LOL.

I think players have caught up with the fact nuffie fans like you and I - and every Jay Clark, Jon Ralph wannabe - jump at this sort of stuff. It's all one big joke and everyone's in on the act. See Dangerfield on IG.

Yeah right. As if every media buffoon is trawling social media trying to get the scoop on Garland's decision. Dangerfield's decision has been a news event for over 18 months. Nobody gives a rats about Garland.

People like you are talking about it here, so looks like some might be interested.

I get a little bit embarrassed when people start wetting themselves over SM banter. Then I remember that Ralph et al have build well remunerated careers around that very thing.

Who was 'wetting themselves' exactly?

It was just generating a bit of discussion

I don't see how mentioning Tommy's comment could be anything other than harmless

Exactly. I doubt that many will be traumatised with whatever happens with Garland.

Despite all his occasional clangers, he's never been dropped - and rarely if ever starts on the bench. He is one of that rare breed who can play tall or small depending on the forward mix of the opposition. He is therefore a valuable member of our list.

Must say I'm surprised we haven't re- signed him. May be he and his manager been hiking in the Himalayas since Mad Monday .

Hardly wetting myself; it's a fairly potent comment from the players themselves (whether a slip of the tongue or pure banter remains to be seen). Either way, it's certainly more newsworthy than the usual "unnamed source" or "closely connected" comment from some random Facebook poster that purports to know the inner workings of our recruitment department.

I don't really mind one way or the other with Garland; I'd prefer he stayed but a compensation pick between 19 and 26 could equally be used to our advantage, especially if we end up trading pick 24 for Melksham.

Someone is going to have to take intercept marks this year off half back, Cross and Howe gone means we're a bit light in that area.

Personally I think he's OK, you know what you're going to get from him. He might only have one more year left. No other club will probably take him so give him a one year deal.

If White and Oscar Mc surpass him it's win win. Even if he ends up at Casey it's good to have blokes like that in the team for development etc.

I'd expect it will be a 3 year deal, but for less money.

I've said previously I think they should move him forward next year, but alternate he & Dunn depending on match ups.

If we can land Charlie Curnow in the draft at Pick 6 then I think beyond 2016 Col will become just depth for his final few years, which is fine.

I like Col, so although I voted for him to go, I'm happy for him to stay.

With Lake retiring at Hawthorn, doesn't anyone think that they'll make a play for Garland?

Hawthorn can spot talent otherwise he would've already had his medical there.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
