Jack Trengove signed by Port Adelaide as a Delisted Free Agent

I really hopes he makes it, but I doubt very much that he will.

Another contract, a new environment...at least when he walks away he will know that he did everything he could.

Really glad he got another chance because he's a ripping bloke but i think also a smart pick up from Port. 

Worst case scenario they get a great clubman and very strong SANFL performer creating pressure for spots, developing young players and providing leadership. and they're paying him peanuts to do it.

Gee, I hope he does make it again. Hopes with him for accepting the challenge, rather than playing "What if ??"

Long term this is Port's gain because they get a quality person.

Good Luck <JT

Him and Toumpas will add some pace to the Port Flanks.

Watts should provide the toughness at the contest.

Good luck to JT with his new club.  Port obviously think they are in the Premiership window, by recruiting all manner of discards from other clubs in exactly the same way North did a couple of years back.

Trouble for North was that it got them up and going while those older talented bodies could stay on the field ( remember their 9 wins in a row in 2016), then completely fell apart at the business end of the season.  Then all those older players became list cloggers at the same time as their original senior players retired.  Result: down the bottom of the ladder in 2017 and likely to stay there for a long, long time.

It's a calculated gamble.  If it works great, but it is all or nothing.

Great to see Port trying to win the 2018 AFL premiership by recruiting ex Melbourne players. But someone needs to tell them the the 2018 premiership will be going to the Melbourne Football Club.

GO THE DEES!

Biff I was reading your life story and noticed your fondness for Brazilians, I thought you were probably referring to a churrasco, but I thought Biff, BBQ or bare?

Yes in that you didn't place the conditional clause first. No in that every club will be fighting for and driving up the price of our discards the following year. Perhaps that's why we kept JKH, Kent and McKenna around for 2018.

We couldn't even roll 1/2 a Collingwood side in the last round, with finals on the line.

Not that. The Goodwin bit.

Expectation is up yes. There will need to be significant regression for his job to be on the line.

He has had 3 years inside the walls. 

Round 23 was not a good omen

Not from me. I am tipping a worse year than 2017 for Port.

Yep. That’s how i see it Red. 

They have recruited a bunch of flawed players, who should have been stars.

Friend of mine thinks with the addition of these discards, they are going to have one Hell of a SANFL side.

That’s handy for them. 

I know that my Port supporting mates get right behind the Magpies when the AFL side is traveling poorly.

Get real? 

We have the worst disposal in the league.

We have no forward structure.

Our greatest strength is a brigade of tough nut midfielders who can't kick.

We have never seen any evidence that our talls are able to work with each other instead of getting in each others' way.

The team still falls asleep for large portions of games. 

Realistically, I think we're a damn good chance to go backwards next year.
