  1. I don't think it matters a great deal, but he comes across as a really good bloke in that video. I have had a question over his ball use (even referred to him as a butcher in the past), but I'm looking forward to seeing how he plays for us. I hope that with another pre season under his belt and more kms in the legs, he'll be less impacted by lactic acid induced by gut running, and as a result improve his ball use.
  2. I like this idea, mate. Mostly because I think Kemp could be a star and if he's the second player we pick, the risk is lessened.
  3. Well, now you've blown it, mate. They're bound to read Demonland very carefully and will now be on the look out for a Galifianakis look-a-like, who uses a [censored] excuse. Anyone else who can actually attend and who lives in the state of Victoria, could you please let us know how tomorrow night goes, as I can't make it? Thank you, kindly.
  4. Quite a few posters I respect are on the Jackson train now. Group-think or is there something in that? I see the Nik-Nat comparisons at ground level in amidst a stoppage and I like how he gets involved (it's very Nik-Nat), but I haven't seen the footy IQ some speak of, it seems more like very good spacial awareness (the basketball background). This could translate to footy IQ, but only time will tell. I'm a Jason Taylor fan and with our increased resources in the scouting team, I'm confident to back in Taylor and co to make the right calls. I still really like Kemp and Robertson's grown on me. If we could somehow split our pick 8, I wonder if there's a chance we could land them both, along with Jackson at pick 3? Not long to wait now.
  5. It seems the draft pundits have started talking about him a bit more as of late. Was mentioned today on the AFL website as a future leader. A guy who averages 30 touches in the carnival has to be in with a top 5 chance. His stats are better than Walsh's at the same level. Seems to be a case of WA hiding their top end talent again. When you win the Larke Medal though, it makes it tougher to hide a player. Be fascinated to see if we go him. Any of our WA watchers know if we've spoken to him? Surely.
  6. No different from celebrity endorsements of any products, ever. The advertising industry's been working for a while now. That said, as usual, mate, I presume you're joking.
  7. Yep, that said, you could also argue the trading of Jesse could have given us King instead of May. If May can put together 22 games in 2020, we might be level.
  8. There's a couple of hit up passes in this footage. He's a decent kick, but sometimes rushes his disposal when he's at full pelt.
  9. I didn't talk about balance at all. I called it a tidbit.
  10. Bring him back to his real home I reckon. It seems we have a respected medical team now that could woo perennially injured players. It'd be funny if we nicked him back from Freo in a year or two for a second rounder.
  11. If we end up with Young and Murray as a DFA, we'll have stocked up on left footers. Of the likely left footers for Round 1, we'd have: May, Hibberd, Salem, Young, Murray, Fritsch, Viney, Hannan and maybe even Hore as well. 9 in your 22 is unusually high. The Bulldogs could argue they could have 10 in their best 22, otherwise really only North, St Kilda and Collingwood are anywhere near that number - they could probably field 6-8 players in their best 22 who are left footers. Does this mean anything? Probably not, but a tidbit nevertheless.
  12. You can understand why, with the Pies cap-squeeze, they've decided not to persevere with Murray. They have many of his type on their list, but he'd be a handy acquisition for us. He's another that would release Salem to play further up the field, but also give us some handy rebound and run and carry from defence, without absolute brainfades (ala Frost).
  13. It's on the website. https://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2019-11-04/bennell-to-train-with-melbourne
  14. I reckon it's closer to 6.7 times out of 10.
  15. Yep, incredible he's still so young. Absolute gun.
  16. Thanks mate. I wonder if he was a Victorian whether there'd be a lot more hype around him. It's really a problem this Victorian bubble. It means WA teams can hide their top talent.
  17. Jeepers. Would we want Robertson, PSD? He sounds solid, but not what you'd want for a top 10 pick.
  18. Hasn't interviewed well, allegedly.
  19. Haha, your time to shine, Werridee. Best 22s for the next 4 months.
  20. Wouldn't call this a leak. He actually just came out and said it, so I'd call this a bit of misdirection.
  21. I'd still seriously look at Gould for pick 8. Particularly, if Kemp is off the board by then. With Jetta and Hibberd slowing down and Salem not being the greatest defender, this guy could be a gun at AFL level. I read with interest the alleged/implied attitude issues, but he's a beautiful kick, got a bit of toe and is more naturally suited to defence than Salem IMO. Be interesting to see where he goes. Would be surprised if he lasted past 15.
  22. Imagine the flaggellation (or don't). The poor room cleaners.
  23. The Geelong away game is ridiculous. There's no commercial justification for it either. We'd get more at the G against them than they would down at the Cattery. I'm all for the game being a commercial beast, but this particular fixturing is neither fair or commercially just.
  24. Better engine too. That's what excites me about Harmes. Can play anywhere on the ground.
