    Tarrant as a key forward?

    With regard to our on-field issues, our inability to kick a winning score is critical. I realise that it's robbing Peter, and I'm sure that it will never happen, but I feel that we need to move Robbie into attack. Ben needs a second genuine marking threat to become potent again, and I don't...

    List Mgmt. Market Value

    I thought that it would be useful to have a thread, which captures information about market value. It will hopefully inform discussions about the value of our players and offers to other players. My current thinking is that it should be in a tabular form, organised firstly by team. There would...

    Can only teams with top draft picks (and father-sons) be successful?

    There's been a long ongoing discussions, mostly within the Bye Bye Brad discussion, regarding whether our immense mediocrity is because we've only had middling draft picks for many years, or whether its because we have an immensely mediocre list management and coaching set up. The discussion...

    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-04-20/giving-it-away It's been on the AFL web site for a few days, but haven't seen it here. Mods will fix things if I've messed up.

    Equalising the effect of free agents on the competition

We also know that this hasn't been the...

    Equalising the effect of free agents on the competition

    We know that the salary cap and an unencumbered draft are the key factors that should help to keep our competition even. We also know that this hasn't been the case for the last decade, with Hawthorn and Geelong easily being the most dominant teams. An article in yesterday's Age...

    How will we judge 2015?

    How will we judge the success of this year? Is it just enough to make the finals? Do we need to win a final? Do we need to match last year and win two finals? Do we have to win two finals and be competitive in the prelim? Make the grand final? Win the grand final? Moderators - should this be...

    Magpie mischief - totally tongue in cheek

    It's occurred to me that, if the Collingwood Powers That Be decide that Nathan Buckley's position as coach is now untenable, there is a ready made and experienced coach who would be available to step in at short notice. His name is Mick Malthouse.

    Wood signs 2 year contract

    Details at http://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-07-31/mason-wood-resigns. I reckon that leaves Grima, Greenwood and Tippett needing to have new contracts negotiated.

    Nathan Djerrrkura

    I know, footy gods willing, that we're awash with quality young inside midfielders. Would Djerrrkura, if we can get him cheaply enough, add anything to the side.
