Motlop is actually more a natural small forward than any other player on the list

Fisher - HHF as a junior and that's how he should be used
Owies - Was a mid before he transitioned to basketball
Honey - More a hit up HF, than a traditional small forward
Durdin - Played the majority of his junior footy as a mid, but size forced him to play forward in his final junior year
Physique of young Rod Ashman...we can dream on that.

thats why they have a list, in case others they want are taken first :think:

gotta cover all bases
Like Jesse himself, suspect we sold a few clubs a bit of candy, by overplaying our interest in McDonald.

You wouldn’t call a Tinder date 3 times per week. That coupled with Voss’ convo 0.5 seconds after the pick went through leads me to believe Motlop was our priority all along.

If only !!!

Had the privilege of playing on the great Rod Ashman in an inter school game back in his Golden Square HS days. I never been so close to the ball without touching it.

Edit: Actually I'm telling a lie there as I did throw the ball back to him once when I was standing on the mark.

You draft your small forwards to the end of your rebuild and that is exactly what we have done. I don't know about being ready to go round one but he will probably put his hand up. We have quickly gone from having no small forwards to having depth in this area.

Durdin will play every game he is fit, make no mistake about that he's got it. Honey will be much the same. Owies might and Motlop might.

It's going to be nice to see our forward line's defensive structures set right and a group of players with genuine pace and intent to tackle who can also kick goals when their moment comes.

A young small forward just has to come in and compete, chase, tackle and work really hard and kick the odd goal. A lot of them make it early on their speed and their efforts and I can see him doing that.

We have had a forward line that has been one of the easiest to exit in the AFL, it's going to be exciting to see that change and turn around.

If you want to watch Jesse the broadcaster go on to YouTube and search “ deadly discusions”. You will find his account to which you should then subscribe.
Happy viewing Baggers!

Welcome Jesse

I spoke to a colleague today who has a son who played school footy with Jesse at Aquinas this year. He said he was standout in most games but struggled a little bit in the 2 finals for South Freo colts. He also said he can be a little bit lazy at times but should sort that out once he is in a AFL program.

A lot of players coast on their talents. The whole media podcast thing he has going as well has me feeling (without knowing the kid at all) maybe he has a penchant for the showtime and whether he makes it will come down to the stuff in between shoots and fancy footwork. Doing the hard Yakka. You know that Walsh, Crippa, Curnow and co aren't going to put up with slackers so if he is a bit lazy he will learn pretty quick. Fingers crossed aye!

can someone tell me why Motlop was linked to freos NGA. When his entire family are a football family and his dad played AFL. Do some clubs have different eligibility criteria
Because the system is yet another AFL sponsored rort that gives some clubs more advantages than others. The SA/WA clubs have basically had free access to many of the Aboriginal juniors in their states the last couple of years. Or the NM zone that gave them exclusive access to Tasmania juniors like Tarryn Thomas, etc.
