    Re: Bevo: Free agent Dogs have to lift

    What is the rush on Wallis and Roughy? I'm very happy to wait until the end of the season before making a call on them - there is still half a season to run which is critical from a future list management perspective.

    Rightly or wrongly, both Wally and Rough are still fringe senior players well into their careers. Not a bad idea to take a breath.

    Agreed, on face value it looks like a decent process but with Mark Stevens words, who is normally accurate, flying in the face of Wallis being a required player it adds a bit of interest to the article.

    If Wally can't cut it as a mid in the coaches eyes what about a small forward. Mitch is smart and would put himself in good positions and would suit him if the there is congestion in the forward line digging the ball out.
    Can spend just relieving time in the centre and develop more forward as he knows how to kick a goal which we lack.
    “But, the places we can go, there is fun to be done.
    There are points to be scored, there are games to be won.
    And the magical things we can do with that ball,
    can once again make us the winningest winner of all.”

    Of course I will quote him for discussion purposes, but his word doesn't mean it is 100% going to happen. He hears things being said and reports them. It could be a simple thing like an Essendon person saying, maybe we should chase Wallis. You are writing that his word is gospel and it will happen.

    Re: Bevo: Free agent Dogs have to lift

    A couple of years ago at the B&F (or it may have been the Season Launch) I convinced Mark Stevens that Ben Reid had committed to us as a FA tge next year. He wasn't exactly hard to convince and added the fact that Reid qualified for FA the next year himself. It was if he really wanted to believe it and he went and printed it in the paper the next day. None of it was true, I'd made it up as I was telling him. He called me a frontbottom the next time he saw me.

    Anyway my point is don't believe everything Stevo writes.
    AFLW Premiers 2018




    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    So I will leave it to you to determine which of Stevos tweets have merit

    If Wallis can't get a game at the moment his papers are stamped. Much the same as Biggs.

    There's a few on the outer. Campbell seems an obvious one too.

    Although being picked in no guarantee of being kept on the list either - Jarrad Grant being a good example.

    Have no doubt that Wallis, Biggs, Webb, HC and Campbell will play a few ones games to fatten them up for the year end sales.

    I sometimes wonder why the attention is so strong in singling out these two players. In the case of Roughy, Tom Boyd hasn’t been any better and similarly with Wally both Dunkley and Jong have fallen out of favour.
