was Mitch Clark. Dees don't have a good record when it comes to ending up on top in the big trades. Starting with my name sake and moving on... Peter Moore, Kelvin Templeton and the list goes on and on. Hope this deal proves me wrong ... different times... different players. Overall I prefer the slightly lower profile trades like Hibberd for a second rounder or whatever it was.
  10. The No T$ No B$ Thread

    Not sure if this made the Australian media but it certainly makes one stop and think ... what the hell was he doing: http://www.thestar.com.my/news/world/2017/09/17/german-man-penis-gets-stuck-in-gym-weight-plate-rescue-effort-takes-3-hours/ "A man in the German city of Worms had his penis stuck in the hole of a 2.5kg gym weight plate on Friday, forcing fire-fighters to use power tools to free it."

    Everyone was hoping that this would have a fairy tale ending but alas it was not to be. Good luck Jack whatever you decide to do next.
  12. Guess the Crowd...GWS v Eagles

    It also means that they will not survive without investment from the AFL. Would like to see the TV ratings for Sydney for GWS games and how the product is being received pre and post the introduction of GWS. It can only be television that justifies GWS and probably also GCS as it looks like it will never be attendance at games.
  13. The Jake Lever Thread

    ah,,, a mere detail but the point remains the same
  14. The Jake Lever Thread

    Understand but the only diff between the two is that Port can say no and insist the player honour his contract . What club would do that after the Gary Ablett fiasco
  15. The Jake Lever Thread

    While we talk Lever it is interesting to recall what Dangerfield was traded for. Considering he is the best player in recent times to be traded he is a good benchmark. "GEELONG has sealed the Patrick Dangerfield trade with Adelaide. The Cats have given up young midfielder Dean Gore as well as picks No.9 and No.28 to snare the superstar midfielder. The Cats gain Dangerfield and Adelaide's third-round draft pick, currently No.50. Gore was pick No.55 at the NAB AFL Draft but was on the verge of senior selection early in 2015 before he suffered a shoulder injury that forced him to miss seven weeks. He then returned strongly to be part of the selection mix late in the season averaging more than 20 touches a game at VFL level on at least three occasions. " http://www.afl.com.au/news/2015-10-12/young-cat-set-to-move-home-as-part-of-dangerfield-deal So for one of the best players in the league Geelong gave up pick 9 and 28 plus a VFL player. It seems to me that offering our first and second round for Lever is by comparison way overs.
