Our Midfield needs urgent addressing, But we also need to look for a long term replacement for kennedy in 2-3 years time. Unfortunately the form of WCE players seem to fall off a cliff rapidly. I reckon travel is the number 1 factor.

Is Waterman the answer? maybe, but isnt he the same height as Darling. If we do get M.Gov, then he has a few years under Kennedy developing his craft before being the No.1 fwd. We do have Allen, but i think he has been injured most of his career.

We can't have Kennedy, Darling, M.Gov & Waterman AND resting ruck in the same forward line.

Waterman on the Eagles site is listed at 190cm so is even smaller than Darling (who IIRC is 191/192). But at the same time is only one cm shorter than Mitch McGovern.

Definitely couldn't fit those five into a forward line together. Probably struggle to fit 4 unless it is Naitanui and Waterman has a presence like Darling in his first few years where he chased down anything that moved (and Darling returned to that form)

It would cost us too much to get him and, as good as he can be, we need to focus on the midfield. As for Hagdorn, if he reported that the sky was blue, I would have to go outside and check.

Apparently Freo have offered Mitch a 5 year deal around 750K? He'd be on more than JK. :lol:

Tom Rockliff wants 4 years at 800K, he has been offered 3 by the Lions. I'd take it.

Failo are paying based on potential...and the dire need to increase their scoring output. Kersten is a bit of a hack, McCarthy not consistent.

Yeh Rockliff should just take whats on offer by Brisbane, i would not want to give him that much.

Apparently Adelaide are upping their $350k per year offer.

If they upped it to 550k, surely mitch would stay, he's more of a chance at a cup at the crows then freo.

Vickery or Mayne for recruit of the year?

https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/tyr...a29b3766640f94

Both: $500k a year salary
Mayne: 2 goals from 3 games
Vickery: 2 goals from 6 games

It is quite funny because every single person who follows footy (media & fans) kind of went "what the" when these deals were signed.

I hope Mayne sticks firm on his contract...a contracts a contract.

I love the story the Buckley thought that they had signed Mundy...and Mayne turned up. :) Mayne should stick it out. A contract is a contract. Also my understanding is that if the Pies negotiate a buy-out then the entire buy-out is included in the salary cap for the year.
Vickery may yet come good. He has had a bit on non footy stuff on his mind this year...
