    JUDDY TO ANYONE BUT COLLINGWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am praying now the Chris Judd is heading home to Victoria that he goes to any club bar Collingwood, I could not bear to see him in Magpie colours, some come on Carlton or the Bombers get out your cheque books and sign him up.
    THANKS FOR 6 WONDERFUL YEARS JUDDY, YOUR A LEGEND

    Hell be going to Carlton.. They have much to trade...

    Pick 1, 3 and 20 in the draft... and a Billionare as the president... so some hidden back door financial sweeters will be had. While Im a Carlton supporter, I dont agree with how they went about "throwing" games for priority draft picks. The AFL rewards mediocrity.

    Re: JUDDY TO ANYONE BUT COLLINGWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im betting he will go to Melbourne. Carlton may have some sweeteners, as does Collingwood, but somehow I do not think he will go to either. Carlton have some similar behavioural issues with a few players that Judd has had to put up with at West Coast. It is my belief that he will call the shots and if he decides to play for whatever team, the eagles will do as he asks.

    lucinda, every club has there behavioural problem players... you just do not see it on every news break unless they are a star...

    Melbourne are in the mix... but the Eagles will want the best trade they can get... and #3 pick is a nice sweetner indeed... I just hope Carlton dont trade Fav... no point getting a star midfielder and have no target up forward...

    Somehow I dont think the Eagles will have any say in it. Judd will go where he wants to go. The Eagles will just have to play ball. Any half decent pick is better than no pick at all as the Brisbane Bears found out many years ago when Buckley sat out of the competition for a year to go to Collingwood. There have been other instances when players have left and gone into the draft etc leaving their club with nothing.

    But look, Brisbane Lions a few years later... 3 premierships in a row... Looks like it was Buckley who missed out... Sucked in really...anyone who goes to Collingwood is a looser ;-)

    Re: JUDDY TO ANYONE BUT COLLINGWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Buckleys childhood dream was to captain Collingwood. I will never begrudge that he left Port Adelaide for that all those years ago when we werent in the AFL.

    I can remember watching him play back in those days and he is a true champion, he played for a tough club (Port) at a time when his mentors and teachers and coaches were absolute champions and who demanded 500% from each and every player. I am proud of what he has achieved and sad that he will probably never get a Premiership medal, except for the few he got with Port Adelaide back in the SANFL days.

    He still credits Port Adelaide with making him the player he is today, and he is one of the most disciiplined players and trains harder than many other players out there.

    I am not a fan of Collingwood, but I have gone to my fair share of Collingwood games just to watch him play.

    Judd to Carlton, good decision!

    Collingwodd could not afford to lose Pendlebury or Thomas.

    Will be interesting to see how he goes with the Blues.

    Does anyone actually Play at Carlton?? Nahhhh, personally, I think that Carlton has a better chance at getting into the 2008 finals than Collingwood. Just my opinion.

    They could have this year had they not "thrown" the games in order to get #1 pick... While I love my blues, Im disgusted they lose to gain... and this is an AFL policy to encourage this. They should put a lottery for the bottom 4 for the top 4 draft picks ... have to stamp out the fudging... Look at it this way..

    Number 1 Draft Pick (Mark Murphy), Number 1 Draft Pick (Bryce Gibbs), Number 1 Draft Pick (Matthew Kruezer), Number 2 Draft Pick (Andrew Walker), Brendan Fevola and Nick Stevens. How do you keep this mob together should they develop in to game breakers ? Under Pratts payroll thats how!

    Your hubby has good taste on at least two counts then Lizzi. ;-)

    I really thought Geelong was doing a good job of training our next coach and when it was announced I thought Knights was pretty left field. Still, the club has a great history and dont make very many bad calls so I guess I just have to trust em.

    What was interesting was Matthew Lloyds reaction... he sounded pretty happy for new ideas being bought into the coachs box so maybe the player group wasnt as happy with Sheeds as the fans were?

    Nick Stevens came from Port and is a fantastic player, unfortunately, he doesnt seem to have really progressed the way he should have since he went to Carlton.

    Really sad to see. I have no idea what they are trying to do at Carlton, but it is sad to see a one great club go to pot.

    mmm, you are a smooth one, arent you.... ;)

    to be honest, Andy, LLoydy probably has to play some politics being the captain...and he does it convincingly, i suppose.
    we were just curious how the Vic Bomber fans took the appointment of the new coach.
    during our travels we have only seen two newspaper- articles mentioning of the new Essendon coach in the papers...Sheeds demise and replacement is a total non-event in the West.

    we might drop in to give Rob some sorely needed Bomber-supporter exposure....

    Re: JUDDY TO ANYONE BUT COLLINGWOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sticks was from Glenelg, but Bradley is a Port boy. Many AFL teams have former Port Adelaide Champions.

    To name them here would be boasting :P

    Lizzi - the West is pretty much a one team town and you wont hear much about the rest of the AFL clubs. Adelaide is pretty much the same. We hear twice as much about the Crappy Crows than we do about Port.

    Thats the way it is and I am quite happy for Port to quietly get on with doing the same as we did this season (maybe go one step further ::) ), we do not need our players put up on pedastals and treated as Gods.

    Can you imagine what its like in Geelong this week?? Sheeze.. I swear I can still hear the song a week later ringing in the streets and I have given-up hoping to find a non-blue and white story in the paper.

    ;)

    PS: Nathan Buckley retired (if you missed it in states that dont care)
