  1. I haven’t spotted May back early which is a real disappointment after his pathetic 2019 performance of turning up fat and then consequently breaking down all year. I thought he owed the Club so much that he’d be first back.
  2. And you can believe that AFL players care little about where they fit in on their Club’s pay scale if you choose, however, that would totally defy one of humans greatest emotions (envy) but maybe your limited experience with AFL players proves otherwise.
  3. It probably only indicates that Canplay led the witness/senior player with his line of questioning, however, nobody could possibly be the slightest bit surprised that the majority of Dees players would be shaking their heads at Tomlinson getting a long term, lucrative contract.
  4. If you hadn’t worked it out already, the only reason why he would talk about Young is that he knows 100% that Young won’t be there for their first Pick.
  5. You are so overthinking this mate. This is from a mate of 40 years who we each served as each other’s Best Man at our respective weddings 30 years ago. There is no bs with this info. For the last 10 years I get emailed his Club’s full Draft report about 5 minutes before the Draft and I have never let him down by abusing the trust.
  6. I perfectly understand that strategy and agree with it, however, you miss the point of my post which was all about the detail of a mock draft from an actual ELITE AFL club and who they had at 3.
  7. Ok, but what’s the point in nominating a Player that is 100% going to be recruited by GWS to whom he is “allocated”. Besides which he’s another inside mid. Puzzling post!
  8. Yesterday I had breakfast with a mate that has been part of an AFL club’s recruitment team for 10 years and due to him passing me info prior to the actual Draft, I would rather keep the Club confidential, however, let me assure you that this is one hell of a successful club. My mate’s role is purely Victorian based and focuses totally on the TAC, no other league. The bottom line is that he told me this Club had a major meeting last Saturday whereby all the TAC watchers met for a full day and compiled a mock Draft of Victorian TAC players. Whilst having to be a little guarded at this time of year, my mate told me that at Saturday’s meeting, Hayden Young was the almost totally unanimous choice as number 3 from the TAC. In fact, my mate scoffed at the thought of overlooking Young at 3 even after the interstate kids were factored in He was very strong in his praise of Kemp but didn’t want to elaborate too much about other players in the 5 to 10 range as this is where his Club would be selecting. He did however say that neither he or any of his other TAC watchers had Weightman in the first 12 and said he’d be highly surprised if any Club took him in the Top 10 after the interstaters were added in. Thought you might be interested.
  9. Doesn’t have a great relationship with Richo which wouldn’t help us.
  10. Very safe kick after taking an eternity to sum up his safest short option. Provides absolutely no run, much less burst out of defence. If we’re playing Oscar as a second KPD, we’re in trouble.
  11. Shows you how bad we were when Jayden Hunt finishes top 10 with that rubbish he served up.
  12. Herald Sun has written as part of his performance rating that MFC should reconsider their long term, big money offer.
  13. If you reckon he went missing today, you should have seen his last two games. He was outstanding today compared to the last two games in which his team happened to play very well. He is just a low possession, role player that gets more games than he should because he’s tall. Having said he’s tall, he can’t take a contested overhead mark to save himself. No wonder no other Club is currently chasing him.
  14. I guess we now understand why NO other Club is chasing him.
  15. His first half confirms he is a very ordinary player and GWS football management won’t spend a minute trying to retain him because they’ll be happy to free up his salary. The golden rule should be that if their Club doesn’t fight to retain them, walk away.
  16. You’ve got no idea if you think ANB is on Base Payments.
  17. This is what some of us have been banging on about for years. Our List Management & TPP is a farce. How lucrative it has been to be a good ordinary B or C Grader at the Dees over the years. Also hasn’t helped overpaying so much for a bloody 3rd tall defender with ACL history.
  18. The Wagner brothers. FCS, our List Management is a farce.
  19. Tomlinson is clearly two Grades better than Stretch, however, I want to state that I don’t rate Tomlinson, who in my opinion is one Grade below Pederson. 4 years at $2 million for Tomlinson is a terrible list management decision. But, it is the Demons after all.
  20. Perfectly describes Tomlinson and we’re apparently offering him 4 years at 1.6 to 2 million.
  21. Ray, I have looked closely at Tomlinson recently and in my opinion, pace is not one of his assets. I think he can run all day, however, he is a real plodder.
  22. Hardly massive when Tomlinson is a C+ player at best and is going to take 4 years at decent money out of TPP. Agree with Lyon, save the Tomlinson money and try to land an A Grader. FCS Dees, at least have a crack at a genuine A Grader.
  23. And there are idiots on this site that actually believe we have good salary cap & list management. If you want an example of outstanding salary cap (TPP) management, take a look at Richmond. We’d be lucky to have 2 A Graders whereas Tigers would have about 10.
  24. Fact still remains that Howe butchered the ball several times a game at Dees, however, butchers it twice a season at the Pies. Is it far superior coaching & development at the Pies? I’m sure it is.
  25. You really have no idea. You can’t deny there were plenty of Demonland Posters wanting Howe out of the Club. My point was that Collingwood & Howe has made them look absolutely stupid. I would back Clarko to do something similar with Frost.
