Season 2018 - Sydney


#422

Don’t think towers has kicked a goal against us.

He is a ducking spud though. Too tall for mid, too slow for mid, too short for KPP, too ■■■■ for AFL


#423

The NEAFL grand final where Southport cheated versus Sydney and got away with it is currently being shown on NITV. The fun bit is just after three-quarter-time, and will occur very roughly at 11 o’clock.


#424

He’s what would once have been described as a ‘utility’ but Jack off alltrades, master of none’ is a fairer description.

He can put together a few episodes, struggles with the whole series.


#425

Sydney have picked up North Melbourn’s Ryan Clark for pick 61.

Don’t know a lot about Clarke but he has played 40 games across 3x seasons since being drafted at 31 in the 2015 National Draft and averages just under 20 disposals per game. Nearly half of his career tally was accumulated last season (19 games). 184cms and 87kgs.

Can’t say I’ve noticed him play. Can anyone shed any light on him?


#426

Half back ish, nice kick

Utterly unlike his brother.


#427

You left out ‘awful haircut’.


#428

Haircut is pretty ordinary and it doesn’t look long before he goes the full Tom Harley.

Reckon I was 21 when I could no longer deny that baldness was in my immediate future. When I see Shaun Micallef or Paul McDermott’s wigs I do feel significant pangs of jealousy however, I know blokes who were going bald at 18 so 21 wasn’t so bad.

Hopefully having hair (or not) doesn’t impact on his footballing fortunes.


#429

The Swans are done as a top 4/premiership force. They need a rebuild, but in that market and having invested 9 years and $10 Million into Buddy they probably feel like they can’t…


#430

Clarke’s got a ways to go before he reaches the heights of some guys from the Valley


#431

The Swans list build has always been to get rid of the bottom four or five players and replace them with better ones.
They always try to stay competitive regardless of the situation.

I think they’ll be fine. Heeney and Mills were pretty much freebies due to their academies. And they’ll both be very good players at the worst case.

They are still one of the best at getting something from their rookie picks. Ronke was a find this year and I’m sure O’Riordan will have as good a year next year as Ronke.


#432

I was about to start fav win of the year thread (if it hadn’t been started already.
This was my favourite win of the year.
Wankers


#433

Another 10 or so consecutive wins and the ledger for the past decade will be all square…


#434

Fixed.


#435

10 consecutive games in Victoria and the ledger would be even more skewed than it currently is. Careful what you wish for, boomerang boy.


#436

Langdon re-committed to Collingwood. I’m still not really sure why Sydney were after him.


#437

They want to release Mills and co into the middle.


#438

They can do that now.
