  1. To classy for us, we will surely draft another honest inside mid. I look fwd commenting in the to why didn’t we draft Hayden young threads of the future
  2. Watched some highlights the other week, a lot of no look get it down the field 50 meter kicks, I’d like us to draft the best player who can hit a target on the lead from 30 meters with a flat punt
  3. Indeed it does, but like Luke ball he could put a price of 1 million for 1 year, and have a hand shake to play for 400 the next 2
  4. So long as he doesn’t come on big money or cost anything much in picks, don’t see why not. At minimum he ads to our depth, might even find a spot, would be an upgrade on the Wagners or Anb who are still on our list and play senior games
  5. How many players still have a question mark at 26 years of age and turn it round. I think what we saw this year is as good as it gets for him.
  6. Tigers got pick after there 2nd which is as high as you can go without been a first round comp, gws get end of 2nd round which is lowest 2nd round comp you can get. Ladder position makes them similar picks in the end but the contacts is suspect would be significantly different, I’m guessing 3 years and high 300 - low 400 for Tomlinson based on that
  7. Elliot signed a 1 year deal last year in the middle of his injury issues, he would be on a very reduced wage atm, I would be surprised if Melbourne has offered him anything exceptional it’s mainly just the security of time my guess would be something in the 400-500 range dependant on certain mile stones being reached
  8. https://www.sen.com.au/news/2019/10/02/crow-and-lion-attracting-interest-from-sydney/ Reports Lewis Taylor is on the move, hopefully the dees are making enquires as well, he would be a handy pickup especially if Elliot decides not to leave pies for dees, wouldn’t cost much either I would think.
  9. There is so much throw it on the boot and get it fwd 50 meters at under 18 level, none of it tells us who can hit someone with a bullet kick at pace in traffic, something we sorely lack, from what I’ve seen and read Kemp is the best bet but he did an acl, given no one at Melbourne expected to have a pick 3 I wouldn’t be against a gamble on him.
  10. Feels like ground hog day here replace Frosts name with Watts, Silvia, Travis Johnstone or woewodin and it’s the same discussion, other than Stef Martin and Howe I can’t think of a single player in the last 20 years I regret losing, and I don’t think we had a choice with the last 2
  11. Other than talk from the club after we drafted him, what has he ever shown at AFL level to show he is elite, he has now played near 100 games and will be 24 at the start of next season and we are still waiting for that break out game. Odds are he won’t reach the hights we were all hoping for. Brayshaw on the other hand is the bigger mystery, he was elite in the 2nd half of last year matching it with the best of them, if he can find that level again he could be talked about in the same breath as Dangerfield who isn’t a good kick either but makes the most of all his other attributes
  12. Feel like Petracca will our jack ziebell, he doesn’t have the pace or evasiveness to be a Martin, Danger, Ablett or Judd type
  13. So who do you suggest going after instead as doing nothing is going backwards, he will be a best 22 won’t cost picks and would command no more than a modest contract. If it’s a matter of him or frost I’d take him, he offers more utility round the ground and if our backline is fit frost wouldn’t be in the 22 imo as it is rare you need a permanent 3rd tall in the backline these days. A best 22 over a backup is the no brainer on that case
  14. Feels like they will use him in a similar role to Pederson who we have sorely missed since his retirement
