Redleg (4/10)



  1. Connors guarding his reputation? Surely not!
  2. Scarlett would potentially fill the gap that Leppitsch would have. But I hope he doesn’t.
  3. Malcolm Blight at St Kilda vibes.
  4. That first game against GWS, the G was echoing with “Crikey, Jordie McKenzie’s really improved over preseason!”
  5. Surely they’re playing it at the Redback or Shepherds Bush Walkabout. Even a Slug & Lettuce.
  6. Hamling left Geelong after not being able to get a game ahead of Scarlett, Lonergan, Mackie, Taylor, etc. to go to Bulldogs for opportunity, but finding himself on the fringes behind Morris, Adams, Wood, Cordy, Roughead, et al, sneaking into the finals side as a result of injuries. In spite of his talent, heading to Freo only prolonged a career that was sure to dissipate if he stayed at the Bulldogs.
  7. CCJ through the PSD, I’d have thought. Nice little freebie for North who need the support.
  8. I love reading FoxFooty’s AFL Draft Power Rankings Top 20 intro: ”There’s a ‘fab four’ followed by a peloton of four to six players. Then you could almost throw a blanket over the next 40, such is the evenness of talent across the class.” Standard fare to get supporters of clubs without good draft hands interested, but music to my ears nonetheless. Jason Taylor & Tim Lamb - get to work panning for gold.
  9. Wouldn’t be surprised. Couldn’t see Josh Mahoney getting the role through. He’s a shrewd operator, but also has a bit of the Adrian Andersons about him.
  10. Are these things that much of a distraction though? Wouldn’t have thought so.
  11. Moves like he’s forgotten his boots & had to borrow Jordan Lewis’ concrete ones
  12. I find it incredible that Bowey wasn’t more highly rated pre-draft. I know he’s not of great stature, but he has excellent skills, excellent balance, excellent decision making and poise. He knows what he’s doing with the footy before he gets it in his hands. Like all the greats, he’s incredibly clean with the footy and his disposals are usually so quick, clean and decisive that the opposition has scant opportunity to stop it. I’m delirious that we’ve unearthed another gem and can’t wait to see how his career progresses. I really don’t think the Sam Mitchell comparison was hyperbole.
  13. Making inquiries about Ron Barassi’s availability too.
  14. Oops. Not sure why I thought T-Mac was out of contract. Maybe because Weid is. Anyway, Hibberd & Melksham should be coming out of contract soonish I’d think, and would be due for pay cuts.
