  1. In what way? He hardly won a contested ball the whole video. I saw Spargo myself.
  2. It's not based on form, more that they think not as many draft picks will be used this year and some players that didn't get the chance to show their improvement as a top ager this year will be in next years crop along with the normal talent pool.
  3. Not a chance. Given the bulldogs picks would just get eaten up by a bid at pick 1 this would never work. I highly doubt we were expecting that.
  4. No one has done that (as Brown has never won the Coleman). People have questioned the recruitment of Brown who kicked 8 goals in 9 games this season and takes considerable salary cap space. As long as we are offloading McDonald I am happy enough with a deal for a second rounder.
  5. Think you've got the wrong guy. He was pick #12 in the rookie draft when he was redrafted. He was a speculative tall when drafted at pick 47.
  6. I watched his 2019 highlights on YouTube and was very unimpressed with the amount of soft free kicks he got. When you consider the umpires put the whistle away in the finals it's not the way you want to be getting them.
  7. Darcy Moore thinks he's Sam Frost tonight
  8. You realise he can't run? Won't be happening this pre season.
  9. That does not confirm it was before the incident like @redleg was implying. @McQueen
  10. That was shocking, incredibly dangerous and Cotchin always seems to get away with it.
  11. I think every team involved would be upset with that trade.
  12. Well if he is not getting a game, clearly the stats are wrong or you have left out some of the more valuable ones. Not sure what metric you have used to consider him elite in marking? The number of marks from chip kicks in the backline? He laid 7 tackles all year playing as a backman and didn't take a contested mark.
  13. I think the more likely thing is he realised there is no interest in him. Glad to hear they have acknowledged this was an issue and fingers crossed he can resemble something close to the 2018 version of himself.
  14. I will use a simple example of why it isn't that simple. Last year we took Tomlinson (because Mahoney couldn't tell after his first 140 games at AFL level he is not a wingman) and this year we take Smith. Those two players then hypothetically cost us the chance to get Zach Merrett as a free agent for the same price tag. It's not as simple as will it improve you and never is, it is a question of what will give you the most improvement. I don't have any faith in our list management team.
  15. Simplistic. Would he makes us a premiership threat next year? If not, is he taking away the chance for our team to develop with a player that would going forward?
  16. A pretty clear reason he has been left out. Not the kind of player you want at half back. Players that think they have elite skills when they don't are the most dangerous players to have in your team. Hope we don't go near him.
  17. He has been underwhelming this far at AFL level. Do like his movement and seems to have decent speed but his kicking appears to be quite loopy. Preuss and 22 would be big overs and I would be surprised if we are interested given we could have forced their hand last year prior to the draft with the Tom Green situation.
  18. That doesn't make any sense. We would not have had the option of taking Rivers without trading the pick for Serong. You are getting confused. You are talking about keeping our 2020 first rounder which means we still would not have Serong.
  19. I would like to see him tried at half back.
  20. I think Tomlinson delivered what most of us expected. Was not excited about his recruitment in the slightest. Played alright when moved down back but just like Lever, was a poor list management move.
  21. Was a junk piece of reporting which he will not be held accountable for.
  22. I understand what you are saying but at the end of the day if Mitch Brown is playing for us, we aren't threatening anyone in the finals. It is hard to see on camera but I noticed multiple times that he was clogging up leading lanes in the forward 50. It is interesting how poorly Weideman played when Brown was in the team. McDonald's drop in form has hurt us more than any other factor.
  23. Won't get a point if he doesn't get closer. I was using Tmac as an example because he is also poor at it. Mitch Brown had 0 on the weekend. https://www.afl.com.au/news/85207/how-a-new-don-became-the-leagues-pressure-king
