Someone should do Hawthorn and Melbourne next just had a quick look at both lists I think someone could put a winning combination together.

What if Carlton and Collingwood joined forces?

Interesting so you have to pick 11 players from each side, okay here it is, please be nice I tried to pick a side that may win a game, I left out heaps of first pick players but only had 11 from each side to pick from.
Before you comment give it a go, its really hard, I used more of Carlton’s taller players and Collingwood’s smaller players.
B=Blues, P=Pies
B: Simpson (B183cm) – Weitering (B196cm) – Howe (P190cm).

HF: Gibbons (B175cm) – Charlie (B192cm) – Seton(B182cm).
F: Elliott (P178cm) – McKay(B204cm) – Stephenson (P188cm).
Foll: Grundy (P203cm) – Pendlebury (P191cm) – Ed (B180cm).
Inter: Treloar (P182cm) – Adams (P181cm) – Phillips (P187cm) – McGovern (B191cm).

With the competition being more and more even I think a lot more games will excite those supporters of the winning sides and those of the losing side as they feel their sides are nearing their full potential.
Let’s hope for all the sides in 2020 that all the best players stay on the park and injuries are kept to a minimum, personally I’m excited about all the sides and the quality of footy for season 2020.

The AFL rounds, matches and moments you cannot miss in 2020

This kid should just worry about the rest of his life and give footy a miss.

St Kilda football boss on the Patrick McCartin situation

Bennell I would think would be a nice fit at Hawks, Dees, Swans, teams with experienced players and a chance for a top 8 finish after missing out in 2019.

Harley Bennell would do 'literally anything' for an AFL lifeline

If this fella can get fit and play a full season I think he could be the pick up of the year and could play a huge part in getting a team into a grand final, I believe the Demons are having a big look at him, we might even hear this call all season, ball is bounced ‘Gawn’ taps to ‘Oliver’ shots out handball to ‘Viney’ Viney handballs to ‘Bennell’ on the wing, ‘Bennell’ kicks long to ‘Weideman’ thats a nice mark and nice goal, Dee up by 30 points.

yes

Do we even want the Gold Coast Suns to succeed?

Correct and I agree and that’s why I said if I was correct.
No harm done.
👍

AFL one step closer to AFLW collective bargaining deal

The fact I said if my statement is correct as I wasn’t fully informed on the details of the contract offer and the fact the AFLW has gain a massive jump in wages, I think I was on the right path, your opinion was to mock.

AFL one step closer to AFLW collective bargaining deal

Very interesting my garbage, seems to be right…..guess some get their information right and others have no idea, hey Tiga.
TPP for AFLW.
2019 $4,748,000
2020 $8,121,555 – 21% increase
2021 $8,722,078 – 7% increase
2022 $10,098,097 – 16% increase

AFL one step closer to AFLW collective bargaining deal

I like the building of the Brisbane list more and more over the last 2 years, I do worry about Hipwood (can he take the next step and become elite) and Rayner (great junior player will that make him an elite senior player) they have gone after senior bodies in this years trade period to which I think was a great move as they are in a premiership window lets hope it stays open in 2020, I still think they need more elite juniors over the next 3 years to keep improving the list, so a balance of bring in senior experienced bodies and trading well at the draft should keep them in that window for many more years.

The decade that was: Brisbane Lions

Are you say some Players, Clubs and supporters are happy to just be in the competition and make up the numbers?

Geelong is officially the best team of the decade

Here is a interesting stat players, Football clubs and supporters all play or wish for a premiership and that’s the only stat that matters all this success talk means nothing, it’s all about winning the premiership.

Geelong is officially the best team of the decade

I think its got to do with the AFLW union and some 30% of AFLW players disagree with what has been presented, think you will find its nothing to do with men and more to do with whats been presented by the AFLW union.

AFL one step closer to AFLW collective bargaining deal

So they the AFLW aren’t after a pay increase at all, just happy to play more games, then whats the issue, if some games can’t be on TV so what.

AFL one step closer to AFLW collective bargaining deal

From what I understand they the 30% of AFLW players that are rejecting the current offer are wanting to move forward on wages only correction to the current offer.
So in short the best women players in the AFLW competition would be on the same money of the current AFL best male players, so the AFLW competition that doesn’t have a TV rights and doesn’t generate the same income want the same money.
Now if my above statement is correct not 100% sure, just from what I understand, I can’t see the AFLW competition lasting a year.
The current offer will help to grow the game and will only slowly increase the salary of the AFLW competition, again from what I understand.
It sounds like some in the AFLW competition best players are trying to cash in because they have a limited amount of time in the game to do so and the current players do need to be rewarded.
This is going to be a hard one to solve.

