https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/bullying-tactics.890788/ 2011 draft, Elliot Kavanagh. Just in time for the whole * saga.Who was this ass hat to whom you are referring? I don't remember this at all (though I may not have been posting on the board at the time)
Apparently he can't leap tall buildings with a single bound, just a good footballer.I am surprised the lack of interest in Finlay Macrae to be honest , I followed his brother closely in his underage football. Finlay at same age was tracking above jack in regards to development and output and it was only late in his draft year that Jack pushed up draft boards with a bullet. I rarely post but I can’t see how Jack Macrae would not be our best midfielder since Boomer on current output, I fear we will regret watching Finlay accumulate possessions at will against us for years to come . Outstanding family, great genes , I would be thrilled if he was available at 11
Oh I remember about this kid now. What a d***. You don't wish I'll upon people but if this isn't karma telling him to go suck a fat one, I don't know what else it is.Who was eventually delisted after 5 years, spent one year in SA, then back to local footy.
Well well well - Perkins has gone from zero chance of lasting to our 2nd pick to 50% in one interview....assuming the AFL don't get involved here and tell Perkins to pull his head in and that he has 18 prospective employers not 10.Sam: Have you told interstate clubs that you don't want to leave Victoria?
Archie Perkins: I have and I hope they take that on board. Personally I feel I'm not ready (to move) in my stage of life and I feel it would impact me.
Archie Perkins: I've spoken to a lot of people and they've said 'I didn't want to move away from Victoria as well' but they didn't say it and I was like 'you could have said it and stay here', I'm just confident enough to say it (that I don't want to leave the state).
Sure, the GC/Geelong thing felt a bit one sided but the pick had no value to GC so they were still better off.Deals like involving GC and Geelong come to mind. Ie A future first for 27 with the pressure of live drafting and pick trading.
It’s why us members help pay people to make the tough decisions for the club.Sure, the GC/Geelong thing felt a bit one sided but the pick had no value to GC so they were still better off.
I just think that of course we should canvas all options, but we shouldn’t bypass a chance to improve our hand because we are waiting around to be showered with gold
What if you were being offered the same money to work down the street?At the end of the day these are kids getting paid good money at 18 years old to do something they love. Plenty of adults have to make sacrifices for their jobs, so why should this be any different?
Can't handle being away from home at 18? That's fine, just don't nominate for the national draft until you can.
FMD I would've moved to Antarctica if I was being offered 85-100k as an 18 year old fresh out of High School.
This indicates that you have a choice. You don't get to pick where you go in a national draft.What if you were being offered the same money to work down the street?
Apparently his old man was the main d*** with all of that and I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.Oh I remember about this kid now. What a d***. You don't wish I'll upon people but if this isn't karma telling him to go suck a fat one, I don't know what else it is.
I was wondering what happened to him but to see what ended up happening, you can't help but think that he got his just desserts
