you sound incredibly pessimistic

as per his presser others were keen but he wanted north as the best fit
Now please Mr Ziebull.

Can we discuss Jamie MacMillan and your positive outlook on him thank you?

I mean, he hasn't been delisted by an AFL club yet absolutely ridicule where possible - yet you are actively promoting a player (i hope he's great!!) that has been delisted multiple times.

The rationaile is very difficult to follow.

I’d discuss Macmillan but I’m banned from his thread but I’ll find other relevant threads to share my thoughts there. One of the few players I don’t rate.

This bloke Walker will be a player for us though. To have a bloke of similar size and athleticism to taz will help us immensely

Now please BBB, who are you really? Given ZB hasnt been banging his JMac drum the two weeks you have been on bigfooty, you must be someone else. Which begs the question, why?

he's got the position full back written all over him. Solid and dependable, can take a intercept mark and at 106 kg, he is a powerhouse. Daw will not recover, give him 2020 to sort out his post afl career like starting a coffee club.

Room for both

Daw is in full training will be fine for preseason games gets through that and assumes his third tall role with relief ruck with taz and walker taking the keys

Would be interested in the Bears' depth chart and the KPDs who were award of Johnnie Walker?
Lions prefer andrews Gardiner and Marcus adams

Their depth is Matt eagles on the rookie list and a developing young jack Payne

Pretty confident prediction from you on this...

Daw was about 6 months ahead on his recovery based on standard population recovery times and has looked solid at training. There is a fine line between giving opinion and being toxic.

Got nothing to do with agreeing with it or not.

When you are saying someones career is over before they have even set foot on the field in a comeback from mental illness which progressed to physical injury, it is a little toxic.

Not much 'Supporting' there.

Wait and see what? You said he was done, and yet there he is not being done. And then follow up with some coffee club bullshit.

You're making a super early call based on nothing likely just so you can pull out a "told ya so" if it happens to prove accurate.

On the plus side though ill be cheering for him just that little bit harder, just to shit up "supporters" like you.

Posters trying to end players' careers aside, I see Walker as the immediate Thompson replacement as things stand. McKay and Durdin would need rockets up their backsides.

Gotta chuckle at the "experts" in here who have clearly analyzed sweet fu** all of his 85 game career, and are now making definitive calls.

It's no wonder they keep changing usernames.

True. But there is a difference between arrogant and confident. He is talking like he is guaranteed to play in the AFL. You don't get de-listed from 2 clubs just "because"

He needs to prove to us that hes good enough to play not about to gift players game time just because we grabbed him in the off season. IMO the new north is going to be more brutal when it comes to the selections
Geelong didn't delist him, Lions traded for him. He was a victim of a lack of list spots at the lions. Probably would have preferred keeping him rather than signing Birchall but time will tell. He'll be a good pick up for you guys.

Who would ever thought David Calthorpe would be the voice of reason?

Thank you sir.
