First rumour on the Suns board that they’ll announce Lukosius re-signing next week.

Strange time to announce it.

And it’s coming from someone who hasn’t posted any rumours or anything like that before.

Doesn't seem all that strange. They get the good news overload of their number 2 re-signing along with bringing in a pick 1 and pick 2 in the same news cycle. Means a lot of the talking heads will be talking about how important and/or positive this draft period has been for the Suns.

Wow, I mean they already had such a great collection of players with such a great future and now Lukosious re-signs.
It says a lot about the future of club.
It does.
And they're just about to bring in the first and second pick in this draft.
They are.
It's exciting times for Suns supporters.
It is.

Great for the suns. Remember how good that feeling is retaining players you've put games into in the face of bigger clubs they assume they can just pillage who they please. Suns could really start moving up.
Really pleased to hear this. (Lukosius)

Partly coz I'm sick of the Suns being cannon fodder but also partly coz the self entitled big Vic/ SA clubs aren't getting it all their way anymore

Or self entitled fans.

Right now there’s some really d!ck Richmond flogs winding GWS up about getting Green in two years because he comes from Tiger Royalty.

Like how Carlton fans were winding up GWS that cogs was about to become Carlton royalty this off-season? Looks like both expansion teams have much better cultures than generally credited for so we can probs look forward to some tiger tears in two years (something has to go against them right...)


Anyway, stoked for the sun's. First the king signing and now this, what a great sign

Lukosius, King and Rankine were all touted as potential go-home risks pre-draft. It just shows that if the club gets its act together it can beat the player drain. Well done to the Suns and the three players concerned. Can only help to keep guys like Rowell and Anderson. Will be a very strong outfit in a year or three.

Doesn’t mean they won’t do a Schache.

Yeah they re-signed 4 top 10 picks a couple of years ago and nek minute one is at the Hawks
To be fair, he was the one they didn’t want and had issues with.

It came down to the last game of 2017, GC only had 23 fit players to pick from, and Scrimshaw was the player left out.

Schache may have his issues, and we may be disappointed with the outcome of pick 2, but this level of vitriol is unwarranted, IMO.
...I and many others I know think the same about Schache BR. He has a gentle demeanour about him that doesn't seem right on a footy ground imo. He plays like he doesn't want to hurt or be hurt.

Saying he is the softest player isn't being vitriolic, I don't mean it to be at all, to me it's just the opposite of a player who we regard as the hardest player going around. Some look like they belong on the footy field, some don't, I see Schache as one of those.

Saying someone is "the hardest player going around" is a compliment. Saying that a footballer is the "softest player ever" is a disparaging, keyboard put down. Schache has moved on and time for us to do the same.

Valleys. Chelsea.
FWIW I thought Schache was more aggressive in the games I saw this year, he'll never be Jono Brown level aggressive but I think he could be a serviceable lead up target at AFL level and have a reasonable career.
