    News Staying: Knight says GTFO Carlton you losers, signs one more year

    6 x 18 year olds at the draft is enough. Up to him if he makes the cut for next year. Wish him the best. Kicked some clutch goals and showed a bit of mongrel at times so I am happy that it’s him that gets a bit of leeway.

    So goes a long way to explaining how we just ate on the Gold Coast draft picks. Absolutely got shafted and didn’t say a peep.

    My Greenwood/Ellis comment wasn’t the point at all. But in terms of throwing in the towel on GC I don’t think you give enough credit to a lot of people that understand the argument for the GC and why the AFL went there for the benefit of all of us. I think I understand the argument pretty well...

    yeah I don’t think I’m alone in mistakenly believing that we own our license. I’ve been thinking the exact same thing Ozzie. If what James is saying is true then it explains completely our lack of response to getting shafted with the GC picks. Fagan seems like an absolute pro and if your a CEO...

    I know I should probably know this, but I really don’t. But one of my Dads friends who I really respect is adamant that the AFL own us. They’ve all been members going to every single game for 15 years together, so they are like many of you guys. But my old man has no idea and doesn’t care. I...

    News 2019 Rumour File - discuss rumours here! (Part 2)

    I don’t think the AFL micromanaging a club is ever going to work. You need something intangible to succeed. Brisbane did it and look like they are doing it again. Even GWS are doing it. Even if the Suns kept Lynch and May, I don’t think they were building up to anything. The players look like...

    I am not one of those that revile him. I have defended him numerous times. Especially when he gets accused of not putting his body on the line, which I feel he does. I think that bloke has done everything within his god given abilities and I take nothing away from him. But I think that a forward...

    I get your point and agree that Mackay has outperformed Riley easily. But we should not have given Mackay a contract. Not least because we have Scholl, Hamill and McPhearson in the squad that we need to put games into. At least with Pyke and Campo gone I have new hope that these kids won’t be...

    I was arguing they should do that last year. But they went to the draft with those three top end picks and they are going again with a heap of good picks this year and next. I think Gold Coast are going down the path of a full rebuild. Essentially doing what they should have done in the first...

    Not sure why you are so upset about Gold Coast looking to trade up 15 and 20. The deal you have suggested is a nonstarter but 15 and 20 might move them into late top 10. Its the AFL that is screwing the comp. GC should just take the gifts and do whatever they can. In fact if they don’t then we...

    Balme could be a decent early Christmas present. He is already looking like Santa in that photo :)

    Matthew Nicks Adelaide's new coach

    I did say top quality. I would agree with Craig and Pyke were good but not elite in terms of quality. They both did very well in the home and away. Cornes hard to say. Had a brilliant team full of most of SAs best players and some all time greats for our club. We had probably one shot at access...

    With live trading can you involve more than one club? I am sure you can do it as two seperate transactions. After the Green bid, Freo hold 8 and 11 and GWS hold 7. Using the points systems the following are equal Freo: 8 and 11 GWS: 7 and 13* (in 2020) If GWS give us what will be pick 7 and...

    Matthew Nicks Adelaide's new coach

    I have been heavily involved in the recruitment process a number of times. But its completely irrelevant. I am not saying for a fact that Nicks was a bad hire. Only that of what I do know about him from his coaching history, he is a product of a club that in my opinion has been a basket case...

    Yeah. Was disappointed we let Bulldogs walk all over us in particular, but I am over it already :). I hope that the points value of those picks next year are worth stocking up on. With a bit of luck, it could work out favourably. Ideally we want Edwards/Borlase/Mystery player to be really high...

    In terms of the crows, I think that article intuitively makes sense. We lost a few players that on paper retain good statistical value based on performances going back over the past few years (Eddie, Sauce, JJ). We also lost a couple of very good/productive 27 year olds on Keath and Greenwood...

    Matthew Nicks Adelaide's new coach

    I am keen to know what they will be doing with Younie next year. I reckon he had our young kids playing some good football the few times I saw the SANFL. Assuming they were pretty good all season with where we ended up. No idea if he is a good coach or not but wouldn't want to see another...

    Matthew Nicks Adelaide's new coach

    :) For sure. I have said that is one of his two big positives for me. So no argument there. But in all seriousness, you dont have to be a HR recruiting expert to apply a bit of logic here. What were GWS like before Nicks and with Nicks. They took it an extra step and made their first grand...

    Matthew Nicks Adelaide's new coach

    This new focus on communication is only even on the agenda as a response to how we have completely f’ed it up at our club. It would hardly be getting a mention otherwise. So its essentially a response to a mistake and I really dont like the implication. To me it basically means that we have...
