    Calling All MCC Members

    MCC and MFC need to dangle a better carrot here. Should be a section for Melbourne v. Non-MFC tennant games to get priority seating, or a tweed jacket, or pipe or Range-Rover key ring.

    AFLX - T-Mac withdraws

    Great news - TMac has withdrawn from the AFLX game. Bad News - he's having minor knee surgery. Good News - The surgery will not stop him playing JLT or miss any home & away games. Bad News - Bailey Fritsch is his replacement in AFLX. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/melbourne-swingman-tom-mcdonald-the-latest-star-to-withdraw-from-aflx-tournament/news-story/42335073cf0e7799a8e0055728f780dd

    Thanks Dee, I was feeling like a fool. I agree his disposal was not good but it was his intensity and hardness at the ball that I liked and I remember thinking that this was the new type we were recruiting and developing. But lost track of him and unlike others did not see anything of him in the VFL.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    You make a very good point: way back in the Rev era when we couldn't play finals 2 years in a row Brisbane had a tired, sore and broken side going into the 2003 Grand Final, which they went on to win easily...

    There’s the confirmation. Happy that McDonald’s pulled out; I have fewer concerns about Fritsch’s durability.

    That was a good season for him when having the opportunity. He did show some potential at the end of the training and adjusting rainbow. He hit hard, went in hard and ran well with the ball. His finishing skills were the suspect areas but, he was improving. He has deceptive pace and some height that I hope he has been able to develop. Thoroughly worth watching.

    Has this been confirmed anywhere? Mentioned on Demonland but anywhere else?

    Hell, that will be brilliant! He can be such an asset to our team as a player and as The Beast.

    I have actually talked to him about it, he knew Stewart was closing, said the roar from the crowd was like a wave crashing into him Was in two minds after second bounce, but decided just to concentrate on kicking the goal Knew about his knee issues a couple of weeks ago, but asked me to keep it to myself until after second op, disappointed but hopes the issue is now behind him

    You have not mentioned my favourite Wagner. Richard was very versatile and able to play a variety of roles. His skills were sublime, his intensity and commitment renowned, and he was able to perform on the big stage when it counted. Unfortunately, he was a bit of a prima donna who had a habit of rubbing up his team mates the wrong way. So he was not a great team player as he always demanded the ball and did not like team mates getting in his way. He also attracted some undesirable fans including a bloke called Adolf and his cheer squad. But when he played, he was sublime.

    I'm still filthy (as should he) he was overlooked in the prelim, meanwhile Tyson jogged around and picked up a massive 3 kicks and 1 tackle for the game. Hopefully he can take his game to another level year this year as he has class written all over him.

    He can watch his EF sealer against the Cats on eternal loop while he is waiting. I can still hear and feel the roar of the crowd. One of my favourite moments of my year. Can only imagine what it feels like to be the player in that moment

    Yes. Steven May and Kade Kolodjashnij could also considered an early draft pick.

    Great news. He's one bloke we don't want missing round 1.

    hey guys, just a quick question, do we have our 1st round draft pick for next season? I've really enjoyed watching sparrow train this year and miss the feeling of having an early draftee at training sessions :)

    Goody at the AFL Indigenous Conference

    Another good decision by Goody and a reflection of his values, relationship with the players and his work ethic. He is looking better and better as time goes on. Its one thing to be proud of your club but its always a good sign when you are proud of your coach.
  25. Mentioned in today's Age that Neitscke did his ACL last Friday and will miss 12 months.
