  1. Is his dad 199 cms? Did he play footy at a high level?
  2. Looking at their ins and outs, that is not a given. Lobb is a big loss, as is Mundy and Acres had his best season in 2022 as did Logue. Tucker was used in 14 games also. It will be very interesting to see how they go in 2023.
  3. Maybe Saints wanted to see him training. He will probably be added as supplemental player.
  4. The great comment from JT was that we don’t expect the draftees to play early, but rather to just develop their games. That is just so different to the old Melbourne, where we would say that hopefully draftees would play some games next year.
  5. Couldn’t agree more. Draft badly and win the flag and suddenly the bad draft was a brilliant one. Evaluating a draft is just ridiculous and even Shifter Sheahan says every player drafted is great and a potential star. Really?
  6. I detect a good sense of humour in his mum. See the Bistro sign on the kitchen window.
  7. Yes and that still leaves 36 goals in 6 games which is also impressive.
  8. Is he our Brayden George compo? An inside mid kicking 60 goals in 7 games is pretty impressive.
  9. No, we won’t use our last 2 picks because we only have one rookie spot after tonight. Keeping Hibbo and Melk limited our picks this year, but probably makes things easier next draft season.
  10. No reason to expect that. Pick 37 is like 2 new players for each club. You are not saying the 2nd new kid for each club, each year, will never make it, are you. Max was a pick in the 30’s and Tom Mac 54 and James MacDonald was a rookie as was Flash and the list goes on and on.
  11. So you agree with me. Make Bombers pay and lose 22. I don’t think we would want Davey at all given other targets.
  12. Good thing would be for Giants to nominate Alwyn Davey and make Bombers match and then trade the pick to us.
  13. Well, if we want a George or Barnett, we have to get a higher pick and if we can’t, at least we will go into the 2023 draft with a good hand. If we retain 37, Phoenix Foster has been mentioned. Do you see his type as our aim, given Jefferson being taken, or do you see us just going best available, no matter the type of player?
  14. Agree. It just keeps happening for them.
  15. Still might try and get a GWS pick.
  16. Surely if Bombers are going to deal 4, they do it with Gold Coast for 5 and a future pick, which means Bombers probably get their player anyway and pick up a bonus for next year, while allowing Suns to stop another club taking their preferred player. That would be the biggest win for the Bombers.
  17. I posted earlier that JT had confused me. Phillipou, Humphrey, Allan, Jefferson, Ginbey, George, Barnett. I haven’t got a clue now who our target is. Well done JT and Tim Lamb.
