    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    I'm not certain he actually requested a trade.His management said that he was happy with either outcome

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    He is not "still quite a player" he is a hell of a lot better than that! And May is no worlbeater. His game against Dees recently was awful and he is a hothead club should leap in and offer Jesse a new minimum three year contract. I am delighted by this development

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    His problem is that he is an inside midfielder, pure and simple. He's not a wingman. with Clarry, Viney, Brayshaw, Harmes, Jones in the team, Tyson hardly got into the middle. I like him a lot but can understand that he might want a move to a team who need a mid.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    Well , as you were at the game you may be able to explain something. Why did our blokes repeatedly fall over especially early in the game. The falls at critical times cost us several goals. Yet the WC guys barely fell at all. We must have had the wrong stops or whatever they use. It looked as though the ground had been sprinkled an hour before the match, but I doubt this! Is it just a layer of new grass?. A hard 15 minutes workout on the surface a couple of hours prematch surely would have alerted everyone to the problem.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    I guess Richmond supporters will reach a similar conclusion? Miles behind at half time, lose by more than 6 goals. Team must be rubbish, time to rebuild!!! What BS!!! we made a series of errors in the first ten minutes , gave them an opportunity and they grabbed it with a huge supportive crowd behind them. If we played WC next week at the G I would back us.. Add Hogan Lever ( and Fritsch) , there is not much wrong with our team.

    At present I would give him a contract for next year . Fills so many gaps

    Jetta and LeCras

    Only one problem with this! LeCras was on Fricht, not Jetta

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    Of course he was. But if there is variety in the approach, if you hit up short targets when available, but kick long to the top of the square when it's the best option, what is wrong with that? Finding it v hard to accept the criticism having regard to our percentage. Remember what store Roos placed on percentage when he came to MFC

    Melbourne and Matthews

    Don't know about that, but in a practice match at the G in the early 1980s he punched Laurie Fowler in the head when the ball was at the other end of the ground. Fowler concussed, carried off, Matthews jogged away and joined in play . Melbourne supporters who saw it were screaming but no cameras , no action taken. Fowler was no angel but his aggression usually was in the heat of the play. This was unprovoked, as far from the play as it's possible to be well done Ross McMullin

    We definitely need someone! Can't believe the match Committee has left us so exposed this year.

    Really? Almost all of our rivals have far worse injury lists

    Round 23

    The fact is that every match in the last round with bearing on the finals should be played at the one time. This happens in The Premiership in UK soccer, even in the lower division , the Championship. It happened in the recent World Cup when the last matches in the Group stage were played at the one time. No one should have the advantage of playing later than its competitors . Last year, sure, we were responsible for the loss to Cwood, but even then we would have made the finals if results had gone as expected. Before the Cats v GWS match was played on the Saturday night ( remember, until then GWS could still have finished top of the ladder) WC were heavy odds against to beat Adelaide in the last match. But as it became plain the Cats would beat GWS, the odds on Adelaide blew out. By 11 pm WC had become favourites to beat Adelaide, who no longer could lose top spot. And so it transpired. Adelaide left a couple out, WC knew EXACTLY what it needed to do. And we missed out effectively by a couple of goals. Situations such as these actually lead to corruption , and I'm not talking of betting. The top side may rest half its best players. Sure, if by the last round they must finish top, nothing can be done to prevent them from treating the last match with little interest. But if it's only in that last round that final positions will be determined, then no-one should be given the very real advantage of playing last. One other matter. Many here will remember the last round of 1987. All those matches played at once produced the best season finale I can recall.

    Post Match brawl

    Dead right! Studies show that domestic violence is worse after football ( of all description) games are completed . This validates the studies
