Oliver has absolutely requested to come to Carlton. News will only filter out if a deal can be done. Until then all parties will keep quiet about it.
This must be how those Carlton ITK's keep their flawless records. They can't be wrong if all parties are conveniently going to keep things quiet in the event that it doesn't happen.

Mouthbreather Lloyd on Sam Weideman: "Toughen up Sam, you have all the talent in the world, but you’re kicking 10 goals a season and getting dropped because you’re not physical enough."

Nothing wrong with his physicality; I really enjoyed his willingness to crash packs this year. He really just needs to clunk a few more of the opportunities he gives himself. Lloyd obviously hasn't seen Sam play in a couple of years.

Seriously it amazes me about how little football these campaigners actually watch

He didn't get dropped this year and being physical isn't his problem

I guess it goes to show that the good ex AFL players with a good football brain go into coaching, development ext. The dickhead who just happen to be good players go into the media and dribble sh*t with no consequences for being wrong

He did improve, but dropped away a bit as the season went on. Needs to maintain his level from this year though, so maybe it's good he gets a media rocket every now and then?

which is fine, but when someone in the media gives him a rocket it would be good if it actually sounded like they were giving him the rocket for a reason. Not just dribble on as if they are describing another player

It's not hard for them to do the research

"you're kicking 10 goals a season"

Kicked 19 goals this season ...
(He may have meant averaging over his career, but talking about a season average goals for a young key forward is equally as absurd)

Think LLoyd just hates Melb. Anyway the way i saw Weidemans' season was off to a slowish start , partly as first time as No1 key forward, got better as the season progressed , could have looked even better with a few more goals but his pack crashing was good , got a bit tired by the last 4-5 rounds maybe as the wear and tear took over. He needs to keep improving no doubt , especially holding a few more grabs , but overall i was happy with his progress .

Weids drop off came when he had no help down there with either Jackson or TMac both out. that's not his fault, he was going along quite well up until then, but he found it harder as the solo key target which is understandable.
i've got no worries about Weid when he's got another key forward playing alongside him who is actually dangerous enough to draw a key defender and give Weid and Fritsch more even contests more often.
now that could be Ben Brown or Jackson, but Preuss and Mitch Brown weren't the answer at the end of this year. TMac was ok when he was able to take contested marks, but then seemed to have forgotten how it was done the last 2 years.

Not to mention that in his first couple of years, The Weed, had iron deficiency problems, which meant that i was difficult to put on any decent size .Would the "Velvet Sledgehammer" be as good if he had those same iron deficiencies?

Bluemour thread a good read. Most concede they aren’t getting Oliver. However most think he’ll nominate them next year. One poster thinks no news is good news and he’s hopeful Oliver gets there this year.
Another thinks As they’ve prioritised Williams and Saad Oliver will have to wait. I’m pretty confident Oliver would have been prioritised over both should he have actually wanted to get there.

Not sure if this enough for Brown?

View attachment 1001546
Haha, I was wondering how long this would take, they were talking about the Brown deal on TR this arv, and SOS just dropped Brayshaw in there as a way North might be able to get more value, even tho they all agreed Hawthorn's 2nd was about right. The suggestion was that they'd probably be giving back our 1st rounder to make it happen, not us giving them another one.
