  1. I reckon India are like Collingwood, biggest supporter=membership base and they basically control the whole sport due to the power and influence they wield.
  2. Gun recruiting!! Man if Bennell comes up to scratch, we will be a very different side next year.
  3. Go home factor is impossible to ignore. It's going to be a big risk taking Jackson. I think he'll be good but Perth is just so different to Melbourne. Hope the club has interviewed the bejeesus out of him to make sure he's not a flight risk.
  4. I'm sold, is there a strong go home factor though?
  5. Something ain't right with this. Why trade a bloke with X factor for a nothing pick? Goodwin doesn't back himself or his assistants to coach Frosty into becoming a more reliable team player? Frost has priced himself too highly for our salary cap? Or is it something else? If he does go to the Hawks, I bet you he becomes a much better footballer under the tutelage of Clarko and we'll be kicking ourselves.
  6. Yeah, but just imagine the learnings.
  7. Stinking it up in the GF, he looks a Melbourne player already.
  8. I'd love to know our stats on handballs to feet, we'd be number one by a mile. Also handball receives by a stationary receiver would be right up there. Speed of players exiting a congested area would surely be 18th. I'd love to know the average distance of attempted pass (hand or foot) that is turned over directly to the opposition. Call it the butcher stat. I'm sure we'd be right up there, or should I say down there? Number of players committing to tackle a single opposition player would again be enlightening. We usually send at least two or three due to a lack of trust in our team mate's ability to get the job done. Come on Champion Data, think outside the box.
  9. I'm not aware of any regulations around that. I think it's a case of you go to the AFL NGA zone that your junior footy club is aligned to. I don't think there are any rules around having to play for your local club. It seems that there could be plenty of wiggle room for AFL clubs to game the system. Would be happy to be told this is not the case however, this is the AFL we're talking about.
  10. No, he's only 11. Long way to go yet, he's only just had his first taste of the Freo NGA this year, a 4 session clinic run over 4 weeks by Tendai Mzungu. There were a heap of kids there including those with a parent born in the UK, not sure how multicultural it is really. My son is going to have to develop into one of these gun small forwards we're crying out for on Demonland, because I'm 177 cm and his mum is about 150 cm!
  11. Rules are if one of your parents was born overseas then you're eligible for a NGA spot. My son who has an Anglo name is eligible for the Fremantle NGA because mum was born in Colombia.
  12. Friend at work concurs Ethan, claims to know someone connected to the Dockers and the word is he has been looking at Real Estate in Perth.
  13. I would much rather watch paint dry than subject myself to that farce ever again. The only thing missing was a masked man coming onto the field with a steel chair.
  14. It was undoubtedly mine as well. I was at the ground and never have I roared " Ball!!!" with quite that ferocity.
