    SEN reporting Keath is likely to go to Hawthorn now.

    Given this is the cheapies thread... Casbault? Has played ok this year as a KPD, can certainly take the big boys and also run in the ruck. I prefer other options but if we miss out he'd be cheap if we wave a two year deal in front of him.

    The Hun article last week calling us closing in on Martin, Keath & Bruce might be shakey.......

    Maybe that is why we have our eyes on Howard.

    John? He’ll probably go to Hawthorn or Melbourne too.

    Snoopy Davis, you pat him a couple of times and he flops down for a nap.

    How much of this reporting on the supposed dithering of recruits is floated by agents trying to gain maximum leverage on new contract values?

    A lot I'd wager.

    For a short term solution I think he'd be worth having a talk to. He's no star but goes OK in a few positions

    Well, his kicking is good enough. But not for the role he plays. Or, put another way, he isn't quite good enough to play in his 'best' position and he has weaknesses in his game that are magnified by the position he plays.

    Juniors = ball winner, inside mid. Kicking important but a lot of excuses offered.
    Seniors = inside/outside mid. Kicking suddenly critical and no excuses afforded.

    The point you make is a fair one - how does a player considered worthy of the number #1 overall pick not have a good enough kick to play as an outside mid at AFL level.

    Well - AFL footy isn't a different level to junior footy. It's a different sport.
    Sometimes, little technical issues are really hard to fix because - unlike, say, in a sport like baseball (technical sport, swing the bat at a moving ball controlled by others) replicating the pressure of a game in practice is really really really hard. Read Astroball if you want to understand the example I am talking about and the way J.D. Martinez rebuilt his swing in an off-season...footballers can't really DO that.

    So - if a player like Matt Rowell this year gets 'spat outside' because he can't get ahead of the club who drafts him 'inside mids' will his kicking hold up? I think we all say yes, but actually none of us know...and we don't know if he will get a chance to develop slowly and improve or will be forced to deal with the week to week treadmill of playing and therefore never quite get there...
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Keath goes to Hawks do we need to work on our non-indigenous program?

    Our ex-cricketer support program must be lacking.
