    Prediction The run home, 2020

    It’s clearly a complex issue though. Essendon don’t have enough 22-25 year old talented players coming through who will take them to a premiership. By “core”, I don’t just mean star players, I mean the number of important players in the best 22 who fit a common age bracket. E.g. In addition to...

    Prediction The run home, 2020

    I’m pretty sure people thought Cotchin (2012 Brownlow), Riewoldt (2010 and 2012 Coleman), and Martin (2016 all Australian) were a core group of stars before they won the flag mate. Oh and I forgot to mention Alex Rance. And yes Essendon did use the draft, but clearly no where near to the extent...

    Prediction The run home, 2020

    IMO, trying to trade your way up the ladder only works when you have a decent number of core drafted players in the same age bracket to begin with. Only then can you fill in gaps with other players. E.g. hawks were able to do that before their threepeat because they already had a drafted core...

    Any danger of this thread ceasing to be a WA dick measuring contest?

    Nah I don’t think that’s the case (at least I hope not). The players’ effort/work rate in my view isn’t the problem, based on what I’ve seen. It’s more the execution/decision making with ball in hand which is the issue, which wouldn’t make much sense if that was caused by an over-reliance on...

    I’ll dispute this, mainly because we’ve proven countless times we can perform without him in the team. Of course we’re a better side with Gawn in, but interestingly whenever he’s been out injured in the last few years we’ve won more than we lost.

    You’d be surprised how much confidence affects technique. That was the problem with weideman. He wasn’t confident enough to clunk those marks and also (i assume) didn’t have the muscle strength/fitness to maintain the form he showed in 2018 week in, week out. That, and his injury issues in the...

    Because Weideman had issues in his game which he needed to work on earlier in the season (e.g. clunking contested marks which he was sh*t at doing up until now), which he has done successfully. It’s not hard to figure it out mate

    I wouldn’t trade him out for anyone tbh, he's one of our best players. You don’t trade out your core drafted players (our players in the 22-25 age bracket) as that could hurt the team in terms of long-term cohesion, relationships etc. But then again who knows?
