Sam Weideman another young man with plenty of class who acknowledged our club in glowing terms, helps explain why he was loved so much by his teammates, he sounds as disappointed that he didn’t quite make it as we are. Good luck Sam.!!

I was a big Jackson fan, but he departed disgracefully and disrespectfully on many levels, so I feel accordingly towards him now. 

I never liked Weidemans footy besides seeing a little potential (should have tested him in defense though) but the classy way he just departed, like a real man with fine character, leaves nothing but complete respect and best wishes for Sam.

He's been poised to deliver for 7 years now...

I love the guy, I watched him kick a bag and mark everything at Box Hill in his first year - his team mates were being slaughtered at Geelong at the same time - Roo's last year  - but the bottom line is every season after that was 6 years of 'promise'...

Loved the guy as well.

Similar mold to John Tilbrook, fantastic club man and great VFL 2nds player but could not bring that level of play into the Demons VFL side. All the best Sam with Essendon, don't take any supplements there and I am sure you will be a great Club man for them. Will always follow your career.

Being a fantastic clubman and a great 2nds player is where the similarities end.

Tilbrook was as tough as nails, bash and crash. Even tried his hand at gridiron

And though he didn't live up to the hype, he played some decent footy for us in his later years, especially 1973, 21 games, 24 goals 6 Brownlow Votes.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
