    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    I was talking about spending it on a new home.

    AFLX Revamped

    It was up to the individual player whether or not they nominate for the AFLX ‘draft’ so there’s no need to exaggerate the injury list to playing. I spoke to Goodwin about the competition, he just said it’s a bit of fun and he was happy if certain players wanted to nominate to play. At the moment he’s must concentrating on the season proper, and as I’ve said all along, he’ll pick his best 22 based on who’s had the best pre-season.

    Calling All MCC Members

    We pay the MCC/MFC full membership for our five (grown up and with mortgages) children as well as for me and the old fashioned Guest ticket for my wife. I start taking Valium in August One thing you do get with the full MFC is a nominated child to be a member and with 13 grandchildren only one of whom is unfaithful (poo and wee) there’s no shortage of candidates to take up the membership. In a couple of years my 50 year membership of the MCC comes up and the annual premium becomes $50 a year which means I might be able to give up work

    The Bearded Jaffle

    We had a cleaner, a big French guy, he would come in and eat all the cream biscuits in the tea room. One day I left one cream biscuit on the table, cream removed and filled with wasabi. He swallowed it whole and soon turned green, he never stole another biscuit. Edit- In the 60's the Herbert Adams pies served at the footy were like molten lava inside and if it dripped between your fingers it would burn like hell.

    Fox Footy's 2019 Top 8 Predictions

    I'm persuaded by George on the outer's argument that the 6 6 6 set up won't make the sort of impact some are suggesting. Yes having six forwards behind the arc will give players coming out of the centre more time to dispose of the ball (meaning cleaner entries). But in reality there are not that many direct centre clearances. Also teams wanting to negate the impact of a dominant ruckman can use their wingers defensively. They can also go man on man and work to create an immediate stoppage and create a secondary ball up. And there will be no restrictions in that scenario. As I noted in the impact of rule changes I reckon the change to the kick out rules will have the greatest impact and may result in higher scores and therefore blowouts.

    The Bearded Jaffle

    Anything hotter? I reckon the jam from a microwaved donut would go close SWYL! Worked in an office with a bloke who would guts 80% of any morning tea provided. Left a plate of microwaved jam donuts out on the kitchen table. Taught the bustard a valuable albeit, painful lesson. On the topic of jaffles, I love 'em with just about anything but particularly cooked over an open camp fire.

    AFLX Revamped

    Curious....Do Demonlanders have an understanding at Goodwin and Co's view on AFLX? Do they see it as an important part of preseason? Do they see it adding value or not to what the club wants to achieve with its players? Do i expect to see media reports that we've got an alarmingly high injury list for the sole purpose of avoiding putting players into the AFLX competition? @Satyriconhome you must have a vibe or solid intel on this, with your closeness to the group.

    We play Collingwood, Richmond and West Coast a total of 6 times. Last year the games were over at 3 qtr time against all of those side as we had poor losses (Bar the memorable rd 22 win. Top 4 rests on those games.

    Neita was another... just too nice. too often. Not enough mongrel. often enough. Our club shrank away from that game, and the Bummers club... as we did with the Hawks club. .

    IF Petracca steps up in the midfield rotations this year, 'Oli' could play both forward, and inside the stoppages. IF.

    I see him also as possibly interchangeable with Melksham.

    Calling All MCC Members

    maybe go back to treating supporters and/or members... as they did back in the 70's & 80's_ prior to the new Northern Stand schemozzle, just for starters. Since they built that Northern stand... ordinary Mfc supporters have been treated as stateless. since then kids cannot get within cooee of the players race. Let alone the rooms, before or after. talk about 'Trumps Wall'.

    The gloves cover up the bloody angle. Less cuts with gloves than without... the more blood, the more likely to stop the fight earlier. But with gloves... bouts go longer, and boxers get hit much more because of this. Cage fighting, is more gory, for the bloodiness... but there are less head hits that do brain damage, IMO. So do people dislike the bloodiness more... or the unseen brain damage, more with boxing ? Than again, probably more dangerous is Horse racing, or other 'horse sports'... for both rider, and/or horses. .

    Jetta: Unfinished Business

    I wish Neitz had said we had unfinished business on the GF dais in 2000 instead of hoping we could get back there one day and give it another crack.
  22. Go the Biff

    Calling All MCC Members

    As I recall the dual membership used to give access to an evening in the MCC at a function with the coach. I think it was when The Reverend was at the helm. At some point after that they re-jigged the MCC/MFC thing & formed 2 categories They also gave a free junior MFC membership which was useful. There are a couple of Demon relatives of mine in their late teens, early 20's who were introduced to the MFC with one of these free memberships I'd imagine there are plenty more so that was a worthwhile promotion When things were really crook and our attendances sucked I used to enter via the MCC, get a passout, then enter with my MFC membership to increase the crowd stats by one. At the end of the day it's not about what you get - it is a donation. Rather than pins and scarves etc I'd rather the club just keep and use the money. How many scarves can you wear ?

    Fox Footy's 2019 Top 8 Predictions

    Yes, I really hope so. Team I want to beat this year, I to wouldn't mind additions to the 'when will this record be broken', such as losing margin. Preferably Geelong to take it over.

    Harmsey Ready to Wreak Havoc Again

    With centre bounces becoming more important this season I would have Oliver in most if not all these contests. As far as midfield time in general he can float forward from there if he needs a break. The others can rotate through as you say...
  25. rjay

    Fox Footy's 2019 Top 8 Predictions

    I think he's right, was only saying the same to a mate the other day. The AFL need to be careful what they wish for...at least our dismal losing margin records (Cats & Fitzroy) could be in for a trashing with hopefully us dishing it out for a change.

    Calling All MCC Members

    Absolutely. We need to turn that around over the next decade. Can be done with good onfield performances

    Harmes will be a gun. And he bleeds Red and Blue like few others. Living our dreams, playing for the club he supported as a kid. Knows the heartache we've all been through. Fast becoming one of my favourites.
