Re: 2018 Victorian State Election

Latest polling has Labor up 54-46 2PP...which would see the. Increase their majority over the LNP, even if they do lose a couple of inner city seats to the Greens which they are a chance to.

Re: Picks 34, 66, 84

At Pick 34...we should take the next Josh Kelly

At Pick 66....we should take the next Max Gawn, although I would accept the next Brodie Grundy

At Pick 84...I guess I would accept the next Marcus Bontempelli.

Not to put any pressure, or anything on you Disco.

Re: Who do we want?

Dea is f****** stiff. This years most courageous player. Played well in the games he played. Would have thought he’d keep the likes of Ambrose and Gleeson honest. Ah well... Reckon the club reckons the likes of Ridley, Redman and Zerk-Thatcher will keeps the likes of Ambrose & Gleeson honest. Havin...

Re: Vale the Mayor of Fumbledon

In the late 90s it was Port who used to poach our players...Wanganeen, Cookatoo-Collins, Kingsley, Hardwick etc.

It has well and truly shifted to Freo now with Kepler Bradley, Solly, Mark Johnson, Gumbleton, Coyler

Re: Vale the Mayor of Fumbledon

Was it 2014 or 2015 when he played absolutely brilliant football for about the first 11 weeks of the season (clean with the ball, good disposal, used his pace to advantage) then busted his foot and missed the rest of the season. That was the best football he played for us. Goodbye Trav, all the best...

Re: DYLAN SHIEL

We paid what we had to get the deal done and don't think for a moment not getting the deal done was an option. If after nominating us over clubs offering far more cash, if we failed to land Shiel it would have been a disaster. You can rest assured that we'd never be able to get another player to nom...

Re: Fletch jnr

Max Fletcher (Dusty younger son) has just been added to the Calder Cannons summer training squad at age 15. If he was to make the team and play a significant amount of under 18 football next year as a 16 year old that would be a good sign for us.

Talk that GWS have cracked the shits for "having" accept unders for Setterfield and Scully and thus are playing hard ball with Shiel and Lobb. Well dickheads that isn't how trading works, also you essentially told Shiel and Lobb to f*** off. Also how much does the Hawks trading for Scrimshaw and Scu...

Re: Fletch jnr

Cal Twomey, who now Emma Quayle has gone to club land, is the guy I listen most to about the draft and potential draftees, has Mason Fletcher going as a rookie, if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Fletch jnr

Well seeing he missed pretty much his entire U18 year with injury, hard to see him being anymore than a late round/rookie draft pick....no idea where this talk of him being a potential 1st round pick is coming from.

Re: Fletch jnr

Missed most of the year with stress fractures in his back. If the club wants him, he will be a rookie pick I'd imagine, same goes for Matt Neagle.

Re: Skip Bin Ordered @ Tullamarine

Wasn't there a story that us an Port Adelaide were the only clubs to have have automatic pay rises written into player's contract when the CBA was completed and the Salary Cap was increased thus creating a fairly decent war chest for us.

yup two more. Why not 3 or 4?
Because by extending it a further 2, it takes him to FA, he has a couple of injury free seasons like he did last year, he can count on a big, fat, multi-year deal on much coin, either from us or someone else.

Re: Francis

Francis, Gleeson, Ridley, Redman and then with Zerk-Thatcher showing promising signs in the VFL too this year.

Makes me wonder how BJ gets another season unless Woosha thinks he can fill a role somewhere else on the ground.

The story that is appearing (if it is accurate, could just be story we are going to be fed to limit the fallout) is that it was Warner's idea and he pushed for them to do it, got Bancroft to actually do it, and Smith was aware of it, but did nothing to stop it. Reports also surfacing that there has ...

And in the aftermath we go from 0/57 to all out for 107 in the space of 19.4 overs. A collapse of 10/50, officially a worse collapse than England's 10/58 the other day.

Re: SACK SMITH

Talk that all of Renshaw, Burns and Bailey will be pulled out of the Shield Final currently underway and sent to South Africa. That would cover the loss of Bancroft, Warner and Smith, with two openers and a middle order player being sent over. Surely Maxwell has to get a look in too, particularly se...
