  1. Re: Always Right Match Committee Vs Carlton Round 6 2020

    Porter might be worth his chance in those conditions. I'd expect Wallis and Rhylee West would play well in the wet too.

    IIRC last time we played in a really wet game Bont was still playing dry...

    Re: Northern States player raids

    Suns were reported to have had cap problems the past two years so I'd guess that focus will be on retention. They may offload one of their more mature talls if rival offers are big (Collingwood would...

    Out - Crozier, Smith, Vandermeer, Jong
    In - La Young, Porter, Hunter, and either Weightman or Caverra

    Losing Crozier in the air I really like Lachie Young as that mid-sized option. We simply have...

    Re: The Departure Lounge 2020

    Ditto, seems a great kid and a hard worker but Rhylee West may have ended his career the way Bailey Dale has perhaps ended Fergus Greene. We have to consider list balance at the end of the year.

    Re: Living Life on the Edge - Discussion

    Handball club was "on the edge" of allowable disposal and it won is a flag.

    Hawks did it with the sheparding on the mark. It's not just about hurting the opposition physically.

    Re: The Departure Lounge 2020

    Do we have any idea what list sizes will be next year? If it is reduced we will be forced to make some hard decisions, especially if all three FS/NGA kids are draft worthy and we pick up a FA.

    In terms of "quality person" we could have hardly found a better trade target. He's actually got a lot of western suburbs in him as he has family and mates around the Williamstown area.

    He can play his best role and as mentioned elsewhere our mids set up a bit more defensively as well which means the opposition F50 entries seen a bit "higher"

    Re: Who could be the next Crozier for us?

    A little bigger and much much slower.
    Certainly not a need, which is what I'd target if we were to trade (I'm not convinced we do). We traded last year knowing we'd be hitting the draft this year.

    IIRC We can't pay them more than their mandated salary in their first two years, hence the restriction on payment in the first year of Tom Boyd's monster deal.

    A genuine wingman to partner with Hunter.

    As an aside, Lake is the only KPP in the last 30 years to win the Norm Smith. I think we can cobble together a defence as we did in 16, but the team that...
