    Oliver and Trac... best mid duo ever?

    This may change over time, as both are still coming into their prime and may achieve more. But at this point in time I'd be taking a duo out of either of these two midfields first. There are countless others, but these are the best two midfields in recent times for me. Voss, Black, Aker...

    Joel Garner

    I thought they could only re-rookie at the draft. Seen it previously where players have been told they'll get re-rookied if nobody else picks them up.. Not sure on specifics, but we could do a lot worse than picking him up again.

    Fair call - was thinking more this season.

    Might still happen. I'm not sure about players undeservedly being ahead of him though.

    Would you have Choco back?

    The time was right for Choco to go back then. No issues with that at all. He has since held many positions that would have further developed him as a person and as a coach. We hear such great things about him from every club that he has been at - it would be insane to not consider him because...

    Would you have Choco back?

    Alternative view is that those we had rotting in the SANFL weren't good enough - and Choco knew it. How many players did we let go over that period that went on to make something of themselves? This points to our drafting/recruiting as being the shortfall - and that's not entirely on Choco...

    Stand rule

    If they want to open the game up, stop players from delaying the restart of play. It's that simple. No more standing over the ball and preventing access to the ball, or accidentally tangling your legs with the opposition who's trying to get up. What currently happens: Man gets tackled HTB...

    Brownlow Brownlow Medal 2021 - Congratulations Ollie Wines 🥂

    Ridiculous. Priddis (and Woewodin for those that keep mentioning it) were not favourites going in. Nice that you picked 2x dual BM winners and 1 BM, 3X NM winner to prove your point. You're comparing him to the absolute best, including two that have finished their careers. Wines still has time...

    Boak outpolled Petracca (and any of the other vote stealing excuse makers)

    No HQ coming from Adelaide.. Wines was the favourite, why wouldn't he be there? It's not like he was a rank outsider with no chance that just rocked up.

    It's Time

    Agreed - not because he won the Brownlow, but because TJ is at a stage of his career where he may not be in our best 22 every week. TJ has lost some pace and agility, and lost form halfway/late in the season. Dropping the captain is not a good look, so we need to pre-emptively begin the...

    List Mgmt. 2021 Trade Targets

    Agree re:Bergman, he has the physical attributes - probably needs to put on a bit more muscle though. We desperately need a third mid that can really impact games. In Wines and Boak we have two genuine stars. Drew can be our Libba, but it's the next one or two that we really get exposed. We...

    I watched most of the Hawks games (had quite a few in my fantasy team) - he was elite

    Had literally nobody taking votes from him though. If they make finals like they say they will, it will mean a bit more of a spread of work you'd think.

    I'm all aboard to bring him back.
