    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.

    I don't think any of them can be accused of performance enhancing either

    He should have said "we will let the opposition cruise to huge lead and then try to come back from there".

    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.

    Fact is no-one knows. Probably not even Hogan himself. People pretend to know, think they know, have opinions but at the end of the day who knows? It is an industry in which every day second rate media types create news grabbing stories that are pedalled as fact. No-one is held to account so it becomes the story. It is really tiresome and best to be both cynical and detached. Increasingly players jump ship when there is a better deal or other reason such as "going home". Supporters of every club rejoice at picking up a star recruit from another club but become concerned when a player wants to leave their club. Such is the way it is. Swings and roundabouts.

    I'm still wondering why the hell it matters who our opponent played last week. Does anyone think Hawthorn, Freo, Sydney or Geelong get the slightest bit worried if their opponent lost last week? Until we stop thinking like this, we'll be an irrelevancy.

    I don't rate anything Barrett says about the game of football, he hasn't got a clue. Unfortunately unlike most of us he does have a platform & microphone to spew out his dribble on the game itself. ...however football politics and the issues that go on around football are another matter. There is no point slamming him on this and sounding like a bunch of EFC supporters shouting conspiracies. Lets see how it pans out, it might be filling in some news with some Dank ramblings or it might go deeper. Barrett has not been one of the Robbo men on the EFC saga and is also not a Dank apologist. He is pretty good at this stuff, I just hope he is on the wrong track here.
