    Stubbs and Kruger also handy additions, Stubbs came through Baulko juniors before going to Collingwood while Kruger played his first footy for ECE U18s and was in the 2010 senior premiership side. Wouldn't be surprised if Nathan Gordon rejoins having been delisted by the Swans.

    Be a handy pick up gordon with Buchanan Stubbs and Kruger who is a work horse, to my knowledge not to many are leaving either and some 18's coming along nice.

    I would honestly find this difficult to believe or perhaps Tiger players are spoiled.

    It seemed the communication lines between KK (NEAFL), Pav (AFL Canberra) and PC (U/18's) were extremely positive. It needs to be with many players going up and down from ressies to seniors due to injury, form etc and many younger lads moving up to play ressies.

    As for the U/18's the lines were definitely open with many getting a taste for NEAFL during the year and there was also a policy towards the end of the season when Tigers were gauranteed the double chance to keep 1 spot open to an U/18 lad who showed promise to give them a taste of senior football.

    I would have thought this was the norm??

    Sydney hills have had a good off season by the look of it. Having Buchanan and Krueger
    around should free up houlihan a bit aswell.

    A mate at Sydney Uni told me they have signed a player from a rival canberra club. He wouldn't elaborate on who it was or what club the player is from. But he was named in the TOTY

    It should be the norm and is what you would expect clubs to strive to achieve, Kade Klemke is a good coach and the Tigers have always had a great culture and that system was embraced by him when he took on the role no doubt, some coaches don't always have the same vision and do not be so inclusive is all I am suggesting.

    The Tigers model is one clubs should aspire too, I have been in Canberra for less than 8 years and I have always seen the Tigers to be culturally correct as a club in that time, others have varied in this philosophy based on who their coach is and how committed he is to the whole club as distinct from the elite team

    Really hope Ghost Buster isn't Kade Klemke. If so, lad is extremely full of himself judging by these posts:

    Pretty embarassing, if Kade Klemke.

    Think you need to look at the dates they were posted 08 & 09 making him what 17, 18 years old.

    Pretty sure we all did funny things back then.

    haha that is some quality reading there HolbrookWarrior.

    Not sure if it has been discussed but getting hold of Nick Heyne for Ainslie will be good for them. Didn't play much AFL footy but you would think he will still be a handy addition. It will be interesting to see how they go with tall forwards given that in the past when they had been successful they always had a good key forward and even last year with McGregor kicking 50 goals. I know Paine can kick a lot but was probably helped by having tall forwards around him? Stone played back. Maybe Horner if Andrews gets back from injury.

    Hills Eagles are in a pretty comfortable spot I think. Just being in Sydney is a win for them straight away when trying to attract recruits. Could be a pretty good side if they can pull it all together. Heard that Buchannan was only interested in playing around 12 games for the year but?

    Do you think any clubs will take much interest in the draft coming up with potential recruits awaiting to see what happens? I see the youngster from Eastlake Liam Flaherty is in the mix, good luck to him.

    3rd Grade Maggy nice to have you back.

    Care to comment on my mail about your club re Bubba and Ressies coach leaving due to lack of support from Lokan or that local players being asked to take pay cuts to accommodate new recruits??

    Is the Kippax redevelopment behind schedule and over budget?

    Is the club relying to much on J.Bennett and is Lokan a dead man walking?

    Not really. Your echo chamber is much more entertaining.

    I think you'll find your mail was incorrect again. But hey, don't let that ruin a good story.

    What club doesn't ask their players to take a pay cut at one point or another ABH. Should belco just go ahead and continue to increase every players pay ?

    There is a slight difference between increasing player payments and asking players to take a pay cut don't you think?

    And by the way what other clubs do? Fitzroy, Western Creek....

    Can't say I ever experienced this.

    Please share with us my incorrect mail?

    It was on the money when Belco approached Mark Mickan behind Michael Hornes back to replace him at seasons end.

    Mail on Jay Shannon coming was solid just did not expect it so short a stay.

    Mail on Pete McGrath coaching Tuggies was good.

    Mail on court case against Horne was pretty good also.

    So please enlighten us all

    Got any more scoops for us today Hutchy? I heard that they were so low on money at Belconnen that they are only able to afford those plastic auskick posts at Kippax.

    The way they played last year it was like men against boys so makes sense ;)

    And you may want to bring them in after every session, have you seen some of the people that frequent them parts???

    Have a feeling you have no idea what "cocks of the north" actually means do you in the Canberra Footballing community.

    Was not having a go at your comp you goose!

    Stick to threads you understand or educate yourself on Canberra footy!
