    He'll be a lot better now he's out of Geelongistan!
    Then there's the influence of our football club.
    May not get the Coleman this year but once he settles...

    Thank you for coming onto our board to tell all of us that Kersten :

    1) Isn't a great mark

    2) Has no defensive pressure

    3) Isn't very mobile

    4) Has no stand out attributes that will make him a player

    5) You don't think he has it

    6) Doesn't have the tools to become an AFL level player

    7) Will stand out in the WAFL

    8) Is a beautiful kick but can't get the ball

    What do you see his trade value was ?

    Might need two seasons to do it. Kicked 111 goals in 43 VFL games in 5 years on Geelong's list.

    Hope he kicks a few sausage rolls next year, especially round 1 against the pussies ;)

    Hahaha

    I'm guessing he was one of their fans going ballistic because we only offered pick #63, be interesting to see what he thinks :D

    Don't know about anyone else, but my Norton is saying this is a known dangerous site - may be worth avoiding...

    Tell Norton not to be afraid of widgets. It's a page on the AFL website. He might prefer this

    I recommend ignoring it.

    I don't run antivirus software, but I would suppose that Norton (or whatever) would simply caution against sites that have custom TLDs (i.e. .afl).

    I thought he played really well on Saturday, good positioning and leading. He also has good strength and I'm so glad he had a better game as I think he and Mcarthy are going to make quite a potent forward line. Hope he plays a blinder this week.

    Well done Shane, I preferred Mills' though. Not only is it courageous but tracking the ball backwards like that makes it the more impressive grab. That type of mark is always underrated.

    I'm sure you're right - I am probably over cautious because my laptop is my livelihood. I might open it on the Surface just in case :)

    Just watched Mills' mark again and you're right. Unwavering focus under pressure with no thought for his own welfare and his courage was exemplary. Shane scored higher in the entertainment stakes for sheer excitement value and classic aerial display.

    AFL site - and app - should be avoided at all costs.

    His last two games have been solid. The freo faithful have never been too kind to recruited fowards. I for one have been very supportive(even to jack anthony)..and just hope to see that we can have one that stays for 10 plus years.

    Its great we recruited two kpf in one off season, hoping that keeps the pressure off each individual.

    Looking at Kersto and Cam doesn't exactly inspire confidence but they are starting to vibe together. Mark of the week will help with confidence.

    A bit too early to remove him from the shame pile.

    I would've said it's a bit too early to add him, let alone remove him. :huh:

    He's no Taberner who's had 5 years to continually get our hopes up and knock them down just when you think he's turned a corner.

    Granted, he might've fluffed a few marks in his short career so far here, but i'm pretty sure the other 3 trade inclusions have too..

    If he could get games in a side that actually had some forwards in Geelong, he'll be an worthy addition to our forwardline. In the short term at least.

    He'll be fine.
