  1. 2018's 'breakout' player

    I hope it's Brayshaw. His kicks to Gartlett in space in his 1st year were wonderful to watch. 3 of them a game will give us 4-5 more wins a year. ANB is a real chance too. Seems to get quietly better each game.
  2. Geelong haven't bottomed out in my lifetime (born 71). A lot of not quite years but never in the bottom 4. Home ground plays a part, but mostly it has been sensible stewardship.
  3. Where's Harrison Petty?

    With the MFC I tend to go with Occam's razor - someone in the PR / IT dept accidentally deleted his profile while downloading porn on a lunch break and is now pretending they know nothing about it. Still it's nice to know that we are a united group. We all panic over nothing together.

    Balls. They would have beaten Sydney in the 2005 SF but for the Nick Davis show. Maybe they were dodgy in 2007+, maybe not, but to say it was an overnight thing is to rewrite history.
  5. Remember "Raise Hell"?

    Looks like a poster for an AC/DC concert. I don't mind the idea, but the talk has to be backed with the walk. I think we have some serious hardnuts in our side... on a par with Northey's 80's / 90's teams, so it'd be good to play on that, but we need to play finals to play that sort of card properly. Right now we are walking the walk in some games, and just talking it in others. Who remembers Carlton's 'They know what we are cooking' promo? They sunk faster than the Titanic that year. I don't want to see us trash talking and then finish nowhere.
  6. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    Heh. Now tell me it isn't Jack
  7. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    I sent mine back. I told them unless at least one starting 22 player gets hit on the head with a brick by Xmas I won't be able to support such a soft club. Goodwin wrote back asking if it was OK if he got one of his mates in Adelaide to hit Jack Watts with a cricket bat. I'm thinking it over.
  8. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    What a load of tripe. PA closer to the flag than us? Clearly he failed geography at Brighton. There is a brand new one hanging up at Punt Road. That's only walking distance from us, whereas PA would have to get on a plane AND hire a taxi to be near it. Jack seems like a nice lad, but I don't think he is too bright.
  9. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    It's all Mickey Mouse. I'd rather they spent the time honing their craft - which is, as you may remember, playing football against the best in the land. And abseiling down a cliff or climbing a mountain doesn't make you a better footballer - it makes you a better abseiler or a better mountain climber, and having a brick dropped on your head is highly unlikely to make you a better anything. I think the players got it right. They couldn't see any tangible benefits from it, and based on last year, only negative outcomes. This isn't giving the kybosh to a time trial run. This is saying no to something that won't make them better footballers no matter how many times they do it. And, hey, they showed some pretty smart and clever teamwork to get the win on that. Edit - and I can't begin to tell you how much I liked the comment about if only the Essendon players stood up to the club about OH&S concerns.
  10. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    If I go into work tomorrow morning and give notice, I'll get 4 weeks pay + my entitlements, escorted to clean out my stuff, then escorted off the site. It's a pretty common practice across all fields. It's not that they think you will sabotage the place, it's that in those 4 weeks you can gather some pretty good intel to take to a competitor. And you add that to a booting... well, it's a lot safer to pay them out than have them around. It's a sad fact, but a true one, that business is not run on feelings. It's run on what is good for the business, and feelings be damned. People come and people go, but the business lives on.
  11. 9 Goals Straight from David Schwarz

    Just makes me sad

    i'm more worried about the plaid jacket
  13. Preseason Training - Week commencing 6/11/17

    About bloody time Sylvia had a good pre-season. Brownlow for sure this year.
  14. Hibberd on Lever

    I really wonder why I keep coming back to this place. 50% is mindless point scoring on mindless points, and the other 50% is insults. Most of you people have no idea. You really don't. You read the Age or watch the news and think you actually know something. Then when people that do know a little bit about the game say something you all line up with BS stats or insults. Most of the best posters here are the ones that get the biggest kicking. Hmmm.
