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: 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...

Didn't Zaka miss 6-8 weeks with his shoulder injury? Hard to place top 10 in a B&F missing that many games.

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. I’m trying to figure out what this is and what it means. I’m ...

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.

Re: SACK SMITH

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 ...

Re: SACK SMITH

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...

Re: R2 ESSENDON v Fremantle

Not sure if Zachy will be right for this game - concussion rules might dictate that he misses. In that case; OUT: Z. Merrett IN: D. Myers Don’t think I’d make any other changes. There are some who played poorly on Friday night, but there isn’t any VFL games to pressure them to be dropped. So Begley...

Re: R1 ESSENDON v Adelaide

Saad kept Betts goalless. Thought TBC beat Jacobs in the ruck. Thought Langford showed some signs as to why the coaches keep using him the midfield, solid game without being spectacular. Almost no input for Zerret, minimal input from Daniher but still win. Hartley and Brown played their roles in the...

Lets hope Darcy Parish can emerge from his second year blues What 2nd year blues? You realise that his output was down last year because he was playing more as a flanker than he did in his first year, because in his first year we were missing about 1/3 to 1/2 of our best 22? He moved back into more...

Re: The Politics Thread.

So if Barnaby is ineligible, he has been ineligible for the past 13 years he has sat in Parliament. If that is the case can we make him repay all the entitlements and salary he falsely collected over that time?
