Bloody love the Eagles!!! New fan, and hope it’s a lifelong fandom.

Luke Shuey confirmed as new West Coast captain

Well Done Shuey! Great choice.

Hurn steps down as West Coast captain

Oscar Allen will be WCE captain in 5-6 years. Watch this space.

Fyfe is great.

Yess! Yeo all the way.

(Love Guv and Boots, but… if not Boots (and it will be), then Yeo.)

Yeo.

If not Shuey, then Yeo will warm seat nicely for Oscar Allen in 5-6 year’s time.

Guv? He’s not really a leader though. Would go Yeo before Guv.

What a Wonderful captain… He’s made the right call, paving the way for a younger face.

Shuey will be great.

Thanks Bunga.

and you wonder why…

Coniglio unveiled as new GWS skipper for 2020

Love you JK…
106 days, but who’s counting…
GO EAGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eagles to put Kennedy to work

Port on a good day are my one of my fave teams to watch. Problem is you never know which Port will turn up.

Hope you have more good days in 2020, as you have one of the more favourable draws.

What's going on at Port Adelaide?

Tough draw Eagles! Lions, Cats, Tigers, Freo lucky.

Tigers, Pies and Cats to hog the limelight as AFL unveils 2020 fixture

Wonder who gets 7 home games at the MCG in the run-up to finals in 2020.

Five AFL games you cannot miss in 2020

Would absolutely love to see them succeed. And for a “dud” team, they develop young talent really well. Look at all the stars that have come out of there. I know they get lots of top draft picks, but how many top draft picks end up as wasted potential, or forever struggling to break into the best 22.
Watched a YouTube video on a draft from a couple of years ago, with snarky comments about talented kids dreading being drafted to the Suns, and someone else countered with the fact that at least at the Suns they’re bound to get regular games if they’re good, vs going to an established team and struggling to break into the senior side.
That comment really enlightened me and gave me a new perspective on the Suns.
Also love the passion from the new potential recruits in the upcoming 2019 draft. Really can’t help but root for this team. Plus their song is a great fight song (miles better than that dreadful Eagles dirge).

Do we even want the Gold Coast Suns to succeed?

In no order:
– Top 3: Bulldogs, Cats, Tigers
– 4/5: WCE/Lions/GWS

Wright & King at the Suns. Potent if developed well.

Who will be Jack’s replacement in 2ish years? (Although still very fit – should be ok for another 3 yrs minimum, barring injury).

Kinda agree here, but hopefully finish 4th rather than 5th. Tbh will happy to be anywhere in the 8, because next year all these teams are very real threats to anyone :
– Blues (if the Teague Train doesn’t need replacement buses)
– Bulldogs
– Cats
– Giants
– North
– Lions (if they continue like 2019. IMO confident they will)
– Pies
– Swans
– Tigers

– And IF the Power get on the consistecy pill, watch out. A very good and almost unbeatable team when “ON”.

– Bombers may just be the surprise (Lions) of 2020. They have all the right people. All just need to click, and with Worsfold on the way out, bound to be a change in their playing style from early on.

– Can never write off Freo either. With Lyons gone, will be interesting to see how they play. Like Bombers, have all the right people.

– The wounded Crows will be out for blood and also to prove their doubters and detractors wrong. May be another surprise in 2020. (How good is young Darcy Fogarty looking? Can we call him “The Fog” yet?)

… Not looking forward to tipping season 2020. Eagles are going to have a very tough ride just to the 8 even. (I’ll be happy to eat my words).

I’m with Allen & Waterman 👍 👍

Analysis: How Tim Kelly gives the Eagles the best midfield in the AFL

Doubtful Allen will be ready in time for JK’s departure, as our wonderful JK’s really and truly on his last legs. There may be a 1-2 yr overlap. But definitely Allen’s a great future leader (natural leader by Simpson’s own admission), if all goes according to plan. Although read elsewhere of plans to try him in the ruck? Seems a waste as the kid’s alright in front of goal, but not a footy expert, so will have to trust the WC coaching team.

I’m so torn up about Willie, tbh wish it was anyone else at WC banned (apart from Yeo, Shuey, Gaff, Allen, McGovern, Sheppard)… I know we can’t have it all, but Rioli’s just so magical and natural with the ball, and hard to stop, even when he’s out of shape. Damn, major major loss.

Nevertheless, I think this gives Jarrod Cameron a real shot, and yes the kid celebrates annoyingly, but showed flashes of greatness in very few games. Let’s hope he can learn to deal with taggers unlike his amazing big brother.

Tail end of the season team selection has been a farce with Petch’s dropping of form, and him still getting games over Cameron (and others that were more deserving). At the very least Cameron should’ve been Rioli’s emergency over Rioli’s bombshell departure. We’d have been a better chance against Cats.

Exciting times ahead!

I know… had to pretend he was good to go. 😔

Oooh no. Bad ommission. Fyfe definitely. Cameron can go.

Need both Gawn and Grundy?
For mine would have mostly same as you, but lose Grundy and add Dangerfield, lose Gray and add Rioli (WC), lose Kennedy, add Cameron (GWS).

1. Buddy
2. Pendlebury Dangerfield
3. Shuey
4. Yeo
5. Martin
6. R. Gray Rioli (WC)
7. Cripps (Carlton)
8. Kennedy WC Cameron (GWS)
9. Gawn
10. Grundy Andrews (Lions)

Bulldogs are scary. In the best of ways. Delightful to watch on a good day.
If I were a coach, game plans against Bulldogs would bring great anxiety.

Love Hawthorn but the thought of brown coloured merchandise is too much to handle.
Will continue to love and admire from afar.

Geelong is officially the best team of the decade