Pretty good summary on the kids and some good reasons why they would be pick up, should be interesting period.

AFL Phantom Draft 2019: An early top 30

Clubs will be lining up next trade period to get Papley as Sydney try to get as much space in their salary cap to get Joe out of Melbourne’s Fish Bowl, Joe will walk from the Bombers and get to Sydney the fact the Essendon football club believe they can make Joe fall in love with the club again, that’s telling me they have botched his injuries from day one and Joe is sick off and not trusting of the medical staff at the club, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Joe only play 10 games next year with little return in those games, to try and hold someone against their will and then try to tell them where they can live this will be a massive lost to Essendon.
We get told that footy is a business, so consider being told by your employer where you can live or told that your not allow to leave to earn more money at another business just wouldn’t happen in the real world.
11 games in 2 years could turn into 20 games in 3 years.
Lets hope picks 5 and 9 don’t turn into a Patty Dangerfield or a Patty Cripps because if they do the Bombers may hurt for 12 to 15 years, just think having a Danger and a Crippa in your midfield for the best part of 12 years and you gave that up just to see the player you gave those picks up for leave anyway.
Essendon get a 2 out of 10.

Dons to “fight like hell” to retain Daniher long term

Have to agree on the Dougal Howard that was a mistake that kid has to much upside to trade out but the coach must of given the green light on that trade surely and they moved back 2 spots in the draft to 12 from 10 and pick up pick 18 for the move, well thats a win in my book, 2 kids between picks 10 and 20.
Paddy Ryder well what has he got left in the tank 1 year of good footy and maybe 2 years as a backup ruck.
Billy Frampton well he is young and looks ready to step up but clearly Port don’t see him making a real impact his stats aren’t great time will tell if this was a win or not.
I don’t think Port botched this draft they wanted to add to the kids from last year Duusma, Rozee and what else could they have done? Players don’t want to move to Adelaide and I think based on what they have drafted in the last 2 years that Ports salary cap would be up around 100% so if they want to try to get a couple of kids from SA who are playing in other sides around the country then they have to free up some cash for 2020 and 2021 trade periods.
I would give them a 6.5 out of 10 only because they gave up Howard or it would be a 7.5 based on the draft picks they got.

Kane Cornes savages former team Port Adelaide for trading young star

Papley was only an opportunity as Carlton didn’t have any control in that possible trade, Martin will cost nothing, Betts is good for 30 plus goals which I would think the Carlton supporters would take in a heartbeat and they take number 9 to the draft, great result.

'A disastrous outcome': Carlton blasted for trade period failures

I would say that Papley was only ever an Opportunity and not an Objective’ as Papley was completely out of there control and Carlton only objectives where to get 2 players in they knew they could and if an opportunity opened up on the Papley deal then great BUT if Carlton can pick up another young top 10 player then great as well – I think they did a good job.
Richmond lost 2 premiership players and got almost nothing back now that’s a fail.

Another stupid article by self appointed Guru, what a load of rubbish.

Stephen Silvagni has failed Carlton

Not my point, the point being teams lost young premiership players and did nothing and got a better rating than a team that held onto its best pick and will get a player rated highly for nothing and a young backup ruck to replace a 29 year old ruck and bring in a proven forward pocket player which they needed.
His article put more value on DVI points that are now completely pointless right now as picks are just that picks.

AFL Trades 2019 report card: Every club graded

Phillips is a backup 29 year old ruck and they got in a 23 year old backup ruck that’s a win in my book.
Most likely to get Martin for nothing so that’s a win.
Betts kicked 37 goals last year in a poor team environment and will be in a young positive team environment so to me that’s an up side of the trade of Betts and that’s a win.
And the fact Carlton got an F and Nth did nothing got a B rating Adelaide lost 6 players and got a D rating, Richmond lost 2 premiership players and got a C rating, Port lost 3 players and got a D rating completely stupid reasoning.

AFL Trades 2019 report card: Every club graded

Carlton is in a strong position to get Martin, Papley is contracted and his future was held with Sydney so at best Carlton could only hope to get Betts cheap and Martin for nothing, which there is a strong chance for them to doing and they go to the draft with pick 9, that’s a great result, Papley isn’t a superstar and my reasoning why a F rating is just stupid.
And as for Nth getting a B for picking up a young unproven player who has had knee issues and only hold pick 26 and didn’t try to move up the draft, so I can’t see how Nth had a better trade period than Carlton.
Just stupid to award a F for one and a B for the other to far apart in my assessment.
And he gave Adelaide a D they lost 6 senior players….stupid
