  1. Fair call, i guess its just that i see other clubs that welcome the history, embrace the heritage and acknowledge the past players and it seems like we dont? was just a suggestion anyway to try and instill some pride and love to the club, because ta the moment, unbelievably 12 months after we played in a prelim, the club feels like its a cold and miserable environment again.
  2. All good McQueen, valid point on the us eof first rounders, I hope Nev and Hibbo can bounce and have a good year next year.
  3. I was being a bit flippant with my remark about new game style, and agree with a lot of you post. One thing we should never compromise on is fitness, it keeps you in a lot more games.
  4. If they had to learn it on the run then its a red flag for our coaching and football department. It should have been drill'd in over and over again. And i might be one out here, but there was a new game style? i didnt see it? two way running isnta new game style, its just what is expected in a football side.. any football side, apparently not ours.
  5. That is a mind blowing read, if anyone is happy with what Brayshaw dished up this year then they should get out of the game, most of his efforts were half hearted, he had zero responsibility for how his disposal went in a contested situation (wasn't alone there) and 2 way running.. more like two wayS of running - slow and not fast . Its an awful article and a bit insulting.
  6. we really need to stop with the Brad Hill stuff, he is not coming to Melbourne, not happening, period!
  7. Yeah, its unlikely that he will do that so there is an element of fantasy about it but its 100% real in the fact that its what he has to do.
  8. I know we all see things differently which is great but IMO i think Hibbo and Jetta are almost done and Laird would be amazing for us.
  9. Thats exactley what i would do and we should, the Crows want to refresh their list, they would take pick 13 for him. As long as when we split the pick, we get a player from the Giants, we also need to refresh the list a bit so we need to get new faces in. I would do it in heartbeat, use pick 11 on the young fella from Norwood , Stephens, who looks a really good type and exact player we need.
  10. Its interesting watching the Australian cricket team get and the players get so much out of having a couple past greats back in the dressing room like Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting. I wonder if the club could benefit from something similar. How good would it be to have Neitz and Green or The Wiz just in and around teh group for a couple days, just to install a bit of fun, a bit of comrade and just to lett he players know that the club is united and all behind them, they have another avenue to go to have a chat, Neitz and Green on the training track, just helping out encouraging, just ambassadorial roles.. i think for one it would be amazing and it would straight away create a bit of "all in" culture. This is where i think Goodwin has to be less stubborn and open himself up a bit, let others in, exactly what Hardwick and Buckley did.. and look whats happened.
  11. That's not bad but i dont think Hibbo gets its done.. maybe its Hunt and another player?
  12. Yeah i think King would be great and that scenario is probably spot on, King and Pick 17 (end up 19ish) for Pick 2. BUT i really think we also need to add more top end talent, so i think we would need to get back inside the top 10 somehow.. and to do that we would have to offer something pretty substantial, is that Brayshaw to carlton for pick 8?
  13. I will put my hand up and admit to being super critical of him this year, he just didn't do enough or lead well enough, but i love him and love what he has gone through and what he stands for. Good on him, lets be honest, its good positive news and he will reach 300 games and he deserves to and this great (it is great for all of its non greatness...) deserves to have more than just 1 player reach the 300 mark. Good on you Jonesy, i hope you prove me and a few others wrong.
  14. all good points LN, especially the bold sentence. I'm a fan of both and in the cold hard light of day, i think deep down i would prefer both to stay.
  15. I think though you would get more for Brayshaw than you would for Viney? isntt hat your agument LN? to get something, you gotta give something? Im a Jack Viney fan, putting that on the record and i have before, but i think Brayshaw's currency would be higher. I think Carlton would be very interested in Brayshaw to support Cripps now that they have missed out on Coniglio, do that trade, and have Picks 3 and 8 at the draft instead of 11 and 13, or split pick 3 for 11 & 13 and trade Brayshaw for pick 8 and then have 3 picks inside the top 15. Good hand?
  16. Hang on, the Saints havent even appointed their new coach yet.. sometimes things take time.
  17. 2 r's in Garry. Yeah im pretty sure he hasn't got it from here but maybe.. im pretty convinced Yze is a realistic chance to cross to the Dees and like you say, all will be revealed anyway in the coming days.
  18. Correct, and up to 6 clubs explored getting Richardson on their team, so its a great appointment.
  19. I posted the below in the draft and trade thread - i believe Shaun Higgins should be on our radar and we should be asking the question! If we are worried about leadership and older heads in out team now that Lewis is out and Jones no guarantee to play all year in the s seniors then Shaun Higgins is our man. I firmly believe he has 3 years left in him, would be a beautiful outside user and compliment us so well. Now it depends on what he would cost us i know that, but great mates with Daniel Cross and worth asking the question i reckon.

  21. Just heard Gaz Lyon on SEN saying there might be another assistant leaving the Hawthorn nest, he was waiting for confirmation before going with it, but 100% he was talking about Yze... i suspect this is very much in play and hopefully happens sooner rather than late.
  22. This is a really good point and you are right on all accounts Devils advocate position here, what if Gus isn't happy and he just coasts along?
  23. Yeah i hear you, and i think i am the same but some part of me thinks he may not be happy, he might not buy in and should we trade him?his best is obviously really good, but i think he borderline a liability this year. Im very torn on it, and will probably end up really happy if we keep him.
  24. I agree with you and yep while i was referencing the draft and trade period, you are 100% right, the club needs to get everything right, as i feel there is an apathy around us, just look at the crowds towards the end of the game, Fans just lost interest, and how many times can this happen before some members just wont come back.
