  1. Jake Melksham must be in some red hot form on the training track Doesn't even play any footy last week and gets named 1st emergency. Kade Chandler has 29 and 5 snags and doesn't even get a nod on the Em list. Poor fella lol
  2. Yeah I got sucked in by that comment.
  3. He hasn't shown much in his career alone. Just thought they would have used him as a forward alongside Brown. All good, just means more opportunity for Bedford.
  4. Honestly thought they would have kept Weideman in to play up forward full time.. Guess not.
  5. What are you on about? 34 goals for a 19 year old in his 2nd year of AFL level is an fantastic achievement. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise. Take off your red and blue glasses off for goodness sake. The Weideman comparison is laughable to begin with.
  6. Interesting. I've watched majority of Casey games this year and I've found Moniz Wakefield has been far more impressive then Rosman and Smith.
  7. Wrong. Hawkins was 23 years of age when he kicked 62 goals in a season back in 2012. This was backing up from a near BOG performance the year before in the grand final at 22 years of age. Even in his 3rd year at AFL level Hawkins still kicked 34 goals in 2009 Hawkins was far more advanced into his career then what what Weid is at similar age. I also think the comparison to Hawkins is a bit strange considering Hawkins was far more physically developed.
  8. I stole the quote from Clint Stanaway. Either way, I think we all know Goody has told a white lie in the past. Christian Petracca playing sick against Fremantle is a prime example. He left it to Christian to make the decision on the day and it back fired. Goody contradicts himself there. In saying that, I'm glad both LJ and Gawn are playing this week.
  9. Hearing the presser I reckon Weideman stays in the team. Could be Bedford and MBrown as the outs.
  10. "We wouldn't play them if they weren't 100% fit" Well that's a lie Goody.....
  11. Still remember around draft time when it came to this selection that I thought we were about to gain a steal in Jack Carroll who I was a big wrap for. Bit deflated when we overlooked him, but quickly jumped on board in support of Rosman. It was always going to take time with Rosman and while there is certainly athletic traits there, I too question his overall footy IQ. My thinking is there they're embarking him for the role similar to Joel Smith. Someone who is tall and got genuine speed to play on both talls and smalls. Not only is speed a big asset, but he's probably the fittest player on our list. Probably the perfect prototype player to play on someone like Jeremy Cameron. I think he'll get another year on the list imo.
  12. This was two weeks ago and yet we're still training out at Casey?
  13. I made a promise to myself this year that I would stay away from game day threads... Its like a drug, you have the urge too go in and post when you've got that adrenalin hit but you know it's for the beef of your health.
  14. Yeah I know. I genuinely do love Petty down back. I've learnt this year that he's becoming hard to replace the better he gets.
  15. Good to hear that he's put on 5 kilos since he's gotten to the club. He got to the club listed at 88kg so now that takes him to 93. By round 1 next year you'd think he may be close to the 100kg mark. Physically he looks ready to go, its just a matter of keeping his form up at VFL level.
  16. Which we certainly can. Doggies won a flag with no genuine top line key forward in 2016. Richmond won a flag in 2017 with Jack Riewoldt and Josh Caddy as their two key forwards believe it or not. If Ben Brown can at least get back into some form then I think we'll be okay. Just need a chop put from Gawn/Jackson and even Weideman to step up as well.
  17. I've always been in the camp that we leave Petty down back because how valuable he is. Right now though, our forward structure is not working. Don't think shifting Petty up forward against Geelong is a good move considering he'll most likely take Cameron. I'd probably look at the move once Turner is available to play. I've lost confidence in Tomlinson after he got smashed by Sam Reid. Can only give it a go right?
  18. I got a bit bored and randomly thought of past player in Michael Newton. Thought I'd compare the numbers. Maybe we underrated Juice?
