So.... do we strategically drop games against the bottom 4 to improve our pick?

Odds on we would get done for tanking even if we finished top.

As I mentioned above, Alan Richardson was interviewed on SEN over summer and was asked whether the Kozzie speculation had the potential  for the distraction that Jackson did.

Whilst he didn’t say it in so many words, he absolutely implied that Jackson deceived the club with his meeting with Freo. He said something like “it was a bit of a surprise to read the headlines that he’d had a meeting with Freo after we let him go and see his family”. This is after Richo thought both parties were in a good place for the majority of the year.

He then also said “I don’t want to go into too much detail” in reference to his disappointment of the way he conducted himself last year on the contract front.

I took that as Jackson stuffing the club around last year.

Can I suggest that it is possibly more likely that Jackson was a bit of a pawn in this, with Freo adopting predatory behaviour and his manager being an accomplice?

From everything I've seen Jackson is a simple fella, just going along with life.

100% Jackson couldn't plan his way out of a paper bag, hence why he's never been able to replicate his Q3 GF form. It's not that hard. Jump high, spread fast, handball with accuracy. That's it. Do that for 15 years and you're a multi-multi-millionaire.

Bah … humbug … Melbourne is sabotaging the Freo deathride by destroying North Melbourne. How can we expect them to finish ahead of the Dockers after tonight?

Hopefully we beat Freo by 110 

West Coast have the spoon in the bag for mine. They are putrid and they don’t care.

Build the great man a statue outside of our new complex in Caufield.

I'll even come from Adelaide to unveil it to the masses.

I like this. This is one of the more reasonable posters over in purple land on Bigfooty. 
 

 

Melbourne laughing at us. Langdon for peanuts now Jackson for 2 firsts (one looking low!) plus they had some more laughs when they saw it meant we couldn’t afford Acres and Logue and even more laughs when they got a better player in Grundy on the cheap with Collingwood paying a big chunk of his salary. 

Carlton also laughing as they took Cerra and Acres, latter cheap as chips. Forced us to pay high for Henry. Left us with a young undeveloped kid from the draft in exchange for Cerra. In doing so weakened a club that was expected to challenge for a flag at the same time as them. Kudos. 

Well done Belly. You made us worse and strengthened our competitors. 

This from a guy who was drafted by Freo for free on inception, cut, went on to win a flag at North, came back at the cost of picks 6, 8, 37 and Jess Sinclair. The irony is mind blowing. How much can one man cost a club!!!

 

 

(plus Hogan for pick 6 that became Ben King)

Hawks are better than Freo I reckon! 

Jury is out on that one. I just want them to finish down  the ladder, they won’t finish last or second last if we could get pick four through six I would be delighted. Getting the picks we get for Jackson and getting The Bun will have been a great result. Our selection / negotiating team have done a great job again.

He's right, the irony is delicious.

He’s not wrong. Peter bell has been a disaster for freo.

B:       Logue

HB:   

C:        Acres                     Langdon

HF:     Tucker     Hogan      Hill

F:                        Lobb  

FOLL:     Meek     Neale   Cerra

That's all just in Bell's time, so Weller and Crozier don't make it in. They weren't always screwed on the trade value, but then somehow managed to ruin it for themselves each time (Epic example Lachie Neale for 6 and 19 which became Hogan and Lobb) while also playing such pigheaded 'hardball' on the trades that they've ruined their relationship with several other clubs.

They tried to trade in a rising star winner and premiership-winning ruckman-midfielder-forward unicorn projected to be one of the most potent players in the league, for, they believed, two picks in the mid teens and one in the 30s.

Instead they now have a pretty handy young ruck, for whom they traded picks 5, 13, and 23.

So we hate them for trying to screw us over and we mock them for falling on their faces doing it.

DEATH RIDE!

They are tanking. They will make sure they don’t win that game.

The Harley Reid slow bicycle race is going to be an interesting sub-plot to the season. North were horrible last night and the Eagles are beyond putrid. Hawks have some stiff competition in the tanking stakes.

    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

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
