if he doesn't shirk a contest he is better then cutler

if he doesn't miss targets inside 50 he is better then Shiel/Caldwell

already has a bigger body then Ham and Cahill

we could do worse

I’m still hurting from the unrealised potential.

That 8 goal game lives on in the memory
Not to get too bogged down in the Riemers discussion etc and I'm well aware of him throwing the club under the bus with the Supplements Scandal. But what actually put him on the outer with the club before that?

Seemed like he was a bit of a spark in the an otherwise mediocre period for us.

He was an absolute deadshit.

As is my understanding.

Interesting, I went back over his history and we'd kill for someone with his skill set, aggression and ability at the moment.

He even seemed to have knuckeled down and started to produce the things asked.

Sounds a lot like it was a genuine personality clash with Sir Jim and a crowd high 5 was the final straw... LOL

(edit: just read Dappers response) Hmmmmmm...

There is a bit of an irony to Reimers "look at me" looseness and cock sureness tbh when you see what some are liking about Archie. Ohhh well, TFC.

Looking forward to Archie's debut. 🙂

When the ASAGA thing broke out, Reimers made a whole bunch of statements about Essendon making the players signing waivers etc.

Spike McVeigh replied as follows (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.th...veigh-blasts-drugs-claims-20130206-2dyww.html)
''Kyle Reimers has come out and said some things that are untrue. He is a disgruntled player, was delisted from the football club, very rarely turned up for pre-season training in any sort of form that resembled a professional footballer.

''It wasn't a waiver, it was a consent form. It was clearly stated to us what we were taking. If you didn't know, you must have been asleep in the meeting. You know what, Kyle probably was.''

I imagine that probably had something to do with it
