No toys were thrown out just making a point about individuals like yourself who try and discredit a person every time they post something. 
Hannebery left Sydney and we were in the frame but missed out, luckily I might add. 
It’s never a done deal until it’s signed as players change their minds, other clubs get involved or the club involved pulls out. 
I get told things that I’m happy to share as I enjoy the discussion and I know others do also. 

Appreciate the intel you post when you get it. It’s easy enough for us to separate the posters who actually have intel over the Tom Browne types. Cheers ?

Isn't that the precise same selling point we have right now?

It's never easy attracting talent when you're one of the smaller clubs, let alone one which never plays finals, but we've done it before and we should be able to do it again.

I hope so, we'll need it! Maybe next year, aye?

Go Dees.

Saad is a great player but we are spending too much coin on our back line and neglecting our forward line

Tend to agree. But every team needs good ball users and line breakers out of the backline - it makes the forward line look better.

Our backline next year is:

May, Lever, Salem, Rivers. If we move 1 of Salem or Rivers to the midfield then it's down to 3. Who's going to fill the last 4 spots?

Hibberd 1 more year and not an automatic selection. Tomlinson and Lockhart are suspect at AFL level, they shouldn't be plan A without a decent plan B.

Oscar? Smith? Chandler? Hore? Nietschke? Petty (might be needed forward).
Jetta, KK, Wagner likely go.

Port and Richmond are 2 of the best backlines in the league, very hard to get games in. Webster was a good player for a long time, Ratten is just making sure the side has some youth. I'm happy to listen to any other suggestions as well. Either way I think we need to bring in some cheap defensive depth options.

I'm still for moving Sparrow back, I know you're not keen on his disposal but he seems to have tidied up a bit.

Good size, strength and reasonable leg speed.

I just don't see him as a mid, doesn't find the ball.

The obvious replacement for Jetta, another who couldn't find the ball further up the ground.

We ain't getting a big fish.

Saad, Smith, Mihocek IN

T. Mac, Pruess OUT

Those 3 ins would add up to the impact of a so called big fish. That's why I don't see all 3 happening. Salad and another B grader at most.

Smith, Gunston and Briest all look too happy to change things radically. Mihocek probably as well.

Just now, whatwhatsaywhat said:

if that's the case, any interest in jamie macmillan as a delisted free agent?

u cant say you'd consider him at 28 ahead of witherden, cumming, saad? 

witherden - out of favour 3rd rounder gets it done

cumming OOC - 3rd rounder gets it done

saad OOC early second rounder and swap some late ones probably gets it done

i didn't say that, did i?

i'd take all three of those blokes over macmillan but the latter is a dfa and will be, as @DeeSpencer indicated he's interested in, immediate defensive depth for nothing

i would definitely be keen on witherden but peptides nutters think a) saad won't leave and 2) he's worth a first round pick (lol)

Where's Norm's gif? Hell no useless he is the main reason North are so bad.

Witherden, Saad, Williams, Philips and Stephenson excite me the rest of the players who have been mentioned don't.

Rumours can be fun but we've had some posters go above & beyond.

Misleading would be a kind word.

That's where it's no longer fun.

Yeh but it's not gospel. If you're stupid enough to take it all seriously you might need another hobby.

*** i dont mean you as in you @rjay just a general reference.

People jist need to take a deep breath and move on.

A little, but I'm not sure he has a clear role these days. Lacks a bit of skill and speed for half back, lacks a bit of size and ability in the contest for a deeper role.

And he's a smart guy who probably has a lot of other things he could be doing. I'm surprised North haven't kept him around for one more year  as a good character guy whilst they chop so much from the list. It might well be that he's ready to get a real job rather than risk his body for 100k a year in the 2's.

Saad interests me but we might not be able to get it done. It's also a lot to give up for a 26 year old. Cumming if he's cheap. Witherden concerns me. Looks a million dollars against bad teams but under pressure he falters. There's a reason he's not getting games for Brisbane right now. If it really is a 3rd rounder and not a huge contract then fine, but I'm not sure that will be the case.

His decision making in particular was far more advanced than I expected. I'm certainly not against trying him there. I'd test him more on a flank before deciding he has the shutdown qualities of someone like Nev.

I think we've been so spoilt by young mids who can come in and get 30 touches that we forget it's ok to have mids who get 15 and do other things well. In fact we're probably a better side with a guy like Sparrow who has a defensive focus and skirts the packs more than diving head first in to them with our other mids.

I think we should have a crack at Riley Collier-Dawkins. I know inside mid isn't what we need but this kid is a big body with legspeed and a heap of potential. If we're been bold and willing to let go of Viney or others we shouldn't be afraid to make a few offers.

Worst case scenario is it keeps Richmond honest and ups what they have to pay him.

Seems to be a lot of key fwds on the move this year, if dees want one it will happen. If a Ben Brown or Daniher is out of the question due to cost and injury then even some one like a hooker could straighten us up until Jackson is ready, but as we saw with the King Brothers this year that day can come quickly

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res
