    It's second hand but info I have re Crameri is encouraging
    > He is over the injury
    > The Club will ease him back into full training once his conditioning is at the level needed
    > He is super keen to play and is loving the environment at the Cattery

    Say what you will but he can find the goals and was amongst the leading or leading goalkicker at the Bombers and Scraggers when fit.
    Good punt by the Club :thumbsu:

    If Pods can make it at 28.... he cost the same as Crameri.

    Crameri as a rookie.... well worth the punt.... and if it gives Buzza/Sav/Menzel/ time to get their things right..... ill take it for sure.

    Fox Footy and Hun both saying Sloane is UFA. Despite crows board adamant he’s not. Fun

    I could see him becoming a good half-back flanker, but needs to improve his game reading. He has a few good mentors there that can teach him.

    The bottom 7 that I listed earlier isn't too bad... If we get some solid improvements from say half of them, then it will give us great depth and competition for spots.

    I'm not sure anyone on Big $ at our club will retire or be traded at year end, I think they will want some list stability going to next off-season, maybe snare a a trade for immediate "list needs" and perhaps go to the draft with the others.

    Just looking at the list, we have 6 players at 180cm and below; as we stocked up on smaller types this off-season, I'd say a couple of versatile sized types like Brownless and Bailey Scott would be ideal along with a Key Position player in this draft... If a bloke like Walsh slips to our first draft pick, then you'd have to take him based on last year's form.

    INAUGURAL Adelaide coach Graham Cornes admits he’s increasingly concerned that Rory Sloane won’t be at Adelaide beyond this season.

    And Cornes remains of the opinion that Sloane — rated among the top five players in the league according to Champion Data’s Official AFL Player Ratings — is strongly considering a return to his home state of Victoria for 2019 and beyond.

    “I’m not confident that Adelaide can keep him, but I’m confident that he won’t keep us guessing,” the footy legend told FiveAA on Monday.

    I'm sure that is just what Crows fans want to read

    One key thing to remember with O'Connor is that as an Irish Cat B rookie he isn't competing for a regular list spot, so unless there's another young Irishman we wanted more there's no real competition for his place on the list.

    It’s not too bad I guess, but out of those ten players you listed you might be lucky to see ten or 15 senior games this year, and i’m Not sure what the odds of any of them becoming significant players in the future for the club would be. And that’s a quarter of your list.

    Nathan Templeton:Among the crowd here, Geelong super star Paddy Dangerfield. We are just marvelling at Rafa’s legs. How would you go tackling him?
    Patrick Dangerfield: I don’t think I would be any good. He’s in such good shape.
    NT:Lleyton is in commentary. He reckons you didn’t tackle when you played for The Crows.
    PD:It would be hard to tackle Lleyton because he’s short.
    NT:Gary Ablett returning, how exciting. Have you explained while he was away there’s a new Sheriff in town or is he still the man?
    PD:He’s still the man. We might be trying to pinch a few of Lleyton’s boys, (Adelaide captain) Rory (Sloane).
    NT:Rory Sloane?
    PD:He’s all right.
    NT:Lleyton will be having a heart attack in the box. Good luck when the season starts.
    Hewitt clearly had no idea, his light-hearted gibe at Dangerfield was going to be brought up in the interview.

    And as impossible as it is for Sloane to come to us - in reality - the absolute infarctions his comments must have caused west of border town will be immense and thoroughly enjoyable .

    First time I think it has bee reported that Sloane will be a UFA and not an RFA.

    Makes it difficult for the Crows to keep him if they can't use the threat of matching an offer that exists under RFA. The amount of the offer doesn't matter it is if Rory wants to go to the club if he is indeed a UFA.

    We'd probably have to trade Danger and Selwood to afford him. He will get offers well over a $1M from North, Collingwood, Saints etc. Would be handy but!

    Yep, well aware that he is out of our reach. Same with Sloane who is also rumored to be on the move at the end of his contract.

    How could you love either. You have a dumb bogan like tex as captain, and the less said about adelaide the better. Not to mention the supporters.

    No wonder the players bail out of there in droves.

    Sloane is UFA, he could potentially take a paycut and come to us. Which would be all time viewing on the crows board.

    Don't sell yourself short. You could both be taken hostage by international terrorists and be kept in the same bed, simple.
