  1. Overall very positive signs for mine. Richmond with most of their best 22, and decent effort from both teams. -Small forwards worked well. Spargo and Chandler the standouts. Both should maintain their spots in the best 22. -TMac moving well and clunking a few contested marks. -Key position defenders did well, Lever and Gawn finding plenty of intercepts -Won the clearances and managed to turn a lot of them into clean inside 50s. Nankervis doesn't provide much of a threat to Gawn though. -Use of the corridor was pleasing. The speed of ball movement was impressive in gene
  2. Midfield has been looking very good in the contest. Much more comparable to 2018.
  3. Personally I don't want to see Petty up forward, let him settle into the role he's been training for down back. I think we harmed Joel Smith's development significantly by constantly swapping him between forward and back. I'd rather have Fritsch and M.Brown out of the goalsquare, with T.Mac and Jackson roaming between half forward and wing.
  4. Feels like a win-win to me. Next year's draft is meant to be quite strong and a future third is very much useable. Hannan is borderline best 22 for us, but will be a near lock in the Dogs' forwardline. With Bennell and Hannan out though, and Melksham getting older, I hope we target some forwards in this draft.
  5. I'd be very happy to take him on a reasonably cheap contract. We know he can fit within our forwardline, and in theory we should be more capable of addressing any issues with him compared to other clubs. Just depends if there's any bad blood between Hogan and the club.
  6. Free agency makes a lot of sense from a player perspective. I don't think it's unreasonable that a player should be able to force a move to an employer or their choice after 8/10 years. The problem is that the destination club gets the player for free. I think there should be a draft point penalty in a similar way to how father-son and zone selections work. For example if Jeremy Cameron leaves as a free agent then GWS will get compensation of pick 9. Geelong should have to pay the equivalent value in draft points, in this case 1469 points. This can be taken from their current picks, and e
  7. Would we actually get anything useful for him? I'd rather keep him as depth. If we have May, Lever and Tomlinson playing as key defenders every game, then that only leaves Smith as defensive key depth, and he's hardly even a key defender. I'd rather Petty be allowed to develop up forward, and I don't want TMac's form to get even worse by swinging him between back and forward.
  8. If we have any confidence in Bradtke's development then I'd be happy to take a third rounder for him. However I think we could possibly squeeze a late second out of GWS should they think he's their man.
  9. Weitering had a great performance in round 1 and carried that hype for an entire season. May was significantly better than him and Collins probably was too. Darcy Moore in a similar situation. Had multiple bad games through the middle of the year that the selectors are happily ignoring.
  10. Quaynor getting the nomination is a joke. Rivers and Scholl were significantly better than him this week. Also if you're looking at body of work Rivers and Quaynor have basically the same stats this season.
  11. I'm happy with the selections. It's not an inspiring lineup but the players currently out of the team were all given chances and didn't perform. Swapping all of our forwards every week doesn't help anyone, so I'm glad to see slightly more continuity.
  12. Not really. If we finish anywhere outside the 8 then our pick would likely only fall 1-4 selections. Ugle Hagan will definitely push it down 1 spot, Braeden Cambell could get a bid inside the top 10, and then possible free agency compo for Brad Crouch or Joe Daniher. The problem with this draft is the lack of exposure of the Victorian players, but this could actually be beneficial to us, as some highly talented Victorians could slide a little further down the draft.
  13. I think people's expectations are a bit too high for a first year player who went pick 12. Kossie has shown glimpses of special talent this year, but he obviously needs to be far more consistent in influencing forward contests. Whether that's by timing his crumbing, being more physical in marking contests, or getting to more tackles. He hasn't been very good over the past month, but we really should have older players performing better, pushing him out of the team.
  14. Clarkson is the dream, but realistically I think Ross would be a very smart choice. Twice he has gone to underachieving clubs and immediately shot them up to premiership contenders. Our young midfield will be around for some time, but the likes of Gawn and May don't have forever. We can't hire a new coach and wait multiple years to become contenders. We need someone who can maximise this current group now.
  15. Goodwin apparently thinks it's a good experience to lose a must win game. Has he forgotten the end to the 2016 and 2017 seasons?
