AFL Crows don't take Dangerfield bait

  • AFL Crows don't take Dangerfield bait

The Adelaide Crows aren't taking the Geelong baiting of their superstar midfielder Patrick Dangerfield.

Dangerfield and his Crows teammates travel to play Geelong on Saturday with the Brownlow medal fancy's future unclear.

Geelong, based near Dangerfield's home town Moggs Creek, are courting the dynamic onballer and there is reportedly a campaign for Cats supporters to cheer him during the match.

Dangerfield has been photo-shopped in a Geelong jumper by the local newspaper but his teammate Josh Jenkins says the Crows couldn't care less.

"It couldn't be further from my mind and the team's mind," Jenkins told reporters on Monday.

"We have dealt with it all year and that is just a circumstance of football these days.

"Pat's performances for us, we couldn't ask for any more from him.

"We'll let those people do that sort of stuff and won't worry about it."

Dangerfield, a restricted free agent when off contract at season's end, has said he is yet to decide his future.

The 25-year-old has been in brilliant form, helping the Crows secure a finals spot.

Adelaide thumped second-placed West Coast by 57 points on Sunday, kicking eight goals to none in the opening term.

"The way we played in the first quarter, it was exhilarating to be out there, it was just awesome to be a part of," Jenkins said.

"That just showed us as a group what we're capable of if we put our minds to it."
