  1. 6.Viney 5.Oliver 4.Tmac 3.Gawn 2.Lockhart 1.Trac Apologies to May and Frost
  2. it's an absolute disgrace "The Architect" of brushing everything under the carpet between 2001 and 2007 Trevor Nesbitt is still CEO. He was told exactly what was going on by Ken Judge
  3. it will come and why wouldn't we bring in a player lacking mobility against a side who loves to create run and carry opportunities from their back half
  4. Really you ask, it ain't you. I like your input, don't always agree with it but it is balanced. Think along the lines of multiple user names
  5. What it highlights is the lack of understanding of how clubs work and outright blind faith placed in articles and what is said in press conferences. Only days ago the regular hand ringers were slating the club for not having a review, to believe that was nonsense. They are many of the same who probably believe the FD didn't review the prelim. Don't expect overnight turnaround gameplan tweeking will have been happening for a while but won't be set in for a while I notice the usual troll is making ridiculous claims again. Won't be long before this thread is derailed
  6. 2 weeks ago against Collingwood and they rolled us at the G in 2017 after we got out to a 6 goal lead from memory, Cam Mcarthy kicked a late one for them
  7. On what I saw last year old yes he has some good footy smarts and can use the ball well. This season barring a few cameo moments he's been disappointing. I'll reserve my judgment on him for a while yet OD
  8. I've tried to be polite, but ffs are you struggling that much now you want to bring points into it try this Oliver went pick 4, you would get two first rounders for Oliver Suns will have Pick 1 Crows may have pick 2 They may wish to trade Pick 1 or 2 for two first Rounders Pick 1 & 2 are a higher picks than what we used for Oliver. Don't bother replying I'm done
  9. Two first rounders could easily be traded for pick 2 so I have actually answered your question. Carlton traded last years Pick 19 from Adelaide for there first round pick this season, which currently is Pick 1. List building and development takes time. Despite what many Deelanders think not everything in the footy department business is black and white. Things are never as good as they seem and are never as bad as they seem
  10. Out: Garlett, Tmac, Wagner In: Lockhart, Smith, ANB B. Hore May Hibberd HB. Jones Frost Lever C. Salem Brayshaw Fritsch HF. Hunt Weid Trac F. Lockhart Smith Hannan R. Gawn, Oliver, Harmes I/C. Viney Baker Spargo ANB One thing Freo can do is run and spread expect Bennell or Stephen Hill to come in after this week. We need to be as mobile as we can
  11. Direct answer is not possible there are so many variables. you would get 2 first round picks for Oliver and possibly Brayshaw. Who knows what you'd get for 2 first rounders depends on who holds top end picks and what their needs are
  12. Despite his poor form Tmac will get you higher than pick 53 Max would get you higher than a pick in the 30s So whilst I'm aware they are not from that bunch, but patience is required. The players mentioned are very much only early in their journey Brayshaw and Oliver would send clubs into a frenzy if you put them up for trade now Weideman would also be heavily sought, see how much better he looked in the second half yesterday when delivery improved and he had a decent run at it
  13. 6. Gawn 5. Harmes 4. Petracca 3. May 2. Oliver 1. Gus
  14. Yes Mel I agree with you there, it's improved in the last month with some selfless acts and once confidence improves you will see a few more moments of brilliance which comes with belief. ND's speech to the playing group was all about that, show courage in difficult times, conduct yourself in the right manner
  15. I coach a team of boys who every year I show Danners speach and I ask them what do you take from that. First year was you're just showing us that because he's Melbourne but they were only 10 years of age at the time. Every year after BF#1 they have taken the true meaning of his speech. He's an inspiration to many and created a legacy for many generations. His speech whilst about his grandson Cooper was very much directed towards our playing group and bouncing back from the disappointment of 2019, when we've faced many hurdles. When you're down, don't play the blame game forget woe is me( many posters on here should take heed of that) in hard times show courage, act accordingly and look for opportunity and you will transcend. I hope they took it on board
  16. I get inspired by players backing into packs, sprinting to make a spoil to prevent an easy mark or score against, crashing a pack and putting their body on the line to bring a ball to ground for a teammate, I get inspired by chase down tackles or a player continuing to chase down an opponent when all is lost to apply enough pressure to cause a skill error. Those attributes are what makes successful teams and regular 4 points will inspire me along with being regular finals contenders. That's how I roll Mel, very much meat and potatoes. Liam Ryan's mark over Max was great, but his 70m run to get there impressed me more
  17. You get 6 points for one dead in front and 6 points for flashy goals. Jeff Garlett continues trying to kick flashy highlight goals as he has done since coming back into the side when he could a) run further and invite contact and handball to a teammate free who the opponent has just run off b) run further and kick a simple goal as opposed to trying to dribble a goal from 25m+ out or on some ridiculous angle c) play the %'s and feed it off to a teammate in a much better position as opposed to trying to dribble a goal from 25m+ out or on some ridiculous angle Those examples above have happened on numerous occasions which along for his lack of forward pressure and constant avoidance of physical contact are why he's not a team player
