  1. He was also highly rated by our recruiters in his draft year due to his high leadership qualities. Would be a great pick up for Casey.
  2. Well there you go.. here I am thinking all this time it was called Princess Park 😅
  3. Back in my TAC Cup/VFL days I had the pleasure of playing on ground's like Optus Oval (Princess Park), Whitten Oval and Victoria Park and Waverley. Then there's a couple of current VFL grounds as well like Port Melbourne and Sandringham which are just amazing to play on in terms of surface. Out of all the grounds my favourite was Princess Park. It's still like a mini stadium compared to the other grounds and the surface is a lot softer compared to Vic Park which I found ground to be quiet hard. Wish they brought back Princess Park into the AFL for official games. I like the heritage old school feel about it and its a ground that's still rich in history. You get a decent enough crowd and the atmosphere is pretty exciting.
  4. Yeah. My initial answer was to your question. That's why I'm pretty sure the doggies didn't go into 2017 flag favourites. Someone has already mentioned that GWS may have been tipped as flag favourites that year instead.
  5. Well Yeah? I know this already. Who's making comparisons between our 2021 year and doggies 2016? I certainly wasn't. Our 2021 has been one of the best premiership team seasons probably since Geelong 2007 when they only lost 3 games for the year. My answer though was in relation to clubs who have been reigning premiers, but may not have gone into the following year being flag favourites automatically.
  6. Not sure if the doggies were exactly flag favourites going into 2017.
  7. May be best to call the club mate? They should be able to tell which training day are closed sessions (usually Wednesday?), and which are open. @picket fence might also be able to assist as well as he is now a handy regular down at Casey.
  8. Thanks Durango.. Without wanting to state the obvious it didn’t help anyone’s cause at all. We we all affected in some way.
  9. Just saw it on another platform. Incredibly sad.
  10. Surprise there has been no talk of potentially extending the list numbers for this year alone. There is no doubt Covid will ravage through AFL clubs meaning that there will be at times up to 10 players unavailable from covid alone. This is even taking into account the extra injured players on top of that. My covid-19 plan would for the clubs this year alone: Extend the list numbers to allow an extra 10 players onto the playing list. Invite train on players as early as end of January with a deadline by 1st week of March to have your list completed by then just in time for the season. Also gives potential train on players opportunity to impress for a month, and even play some NAB challenge/practice games No draft scenario, more like a SSP design in terms of recruiting. My only concern in this though is the salary cap situation. Obviously with cost cuts still hitting clubs this plan may not be feasible.
  11. Ben Brown didn’t play the brand of footy the club wanted when we recruited him. At North, Brown was just a a stay at home forward who barely moved outside the 50. This year Brown spent more time playing higher up and even he’s been on record stating he had to change his style to fit into the team structure. Just because Dunstan may not play the brand we want as a club doesn’t mean he can’t change to suit our structure. The club have already said he brings a lot of strengths to the team and is a ‘cultural fit’. I think I’ll put my faith in the coaching staff that’s just delivered a flag in 57 years..
  12. I remember that. Josh Mahoney is another who got nothing either. Seems like only the players get special treatment.
  13. Grand final form does not carry into round 1 next year. Its a completely clean slate going into the new year. This was the key message that was given to Luke Dunstan by Simon Goodwin. If there is an opportunity there that a player can make us one better then the grand final team then I'm taking that over anything. That means a fully fit Jayden Hunt replaces Hibberd, and pending pre season form and injury, Dunstan could easily mount a case over Jordon, Sparrow, and potentially Harmes.
