lever
gaff / whitfield

That would be a sensational summer for us. 2 of them would be great as well.

I wonder why you suddenly have a so called fallout when a year ago you won a premiership with this team. 

Has he sooked it up because Bevo dropped him because he wasn't performing, or did he not think he got club support when his marriage fell apart. Which would surprise me considering how they supported Tom Boyd. 

No I don't want him. yes he is only 23 but doesn't chase enough and a bit inconsistent. I hope he sorts it out with the dogs and stays there. 

Nothing to do with being dropped, lots of rumors involving his ex and another player but that was on the back of Jake not being the most upstanding citizen either. Some suggestions are that he needs to leave to be able to sort out the issues.

Not sure if were the place for him, he's not known for his pressure game (he can be great but on a very occasional basis) and hasn't got the tank to move too much further than the Fwd50.

Image what could be accomplished with both Stringer and Petracca playing the half-forward wing/midfield roles.

I hope we go hard. He's a star who's market value is currently below its true worth. 

There is no doubt he would be an amazing addition to the team if we can get him back to somewhere near hs 2015 form.  There isnt a team out there that could stop all three of Hogan, Petracca and Stringer each game.

Will be interesting to see if we throw our hat in the ring.

Bulldog's asking price will be for 2015 stringer, not 2017 stringer. 2017 stringer isn't worth much more than a 3rd round pick. 2015 stringer is a first pick and something else.

Rather Whitfield if we are dealing first round picks.

Absolutely spot on. We have lots of vanilla types & we are short of game changers. I know it's a risk but if Macca & Goody can get him fired then no-one will stop these three. Would be exciting times!

That rumour was knocked on its head and hasnt gone any further. 

But interestingly on 7 news tonight they said it was more the bulldogs that are pushing Jake towards a trade. 

If we were to get him the dogs would want something good in return. he was a number 5 pick after all.

Sounds like a job for Clarko & the Whawks.   And they're not that big on defending anyway, are they?

Macca was there when Stringer was recruited, wasn't he?   Macca coached them in 2012, 13, & 14.

Stringer started playing senior AFL games in 2013.  So Macca coached him for 2 years.  He should know him well.

He is talented, but a difficult proposition I reckon, if Bevo is OK with him leaving.

Straight swap, Watts for Stringer ?

I reckon we have to give him consideration, but he is not our first priority. Recruitung him is definitely behind Lever and Whitfield. His best is amazing but he has fallen a long way off his best.

I won a lot of money backing the Bullies to beat the Crows a couple of years ago in a game where Stringer starred. I have a soft spot for him.

Apparently if Stringer stays, Crameri goes, and if Stringer goes, Crameri stays.

In his 'Sliding Doors' article, Barrett says:

If Jake Stringer is the only Bulldog seeking a new home ...then... we'd be very surprised. As we said here last week, not a happy camp. Carnage everywhere, on and off the playing list.

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-09-08/sliding-doors-finals-week-one

Players that have had issues this year and seem to not have the coach's support:  T Boyd, Crameri, Stringer, Cloke, Liberatore. 

Comments like preparation and lifestyle issues have been made regarding a couple of those players.

Looks like the reigning premiers have derailed themselves.

Stringer is a midfielder being played as a key forward through necessity.

He's in the mould of Ricciuto, just the dogs needed him to be mainly a goal kicker and he doesn't get many midfield minutes.

If he pulled the finger (has been lazy) he would be ahead of Whitfield and on a par with Martin.

Lot of if's but certainly worth a go if the FD think so.

Wow, ahead of Whitfield and on a par with Martin. Should be only a couple  of minutes until he is offered $10m from North.

Duderfiled has done some good things but not enough - also looks inured.

That Lambert goal has surely sealed it - even Richmond could not lose for here, surely?

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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
