We have the picks 

We have the goal kicking coach

Perhaps Haroldo would prefer life out of the Carlton spotlight...

The most important thing is cap space. I'm pretty sure we don't have much to lure anyone? Unless we lose some players (Jordon, Harmes, another) and find another club to take the last year of the contract of Tmac or BBB ?

Although I'm just guessing.

Did he not just sign like an 8 year contract extension until 2030?

Yep. Don’t let that get in the way of the discussion though 😜

We tried to get him and missed our chance. His contract is too big for us to take on now. We’ll need to look elsewhere or just continue to develop JVR and Jefferson.

No thanks, Choco might fix the kicking but he's not a heart surgeon. Harry looks like he's playing to preserve himself.

I think there’s only three forwards in the game that would be useful to us, Jeremy Cameron, Toby Greene and Rankine.

Not sure anyone else has the tricks to work in our stifling setup.

*on the assumption we still have Kozzie and Fritta

Curnow.

He's an absolute star forward who doesn't get enough credit especially as he is surrounded by poor individuals. 

Would happily pay him a mil a year.

Well down this year though. Bereft of confidence. His goal attempts last night were horrendous.

But he kicked 58 in 21 and 45 last year. He's a very good player and would fill a gaping hole for us. And there aren;t many options out there. Chocco will set him right.

Carlton need to shake-up their list and I reckon McKay could be sacrificed to bring in picks. He might just be gettable. 

Curnow is obviously the better player but he is ungettable. The hoards would burn down Ikon Park if he was traded.

True.

He would suit us well getting up the ground

Incredible that he simply can't kick a drop punt for a goal.

He is also dropping a lot of marks.

It’s probably just a form slump, but it does highlight the dangers of long contracts at big money, if you get them wrong, it can stuff up your list.

100%. He can be a stay at home gun, or a running Centre Half Forward. If he was in our forward line we’d win the flag for the next 5 years.

Mckay. No no no

I would be searching for a Mitch Lewis. Best young forward in the league right now (second only to Curnow imv) 

Gotta find another like him 


Lewis was drafted by Hawthorn with their second selection and seventy-sixth overall in the 2016 AFL draft.

1. Choco will fix him

2. Our midfield will provide much better delivery to him

3. Carlton will be desperate to get rid of him and will pay half his wage

4. JVR and Jefferson will take a few years to hit top gear

5. BBB and TMac clearly on the way out

All adds up to a strong YES

 

Not so sure about point 2.  
Or the second part of 3.

But yes, if the price is right and we get a sports psychologist to screen him first.  Not if he costs us players or too much cap space.

    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

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    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?
