    Yeah I bet he will too, doesn't mean we should trade him. 10 weeks ago he iced the game against the maggies and then dominated the doggies.

    Remember correlation isn't causation

    Tosh. The Melbourne-listed players set to play in the VFL train with Casey in the latter part of most weeks.

    No. No they don't.
    Casey train Monday (recovery), Tuesday and Thursday night.
    Melbourne players do not go to Casey for training on Thursday nights.

    Considering my missus is sitting next to me and is employed by Casey, no. They do not

    The only joint training sessions they've had have been preseason and finals last year

    Would you like Jack? He's all yours for a second rounder flog. He'd look good in blue and white.

    And why aren't you watching your own game? Oh, getting flogged by the rebuilding Hawks.

    He was in great form early and mid year when we were travelling nicely. You're definitely wrong tempy

    No he wasn't. He didn't play in the preseason comp because he didn't put in at training. Shock horror. Then he played barely passable games. Watts' value on this board is massively overstated. Time will tell but I reckon he's finished as a Dee.

    Sorry mate. I like your stuff normally. And I get seriously pissed off with some of jacks weak efforts too. But you don't seem to see clearly when it comes to jack. You're like that poster who just hated Gawn a couple of years back and refused to acknowledge his value.

    Jack was one of our best and most consistent performers in the first half of the year. Has a lot of faults, but when he's playing at his best he's super valuable and he was near it in the first half of the year.

    Goody is the post game presser

    "We want players who will compete every time when the ball is in their area"

    I think it's pretty simple what Watts needs to do.

    Watts is a " cherry on the cake " player. Cops it even when he isn't playing I have no doubt he is a required part of the puzzle

    Would be all for Watts playing HBF again, to be honest. He's far better than Wagner.

    Can take a mark and always hits his target, which is far more important for a HBF player.

    Mate, did you see Wagner today?

    I think people assume he's good in the contest because he isn't quick ... but he's not.

    I think it's pretty harsh to say Watts wouldn't have added to our side today, especially in the third where we made poor decision after poor decision.

    Weid didn't exactly put in some great efforts, but he'll get another week.

    The 3 games he played coming back from injury were shithouse and below afl standard but from all the bashing and trade talk it looks like people have short memories. Watts from 2016 until he got injured in Round 14 was consistently good and only played a couple of shockers in that time. He also stood up at key times, which won us a few close ones.
