  1. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    As inane as it was, Ox and Allen seemed to fit the demographic - if the majority of callers are anything to go by. I enjoyed some of Ox's footy insight. Very ordinary effort by SEN.
  2. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    I think the issue with Balic is that his fitness base was (and was expected to be) way behind the others having not played for so long. I cant remember when his last game was before being granted the last leave from Freo. As long as there is gradual improvement - anyone?

    Thanks as usual DS. A question - there was mention of Frost playing a bit up the ground next year, not necesasrily as a forward. In 666s pics, there are a few of Frost with Hogan against Hunt and Vince. Can you tell if he's training exclusively with the backs, elsewhere or are they mixing it up a bit? Cheers

    Thank you, thank you 666
  5. Jack Viney will Return to the Track in January.

    Training the weights room down?

    Or he'd be a cult leader

    Love the 'All hail Nibbler' pic

    Or accused of splitting red hairs

    I think Ginger Rogers (aka Tina Louise) with that mop:
  10. NAB Draft - Closest the Pin

    I thought we might look at him as a slider until I read a comparison with Watts, in the 'lack of appetite for the contest' sense. Just a recollection of a random comment, not gospel.
  11. NAB Draft - Closest the Pin

    Complete stab in the dark. Expect about 0 out of 4. 29 - Joel Garner (others Baker, Spargo, Hayes) 31 - Spargo (others Baker, MacPherson, Stoddart) 36 - Krueger (as a Cripps type mid) (others Baker, Petrucelle, someone no one's ever heard of) 47 - Baker (others Fritsch, Answerth, someone no one's ever heard of)
  12. Just butting in here - I would, but only because of the forward option. If he was a pure ruck, I'd pass (also on Coleman-Jones). I could see us taking a Ballard or Brander if either happened to slide (unlikely) but no other KPPs. The rest will be players who are either mids or capable of running through the middle. If they don't love a contest, they wont get picked, no matter how much run they might provide. I think they'll look for a small forward (which i include in the capable of running through the middle brigade). I doubt we'd pick up more than one player under 180cms. I could see us getting Spargo if medically cleared and I'm definitely expecting at least one from the clouds. Some of the players predicted to go in the 30's around our picks I don't think we'd take - eg Houlahan. Also wanting to put it on record how wrong I expect to be, as Taylor has so far surprised with each draft and isn't afraid of high risk, high reward picks. I'll take a stab at the four picks shortly just to prove it.
  13. Wasn't sure where to put this, but here's Brett Anderson's SEN Mock Draft: https://www.sen.com.au/news/2017/11/20/brett-andersons-2017-afl-mock-draft/ Interesting he has us taking Oscar Baker. I'm expecting some left field picks from Taylor as has been the case in the past.

    It certainly wont hurt him to ramp up his running if he's in the rehab group for a while. Needs to take it up a few levels to start running both ways.
