    I agree. The future team will consist of key backmen, key forwards, rucks and midfielders who rotate with the bench, back line and the forward line. It makes it much harder for the opposition to match up on you and keeps your midfielders fresher. It appears that Longmire has this vision too.

Eddie, time to give up all those distractions that you're just not that good at ... no more President of an AFL club, no more breakfast radio DJ, no more game commentating, no more CEO of a TV channel. Stick to what you're good at, PLEASE.

    Should we add a future father/son prospect to the midfield list if he develops into a young gun?

    Allegedly Jesse Maxfield who is named on Vic Metro under 16's team sheet at 178cm, 68kg is Stuart Maxfield's son.

    Future could be looking very bright indeed...

    C'mon adam get a girlfriend ASAP and have some boys

    Father sons isn't something we've been blessed with over our history. But maybe our lucks changing. I know nothing about Jesse Maxfield. Is he good?

    I know Eddie has son/sons. How will he 'fix' the F/S rule so that they can play for Collingwood?
    I am assuming that Eddie did not play (if indeed he played at all) 100 games for Collingwood.

    I thought he may have played U19s for Collingwood. Warnie was an U19 player for St Kilda.

    Playing football is not in his genes. Any offspring of Eddie's would be duds in the AFL.......and he wouldn't want that.

    Odds on the length of time between the hypothetical future announcement of an impending Buddy Jr and the first article about the father-son tug-of-war between Hawthorn and Sydney?

    You are being unkind on Eddie. He said that he could get a game in the AFL due to the two expansion teams diluting the available talent.
