Why the Crows shouldn't bid for Jamarra Ugle-Hagan with pick one

maybe to move forward,but a first 2021 rounder maybe on offer…

Why the Crows shouldn't bid for Jamarra Ugle-Hagan with pick one

yes, went to all of them and ask your special question…..

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

well to drag out a star like Geelong do every year sometimes you have to ask, what is a retirement fund when you can build a list for the future, no one is saying paying $500,000 a season for a winger for 3 years at 32 years of age…are we Cat supporters,….NO, or 1.5 million a year for a Gary for him only to return for $350,000 a season, the Sun’s will continue to be an easy money pit and a breeding ground for other clubs as long as they continue trying to be what they are not….its only a matter of time until they work out the Brisbane effect…

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

I think your being silly Tom, it doesn’t matter what you think what others think, it matters what is best for the club as a whole, clearly you don’t have the best interest of GC in mind, but to say we don’t want him or her because they did us wrong is the very reason you should want them, if you want the best sometimes you have to look pass your own personal issues be that whatever and go for it.
Mate the Suns have a huge future as far as I can see they still need some top up players around the 28 to 32 year old for maybe …..
hmmmmm 3 years maybe, if your lucky and if you have to pay overs for that so be it and credit to the current mob they did and have looked at that and tried, but I think they need to pull off bring in 3 ex-stars together to really drive that professionalism back/mid/forward to drive the club forward.
Thomas no matter if your a supporter or paid up the Suns have a real future in the AFL as a power side like WCE or Collingwood, but they need to be bold.

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

Its just opinion if you don’t like it don’t comment, as I said I like what SOS did at GWS and Carlton with the list builds over 10 plus years and believe he would do a good job with the current list at GC and its future, if you don’t like that fine, no need to be nasty about it.
As for paid up members my comments clearly bite hard on you, why that is I have no idea, but those that vote get to have a say on how the club is set up and who is running the show at GC land clearly having a opinion on a subject is your right but you need to understand some people will see things differently to you, doesn’t mean they are wrong or right.
Maybe sit back and relax Tommy, no one is trying to stir the pot just happen to have a differences of opinion.

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

Hey greenfreddy,
have to disagree with your reasoning, although they all could apply to the current situation so not to say your wrong, I think Adelaide won’t play silly games in this draft or the 2022 draft both drafts are far to important I believe they have a strategies in place which may entail a marching bid on a player because another has been taken but I wouldn’t worry about the young fella in Jamarra Ugle-Hagan getting to the Doggies as they have enough points to get him if a bid comes.
as FOR NUMBER 1.
LOGAN MCDONALD – I think may end up being the best talent in this years draft, he has already played in an open age competition and has shown enough to say that he could be a once in a generation player.
JAMARRA UGLE-HAGAN – may end up being a superstar and may not.

Why the Crows shouldn't bid for Jamarra Ugle-Hagan with pick one

All I’m saying to which you completely disagree with is he has a great deal of experience in this area and would only make the Sun’s better in the future, (can’t change the past Thomas, because it has already happened as this is real life not a movie), personally I don’t care what the Sun’s do mate, I just see SOS body of work and I like what he has done at GWS and then at Carlton, but hey its your club (if your a paid up member that is) and if your happy to be raided thats kool as well, other clubs need players and if Sun’s continue to be a nursery for players for other clubs to take at will then so be it, I’m sure the 14,465 paid up members may disagree with you.

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

So what your saying about SOS, is that you would like the Suns to continue to be raided, by the likes of Adelaide and Port Adelaide in the future, because you feel that because SOS was able to pull off a deal you didn’t like, so your saying no to the best people and will stick with those that get touched up at the trade table, interesting.
hmmmmm lucky you have no control over the administration and appointments at the Suns, I would think SOS would be a perfect fit for the Suns, he has the experience and know how to get the job done.

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

Get Steven Silvagni up there for 3 or 4 years and he will sort them out, really like what he has done both at GWS and Carlton, GC just need a little bit of luck with the younger players staying and some smart trades in and out, they have some great young talent on the list and I would then think over that period they would be a finals team.

Have Gold Coast's concessions actually been a hindrance?

Collingwood still has a very good list and beat a full strength WCE and will have improvement in their younger players and the return of a couple of players who missed the finals through injury, I think they will be around the mark.

How good are Collingwood really?

Mate, Nic can’t cover the ground thats a fact, he won’t win a premiership medal and has a used by date, are you suggesting he will get better with age?

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

Mate I’m not saying WCE will die a slow death and disappear or move to Tasmania, all I’m saying is I don’t think 2021 will be a great year they are slow out of their backline their forwards will not play the whole year at their best, but I did say that ‘Ryan – will only get better and could be the best forward in the AFL for the next 5 years’, but 2021 I think will be a bit of, ‘yeah maybe we are a little old or slow and we need to bring in some new talent’ for 2022.
they simply won’t make the grand final in 2021 and will be lucky to make the 8.

