  1. Prestia should be a good pick up for Richmond, although offset by the loss of Deledio. Jake Carlisle will offer the Saints a lot. Not new recruits I know, but bring Bennell and Fyfe back into Freos side could be a bigger impact than any recruits.
  2. Bicks hasn't said much really. I think we need to see improved running capacities from guys like Petracca, Salem, Oliver, Brayshaw, Vandenburg and Stretch. We are also quite lean in the key posts outside of McDonald (CHB), Hogan (CHF) and Gawn (ruck). Those guys will each need to play 15+ games you would think.
  3. I enjoyed it. Hes offered a damn sight more than you, in any case.
  4. The whole club. If we have a poor year, the veil of negativity will be upon us in a horribly big way.
  5. Pretty sure we'll trade our 2017 pick (and maybe something extra) for a first round pick next year. Either that or for a player. Well go in pretty hard for a free agent over the next 24 months as well. List. Complete.

  7. Ok, I dont come over here (from bigfooty) as much as I would like to - and I'm starting to remember why. Mods, could please I ask you to please tidy up this thread by deleting anything off topic?..
  8. I understand exactly what you're saying. We should draft Gary Ablett Senior
  9. Fair bit of risk comes with Bennell, but if that was alleviated, then he'd be absolutely perfect. If we could do something for the double (Bennell and Dixon), then we'll have just about reached Nirvana you'd think. We'd just need to make sure their dealer doesnt deliver to Victoria..
  10. If you read throught the list of current free agents, its pretty slim pickings outside of Dangerfield, if you're trying to land a gun. The only way I see us bringing in an A grade mid this year, is by trading.
  11. Not that Id complain if we were able to lure James Aish, but when Roos said A+, I would hope he was referring to a bigger fish than that.
  12. I wouldnt be so sure. We are armed with pick 4 or 5, and I couldnt see any of the clubs below us trading their picks. We will have some salary cap room and are currently a better option than say Carlton or Essendon. We arent in a bad spot to chase a player at the moment, at all.
  13. I'kk kick it off by suggesting we might have another crack at Josh Kennedy from the Swans. He has 3 or 4 years left, and they have a big number of quality young mids coming through - and may be tempted if a high pick is offered up. Adam Treloar would also be a great fit, you would think?
  14. Who may we target, why would they suit us, and how would we achieve a deal for this A+ mid? LINK
  15. I cant see it happening very often. He was only thrown forward in the last quarter because Dawes and Hogan just werent creating contests and bringing the ball to ground. I can see Jamar or Fitz getting a run ahead of Dawes, before we throw McDonald forward again.
  16. Gawn is literally breaking out in front of our eyes. He'll continue to improve for 4 more years as well. He isn't going anywhere.
  17. Was trying to decide whether to peel myself off the couch and head along for the senior game ..you've just made my mind up.
  18. So Brayshaw has been best on ground in 2 of his 3 Casey games - and was still named in the bests for the third game. He's a good chance for round 1, but I wouldn't be surprised if we held him back until round 4 or 5.
  19. Brayshaw probably would have had a run in the senior side if it wasn't for his 2 x concussions late in the preseason.
  20. He didn't pull up sore - he was given a couple of days to stay behind and see family in Perth.
