The 2018 Benfti "in absentia" Hype thread

UI hope Rioli has 8 months off.
That might freshen him up. And he might have desire to play again.
Hopefully hawks go down and we go up the ladder.

Then send a Group up over mid season break to Tiwi.
(Hooker, Shiel, Sheedy, Jake Long, Tippa, Heppell, Dodoro.

Dodoro then Picks Rioli up in the mid season draft.
We win finals.


#343

Send Hirdy too. I hear Rioli still has fond memories of training with Hirdy as a 15 yr old.

Wait

Hirdy smashed the kid in a tackle drill and broke his collar bone. Never mind.


#344

There is so many sliding doors with that injury, he was actually older than that, he missed a big chunk of his draft year and slid from a projected top 5 pick to the pick that Hawthorn got him at


#345

Hopefully Myers has a better season than Cyril in 2019.

A Norm Smith would be nice.


#346

#347

How many Tippa Essendon have!


#348

Fark me, that’s tough.
From the Tiwis to Ballarat winters.


#349

On the flipside they will be wearing so many layers of clothing the Catholic brothers at St Pats might look elsewhere.


#350

That’s a pretty low blow, man.
What?


#351

Well they are infamous for it.

Happy to delete if it’s too far, which it probably is.


#352

whoosh?


#353

Oh, low blow!


#354

And you thought you were the bad one…


#355

TBH I thought I must have really crossed the line if Deckham is pulling me up on it.


#356

Look no thumbs !!


#357

Are you talking about St. Pats in Ballarat?


#358

St Pats definitely had thumbs.


#359

#360

Me either but I was a day rat and the boarders told a few tales during my time that now raise the eyebrows


#361
