  1. Any Chance Jake Spencer back to MFC as Rookie?

    Which is an outright disaster. Appalling failure unless we pick up a mature ruckman. We could lose Max before the season even starts. Would you be content if Pedersen and Tom had to do the job all year? FFS!

    He's had ample opportunity? Rubbish. He's been most unfortunate and good team management over the past two years would have involved him playing more

    And when Watts did get ready, for R1, he played well. Umpires gave him votes in R3

    You were then, and still are, dead right!

    If so mate, how did he play in Round one. Bloody well from memory

    Would u have said Watts wax barely in our best 22 the week he did his hamstring? Of course not. He had played about 15 weeks of decent footy including pinch hitting in the ruck. He had kicked a number of goals no-one on the list could have kicked. This is what pisses me off. Several players were brought back this year, too early after injury. Watts, Viney, Salem spring to mind. Watts was plainly worried about the hammy v Crows and then played poorly twice. He was ok in the last match. who or what replaces a clean long kicking forward who, if he gets a dozen disposals, makes a contribution. i don't know why he wasn't fit at the start of the season. This was v poor, I agree. But he would have learned from this. I think we are making a poor decision. If he decided to stay I'd be delighted

    I really think that this bloke, if fully fit, is in our best 22. Look at the match v Geelong. Had missed preseason, was rushed back and actually dominated except he kicked badly for goal. I think he had 8 shots. Took a couple of great marks. Has great pace and can tackle. I suspect he thought he had it made at the end of 2016, this season will have been a real shock. I like Hannan, but at his best this bloke is better
  8. Adelaide tanked

    immediately Geelong beat GWS I knew that we were gone. It meant Crows had nothing to play for. it does highlight the importance of the suggestion Mick Malthouse made, notably that to avoid unfairness, every match in the last round should be played at the same time. This is what happens in the Premier League in U.K. Of course, it was our fault that we lost to Collingwood, but WC had an unbelievable advantage knowing precisely what they needed to do.

    I suggest you stop thinking. It can be dangerous I
  10. Dom Tyson - Yes or No ?

    Decided to look at some stats tyson afl dreamtime rating in 2017 was 91 viney 90 petracca 76 jones 101 oliver 102 not certain who else we should match him with. Tyson was second in the B and F in 2014, season ruined by injury in 2015, 4th in 2016 and there are are many who want to get rid of him!!!

    I agree. I thought his second half of the season was disappointing, but there again, if we hadn't had the serious run of injuries, perhaps he could have been rested for a week
  12. Farewell Jack Trengove

    That's sheer bloody rubbish! You obviously didn't see him in his first year
  13. Farewell Jack Trengove

    This might well be correct. I think he is an ideal back pocket, has good footy smarts, reads the game well.
  14. Dom Tyson - Yes or No ?

    A ball kicked to a contest is NOT a turnover . You are plain wrong
  15. Farewell Jack Trengove

    I think he is a class act and highly intelligent. If he doesn't play elsewhere, and I rather hope he doesn't, I hope the club finds a role for him. The fractured foot was not the immediate responsibility of MFC, but I know he made atrempts to return too early, because of our appalling plight at that time.
