    Pre-Preseason 2019 Update

    Two aspects would translate directly beautifully to AFL: 1) The rule where you can deck your opponent if the footy is 1m or 80m away - nice! 2) The pantaloons, surely

    Craig Jennings seems to be highly regarded in the industry for his footy iq and his left field approach. It therefore seems fitting that the question be asked. What sport is Craig Jennings studying? Craig Jennings (Japan) Nearest the Pin Competition - Nominations open. Sumo wrestling?

    PICKS # 23 & 28

    I watched a bit of the TAC GF and, it might've been a bad day but thought Bailey Williams kicking was tres ordinaire. Other than that was great mark and had quite a good game sense. The kicking reminded me a little of our very own Sam Frost, but like I said, might've been an off day.
  4. I would be interested in Mahoney's role in the coaches box. Beyond this, his transitioning from coach to management - his reflections or thoughts on the matter. Does he still have an appetite for coaching (depending on his role in the coaches box). Does he enjoy the blend of footy and management? I believe he squeezed in an MBA in somewhere. Personally rate the guy very highly and, while I hoped he would get the CEO gig, I think he is perfectly suited to his role.

    Rivalled Col Garland for worst debut, but in shouldn't be held against him. Looks to have the goods as a KPD. Just needs time and size. I hope he earns a few more games in 2019. Personally more impressed with him than Baker, but it's early days. Played well in the VFL GF I thought.

    Farewell Dean Kent

    That's all well and good and I can see where you're coming from but if we find ourselves caught short with the departures of both Kent and VDB (and possibly others), then we may rely more heavily on the trade (pick) to facilitate other player movements. Alternatively, we may be forced to use the pick in the draft given the higher number of departures. Pick 75 is not very helpful for either scenario. I hope it's just posturing by St Kilda or more likely, utter tripe peddled by the Hun.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

    His manager was on Lame Radio today indicating he was up for the challenge, keen to stay and fight for his place in the senior side. Clearly talking him up, but it looks like he's not wanting out or to get back to WA, or there are no takers. I hope he can because when Jeff's on fire he does a lot of damage. When he's not it's just pathetic.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Clearly Hoges is meeting club (singular) - the one he wants to play for!

    I don't think he particularly entertained leaving GWS but is one of many players being shopped for somewhat urgent cap relief, with him now being the most likely to fall first. I expect Hawthorn was his first (only) choice but the Saints are doing a Gaff/North number which could be irresistible. Alternatively, I'm completely wrong and and he wants to come home because he can get paid a fortune and might be over living in shitsville.

    I would agree with that, but the Saints offer is insane and might be to good to refuse.

    The three remaining clubs in the race are $t Kilda, Hawks and lol Carlton. Bummers obviously didn't cough up enough cash.
