Brad of course has moved into the vacant room left by Bernie at Taylor's house

yeah, and Darren Jarman was a total racehorse 😜

This recruitment is more than the player at hand (he might turn out to be a Nathan Ablett) but it is a positive move that will galvanise the clubs direction. Danger (our next Captain) was tweeting his excitement as soon as  Matt's name was read out.

Welcome BOB (brother of brad)

Indeed Crouch will likely do a lot better playing with his brother rather than any other club

I really wish we had access to the full  draft camp stats, rather than just top 10.

But speed really is important- at lower levels, not so much, but slower players struggle notably at the elite level, how often do you see gun possession winners at like VFl level just do poorly at AFL level?  and Crouch's decrease in possessions in the U18 against better quality opposition are a little worrying (unless he was carrying injury? I know he got injured in TAC at one point, but I don't know about U18s).

Speed's probably one of the harder things to improve on... endurance, strength, accuracy are all aspects you could have flaws in, but would be significantly easier to improve on than like a 20m sprint time.

I heard on the grapevine that crouch's 20m sprint time was notably slow, like only just in the top 50% at the draft camp or something. Could just be a rumour though.

Dangerfield, Sloane, Brad, Matt, Griggy

Don't forget we'd have Knight, Kerridge and Lyons who can all rotate through as well    8)

Brodie Smith is looking to become a winger as well in the coming seasons


Oh and James Aish will wanna come home in 2-3 years so we might have to make room for him too   ;)

Ok so apparently Sloaney is the only midfielder at Adelaide and "Tag SLoane, beat Crows"

So, time for Brad and Matt even though playing well, if Sloane is getting tagged then the Crouch Bros NEED to step up NOW and become elite!

Or the season might be over :-\

Seems to be a glaring problem probably why you wanted Gibbs Tex said last week that Sloane needed some help in that situation but they just let him be smothered by Vince , I'm sure Sloane will work through it but you are right others need to lift to the next level or teams will just keep exploiting it

You don't give up two FDP's for anyone. Dangerfield and Beams (Uncontracted yes) but first and second round for them

Rocky will be Crow next year with Dusty and Gibbs :P

But seriously (Although I expect one or two of those to be in fruit-loops in 2018)
Atkins, Cameron, Hampton and Douglas have stepped up but are only B graders

the Crouch Bros have A-Grade potential but that has to happen very soon! Or we lose either the Gov or the Lever and sign Dusty. Maybe sign both talls nd nab Rocky or Gibbs. One of these things will happen ...........

Yeahhhh, we aren't getting Rocky or Dusty, you can give up on that right now.

Don't think Lever will be going anywhere, expecting him to sign soon, more worried about about Gov though, oh and ele, go away :P

It is official and two games to go, yes I said two :P  But Brad and Matt have the most disposal numbers ever by brothers in a single AFL season!!

Matt has cleaned his kicking and is now reliable and Brad after years of injury, has hit his top form and the brothers in arms are now IMO considered A-Graders

Matty Crouch though, will win the Malcolm Blight B&F by some margin, with my boy Lairdy second. But Matt has gone to another level and if the opp want to tag Sloaney ......  Brad and Matt will HURT you! 8)
