  1. Jaydon Laverde has been at Essendon for 7 years now. Whilst his stats over the years aren't great he was riddled by injury in his first four years. Even this year he suffered an ankle injury that kept him out for a few weeks & only played a total of 6 games. He has played mainly forward at Essendon, but he was originally drafted as a goalkicking midfielder. He has played 46 games & is 25 in Apr next year & is 191cm in height. In the games he has played he has shown he has ability. He would be a point of difference to our midfield & resting on a fla
  2. These are always tough decisions with older players who have given their all for the Club. When Junior was forced to retire there was a lot of angst amongst many, but they made that tough decision. I admire Nathan for his loyalty, resilience, tenaciousness & leadership. However, the question needs to be asked is he in our best 22? I think the answer is no. They intended to play him on a half forward flank, but Bayley Fritsch should be on a flank rather than be a key forward. Head v heart, but I think they should have appointed him as a development coach rather than
  3. The best teams have great midfield depth. Richmond - Cotchin, Martin, Prestia, Edwards, Bolton, Pickett, Caddy, Ross, Lambert, Graham, Stack. Geelong - Selwood, Dangerfield, Guthrie, Duncan, Steven, Ablett, Simpson, Atkins. If we look at out midfield - Oliver (midfield & forward), Viney, Petracca (midfield & forward), Brayshaw, Sparrow, Vandenberg. Harmes (contracted until 2024) is flexible as can play midfield, but also play back if required & no doubt could do a job as a pressure defensive or offensive forward. We need more inside & outside run in the mid
  4. I have been reading Demonland for many years & felt compelled to join to make a comment about Neville Jetta. He is my favourite player! Nev is a proud Nyoongar man who has had to battle his way back onto the list over the years & then to be recognised as one of the best small defenders in the AFL. Neville was in the All Australian squad in 2017 & in 2018 won the 2018 Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award. 2020 was anything but a usual year & with shortened turnarounds between games, & no VFL to display form, niggles to 'older' players disadvantaged them.
