We are not finished with the Italian side of hawthorn........

Are you the new Riddler! :) 

Sicily or Puopolo?  Rioli even?

Yes to Sicily - right age group and can play. 

No to Puopolo - he is already 30 and is slowing down.  Don't need anymore of those.

More information please?  Or are you just stirring the pot :rolleyes:

I was simply guessing D, based on the Italian names on Hawkes list.

We need to wait and see what  @willmoy  can give us.

How is Charlie Curnow going ? Some  Posters on here seem to think potential is more important than reality. That is rediculous!

Players develop at individual rates. Fancy that.

Correction - in the pursuit of truth, justice and the Demonland way, I checked and he is indeed of Italian extraction. So my apologies to LH and the Latvian community.

Thanks, RM. I was going to have to send my Mother down there to beat you with stale piragi and wash your mouth out with chicken broth.

Changing the subject it appears Kelly will be signing on with the Giants, was just reported on AFL360.

I always thought this might happen.  He'll stick around for another few years and then assess where he's at from there.  

On the flip side, it once again makes North look like complete mugs.  They've had a crack with a 'warchest' full of dollars and no one has gone for it.  Doesn't make them look good at all.

I agree if they don't win it by 2020 he's gone IMO.

Makes them look more irrelevant which is great;  they will be recruiting swat this year!

Don't think he can make it at the next level. Hasn't dealt well with close checking defenders. 

I really appreciate your insight of wa players psd. In fact demonland has a number of really switched on wa based dees fans.

Do you have a sense of how the wafl compares to the vfl in terms of relative strength. 30 years ago the wafl and sanfl churned out afl ready players. Is it my imagination that has reduced (note to potential dl pedants i now the landscape is different and i deliberately picked a post afl time frame)?

As long as they don't now throw their war chest at Lever.

Agree, they should've shut up after the Dusty fail.

Lever won't go there.

I think North have shown how important it is to play your cards closer to your chest.  They have been splashed all over the papers for months with this 'warchest' and all they've done is make themselves look desperate.  And now that they've missed out on these players they look even more irrelevant than they did before.

    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

    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
