  1. Ha! That's going to be your go-to quote every time you get told off, isn't it dazz? 🤣
  2. Spargypants could retrain as a jockey
  3. So according to The Age article, an academy or f/s would need to use a pick in the round a bid is placed to be matched, either current year or a future pick. Not next year, of course, because picks have already been traded. But guess what?... just in time for Kalani White in 2025 draft! Once again the goal posts are shifted and we come out losers Coll, GCS and WB must be howling with laughter at the thought of this, given their great hauls under previous rules
  4. I think we might see young Woey jnr force his way into the side more this year. Looks fit and now has the body to match. Very coachable kid too, from all accounts. Good on him
  5. Especially the current board, led by a person noted throught her career for getting big projects off the ground
  6. I think we will win the flag in 2024. But it requires a number of things, not limited to: - very good run with injuries, particularly R18 onwards - Clarry to get his act together and do what Clarry does best - McQualter to fit in seamlessly to the FD and add new insight to our forward entries and set up In the very slim chance we do not make finals, there will be some significant list changes, most notably senior coach
  7. Not to my recollection. Olympic Park came after Coll took what is now Lexus Centre. Ridiculing the work Joe Gutnik did in saving the club is almost treason. We had no finances at the time to invest in the old olympic swimming pool, the books from then show that. He stopped the merger and put in the single biggest donation the club is ever likely to see. Sure, he wasn't perfect, didnt fit the typical footy following stereotype, perhaps ran it his corperate way, which may have been required at the time. And the real estate investments he made are the reason we are now financially independent. But posters claiming to know the inner machinations of the board from that era without being on the board are just big-noting contrarians spreading hearsay. Not saying that about you Diamond Jim, btw. Just a follow on from previous comments to yours
  8. There's usually parking along Alexandra Ave and a short walk over Morrell pedestrian Bridge straight to Goshes paddock
  9. I read that the Coll Olympic oval is undergoing resurfacing, and while that happens they will, for a while, use Goshes Paddock
  10. Not very good with surveying an oval down Geelong way
  11. Like the look of him. Runs very hard, good awareness coming out of congestion, neat decision maker Needs to eat a 🥩 for breakfast, lunch and dinner and hit the gym over summer.
  12. How dare you have a differing view! I'd be wrapped if Kolt developed into the dangerous small/med goal kicking forward that we are so lacking atm. I sit at the G with someone who screams every time ANB fumbles and stuffs up an opportunity. It's quite entertaining to watch
  13. Only 3 years before Mitch Robinson 😉 How about Toby Nankervis, Mihocek, BBB, Jeremy Howe, Jimmy Webster, Liam Jones, Aaron Hall, Lachine Weller, Tarryn Thomas or Alex Pearce?
  14. Ah... but you know, if we select him, this will be the MFCSS reason he leaves to return 'home'
  15. Wild speculation in much of your assumptions. Stating it is so does not make it true. You have no more idea than any of us if KT is to be picked by us nor if he is best available at 11 (13). The only 'fact' we know is that JT has a great record of picking what we need. Have a little faith
  16. Beautiful location. Espy to Perth is a 8+ hour drive. I did it once hitchhiking in the middle of summer. Ahh... the stupidity of youth! Can see why he'd stay home for the night if his whole family couldn't get over. Sometimes we forget these are just kids, often from families that aren't flush with cash
  17. Good lord, what an ignorant post! You must be fun at parties
  18. Amazing! So clean with his hands in marking contests. Probably 25 marks shown in that clip and not one double grab, all sticky, single touch marks. Shame that he looks out of our reach
