#5 Devon Smith - Best and Fairest


#963

Yep. Salty Geelong supporting journo. Sat next to him once at a Dons vs Cats game and he wasn’t impressed when I stood up to cheer.


#964

Haha. Love this guy.


#965

Dev certainly does not suffer fools gladly with regard to the media - or perhaps in modern parlance he appears to give very few farks. It’s quite good to watch,


#966

Should do all player media appearances going forward.


#967

biggest figjam since reimers, bigger than the package


#968

Can’t recall the last time we had so many players with such confidence.

F%$k next season is going to be a blast!


#969

i honestly reckon he could be one of these guys who gets 25+ and a goal or two most weeks


#970

To be fair, recent events have knocked some of the stuffing out of the Package.


#971

Did somebody in hear say this bloke is a Brownlow Smokey???
:joy:


#972

At long odds he would be worth some money.

He would be paying well over $100 and if he adapts to midfield like I think he will and continues to kick goals he could catch the eye. Our midfield lacks flashy players so I cant see why he wouldn’t be a chance.

Even more so if we win lots of games.


#973

Same, can’t wait to see him run out for us come round 1


#974

There’s a reason why he’s be long odds…


#975

I think you missed the memo about hyping up players in off season only to bring them down a few pegs during the year.


#976

I agree.
He averaged basically 20 disposals and 5 tackles a game for the last 4 years without even playing midfield, so there’s every chance he can be a ball magnet woh more time on ball.


#977

So we are penciling him in for the kind of output achieved by about 3 players in the competition.

Welcome to Essendon kiddo


#978

welcome to Essendon - we have boundless hype to share


#979

As well as endless negativity.


#980

The bigger problem is, too many other players will be taking votes off him, and each other of course.


#981

Was trying to think of nickname, so Smith comes from origin of blacksmith, so full metal, so full homage to AC/DC, I think Thunder


#982

Or THOR
