Cholly's got the number 1 guernsey at the Huns. Maybe we should've done that to keep him motivated...:))

What happens with Gordon the Joey if the Scum don't want him?
Dunno. But what happened to Maynard ? Wasn’t someone one here suggesting he was definitely off to Melbourne ? Or Adelaide ?

Heh heh heh….

Mayden Brainhard signed again with the Scum, I think. I reckon this is all a beat-up about Gordon the Joey. Fly would be desperate to get as much out of these players as he can in his 1st year. Funny hearing the spin about him from Greedy Bundy already.

Essendon just announced their 5 year plan. Basically they just want to be Richmond.
I wish these bozos would just *smile* off and be original.

Why trade? A free agent will get them a first round pick, which will be top 3
Gooey's a Colonwood superstar. Trade him out n get #lolnorf's first pick which will probably be around the top three anyway plus maybe a future first or at least a second round pick as well.
Gotta remember it's Colonwood, they got a new coach n new Prez so they'll be pushing for a flag next year. So better to trade for an early pick rather than risk finishing up the top n only getting pick 19 as compo for him.

They can't trade until next year, when they will know their ladder position. No chance they are better than bottom 3.
And why would north give up 2 picks for him? As a free agent they open their wallet and get him without a trade

Did say that #lolnorf could get him cheaply $ wise, but you're taking my tongue in cheek rumination waaaaay to seriously Dell boy.

Only Collingwood could get rid of a trouble maker, that has less good games then Stringer and still get rewarded a first rounder as compo.
What's the Article in the Hearld sun where Wright or Buckley say they hate each other.
Buckley was never going to last without the protection of Eddie.

About time a club had an original thought.
It's the AFL, TBR. It's such an inbred competition that copying someone else is an original thought.

On extremely rare occasions someone will have a radical idea n be successful for a while, then every other club will spend ten to fifteen years copying them n wonder why they're simply going around in ever decreasing circles.

Interesting that the Hawks now have a 2050 plan. Effectively it's a master plan of 5 year plans.
But a 30 year plan is patently out of this world

Just saw the attached headline, and it had me thinking. ..... how many ACTUAL superstars are there in the competition?
Like, seriously, calling Jack Steele a superstar is a bit of a reach imo!
Biased of course, but obviously Dustin makes it in a canter. Obviously Buddy. Toby, Pendlebury and Fyfe?
I can't bring myself to type in any Geelong names!
Surely the criteria would include a fair body of work.
Interested to know what others think.

Reminds me of the Seinfeld line from the Mendelbaum episode: " I don't know how official any of these rankings really are".

Personally I think you can be a superstar on accumulated achievements or by being in the best players in the competition at a given time. I'd have Steele in that category as one of the best going around at the moment.

Obviously we’re all biased, but I think Jack R would classify for superstar status.
