    If we trade down from our pick to get another first and a future second, we'll be better off....

    Well - MAYBE. But only if the players you pick are the right selections for your club in terms of physical fit, cultural fit and developmental fit...

    How do you get that right? Well...you (make an educated) guess. Or just guess. And cross your fingers.

    When he was interviewed a couple of weeks ago he was asked "What was your best game of the year"...the game he nominated was the one he played against my boys, so I am a bit biased.

    He is a 195cm kid who can play as a key back AND as an inside mid. He's the sort of player who makes talent id easy...just pick him and celebrate getting a 200-game player to your club. Worst case is he's a lock-down defender.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    I might go and watch the 2009 preliminary, and the 97 preliminary oh and stuff it the freaking 94 Billy Brown less garbage.
    Oh boy. Lock up your razor blades.

    That's a 3 course i would burn my eyeballs out to avoid.

    As a night cap may i suggest the '85 Prelim?

    Can I interest you in a glass of the ‘61 GF if you can afford it. If not, I can offer you a two year old if the same variety. Excellent vintages that saw generational talents only see a single flag.

    Glad they made changes to the coaching support team. Let see Bevo goes in 2024.

    It is good to see some change after a disappointing couple of years.

    Agree Willofwest. Something had to change and if it wasn’t going to be Bevo the coaching and development team around him needed a refresh.

    I view these changes as positive. Bevo your going to get these new assistants wether he asked for it or not, to give him all the support for us to have another crack at GF. If we dont male the top 4 this year, it be another year wasted

    I think we need to at least win a final. If we completely miss out again then I think Bevo time is up.

    Agree need to be in the 8 and win a final with the talent we have. Now a tweak to game plan and ability to shut down opposition run ons. When is the goal kicking specialist being announced.
