    Training - Monday, 10th December 2018

    Bloody Hell. It’s near the end of a 2hr session. Frosty has gone down to a goal square in his own with a bag of balls. Wondered what he’s doing. He’s kicking torps that are almost hitting the bloody cross in the centre circle. One went off the side of his boot. We’ll call that the 2018 Prelim Finals kick. I’ll call the centre circle ones the 2019 GF kick.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    Sorry expert but I asked, interrupted pre season is where they are off legs and it impacts their fitness base The craft sessions etc are there to refine their skills, if we have 2nd and above year players who can't handball, kick or don't understand the game plan, then you need to ask why they are still on the list Most in the rehab wiil rejoin after Xmas with theif fitness base intact, which is the main aim of the preseason, to get miles into legs. Hence why James Harmes was worked over in the running last Friday to the point of dry retching and telling me that was the hardest running session he had done at the club, so not interrupted? Of course you wouldnt have seen that as you are safely sniping from a distance

    Supercoach: Most Expensive Players

    He's become their link man/designated kicker from defence...a lot of the footy goes through him so I'm guessing his stats are good for super coach... In real footy he's the one you tag now.

    Steelers are now in real danger of missing the playoffs completely ... vs Pats, @ Saints, vs Cinci. Baltimore are looming large and even the Browns are a chance in the AFC North And the Pats almost certainly won't get to the 1 seed and may need to have to make-do with the 3 seed especially if they lose to Pittsburgh next week. They are at home to the Bills & Jets in their last 2 games so they still should win the AFC East. New England may be faced with having to win on the road twice during the playoffs if they drop 1 of their 3 remaining games and if Houston win out for the remainder of their regular season games - the Texans are @ Jets, @ Eagles and then vs Jacksonville. The Pats do have the tie-break advantage over Houston having beaten the Texans earlier in the season.

    Not long ago I had a six pack. They are all gone now. I may have to open another!

    For his price he won't have to score too high but it's gonna mostly depend on how much game time he'll get. Not much risk and he'll be in my team.

    True but the fact that we most likely (at least initially to see if it works) will play both ruckman may eat into Maxy's scores. Preuss will be well priced but he won't get as much time as Max so unless he hits the scoreboard his scores won't be high.

    With Max being the first and most picked last year, that new bloke we got I think will be a bargain and must have this year.

    Yep same as last Friday. Wonder what's up with Gus. Was reported that he was on light duties last week due to being sick during the week. Must have had something that really hit him for six.

    Gus doing laps on his own at a fair pace. Track and Vanders did a few laps on their own. Then Vanders and Harmsie. They were over the other side I assume in the rehab group.

    Training - Monday, 10th December 2018

    I’m unexpectedly here. Down from Sydney and the timing worked out nicely. You can read about training but it’s something else being here. The main group are doing repeat 150metre sprints over and over. As they finish they jog back through a group of trainers who throw balls at them or ground balls which they pick up and pass back. Or at other times they go straight into shots on goal but very rapid and then jog back for the next 150. When you are right next to them you see just how brutal the running is. A lot of the running is in pairs with equally matched runners. I love what I’m seeing. They are clearly training them to execute skills straight off maximum exertion. It’s real game simulation rather than just running around recovering then do some gentle kicking. As you’d expect nowadays it’s super organised. No particular standouts in the running. However I did see ANB kick a goal straight through the middle. Halle bloody lujah. Preuss and Gawn were doing their own run throughs. I hope they get on they’re spending a lot of one on one time together. Preussy is a monster. Now running shoes off and footy boots on. The whole group have gone into a tight huddle in the middle. Someone has started up a chant and the whole group repeats the chant as one. Different phrases over and over. Finished by chanting I have no fear and jumping up and down on the spot. Incredible sense of commeraderie.

    Some great finishes to the early games with boys v eagles into OT! TB missed two early FG meaning a 14-3 instead of 20-3 score line before saints whacked them around. Raiders... wow

    Champion Data: 6 Players in Top 100

    I really think that the MFC has more top players than indicated; however, conservatism rules and keeps us just a little bit less exposed. Maybe this is a strength - surprise thrashings that we can dish out from time to time are satisfying - yet I feel were are truly on the cusp of dishing out a few more and fully losing the tendency to be an 'easybeat' anomaly with lesser opposition from time to time.

    I'm old enough to remember sportsmen being derided for suggesting their teammates give up smoking.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    The only positive out of our lengthy rehab group is that 90% are able to run unhindered, which is clearly the most important part of pre-season. I think that's what the bearded man means when he says their pre-seasons are 'not interrupted'. Even if by definition of the word, they are.

    Dangerous thinking in my opinion. Even suggesting to players that they shouldn't get tattoos for this reason has the potential to cause derision and be quite harmful to esprit de corps. Lines needs to be drawn, suggesting to players they shouldn't get tats is one.
