Current openings and early calls:
24 - DGB (follow on from Knights, Croad, Stratton, Langford)
33 - Brockman
Still plenty of things to fall into place before you can make a...
Was held tonight. The main news will be the Don Scott no show to accept his induction as a legend, which is a shame and the Club/Don should sort it out. It should have never got this far.
No jumper number annoucncements. Good to hear from the new guys. Clarko has come up with some interesting...
Looking at moving to Brisbane to work this year. Office located in CBD.
Moving up with the wife and 2 kids (3 & 2 y.o.) and another child due in April 2020.
Thoughts on where i should be looking to rent? Best areas and value?
Did Footy Classified run with the story on Monday that Roughy would be stepping down as captain at the end of this year and possibly retiring also?
One year extension was announced in Herald Sun earlier this season, but nothing from the Club.
With the news that the Reserves competition will come back in 2019, I wonder what that will do to the VFL competition. With so few standalone clubs left, how will they run the league?

Solid brown collar and stripes removed from the back
Just trying to fill a list here fellas, the nicknames for each of the players at the club from the Players themselves. Some are simple i know, but there are a few gems. Anyone know of any?
2. Jarryd Roughead: Rough/Roughy
3. Jordan Lewis: Taz/Lewy

OK, with Jed on the LTI, the Club will promote a rookie at some stage you'd think. If so, who will get the nod?
