  1. Mcrae & Bont > Trac and Oliver. And have a cup to prove it.
  2. He was a good player for Freo. His 2019 was very good in fact. He was about explode towards the end of that season. I thought his 2020 was a step backwards for him but the whole 2020 year was a nightmare for many players. His improved kicking and the consistent impact on games this year has taken him to the level he looked like he was close too at the dockers.
  3. Josh Kennedy kick 11 from his first 21 games. Way too early to make calls on a talented 19 year old. Give him time.
  4. I agree, it would destroy the already shaky spirit and hope of many of us. No flags or anything really resembling success is one thing. Seeing our exciting players running around for another the team is a bridge too far for me.
  5. This is spot on, If we fail to make finals and Oliver leaves us for one of the big clubs it would be the final nail in the melbourne supporting coffin for me, and I wouldn't be the only one.
  6. He has absolutely no chance whatsoever. Rance was the premier backman in the AFL for years and only polled 31 brownlow votes total.
  7. Has made a few blues, but he is yet to debut at AFL level and he is improving as the game goes on. He is also up against arguably the best midfield in the AFL. Simpleton comment.
  8. Looks fine, still doing as he pleases out there. Such a gun.
  9. Sadly I feel you have dug your own grave here mate. I personally like the info you have shared with us but perhaps your wording should have been a bit different. Big difference between "I am very confident he is coming" and "Smith will 100 percent be a demon" People on here can be very harsh on posters who share info that doesn't come to fruition. Anywho, I hope this doesn't deter you from sharing info you may receive.
  10. Speak for yourself. Id love him back if we gave up peanuts to Freo.
  11. The Dogs list is unquestionably superior to ours. Much more balanced team. They have us covered for talent and on almost every line they either break even with them or are outright better. They also have the heart and grit that we lack and desperately need to find.
  12. There is absolutely nothing in it.
  13. Who cares, winning this award this year is as impressive and meaningful as being the tallest kid at kindergarten.
  14. I turned off early, What did he say? Never mind, just read the others summaries.
  15. The Spargo haters looking like absolute muppets now....
  16. I have been meaning to start a similar thread (The Toby Green Model) for a few weeks now. I agree with you almost completely. I feel we should have a look at doing "A Toby Green" with Jack. Years ago, before the GWS midfield became super stacked, Green was there best young mid by far. Racking it up in a team get smashed week in week out. Over time they acculimalted a gluttony of elite mids and they were forced to adjust. Just like we are now. Over the course of a few seasons Green went from one of GWSs excess mids to a AA level small/mid sized forward. Green still attendants center bounces and rotates through the midfield but his core role is a goal kicking, hard edged competitive forward. I cant see a reason why Jack cannot emulate a similar reinvention of himself as a player. His set shot goal kicking is actually very good, hes ability to bust tackles and snap the ball is also elite. He break tackles from guys much much larger than him, so the small defenders are going to have a real rough time lining up against him and holding him down. The biggest weakness or attribute he is missing is the ability to compete overhead. Moving jack forward for the majority of game time allows Gus to play his natural role and Oliver/Trac can all rotate with Jack when ever they need a rest or we need to mix it up in the center. This of course may all fall in a heap if jack is unable to perform up forward however I don't see a downside of giving it a crack for the rest of this year to see if we can't improve overall as a team. I'm not saying Jack will become as good a forward as Green but I can see him kicking 30-40 goals a year and also extended his playing career much longer. Additionally to Viney going forward I would push Tmac back to CHB were he can find form and releases Lever to roam a bit more. I feel Tmac is a much better defender then Tommo who should be running up and down the wing as we recruited him to . My best hypothetical 22 would be: Lever - May - Rivers Hibberd - Tmac - Salem Langdon - Oliver - Tommo Fritch - Jackson - Melk Pickett - Wied - Viney Gawn - Gus - Petracca INT - Harmes - Hannan - Spargo - Sparrow I feel this straightens us up and really allows the players to play roles they are suited for.
  17. I agree mate, he had a good game and is a possibility to play round 1 IMO. Not huge numbers but was noticeably clean out there tonight. The hate this kid gets on here is ridiculous, the kids a 20 year old ffs.
  18. Im starting to think you're not a fan of oscar.....
  19. That is extremely optimistic. I hope you are right!
  20. I read somewhere last night the Lions were very keen on him.
  21. Once he got past GWS's first pick at 4 it made no difference when he went.
  22. Yeah, I'm not sold on the idea of picking him up either, just pointing out to that his output isn't as terrible as some have suggested . Some of the remarks about him in this thread have been outrageous.
