Re: 2013 Draft November 21

Adelaide have very little chance of getting pick 2 - they would need to trade Dangerfield, Walker, Sloane or Crouch..and thats very unlikely.

Re: 2013 - Player retirements/delistings/trade discussion

Polec has said he is happy to come to whichever club can do Brisbane the best deal
He has said nothing like that. He will announce he wants to be traded to Adelaide next week . But if deal can't get done. Crows will get him for nothing in the pre season draft

..apparently not.

Re: Crows Disgrace

That "author" - and I use the term loosely" - failed to mention anything at all about all the non Port people, eg Kevin Sheedy, Leigh Matthews, as well as the non Port people on this forum, who can't believe the stupidity of this marketing gimmick.

So yes, that column is irrelevant, which pretty much sums up the Crows in the context of SA football history over the last 140 years.

Re: Crows 2014

According to Sanderson their forward line is the envy of the AFL competition.

He also said they wil celebrate Reilly's 200th with a win when he makes his way back into the side one day.

I dont think he really meant for those comments to come across the way they did. I suspect he was trying to inject dome optimism after their loss against Melbourne.

However, I would think that he needs some type of media training, because at times he comes across as way out of his depth. Not to mention his lack-lustre game day efforts of late.

I think Collingwood will win by about 7 goals tonight.

Re: Port 2014 - Pre-Season/General Discussion

The Eagles would go after Sandgroper Mason Shaw if they could - unless this lad wanted to desperately return to Perth (and I don't believe this is likely), there is no way we'd let him go though.

I think a Newton for Lycett swap would be reasonably likely to occur (with draft picks somehow thrown in as well), although I suspect the Eagles won't be as easy to trade with, compared to the Ebert trade a few years back.

Newton does get a lot of the ball, does seem to struggle a bit with disposal accuracy at the higher level at least, although this may be a case of requiring time to get accustomed to the speed of the game.

Re: Fixtures 2015

Rumours circulating that Port will open up the season with:

Fremantle (a), Tingles (a), Sydney (h), Hawthorn (h).

Could potentially start the season 1-3...

should start 4 - 0

port beat freo last time over there
port seemingly way too good for the crows (source port propaganda radio)
port to beat Sydney easily (seemingly if port had made the grandfinal they would have thrashed Sydney as well) - (source port
propaganda radio)
Port to beat Hawthorn easily (port only loss by 3 points at the mcg so playing them at home should win easily - (source port propaganda radio)

but seriously the hardest game there is freo over there but they did win last time. Don't Sydney and Hawthorn usually start slowly at the beginning

Yeah, there's no "propoganda" whatsoever from AFC- appointed Crows Ambassadors in the media such as Kym Dillon, Stephen Rowe etc etc.

Ask any neutral supporter in SA (ie. doesn't barrack for Port or the Crows), and they will tell you which club runs the propoganda machine in this state.
