Can you confirm the reports that Will Day has grown 3 inches, put on 10kg of muscle, trained the house down and cured a leper on the way to training?
Will Day? pfft

Emerson Jeka is the shiznit. The queue for autographs was like an ABBA reunion.

What are the timeframes on possible reinfection though? Surely they'd get a good few months of immunity from being double vaxxed and having had it once.
My sister has had it twice 5months apart.
Living in London.
She is fine. Maybe a little more annoying.

Anyway, enough about Covid, everyone is flying, ELITE TRAITS ON SHOW, Ready to EXPLODE!!1


Seriously though, despite how much I like arguing on here it’s just good to see footy up close and personal again, and now looking forward to some real games starting and watching the young blokes kick on.

Goater is 79KGS

I was referring to your ‘prospective’ point. I don’t see weight as such major contributing factor in a player sliding or not worthy of a top 5 pick if they clear have the talent. If he did supposedly weigh 65kg (which I doubt), it doesn’t take long for that to build up. He is already listed now at 79kg. So other than weight, what makes Day a ‘prospective’ pick?

Just had covid. You're told 1 month by official sources (including the text you get from CHO number), so you'd assume it's 2 months

Day was nowhere near the top 15 before Twomey got wind of the fact that he was being looked at heavily by Hawthorn around 2 weeks out, was going to be picked up, just not perhaps that early

Goater was around the top 20 for most of last year, and and some point was even top 15, and by prospective picks go, hardly one @ pick 22 in comparison (R1 v R2)

Twomey wrote an article in the post-draft relaying that GWS were weighing up taking Day at 4, but instead opted for Ash - most likely on the basis of how raw Day was.

They visited Gippsland pair Caleb Serong and Flanders three days before the draft but neither was really in their plans at No.4 given Jackson or Ash was set to be available. Half-back Will Day was also high on their thoughts near this range.

I am genuinely interested in seeing how rose colored your glasses are now.

If you had to rank Will Day, Luke Jackson and Matt Rowell from 1-3, how would you rank them?
Tough by stats and as a player Day is as good. Rowell wasn’t good this year but dominated last year. Jackson didn’t do either but he’s been consistently good in a premiership side.

Answer for now is Jackson ahead of both and Rowell has the ceiling (shown already). Then Day for now. If Day played more games in 2021 it’d probably be a different story.

Fair point 😂 but nah he wasn’t even invited to the first night and we got him. Was a Bolter and I can see why. Because he wasn’t super athletic and his body wasn’t built well at all.
