Jumper Numbers 2018

Recommended Posts

Lever No. 8 - Will locjer up next too Viney.

Balic No. 20 - Obvious choice I think.

Corey Maynard No. 9 - Corey has a tonne of characteristics you want in a player. Will play 22 games this season I think.

Joel Smith No. 27 - True backman number for the Dees. Sean Wight, Anthony Ingerson. 

No. 4 - Who knows?

Like Lever in 8.

Don't quite know why (probably because I think of 33 as more of a speedster/Wizz type number), but I'd prefer to see Maynard in 20.

Would like to see Joel Smith in 27, as I think he has a bit of Sean Wight about him, the way he plays hard and athletically at the footy and as a defender, that make it a good fit to honor that number (can't recall if Shaun and Sean ever played together).

Well according to Demon army reports, looks like I got Lever and Maynard, but Balic has 27.

With 4, 8, 9, 20, 27, 31, 33 & 41 Vacant. 

What numbers do Jake Lever & Harley Balic get?

Do any current players get an upgrade?

Jayden Hunt upgrade to 4.

Joel Smith gets 29 (that his father wore).

Weideman gets 9.

Lever gets 8 (next locker to Jack Viney).

Balic gets 20.

Is this confirmed or your wish list?

...well the last is a bit of a wish list, as I understand that Maynard has 20.

I somewhat like the thought of Smith in 29, but Hunt also has ties to 29, being some relation to Andrew Obst as I understand.

I think it's Andy Moir he's related to.  Andy wore 29.

Spargo in the No.4, then all the little kids won't have to look up to a new player in the number, they can look him straight in the eyes. ?

(Edit: And I think he'll get plenty of game time)

Why not? What is the harm or cost in changing jumper numbers?

Agree, who knows maybe James Harmes wore #4 regularly as a junior , maybe it's his lucky number , maybe he thinks he can run faster with less weight on his back

Who cares - good on him for asking and thank goodness we didn't leave it vacant in some pathetic gesture to honour the departure of someone who is no longer on our list

I for one think Harmes can be a regular member of a very competitive football team - don't remember not putting in when it was his time to go - hope he has a blinder of a season

Loving Harmes claiming the #4 the very second that other bloke was out the door.

Yep. I think if I were a player I'd want to make history in whatever number I got first up, be it 1 or 50, but if it gives another player a nice little buzz to get a number more of their choosing, I don't understand why supporters would throw dirt on it. It's a gift the club can give its player that literally doesn't cost anyone anything.

It's being pedantic, I know, and I'm probably fighting a losing battle, but I don't like the idea that moving to a lower number is in any way an "upgrade". It's just a meaningless change which serves no purpose other than to annoy those supporters who have already purchased a jumper with that player's original number.

I know that if I was rewarded with a spot on the list and given any number from 1 to 99 I'd want to keep that number for the whole of my career, however long it may last. Players should be encouraged to stick with the one number and to make their own history with it. And the idea that a lower number is somehow a more privileged asset just seems like another way to differentiate players into the "haves" and "have nots" (meaning, in this instance, having the confidence of the coaches). I would have thought that's not the best way to unify a squad.

It's a throwback to the 70s and 80s where your jumper number was indicative of your place in the world, and the senior players all had lower ones. I would have thought we would have moved past that by now too, but when was the last time you saw a player freshly drafted on the rookie list get a jumper number lower than 30? Hell, it wasn't that long ago that we had Chris Connolly putting Blease and Strauss in 46 and 47 because they had to "earn" lower ones.

It all seems silly from the outside, but once an idea becomes ingrained in culture it becomes hard to break. Just need a few confident young stars to strut in and go "jumper number 95, please" and it'll start to get some momentum. In the mean time, we can have this conversation over and over again every year on Demonland!

If we're giving Petty number 33, surely his nickname has to be LP.
