Am I the only one who sees something in Vickery?

 

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

My Dad does, says McCartney could turn any of those 3 into a decent footballer but sees the most in Vickery. Not that I agree with him though.

We need pace and aerial ability .(with some disposal skill)

I'm not sure we will be recruiting anymore big clumsy dudes.

It could be worse and add Jack Fitzpatrick to this list.

We have enough of these type players HOWEVER..... Tyrone Vickery isnt as bad as most people think including me sometimes. 

Hes the 1 out of the lot and he is a footballer. I can guarantee that by next season the way Goodwin will have the side he wants our our skill delivery into the 50 will be absolutely elite and hence this is where Tyrone comes into the equation. Fresh start and remember he can play, good contested mark but combined with Petracca bullets as just 1 example we could make him look good

But yes we dont need him aswelll

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

Without hesitation I would take Spencer ahead of the other three.

Daw is still just a raw athlete, and I would be surprised if it didn't stay that way.

Vickery - I would question whether he is mentally up to playing top level sport.

Holmes is largely unproven, but probably the most promising of the three. Still going to take another couple of years though.

Spencer on the other hand is a ready to go ruck man. Another pre-season under his belt against Gawn, and he will be a more than capable back up ruck man.

Ideally though, the club should be trying to land a forward/ruck, in the mould of Peter Wright, Rory Lobb, or even Nathan Vardy.

We have one in Max King if he could just get his [censored] together, not sure whether he will survive this year though

To his credit, Holmes is hard at it.

He always has a few inches on the others.

I'm sure he can forge a long career.

He'd be pretty stiff not to get picked up.

SPENCER you are Kidding!??

Spencer has been on the list for Ages and has failed to make an impact ever!

Daw will take out the Mark of the year ( Spencer is lucky if he can get of the ground!)

Vickery has won games of his own boot for Tiges and can play ( Spencer has not)

Holmes is a raw untapped Talent. (Spencer struggles to coordinate putting boot to ball on occasions!)

Come on King, are you serious???

It is not so much that I rate Spencer. More so that I don't rate Daw or Vickery.

Daw isn't a footballer, he is just an athlete, I don't think he adds much at all. He is a fine looking specimen, but if you take the muscles away, would he be on an AFL list? I don't think he would. North have persisted for a long time. Longer than I would've.

Vickery has obvious mental issues for mine. Clearly he is capable. But for a guy who was recruited as a forward, he has only managed 156 goals in 118 games. If he wasn't a high draft pick he'd be playing country football. He might be able to win games off of his own boot, but that clearly doesn't happen very often. Mentally he isn't up to playing consistently good football IMO.

Holmes. I don't mind Holmes. I like him as a project player, and I think he is going to make it. But he isn't ready to ruck full time, and that is what a back up ruckman might have to do. They might have to ruck full time. He isn't ready yet. I am not against taking him, just that if Gawn did go down (god forbid), then Holmes still isn't ready.

Spencer is ready. He will be able to fill the role. That is all he needs to do. He doesn't need to set the world on fire, he just needs to provide a contest, and I think he can do that.

"Vickery has won games off his own boot for the Tigers"

Now I've seen everything.

In 118 games, there's been maybe five where he was among the top-3 on the day.

 

Anyway, Spencer is a full-time ruck, and Vickery is a full-time forward.

Spencer has value to us only as a back-up to Gawn, not as a partner on the field.

Vickery has no value to us as we aren't in need of any more of that position.

I suppose, with Spencer signed until end of 2017 and happy to play the understudy role, it could be easier to just extend his contract yearly and hope the two Kings come on.

We can also rookie another ruckman if needed as insurance.

Think you'll find Max King will be delisted.

Did I read right that he kicked 5 on the weekend in the DL?

Although, that is the issue... It was in the DL!

I hope he makes it as for some strange reason he is my 7 yr old son's 2nd favourite player behind the #29 on his jumper :cool:

Three years on the rookie list. Currently in the D League on form and couldn't get into the Casey seniors despite no Weideman,  Hulett or Tim Smith. Still gets pushed off the contest to easily also.

I know the key position players take time, but given he's been a rookie for 3 years now, they either need to promote him or delist him. I suspect it will be the later.

    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

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