A speculative look at the next AFL season

I look at the WCE list and they look slow out of their backline, their keys players are getting older and may not see the season out, I just worry more about them than a Collingwood or Geelong when it comes to slipping down the ladder, just an opinion, champ, you have yours and I have mine,

A speculative look at the next AFL season

Nic couldn’t keep up with the young kid in the game don’t worry about the fact he was up against a teenager, Nic is slow, full of injuries and have never play a game out.

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

Correct, wonderful fella can play, but hasn’t really ever played a 4 quarter game.

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

Nic will never be, I just don’t rate a guy like Nic as a 4 quarter player, yeah has a awesome 5 mins a quarter Paul Salmon would ruck one week all day then kick 10 goals the following, Justin Madden kicked the goal in the 1995 premiership that closed the door on Geelong, Carl Ditterich maybe one of the best players ever to play.

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

these guys can play all 4 quarters week in and out, most would have a premiership medal as well.

Watched a young kid run him off his feet in De Koning, a player that plays for 5 mins a quarter can’t be considered a great player, yes he can do some great things but that is different to being a great player, I wouldn’t rate Nic in my best 20 ruckmen maybe not even in the top 30, they wouldn’t even let Nic carry Dean Coxes boots.
But thats my opinion.

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

I worry they won’t have a fit, Kennedy, Hurn and Nic for the finals and this may end up being their issue, but time will tell.

A speculative look at the next AFL season

hmmm, not sure on the Pies sliding or just leveling out, still think their list is quite good, Eagles I do worry about, Freo was a side I looked at as well but I will hold out on them next season I think 2022 will be a big year for the purple, Brisbane will only be better with Daniher in my opinion and Port yeah I think they will slide but may still make the finals.

A speculative look at the next AFL season

Nick Blakey for me 195cm and 20yrs can be a mid, inside or out, key forward, winger and has a footy brain, could be an All Australian in a couple years.
Nic Naitanui? won a flag without him so nah isn’t and has never been the best ruckmen in my opinion, hasn’t got a footy brain or he would be a superstar.
Liam Ryan will be the most exciting player in the AFL next season or the one after.
Aaron Naughton at 20 yrs and 195cm has to be the one for me if the Bulldogs win a flag.

The five players your team can't afford to lose: Sydney, West Coast and Western Bulldogs

Hey Trent
Every season a side will pop up and I think Carlton may do that, which side do you think outside the finals this season gone will pop up in 2021 and which side may slide?

A speculative look at the next AFL season

Have to reply to my own comments as WCE supporters are a bunch of lovely opinionated people.
So why I think the Eagles will slide.
WCE KEY PLAYERS
Kennedy – will not get better and may not see the season out.
Hurn – will not get better and may not see the season out.
McGovern – Will not improve any more but will play at the same level.
Darling – Will not improve and will suffer without Kennedy.
Kelly – May get better.
Nic – 50/50 if he completes 2021 season.
Shuey – 30yrs can’t get better and may go backwards.
Ryan – will only get better and could be the best forward in the AFL for the next 5 years, superstar in the making.
Gaff – likes to beat up on teenagers, smashing fella, will be in good form 2021.
Yeo – can only get improve.
Sheed – Good player.
Cripps – hmmm maybe seen the best of him.
Barrass – Good player.

A speculative look at the next AFL season

Really like the Tigers list,
Bulldogs should be very hard side to beat,
Brisbane can only get better with Daniher,
Blues are my outside side getting in,
Pies I think still have a top 8 side,
a healthy Crouch will be huge bonus for Saints,
Geelong forwards won’t be as good as it looks on paper so they slide,
Port has had its best year,
WCE are my biggest worry for 2021 could be a huge slide for them,
GWS/Frem same same for me one will level out and the other will improve,
Melb/GCS same same Dee will slide and GCS will improve,
Sydney need more time and games into their kids,
Hawthorn needs to bottom out and pick up a couple good talls,
Essendon have gone backwards as a side didn’t pick up any players that will make a impact for them in 2021 or 2022 and lost 3 match winners.
Adelaide need time, but like the bottom out and hope they get some good young tall talent through the door.
North, well, well, what the hell is happening here, flag in 3 years, hmmmm NO, don’t think so, I fear North Melbourne may end up being the Tasmanian Kangaroos in 3 years, really respect the club and would go with my father to the G on a Friday night watching the Kracka brothers do their business (love their name as well), watching the Roos through the middle and late 90’s wow, wow, I fear all will be forgotten in about 20 years time, shame hope the current board get it right for their supporters and for the fans of the game.
