“It was on the back of his trialling, which encompassed not only the game sense related tuition but also physical and psychological profiling, that we were able to offer Seamus an international rookie position on our list.” Derek Hine

This guy looks good wish he had of approched the Dees. Picked up all aspects of the game while trailing at Collingwood for 14 days got extended to 21 days then given 2 yr contract.

Would have you been interested if he approched us?

He looks rubbish.

whoa...that workout is so out of context really to our game it can hardly give an indication as to he adeptness towards Aussie Rules.. it obviously got his foot in teh door at the Filth...he was able to keep extending his trial.. and hes got 2 years.

Rubbish ?? Probably not :rolleyes:

keep in mind that was his "CV" tape...hes probably come a long ways from then..Seems quite adept at picking things up.

many many years ago.. 1983 to be precise.. I used to go have a kick in the park ( Regents, when I was bumming around London ) with an Irish guy I worked with.. now he couldnt bounce our ball to save his life... but he could mark and kick within a few weeks. Gee what a concept... an Irish guy playing Aussie Rules :rolleyes:... careful who or why you dismiss out of hand !! ;)

Completely agree with you, belzebub59, just because he's going to the pies doesn't mean you (deestroy) have to dish out crap to a bloke who's obviously got some talent. And it could open up another recruiting region.

This video shows that in just over a month of the original tape that he did go a long way and imagine now with the trial and contract, how his skills are.

I tell you what he doesnt have a bad kicking action at all. Looks better than many Irish converts who are a littel too used to the round ball. be interesting to watch his progress...even if he is fillth !! :lol:

again ..theres a whole country of them.. :rolleyes:

theres a few guys on our list hed put to shame..:lol:

For a yank hes worked out our ball pretty well!! Good luck to him .

PJ could do all that all that and more.

Good on him for having a crack i wish him well. He's a yank he doesn't know he should hate Collingwood.

He reminds me of Jake Spencer - but by the time Spencer is 24 he will be just as big and strong and whilst I'm never expecting him to have great skills I think he will be a step above Shae, plus he will be much better at reading the game, tap ruckwork and generally understanding footy.

Also I think this guy sent a video to all clubs.

Pass thanks.

Having said that, the team I play for had 2 American's do preseason with us this year, both started terribly, but with one of them in particular you could see the penny drop and he played a handful of games before he had to go back to the USA, and regularly made our best. We are far from AFL standard, but the bloke ran all day, and in straight lines (didn't take a side step regardless of the oncoming traffic!). His action was very similar to this Shae guy, sort of holds the ball on the point, a lot of his kicks were great, but his bad ones were exactly that!

what pisses me off is he and players alike have been given the spots on a list that should be occupied by aussie kids who have been working their arses off since they were a kid hoping that one day they will be given the oppurnity. i totally disagree with this appraoch that clubs are taking.

Dees = All Australian Heritage

PS: it not a racial thing as i would be happy to draft australian kids of all different nationalatys

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
