  1. First post in a while. I'll be honest and say, I was never into Jackson at 3, in fact I was hoping all the way up until tonight that we wouldn't call his name. A WA ruckman at 3? Surely not! But alas it was, and now is time to take the glass half full approach. The updated highlights video was extremely well timed. He ain't no dinosaur ruckman. The guy looks like an incredible prospect really, a modern-day prototype. 200cm tall and incredibly nimble. Can mark overhead and he doesn't look like a complete unco when he kicks. How many rucks can kick off their left peg? I can't recall any. I'm confident that Jackson can be a very good AFL player, just hope he can hang around in Victoria longer than Hogan and the Wiz did.
  2. Wait a minute, Max Gawn saying May is... 1. On the long term injury list 2. 6-7 weeks away from returning 3. Not even running yet Either Gawn is telling porkies or Misson is. Which is it?
  3. If May escapes suspension then it's pretty much a dream prognosis for the walking wounded. JKH looked liked an ACL or broken tibia live - just bone bruising. Harmes has gone from 6+ weeks out (Demonland prognosis at the time) to a certain starter for Round 1. I'd happily trade a 7 point loss for the form Joel Smith showed today but the ease in which Brisbane moved the ball worried me a fair bit.
  4. I know he's a big talent but I feel like Carlton are pinning all their hopes on Sam Walsh. Reminds me of when Scully and Trengove started out. Let him be!
  5. [censored] me some people will be able to complain about anything the club does. It probably took some time for the scans to confirm it to be an ACL. Just like Jake Lever, whose prognosis was in limbo for a good day or two after he did his. Yes, Jake Lever, one of our highest paid players who did it in A REAL GAME. Let's be honest if they'd confirmed the news yesterday you'd be whinging about the club detracting attention away from the AFLW game. Had they done it straight away on Friday and it proved not to be an ACL then you'd be criticizing them for jumping the gun! As for the young fella, shocking luck! But he'll be like a new recruit in 2020. Best wishes to him!
  6. I remember when the original 4 year contract was considered excessive.
  7. I'm based in Shanghai at the moment. I think it's better than living in Melbourne sometimes for two reasons. 1. The games start two hours earlier than Melbourne time. Not as much time waiting around nervous. 2. You can get as immersed or as a distanced as you want during the season. Can always go to the Sports Bar and have drunken yarns to other diehards if you want a good atmosphere, but after a loss, it's easy to move on, because nobody outside of the small expat bubble GAF about footy. The 24/7 AFL media in Melbourne is good to avoid after a loss! Having said that, nothing beats going to a game live at the G.
  8. WOW! Weeds is a big boy now. He's not a fast guy or a manic endurance athlete so he needs to rely on his excellent pack marking and strength in 1-on-1 contests. We saw a glimpse of that in September, with an extra few KGs and newfound confidence, and no Hogan, look out! Makes a mockery of those who wrote him off early. ME INCLUDED!
  9. Dangerfield comparison is pie in the sky stuff, personally I'd be happy if he replaces vandenBerg down the track. Vanders is a pretty dodgy kick too but worth his weight in gold.
  10. The Age running with the precise details of the deal. In: May, 23, KK and 4th round upgrade Out Hogan
  11. It's happening. Brace yourself folks. Will the servers survive if we get reamed?
  12. May, KK and pick 23 would be an OK result IMO. Only because Jesse doesn't want to be there. I'd expect May to push for AA and play 100 games, KK could be a bargain and pick 23 is a good hand for JT to play with. I wouldn't willingly trade Jesse for that price though.
  13. Herald Sun saying our stance re. Two first round picks has softened. Noooooooo
  14. I disagree. Jesse never requested a trade which fits in with Melbourne's narrative. And he's too good a player to move on for the sake of it. Expect another Bryce Gibbs 2017 situation where Jesse stays, has a good year, then moves to Perth in 12 months time.
