Could do a lot worse, but where would he play? With Tmac going forward, whose spot does he take?

As long as we could get him on a dirt cheap contract, I'd have him as depth who can come in when we have injuries or poor form.

I wonder if we've had a chat with him or if he's just marketing himself?

Funnily enough I'd back Crameri to kick more goals in a season than Watts, if both had full seasons.

My first question is how old is he ? He can play but I would be using our draft picks on youngsters with a bit of speed.

I remember he kicked 6 goals on chip Frawley back in 2013..

I'd take him purely as a depth option. Definitely not the worst idea going around..

Lets get the Richmond doctor to take a look at him.
If he gives us the nod then it's a Yes from me.

Geezus, never seen so many 'Landers agreeing with each other.....

Short contract on not many bucks... not a lot to lose.

I will add my "why not" to the list.

I think we’d all like to see Tim Smith play some games next year but on face value, Crameri would be a clear upgrade.

Relationship with Goody and Macartney already so lower order draft pick? 99 Games and 166 goals - 1.8 game average. Would've been a bit more if he hadn't missed 2016 cause of the doping ban, and most of this season cause of hip surgery. Good choice for depth if he's fit and if Weideman doesn't perform this year or there's injuries.

Is he better than pick 47?

If not, I'd still rookie him. If he's does well next year could give him one more year.

How many rookie spots do we have?

Handy rookie / depth player.   5 years in a row kicking 30 plus goals -  knows where they are.  If hip is right could be a very handy addition should we have a few injuries next year.   However, in this era of Bulldogs/Tigers small fwd pressure maybe he's going to be unlucky....

I have complete faith in the FD, but if this happened I would begin to waver

His last 2 years either side of the ban, have been abysmal, the game has gone past him, he wouldn't know forward pressure if it came and bit him on the arse

LOL.

Did your homework as usual.

One year off with a ban and the other with a bad hip injury.

Read the article.

I edited my post as originally had one year then 2 forgot to put either side of the ban,  his year before the ban was ordinary,  and at his age a hip injury is a danger, my opinion still stands, you can disagree,.

Don't need to read the article, if FD go with him, will be disappointed

Of course I edited my post 2 minutes before you posted but you were too busy readying a personal attack to notice, great input into the topic

His best was pretty handy but I'm not sold on his usefulness to us.

I'm very keen to see how Hannan in particular develops. Bobbed in and out of it this year, with some pretty flat periods and even a few stinkers, but if a bit more experience and confidence sees him staying involved more throughout games then I think he could be a real highlight. Just the extra 10% game time will make a difference.

Overall, our like the way our forward line is coming together. A couple of marking talls that have to be taken seriously, a bit of variety and unpredictability with Garlett and Hannan, and then a really good collection of midfielders who can play well up forward, obviously led by Petracca and now even has Balic added to the possibilities.

On a very low dollar contract and on the understanding that he may well play most of his time at Casey, I'd join the 'why not' line for Crameri, but I've got no real motivation for us to get him.

And this would be the sealer for me.

We unfortunately have a forward line chock-a-block with players who apply bugger all defensive pressure, with Hogan being a major offender. No point bringing in a bloke who will add nothing to fix that problem.

I really don't know why I'm bothering as you've already admitted you don't care to read and learn prior to posting.

Crameri's 2015 was pretty consistent with his previous years.
