  1. OK R & B, I see your point in that respect. Has Phillips been delisted? I suppose we could rookie him then. Have GWS indicated what they are prepared to trade for Preuss? If he's on $400K then he might earn us a nice draft pick from them.
  2. Why would we trade out a 25/6 year old in Preuss who has performed well for us only to recruit a 29 year old plodder. Preuss is under contract as well for next two years. Here's an idea - send Phillips to GWS.
  3. I couldn't agree more. Geelong came with a plan of keeping's off and it got them over the line. Goody always says that his team will play with a recognisable brand of footy focused on winning the contested ball. At the moment that brand resembles something from a Two Buck Shop.
  4. Does anybody recall the guy we planned to draft and we had invited to do his pre-season with us some years back. It was the year that we had our camp in Darwin instead of Maroochydore. He was on the camp with all the players when Melbourne found out that Port Adelaide (?) had drafted him ahead of us. I think it was the pre-season draft. Anyway he wasn't successful in his AFL career.
  5. The article on the AFL website has a picture of Sonny Walters instead of Bennell. Don't they have editors over there.
  6. I think clubs must make a minimum of three selections in the draft. With only two picks on our books at present there will be further movement. Exciting times. I trust our guys to get it right.
  7. I went too soon. Gerard Whately called it incorrectly. Boo-hoo.
  8. Woo-hoo. Gold Coast are not given No.2 pick.
  9. I suspect that the club has somehow lured Simon Godfrey back as our kicking coach. Jack has never been the type of player that hurts the opposition by foot. He rarely finds a target downfield and certainly doesn't hit the scoreboard enough. Nobody doubts his toughness or determination but until he improves his disposal or scoring ability he won't be judged as an elite player.
  10. You mean - like Melbourne supporters?
  11. Is this for real? http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-12/peter-wallace-played-for-two-years-without-an-acl/9861170 CC Jake Lever
  12. I think Mahoney is the ideal candidate. He has a very good reputation and has served us very well as FOM. If he's not given his chance at Melbourne he would be lost to us in very short time unfortunately.
  13. This kid showed he had all the moves even in his first game. unfortunately his body has taken some time to catch up to his ability. But as his size and his experience grows he will be a very very good player for us. If he has inherited even a little bit of the mongrel that his grandfather had he will be a star!
  14. I realise that 10 years service qualifies for life membership and that Trenners falls short in that respect. However perhaps a exception is made for former captain's of the club. I certainly hope so as he was a loyal servant and seemingly a champion bloke.
