    List Mgmt. Part 3- And on it goes: The trade and draft megathread

    Stephen Wells disagrees with you Keys. Picks around 20 are not valuable according to the Corio Bay experts.

    List Mgmt. Part 3- And on it goes: The trade and draft megathread

    Masto will be feeling the heat. Sheed showed he can play the role, Smith plays the elite runner runner (will hold judgement on his kicking), we drafted youngsters XON and Foley as outside mids, and then Brander/Waterman/Allen all look like they could do a turn. Yeo may be needed elsewhere but he...

    How we and the competition manage wingman with the new rules will be interesting from a list management perspective. The two obvious wingman are Gaff and Masten which has predominantly been due to their massive tanks and ability to get into space. What I saw from the JLT games was a new look...

    Training The 2019 preseason training REPORTS thread

    After the draft, I was thinking Williams was the crown in our jewel. He is 199/200 cm and in 2017 was predominantly a ruckman and in 2018 he was primarily a KPF who relieved Bowman in the ruck. The more I read and see of Edwards, the more I think we got a steal as a rookie. Hopefully we look...

    Preview Identify the biggest factor in whether we can go again in 2019

    Melbourne are the only team to have been to Optus a second time and look at the level of improvement they discovered in the Prelim? I think the opposite will occur with West Coast using the oval and "friendly" atmosphere to advantage.

    2nds West Coast Eagles stand alone side 2019

    Disagree. Not in that company but all hail the SOR Eagles fans who get to stick it up close and personal to the Purple Turds.

    Preview How will we line up in R1 v Brisbane Lions?

    With McInnes, Williams and Brooksby, I think our WAFL team will more likely allow our 3rd talls to play the roles we want them at AFL

    Preview Identify the biggest factor in whether we can go again in 2019

    Shuey was so far the Norm Smith winner it wasn’t a close call. Yes Sheed is winning a load of the pill but his d/e has been low, around the 50% mark. I am hoping he takes the next step and improves his composure and therefore improve his accuracy. If he can do that, then it is back to his Larke...

    How do we want to measure slow? Foot speed but s whole heap more. Decision making, weaving through traffic, hands, boot to ball, tackles, Constable’s game was never based on the need for acceleration but my mail was the key reason he slid was endurance, or lack there of. Tom Mitchell...

    In comparing inside mids, Constable was not slow but lacked endurance. His pace is more like Tom Mitchell and Patrick Cripps and they don’t have pace issues

    Banter Preseason general discussion - The Reigning Premiers Edition

    Slightly off topic but has the game preview allocation been done? I looked but couldn't find anything. It will be a very interesting season for previews.

    The purple turds think they have a chance to get Coniglio. Makes me laugh. I love the way we remain silent. I expect we will have held talks with his agent and avoid playing out negotiations through the media. So how could we make an attractive offer when our cap is tight? length of contract...

    Don’t wind me up on Ainsworth- I was spitting when we took him at 32 when Constable was still on the board. Argghh

    I have been watching Clark for a while and he is not just a HBF. In fact, he played more midfield minutes early with Claremont Colts and moved to the HBF role with the U18 WA team as he was needed him there and there were plenty of midfielders. As a junior, he played HFF and midfield. When he...
