    Changes vs Western Bulldogs

    Not that it was a wonderful performance on Saturday but feeling a bit better about MFC this week. It was a solid win. Bringing Frost into the back half has added a bit more of both height and pace. Spargo and Jeff, and Oliver, adds a bit more pace/ nip in the forward half. My view is that if we can get Hunt fit and inform that would add a little more and give us the best chance to complete with the top teams. I know making the 8 is the principal aim but I’m not giving top 4 away just yet. All our rivals are copping injuries. We are in comparative good shape, and things like that count. But the big game will be Geelong at Geelong 2 weeks from now. We must take them.

    Round 12 Non-MFC

    For ———sake leave Watts alone. I hate this carping on every time he makes a mistake or plays poorly. He gave loyal service to our club over a long period in difficult times, he deserves respect. We should just wish him well and leave it at that.

    What were the “off season issues”?

    Jayden Hunt

    I am a little worried about this guy. He is clearly a special talent, ie he can do the amazing things others can only dream about. I don't buy the line that he's just "an athlete" , who is trying to play footy. He's a natural footballer as well as an incredible athlete. He's fast, brave, powerful kick, manic in his tackling, handles the footy like a basketball, etc etc, I could go on. But no doubt his development as a consistent top notch AFL player has to an extent stalled. And that's the problem actually. I suspect he is being so coached about the disciplined things he has to do that they are all buzzing around his head on game day, and his natural ability is being strangled. Hence his struggles. I am not blaming the coaches - its a difficult line to walk, make him do the team first things but without curbing what comes naturally. I'm confident he that he will, in the end, find his way out of his current slump, but he needs extra careful handling. We don't want to lose him.

    Farewell Colin Garland

    One more of the dark years generation gone. I think just Nathan Jones and Jetta left. As for Col Garland, he has been a dedicated and loyal servant of the club. From the success point of view he played in the wrong era of course. But that takes nothing away from what has been a fine career. He gave everything he could. At his best he was a very fine AFL player. He should be very proud of his playing career, as the club is of him. Knowing his qualities, he will continue to serve the club well, albeit in a different way.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Terribly disappointed to see JW leave like this, but it's done, if that's the club decision we should accept it, move on, make it work. As for jack's final message, all class. He is clearly pretty devasted but refused to show any negativity or bitterness. Best wishes to him.

    A bad mistake, pure and simple.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    I think we have all exhausted ourselves going backwards and forwards on this. It's not unlike he endless debates over here about Brexit. Lots of effort, emotion, analysis and argument, but no-one actually convinces anyone, even themselves, and in the end the debate goes nowhere. It's late afternoon here in London, I assume all will be pretty much known during Monday Melbourne time, so it will decided by the time I wake up tomorrow morning. Till then....

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Well that was shameful too. We can stop doing things like that. Keeping Watts is for the greater good. The MFC created the whole Jack Watts messiah fiasco and loaded it onto the shoulders of a school boy, and now wants to throw him out, just when he and the club are finally facing in the right direction. Because of, what? 2 or 3 average to poor games late in the season, after an injury?? Give me a break! To quote a certain ex-MFC coach, who knew more than most about this club and its heart and history, Jack Watts IS Melbourne. We created him as a footballer, for good or for ill, we should stick with him, so that he and we can redeem what has happened over the last 10 years. He is now 26, the next 2 or 3 years are his prime. If he goes elsewhere I'm certain he will do well. Are we going to have to endure him doing well at Sydney , Geelong ( for that a--------e Scott!) or (even worse!!) the Pies?? That would be terrible. I personally could not bear it. And It would hurt us.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    The emotion for and against is largely because the career of Jack Watts has been so closely associated (you could almost say intertwined) with what has undoubtedly been been the darkest period in the long history of the MFC. One the oldest sporting clubs in the world let alone Australia. And that's why it would be such a shame to shut him, and the club, out from the opportunity of some sort of redemption, just when that redemption seems so close. Do people not see that?
