    Hoping Kent and Hunt are involved in many passages of play together just to hear a commentator slip up really badly

    Are we going to put anyone on Oxley this time?

    Saty was at every training session too. But remember when asada asked for our records and we, you know, had them and gave them to asada? Like 16 other clubs did? Oh yeah

    Stayed for a bit over an hour. Great to see such a large group. Didn't see Garlett but was told he was on the other side of the Paddock training separately. Spencer was also training separately and doing a fair few circuits with Daniel Cross. Trengove split from the main group after about an hour and started doing circuits as well. In the early part of the training, the squad was split into 4 or 5 groups to practise specific disciplines. Interestingly, Kent and N. Jones were in the same group and part of the exercise was for one player to have the big 'pad' and another player would lay a big bump and then go on to dispose of the ball. When it was Kent's turn to bump the 'paddee', he went in really hard. Jones had anticipated this and went in equally hard leaving Kent on the deck for a few seconds recovering. He then had to go off for a bit of treatment. Given that Kent is a bit of a bully (we need a few of them!), it was great to see that Jones had his measure and wouldn't be intimidated. Watched a bit of the match simulation and, like the real world, looked fantastic when it works (i.e. targets are hit) but ordinary when it doesn't. Petracca, Dawes look keen.

    Roos will ask the players to man up but they'll refuse apparently.

    He was just putting roofies in the Gatorade though, so he should get off lightly.

    Anyone see this [censored] on the footy show tonight. He has tried to connect us with Dank and supplements scandle over 3 years now..He will not leave it alone and now suggests that WADA is going to reopen a case on us. The club needs to get on the front foot and smash this [censored]. He is a parasite.

    Apparently Barrett is denying the use of multiple testosterone creams on his face. Sauces on the beat of this information have indeed confirmed he has been taking loads facially as well as ingesting. Many men are involved and Barrett is not confirming the reports as yet but his acne scarring has healed rapidly due to his man made concoctions according to anonymous reports.

    Rowan Atkinson offers many great gifs. The Scott Bros. are quickly mounting a case for most giffable characters. Aren't you Chris....:

    Misson said yesterday if Garlett got through training and pulled up well saturday he would play. If he doesn't, why is that Misson's fault. Vanders did an ankle. Brayshaw was rushed in by the Match Committee. Watts has obviously injured a knee. Why is that Misson's fault. I thought his main job was to get the players fit and that seems ok, they run out games. The Doctors and Physios look after injuries. Yes he might guess wrongly as to when a player will come back, but that is not his main job, that is just fluff for the supporters.

    This might be the most fun I've had in a thread in a long time. It might be because I'm only understanding every 3rd or 4th word. Plus Rowan Atkinson gifs.

    I used to go to most training sessions, never remember Dank being there, and I knew most of the backroom staff Dank has changed his story so many times, I am astounded that ASADA take him seriously, I thought he refused to say anything to them originally? Sam Newman (who I normally don't listen to, I put the TV on mute) summed it up the best on the Footy Show I know Dank was hawking his wares around the clubs, mainly on the strength of what Robinson was supposedly doing to the fitness at the Bombers

    I'm not investing any emotion into Hogan. He's 50 50 at best to stay. He's the classic pay to play player. My guess is he's leaving and I don't believe it will ruin us

    What doesn't add up, to me, is what has changed in a few months. He happily signed on at the end of 2014 and, if he really wanted out, he could have gone to the club and demanded a trade. Nothing happened. He completed an excellent pre-season and is just starting to get back into form, giving no indication that he wants to be back in Perth at all costs. Langdon has hit the mark before, but he's also been waaaaay off as well. He is a Perth native who, of course, would want to see someone like Jesse come home. I just can't take him all that seriously.

    Let's hope we don't hear after the game "yeah we made a mistake at the selection table" that will do my farkin head in.

