I'm impressed by Sonsie's highlights but before we lock him in for a spot in our team, lets see him play a few scratch matches over the preseason and even some games at the VFL level. I have high hopes for him but the kids that have been in our squad over the past few years but haven't had a chance to develop or play themselves, may surprize a few around these parts.

Competition for spots will be fierce and that can only be a good thing for the likes of RCD and Sonsie.

Nothing wrong with players celebrations and having tickets on themselves, PROVIDING they back it up with their performance.
nothing better for a kid with tickets on themselves than to get into the big leagues. If he's as good as he apparently thinks then we're all laughing and who gives a stuff if he struts around. If he's not then he'll find out pretty quick and realise that he'll need to buckle in if he wants to make it.

I was only half serious about the bow and arrow thing. I love American sports like NFL where big personalities and celebrations are common.

I think I just hate duursma's celebration because he plays for Port. Same goes for Charlie Cameron and his "Harley" at lions.

Looks like we’ve strengthened our small forward department and defence. Midfield also looks good for future. We desperately need a young tall forward. Surely we have a tall player from another club coming over in 12 months. Can’t rely on the draft once Jack retires. We’ll be waiting 3 years until they’re ready

Yeah..firstly I think it's a Vesper not a Harley..
And as for Duursma's gimmick I love how the crows fans call him Katniss

The main question is, what will his nickname be? Traditionally Australians chuck a "y" at the end of the suername.

Ergo Sonsie-y ?

It's not a pure science but generally if the name has two syllables it gets shortened to the first syllable plus an O (Johnson becomes Johno). The Y tends to go on single syllable surnames (West becomes Westy) - that said in a world of utterly barstardise English these days - almost anything goes eh Northy?
