According to Cal T. :

”Unless Roos come with a last huge offer, Eagles set to hold at 1. Could dangle a future first if Dan Curtin is still on the board”.

Wonder if he is talking about the Dees.

WC could offer their F1 progressively to Hawthorn, the Dogs, MFC, GWS, Geelong until Curtin is taken. It will become progressively more attractive.

The stupidest justification for selecting a player, yet it just keeps popping up...

It is not the justification, as no one would take a dud in the hope you could swap him.

Curtin was suggested to be as good as  Reid by some pundits.

It’s more an insurance bonus if homesickness leads him to want to return to WA.

If he is available at our pick I would think we probably take him and swapping him later with Reid would not enter into the drafting discussion.

The Eagles will offer it for every spot that Curtin is available, but I’m not convinced we take it. Especially not straight up.

That said, if there’s no one left that we rate in the elite crop we have a choice to make between:

1. Moving back the prized part of the Jackson trade back one year further 

2. Taking Curtin who seems to be increasing his flight risk level to a fairly high level, which means he could be gone inside 3 years. Could all be rubbish, but the player manager played his cards strongly. 

Im always of the belief you draft interstate talent unless you think it’s inevitable. Curtin could be flirting with it. Only those with inside knowledge would know.

I’m hoping JT and Co have someone else in the top bracket they want instead and take the pick.

Curtin’s manager said he has talked to the Dees, and that they said they would take him at 6, if he’s still there.

Skip ahead to about 10.30 in.

That's potentially pick 1 and 2 in next year's draft. You'd have to look at it

WC 2024 first rounder is 95% to be either pick 1 or 2. most likely 1.

Suns, Freo, Hawks, bombers will all improve

You may well turn out to be right. The wildcard is what Free Agency compo picks get dealt out by AFL House.

    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

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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
