TOPIC: For Real?

Jack Redden who wants out of Brisbane has apparently let it be known that his preferred destination is to slimeland.

Perplexing as that is it does seem that they can get players willing to come here. Yeo, who is admittedly form W.A. but Redden is from S.A.

I hated reading that post a week or so a go that mentioned how Yeo was a Docker supporter who was very keen to come to us, but Toast's presentation and interest in him was far more professional. BLOODY BOND!

Im not sure what makes the slime so attractive but one thing is for certain, if they end up there - they deserve each other

CA, The Slime traded pick 28 to Brisbane for Yeo in 2013.
It's fair to say Freo would have had to give something similar or better. Freo got Apeness and A.Pearce in their first two 2013 Draft picks.
Brisbane used their pick 28 for Lewis Taylor who has been far more than handy for Brisbane.

If you listen to the media hype about Yeo, then you would believe Freo and Brisbane missed out, and the Slime got the best of that deal.
Me personally, I think all three clubs, Brisbane, the Slime and Freo all faired well and should be happy with no regrets.
(NB: Brisbane have history of losing WA players and they take these very personal).

As posted previously, Yeo is an excellent contested mark, is athletic and can be used as a utility player. But his disposal can be poor and turnovers and frees against are frequent. In late May, Slime supporters and media were talking him up as a Brownlow contender. His best game was his first +25 disposal game in his career and that was 29 disposals (and 4 goals) in Round 7 vs Gold Coast. The thing is, in that game Priddis had 39 disposals and 2 goals, Masten had 43 disposals. Yeo's next best game was R15 vs Adelaide when he had 26 disposals (& 3 goals). In that game, the Slime had 8 players with 26 or more. Gaff had 36 disposals and 3 goals.

I'm just saying, Yeo is good, but not (yet) as good as many believe (due to typical Slime media hype).
Gone to bigfooty where there's fewer Docker Haters.

The frustrating thing is that we could have taken him in the draft. Instead in that draft we only got Stephen Hill, Hayden Ballantyne, Nick Suban, Zac Clarke and Mchael Walters.

Useless.

So Yeo is only half as good as anyone in the Fab Four?

If someone wants out of Brisbane to join West Coast, you send the dog straight to his bags when he got off the plane.

Brisbane are a basket case. What is their demise attributable to? I don't think you can blame it all on Voss.

Are they a victim of the AFL's expansion policy?
