  1. And take Hocking with him. Who would've thought we'd be longing for for Demetriou/Anderson again!
  2. This is just further proof the game is run by the media and any changes have nothing to do with the supporters, clubs or players.
  3. Depends how poor his attitude was I guess. Was he a genuine no-hoper or a kid in his early 20s on few hundred K a year partying it up with his mates?
  4. Has goal sense too it seems. You can't teach that and none of our forwards currently have that.
  5. Haha yeah fair call but not to MFC which is what I meant (in the context of Jackson returning to west coast cos of NicNat/Suma - who I think has been at Freo for some time anyway so not sure why it would matter)
  6. Who cares what Preuss thinks? If Preuss demands selection he'll get it if not he'll be off to another club or have a short career. Balls in his court. Same with Weideman. Positions won't be handed out, you're gonna have to earn it.
  7. Just like Gaff and Judd came back to Melbourne and Lukosius and Rankine back to SA. If we overlook players because they might leave us one day we might as well pack it in.
  8. Those highlights are more impressive than the clips they showed on Foxtel after his name was called
  9. How many other potential small forwards were taken with speculative picks and amounted to nothing? I'm not saying the club shouldn't take Pickett (as I have no idea), if they think he's good enough you take him. But 1st round/top 10 picks should always be Best Player Available and not a reach based on needs. Taking Jackson and Pickett is fine if they are considered the best players there at those picks, but if we're doing it to try and fill holes in the list it will bite us on the [censored].
  10. Just the thing to get the players pumped for preseason 🙄
  11. Thanks for the response mate. Interestingly in today's Sun it states that all clubs have to spend a mandatory minimum of $250k on mental health programs in 2020 up on $125k in 2019. I think it said up to $450k could be spent on this outside the FD soft cap? Could've got that wrong though.
  12. Injuries weren't the reason we dropped out of top 4 but they were a reason we finished 17th. They made a poor season a terrible season. Did anyone have any questions or were comments made about our investment in data analytics or player psychology? A lot has been made of the mindfulness work done by Richmond and I think it's something our players would really benefit from particularly having a relatively young group.
  13. I can't imagine anything coming out of this other than platitudes, " we understand how disappointed the fans were", we're on the right track etc etc The email that announced it made it clear they won't be fielding questions related to any off field issues which only leaves onfield and I can't imagine they'll be going into depth about gameplans and the like
  14. Such a shame he was born about 5 years too early. His silk could've really helped us during the Northey years, might have helped us pinch a flag in 1990.
  15. As well there should have been. But I think that's different to a being a club in crisis.
  16. Assistants come and go, it's the CEO, President, Coach, Footy Manager - the key roles that promote stability.
  17. It's the mental crises of posters projected onto the club.
  18. Continuously trying to develop and complicate the gameplan stifles the players and bogs them down. Goodwin needs to pull back a bit and let the players play to their strengths, just "trying harder" isn't going to help anyone. Getting away and learning from different organisations offers fresh perspective and can help blow away the cobwebs.
  19. We don't need superstars. We need solid players with speed and elite disposal who can play 200 games for the club.
