  1. None of our premiership players have retired or moved. Im told it hasnt happened before but find it hard to believe
  2. Someone told me Melbourne is the first side to go into the next season with every premiership player still available Anyone know if this is right?
  3. Yes I am sure they would rather win in rd 1 than their 3rd flag in history!
  4. The pressure on this kid from day 1 was immense. I have it on good authority that his social media feed was constantly full of girls throwing themselves at him (in the most graphic of ways), blokes doing the same, girls turning up at his house, unbelievable amounts of vitriol thrown at him etc. The lot. I don't know whether this caused an issue or whether it exacerbated a pre-existing issue but the pressure on young men generally at age 16-20 that are trying to pursue their dream of an AFL career is something that very few of us would comprehend. Clubs try to guide them but with the intense demands and regimen of AFL they are cut off from their former lives in so many ways that its such a critical medium for young people to connect. Easy to say "just turn it off" but its way harder than that. They can't go for a beer or a walk without some kind of attention. And the attention today is relentless. I wish him well
  5. Said with such authority, And so wrong
  6. Has already had quite a few midfield minutes. Has done well there, No question he is the best 22 He is 21yo built like a brick outhouse, kicks like a mule, has a good footy IQ (as evidenced by his kick to Fritsch in the 1st qtr, his one step goal on the 3rd and his sublime kick to Brown in the last) and is going to be a powerhouse for the Dees for many years..
  7. Also a great narrative for fringe players. Everyone can improve, clean slate every year, no grudges, hard work rewarded.. tmac and anb and are living proof
  8. Take Brayshaw for example. 332 votes from 25 games.averaging 13.28 votes a game from 4 coaches. Ie each coach on average gave him on average 3.32 votes out of a possible 10. Is that right. Sounds too low Oliver scored 6.7 votes on average from each coach..
  9. Anyone else failed to access the live stream? The app is pathetic
  10. And for Max his breakout game was at Kardinia Park when he took a swag of contested marks back in 2015??
  11. OK maybe he's not better. But I don't really rate Treloar. Had a good granny no doubt. But to my mind he is another accumulator that doesn't really damage teams. The Dogs are full of them. He turns the ball over a lot and thats one of the reasons the Pies were keen to jettison him. Salary cap being the other main reason of course. And addressing the original poster that talked about the depth of the Dogs midfield, I think we match them at worst but are probably better
  12. We don't have many picks thats for sure. I imagine that the harder it is to break into our team, the more trading of players we will see as players wanting more game time might seek transfers elsewhere..
  13. Bont = Petracca Oliver >Macrae Viney>Libba Langdon >Hunter Harmes > Treloar Brayshaw > Smith Gawn > Martin Jackson > English
  14. A bit loose with the truth there tiers. He was shopped around last year along with TMac. Thats how much he was appreciated. He has always had great endurance but has been very hot and cold as a player. This year he absolutely turned it on and was one of our best players. Won't surprise me to see him finish highly in the Bluey.
  15. Probably the Warwick Capper rule. He used to molest players on the way up and then take great grabs TBH I think we would all like that to stay in our game. It is absolutely unique
