Goodwin was confident on Brayshaw staying though.

Seemed to be - not at all on LJ unfortunately which is extremely disappointing

The AFL loves the trading period in October, it takes the Spring horse racing carnival off the back pages.

AFL management will be watching closely the Jackson trade from above.

The AFL will not have their trading system compromised by a dud deal. It is in their interest to see that any deal serves the AFL.

We will be we looked after.

You are not alone dc. In fact I think we are both in the vast majority.

Not to worry ... the pundits will tell us to be grateful for Freo's first rounder, their 2023 second rounder and Meek

I would swap him for that, I know he is young but he ain’t a forward and not a top ruckman at this point perhaps lots of potential.  But “potential” is a strange future thing IMO.

Goodwin definitely  not his usual  smiling confident self in the latest presser.

I still think there is hope LJ will re-sign as well as Brayshaw.

Why on earth wouldnt they?

 

He looked flat.. on both players staying and the health of our game.

Wow...he's worth two first rounders (think Lever) one of which at least would need to be top 5.

Just calling women “sheilas” might explain why Uncle Bitter only gets a night out with Uncle Bitter. 

Maybe all their names are Sheila? So as a plural they are Sheila’s… and he just forgot the ‘ 😂

Yes but will we get that? I honestly don’t think he is but that is a personal judgement. Honestly just between you and me DJ ( ha ha) I think he is over rated. But don't tell anyone that as it might reduce our trading value.

Goody looks like he has had some sleepless nights to be honest. Its only natural though.. the intensity and pressure on the team has heightened significantly.. its not easy being the hunted, it takes another type of pressure to deal with. Also wonder if the impending departure of Ooze to the Giants is weighing on him a bit as well.. little things add up when the pressure is on.

The Club will be ok though, even if we lose Jackson and Brayshaw.. the club will survive.. we have cornerstone, generational players locked in.. we build around the stayers, not worry about the leavers.

Whispers there was a gentleman’s agreement before the season commenced, between LJ and Fremantle. Given Fremantle’s (unforeseen) form, I’m wondering if they’ve attempted to change any of the terms within the (unsigned) contract. 

I have got to the point ET where  I don’t care. IMO we keep if the cost is not too high. If too high get the best deal we can and move on. Of a choice between him and Angus then I would keep Angus.

Lovely. Did they start negotiating that the day after the Cerra to Carlton trade was finalised?

Or he has a cold or flu, like over half the people in Vic currently do.

This is so fascinating if true and I would love to know what goes on behind closed doors.

Maybe the Dockers have outperformed in there own expectations for the year and may need to fork out some cashola for the existing group.

I don't understand why there so easily giving up Lobb who was great up the ground this year and even better this year playing as a deeper target.

Being a genuine contender that they are, I struggle to know the appeal of letting go a current playing performing at a high level and attracting a player who has shown exciting 'glimpses' but is still someone based on potential.

If that's true, that is incredibly disappointing given Cerra was keen to come to us last year.

FFS why would Jackson do that when he knew we were trying to court a Freo player?!

i'd imagine because he was young and still a kid

your question would be better directed at his management who would be clearly the one holding the reins

Not sure but why can’t we do the same, if he wants to go back to Perth come hell or high water then see if WC will come to the party at least they have the picks that can satisfy us. If Freo won’t offer a half decent deal I’d rather see him walk into the draft before letting Freo just walk all over us. Perhaps he might come to his sense and sign on another term if a deal can’t get done.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
