Cool that he has his own signature tune, though Aldous got the lyrics wrong a bit. 

'He's a Hunter, and a good man, be brave when he brings nothing home', should have been:

"He's a Hunter, and a good man, be brave when he brings no goals at home'

 

An Aldous Harding mention in an AFL thread. 
 

What a time to be alive.

Everyone is talking about his off field dramas so I went and googled, the DUI and Code 12 were poor no doubt, but hardly in the class of De Goey, Stringer, Stengle recidivists. I for trust our crew to bring him into the fold, and his delivery into 50 could rewrite our conversion rates.

It is the things not on the public record that made Hunter a problem child at WBD.  Think 'rat pack' behaviours.  Think culture.  Think the persistent reasons Dunkley kept asking for a trade.

Anyway, he is ours now.  We have done our due diligence and the club thinks they can reahab him.  So hopefully he lives to mfc standards and doesn't distract anyone.

Was happy to hear his manager acknowledge he's made mistakes in the past. Hopefully he's committed to good culture and good football and both parties will reap the benefits.

It's buyer beware no doubt but really hoping he can benefit from a fresh start.

For ND~50 this is a no brainer.

28 is a prime time for any footballer and he has a great left boot.

On the broadcast wing and given a chip out from one of the forwards.

Immediately we are better.

And 25- 30 is usually the years when blokes start to grow up and show some maturity

Got the following insight from a mate who is a lifelong Bulldogs supporter.


“Hunter is a gun winger (left footer) and premiership player (he has heaps of finals experience and 2 grannies under his belt). Bevo stuffed him around putting him on a half forward flank with only partial success so Hunter fell out of favour with Bevo. A couple of minor off field indiscretions and Hunter was banished to the VFL until we had so many injuries Bevo was forced to bring him back. 
If played on the wing he will give you heaps of gut running, marks, tackling and elite delivery to leading forwards… and Bulldogs are paying part of Hunter’s salary!!!”

Agree that the Recital Centre is an awesome venue. Saw War and Treaty there and the sound was amazing. 

 

Back on topic,  Hunter with a fresh start and a clean slate with the desire to earn respect from his new team mates has a heap of upside for us. His best is very good and him getting anywhere near that would be a huge win for us. Looking forward to seeing him on the G in Dee's colours.

You’re speaking my language Binman. Aventine is a great album.

I think more so that we were front runners basically for his service and were willing to pay the 200k. I believe St Kikda chased him as well.

Oh no!

Enough said. Let's let him get on with it.

Rights of passage are different, these days. Such maturation, 'adult' thinking and behaviours with appropriate foci usually occur much later for youth and young men today than such developments did in earlier years and timeframes. There were limited options, choices, distractions in a simpler world; those 'excesses' were vastly limited in comparison to the options that now exist.

With broader options and greater freedoms of choice, young men today - and this developmental concept is generalised, only - pass into adulthood having experienced the excitements of this world well beyond the excitements of a previous world. Fitting that many 'good times' into one lifespan that is already rather urgent, takes just a few more years of experiential and explorative effort.

The advent of the concepts of 'rights of passage' has changed, yet is not new. Look at the social expectations and allegedly limited experiences imposed on your father's generation, and that of your grandfather, in comparison. Look at your own sons and how different their experiences and social expectations have been in comparison to your formative life's journey. 

In the end it reads as a battle between frivolity and towing the line set by immediate authority and opportunity. 

Perhaps, Hunter has just been another variant of the model, as we all were at some point. Let him play footy and adjust to its demands when opportunity arises.

'Footywire' which is usually fairly accurate is showing a two year contract for Hunter.

This is the same as the remaining term he had at WBD

I'll update the Contracts Thread for Hunter.  If anyone sees any other info on his contract please let me know.

Have heard the exact same. Alcohol can absolutely destroy someone's life so I really hope we can surround him with good people, good therapists and he is willing to get help - if he can change and thrive he will be a huge asset. Sometimes a change of environment and then an opportunity to start fresh can give someone the ability to change who they are. I just hope he's willing to put in the effort off field to impact his ability to contribute to the club.

    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.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
