  1. Be Patient with Lever

    I recall there been talk of Lever being capable of playing as a mid. I don't know where I heard that from, so its possible I heard it in relation to MFC considering selecting him with the potential of Lever playing as a mid. You could be right. He could play mid. He is well balanced and usually makes good decisions.
  2. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I applaud Richmond on their consistency to actually get into the finals last year. They then played well in the finals and had a small bit of luck when Cotchin was somehow let off on report and allowed to play on the GF (but fair play to them for getting there). Consistency has been a crux of MFC. We play some great football at times but cannot do it consistently, and more often than not cannot even do it consistently in the space of a game. Rarely do we put whole games together. I always say to my old man that a team that gives away so many goals in the last 30 seconds of quarters does not belong in the finals, and is a team in trouble. We are that team. On our day we can beat Richmond, and may well next Tuesday, but our challenge is to string together 4 consistent quarters of good football, and then try and back that up.

    I think the concerns raised over the camp (that got cancelled) shown us there is a real communication divide between the coaches and the playing group.
  4. Shepherding the man on the mark

    It was a deliberate tactic and I find it disgraceful. It is against the rules and why it was allowed is anyone's guess.
  5. Be Patient with Lever

    Lever is superior to Dunn. I wasn't a big fan of the Lever trade, but its done now. The positives are that Lever has previously played up to an AA level, has talent, is a great mover, a good kick and usually a good decision maker. On top of that, he has only recently turned 22. Still a kid and given time to fill out he could be the KP player we need.

    "Has there been any mental training in the off season to combat these issue " Well there was going to be a camp..
  7. Angus Brayshaw

    Brayshaw isn't very quick, but his lack of pace isn't a bad thing. He needs to slow down going into congestion. It decreases his chance of getting concussed. It is the really short and sharp movements in tight that Brayshaw needs to focus on. He doesn't need to be explosive in a 100m sprint, he just needs to be good in a small space. He is also great on either foot, so if he can improve his spread he should be able to utilize those skills. So long as Brayshaw can avoid getting concussed I think he has a future. We are not talking about a Jack Trengove who has nothing else to offer once he loses his speed, Brayshaw has a lot more tools at his disposal. Should he slow down he can still be very effective.
  8. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Considering we have the list capable of winning it this year then no, I am not happy to wait 8 years. Our best footy is up there with the best in the comp, and our worst footy is down there with the worst in the comp. At some point the decision makers need to make some tough calls, because at this stage in our development, we should be more consistent. I'd be looking at Clarkson at years end, but outside of that, there may be someone else available. What we don't need is another untried coach. We need someone to set clear standards as to what is and what isn't acceptable.
  9. Shepherding the man on the mark

    They did it all day. I was watching them do it and swearing my head off. Its not in the rules. The man on the man was blocked out from running east or west. How isn't that not a free kick against Hawthorn? This didn't just happen a few times either - it happened regularly. I don't want us to do it because it should have been a free kick to us. I reckon if we did it then they'd of paid it against us.
  10. Changes v Richmond

    Out: Bugg and Harmes. In: Hannan and Hunt.
  11. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    We won't make the finals with Goodwin at the helm. You don't rest Gawn for 10 minutes and allow McKovey to take over the game - going up against an undersized James Harmes. Goodwin is the kinda coach we all would've loved when we were trying to lose games. But now we actually want to win games Goowin is the last bloke you'd want in charge. I'd sack him this week he is absolutely hopeless and has no idea. None.
  12. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    It won't be. He does this sh*t all the time. But then he comes out and kicks 3-4 goals some weeks and people forget about him being sh*t - which he is most the time. Demonland seems to be onto Bugg today. Its taken them a while. The bloke is nothing but a turnover merchant. He is a useless kick.
  13. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    That is what Salem can do when you put him on the ground Simon.
  14. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    We should go hard at him. We have a really good list, we just need a competent coach.
  15. GAME DAY - ROUND 4

    No. This would be a good game to pinch because we have played like sh*t. All that matters is we get the W. But hopefully we concentrate on our weaknesses during the next week after stealing those wins.
