One of their top 3 players? Is it really that grim over there?

If you ever want to get 'killed' in Albury there is a pizza shop in Dean St, if you go at 1.00am you are assured of a punch in the face and you get your name in the local paper.  Apparently they are queued up out the front....

Good old  'Sweethearts' pizza joint. That place is always packed after all the army lads have had their drinking sesh at the 'Bended Elbow'. Fun times indeed!

How's he going to survive if he's not good enough to play at VFL,  SANFL, or WAFL level?

The same way that every other junior drafted does?

The NAB League is under 19’s now, plenty of guys get drafted at 19 without state league form. But my guess is as a standout performer it’s very likely that they would’ve organised a link with a VFL club at some stage later in the year. Or maybe playing local footy against men and the young guns game means he didn’t need it.

I think it's a great time to bring in a young key defender - he has the best individuals and team defenders to learn off.

Also think this might be the writing on the wall for Hore and Smith - like them both as players but from memory both OOC at the end of the year?

yeah both Smith and Hore seem to struggle to get out there and stay fit and healthy most of the time. probably best to keep looking for alternatives like they have with this guy Turner.

I’d be getting rid of them. Both have more than had enough opportunity. Injuries haven’t helped, but to contribute you have to be out there and these guys unfortunately haven’t been able to get on the park. The delicate balance is to determine the likelihood of them getting out there, in comparison to an unproven player. Opportunity doesn’t sit idle when we are always trying to unearth future stars.

Well put KDAL.

The secret is to prioritise the NOW but in the rear vision mirror keep  the future balanced and active for those  rainy days  ahead. 

Great work Footy Dept and JT.

All that is missing from DT's photo in his white uniform looking like Eagles Gov was a WC guernsey.

His  very slightly overweight physique plus his highlights reel marking and interception plus quick movement if the ball all looked so Guv I reckon we have a real salt of the earth defender in the making.

Maybe  the boys can nickname Daniel "Gov" in honour!

Also the very positive  reviews  from a local or two  and DD reflect his character and ability plus potential for his age to date.

Another potential future rising star ( with an asterisk) 

JT and FD looks as though they have nailed another gem.

Maybe Carlton could have benefitted from your insight before the last trade period?

Haha, we were all saying this at the time.

The cost should be similar to Hibberd, Melk, Langdon...as you say a 2nd rounder, or commensurate trade.

They always paid overs...and for 2 of them.

Spot on.

Just on this again. Carlton really did [censored] the bed last off season and completely lost their nerve. They'd been building through the draft and filling holes with cheap ex high draft pick Giants and had built arguably the best spine in the league, all essentially 25 and under.

They then had a star in Cripps in the middle and a rising young superstar in Walsh joining him, but they had little else besides an aging Ed Curnow to assist them. They desperately needed to go after genuine A grade or at the very least B+ grade mids from other clubs and/or go to the draft again to find them.

Instead, they decided to throw multiple first rounders away for two half backs. Mind bogglingly stupid and may well have undermined their rebuild. It has certainly put them back at least a year. And they also paid through the tooth for a very average Jack Martin.

Incredible stuff. The sort of list management that keeps a team mired in mid table mediocrity. And I love that Carlton continue to fumble about in the dark. Long may it continue. Pity Essendon can't join them.

McGovern surely should be nominated  for the inaugural Hayden Ballantyne Medal. Must be one of the most unsociable footballers going around. Any comeuppance coming this flat track bully’s way is welcome. That winning goal Tommy McDonald kicked on the road late 2018 with McGovern trying to tackle him down in the goal square  over there was poetry in motion. 
 

Obviously has admirers on this thread and elsewhere All Australian? But nearly gagged when his physique is described as ‘chesty’. Would give Nik Nat a run at Weight Watchers. He is just a Big Mac feeding frenzy away from a Michelin rating.

Perhaps the young Clarry comparison is more apt for young Dan. A transformation from country boy carrying some 🐶 love to an athletic footballer awaits?

Not to stick up for Carlton but Williams was a free agent and it was only 1 first round pick for Saad

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
