    I think what that means is that anyone who says anything at all positive about the MFC, is referred to in sports journalism circles, as a "Melbourne defender".

    Sorry but I can't listen to this garbage any more. I'm watching the cricket.

    Took us to a Grand Final. Neeld took us to 4 wins. Get some perspective before bagging the guy out.

    As always, I am buoyed by the upcoming footy season. Nothing could ever change that!

    Theres a very simple solution to this problem. ALL gate proceeds from EVERY game in the season, apart from the finals(should go to the finals clubs), are taken by the AFL . at the end of the year the AFL divides the total gate receipts by 18 and gives each club its even share. That way the AFL can continue to base fixturing around maximising the number of "blockbuster" games without the less successful clubs missing out financially. The clubs get their cash, the AFL get a more even comp, and the TV gets their "blockbusters". There it is .

    If it can't be found I vote the club gives her a brand new one with the entire list signed and throw in a couple of legends like Gary and Ox, and present it to her on the ground round 1.

    Geez her latest Age bio article about AD is nothing but p!ssing in his pocket. Pretty clear that he is beyond any real criticism by her. She's certainly not going to bite the hand that feeds her.

    I couldn't work out why Neeld tried him as a defensive forward when was doing so well as a mid.

    Honestly, the commentary is much better than when we played Adelaide a few years ago.

    Goal to Davey. Apparently "Melbourne got one that they ... probably shouldn't have." If it were a Port player, it would have most certainly been goal of the day #4.

    Im going to fly to adelaide next week and smack this [censored] in the face swear to god every time they kick a goal its like theyve run from full back untouched kicked a torpedo from the centre square facing backwards over his head.

    Seriously, people here are getting upset over nothing. Sure the commentary is extremely biased, but there had been 4 or 5 pages of preamble on this thread that had established that that would be the case... so no surprises there. The way I treat it is to get excited every time that the commentary quietens down. And to say that they have said something good about Davey only is nonsense... I have heard a few complimentary comments directed at other players and to our forward line pressure generally.

    The commentators can't even recognise James Sellar and he used to play in Adelaide.

    I nearly spat my drink out when they were talking about that! They couldn't even name 5 midfielders! Then they threw in Ebert and chad Wingard...

    If I only ever said positive things about Watts most people would be very happy. People love to hear positive views. If you say what you believe and they happen to be negative most people hate it. They're still just "opinions", which by themselves mean nothing, especially from an internet nuffie, but many people just want to read the good stuff. Fwiw, I don't believe I'm harsh on Watts. Let's make a list. 1. Is he a failed forward - yes 2. Is he timid in the air in a contested situation - yes 3. Does he hit the body hard enough, or spoil hard enough in the back-line - no. In fact sometimes he makes no contact when he needed to 4. Is he aggressive - no 5. Is he fast - yes 6. Is he a beautiful kick - yes 7. Is he a good decision maker - yes 8. Is he agile - yes 9. Is he good on his non preferred side - yes 10. Is he sublimely skilled for a tall - yes 11. Is he a good shot at goal - yes 12 Are there queries about his ability to really stand up in a hot final given some of the queries re his footy DNA - yes Put simply, many would agree with most, if not all of the above, but some may query the importance of some of the above. They may not put the same weight on things I do. There are some players I'd love to run out with in a grand final. Some players that you know who'd die for the chance of victory. I wouldn't want to be running out alongside Jack Watts. I judge footballers on certain parameters and unfortunately he fails the ones I hold dearest. I understand what supporters see in him, I understand supporters love highly skilled players and I understand why some supporters loathe me and my views. I truly "get it". But I don't care. I have virtually no time for him as a footballer. And I can't see that changing. If he was able to completely change my view by his actions on the footy field there would be no-one happier than me. I'll at least refrain from commenting on him until the season proper. NOTE: the last sentence will be possibly quoted and certainly relished by most. You lot are easy to read.

    Not really the place for politics Robbie but your conservative views on nearly every subject bore me to death. Your over simplistic presentation of fiscal issues is as tedious as the Liberal mantra "we will not raise interest rates" when in fact the raising and lowering of interest rates is set by the Reserve Bank. Successful Economic policy in Australian Fiscal matters has been lead by Keating and more recently Rudd/Swan. Your advocation of stringency during duress (GFC) would have been financial suicide for this country . The money in the coffers doesn't belong to Liberal or Labor mate ,and the spending of it is what keeps this society ticking or limping along ,as the case may be . It's not your private account that the reds are spending so relax .It belongs to us all . If you know something on the issue ,share it ,but don't parrot pathetic media grabs . I though you might have a little more to you than that .

    In his favour is that he's only 22 years old, he's a goer, and he should be able to improve his disposal (probably more so his handballing skills) Every team needs a tagger or 2 and there are no other 'likely' candidates on our list. I read somewhere that Allan Jeans had a philosophy that if you win the tackles, you win the game. A lot on our list can't tackle very well. We shouldn't be at all concerned on whether he's going to 'good' player in a 'good' side yet. You need players to help you get there and we're miles off being a good side right now. If we improve, so might McKenzie. Apart from anything else, he's nowhere near our biggest issue. Right across the board, we need a truckload of improvement to be able to get into contention. I'm not being an apologist for Jordie - he, like many others on our list, needs to get a lot better.

    The criticism wasn't directed at the discussion of Tapscott. The criticism was leveled at the highly critical tone of the subject line. If you want a discussion about Tappy, just say "where do you think Tapscott's at?". The present headline is as biased as a Range Rover poll title.
