  1. Let me be clear here. I would prefer to keep Watts too. From what we are hearing so far in the draft we have: - watts given away for a second round pick. - Lever being paid more than Max, Viney, or Jones, plus our first two picks in the draft - Hogan going home to Fremantle for not very much. - Trengove, Kennedy and Spencer being given away for nothing when each has potential currency. Doesnt look too too good to me. I am prepared to call it now that to me the Lever trade will have the destabilising effect on our young list which will see much of our brilliant midfield and the best big man in the league walk out when their contracts are up. I think it is that serious. This Post was supposed to bring that to a head, not as a serious suggestion re Jack Watts, but under these circumstances Tippett might have some value and won’t destroy our young list at the same time. At least he has played some good football in the past, and we could get him for very little. This trade period for me is looking like we are going back into the pack as a perennial mid lister. It is not looking good!!!
  2. watts IS going - it is simply what we can get for him (listen to Trade Radio if you don’t believe me). They report the MFC have indicated they will accept a second round choice - I think remarkably, but we are where we are. I find it remarkable that we say what we will accept before they explore options. At the moment there are at least three clubs looking at Watts (including the Swans - hence the suggestion), yet we say second round is ok.. In my my business career we have always practised you play one off against the other, to maximise the outcome. We are giving everything away... Another example is delisting Spencer, and we now know a couple of clubs are after him. We need to monetarise these opportunities!
  3. Could make sense, if Tippett passes the fitness test!

    Suggest either ANB or Hannan, but probably depend on how they and the team perform on Saturday. There is no doubt that team is strengthened by Viney who makes Max twice as good. If you had to rank the team above, I would certainly put ANB and Hannan 21 & 22, but we are getting to the stage where we have an embarrassment of riches which is obviously where we need to be...
  5. Josh Kelly

    Partially agree. The rumour I like is the one that says Kelly stays at GWS on a two year contract, wins a flag, then comes to the Dees on a five year deal (after we beat GWS for the 2019 Flag)! Oh happy days!
  6. Changes versus Collingwood

    In: Watts. Salem (Assuming Viney unfit) if fit: Viney Out: Stretch Wagner (If Viney fit: Hannan) TEAM B: Jetta - T Mac - HibberdHB: Hunt - O Mac - LewisC: Tyson - Jones - VinceHF: Watts - Pedersen - MelkshamF: Petracca - Hogan - GarlettFoll: Gawn - Oliver - VineyI/C: Salem - Brayshaw - ANB - Harmes. Substantially better side side than last week IMHO
  7. The principle is the same whether in finals or home and away!
  8. Although a hard fought win on Sunday, we seem to give away far too many unnecessary 50m penalties. I counted five 50 meter penalties against us on Sunday (Tyson (2), Hannan, Hogan, Wagner) and none to the Lions. That is a hell of an advantage to give away. I know we have to play the game hard, but there was nothing hard about these penalties, simply sloppy and undisciplined. It is hard enough to win games at the best of times, without deliberately handicapping ourselves. We simply can't afford this in finals.
  9. It would be interesting to know. somehow they may have more relevance. I suspect a few, but let's see.....It would give a lot more relevance to their understanding of the game. clearly there are doctors and lawyers who post and they often reveal themselves, why not AFL experts?
  10. Changes v Brisbane

    I thought it was a bit more than soreness. At some stages yesterday he look absolutely spent. I think a rest is a good idea, even if it is only a rest from heavy training. The week off will help him enormously...

    I agree. Just finished watching the replay again. We lookED really spent in the last half. Reminds me of the last few games of last year. I know this is a symptom of young sides but we won't give a peeps in the finals if we can't get our mid season spark back. Hopefully we will make the finals. The bye before it will do us a huge amount of good IMHO.
  12. Who do we think will be the most likely winner of the Brownlow from our current list. I'll start the ball rolling: 3. Oliver 2. Petracca 1. Viney honourable mentions Gawn - (I know unusual for a ruckman to win recently, but there was Stynes, Moore, Dempsey). Tyson (if he improves his kicking) Hibberd TMac (left field choice) Brayshaw - yes he is that good folks when he is fit
  13. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    I have them not making it.....their form is dreadful, and have some challenging games ahead. I agree it will be a big fall. I also think they are in termoil over several of their so called stars wanting to leave at year's end.
  14. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    Agree sorry. It was bulldogs, swans
  15. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    Just did a ladder predictor, with us winning four of our last five games and finishing 3rd. The eight is Adelaide Geelong MFC Richmond Swans Bulldogs Power Hawthorn We beat Geelong at the MCG, then Hawthorn in the Prelim, and play the Swans in the granny which we win by 40 points. Perfect!
