I'd stack Trengove's first 2 years up comparatively against Brayshaw's. 

I am not however saying I would take him over Brayshaw, but was responding to a post basically saying Tenners was a dud.

It is an interesting comparison though. Both started well, Angus had setbacks through concussion and looked close to finished at one stage. His comeback and development has been remarkable and a joy. Trenners first few years had him on track for something special, even if it would be solid and reliable special. Natural leadership and great work ethic. I saw him at Maroochydore one year in a moon boot and on a scooter still being involved in training, including doing push ups with the group. I rate Angus, but lament Trengove. Worse luck than the Greeks with Achilles tendion!

I never said Trengove was a dud, just that his first two years are ridiculously overrated. He played in a terrible team and his poise stood out, but he wasn't a great ball winner (numbers wise) and he never had explosiveness to his play.

Gus made it very clear that the position he would be playing in 2023 was a fundamental component of discussions he was involved in about his future.

Yes, he was very eager to ensure that he is fine playing a role in the backline and loves the group. But the subtext was text - his role will be a big part of his decision and this may lead to a midfield impasse; Oliver, Petracca, and Viney are frontliners and Sparrow and Harmes are part timers who are limited in other roles. I think someone is going to have to leave to make this work for people. 

And it may be Gus…

Just listened to Gus on Sen1116, won’t be holding my breath on him re signing in the next couple of days

Seasons end if at all was my take on it

Anyone know how to listen to this after the event? I missed it live and would love to hear it

You must have mis-heard.

No he didn't...he posted that Jackson was gone.

Another poster posted that a deal had been agreed and signed with Brayshaw.

That doesn't look so good now.

Yeah that interview was deflating. Talked about position on field being a factor in decision. He also used to language that suggested past tense when speaking about the club, implying mentally that he’s made the decision consciously or not to move on. 

I definitely thought he was staying and Jackson was going. After hearing the interview today, talk about position and the subtle language change, it now seems like both are leaving. What a crap result that would be!

Lol whoever said Gus was pretty much a done deal are kidding themselves after that interview.

It's very CLEAR that playing more midfield is a high priority as part of his decision making.

If that's the case then why do we continue to refuse to at least give him that opportunity. I'd much rather him in thr guys then Harmes or Sparrow.

What worries me about this interview is he really doesn't sound too confident in the team and if the ability to be hungry for long enough remains. It does certainly feel like the group is not in synch the way it was last year, but it has been evident in the games... wasn't a great listen tbh

yes thanks.  My mistake , wrong contract and apols to D11.

On SEN Gus didn't talk down the backline position thing, and loves playing with the group.

Just taking his time. Still not a posiitive look for a re-signing.

Still he was correct in his view that this hiatus hasn't affected his game which is true.

Hope he stays

I'm getting desperate now

Put him in the middle, ffs

I think after five concussions, the club is acting in Brayshaw's best interests. Better to be an interceptor than an extractor.  If Brayshaw goes he is displaying a basic lack of self-awareness.  I don't care anymore about these players 'going or staying'.

I don’t like the way he ultimately gives the club  an ultimatum. The selflessness that they talk about is an illusion.

Yeh what is this about? If you love the club and are loyal and enjoy playing footy in a successful team I don't understand the need to look elsewhere... One more concussion and the dude is toast anyway, idk but in the midfield you are more likely to get a knock to the head

    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

    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
