  4. I think it's unlikely we would've been able to secure Hogan with pick 3, Toumpas with pick 4, Dawes and Barry with pick whatever (13/20) and Viney with pick 27, if Hogan was eligible to play this year. In short, the whole deal we structured was probably based, at least in part, on Hogan not playing this year. This being the case, particularly given the spectre of cheating that seems (wholly unfairly) to hang over this club, I think we should probably just accept what we willingly and knowingly signed up to a few months back. That said, I love the look of the bloke and wholly accept Ben Hur's v

  7. C&B not sure why you seem so surprised. Television is all about ratings / costs. Who the hell besides a few thousand Dees and Port supporters wants to watch a game as it turns out between both sides seconds. They finished 14th and 16th. Then add in it is being played in Renmark. Any telecaster with half a brain would not cart all their equipment to Renmark for 7- 8000 viewers. If you were running Foxtel would you?

  8. I want to see more of Kent, i think he can push for a role as a forward or a dangerous sub. Tapscott really needs to pick up his game this year.

  9. I'd love to see a win or two before the season proper starts. I'm a big beleiver in going into the start of the season with some momentum. Something we haven't done in probably a decade.

  10. Ok so the following guys have been rested from the trip to Renmark, plus I'll add in Sylvia, Frawley and stay positive that Blease can make it up for round 1, but there's still a few spots up for grabs FB: Garland Frawley ****** HB: Dunn McDonald Watts C: Toumpas Jones Grimes HF: Sylvia Dawes Byrnes FF: Howe ****** Blease Foll: Jamar McKenzie Rodan Int: Viney ***** ***** Sub: ******* Now to me it comes down to a few positional battles. Small defender: Nicholson v Strauss v Jetta v Terlich Midfield depth: M. Jones v Evans v Magner v Couch v ? Barry Small forward/Sub: Kent v Davey v

  11. Viney, Grimes, Toumpas, Trengrove, McDonald, Dawes, Clark, Jones, Watts All strike me as young men with their heads screwed on right and born leaders, each looking like developing into really good footballers, if they're not already. Dawes in particular has blown me away by being just about the most intelligent footballer I've ever had the pleasure of hearing being interviewed. Is it just me or does our long term future appear much brighter this year? Even if we're still due for some more pain in the short term...

  12. The AFL has said over and over, if we want better timeslots an TV schedules, we need to win games and draw crowds. Have we done any of that? At all? Nope. Until we start providing them with some value, the broadcasters will continue to ignore us.

  18. Well if I was an opposition coach i would be saying its game over already. get his opponent to run him into the ground, provide an extra man downfield and he will be slowly starved up forward. we have to get him back to full fitness then play him. Unfortuntely a bottom side cannot carry blokes.

  23. Posters should be aware that anyone seeking to respond to Ms. Wilson's work are liable to be attacked for being "childish" and "sexist". It's one way in which people who are too lazy (or simply unable) to respond to genuine criticism of her work deflect the real issues involved with the shoddy agenda based journalism we get from Caro these days.

  24. The game against Port in Renmark doesn't mean much to me because it is still too far away from the season proper, is played in belting heat, and the newbies, young'ns, and rookies will make up the majority of the team. We will get better measures of foot skills, sure hands, playing to instruction etc... but I can't see the game being used to assess whether we can actually win. The NAB cup round 3 game will be more important as we see which players are being genuinely considered and which players have already cemented a spot.

  25. As much as it would be great to see Hoges running around in the seniors this year, I just don't see the need in rushing him. We aren't pushing for finals, so why not let him develop his body strength and conditioning whilst playing at Casey? Everyone could see that Majak Daw had talent, but north have let him develop his game and his body in the VFL and he is now ready to explode onto the scene now. We should have learnt our lesson with what happened to Watts. Sure Hoges appears to be ready and certainly has more agro than Watts did, but he just turned 18, he is still very much a kid. I just d

  26. Yes it does, it explains it clearly. Just because you can't join the dots doesn't mean that it isn't an explanation. Honestly, your inability to take Logic Point A and Logic Point B, and mix them together to get a reasoned argument still amazes me after 8 years.

  29. I have maintained throughout that people who were once close to the club undermined it during the course of the tanking investigation. Given that it is now common knowledge that four such people (all former employees) gave their version of the "vault" to Clothier and Haddad that proposition would seem self-evident. The club's interests were undermined by the evidence they gave. That is a fact and not a smear. I am not suggesting they lied but it's clear that others gave different evidence.My information is that at a particular point in time (September/October) the enquiry was going nowhere and

  30. I agree RPFC There seems to be a united view that those who have left are the main ones who have spoken. As I have previously stated it is hard to tell lies to a professional interogator at an arranged meeting. Stories told may not have been for bitter reasons and may merely have just provided information. It is then twisted into propagander by Wilson et al. I hate the way we are eager to accuse and incite hatred to those that worked for us or served in a voluntary role on the board. Sure some arent happy but that doesnt mean they are working against us. It works against us as a club if we don

  31. In the past 5AA in South Australia have broadcast the preseason games from Adelaide but I'm not sure whether they will be broadcasting the game from Renmark. I sent 5AA a tweet but they have not responded. They did respond last year when I sent a similar tweet. If anyone else wants to tweet them the same thing then that would be great. Surely they will reply to someone if they receive enough tweets about it. Their twitter handle is @1395FIVEaa UPDATE: FIVEAA confirmed to me via Facebook that they will be broadcasting the game on Sunday via the afl.com.au website.

  38. The only concern I have is the performances and progress of those in my team, old dee. I couldn't care less how former MFC players go at opposition clubs. Just like I couldn't care for Travis Johnstone and other former players who have had little influence after leaving and only seemed to perform when it suited them, not necessarily when required or on a consistent basis. There is however one exception. Scott Thompson still burns.

  39. Anyone up for this...? We promise not to send players for early surgery, and instead, they play the entire VFL finals series. We invest around $14,700 with above-mentioned betting agency. Casey wins the flag. We pay off our $500k fine.

  43. Fowler (he's changed his surname from Salton) and Smith are tall KPP's who have some good attributes for VFL but I'm not sure as to whether they have it all together enough to go that step further. Fowler's got a great kick, Smith can take a big mark but both were hot and cold last year. Luke Tynan is the older brother of Josh and is a medium sized utility who plays hard and improved from reserves b & f to become a regular. All three really stepped up under Brett Lovett but need to continue that development this year. I know there are many knockers who criticise our relationship with the C

  44. Saw "Life of Pi" today and have to say it is pretty close to being the "perfect" film. The imagery, the story, the acting...everything about this film oozes class and has restored my faith in Ang Lee as a director. There are a couple of scenes that didn't quite work so well, but overall it struck all of the right emotional chords without being too melodramatic. Not a violent film, not an action film (although there are a couple of scenes that have you on the edge of the seat) and despite it employing a lot of generated effects, it is not even a film that strikes as being effects laden.
