    Jessie White played some good footy too, I still think he is comfortably an eker.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    A good eker knows when to turn it on though. Liam showed the dog just enough of the fox to eke out another two years. He can relax for 18 months now.

    Re: Ekers

    I love this thread. Thanks Rocco for launching it. There's some great reading here and some very sharp observations.

    I get the feeling his Eker status is inextricably linked with the ongoing success of Brendon Bolton and the latter's ability to keep the positive vibes and strong improvement of the Carltank Football Club trending upwards.

    Sure, one might understand a slight release of the throttle from the Jizz man post his recent extension (I can see a few binges with pre-mixed cans and terrible Australian Hip-hop involved) being awarded, but in my view he's just a few weeks of poor team performance this year, and half a year of further poor performance away from being in the gun again after some traditional idiocy and backward thinking from the Carltank board seeing Bolton dismissed.

    8 AFL seasons for 49 games with 2 clubs. Delisted twice and picked up in rookie draft twice by Essendon. 8 AFL season, 49 games.

    #5 Jonathan Giles
    10 AFL seasons, 4 clubs for 58 games. Delisted, year in state league, rookie listed and then traded twice in steak knives deals.
    I would be really interested in learning more about Daniel Currie. If any Woofers can shed some light on his career that would be great. It's s helluva achievement to be around for so long and play so few games. It's a record that will stand the test of time I think.

    I hope Daniel Curry can squeeze one more year out and not play any games. A ten year career with less than ten games would shut the door on who is the greatest eker of all time. The Federer or Ali of ekers.

    Not that dissimilar to Tom Campbell. Big lumbering ruck who can take a grab but not much else, and has durability issues. Break glass in case of emergency type, as many of the top ekers are - the 3rd best ruck on a club's list
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    I watched Rumble in the Jungle again the other day. Ali yelling abuse at Foreman and inviting him to hit him harder and pointing to his chin. What a lunatic. "Come on George. You can hit harder than an old lady can"


    I guess ekering at its very best is rope a dope. You rope some dopey football manager into giving you a contract.

    Re: Ekers

    Probably not in the same class as Daniel Currie or Josh Cowan but Aaron Black must now be mixing in Eker circles.
    Drafted back in 2009, and now close to 8 years in the system for 54 games and showing little signs of improvement.

    I thought Aaron Black would have broken through and become a bit of a player. I remember him looking impressive playing against us early in the 2014 season. Looking at his stats - he played 25 games that year including a prelim where he nearly went statless - and has then gone on to play 3 games in 2015, 0 in 2016 - and a further 4 games for Geelong this season.
    The Western Bulldogs.....shortest premiership drought in the league.

    Precisely the type of player and form-line we'd have looked at in times gone by.

    Re: Ekers

    I Still think Liam Jones will nose dive at some point.

    It's in his nature. Threatened to be the next big thing at the dogs as well don't forget, He's totally a confidence player, and we know if you let him run and jump at the ball without contact he looks great, but he can't handle it when you take that away from him.
    Pretty soon clubs will instruct a forward to just watch him and get in his way, give him a little bump and he won't know what to do because he can only run in straight lines.

    When that happens the rest of his game will fall apart as well and we'll see the real Liam Jones back again.

    I presume Liam would be on minimum wage , can't see anyone wanting him and he must feel he owes the blues for 2.5 years of nothing.
