The hardest part of this is not watching my fav player play against Essendon, but having to change all my passwords :'(.

Stoked for Joe he was able to move on somewhere else and hope he kills it for you guys although I’m really not sure I can watch.
You can sit back and watch him become the player he was destined to be.

I'll sound like a wet blanket, I know, but I'm reserving my judgement until Joe actually shows something significant for us on the park.

I'm really, really hoping that will be sooner than later.

There was a lot of hype 10 years ago about a guy named Brendon Fevola joining the Lions and that didn't end well.

Admittedly, Fev had some dire personal issues that we chose to overlook at the time.

I've got a bit more faith in the decision making process of the regime in place at the club now but still, there is a nagging doubt for me that Joe might not live up to the huge expectations we have for him, especially as there has been more than a hint of mental fragility in his approach to his footy at his former club.

I'm still finding it hard to erase the image of him literally sitting on the fence with a silly grin on his face while a team-mate had a set shot for goal.

Ok, sure, let's put that down to him having already checked out of the Bombers but really.....that was not a good look.

I just can't imagine Fages having any tolerance for that sort of "individuality" and I really hope that has been made clear to Joe before we signed him up.

Yeah I'm feeling the same way......I'm not comparing him to Fev, different scenarios altogether. I just hope our medicos can work their magic on his injuries and keep him sound.

My son is adamant that he was sitting in the fence as the shot was being taken after the siren. Still should have been there to knock the ball away if it came in low,but is better than if it was during the game proper.

If it was his team mate taking the kick, after the siren, why does he have to be there to knock it away?

Not gonna be doing much knocking way of anything sitting on the fence behind the goals.

If he'd just cracked a tinnie he could perhaps have done some knocking down.

reckon we'll start to see glimpses of 2016 daniher, and in 2022 the 2017 version will come on.
He is one of the best players I've seen in reading the ball in the air, leading patterns etc. He's got an elite football brain. Would be good for Hipwood and McStay to play alongside him and learn a thing or two. His field kicking is off the charts too. Goal kicking.... another story.

Those highlights show not only Daniher at his best but footy at it's best

He can take a bloody good mark and has a huge natural leap.
Exactly what we need in our forward line.
If he can get over his yips, he will be a massive addition.
My only hope is that we do not become too Joe centric as we did with Charlie last year.

That right there is a pretty good plan A and B though. Then this year’s More even spread is plan C and Hipwood is the all else goes wrong plan D. There are a few options.

Do you bank with the Bendigo Bank or Commonwealth and you use a Visa or a Mastercard?

We'll just have to play at grounds with no fences:)
You can't bang on the fence. They bought a rule about that in years ago . A group of cheer squad members of one club were interviewed about the new rule and they said it was too uncomfortable anyway, but I assume he would get in trouble if he was sitting on one.
