A ruckman is an absolute must. Would be straight up list management negligence to go in to next year with Max, Schache, Verrall and not a genuine back up ruck.

Key forward should be a must, but I’m wondering if they address it with train on players rather than making a move. Give me the 3 best delisted/state leaguers/overlooked kids and let them battle it out over summer.

The draft has always made sense for mids and runners apart from 1-2 cheap back ups if they fit just to fill the list turnover.

Need a good ruck/forward. Don’t ever want to see JVR in the centre square again ever!!

You don’t get Winx to pull a plough in the paddock.

Operation 'Get Levi'.

Who's down for it?

AFL 2022 | Gold Coast Suns' Levi Casboult on his move from Carlton | CODE  Sports

Needs one of DL's photoshoppers for your campaign, BD. And, with that 'development', perhaps in one of the women's DC Comic long-sleevers?

(Fun aside, I guess he could be a Pedersen-level contributor? Better than a nothing option if that's where the choice ends up. Injury susceptibility, though?)

Played 41 of possible 45 games for the Suns over 2022/23 so durability is in his favour. Pretty good no frills option I reckon. Good ruck chop out, too.

We would be paying $500,000 a year for 5 years for pick 4.

I still hold hopes that we can get Swans pick 11.  Without Grundy they are stuffed and there are no other elite rucks available.  Obviously a pick goes back to them.

You don't need an elite ruck. We are blessed with Gawn but a competitor like Jamar or Nankervis or McInerny would suffice. Arguably our trying to fit others around our gawn game plan has cost us in the past couple of years.

Casboult re-signed with GCS months ago. If you’re going to go to the effort of posting pictures of players you might want to first google their contract situation.

So by this reckoning Grundy and Mabior Chol are simply off discussion on this forum because they still have years left on their contracts?

Did I read Matt Flynn, the second ruck from GWS is talking to us?

Would make sense...

Read like we’ve asked but he seems a longer way down the track with WC. They’ve probably given him an indication that he’ll get a good look at more regular game time.

Especially if Williams will be deployed up forward more often than not.

Oh I’m sorry I wasn’t aware that all player contracts are unalterable and fully binding and that players are no longer allowed to leave for other clubs mid contract. That’s a new situation in the AFL I wasn’t aware of thanks for the update.

Levi Casboult.... Good lord. We need to get back to winning finals & playing in Grand Finals to stop this absurd talk. 

It’s a cut price potential option in a shallow market. Ideally I’d like Tom Lynch but you’ve got to look at alternatives. Casboult would offer more than TMac and BBB. 

Not every player in a premiership winning 22 is vying for a spot in the All Australian side. Put forward your idea/s if you’ve got something better or more interesting. Easy to pot shot, harder to come up with solutions.

Mid contract. Players who've recently re-signed aren't leaving.

Nice out of the box thinking. Even Cales brother Mitch is a discard and then premiership player. Anyway, if you were to think that Levi was the elixir for all your premiership contending ailments, at any time, you’d be deemed crazy. 
 

this thread is a great opportunity to whittle away some hours while your life is passing you by. And rather than take a pot shot, I’d rather the current incumbents than Levi. They know the system, they know their teammates and most importantly they probably won’t be playing unless there is an injury glut.

Just like an instagram influencer, this thread is brave and stunning. 🤩

Thanks for that truly shocking epiphany.

 

Didn't work, though, it seems... 😕

    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
