    Re: Fixture 2022

    Also, it’s likely points in the bank. Can’t underestimate getting four points under your belt to get a season going.

    Re: Tonights picks

    It is an outstanding result. We could have easily been left with Darcy and then the last five picks of the draft. It's worth adding that we got Tim O'Brien too.

    Listening to the podcast, he sounds like a really grounded, switched on kid.

    -He had at least three clubs in contact with him

  8. Re: Delisting and Retirements - 2021

    To be fair, EVERY club uses this tactic to get around draft rules. We certainly have. The mistake they made was that they didn't do it with a player that is playing seconds and a fair way off, they...
  9. Re: Welcome Jamarra Ugle-Hagan to the Western Bulldogs

    I hope they are renegotiating his contract extension now. Get him signed while the ground is lowest. If he explodes this year Before he re-signs it will likely cost us one of our “gun” players.

    We could do a hell of a lot worse than have a look at Boyd Woodcock. Small forward with great kicking skills. I remember he was awesome in the SANFL finals in 2018 when all the talk was about...

    On the surface, getting enough points for Darcy and getting something for Lipinski feel like small victories in an otherwise pretty terrible trade period. I guess if we have a small forward and ruck...

    Giving Wallis some minutes in the VFL backline is going to do all of that? I hadn’t intended for him to take six spots across the backline at once for the whole season, but I guess it could be the...

    I don’t think he replaces anyone in the 22, but with no suitors coming for him I wouldn’t mind seeing him tried in the role at VFL level and it becomes another break glass option if needed.

    Could Wallis play a Matty Boyd role circa 2016? Are we writing him off too quickly in much the same way we did Boyd as early as probably 2013?

    On a tangent, could Edge be in line for a Hansen/Kingís role? Those of you that have seen a bit of McComb, would he someone that would be worth taking as a late/rookie pick up?

  30. Re: Port Adelaide V Western Bulldogs - 2nd Preliminary Final 2021

    Looking at the live seat view and doing some quick calculations, I think our seat allocation is about 4,000-4500 Of the 26,000. That’s enough to make some noise.
