    We need a few of our good players to become stars of the game - A grade no less. Petracca seems the most likely to me, Hogan is another. But a breakout year in the forward line for the entire season? T-Mac. 50-60+ goals will do it and he's capable of achieving that. One of his strengths is an innate ability to find time and room for himself. And in the forward line, that's invaluable. And he is a very accurate kick for goal. Play him deep forward and get Hogan at CHF and up the ground.

    It's all noise, I want the team to not believe the hype, I want them to think they have no Talent, that way they will do all the hard things, the only reason we did not make finals is every time we had a big lead in games we took the foot of the pedal, it started in round 1 when we let the saints kick the last 2 goals, and it happened all the way till round 22, I hope the team has learnt that its never over until the final siren, we must finish strong.

    Interesting discussion, and no doubt the list has improved, but what still concerns me is the way the same list of players took the foot off the gas in the last 2 rounds of 2016 and 2017 Attitude will determine how far this club goes. This club is famous for talking tough before a job is done nobody rates The MFC, we are still laughed at by opposition supporters SEN had the Demon thread up on their facebook page yesterday. Interesting read goodluck Simon. 2018 could make or break you....

    The only issue I see with these predictions, is that none of these experts would have picked Tigers or the Bulldogs to win a flag

    So he spoke, and, from heaven, Father Zeus himself sealed the intent with his words, when your are good, your are good, but when you are bad you go missing, and so consigned to Hermes, command over birds of omen, glad-eyed lions, white-tusked wild pigs, dogs, sheep, and all the flocking beasts that the broad earth nourishes.

    Well well, the good horses won today at the Magic Millions and the quaddie was all there for the taking (not that it paid much!) Not for me though, money back on the 9th but no other collects. Sunlight wins the 2yo Classic and looks to have a terrific future and is now being set for the 'Slipper' Care to Think won the cup race after drawing badly and being 3 wide for the race Pierata won the Guineas in very impressive fashion - another 3yo with a bright future. Viddora can really sprint (the horse is being set for 'The Everest')

    Agree with Richmond, at the start of the season, most 'experts' and the general public had them finishing bottom half of the ladder last year. But the Bulldogs had been building and increased competiveness for a few years. They were the yard stick of the comp for the first half of 2016, although they did fade a bit in the second half of the season. One of the things that I think is apparent in the AFL at the moment is that to me there is not a clear dominant super power like Hawthorn, Geelong and to some extent Sydney were over the preceeding period. Adelaide were the closest thing to that last season, but we'e no where near as dominant and in the end capitulated. It will be interesting to see if any club can achieve a position of dominance in the forthcoming period, unfortunately I can see GWS being such a club if they don't have such a torid year with injury. I suspect that GWS have also got a decent chance of sustained succss as they seem to keep loosing good players, but must be stockpiling decient young draft picks whenever they loose talent like Adams Trelore and will no doubt continue to enjoy discounted access to talent by the AFL through their academy etc. ... but I hope I'm wrong, because I can't stand them.

    Fair point. Rorting of the salary Cap will continue. There is no way all 18 clubs are under the Cap.

    Culture is the most overrated saying in football every club at some point will have a good one and bad one, nothing stays the same. Let's look at the NBA it has had a draft and free agency for longer then the AFL. 2 great teams the bulls and Lakers have won lots of flags, at some point people would of said they both have great cultures and will never bottom out, the bulls have had no success since Jordon the Lakers have been at the bottom for the last few years, everyone will bottom out at some point when u have a cap draft and free agency.

    the one i'm interested to see how they go this year is st. kilda - people have ranked our sides together in the last couple of years, but for mine they've always been a far older, more experienced and completely different side in terms of their timing of 'rising' withour riewoldt and montagna, their whole set-up is going to have to change somewhat - roo in particular was still in their top three or so players blues have had a rotten run with injury already, losing arguably their most consistent player in docherty, and like everyone i think north are sort at the beginning of a long road - brisbane, gc17 and freo all seem more advanced i like our structure, i like our contested ball winning ability, i don't rate our speed or skills to transition effectively, but i think we're good enough to take the next step and that seems to be the general sense from most football followers too all i want is a decent run with injury, and viney is already a big concern

    I think the Cats are destined to fall in a heap more so than the Hawks. I really wonder what a lot of the Geelong playing group are thinking with Gary Jnr. back in the saddle. Blokes like Stevie J, Pops Kelly and Paul Chapman must have raised an eyebrow when they heard he was back. For years, Geelong convinced us that it was no longer a self-indulgent organization that valued the team over individual hero worship. Ablett’s comeback may put that proposition to the test. This surely will have an impact on retaining as well as recruiting new players. Say what you like about Clarko being harsh on long term servants of the club, but he isn’t hypocritical. He did no different when he came in and started cleaning out the joint in 2005.

    Seen a good deal of that, OMac - feet flat on the ground, thinking out loud 'What do I do next?', 'Maybe if I stand here looking like I can occupy this ground the rest of the game will go around me, perhaps?', 'Hey, they did!' Gutsy stuff, I'd reckon.

    Great photos....and look at Frosty! Talking of a 'breakout' year, I am changing my position. Both Frosty and Pedo are going to scar the whole competition this coming season with fear, trepidation and unstoppable defensive and forward excellence. Watch out Collingwood - they're coming to get you!!!

    It's time once again to thank all our dedicated track watchers for their insightful comments and outstanding photos. Perhaps someone could let us know if Brayshaw seems to be working with the midfield group or the defenders? I ask because in his "comeback" games at the end of last year he played off the HBF and I thought acquitted himself very well there, yet we all believe he was recruited to form part of our midfield group.

    Definitely think Frosty could be a full-back sensation this year. Hogan will show his class and skills, for sure. Nev Jetta is just the best rebound backman there is ... an amazing talent. Keep an eye on Petracca as a forward prime mover. Clarrie will just roll an even better year this year and Hibberd will make Collingwood terribly upset.

    The Brisbane winter carnival is one my favourites. I lived in Brisbane from 2011-14 and would frequent the local on Saturdays to watch the Dees with the races in the background. With our performances during that time it wasn't hard to turn your attention to the races. I attended Stradbroke Handicap Day one year whilst up there. It was a great day out with many quality horses running. Best part was you didn't have to push through 100,000 people to get to a bar.

    Yep ... the prizemoney on offer is remarkable for the Magic Millions meeting. As previosly mentioned, I'll have a go at the 1400m Cup race and will probably have a few 'Interest' bets on the other feature races. There's not a lot of sport happening on Saturday arvo's now so the races takes centre-stage. Even in the footy season we rarely play on a Saturday arvo so the Brisbane & Adelaide carnivals fits nicely after the Autumn Carnival. And the big races from Europe kicks off in early May as well ... there are any number of Set Weight or WFA races to hold my interest. 'Winx' travelling over there for a few races adds to the interest.
