  1. Hi DV, I'm keen to have another crack. Thanks! Team: Ruffnuts
  2. Thanks for pulling it all together again DV, great effort and good fun! Very much appreciated mate.
  3. I don’t see what the big deal is... dees weren’t playing and clearly he’ll still have good mates at the tigers. It wouldn’t impact his day job when he’s ‘clocked on’. Seems like a real nothing thing to care about. I’m professional at work but don’t spruik my workplace 24/7.
  4. I think it's important to remember how young Lever is. He spent his first few years in the AFL learning and developing in the 3rd tall / intercept defender role. We know how well he developed in this role. Since joining Melbourne he's spent more time in a one on one / key defensive role, though we're only 3 rounds in. It takes time to learn and develop in new roles, not to mention adjust to new team mates and game plans. I know in a few years time I'd like a defender to be capable in a number of roles and maybe this is what Goodwin is doing. Lever is an intelligent, talented player and future leader type and I'm stoked that he's now ours. Remember Rance's first 4 - 6 years at Richmond? He was pretty much their #1 whipping boy. He has now developed into one of the top defenders in the AFL but this did not happen overnight. From memory it wasn't until he was around 24 that he really began hitting his straps. I'm not suggesting Lever will be Rance, just pointing out that it can take time for players to mature and develop. We have a quality player here and when we look back in 10 years time we'll be glad we managed to trade him in.
  5. ^this I reckon they look sweet! Just couldn’t pick the far left.
  6. I reckon the ladder will look like: GWS Sydney Adelaide Port Adelaide Richmond Melbourne Geelong Essendon Fremantle St Kilda Western Bulldogs Collingwood Carlton Brisbane Hawthorn West Coast North Melbourne Gold Coast
  7. I'm guessing that's either ANB or Robbo...?
  8. You're a bloody legend DV! My team, the Ruffnuts, will take the field again. Hopefully I can pull off a Richmond after a decline down the ladder the last couple of seasons... Thanks mate.
  9. According to MFC twitter Tom Bugg just won the 2km time trial, followed by Tmac then ANB.
  10. Nope, our list is now finalised. With Maynard elevated our 3 other rookies are Filipovic, Keilty and T Smith.
  11. I drove along Swan street and saw Weideman walking with Vanders and Viney near AAMI park and I also thought he looked bigger and stronger. Might not be his year in 2018 yet but reckon he's tracking along nicely.
  12. I agree with the angst about the potential for players to get injured, but why all the hate for the game? The international rules series is based on Gaelic football, but with slightly modified rules, which is bloody good game. I'm not Irish but was fortunate to see my first gaelic football match at Croke Park in Dublin earlier this year and it's definitely one of my most memorable sporting experiences. It's not quite as nuts as hurling but I reckon it's a great game and will definitely try and watch it!
