    Joel may be in a spot of bother: (the Age) GetSwift and its former AFL playing boss hit with $300 million claim By Sarah Danckert 20 February 2018 — 2:53pm "GetSwift and its former Melbourne Football Club player chief executive Joel Macdonald is facing a class action from shareholders that could cost the logistics software company $300 million after the company admitted it had not told investors it had lost key contracts......"

    Covered in the first (locked) thread. Down 200 on same time last year.

    Reported on BF that Joel's company may not be travelling as well as has been made out: (there is a firewall) http://www.afr.com/business/banking-and-finance/hedge-funds/getswift-too-fast-for-its-own-good-20180116-h0ji3t " ...Tim Hannon, chief investment officer at Newgate Capital Partners, is shorting the stock. "We think GetSwift is a company that has developed a product with a useful but very limited application," he said. Mr Hannon said the company has made "a series of regular, high level announcements that lack substance or are unclear ...."
  4. Charlie Spargo's dad is Paul. Peter Spargo is probably the person you're thinking of.
  5. 2018's 'breakout' player

    Hoping it would be Balic but less confident by the minute. I'll take a stab at Harmes or Petty. I guess the latter would have to displace OMac or Frost.
  6. Dangerfield/Selwood/Ablett

    I played golf this morning with a guy who works in the sports dept at Deakin Uni where the Cats train. He said Ablett is absolutely ripped and raring to go. I shudder to think what that midfield could do to us round one.
  7. Hunt injury

    JH is training but is on a modified program (to manage his back). Certainly nothing serious. I gather is just precautionary rather than as a result of any mishap.

    Ditto (two scarves and Trac on my tik). Shirley there's a better action shot of Trac that could have been used.
  9. Behold your 2018 Midfield

    Click on the image and ya get the names. Yeah,, Dom in the middle.
  10. http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2017-12-07/youngsters-bond-in-threeday-camp My mate Miffsy who is a junior coach at Torquay watched the boys training yesterday. Miffsy (who son is a promising junior) was gobsmacked by the players' foot skills and marking. He ain't a Dees man, but was very impressed. BTW Torquay has produced some handy AFL players including Travis Boak and Jasper Pittard. Noah Gadsby likely to be a name you'll hear in a year or two.
  11. List Analysis Potential v Reality

    Looking at Monday night news clip I reckon you've got your 'hope' (wish). The comment was made by the reporter that Trac has slimmed down somewhat.

    As far as I know all the major Victorian clubs have a long waiting list (and charge a huge quid) for GFG membership packages. I let mine lapse in 2000 and I was filthy at having to leave the prelim (when Farmer blitzed) at 3/4 time to queue up, Promptly re-joined the next year. I'm pretty sure what I pay is substantially less than what my mate (a Tigers' man) pays. He lives in NSW and rarely gets to a game, but 30 years of loyalty paid off this year.
  13. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Does it start with 'c' and end in 's'? All these puzzles are doin' my head in.
  14. Jeffy and Dion training and boxing

    Nice article. Thanks for posting. You only have to look at the Tigers to see how a couple of skilled small forwards can make a difference.
  15. Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    No. Not unlike Pedo IMO w/o Pedo's versatility. I'd rather the likes of Joel Smith, Keilty, or Tim Smith be given game time (possibly with the latter two pinch hitting in the ruck).
