  1. JJ and Bedford have been better for their respective sides than Billings and Hunter have been for us. Fact!!!! JJ has been used as a tagger to great effect at Sydney. Our mids are getting decimated, and Goodwin is clueless to do anything about it.
  2. Yes, blame it on training loads. [censored].
  3. Lamb said the same garbage about Grundy and Hunter. And then we re-sign Schache. Our list management has been pathetic since we won the flag. Rehashing rejects from other clubs, and lose Bedford and JJ due to lack of game time. And when you look at Casey, there's virtually no depth.
  4. 100% agree. Gets plenty of possessions but is so slow to move the ball on. And his disposal isn't great either. Fullarton, McAdam and Hore are the only ones pressing for selection. Thanks BBB for the memories of the 2021 flag, but you are not physically capable at VFL level, let alone AFL.
  5. Wrong Brown. That's Kynan Brown. BBB 2 kicks and that's it.
  6. We should have traded Goody after the 2021 flag. Very short sighted of the board. Just kidding.
  7. Finally a voice of reason. Playing Max and Grundy wouldn't have fixed our scoring woes. So unless we paid Grundy his full contract to sit out of football for 5 years, he was always going to come up against Max at some stage this year. We have bigger issues than Max.
  8. Spot on in regards to Billings. He was good in both lead-up games, and gets the vest. Spargo walks straight in after missing both games, and does what he usually does which is SFA. Two of our better players were unheralded draftees in Howes and McVee. We decide to give up our draft capital to GC to move up a couple of places to get Tholstrup. No issue with Tholstrup, but instead of drafting some more kids, we've used list spots on Hore and Billings. Goodwin clearly doesn't rate either. Our list management has been pathetic since we won the flag.
  9. I don't live near Caulfield, but I couldn't care less how inconvenient Caulfield is for some supporters. Players will never outwardly complain about driving 1-2 hours to Casey to train, but inwardly most would hate it. By choice, I've spent the past 20 years working within a 30 minute walk from home. And I've prepared to sacrifice money to do so. Having a home base within a short distance of the CBD will be a great selling point when trying to attract players, or even player retention. Get it done.
  10. Gold Coast and GWS don't have access to Father/Son picks like every other club. Given the number of players that these clubs seem to lose due to the "go home" factor, I have no issue with the academy picks.
  11. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we traded out pick 42 which was a live pick. Maybe someone is getting upgraded from our rookie list.
  12. It would be hard to compare with so many AFL affiliated clubs in the VFL, and only 2 in the WAFL. The AFL affiliated clubs in the WAFL don't dominate, and the Eagles 2s didn't win a game this year. At VFL level, non-affiliated clubs like Werribee and Williamstown performed well this year.
  13. The same thing was said about Grundy. Every list spot is valuable, and we already have a bunch of experienced players who'll struggle to be best 22. Billings hasn't played well for 2 years. What makes you think he'll return to his best?
  14. Thought exactly the same thing. Both hold the ball well in front of them when handballing with their left. And both seem to glide across the ground.
  15. McAdam is a legitimate goal kicker with X factor. Billings recruitment is a headscratcher. Both are 28yo, so we still need to look to the future.
  16. Got an opinion from a mate involved with West Perth coaching dept. Said he's a very good player and compares him to Daniel Rich.
  17. Didn't make the trip to Melbourne for the draft because he wanted to spend it with his family. Flight risk. 😁
  18. How do we get WCE's future 1st?
  19. Only heard a snippet on Twitter in respect of visit to WA to meet Tholstrup. JT said that he's got 15 potential players at pick 11, and Tholstrup was the only one whose parents he hadn't met. He said it's important to meet at least one of the parents of potential draftees, and it was just circumstances that his visit to meet Tholstrup's parents was so recent. My take is that Tholstrup is not a lock to be taken if available at pick 11.
  20. Hopefully Harry Petty bucks that trend. With the Dees and not the Crows of course.
  21. That's fine. Then use the list spot on addressing a need, such as a mature aged ruckman.
  22. Sorry, you have no idea of the quality of the draft. We hear the same thing every year, and good players emerge from late picks and rookie picks.
  23. Hunter didn't finish in the top 10 of the BnF despite only missing 1 game. He was average. And neither did Grundy or Schache.
