Season 2018 - Adelaide


#101

It’s looking like the Gibbs trade will turn out a disaster?

Lever and Cameron left, and it looks like it was enough to start closing their premiership window.

But then they didn’t give up. They traded two first round picks for a player, Gibbs, for one last surge, but it looks like it isn’t going to be enough to reopen the window. And worst of all, it has annoyed his team mate(s?) and made them want to leave.

The trend downwards is building…


#102

Also Brad Crouch apparently ropeable at club over how they assessed/treated his injury and its looking like season ending now


#103

Hard to be sure…on one hand lots of players want to get out of Adelaide…on the other hand you have Gibbs wanting to come, makes sense to bring him Home.

Crows woes stem from - Crouches, Sloane, Tex etc being injured.

Lever was going couldnt stop him. made mind up same as Gunstan.
Plus DoeDee has been pretty good as a replacement.
Might be a good year to tank from now and get a couple good SA kids in.
If Crows didnt bring Gibbs in then they would be closer to the bottom four now, given all their injuries.


#104

Gibbs has been outstanding, and Lever was leaving anyway.


#105

Adelaide will have three picks inside top 20 in the upcoming draft.

I reckon all three picks will be from SA.


#106

They will be looking to trade up too


#107

We should assist them then.


#108

Worked for Eddie McGuire


#109

Very productive lunch today. Aswell as the Aaron Hall info I was also told that Eddie Betts is very close to hanging up the boots at season end thanks to the pre season fiasco. He is keen to get into a football role in any capacity and is looking at moving to Melbourne. He would make a pretty good mentor or even in some coaching capacity


#110

Hopefully they find a replacement this off season or have one on the books already.
Don’t want them coming near Fanta.

Any updates on how happy Fanta is in Melbourne?


#111

How quickly a premiership window can open and shut in literally the space of a season!

They can keep their grubby hands off Fanta

Geez we’ve had a mare of a season but they have only won one more game than us.


#115

And played one more game than us too. Although given our game in hand is against WC in Perth that probably doesn’t mean much.

Arrogance and injuries