    Second week in a row that the selections have left me scratching my head. * Can't see a role for both Pedersen and Frost * It is a big roll of the dice playing both Wagner and Hunt. That is a lot of inexperience in defensive posts - assuming that is where they play. No choice but to put it down to "these guys are the experts and I'm not" and go with it. It's not doing my confidence much good though.

    plenty of time to think ourselves in circles about how we might screw this up? Some weeks I sure am grateful I inherited melbourne supporterness from my family. Not sure what I'd do with my time if I didn't stress about the club.

    We have the perfect defense in any case. We have to be found guilty of taking performance enhancing drugs. We either didn't take performance enhancing drugs or if we did, we definitely need to ask for our money back.

    Saty is the definition of a (clears throat) "dedicated fan". If he says dank wasn't there, he wasn't there.

    I have never met Saty. I have never met Dank. Somehow though, I trust Saty a hell of a lot more than Dank. Thanks for the info

    Nope. That doesn't wash anymore - we've been told we have to put up with that for 10 years. In actual fact, the 'inexperience' was just hiding mostly rubbish lists. We've got the players now win games of footy against middle of the road teams. Where we will lose out still is in tight situations against good teams like North, where that inexperience is genuinely the difference between winning and losing.

    Jake barracks for the Pies, so it may be wishful thinking as much as anything else. If our inside mids and Gawn compete in the same fashion as they did against North then we win. It's as simple as that.

    Hoges is contracted until end of season 2017. Would want Neale plus a top 5 pick plus a first rounder the next year - so good is Hoges. Freo is ageing and could be on the decline. Why would he leave a club on the rise if his pay is ok. Plus Freo have to fit McCarthy and Hooker if they go there in the CAP. Cannot see it happening.

    When I read the thread title, I thought it was implying that Ian Nankervis was, how shall I say.... somewhat promiscuous and had fathered a large number of progeny. Lucky I persisted

    If I recall Dunn & some others had a Vitamin injection or something. Anyway it was cleared because it was prescribed & documented.And injected by a qualified nurse I think. As for Warriors report, he didn't state ASADA were interested in anyone other than Bock, based on Dank's BS. He just likes to embellish things by implication and not statement of fact.

    I think it's naive to dismiss this. I'm not saying there is substance to it but I'd much rather it hadn't been raised. If WADA do reopen the case it's because of meaningful information. With everything that went on in the latter Bailey years and the Neeld years I'm unable to dismiss it as easily as most.

    You may be one-eyed, Mono. But, you still have 20-20 vision! I REALLY want our boys to come out this Sunday, all guns blazing! Take no prisoners! As I continually like to remind people...there's two things that bring me joy. One is Melb winning. The other is Collingwood losing! When both things happen in the same match I'm absolutely over the moon! I am EXPECTING good things this Sunday!! Who cares if it's against the opposition's best or their worst? Just get the job done...!!!

    Ms. Wilson in the Age has a good handle on Dank ~ His reputation ruined, Stephen Dank craves relevance. It's not just Dank's reputation that's ruined but also his credibility. How appalling it is that some people who have it in for the former board and CEO would give the four month story the time of day. For the record the matter was investigated by the club which reported to Gillon McLachlan, then second in charge at the AFL. According to information made available then, Dank was interviewed for a position at the club and was rejected. He also had dialogue with the club's doctor, Dr Bate on treatment of injuries without the club's knowledge but Bate cut off all contact on 5 February 2013 ("the darkest day"). Eventually word of what had happened got back to Don McLardy and Cameron Schwab who had the matter fully investigated and reported to McLachlan who had not communicated the fact to Demetriou when the 7.30 Report story about the club's connection came out. Demetriou was wrong to blast the club but no apology was ever forthcoming. If there is any truth to Dank's story it might come out (personally, I doubt anything of the sort will) but if anyone on this site wants to cast aspersions of impropriety on the specific individuals in charge of the club at the time on this issue, then please provide your name and address and be prepared to accept the consequences. This site does not endorse any comments or inferences against those persons.

    It's scripted perfectly, Collingwood followed by Richmond. Please let it happen.
