Jack Darling

After the 2015 and 2018 GFs it looks like old mate has pissed his pants again. He could have at least done the righty and let the club trade him to Freo before pulling the pin.

At least Oscar will be able to play as a permanent forward and hopefully drop less chest marks.

Good on him

Mon, 2022-01-24 02:00

Maybe he's been looking at the real world data and isn't too impressed with the latest numbers from NSW showing how ineffective the jabs are.
Latest NSW Covid-19 Health report (release 20/1/22) for the week ending 8/1/22 Cases by vaccination status;

159,127    Two effective doses
      779    No effective dose (which even includes 1st dose 0-13 days)

Or maybe he has seen for his age demographic, so far in Australia, his average chance of dying from Covid-19 per year calculates out to be less than 0.00003% (or less than 3 in a million chance).

Classic, "Who thought we'd see an eagle refuse drugs" lol

At the end of the day it's his body, looks like WC got on the front foot with a bit of pressure hoping he would drop the ball and retreat.

Going to be pretty hard to do anything with McGowan mandating booster after booster, still pissed at him for wasting 2 years not getting our hospital system up to speed.

Poor ol Darling, just never quite made the grade in the eyes on WC fans.

 Good evening fellas...

 

Good to see the same old faces same old places...

 

I actually think Jack is trying to keep his win/loss percentage record in tack?!

 

While it is un Australian to kick a lady when she's down, by jingos the Eages are in some strife...

 

My eldest son is 7 and was an Eagle until last year when he became a Melb/Dogs supporter, I'm really hoping this is the year that he decides once and for all that he needs to support a winningish team and jumps interstate, preferably into the Brown and Gold....

 

Going to be an interesting year for the Eagles, Good for them to have Optus back as a home ground but it still feels like a mountain too high to be playing finals this year...

 

The Dorkers will go alright but still a year or two away from contention...

 

Anyone know the score from the Freo WC praccy match??

 

Carn the Hawks...

 Hi Skull,

 

I hear it was the pies that were the better team that day, I also heard the last 2 of the 6 quaters was both our VFL sides mostly on the park...

 

I reckon the Hawks and Pies will finish in that mid range this year with neither anywhere near a flag...

 

Yeo out for a month and Dom Sheed out for most of the season by the sounds, not that I rate him very highly, he's just another pre season casualty for the Eagles who don't seem to be able to get much going their way atm.

Bit of a shabby pre season for the Eagles thus far

Mon, 2022-02-28 21:50

 Hopefully they can pull a 2018 and answer the critics with a miraculous premiership, though it looks like a tough task ahead if I'm realistic about their prospects this year .

Will be good to see some Youngbloods getting a few games under their belts with all these injuries I guess.

Frockers fans will be getting excited after that scratch match no doubt and their team should finish higher on the ladder than the Eagles this year, though they have a habit of crushing the dreams of their supporters lol.

Anyway, hopefully I can get out fishing in the not too distant future and catch something. Been so long I have almost forgotten what it's like to catch a fish as I have been focusing on gold prospecting since 2020. Look forward to the footy banter and Frosty's pearls of wisdom, Boon's  in depth analysis, lots of Eagles bashing by Skull and co etc .

 I'm not at all optimistic about the Eagles chances this year, what with all the injuries and bloody stupid Jack listening to the tinfoil hat brigade! Probably wish they had held onto Jarrod Brander now. Would have been useful.

Boon - it'll be interesting how the Hawks go under Sam Mitchell. Not a lot of people have good things to say about him as a bloke but time will tell if he's a good coach. He's certainly got a pretty impressive group of assistants around him.

Being realistic, I can't see us pushing out of the bottom half of the bottom 12. Injury and premature retirements of Shep and JD aside, winning the ball in the middle and delivery into our forward 50 with Kennedy being the only real target is my main concern.

If we do bottom out we'll at least go into the trade and draft period with a strong hand with picks and a warchest from the approx $2.5m we'd have been paying Darling, Shep, Hurn and JK.
