Oliver's football resume to date:

-3× All Australian 

-4× Best and Fairest

-2× AFLCA player of the year

-Premiership player

It's insane to think that this guy is barely half way through his career.

Add 150 more games, maybe a Brownlow, another 2 B&F and another 3xAA (excluding all his Premiership medals) and much as I hate to say it...move over Robbie Flower. That Gawn and Petracca are in the same team at the same time is nuts. We have to win at least one more premiership and hopefully 2-3 more with these guys in  our team.

Goody's done far more walking than talking

I reckon we need a vote. Something like ‘Is Goodwin the right guy’.

Just throwing out there. Oh, wait.

Pfft my table was way closer to the stage. Besides she’s brunette whereas I’m more an Oskar Baker shade of red.

Goody:

Winning after winning 

Tough and brutal

competition 

We finished 2nd but in the end after the finals, disappointly if hurt 

Wanted to do it for Melbourne faithful and enjoy a win at the MCG 

Aim to create winning behavior and culture of success 

Last 2 weeks analyzing what needs improvement 

+10 consecutive wins 

+growth and premiership of Casey (!!!) Mark Corrigan

ways to get better - culture and game style and adding VFL talent

Need to put pieces together to get back to the top

thank you to 65000 members 

in the words of “Neale Daniher” … ‘Become a person of value’.

I look at the top 10 and think what a group of talent like Iv'e never seen before.

Sure Goody and Dees have some issues but with hard work and smart recruiting I'm looking forward to 2023 to watch this list grow again. (Someone here a while ago predicted LJ would be 15th - close at 14th) ahead of only compromised layers. Dissappointing end to an heroic 3 years with us. But best wishes to him)

And Clarry as a once in a generation talent .

I’m sure some will never accept it, but it’s crystal clear that the coaches really value what role players like ANB (8th tonight) bring to the club.  It’s not all about the commonly talked about stats.

True that.

However it doesn't mean ANB is not also in the" bottom 6" and is  not as good as role players in the Premiers " bottom 6"

Clarry is a Champion.  Absolutely one of our greatest players ever. 


Trac runner up and deserves high praise for another sensational year. Well spoken young man. 

Mayzy getting third is great recognition for his role and his backline leadership.  Love his speech.  Relaxed after a few “reds”.

If they "lowballed" Jadyn surely it means they can't balance their books .

Paying $600,000 for Grundy?

Imagine the list carnage if they'd had to pay to keep Jackson. 

They were already stuck with Weideman for another year and no one  else wanted him( unlike Hunt)

Geez Loiuse..

Geez Loiuse..

You make tough decisions early so you don’t end up doing a Collingwood who will be paying around $700K next for players not on their list

its clear we don’t see Hunt as part of our plans and the coaches expect Bowie etc to replace him next year

Surprised to see ANB above Langers. His work rate is obviously highly rated.

I think it is more the role he plays where he helps the backs out and yes, uses his workrate to link through the middle. But he also does some disruption around stoppages for CO13 and CP5. Not to mention allowing CP5 to pizz off forward sometimes by himself as he follows his bloke.

I actually think it is a problem to have a FORWARD have that much responsibility that isn’t to getting in the right spots for us to move the ball and hit dangerous spots in the F50.

Next year, we need to tweak our web and the direction to our forwards so we actually have players coming at the ball carrier. We also need to up our pressure again but let’s not get into it in this thread. 

This thread is to celebrate our Demon God Clayton. May we all live in eternal damnation and evil fire at his altar.

Amen

Jordon wasn't dropped, he was clearly hampered by his knee injury from r19.

Both can be true. He played VFL after being omitted from the afl side, that’s dropped. But it was injury related.

I think his form started to tail off a fraction before injury anyway. He’s our fittest mid, I believe he even beats Langdon on training gps, but it’s a long season for still a young player.

Demonland voters have once again picked the same winner as the Club - and in this instance have the same Top 6, albeit slightly different order.

    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

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
