Love AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member.

I watched Gallucci play junior footy from under 12’s. Developed early and had a big tank . There were a few great juniors at the time with Dylan and Ryan Clarke and Jaidyn Stephenson all around that Rowville- Ferntree Gully. Paton was around then too but a couple of years earlier.

‘New identity’: How do the Crows shape up after the trade and draft period?

Hated the treatment of Treloar, the others were understandable. Stephenson looked scared of contact in 2020. The bottom line though Thom is we scraped into the 8 in 2020 and yes won one heroic final but weren’t on the pace. Post Ed and Bucks it was time to redesign the whole thing and boy have we. This is the rawest list I can ever recall. I like it. Watched training this week. Fresh, alive, recharged. We get Leppa with McRae which is handy. Veterans look renewed . Bucks had got a little too Kumbaya for some. Defence looks ok injuries permitting. Midfield still has Adams, Pendlebury, Sidebottom, Lipinski looks a get. Hard to say where we might finish. Maybe anywhere from 10-16 depending on injuries.

AFL draft power rankings

I had a quiet word to Peter Moore to get busy now so we get another Moore for the 2039 draft. I think we will be barren for a few years until the Buckley boys arrive.

“We have no idea what our game plan is”…Mitchell will offer the media less than Malthouse. Hates them.

Mitchell won't burden Hawks with 2022 expectations

Most media outlets rate the Pies higher in draft outcomes. What you don’t mention is that if the Pies had pick 2 or 3 then the bid for Daicos was very likely higher than 4. Because the Pies had already traded their currency helped him slip to 4 which was the best outcome they could have hoped for.

Good on ya Nth. Seem to be setting themselves up well and becoming a bit of a Vic destination club .

I think Mummy is the same age as Mick Jagger?

The Mummy returns? Giant shockingly re-unretires to nominate for AFL draft

Had more farewell tours than Johnnie Farnham

He’d probably slot in seamlessly Presti. Gave up his premiership in 2010 by declaring his niggle in GF week Presti.

Where does Michael Voss turn to plug the gaping hole left by Liam Jones?

He should park the booze until he retires in his 30’s.

Pick 64? Might as well give it to them. It’s chook lotto at that number unless you have father sons coming up you can combo

Pies got nothing when Dayne Beams mental health went down causing early retirement. Yes this one is an AFL imposed sanction but so are the concussion rules aren’t they?

It’s no different to a club losing important players to injury in preseason or in season. Pies lost Moore for half the year this year. Tigers replaced Rance and won another flag. Doggies lost Bruce and made a GF. You just need a solid depth squad to cover all contingencies.

I agree with you entirely Col.

Carlton in 2022: A mystery wrapped in a riddle

I saw that. What’s your thoughts on it Col?

Carlton in 2022: A mystery wrapped in a riddle

Nice article Macca and welcome in the void of footy. I can’t get a handle on Carlton. They’ve been promising to come for a long time and never do. It’s like forecasting the Cats to plummet. They never do. They talk the talk and it stops there. The Blues still have a lot of holes in their list. I put a question mark on talent with their B graders such as TDK, Stocker, Fisher, Marchbank, Plowman, Silvagni and your entire interchange. They also seem to be seen as an easy Vic destination for players with some talent and questionable commitment such as Martin and Williams. Hewett has been pumped up in the media but the jury is out there too. Ultimately I think the list has been affected by what easy targets they can get than what they actually need. There’s a high number of players from other clubs and not much in house development at all. Looks like maybe another stagnant year ahead despite perhaps some early momentum with Vossy.

Can’t sell him Chris. If it happened pre trade period we could have. If we cut him now we get nothing for him.

Instagram videos capture Jordan De Goey's eventful night out before New York arrest

Maynard has just stated he loves it at the Pies and wants to play his career there.

One charge dropped, but De Goey still to face court over New York arrest

OM are you genuinely worried about the reputation of the AFL in society though? Because you follow footy do you feel you are a custodian for its moral reputation? If so fair enough but I believe most use a players mess up as an excuse to spout hate.

One charge dropped, but De Goey still to face court over New York arrest

Doesn’t matter really Col. Trying to stay away from too much negativity. Good luck next year for Vossy and your restructured tilt. Pies, Blues and Cats all coached by teammates from the Lions dynasty. Pies have Leppa too. There’s 4. Likely missed others?

More embarrassing than Kane auditioning to be an Easter Island statue?

'The most embarrassing thing I can remember': Kane Cornes absolutely gives it to De Goey over NY arrest

The Pies play Grand Finals this century Macca at the rate Carlton collect wooden spoons. At least our list management this century gets us to the highest level. Maybe wait until Carlton actually do something this century before critiquing other clubs who push the boundaries of their list for contending and playing finals.

UPDATE: Pies stand De Goey down following New York arrest
