I saw him kick 7 for the Lions at the Gabba the year before last - they had huge wraps on him then.  Daniher in and Fort as 2nd ruck behind Big O has kept him in the two's.

Lots of talent....opportunity and development - not sure

 

In the VFL you mean.

Done a little sleuth on Brisbane bigfooty and they don’t care about losing him. Think he’s a bit soft like Schache, though apparently he is not scared of his own shadow like Schache. Future 4th and see how he goes in a new environment.

Asked my Brisbane supporting mate who said 

  • Very good standard VFL player, decent AFL depth player at best
  • Athletic former basketballer
  • Forward who can provide relief in ruck
  • He’s def > schache

Will be a future pick as Brisbane need to start banking points for the younger Ashcroft who is tipped to be pick 1 next year 

There's another one??

no chance we are giving a second rounder for a bloke that played zero games this year despite McStay leaving and will very likely play zero games in 2024

Want to wager that DD. In what world are you living in. Who is Maxy's  back up then? 

if he was here this year he would have been either in our Semi team or as Sub instead of Schache. He like Schache can play a key position so is more versatile than Brody.

Might not be the case, unless we acquire additional later picks - trading a F2, F3 or F4 would prevent us from being able to use our F1 in any deals, to my understanding. Don’t want to hamstring ourselves & foul any potential moves. 

As a result, a move for Fullarton might be left until late in the period.

i meant if he stayed at Lions he wouldn’t play next year, hence not worth much to them

he should get a look in with us especially if we don’t trade in another ruck/fwd

All I know about him is what is what I’ve read in this thread. Appears to fit the profile of what we’re looking for. Should be a straight forward trade. Get it done quickly and move on to bigger targets.

Understand now DD. Yes if we don't get another ruck/forward in Tom will be very handy IMO. Also can play CHF or FF.

Future 4th would be preferred- then we can still trade our F1st.

6 pack of CC n Dry.  Not even going the full slab this time

 

True story - a irish international round ball football player was transferred to another club in the 80's for a tracksuit

Nothing more than someone to contest the ruck should Max get injured -   don't think he's anything more.

So we re-signed Schache for?

PSV have always had a great scouting network and being owned by Philips used to trade for some of the best young overseas talent with electrical equipment and white goods. When the original Ronaldo ended up in Eindhoven (aka The City of Light) a set of floodlights went the other way to Brazilian side Cruzeiro. 

Your tracksuit story is better though.

Why do people keep fixating on this? 

Schache is 25 yo kpf/ruck depth that has a reasonable amount of AFL experience but isn't necessarily asking for too much more. It's very hard to find. Even if he plays the year at Casey - he takes the best defender and helps them win, all of which helps our other young players develop. 

For the 1s he's a total emergency backup who can at least follow team structures and at best, could neutralise an opposition player. 

Not every player we sign or re-sign needs to be best 22 or even best 30. It takes a whole list to get this stuff done.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
