  3. Pity really. I was hoping to see one of those smokeys from Casey turning up.
  4. I’m expecting May back in 4 to 6.
  5. Did the Casey academy boys including the big basketballer turn up?
  6. He should hang around #5 who happens to be best mates with a handy professional basketballer who is playing with the Philadelphia 76ers at the moment.
  7. I’m intrigued by this man mountain from the Academy. Do we take it that he plays for the Dandenong Stingrays in 2020 and if he’s good enough then he could get drafted? The club’s publicity machine needs to roll into action on this.
  8. He’s being well advised IMO. This is his last chance to turn his career around and make a decent living from the sport. A return to WA and a single poor decision could mean that it’s all over.

  10. Buckenara isn’t impressed. AFL draft 2019: Recruiter Gary Buckenara analyses every club’s draft haul Buckenara says: Luke Jackson at pick No.3 is a risk. While he was the best ruckman in the draft, I had him rated as the 18th-best player because at 199cm he’s undersized for a ruckman at AFL level and I’ve got concerns over his ability to play as a marking forward. I think he’ll be a bit lost in that role. He’s still raw but there’s no doubting his competitiveness and that he’ll work hard to develop his craft to become a very good AFL player, but he’ll need to improve his marking if he’s going to play forward and ruck. Hopefully he can grow a bit more to get over 200cm and be a better size for an AFL-level ruckman. Kysaiah Pickett was a bolter at pick 12 but the Demons are desperate for some excitement in the forward line he brings that as well as physicality. I think he’ll be given opportunities at AFL level in 2020. He has Liam Ryan traits. Buckenara’s verdict: It’s boom or bust on Jackson but they have addressed list needs.
  11. Do I have to travel to Ohio to collect on the bet?
  12. I understand that we’ve made the decision not to nominate Green. If so, would that be due to an understanding we’ve reached with GWS or are we committed to Jackson and scared that GWS would not match our offer because they want Jackson too?
  13. Did anyone hear Chris from Camberwell on Thursday night?
  14. It seems to me that Green is certainly worthy of nominating at #3. The failure to do so would come as a surprise to me - why are we being such nice guys?
  15. Here’s a possible #97. Family reunification and matches the club’s preferred height profile - Ryan Bennell
