    List Mgmt. 2021 List Management: Draft, Trade, Free Agency and Academy

    It's a fake article written to get the supporters heartbeats racing. What will really happen is we'll lose Lobb for a pick in the 30s; we give up a future 3rd and Cerra for Bolton. Bolton chills and Cerra becomes a star. Supporters will continue to spend the next few years on this thread...

    List Mgmt. 2021 List Management: Draft, Trade, Free Agency and Academy

    If only it would be that easy. Unfortunately it would cost our 1st, Lobb and extra. We missed our chance with Jackson, Naughton etc, we need to try and focus on the next crop of WA talls. This coming draft may be the best opportunity. With three local tall forwards ranked inside the top 25-30...

    Prediction Round 20: Changes Vs Richmond + pre-match discussion

    Meek, Blakely, Bewley, Tucker, Western, O'Driscoll and Hughes all on the extended bench. I have a feeling Bewley will be back. My prediction is: Out: Fyfe, Walters, Pearce In: Blakely, Bewley, Hughes Western as the sub seeing as though he can't play WAFL. Good experience to be part of the...

    List Mgmt. 2021 List Management: Draft, Trade, Free Agency and Academy

    It depends with the compensation but I almost feel like we're better off with two picks in the 10-20 range for Cez as opposed to a pick 5-10. There are a lot of quality WA boys who will fall in the 10-30 range. 3 picks in the top 20 and 4 in the top 30 means we're every chance for one of...

    List Mgmt. 2021 List Management: Draft, Trade, Free Agency and Academy

    Not having access to Motlop until pick 40 is not ideal but not the end of the world. We need to be strategic about who we pick up and not select someone just because they're in our academy and 'cheap'. If Motlop gets 'bid on' in the 20s, regardless of the discount, we're spending a reasonable...

    Round 20: The Green is back for Retro Round

    Oh God, they're now selling a long sleeve version of the 1995 wool version with the original AFL and Hard Yakka logo. $250 is a lot without knowing how it will fit but I've been waiting for this years. Just hope wifey doesn't see how much I'm spending on this.

    Prediction Round 20: Changes Vs Richmond + pre-match discussion

    I don't want to give up on finals yet with three games lined up at home. I know the quality of the opposition but you never know. For that reason I would hold off on O'Driscoll and Western for this week. Acres seemed to play well on the weekend and didn't sulk. I'd bring him in and Blakely...

    I'm nervous about this talk with SSP. If Cerra leaves, a trade involving SPS must be separate. I'm now hoping Cerra stays. I'm not fussed on Lobb, he's injury prone, soft and only stands up a handful of times. If we're playing him more as a permanent forward - we may as well move him on. Pick...

    Round 20: The Green is back for Retro Round

    Also I'm pretty sure the last time we wore the green was one of our most dockery moments in history. Round 22 1997. We needed to beat the bottom of the ladder Melbourne Demons to make the finals for the first time in our history. Of course we had an injury crisis at the time, and of course we...

    Round 20: The Green is back for Retro Round

    Love it. Was hoping to get one shipped to the UK but most sizes have sold out. Hopefully they restock!

    Yes unfortunately looks like Hilly won’t get a farewell game. Very sad. It’s a good reminder to the young guys, it’s a brutal and short game, you need to make the most of every opportunity.

    Prediction Round 19: Changes Vs Sydney + pre-match discussion

    Although I like Hughes effort and hardness, I'm still not convinced he'll be a permanent member of our back 6 when we're fully fit. I'm happy for Young to be back in the team. Likewise Acres, although he's been pretty good, he is part of the brigade that needs replacing if we want to be a...

    Prediction Round 17: Changes Vs Hawks + pre-match discussion

    Colyer has to go. Although he’s had a solid season he hasn’t been good enough the last couple of weeks and he’s 29. We need to look to the future. Out: Colyer In: Crowden or Western Keep Walker in the team - he’ll continue to grow. Tucker and Bewley are on thin ice. I really don’t rate Tucker...

    This is Garlick's opportunity to put his foot down and not get pushed around. There's no way Carlton or the AFL would allow the game to be moved to Perth if this situation was reversed.
