    Do you think we would want him for purely off-field, or look to give him a year or Rookie him maybe?

    Re: AFL Game Day R13 2019

    The Crows are having a season that is like ours in many ways but almost a polar opposite in others.

    They lost the first few, we won the first few.

    They have been awful (probably worse than us)...

    So you offer him four and more money (and a new fan base that will adore him just as much).

    You're right, it's pretty darn unlikely. But who knows... more time, more money, and the lure of a new...

    Re: Proactive Poaching

    Here is one that is high risk-high reward and perhaps a bit out of left field- Nic Natanui.

    He is a retstricted free agent and apparently WC have offered him 3 years on peanuts (after he has been...
  6. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    He is the sort of player that I think we just hold onto forever because I am scared of what will happen if Collingwood get him for pick 75.
  7. Re: Our 2nd half of Season 2019 - what will happen?

    What this run home fixture does do is give us:

    1) Another shot at a few teams we should of/would have/could have beat

    2) A chance to beat up a few that we already have beaten

    3) A crack at a...

  11. Re: WB Game Day V West Coast R11 2019

    We shouldn't really fear this one as we might with a Subi game. The ground dimensions suit us being almost carbon to Marvel, the Eagles haven't been great at home, and with Gardner and a few...
  12. Re: AFL Game Day Round 10, 2019

    It’s late in the third at the G’ and it’s Melbourne 23 v GWS 75.

    Melbourne will slip below GC on percentage after this. Tanking for the mid season draft?

    I think an area that some might be overlooking is Hayes' running numbers and work rate. He certainly looks like he is doing some heavy lifting.

    Pretty surprised that the replacement wasn’t Lewis Young (with the extra flexibility of being able to switch Trengove and Young between ruck and the backline depending on how things are panning out).
