I subscribe to the theory that the Cats, off the back of the Kardinia Park legup, finish artificially high only to be found out playing away in finals.

2019 being a perfect example 👍

What do the AFL clubs want for Christmas, and what does the new year hold? Part one

Good summary, Josh but their 2013 prelim loss to Hawthorn to end the Kennett Curse should have been in that list of worst losses.

Great memories….. 😂

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

In one word, catastrophic!

Enjoyed every second 😛

The decade that was: Essendon Bombers

Tale of woe 😱

Whether it’s over is yet to be seen.

The decade that was: Carlton

Fair enough mate. Appreciate your considered view.

Fun factor back in A-League opening rounds

Cheers Fadida, appreciate your considered views on the standard of the A-League over the years. I still reckon there’s been a lull over the past of years which has also hit attendances but I can’t say I’ve watched anywhere as many games as you so you might be right. I also agree the conditions in Newcastle last weekend were pretty rubbish.

As for ADP, I appreciated him as a club legend but thought he usually stank in an Azzuri shirt 😱

Yep. I’m a fan too 👍 Perfect fit

AFL Phantom Draft 2019: An early top 30

Even if they did, Hawks will not match as they don’t value even at pick 11.

Nah, West coast and the Dogs are clearly better sides after this trade period.

The Saints are overrrated based on losing Bruce in particular.

North a B, Josh?

Oh, I get it…..B for Bonar….

Hmmmm.

$700k p.a? We are talking about JACK Martin, not Dusty, yeah?

Sounds like overs.

AFL Trade News: Joe Daniher, Tom Papley, Jack Martin miss out on deadline day

Consolation for the Swans is that Daniher wasn’t the best fit in their forward line IMHO.

As for the Dons, well, another underwhelming season beckons.

Hawks make out like bandits on Patton trade if he stays on the park otherwise nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Don’t mind it, 6×6 👍

AFL Trade News: Demons get their wings

Not sure why Dees weren’t in the frame for Hill.

Elite kicking wingman fits their clear need.

Brilliant idea for a series of articles 👍

The decade that was: Adelaide Crows

Yup. Genuine role player. Really important in any team.

AFL trade news: Mason Cox, Orazio Fantasia, Tom Papley, Ollie Wines and more

I have fond memories of the 2015 grand final and Ryan Schoenmakers part in it but he def. isn’t continuing his career at ANY AFL club in 2020.

Take care, champ. 👍

The Mitchell trade in particular was foolish in the extreme but as a Hawks fan, thank you so much 😛

AFL Trade News: Essendon confirms Joe Daniher trade request

BTW I reckon Daniher is worth no more than a very late first rounder or a straight swap of Papley and a late second rounder.

Of course, Essendon usually think their rubbish bins are gold plated so I expect this deal might go down in flames.

As a Hawks fan, my fingers are crossed this bites both the Dons and Syds on the b*m.

Would like McGuiness but I’m still thinking the Hawks may have another highly-rated player in their sights beyond Patton and Frost.
No real idea who but Ollie Wines or Lachie Whitfield keep occurring to me.
Butler also on the radar to replace Puopolo

AFL Trade News: Jamie Elliott, Tom Papley, Tim Kelly, Zak Jones and more

Rubbish. It’s not like the players just contracted to the original 8 teams are being compliant and the newbies are rebelling.

AFLW players urged to reject new deal

So no Elliott or Pick 2 target Noah Anderson for Hawthorn?

God knows who’s on Wrighty’s radar but it’s likely to blow minds. Er….I hope….

Could be both have signed on for one too many tbf but they have both been physically robust to date albeit Gary opted out of his last couple of years up north to leave some petrol in the tank for his return to Geelong.

This trade and draft period will re-define both sides chances to contend again but neither Burgers or Gaz will be the difference IMO.

Ablett, Taylor to play on with Geelong
