    Demons 7th ranked forward line

    Forward line is a concern for me. If Tom McDonald isn’t right, I guess Preuss will be the tall target deep. A little concerned about McDonald as he seems to be having trouble with his big toe again. Go see Petraccas Instagram to see what I am talking about. I think we will improve if guys like Spargo the Weed can take their game to the next level. Getting Hannan going and consistently contributing will improve the functionality of the forward line. We were better upnforward without Hogan, so it doesn’t bother me that he has gone. It will be an interesting start to the year to see how we shape up.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Some pretty ordinary photos doing the rounds of social media showing Jesse’s off-season ‘training’. It should be pretty clear to all why we weren’t desperate to keep him. he is a kid who is entitled to a good time, but there is a enough evidence out there for people to paint a picture of why the MFC decided to move on Hogan.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    On the issue of MFC/MCC memberships, I have often wondered why the MCC don’t do a better deal for us. For example, my wife is not an MCC member but buys an MFC membership but elects to buy a MCC guest ticket every week. I’d love to see the MCC introduce a permanent MFC supporter guest pass that gave access to MFC games and access to the MCC reserve. The problem is , Eddie would get his knickers in a bunch and stop it. The MFC is a sporting section of the MCC though. It should be a non-issue. Obviously these memberships would not give access to category A games like QB or anzac eve, but could be a huge revenue raiser for MFC and MCC. I remember talking to Jimmy Stynes at a Youth Summit when he first took over as Pres. he and Schwabb has identified that the separation of supporters was a key problem. I understand tht not all MFC supporters want to sit in the MCC, but a large majority do or have friends sitting in the Reserve who they’d like to sit with. Back in the 80s and MFC membership allowed you to sit in the MCC section. When that was taken away, our supporter groups were divided. So set up a 600 dollar MFC/MCC membership tht gives MFC fans access to the reserve for non Category A games. At least it adds money to both club’s pockets and might prompt some to take up MFC membership. Especially those with kids under 16 who aren’t MCC members yet and pay guest pass fees weekly.

    Training - Wednesday, 28th November 2018

    that Sparow kid has some serious size to him. His biceps are bigger than a few 3rd year players.

    I’ll ask again, are we making this pick 26 tonight or can I go to bed? This is the the most drawn out shite I’ve ever been subjected to.

    Chris Dawes wore them in a night game a few season's ago. I think we won. I remember Mitch Clark wore them too.

    100%. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the current jumper. If anything, the V could be deeper, but that's about it. That example of the Robbie Flower jumper above is completely inaccurate of what MFC jumpers looked liked at the time. You only need to look at the guy behind flower to see that the V was not wide and under the armpit at all. Refer to this image for accurate representation. The only reason that it looks like that is because of the construction of the longsleeve jumper and wool being the fabric.

    Thus creating a compromised fixture that disadvantages, seriously disadvantages, 2 sides in the competition more heavily than any other. It also dilutes the ANZAC eve game. You won't see best teams playing. so what the hell is the point.

    In other words, Ed will hijack the day and make it all about the good work Collingwood do in the community?

    The NT games HAVE TO GO next season. Especially if the AFL is drawing us to playing WA and SA sides there continually. They get more support than we do and it's a climate that suits the West Aussies far more than us. It is literally diluting any home ground advantage. Times up on this. When the membership swells this year, surely we must look at ridding ourselves of this silly alliance.

    GIving up these games in the NT is still [censored] me off. It’s always against an SA and WA side who gain more from playing there than we do, other than financially. The support for both sides is always far greater. It also makes it a 50:50 scenario, which would otherwise favour us at The G. When will we drop this ?
