This would leave Freo with the ability to offer Dee's pick 3 & 7 for Hogan -  and they'd have a fwd line set up for the next decade with Hogan & Patton.

Would certainly give dees something to think about especially as we could lose him for  nothing in 4 years time if free agency compo is removed as spoken about.

Not sure Patton would be keen on going Freo, but maybe he wouldn't mind coming home.

Would we take 3 and Patton for Hogan?

Garland??

And if someone gets injured....

 

Exactly right BA.

That's why the rumor about us the other week of being into Josh Watts doesn't surprise me either.

We need tall defenders, rucks, ruck/fwd's and outside mids this off season.

Well there are rumours JH will be announced on a 4 year deal next week.

But yes, we are much better at keeping matters in house now.

The natives are getting restless at Pie land. Not in any big way, but it's bubbling under. Eddie has been there 21 years, no succession plan, directors aren't elected (they are appointed shortly before an AGM and then get "elected" unanimously because it would be unfair to turf them out so soon), directors are yes-man, the handover from Malthouse to Buckley bungled because Eddie panicked, jobs for the boys. Lots more stuff.

It's growing, but wins on the oval can take away a lot of pressure. More losses, on the other hand ...

it's delicious isnt it.

Had a similar convo the other week with bro-law ( ex pie player ) Res of family all gung ho  Pies Pies Pies...etc.. b-i-l  only one to suggest that Pies will slip..and badly next year. Or to put it another way....run fast on the spot, going nowhere.  An interesting observation was that if Bucks relents and starts bringing in top ups then its an admission that hes not getting the goods out of his current crop...( and NEVER will ) 

I laughingly put it the Pies are the new successors to Richmond. He thought 9th would be a hard get for the pies next year.. Reckons we should get used to the idea of years of finals.  I replied...DAMN !!  ( smuggly, amongst a sea of cold pastries !! )

7 of today's Swans side and 5 of today's Dogs side were rookies. 

My point is you turn over your list with more chances to improve by getting rid of players who cannot assist the list. 

ya gets the best roses by effective pruning ;)

Cmon Red, you know rumours and leaking are different. There are rumours he will only sign 2 years, there are rumours he will not sign at all.

The fact is, no body knows. Because, unlike some, we don't leak

There are rumours that the rumours are only rumours.

Pretty sure North is the club.

What's that got to do with what I said?

Also some of those 15 mids were obtained through the rookie draft and late in the main draft, which is my point.

Amazing that Hamling was a cats reject and now a premiership player and a huge part of why the dogs won, shows smart recruiting can make all the difference.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