  18. because he lacks class and will go to his grave saying we got it wrong
  19. I agree Lyon should be in but the biggest problem with the HOF is the desire to put players more recently retired in over others who graced the game in years gone by. Hunter and Barker should have been in well before now Should there be more inductees each year IMO yes, I don't feel it would diminish the inductees. There's also the issue of spreading the inductees across the states and territories. Several HOF members Tredrea, Matthew Lloyd, Gavin Brown, Brad Johnson, Matthew Scarlett, Michael O'Loughlin IMO are all behind Garry and outside of Johnson does winning a flag hold more weight, it shouldn't but seems to. In terms of Brad Hardie whether you're to young to have seen him play, he was an absolute gun of a footballer with great skills. He played well over 100 games in the WAFL when it was at its absolute peak before crossing to Footscray. When Hardie played in the WAFL sides like South Fremantle, Swan Districts and Claremont would have matched any in the country. Hardie broke into the South side at 16 and was unlucky not to play in their side which lost the grand final that season. He was a regular the following year kicking 3 in the Premiership win. He was always a big game player winning 2 Simpson medals for BOG performances in State of Origin sides and also won 2 Tassie medals as the best WA player over the 2 state games in 2 seperate seasons. To win those medals he beat the likes of Glendining, Maurice Rioli, the Krakouer brothers, Brian Peake, Ken Hunter, Robert Wiley(who should also be in), Stephen Michael, Peter Bosustow, Wayne Blackwell, Leon Baker, Gary Buckenara, Mark Bairstow among others. No mean feet and well deserved inductee. Sadly there are plenty of other Brad Hardies out there who aren't in and likely will be overlooked for more recent retirees
  20. Been a good player for the club, played a role in setting standards and expectations. On field was a leader and helped get us over the line in games we previously lost. Haters going to hate and never admit they might be wrong. Showing there lack of class to the end I expected he'd spend the second half of his 3rd year at Casey but thought it would be under a different set of circumstances. Cheers Lewy and all the best to you and your family in whatever path you choose
  21. Hunter, Hardie and Barker all good inductees Quite ironic Hardie and Malthouse being inducted in the same night. Hardie still holds a grudge
  22. Pruess becomes first ruck option if Gawn is injured Pruess does not have the mobility to play as a permanent forward whilst giving Gawn a chop out nor is he that good a mark to play that role Pruess does not have the tank to run out an AFL game as first ruck option Forget the SCG it isn't big enough a ground to expose his weaknesses You will see a trimmer Pruess next season and beyond
  23. That's nonsense depth is to play a role when half a dozen players made up of VFL level or inexperienced kids need to come in. TPF39 covered it well We've had games where we have had to play close to a dozen of those types. That's inarguable
  24. and several assists and hitting targets on the chest in traffic in a down season this year. As I said in another thread he'll be fine especially when he builds a tank
  25. Pretty much nailed it, funny how Australian society loves to play the blame game it stems into the workplace, sport, junior sport. I didn't get the job because he/she is mates with the boss we lost because of the umpires we would have won if Hogan and Watts were playing and the icing on the cake is the onfield performance this season is all down to PJ leaving Nobody wants to face facts, we are smashed by injury this year, resulting in depth players getting more responsibility than they should, that can work for a few games but not for extended periods, confidence has been hit and that combined with the form slump has us where weare at. Some positive signs have come in the last few weeks which might have helped us get a few extra wins in the earlier rounds had we played that way earlier but that would have papered over some cracks, which I'm sure the FD is fully aware of and working on As DD has stated and all others have intimated Taylor has found quite a few Diamonds in the rough and his strike rate is pretty good. AVB without injury big game chager for us, Hunt after a poor 2018 showing good signs again. Nibbler by no means a gun but a running machine and good depth, Fritsch is a good decision maker suffering from the injury crisis and having to play where he's not best for the team, Harmes turned into a B+ grade midfielder, Hannan really important and a good player Spargo unlike others I have no issue with him makes very good decisions with the ball in handonce he builds a tank will be valuable, Baker looks like he belongs, Hore getting better every game As others have said Richmonds flag was built around a nucleus which took 8 to 10 years to build, Eagles took time to rebuild after the 06 boys moved on and believe me a mediocre side with their home ground advantage is almost a monty for top 8 We'll turn it around, we have to much talent not to. I'm not saying we'll do a Dogs or Tigers next year we still need a build towards our nucleus hitting 23 to 27years for sustained tilts.
