So in an intra club for Brisbane JoeD has kicked 3 goals in the first quarter matched up on Harris Andrews

He hasnt missed a beat with training

How do we stuff things up so badly
Maybe we didn't stuff too much up, maybe Joey just didn't want to be here?

I think BrunoV touched on this but a bloke who has supposed OP in a crucial part of his body came back with the same spring, speed and agility he had pre OP is confusing to say the least.

Makes you wonder, did he really want to be here? He did ask for a trade 12 months earlier

Makes you wonder a lot about his last 2-3 years at the club

We can't help that Daniher is a spooge.

What we stuffed up was not trading him at the end of 2019.

I don't want this story to break because I want to embarras Daniher. It's list management that needs to be shamed.

We literally paid a guy to sit around doing nothing for about 18 months after he stoped playing because he didn't want to play and then he made his point by going to meet with another club. We still didn't listen.

Cost us a first round pick.

What's done with Daniher is done. No point worrying about it now. Plus ultimately he didn't want to stay so nothing we could do.

That said - he's still going to be a huge injury risk going forward even if right now he is flying.
The other consideration is Daniher's always dominated in preseason intra club matches because you can't really beat his physical qualities without being physical and grounding him which players always do during the regular season. Plus we all know what his goal kicking is like on a normal day.

So hey i'll stick him in my supercoach team for cheap and hopefully he'll make some points for me. Other than that - I'm not concerned.

I really thought I’d be a good bloke with Daniher leaving. Take the high road and wish him success.

The. first report comes out and I am like you MF haha. If he keeps this up it’s gonna be a long year getting trolled by my mates with Daniher highlights

I reckon his only injury ‘risk’ for the Lions is between Daniher’s ears - the same one we had to try and deal with

Nah even if he wasn't totally happy at Essendon his injury was very real - he didn't miss all that footy because he just didn't feel like playing footy whilst at Essendon. I'm sure being in rehab for years was no fun at all.

I thought he looked sore after playing just a few games in a row last year and they were reduced time length games and we rested him one of the weeks.

Besides the mental side of the game really impacts. You only have to look at other talented players like Hogan and Beams to see that even if you are a damned talented player it can be hard to overcome your issues sometimes.

I think a team like Brisbane can afford to manage the problems that Daniher brings. Plus they are in their premiership window so they can afford to take a risk to take them to the next level. Even if we still had Daniher and he was back to his best we'd probably still only be mid table.

Moving forward I think there arer six guys I would like to see gone after this season at least.

Hooker - Retired/Free agent - Been a great servant but time has passed.
Zaka - Retired/free agent/Delisted - Not the future and holding others back at this point.
Ambrose - Free Agent/Delisted - What does he give us that the younger group don't?
Cutler - Delist - What a waste of a list spot
Phillips - Hopefully our other young rucks have taken over main backup duty by the end of this season.
Hurley - Trade to make room for Reid. Could be a valuable piece for a contending team who need an extra leader in the backfield.

Well that in itself is an issue and mistake made

I have no doubt that Joe actually didnt want to be here and maybe exaggerated injuries to be away from the club whether playing/training

I want to see his best. It was a rare delight and hard to see now. Since buddy at his best its been missing in the comp

Its a shame it came to this and the club should be disappointed

All this talk about Joe has what to do with possible recruits to our senior list in 2021?

Hell, let’s talk about the impact wanganeen had on us leaving at the end of 96?

I never doubted for a moment that I'd be salty.
