Daw, Vickery or Holmes?

Before seening your post, I suggested that we should play Spencer for Dawes against Hawthorn for these reasons.  I also don't think it's good for Max's longevity for him to [censored] himself every week, usually against two opposition talls/rucks.

Gee the moderators are being a bit touchy today!

FYI:

[censored]

verb
  1. 1.
    beat (someone) with a whip or stick as a punishment.

  3.  
noun
BRITISHinformal
  1. 1.
    an arduous climb or struggle.
    "a long [censored] up the mountainside"
     
     
     I would certainly not use the word in the other crude context, regarding our champion, legend and allround top bloke Gawn Dog.
     
    I know the moderators have an important job to do and apprciate their good work, but it's not communist Russia and please think about the context of the word being used with regards to it's meaning in the English language.

I'm sure BBO would agree. Flogging is his favourite pastime.

Daw - with Waite going down, will likely play finals this year and take Petrie's spot in the North side in 2017

Vickery - free agent who is a tall forward who gets it 6 times a game and is a lovely kick but can't ruck effectively

Holmes - an American who is another failed experiment at breeding a non-footballer into one

 

Daw gets my vote of the three, but would rather not have any.

Jake Spencer is better than all three of them.  In fact I reckon the Spencil is a bit underrated.

He's a really good vfl player Pet. Nothing more nothing less.

His window at Dees is closing.

Am I the only one who sees something in Vickery?

 

Maybe it's the Foward/Ruck (in that order) I'm in love with

I think everyone has the same fantasy about a ruck/forward clunking marks and kicking bags every game and then filling in for the ruck. But it never really happens at any club. Rarely anyway.

Neither of which he is really any good at. Vickery is not the answer to any deficiency we (may not even) have.

Would Vickery be worth a year if he was used as a tactical pinch hitter that could play around 6 to 8 games and kick 10-15 goals ? Seems like more of a list contribution than having players in the VFL all year. Prefer an injury free dud than an injury riddled dud

No he isn't very good at either, but neither was Jack Watts 3 years ago.

 

I just think we could find a place and do worse than have him as a back up in the VFL. 

 

I would take Vickery over either of our Kings

I've never seen him disgrace himself at AFL level though.

When he plays he is serviceable, and his second efforts and physicality are first rate. Sure he has limitations but if Gawn ever gets rested,  Spencil would come in and give us a contest at the very least.

Would rather try and pluck a skinny 18yo kid in the 3rd or 4th round of the draft and see if they can cut it 3 years later.

Which is pretty much what we have done the past several drafts with the two Kings and perhaps Hullet to a small extent.

I haven't seen Hulett play, but skinny is one thing he is not.

Would much rather aim higher and go for GWS' Rory Lobb. Contested marking marking and can do a decent job in the ruck. Out of contract in 2017, so we'd have to pay a fair bit to get him.

Daw needs proper mentoring and coaching. The raw talent is there. Nth have no idea what to do with him. 

I could help them out, if they're looking for suggestions.

There's nothing stupid about it.

I simply ask why all of the justifications thrown up over the years for the above mentioned aren't forwarded to Daw. Why doesn't he deserve this same luxury, because he doesn't play for us?

Like it or not Daw has potential. 

Im happy to wait until Daws career is over we compare them.

 

I'll give you a clue, Grimes has captained an AFL club and Daw is a reserve grade player at best.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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
