    Western Bulldogs emerge as top suitor for Adelaide Crows defender Jake Lever



    Looks like we are into him big time. 850K is a hefty sum though.

    THE Western Bulldogs are emerging as serious contenders for the services of uncontracted Crows defender Jake Lever amid reports they are prepared to pay up to $850,000 a season.

    Lever, 21, and his manager Ned Guy have been in negotiations with the Crows over his next move but Lever has always maintained he’s not in a rush to decide on his future.

    The Advertiser understands there are several clubs in Melbourne — where he is from — who are keen on his signature and now the Bulldogs are understood to have put a long-term plan in front of him to consider.

    The 195cm defender comes from Romsey in Melbourne’s north and the figures being bantered around are staggering for such a young player.

    But he is a leader in intercept marks, has a good leap and is in among the best in the business.

    He is similar to Richmond star Alex Rance in the way he can impose himself on games.

    The race to secure Lever, alongside fellow uncontracted team-mate Mitch McGovern, heated up once the collective bargaining agreement between the AFL and the AFL players’ union was sorted out and clubs had a better picture of what they could spend.

    He is seen as an ideal fit among an ageing backline at Whitten Oval.

    The Dogs are understood to be ready to offer him a long-term deal for his services in the vein of the agreement they struck with ex-Greater Western Sydney forward/ruckman Tom Boyd.

    Yep. Trade our top 10 pick and something else, so then they get Gibbs. Carlton can go get more GWS players. Everyone wins.
    Everything. Okay! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog.

    When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out.

    But the worst thing I ever done -- I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa -- and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

    We kicked to him all night, clearly he's not coming to our team next year.

    Super talent
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    I'd like him but we've made far worse look better.
    Luke Vogels would've won a Brownlow if he'd played 22 games against us, as would Majak Daw!

    Technically Majak Daw would win the Coleman but I see your point.

    I hold this letter in my hand
    A plea, a petition, a kind of prayer
    I hope it does as I have planned
    Losing her again is more than I can bear
    I kiss the cold, white envelope
    I press my lips against her name
    Two hundred words. We live in hope
    The sky hangs heavy with rain
