Tom De Koning


Roost it far

Recommended Posts

Could we tempt Carlton with our 2 first rounders (really hope Freo tank from here) and a second to trade for McKay? They have holes in their list and those picks could help them address. And they could use McKays salary to pay De Koning

Yu could probably tempt them even though he is on long term contract.

Not sure he would be worth it on form though...has some pretty large flaws atm.

Definitely not playing anything close to value for the 800K figure he is reportedly getting.

Major headache for Carlton. They have been an interesting watch.

They all have flaws.

We're in dire need of a FPF and there aren't many out there. 

Ben King perhaps. But he has his flaws too.

Is this the De Koning that Sydney are reportedly throwing huge money at for 8 years?

This is the thing, someone is likely going to overpay for De Koning due to the lack of options out there. Like the last ice cream in a milk bar on a 40 degree day.

Tom is clearly going to Sydney - really surprised if that doesnt happen now. It would take a momentous shift and pay-packet to divert his future. We don't have a lot of salary cap either so cannot see us doing much on the trade (forward) front this year.

Come on @layzie. If it was the last ice cream in the milk bar, you'd buy it for double its face value, grab a tram down Royal Parade, walk into Prince Park and tell 'em it's the last ice cream in the universe. You'd name your price and get a nine year recurring contract payment.

That seems a high price to pay for a 33 year old Ed Curnow.  

Revised offer; Love Shack 12'' maxi single and 2 packs of Smiths crisps.

Someone here who watches all of Carlton's games ... TDK has some potential and shows flashes here and there but really has not shown enough yet to warrant a big contract. Carlton will not match any huge offers (say from Sydney) because frankly he is not worth it.

As for Harry McKay, yes he currently has issues with his goal kicking but they can be worked on. His play around the ground has been quite good this season, his marking has been great, general field kicking fine, tackles and puts pressure on. He is also surprisingly fast for a tall player.

He did try a few drop punts against Collingwood last week and did kick two so he may be on his way to fixing his set shot kicking yips.

Two seasons ago when he won the Coleman he was used close to goals as a classic full forward so most of his goal kicking was from shorter ranges, he is being used differently now that Curnow is back from long term injury.

No, he isn't very good as a fwd.  he is ok as a ruck but again not that great.

we have 5 fwds that are as good as him.

Sour cream and vinegar preferably stale.

Oh I 100% would!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
