Will be over soon, as WC need to decide to trade or not by 5pm this arvo...

Reckon we go for it if WC open, as our quality makes it hard for many kids to get top level exposure early in their careers... and we have flags to win.

I wouldn't open up anything Herald-Sun  even if my Fish 'n Chips were wrapped inside.

Yes, I'm old enough to remember when they did that.

I can remember my old mum taking newspapers to the Elsternwick market, in her shopping trolley, so that she might get a few shillings to buy some tripe, that I never eat these days. 
but then we did live in a paper bag in the middle of road !

Seems settled in the newspapers that the Eagles will take Reid.

Is it still a 2 year contract or did the proposal that the top draft picks get a three year contract get approved.

You have to wonder what the Eagle's retention approach will be. Cannot see that they will do much better than 14th during the next two years. No young talent coming through it seems.

Assuming he goes to a Melbourne club at the end of year 2 for say $1.5M x 6 years would the Eagles get anymore than say pick 8 and a future first

It’s three year contracts from next year onwards - so it does give the Eagles a bit more insurance

A paper bag in the middle of the road huh, fancy tripe eating pants! You rich people want to just rub it in ... we lived under tree bark in a laneway at the bottom of a hill where the rain water would pool!

It was a long time ago!

PS - reckon WC will do a deal for pick 1 on draft night.

It's 3 years and he'll be king of Perth by then. Good luck getting him back. Maybe by FA age like Chris Judd after he has a flag there.

Luxury!

We would gather the water left over from No. 31’s pooling to drink then trudge 20 miles to the tissue box we lived in … and … considered ourselves lucky.

Nigel Satyerley and property development will be their retention strategy as it was for Judd and Simpson

Sounds like we’ll need to make a “Visy Environmental Ambassador” for $500k pa type offer to get him back out!

Imo we are still a chance to get Reid.

It all depends on the certainty of Curtin getting to our pick 6.

Roos and Dogs won’t take him, as Roos are still gun shy because of JHF and apparently want Zane and Coby and Dogs have too many talls.

The Hawks are the key to a Reid deal by not taking Curtin.

Which is maybe why we’re trying to work out a deal with Hawthorn for pick 4.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
