  1. Which is exactly why i started with the line "Unless I am being told a porky" The person is a family member of his, so it's pretty reliable. Until he signs on the dotted line I guess there is always room for a cheeky bombshell to strike. We are Dees supporters though... so I guess none of us would be surprised if we were let down again ?
  2. Unless I am being told a porky, someone very close to Ben Brown has confirmed he's 100% to Dees. Bombers have offered him big big money, yet he's happy to take less to come to the Dees. Eat a ? bombers ? Also apparently he played with a floating bone in his knee most of the year which would've been a big part of his performance drop this year. Since his surgery recently, he is ready to roll. Very exciting - sounds like he should return to strong form* *as long as the Dees learn to kick inside 50 and don't bomb it over his head...
  3. Apparently Luke Parker is considering a return to Melbourne. Given our midfield stocks it probably isn't a priority, but still a very handy player: News Link
  4. So because a twitter account with 64 followers posts that we are out of the race for Lever, we now take that as gospel? Despite everybody else in the media saying we are still the heavy favourites...
  5. Sorry to drag this one up again, but has anyone else confirmed that using an iPhone/iPad to a Chromecast does actually work with the new AFL app restrictions? I just want to be sure before I go out and buy one! Thanks
  6. That might be why we are trying to trade our 2017 2nd rounder for Hibberd. Then we can keep pick 19 and 30 for this years draft along with those 3 players! Dream result
  7. Yep, and people on here were calling for his head saying he should be stripped of his captaincy and dropped to the VFL! Just the sort of culture we want to be known for... Well done Jonesy!!
  8. Dawes on the ball, he definitely has the agility for that role...
  9. From memory the new recruits spend most of the first day taking the tour and only doing light running ony. So not expecting it to be too exciting of a report unfortunately.
  10. points for telling us straight up and not making us guess through riddles!!!
  11. if you want to stream the game online go here: http://www.vipboxoc.co/sports/aussie-rules.html just close the annoying pop ups!
  12. LOVE this post! Crazy no previous coach has done this before. Attacking in a line and then teaching players to run back to defense and "holding the line", brilliant. Too often do we turn it over and the goals just leak through our midfield. Usually it's because we are down by 80 and players can't be bothered, given up & just lazy. #standbyroos
  13. the purple [censored] just slammed us again on trade radio, with his usual scatter gun calls. The guy has no idea. How can you call Cross a bad pickup when we didnt give up anything to get him?
  14. fair enough, i havent seen too much of him so i was just putting it out there. Hopefully u are right then
  15. Tyson has averaged like 14 disposals. Looks like a bit of a fail for us. Time will tell
  16. yay! that means we get more roos! All for that fingers crossed he gets a taste for it over the next 12 months, then signs on for another 20 years
  17. is he really that good for a straight swap? I havent seen too much of him, but heard good things
  18. stretch has been impressive. Great spread, gets his own ball, shown great composure, and his disposal has been pretty good. And as I write this he just kicked a goal! The guy is running hard!
  19. Swallow for me! May have been a little quiet this year, but he will be a gun no doubt!!
  20. Would LOVE chappy, our players would learn so much from him, but if he leaves I would expect he would go flag chasing
