    Pardon my general lack of any understanding of technology but why do you say that? Is it just a general slag off at AFL sites or are they dangerous?

    Dangerous if you have a schedule or value your time.

    I really enjoyed Fyfe's act of leadership last week, knew Kersten was short of confidence and dished one off in the square to get him going, hopefully kick starts him for the rest of the year.

    Liked his game today.
    Got on his bike and presented up on the wing a lot, also loved how EVERYTIME he got it he moved it quickly.
    Some of his long handballs today were terrific.

    With Wiz on this. That 20 metre handball was superpowered. Also like how he went with a high undercut just to make Cam feel less awkward around the kids.

    Yes his first two games sucked but we snagged one here my friends.

    This. Surely it can't just be a "whoever is closer" type deal. Almost choked when Kersto had it in the last. Reckon he did too!

    Loved the contested grab on the wing followed by play on Michael Voss hand ball in the last.

    Thought he was good against port too. It was just that damm game against his old side which sucked.

    It was baffling how many wanted him gone after round 1. Has shown demonstrable improvement every week :thumbsu:

    Pick 66. Bargain. We brought in 4 best 22 players last year. All were bargains. It was an amazing off season.

    Would love to target another couple of 21-23 year old WA boys wanting to come home.

    We'll be getting rid of Suban, Dawson, Ibbotson, Ballantyne, Johnson for a start. Our transition doesn't need to take so long with the reasonable youth we currently have.

    We traded like Japan did with Charlie Court.

    I said it in another thread but I want Lobb. GWS have players coming out of contract, pressure on their salary cap and plenty of talls.

    Didn't he extend his contract to 2019 last year? He would've been coming out of contract this year, but pretty sure he signed on for an extra 2 years late last year. Unfortunately.

    Think we had a crack at Lobb and Hogan and both were signed up? Or does Lobb come out of contract this year?

    Our 4 recruits have all shown enough to suggest they were great pick ups for what we gave up.

    Kersten and Hamling were both bargain basement prices. McCarthy was always a potential great pick up and early signs are he'll be a great pick up. Been pleasantly surprised at Brad Hill. Was fearing a Jetta type home coming, but he has in my mind been one of our consistent best players.
