  1. OMG then he will miss out on the joys of AFLXCREMENT! (Tommy's toe is also probably a bit sore)

  2. It always disappoints me to see people turn on a player as many here have but I suppose for someone we placed so much hope in and then disappointed us it's an understandable if regrettable reaction. I was one who supported him when he was with us but I'm pleased we traded him. But lets put this Hawthorn business to bed. If Watts had been recruited to Hawthorn he would have been in one of the best cultures the AFL has produced coached by one of the best coaches and captained by one of the best captains. He wouldn't have turned into the player he now is. He wouldn't have had the hopes of a team resting on the shoulders of a teenager. He would have been developed properly and when he came into the team he would have been surrounded by mature players and played in a winning culture playing an appropriate role with appropriate expectations. And if you want an example of Clarkson understanding players strengths and coaching to them just look at Brad Hill. Soft as butter but Clarkson used is attributes. He would have done the same with Watts. For all Watts is being criticised now he played some really good footy for us. He was loyal when he probably shouldn't have been and I'd contend his dumping by us now means he finds footy without his mates just plain boring. Footy has been pretty cruel to Watts. When Watts played his 100th game the AFL media department put on a video of his worst moments. When have they ever done that before for any other player? He has been the subject of more media attention than just about any other player in my memory. He's done some dumb things no doubt and he's soft by AFL standards but he's probably a better human being than many other players and many here who are spitting bile at him. It's time for people to move on and just accepting Jack for the person he is. Sadly it won't happen.

  5. Easiest way is to not click on the thread. Another useful tip is to purchase a mouse with a scroll wheel. May I ask why this bothers you? Not the concept of this competition but how is this thread such an annoyance that it would compel you to make such a statement rather than just manually ignore the thread? It's just a line on a screen in an index on Demonland and not flooding your timeline on Facebook or Twitter.

  9. Some of those odds came in a bit. I managed to get 22 boosted. I know you can put a quinella in a parlay on the TAB. Thats the only time ive seen it. Cant d that with ladbrokes anyway, im assuming ditto with the other corporates.

  10. Yeah I was thinking of putting up a 3/5 exacta ($12) as I've been doing quite well with that type of exotic bet in the racing off-season. Can one multi up an exacta with win bets Wadda? But I am doing a 'Deeza' and will be putting on a box6 F4 in the CF Orr Stakes ... only issue is that I narrowed it down to 8 choices then PL (in advance) kicked in! Anyway, I'm on with our 3 choices so good luck everyone!

  12. Best Bets: Caulfield Race 2 No 3. Crack The Code $2.40 Caulfield Race 7 No 4 Social Spin $3.80 Caulfield Race 9 No 4 Avilius $3.00 Those 3 fabulous choices in a win multi get you around 27/1.... (providing they win) Good luck punters !

  13. Its a pretty hard week with all these horses changing stables and 2 yo races. Plus im on a hatrick, so no pressure ! Best Bet: Race 7 No 4 Social Spin $3.80 Ps i was going to quinella Voodoo Lad /Nature Strip cause the others wont get near them. I also think Voodoo might win in which case the quinella will pay ok. But, because of multi punting restrictions on-line, i will go with the above selection.

  15. I'm in the stuff 'em without Gawn camp too. Would be inclined to see Preuss have a shot at Cox's mobility whilst seeing just how fit Preuss is. Would they be playing both their bigs...not sure

  16. I think most TAC clubs can have a couple of overages but because Bradtke is also on an AFL list he'd probably need permission from the AFL as well. So both would be the answer is my guess. Will give us a great chance to see how he compete's with guys around his own age given he missed all the underage years. Should hopefully fast track him as a player or conversely mean the club gets a quicker idea if he's worth persisting with.

  21. Watts had his only decent finish in the Melbourne B&F in 2016, coming 5th. His speech was embarrassing "I'm usually down there drinking free [censored], I should try harder" to paraphrase. Comes back for the start of 2017 and is promptly dropped from the JLT games due to skin folds/attitude/work rate - take your pick. At season end Goodwin says 'get rid of this bloke'. Finishes his first year at Port in 21st place in their B & F. Lurid text messages are posted late in 2018 and now this stupid video. He has talent but no desire. It's pretty common. Those here that were railing against Watts going (@bobby_mackenzie etc) look pretty stupid now. Watts is a waste of space as a footballer. A ripping bloke from all reports but frankly who cares. I am glad the Dees made the hard call. It was always the right thing to do.

  28. Port are in trouble this year...bad start will again be the cause. Loss of confidence in the coach will be another cause. Everyone I talk to about footy considers the Dees to be the team to beat this year - almost all are assured of a Demon GF play-off with a solid win going to the RednBlues.

  29. As for the video, whether or not the substance was illegal, he is a complete and utter idiot firstly for doing that, and secondly for allowing it to be filmed. Why you would risk getting this type of publicity has me completely stumped. He’s not stupid, he must have known this might happen (whether it is warranted or not), especially after last time.

  31. That's ok, let him fly under the radar a bit so we don't need to pay overs with draft pick points etc when we bit for him. Maybe he could play for that mob at Tambellup for a bit - I heard there was a pretty good player from there once!

  36. Yes. Comments on an internet fan forum have a direct correlation to how the team will perform. The players probably look to DL to gauge how confident they should be and we therefore have a great responsibility of ensuring we never get excited or portray any sort of confidence whatsoever in the boys. Thanks for handing us a round 1 loss with your irresponsible comments @Ethan Tremblay. Calm down and stop trying to be everyone's dad Sydee, we are allowed to be excited and expect greatness this year. Enjoy the ride, or at the very least, allow others to be excited if you insist on being a wet blanket.

  38. Getting tired of this same old re-hash. The guy has talent but never the mindset of an elite AFL footballer. Not once or twice this has been shown but over and over and a lot of people including myself chose to ignore it for a long time. I’m constantly having opposition fans tell me rubbish like “I heard somewhere if Watts had gone to Hawthorn he would have been one of the AFL’s best players” and “It wasn’t Watts’ fault, he went to a basket case of a club” turn it up. Some of it is true to an extent but doesn’t hold any water when explaining the guy’s entire career.

  40. I largely agree with this. Boyd is rubbish, Patton has done nothing, and McCartin has done less than 'tip toes'. I disagree re Kreuzer. While he is a battler, he's at least had a top 3 B&F finish and made the AA squad of 40. He's demonstrably been better than Watts. More importantly, he has courage in the air.

  43. Apparently at least 100 of the 250 horses (in work) have been relocated from the Ballarat stables ... and the top 50 have gone to the top 4 trainers according to one local trainer. But above all, it's just a very sad situation all round. And unless the operation is restructured with new trainers from the outside, the staff are going to be out of work. As it stands, it's business as usual but that will almost certainly all change in 24 hours. Read more here ... Ballarat mood changes after Steward raids

  44. TBH I am struggling to justify a spot for Lewis - but can you drop a guy with his status, is he untouchable? I feel like last year he played the backline sweeper, stepping in for Lever, but I'm not sure of his role given he's not the quickest mover.

  45. My grandfather played for the Dee’s in the 50’s and 60’s, he was diagnosed with cancer during the week. Success means so much to all of us supporters, but here’s hoping for him he can see us in one last GF.
