Rookie (1/10)



  1. Browne also said that Freo had all the advantage in these deals and that we want May more than Hogan... So "in his opinion" it would be pick 5 and a second rounder.... I am setting myself up for disappointment here.. We arent going to get what we want
  2. Some of you people are far too precious! Jesus - we should re-draft Morton for the way we treated him over his career.. I'm sorry, but you guys are nuts if you think JT had no idea that was going to happen.. And I am very certain he would be happy enough to be close to making the best 22!! From where he has come from that is an achievement in itself! The coaches and selection staff don't have to answer to us for the reasons they do things and for those who think it is a massive lack of respect, think about what industry we are in! Most other clubs wouldn't even have JT on their list this year. AFL life is cutthroat, and the people complaining will be the first to call for his delisting when he inevitably plays a game this year...
  3. Two problems with picking the 2 ruckman set up that I noticed far too many times last night 1 - we kicked it long to the top of the goal square most times going forward last night. Made us extremely predictable and burnt some good leads by Watts, Hogan and Weid in doing so. 2 - pressure coming out of our forward line was non existent. They ran it out with ease. Early in the game when Spencer was on the bench we locked it in for some time and had a few scoring opportunities. This may also be helped by getting Vanderbilt, Kent and Jeff back. I still don't think we can go in with 2 rucks against STK and at Etihad I'd rather play Hogan, Watts and Trac as our three marking options and leave out both Weid and Spencer. Garlo played well too I thought! Took the game on and skills were decent when he did get it
  4. Is it just me, or is this not a very strong squad?? Trengove, Bugg, ANB, Garland, Spencer & Harmes are borderline best 25 players. If these guys play round 1 I am getting a bit concerned. Harmes probably hard done by a bit there Plus playing Spencer and Gawn is all well and good if Jake can do anything other than ruck. Right now we have the best big man in the AFL and we are going to have to play him forward (where Hogan, Weideman & Watts already are) to fit this other tall in. WAAAAY too top heavy. We desperately need Garlett, Kent and Hibberd back soon!
  5. And here I was thinking the days of the 20 page Jack Watts threads were all over...... Good luck and get back Wattsy! Better than ever hopefully!
  6. Top 10 from when I remember supporting around 1999 Yze Hogan Neitz Viney White Gawn Farmer Davey Jones Robertson I think a few current players will probably start overtaking this lot fairly quickly
  7. Jetta to finally receive some external recognition Hibberd to be in AA form at the halfway mark, but fade late. Hunt continue to exhillarate, albeit with inconsistencies Vince and Jones to spend more time on flanks and the wing with Angus, Oliver and Jack taking over and playing consistently well. The package gets rebranded to TRAC People will remember just how good Jesse is Gawn to a new level.
  8. Gotta have a crack at this B: N Jetta. T McDonald, S Frost HB: J Hunt, O McDonald, M Hibberd C: B Vince, D Tyson, N Jones HF: A Brayshaw, J Hogan, D Kent F: J Garlett, J Watts, C Petracca R: M Gawn, J Lewis, J Viney I: C Salem, B Stretch, C Oliver, J Melksham
  9. Don't be ridiculous! Absolute spud. Needed to rid our list of him finally!
  10. I don't get the love for Fitzy.. He is unorthodox. Is not in our best 6 forwards, and yes that does include Dawes, and is certainly not in our best 6 backs. I would be very surprised if another team was interested in him as well. He is simply NO GOOD
  11. 1. How did you start following the Demons? The run of wins in 2000 when I was just starting to love footy.. Jumped on board 2. Who was your very first favourite player and why? Yze would be the number 1, but I loved Woey and Tingay too 3. Best moment as a fan? I think the final against St Kilda when Chopper Carroll took Gehrig to the cleaners.. Young blokes stood up that day 4. Worst moment as a fan? The Semi Final against Adelaide when we fought so hard for the lead and a McLeod led Crows ran over the top of us.. 5. Anything else you would like to share? I have a massive love/hate/hate relationship with the Dees.. I love the red and blue too much, that losses hurt so much that I can't stand the sight of us.... For seven days
  12. There is absolutely no chance he is the next Martin.. He's no good.
  13. Things I see that worry me. a) No 24 - 25 year old mids to help take that load off Angus, Trac and Viney.. Jones and Vince will have to carry a load into their early 30's. b) Frost should be a key back. This will strengthen that depth when you have McDonald, Dunn, Frost, Fitz and Oscar. Garlo is more of a flanker c) Need more mids!!! d) Besides Hogan our KF depth is weak.. We really need to draft one this year. Would love a Lloyd, Lucas / Lynch, Brown -combo
