Harley catchalater Bennell

 Surely Freo will make what should be an easy decision and cut him free...

 

With the new crop of up and comers one would think its a no brainer to get rid of this problem child....

 

Unfortunately for you Harley whether this time you were in the right or not you put yourself in the situation and it could now cost you....

 

Rumours have always been its no calf problem its been ice addiction which it seems the club has done their best to help him through but if i was there i'd be letting the boy go as he obviously isn;t interested in helping himself anyway...

 

Bring on 2018 AFL!!

That's a big call - " not calf problems but ice addiction " surely you work as a journalist to make such an outrageous comment.

Freo would not take any chances on an ice addict

You only have to look at the Eagles to see how they handled cousins and no club wants that reputation.

It'd be the worst calf injury in human history if it was legit.

So whom of you were there at

Tue, 2018-01-09 13:12

So whom of you were there at the night club and saw the incident and what led to it?

So whom of you are aware of what the team rules are on socialising during the off season.

The club will investigate and take appropriate action.

Until then you are all just speculating based on media reporting.

My biggest concern out of all this is his no show at training, that is if  he was actually a no show and not kept away from the prying eyes of the media.  The no show raises concern which i hope the club addresses.

 Errm the difference is he's meant to be a proffessional footy player and one who's been given yards and yards of slack to get his shit together. If that moron can't see that he's about to blow a career by being a dickhead at night clubs then there's no help for him. No sympathy from me, plenty of other young blokes champing at the bit to have a crack at the big league, give them a shot.

Bluey Mckenna has got a lot to answer for, he partnered Harley up with Karmichael Hunt at Gold Coast to act as his mentor. Harley really took his words to heart.

Get rid of him and set the bar high for those that want to have a crack pardon the punn. 

 

He's an idiot and wouldn't get a game at any other club now....

I agree that he should be cut though.

Hate seeing a wasted talent, but one thing I hate even more is a guy who busts his gut to get into the AFL system only to fall short because of guys like Harley taking up space.

Correct me if i'm wrong here but, so he's been banished back to Peel for 8 weeks starting from now? 

 

15k fine? He wont miss that......

 

It has to be the absolute last chance, he's on his last year of his contract so one more side step from him and surely he'll be out on his ear...

Hawks or Eagles?

 

I've got a bottle of Grange on it with the Father inlaw.....

 

I'm thinking Hawks will finish somewhere between 6th and about 14th, I'm hoping the Eagles will finish about 15th :)

Gotta see pre season form first but long range I'll take a stab at both being around the 10-14 mark.

I saw Benny at a New Years Eve rave back in 1998/99 and he was having a ripper of a night busting moves with no shirt on haha.

Could be a tough year for the Eagles and no great expectations on them being "contenders" from me.

The Frockers will continue on their mediocre way .

The Hawks - well I hope they finish 18th.

BJ and Unc are keeping quiet on the Cold Pies prospects, which is probably wise with Bucks still at the helm......

Bring it on!

I just want to see Nic Nat out there feeding our on ballers again - cue the no stat haters lol.

Sat, 2018-01-13 14:55

 Gday there Gadsy....

 

Usually its the footy season that brings you here but its good to see you are still keeping your single eye on the discussions here....

 

I dont blame Bucks for the Pies recent bad run, when you have a team play in the GF you would expect them to slide, its only the very wise heads at a team like Hawks, that seem to be able to bounce back and maintain an elite squad...

 

Last year was a blip, this year we'll be back to our demolishing best...

 

Going to be an interesting year, will Richmond play finals, will the new stadium be the new house of pain or will the home ground advantage take a while for the two teams here?

 

Will Stewy Dew win a game, he probably will i suppose when he plays the Pies, Eagles and Dockers....

 

Must only be about 85 days now, not that i'm counting
