  1. Who is going onto the Banner?

    It would have to be all the elite trainers wouldn't it.....
  2. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    Where were all these standards and elite trainers at the club when we lost Freo, Hawthorn, North and Collingwood? These games weren't lost because of our bad run of injuries mid year. What do any of us really know about Rockliff's behaviour off the field this year or any other. We hear interviews or read articles and just like stats we chose the ones that suit our narrative. Rockliff has 2-3 years of good football left and his best is better than Vince's, compare their output this year Ive always said Port was the wrong choice for Watts but it was probably his only one.
  3. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    I read yesterday that Port traded Lobbe to Carlton for pick 95 in a bid to free up some salary cap space. If that's the case why are we paying any part of Watts salary. If he was on 500k as some suggest it looks as though Port played us nicely. Still think we should of chased Rockliff and if we landed him we could of retired Vince. And can I now assume that no player has any excuses going into next season. People constantly brought up Watts incomplete game, well he wasn't alone.
  4. Farewell Jack Watts

    Gray, Boak, Dixon, Hartlett, Wines, Wingard and Ryder all stars? 7 stars yet we smashed them late in the season, they struggled to beat a top 8 team all year and the majority of those names went missing week 1 of the finals when the game was in OT and the heat was on. I personally think Port was the wrong choice for Watts but it may of been his only one.
  5. Trade rumours

    3 would make him 30 then we could have reassessed. Regardless we should have went after him, costing only salary cap.

    Is Frost in it? And your thoughts on not going after Rockliff. cheers
  7. Trade rumours

    FB said Poppy was on the market.
  8. Trade rumours

    I would of taken Rockliff over Vince but not for 4 years at 650k a year.
  9. Farewell Jack Watts

    I think most of us are aware of Watts attitude with regards to training, no doubt he could apply himself better, but there are still numerous situations during a game when I'd rather the ball be in his hands than that of his teammates.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    I'm in the Watts to stay camp. Having said that I think Port is a poor choice, I would of thought Sydney or Geelong would of suited him better and would increase his chance of success.
  11. Trade rumours

    What are Hogans strengths and weaknesses than compare them to Hawkins and Cloke.
  12. Trade rumours

    Charlie Cameron requests trade to Lions and we're away again....

    Agree about Vince, I would of rather we went for Rockcliff over Vince and I think we could of got him.
  14. Farewell Jack Watts

    I agree, I think the only two players that are A grade on our list are Gawn and Oliver, others like Petracca have potential but aren't there yet.
  15. Farewell Jack Watts

    Not sure how you have come to the conclusion that Watts kicking is overrated. Not only is our best user of the football by foot he'd be one of the best in the league. Not many players can slot goals from the pockets like he does. The problem in his early years was that Watts would kick the ball to space where his teammate should be but we had players who didn't know where to run. Watts has faults in his game but kicking isn't one of them.
