Re: Jacob Townsend

what was his situation last season? Injuries, form or just too tough a 22 to break into?

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

“I’m hearing he is on the piss all the time” “I won’t be drawn into discussing the matter” Think you have the balls to accuse him of having a drinking problem/ not being committed to his career - then you get challenged on it, your vagina gets moist, then try to take the high road? Give us a f*****...

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

Here we go again :roll: Innuendo, supposition, speculation, derision My view is we move on and judge the guy based on his commitment to the team in the next 12 months. Let’s hope whatever his issues are he can get back on the track and start enjoying his footy again. We desperately need him to do s...

Re: Joe Daniher's Groin, Calf, Moustache, Little Pinky

I'm hearing he is on the piss all the time...not good for an elite athlete undergoing comprehensive rehabilitation. Sorry if this comes across as insensitive but there is definitely more to this situation than is being discussed. You need to listen to better sources. Come climb on Uncle Boncers kne...

Re: If You Could Choose 1 Player Only from Another Club.....

Fyfe was in the running but a little older so Cripps gets the nod That’s 3 from 3 so far. Interesting that we can all see the type of player we need but not Dodoro. We would have selected Cripps (so they say) had it not been for the draft penalties. Perhaps, but that doesn’t hide the fact that our ...

Re: Sons of Guns Say Up Your Bum

Hird’s boys were never going to be “encouraged” to aim for AFL and that makes perfect sense. Hird can segue them into an international academy with his growing presence in the soccer scene in Asia and Europe. As for Mason, I get the sense he was simply not up to scratch. I think the next Fletcher la...

If You Could Choose 1 Player Only from Another Club.....

Who would it be and why?

My choice would be - Patrick Cripps

The ideal player for our undersized midfield - contested ball beast and commanding presence

Re: Adrian Dodoro

As pointed out recently in a similar discussion, our drafting has been hit and miss at best. Since the late 2000s we can name but a handful of hits and sadly a truckload of misses The Hits, players who I consider Above Average bordering Elite have been few and far between with most being Top 10 pick...

Re: Remember The Days When...

Laycock, Bradley, Myers, Gumbleton, Shane Harvey, and James Davies...those selections derailed our squad for 10 years. I know it’s a lottery but just think if we had been super smart with our picks. The list below shows players selected after our choice. And there were many other great players we co...

Re: Remember The Days When...

I realize this is not entirely conclusive as All Australian representation does not make a player Elite...it could be that the player had a one off great year in a successful team. It’s also very subjective in its nature. Also, the numbers below are not individual players but simply the number of ti...

Re: Remember The Days When...

Yeah but we started plaing those players at age 16 so they had 5 seasons under the belt by the time they were 21. kids today have never been better prepared for the rigours of AFL...at 16 they have been playing the game for years in elite level underage comps. I just read the James Hird Academy new...

Re: Irish Influx

At this rate, Ireland will, in the not too distant future, be able to field a fully fledged AFL team in the international series....forget the stupid combined rules. Yes they would get flogged, today. But in 10 years time who knows?
