Freo poised to pinch 2

This might annoyed a few, but as long as we keep Track and Oliver I think we will be ok.

Hogan is a gun, but if he leaves we will get a good return for him. 

I love Gus, and would be sad to see him go but I don't hold him in the same regard as Trac and Oliver.

Not sure where this scenario came from... if the Pies are in the market for another big forward (obviously they are) why would they trade off Moore for Weideman, who is totally unproven? And why does Hunt come into this? Strange.

To be honest. It just popped into my head one day. I must have been day dreaming! Lol

Maybe a bit of romance between the Pies and Dees.

Peter Moore headed to Melbourne after a stint at the Pies. Darcy could follow. He cannot get any consistency in his game with his continuing hammy troubles.

Weideman obviously has links with the Pies and so does Hunt with previous generations playing there. Weideman might want out if he doesn’t play senior footy this year and the Pies would welcome him. Eddie has salvaged about the Weid before. Same with Hunt if he isn’t playing consistent senior football.

It’s just a thought!

Editorial meeting: 'This Hogan story's getting a bit stale. Throw in a Brayshaw brothers angle to liven it up again!'

Part of my psyche says almost repeatedly that Collingwood and Weideman are a good mix - not just because of the family and club histories - and this represents a good opportunity for us to secure a tough, experienced (somewhat, but youngish) forward/s with the skills that we need now, and into the future. He is out there...

Another key player/s, by any standards of observation, would be a terrific boost to our side but it must be prepared and prevaricated; this 'pre-readiness' by the MFC can really only occur if Goodwin gets the game plan fixed, gets the players attuned to complete acceptance of the intent of the coaching body at the Club, and immediately establishes the rising self-confidence and worthiness of every player wearing the Red & Blue. This is not about glamour, this is about core footballing interests.

(We all know just what Roos would be doing with the players if he were the coach, now:

  • focusing in on defence mastery,
  • generating a game plan or three that created known pathway variations for forwards and midfielders,
  • establishing a return to essential yet continuous footballing skills and creativity,
  • improving player morale and values, and
  • steering the Club towards a stronger culture of success on merit. )

At present:

Defence mastery - in chaos

Game plan - confusingly unworkable and unsuccessful

Skills and creativity - mediocre and expectant that a mere handful will cover the gaps, and weaknesses

moral and values - shot and diminishing

Culture of success - flaccid and well overdue

Impossible?

Journos gonna journo. 

There's a snippet in the Fairfax press today (two different stories in The Age and Financial Review) which both make the point that Rupert Murdoch's father tried to prevent Sir John Monash from leading the Australian troops in WW1. Why? Because Murdoch Sr couldn't control him. Apples. Tree.

One of the great strengths of social media platforms, such as Demonland, is that we no longer have to rely solely on what the traditional media chooses to tell us. One of its weaknesses, though, is that people are not sufficiently rigorous in the assessment of what they are reading and too many people still choose to believe what they want to believe.
