Well f*** it...I`m excited

Post by desmondo » Wed Jan 16, 2019 4:06 pm

There hasn`t been too much to get 'excited' about with the Bombers lately, but reading about our next crop of father/son prospects, I can`t help it :wink:
So glad to see Tommy Hird (James` Son) training with us at the mo, and it`s exciting to see that there are two more to come in the future, Alex 14 and William 9. Can`t say they will all be as good as James was, (but half as good will do vingertje ).

It`s amazing considering the fkng saga bullshit that went down, but it will sure be good to see another Hirdy, (or two) going around.

And then there`s the two Fletcher boys, Mason and Max, and again, it will be great to see a Fletch mark2 running around in the red n black.

Other names on the f/s list to excite me are names like Wanganeen, O`Donnell, Misiti, Caracella and Daniher. The full list is below, get excited vingertje

Never thought I’d ever see anyone skinnier than Dustin Fletcher when he first started. Then comes along son Mason...

You’d think after 12 Neagle kids, one of them will actually make it?

Is Kyle Baker the son of Leon? If so, then Leon must have had him in his late 40’s. And if Kyle is just half as good as his old man, he’ll be a damn good player.
Unfortunately, you can't drown a witch!

He is listed as NGA so unfortunately I don`t think he`s Leons son, or they would say so?, I wish he was though, as you say Ben, Leon could play the game. :wink:

Ah, I didn’t see the last column. Hmmm, what does NGA even mean?

Leon was a great player. Pity it was only 86 games in red & black. He would have been one of the all time greats of the game IMO. What an impact he had in those games 😎

Not sure of the intricasies of how the NGA works, except you get to draft young kids from designated areas and train them up and I think make sure they get an education and stuff. I do know that we have the latest Rioli (Daniels brother) in our NGA programme. vingertje

I tried to listen to it a couple of times and it was cringe city. The "Silvagni interview" post getting Shiel was bloody awful.
