    List Mgmt. Contract, Trade and Draft Discussions - 2024 Edition

    You can hardly blame the club for being cautious, Yeo was available for less than 50% of our games from 2020-23. Or to put it another way in 4 completed seasons he managed less than 2 all while collecting big coin. It seems like Pyke has had a look at how we've been burnt on contracts to injury...

    Unofficial Preview Bye Round Musings - Remaining fixtures, spoon likelihood/will we win another game this season?

    Take this with however many grains of salt that you wish. Bloke on YouTube "True Eagle" says that he was recently contacted by someone close to the club (before the game last week) who said we were varying our training loads and was convinced we'd lose to Norf but also equally convinced we'd...

    Prediction Round 13, 2024: Changes vs North Melbourne

    Ok point taken. That indeed sounds more promising but I'm still not convinced we'd be rushing in a 1 game Beagle forward if we were really confident Waterman was fit for Saturday. Hopefully my fears are unfounded.

    List Mgmt. Welcome Harry Barnett (Pick 23, 2022 National Draft)

    Good decision. Far too early to make a judgement call now, though some nuffies have tried but it give it another 2.5 seasons from now and we'll know if he's going to make it or not.

    Prediction Round 13, 2024: Changes vs North Melbourne

    Great news for the young(ish) fella and I hope he goes well but it does seem a strange selection. I don't think one game with Beagles playing with a leg rope to the goal post is going to immediately translate to our senior team. Unless of course (and here comes my cynical nature) the club are...

    Prediction Round 13, 2024: Changes vs North Melbourne

    Yeah Yeo. Thursday selection "Yeoy didn't quite get up this week". Saturday morning "Waterman needs surgery".

    MRP / Trib. The MRP/Tribunal Thread - 2024 Edition

    That's the odour I'm smelling. Norf go 0-23 or even 1-22 and inevitably more people start asking "why are this mob still in our competition?" Mumma Kane doesn't want to face those type of questions. With regards to the AFL I'm starting to think the club needs less of the softly,softly tinker at...

    Looks like it. A team going through a season winless would be pretty embarrassing in their "equalised" competition.

    Autopsy Round 12, 2024: Positives and Negatives vs St Kilda

    Should never be losing that game once King is forced off. What an opportunity missed. What a backward step from just 2 weeks ago. The selection of Sheed AND Gaff could only ever be justified with the 4 points. It didn't happen and Simpson has to wear it. Sick of getting in front of St Kilda...

    Game Day Round 12, 2024: West Coast vs St Kilda

    If Ryan was at peak fitness he could play as a small FF. He's done it before. But these days he's just a shell of that player we once knew. Guess its hope the land of the giants forward line can hold their marks. Woosha would love it. Predictable but still incredibly frustrating that Trew...

    Prediction Round 12, 2024: Changes vs St Kilda

    The "surprise" injuries are back baby! 3 since the official list on Tuesday. Fully expect 1 or 2 more before bouncedown.

    Prediction Round 12, 2024: Changes vs St Kilda

    If you're trying to rationalize the team selection on the basis of a slightly improved weather forecast for Saturday bear this in mind; The ground was slippery before it rained. We've gone through a record 8 month dry spell and there's still been plenty of blokes going arse over tit. We've had...

    If the Umps want to enforce the HTB rule more rigorously one thing they could clamp down is the basketball move many players try, where they raise their arms while holding the ball in order to avoid their arms being pinned by the tackler. The arm raise should be interpreted as prior...

    List Mgmt. #11. Tim Kelly - Welcome to West Coast

    4.5 seasons with us and the gap between his best and worst is still a Grand Canyon sized chasm. Couldn't possibly be rated any higher than "qualified success".

    I remember hearing an ex Docker on radio saying he was shocked when in the lead up to a game at Kardinia his teammate, Chris Tarrant, told him he'd never played at the ground.

    Prediction Round 12, 2024: Changes vs St Kilda

    No idea about changes yet, I think there may be issues with a few players in the wash up over the next day or two. But bear this is mind, the surface at Optus could be a mess by bouncedown Saturday. There's a soccer match AC Milan v Roma on Friday night and wet weather is forecast for all of...

    Would we be a bit gun shy throwing the kitchen sink at Warner after what we had to give up for Kelly?

    Autopsy Round 11, 2024: Positives and Negatives vs Kuwarna

    Today reminded me of a quote I heard from Troy Aikman, the legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback. "In the NFL humility is 7 days away". If there's any positive from today I hope it's that realisation from our players.

    Tempting fate but only 3 players could be described as long term injuries. Best shape we've been for a while.

    You're not talking about Yeo are you? Because he hasn't played 14 games in a season since 2019, when he was 25 years old.

    If ever a situation screams "rolling 12 month contract" it's this one. Yeo hasn't even played half our games since 2020 while collecting big coin. He's had chronic groin and other soft tissue injuries for years and is currently injured due to a can you guess, groin injury. Yeah he's played 5 or...
