#10 St Francis of the Rising Star


#6406

Both were very good today.

The catch is that Francis seemed untroubled today…


#6407

So we’re to assume that he’s buggered his leg and he’s going back to Adelaide?


#6408

And he is taking Draper with him…


#6409

OH BABY DONT STOP


#6410

Is Adelaide giving us Fark Carlton’s first round pick as part of the this deal?

‘Cause it ain’t enough.


#6411

Struggled defensively in Round 1 and 3, yet was excellent in round 2.


#6412

If Petracca’s one on one contest against Francis was any indication - i wouldnt put him anywhere near De Goey.

Saad to Stephenson
McKenna to De Goey


#6413

Not worried at all about Francis on him in a one on one. That Petracca one was an anomaly, plus he had a huge fist of jumper.

On the lead is where he would struggle.


#6414

I love all the commentary around Petracca beating Hurley and Francis 1-1 and thus they can’t take DeGoey.

People know Petracca wants to win as well right?

Sometimes talented players win contests. In fact, it happens a lot… On the radio I heard Demons supporters calling for Petracca to be dropped.

So perhaps our defenders won our lion’s share of contests against him…


#6415

For some reason supporters think defenders should win every single one on one. If they let on slip through then all of a sudden they’re not up to it. It’s ridiculous. And you’re right, i was hanging out with some Melbourne supporters yesterday and they all want Petracca dropped. So they obviously saw it a little differently.


#6416

Any word on Francis?

Copped a couple of knocks but finished the game on the ground so it doesn’t sound like there’s a problem to keep him out of Saturday’s game but obviously he’s been pretty injury prone


#6417

You can get a “strain from a knock” though. I learned this recently.


#6418

At essendon a knock can be terminal


#6419

Huge if true


#6420

Aswell as Redman and Fanta.
In return the Crows will give us pick 82 and throw in David McKay as a sweetener


#6421

Do they still have Richard Tambling on their list? Throw him in with a 4th round pick and it’s a deal.


#6422

He’s kicked 2 goals in 3 weeks and looks lazy and unfit. They’d be right to drop him, lazy head wobbling ■■■■ needs a wake up call.


#6423

6 foot tall and almost 100 kegs. Not what you want from a professional athlete.


#6424

Real too content with where he’s at. It’s funny, all the talk has been about how May turned up in shocking condition… nothing about how the Dees prized Pick 2 who should be in fat camp.


#6425

Petracca is built like a tank.
