    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Tigers where brilliant today - No way you should win after jR goes down before you can even get out the bar. Looks like a repeat of last year just who are they going to play in the Grand final

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    Mr Saty. This conversation started, as I recall, after I posted some comments after the final Practice game at Casey before the start of season, Casey demolished Box Hill. You made remark that Tyson was among the best players, though I panned his disposal. For the record, I am one of many on this site who's eyeballs oscillate in opposite directions every time the Tyson lad passes to the opposition. In the end, it's my observation. You have yours. I Can we leave it at that? What is the point of arguing about Tyson?????

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Sydney do have a strong defence. Brisbane not playing too badly but they are struggling to score. Have to bring the ball in quick and accurately against swans defence.

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    Really enjoyed the game. Port were surprisingly strong even though no AFL players, they should have been well in front at end of 1st qtr. Kielty was BOG for me, wouldn’t be surprised if he gets a game some time this season. Baker looks a likely type, maybe won’t get a go this year, but has good speed and reasonable disposal skills. Tyson improved as the game went on and was a key driver in the win. Got caught holding the ball a couple of times and disposal a bit sloppy, but still looked a level above. Shout out to the Port nuffies. The abuse they hurled at the umps was pretty ordinary. Suspect the umps could hear the ‘feedback’, fair dinkum, who’d want to be an umpire.

    Because until he repents and changes his sinful ways..... Lighten up, DC, like I've repeatedly said, I like the boy, I instinctively like sinners...

    Hell NO... blues and the priority draft pick

    not just win... we need to lobby the AFL (or is that nobble the AFL) so that we are seen as the power club to replace Carlton. From the time of Dick Pratt and the "Saturday Takeover Cub" mentioned more than once by the NCSC (the predecessor to ASIC) Carlton have had the reputation of being a club for the money movers. Time to convince the AFL that those days are over. BTW I had forgotten that Fitzpatrick's fund Hastings were one of those that took a loss on Docklands. Caro mentioned it today on 3AW.

    Wallace Urges Adelaide to Target Lever

    I was at the western oval in the outer wing Grinter stuck his arm stretched out as Wallace was going for the ball. He collected Wallace with his hand closed fist but connecting first with his thumb which I think was taped because of a previous injury. Grinter smash the front of his face and broke his jaw. However Wallace played the following week with a broken jaw where his girlfriend or maybe his wife had to chew a packet gum so he can put a wad of gum in his mouth to hold his jaw together. Rod Grinter copped 6 weeks. I cannot remember the year Maybe 25 years ago? Don't hold it against me.

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    This is a very suspicious thread just like AFL will never walk away from poker machines. They are just all talk.

    @Rod Grinter Riot Squad The ground looks pretty dry and hard. Did you or anyone else who rocked up to the session have a walk on the surface?

    So you were at the game watching it live, or going on someone else's judgement, which like yours could be clouded by preconceived ideas and influences?

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    I suppose the term "winning ugly" could be used but it was not that ugly. A great across the team effort. Last quarter was probably Casey's best whereas the game could easily have been finished by Port in the first quarter. 1 goal 8 that could so easily have been 7goals 2 or the like. Garlett... okay and better towards the back half of the game... did he do enough... maybe ... would be interested in his tackle count.(As an aside he does have positioning sense. Stood deep in the forward pocet when the ball was being kicked from the 70 metre mark on the other pocket. Pack fly about twenty metres out from the goal mouth.. Garlett's opponent moves towards the pack... he stays still quick skewed kick out of the pack.. Garlett marks ... handball over the top and Balic strolls in for an easy goal. Right spot.. right time.. guess that is what makes Jeffy special.) Bugg... as a forward maybe shaded Garlett. Good mark and goal to get Casey within a few points when Port were on top in the third quarter. Kept a close eye on Balic and Baker. Balic.... building ... decent game and could be a prospect. Not as good as his opening game against Coburg. Baker... very good .. needs to back himself a little more. Quick to give off by hand or the short kick not necessarily to a team mate in a better position. Had a relatively easy shot for goal in the pressure part of the final quarter and missed badly. Keep improving and perhaps next year. Saw glimpses of Petty.. developing nicely perhaps a shade behind Baker. Kielty had a strong game. Port were excellent opposition and while unaligned are a strong unit. Very nice Burra burger and the local supporters are more one eyed than the Dolphin fans of last week... (think many of them like a drink.)

    Hell NO... blues and the priority draft pick

    The great era of Dominance for the MFC happened before TV 📺 Coverage. If we had claimed Flags in the 70’s we would be in a much better bargaining position. This current surge of form must be sustained, we can overtake the Carlscum’s and Essendrugs, if we keep winning. Hard Work yes, but nothing this club can’t do

    so why when a post said he would be gone by the end of the year you replied 'alelulia'? doesn't sound like someone "who wants him to do well".

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    And, in good form ot not, players like Tyson, Pederson, Hunt, Garrlet, Stretch, Bugg, Weid and probably a few more I'm forgetting would be walk up starts at probably 60% - 70% of the teams in the AFL. It's a nice luxury to have to be letting these guys develop in the VFL ready for a call up once they hit their straps again or we get an injury we need to cover. As you suggest it's a good indication of where we are at as a team at present.
