    If I recall correctly GVGjr was very bullish on his prospects.

    Yes he came down with Chris Ogle. His father was a pro golfer.

    Brett was an interesting character, heard him at the footy a number of times.

    Yep, I rated him. He was a very damaging player with plenty of pace and a strong kick
    I think the knock on him was the didn't get serious about his footy until he returned to Sydney and they took a chance on him.

    He used to visit the site a bit as well

    Does it count that Scott West told us about his potential?
    They come after one,
    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
    Lets go....

    Re: Getting the Band(wagon) Back Together

    According to some mates, Bulldogs supporter Ned McHenry tore it up in the SANFL semi v Norwood on the weekend.

    He kicked 4.1, had 17 disposals, 4 marks and 5 tackles. Tex Walker also singled him out on radio as a player that he thinks will become a star after seeing the game. McHenry goes for 30km runs in his free time, so could play a small pressure forward role with some midfield/wing time.

    We were into him and rumours were that if we orchestrated a pick swap with GWS (to ensure they got Caldwell) we would have ended up with Smith and an extra pick to use on McHenry. We toured he and his family through WO. GWS allegedly got wind that the Crows had cooled on Caldwell in favour of Chayce Jones, so the deal fell over.

    Ned was one of only three top 20 picks to not get a game this year (with Freo's Sam Sturt and Richmond's Riley Collier Dawkins) and I would hope we are firmly in his ear for a move to WO as soon as possible.

    Poach early on this one.

    I like it. From the sounds of it, we were potentially offering $700k to Jack Martin so we're probably struggling to meet the cap floor. Throw $500k at this kid and pry him out the door.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I like Jack Martin but $700k is way over what he is worth.

    I would think fairly modest money would probably do it. The Crows will leave him in the 2’s early in the year and try to sign him on a next to no money extension. I’d put money on it.

    Slightly bettering their offer, at the club he supported, and in his home state would be enough I would think.

    500k f$#$ me! You can have half a mill and you can have a half a mill and you can have half a mill too. I'd rather my money be centralised to entice a good AFL proven player. Lots to play out before trade week.

    We should be gouging the crows wherever possible right now

    Re: Getting the Band(wagon) Back Together

    Ex-Bulldogs supporting Zach Merett won Essendon’s best and fairest in front of Shiel. As much as I rate him I know a player like him is not what we really need right now.

    However, could we throw a big $$$ offer at him just for fun? Offer him huge money and then let them squirm, before ultimately blaming Dodo for it not getting done. He will be a FA at 25 when his deal expires at the end of 2021, it might plant the return home seed early.

    Plus there is the added irony of him being taken with the pick given over for Crameri
