    Rumour Tales from the Henley Beach Cafe: CROWS 2021 RUMOURS

    Haha, gold. Chapman is a talentless hack who has made a career of knowing the right people to climb up. He was a cancer on the club, lacks any semblance of leadership and his toxicity filtered down to board level and beyond in my opinion.

    Not going to reveal sources. Put it this way, someone very close to him.

    Although I’m not sure I would trade Laird, I like your thinking. I caveat all of this by saying the crows are most conservative club in the nation. I think we need to take a leaf from Port’s book and trade some players that actually have value: Smith, Crouch, Laird, Seed etc. that are likely not...

    Would trade all of them for Rankine and Luko (not that that is a possibility)

    Rumour Tales from the Henley Beach Cafe: CROWS 2021 RUMOURS

    I know for a fact he was unhappy with the way the infamous camp was handled by the club, and raised these concerns internally (which fell on deaf ears of course). I understand he was generally sick of the boys club culture and just wanted to get out in ‘18. I don’t blame him at all. The...

    Review Good bad n ugly against Richmond - Rd 11, 2021

    If you think we can legit attract Bolton, I have a bridge to sell you. When is the last time Adelaide attracted talent? We have to face the fact no one wants to come to Adelaide besides the odd expat when we can offer a bigger deal/are on the way up.

    I actually think he has plenty of talent. Has a real x favor about him but struggles with consistency. He’s only now coming back from injury this season so hasn’t played much. Plus, the club has some fault here due to classic crows behavior. We played him for two games on seperate occasions at...

    Adding my second agree. Can’t understand why the berg can’t play as a key defender for a handful of games. Seems to be athletic enough to go with any key forward, doesn’t need to mark it as often/present to a kicker and is good below his knees for such a tall guy. When you look at his junior...

    Preview Changes round 9 vs West Coast Eagles

    The lack of at least a second tall is actually bizarre with Darling, Kennedy, Allen all playing. Their insistence on playing Doedee as the second tall every week is really odd, it’s clearly not his position. Not sure why we wouldn’t at least swap Kelly for Murray. Their three talls are going to...

    Agree for most part. I would be moving Tex on as well, sadly. The annoying thing is both lynch and B crouch should have been shopped at end of 2018 when they both had currency. We should have faced the reality that our squad was done as far as competing for the flag. Lynch has been a shadow of...

    Out: Murphy, McHenry, Walker (rested), Mackay, McPherson (Sub) In: Mackay (Sub), O’Connor, Hately, Jones, Murray Could also omit Kelly for worrell debut but would prefer it to come at home. If Kennedy plays, move Himmelberg to play back on Allen, so we have three key backs. Doedee back to...

    Rumour Tales from the Henley Beach Cafe: CROWS 2021 RUMOURS

    I don’t think people are negative so much about playing him in the middle. It’s more that it’s clearly not his no.1 position but yet there’s a contingent on BF ready to write him off without him playing consistently up forward.

    Rumour Tales from the Henley Beach Cafe: CROWS 2021 RUMOURS

    What are you basing that off though? The 10 games he has played exclusively as a forward when the team’s ball movement was putrid? He’s never had a run as our lead up forward and we haven’t had the ability to deliver into the forward line properly with exception of a few games earlier this...

    Can I like this post twice? Very well articulated. Just spot on.

    News Matt Hass gone

    Although I 100% agree with the sentiment, fans forget it’s pretty hard to just let people go and find an adequate replacement. As wonderful as Adelaide is, it can also be very difficult to entice interstaters to move to SA. In fairness to the club in the last 12-18 months, although it has taken...

    Exactly. I think my point has been taken very literally re ladder position. As a club we are more content to just play finals (to placate our older and impatient supporter base), than to actually bottom out for a year or so,secure elite talent and really build a premiership squad.

    Preview Changes Rd 8 vs Port Power

    Tex playing injured without it being on the injury list is nothing new, I would point you towards the end of 2017 (including and especially the GF) as an example of that. He’s looked slower since he did his calf against freo. I agree re ball movement, which has been partly why he’s looked “out...

    I’m saying manage Tex. I couldn’t care less if we win games at the moment, I’m interested in a club that contends and wins premierships which means building our next premiership side. Tex has had his go and we didn’t win a flag, unfortunately. For example, clearly Tex is carrying an injury at...

    But you neglect the one thing that we’ve never done with him, given fog an uninterrupted run as the key lead up forward without Tex. Give him a run of 10 games like that and let’s see how he does.
