  1. Yeah agree, Brett was a gun, very reliable and steady, read the play so well. Great player.
  2. I think you will find we have 2 games organised against other clubs.. Essendon and maybe North?
  3. All good mate, its a weird one, these teams often get overlooked when talking about All Australia reps, essentially the same thing. Anyway to make a team as a CHB for 2 years in a row, then 3 years as a HFF shows what a player he was.
  4. Soooo will he be place don the LTI list? and does that mean with him and Nietschke we have 2 spots to fill?
  5. 1989 & 1990 he was named CHB in the team of the year, in 1991 it was renamed All Australian. 1989 B: A. Johnson, C. Langford, G. Pert. HB: B. Lovett, G. Lyon, G. McKenna. 😄 D. Pritchard, P. Couch, G. Brown. HF: N. Winmar, S. Kernahan, Gary Ablett. F: B. Stoneham, J. Dunstall, A. Bews. Foll: S. Madden, M. Bairstow. Rover: J. Platten. Inter: T. Daniher, T. Watson, M. Bayes, G. Williams. 1990 B: A. Collins, S. Silvagni, J. Worsfold. HB: B. Lovett, G. Lyon, G. O’Donnell. 😄 D. Millane, A. Shaw (capt.). G. Wright. HF: P. Daicos, S. Loewe, Gary Ablett. F: S. Kernahan, J. Longmire, S. Russell. Foll: S. Madden, C. Lewis. Rover: A. McGuinness. Inter: M. McGuane, M. Thompson, A. Liberatore, M. Tuck. Coach: L. Matthews.
  6. Simply must play finals. Anything less in my opinion is a fail, and make no mistakes about it, it will be very hard to do so. There are 2 spots i reckon up for grabs. OUT: Essendon / Geelong IN: St Kilda / Port Adelaide / Melbourne / Sydney / Nth Melbourne
  7. A beautiful kick, and a versatile player. All Australia forward, All Australian defender and played in the middle against Essendon one day and turned the game. He should be in the HoF i have no doubt, he Captained his team, BnF winner, long time state rep and Captain, Coached Australia amongst other things he has done in the footy community. If players like: Chris Grant, Barry Hall & Warren Tredrea (all fine players) are in, i would argue that Lyon is the equal of any of them.
  8. Hard to argue with that really. Getting a win in R1 is not the be all and end all, but imagine sneaking R1 in Perth, what a boost that would be.
  9. The season is a marathon, id expect a few niggles with a new training regime compared to previous ones, im tipping since they got teh footy's out pretty much straight away, you are going to get some impact injuries and footy related ankles and corkies. Id love some clarity on if we have an available spot on the list due to Nietschke knee injury.. can he be placed on LTI list and replaced?
  10. 8-10 weeks probably means the first 4 weeks of teh year.. its not ideal, but its not the end of the world. What we have to be clear of now is if Max isnt 100% for R1 then there is no way in hell he should play. Would love to win R1 but would rather not risk any kety players over in the west. Use Brown, Use Weid, Use Petty if we have to.
  11. I have been pretty strong on the fact that last year all we did was talk and never deliver, it actually really got to me. But i have moved on, i know it cliched but a club has to sell hope, i cant wait to see the doco, i love seeing players and inner sanctum stuff. I love Hibberd saying its been unbelievable pre-season, i love hearing our coaches are great, i love hearing our draftee's are training well and have fitted in beautifully. Life's a bit to precious to sweat the small stuff like this, im embracing it, im excited, i cant wait and if people are bagging us then, it means we get under peoples skin, i like that, Nth Melbourne just said they want to play finals, its hardly caused a ripple. There is talk and there then there is irrelevance.
  12. Im nearly certain he will get a spot. This would have to have been expected. Hiccups and hurdles all part of it.
  13. I have watched a bit of Bedford, at training i think he is more like Daniel Rioli type, rather than a Eddie Betts if that comparison makes sense? , moves well and i dont think would be anchored to the FP, if he plays he may be up the ground a bit i reckon. Anyway he is really coming on and from other reports i think he is the bolter of the pre season so far.
  14. I like it and dont agree with the negativity around this stuff, i understand it, but a video shouldn't cause such angst. The club is a business, it has to engage and excite, i for one love teh prospect of where we could go this year, it was hell last year, not much worse than that. Now will it be heaven or will linger in purgatory or be anchored in hell remains to be seen. But if we are not thinking positive as a club then we are failing our members. The club must promote, its up to the p[layers to deliver.
  15. Dont get me wrong im not really critical of them, i just thought we had other areas we should have addressed rather than an inside mid and half back flanker. The investment is pick 6 for May and KK could have been King, would be very handy. but thats teh draft for you, full of what ifs. i just hope they can have an impact and show something.
  16. Fritta to play every game, therefor kicking 50 plus goals. I want to see either a Sparrow or Jordan fight for a regular spot, investment wise it was big decision to draft these types of players when it wasn't a priority so they need to start to push hard for selection.
  17. The traditional FF role has changed, you look at our bigger Fwds: Tmac, Weid, Brown, Petty, Jackson, Fritta, Melk, Trac, Hannan, AVB, Joel Smith, Pruess at any given time, any of those guys could play out of the Square. I think its Weid and Brown right behind him. Big year for Weid.
  18. Its definitely an are of weakness, that specific small forward role, it has to be Pickett i think, but its a role that will be rotated throughout the year until someone grabs it. Interestingly enough, toward the end of teh year it may be Bennell if it works out that he gets back,it might work nicely for him to play that small forward role close to goal to ease back into teh game., ultimately you want him up the ground a bit but he is smart enough to play that small fwd role.
  19. For me, as another poster said, Harley Texting Goody is a great thing to hear. Im so excited by what might be with HB.. but also fully tempering my expectations, he really is in the bonus model.. imaging getting 8-10 games out of him on teh way to September, what a prospect.
  20. Great player, ok bloke , ordinary actor. Seriously though, good luck to him, big decision and i applaud it.
  21. Cruel, only thing worse would be him doing it in March. Sounds like teh club will get around him. that places him on teh LTI list and as another poster mentioned KK not looking anywhere near playing footy again, potentially 2 spots up for grabs for Rookies?
  22. Great reports from all, really appreciate them. The key to most good sides fwd lines is the mix.. and it feels like we might have it, Tom and Weid / Petty, Fritta, Melk, Trac. Cant wait 2020!
  23. I had a look this morning. Impressed by the numbers and the involvement, im not a serious track watcher so i cant compare. But a couple players really impressed me. Bedford - he moves really well, looks pretty complete and i will be very interested to see if he can push senior selection.. is there a chance we could go from no small fwds to having 3 genuine types in Pickett, Bedford and Spargo and Chandler i suppose as well. Anyway Bedford is tracking really well. Trac - have no doubt he has steeled himself for a good season and that will include being on ball. He looks as fit as i have seen him. Great signs. Like everyone, really appreciate teh update son training. Thanks.
  24. This is what keeps Omac on teh list ahead of Frost in my opinion. He is a lovely kick Omac..if he can find some desire i still think there might be a place for him.
