  1. Dees were able to 'fix' their issues at clearance but other elements of their game have dropped off which they can look to address at the selection table. We lost the turnover points allowed/conceded which I believe we were previously no.1 with post clearance contests and intercepts. Salem was a very noticeable out with our backline lacking the link up as well as a good distributor sweeping past the clearance to distribute on the outside. The other area of concern was the ease at which the Crows i50 where they were given time and space to pick out mismatches and hit players on the l
  2. Why wouldn't they use the north game to try something a little different: Out: Jones and Melksham In: Ben Brown and Weideman Brayshaw shifts forward, TMac shifts to the wing, and Jackson shifts to an athletic 'medium' role instead that Melksham had. Should have no impact on our pressure stats should BB and Weid have the same hunger to tackle as we have seen with the rest of the team.
  3. If you want consistent performances you need to have a relatively consistent side. Should be making 2 changes "tops". Swinging 4 changes is not a good way to provide consistency and start building cohesion. I would move Jones to be the Sub, which I think could be a role where he excels in unless there is a specific player that is underdone. In Viney (if fit), Out Jones (Sub)
  4. Fixed, thanks membership team!!
  5. I bought the 3 game membership this afternoon (on the fence this year) and similar to 'the Lobster Effect' I was not sent nor when logging into the member page, as you described perfectly above, I have a blank page under 'membership type' and 'barcode'. Is the membership barcode sent on a delayed basis? Sent an email to membership department but hoping for a response in time to reserve a seat through Ticketek. Purchase confirmation came through no worries though. Thanks 🙏
  6. I have a feeling that TMac will be an option only if Jeremy Cameron deal is done to Geelong. Essendon and others don't want to lock away salary space if there is still a possibility to snare JC in the preseason draft. My gut feeling is he has a chance to move if that JC deal goes through in the early afternoon. I believe he has already toured the facilities at a few clubs and so it could be one deal that happens last minute. Dedoro will have a statue built of him if he is able to bring in an early draft pick, dunkley, caldwell and cameron.
  7. @Lucifer's HeroYou are the resident expert on list matters...
  8. Agreed especially when Mahoney publically stated that it they weren't looking at a first round pick, that would include giving up the value of a first round pick. Initial information from North Melbourne was that they wanted the then pick 23 for Brown. We might be manoeuvring to find another way to provide the equivalent value of that pick without giving it up. It would be very disappointing having been told that first round compensation was not on the table to then give up mid first round value. Say what you will about Mahoney but he is a pretty straight shooter, would be surprised if th
  9. Dees seem to be the most strategic making decisions based off the delay between the AFL and AFLPA arrangement. The list size change looks like it will be minimal this year 38 senior and 44 in total including category B rookies. It would seem there will be further list reductions next year which could mean that there will be less players picked up next year in the draft as well. This would help explain why there were so many players brought back on 1-2 year deals. We keep a lot of flexibility next year to take advantage with both salary and list space flexibility.
  10. Dees want to keep pick 26. The swap that would make sense is Dees send 33 & 43 for Ben Brown and 57. This equates to pick 25 in draft points.
  11. Hi Titus, my understanding is that the former club payments are within their salary cap. In the situation you describe above, Collingwood would have $200k less in their salary cap for their actual playing list. This is not unlike Melbourne reaching an agreement with Kolodjashnij to pay out his contract, but with the added negative of taking up a spot on the roster...if another club took a flier on him we would be paying the gap in what the existing club paid and his contract. Similar situation happened when the Dees paid 15% of the Jack Watts contract as part of the deal to get pick 31 b
  12. What is Brodie Smith worth as a trade to Adelaide? Does anyone have a sense as to his realistic value? How do people see us potentially able to get Brodie, Brown and use a future pick plus players for GWS 1st round compensation pick?
  13. By signing Yze I assume that the review has finished. Now they are in the process of hiring/firing/shuffling staff in response to those findings. The Yze article and hiring would appear to say three things: 1. Goodwin will be retained for 2021 for better or worse. Yze quotes referenced working with Goody, that would give a strong indication that Goodwin will be head coach going into season 2021. 2. Yze has experience in development, kicking/skills development, Match Day Strategy and Opposition...Our performance in 2019-20 would suggest we are missing in every single one of thes
  14. If they put in strong assistants and don't perform because of Goodwin's ineptitude, then glad we have a very highly rated assistant who would be ready to take the reins. Can't make much of the review without seeing the other changes. We need Pert to come out with a detailed explanation after he finishes his review to explain why he has made the changes he has made and why he hasn't made others. I need to understand what the club sees in Goodwin who has underperformed with the list at his disposal, the list built under his guidance. Richmond and Port Adelaide were able to identify their is
  15. Hi @Demon3 are you able to paste the tweet or send out who posted it? Love to know where this is coming from. Like that the clubs keeps things close to the chest these days...but somewhat frustrating as an impatient fan demanding progress.
