Happy New Year and time for a new thread!

Dylan Stephens predicted to be our breakout player. I'm actually think Blakey is set for a big one after another Preseason under his belt.

Lazy to pick a draft pick IMO.

Expecting Blakey to continue his steady rise but I'm looking at Rowbottom, Hayward or Brand to have the real breakout season's

Dawson to make the AA squad at a minimum - the Vic media will then bang on about what a break out year he’s had, which we all know was actually 2019.

Ronke to (re)establish himself as a bona fide defensive small forward and goal sneak opportunist

Non-Vic players can't make AA on a good season alone (like it's meant to be). They have to have 2-3 good seasons in a row before they get their token AA

Jordan Dawson: “I think he is going to be rolled gold."

Just because it rhymes doesn't mean is good. "rolled gold" is a cheap alternative to real gold. Why do people keep using this as a positive idiom?
Why do they say shot on goal when we actually kick at goal , it will never end.

That totally shits me when they use that term.
At least it makes `some` sense.

Even though it's the wrong sport, in the wrong hemisphere, in the wrong time of year , localized entirely within Australia.

The stupidest is definitely 'leg speed' , what the fu** is 'leg speed' and have you ever heard anyone with an IQ greater than 2 use it?
