    MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 18

    I’ll never forget a game Dad and I attended at Kardinia. I would have been in my early teens at the time (so comfortably over 20 years ago now). We had been down at Airies Inlet for the weekend at my uncles house (he goes for Geelong of course), we had had a great weekend of spear fishing, walks on the beach and mountain bike riding through the back blocks up on the hill. We were standing on the gravel hill on the Moorabool St side of the ground, amongst a bunch of Collingwood’esk type supporters of the hoops. Now, as anyone knows, when faced with such surroundings, it is prudent to keep things pretty cool and not get carried away with your supporting. This we did and were very civilised all game. Unfortunately we lost the game and were stollling across the oval after the game had finished to get to the car park only to be affronted half way across by another Dad and his son (who would have been about 8-10years at the time). This Dad was clearly in a rage about something and was hurling some seriously obscene abuse in our direction from about 10m away, Dad gave a little bit back but but was very reserved probably taken aback that a bloke with his young son would be so eager to use the c, f, s words and every other profanity you can mention at full voice. One can only assume that he had some sort of problem and was struggling with something that we can only imagine. We still talk about it today and shake our heads in disbelief. That young boy would be in his late 20s to early 30s today and I wonder what would have become of him. Would he follow in the footsteps of his Dad and use footy as an outlet for his inner rage or would he have realised that his Dad was a [censored] and have disowned him years ago? Who knows. What I do know, is that in years gone by I always dreaded playing Geelong anywhere, but especially at Kardinia. But this year, I am not the least bit concerned about playing them there, instead I’m glad it’s there and not at the G. Time will tell if my confidence was misplaced. Please Melbourne, bring your A game and get the job done. You’ve put us through many years of pain and suffering, now it’s time to realise the potential and shut that bloke from 20 years ago up! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    MFC025

    The plot thickens!!! Perhaps regos are cheaper in NSW and he’s saving a few $$$? Or plates weren’t available I’m VIC?

    Who else do we realistically target at season end?

    What about we aim to recruit that Troy Pannell bloke? Seems like he playes for every other team we verse when he’s on the ground!

    Who else do we realistically target at season end?

    True, but they have to be prepared to pay what they offer because we could easily just so no thanks after that rather than offer a pick

    So we would not have to trade anything, unless Eagles are willing to match our offer at which point it would be upto us if we wanted to throw a trade into the mix which I would image we would not/could not. It all comes down to whether the Eagles can or want to match out offer. If they don’t, trading picks doesn’t come into it.

    I think it’s been mentioned before, but I don’t believe you have to trade anything for a restricted free agent (just have to make him an offer which WC can elect to match thus effectively locking him in at WC) or unrestricted free agent. (I could be wrong though?)

    Losing Jack Viney

    If you look at current ladder position, we lost to 2 top 8 sides both with him in and out of the team. And beat 0 top 8 teams both when he was in and out of the side. if you look at ladder position at the time the game was played we won 1 game against top 8 sides with him and out of the team. And lost to 2 top 8 teams when he was in and out of the team. So on all measures there is no difference

    Losing Jack Viney

    For all those predicting doom and gloom and saying this will cost us etc etc We won 5 out of 8 games with Jack out of the side, and 5 out of 8 with Jack in the side this season. Seems to me will manage just fine for a few weeks in his absence.

    Monday Night Blockbuster R23: Melb v GWS?

    Heheh, I had to look at the 4 fixtures I have on the fridge at home to notice that too 👍 Just taking it one game a time here

    Monday Night Blockbuster R23: Melb v GWS?

    Hahahahaha surely you jest? Carlton, Hawthorn and Essendon are more of a chance than us according to the mystical formulae channel 7/AFL use to determine who gets that time slot. Besides, we play in Perth on the Sunday prior to that, so I would much rather play on Sunday arvo that week.

    My 3 word player analysis V Bulldogs

    Frost is really bugging me at the moment, he does all the hard stuff well, then kicks it with pinpoint accuracy to the opposition.

    POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 17

    It’s funny because at the game it looked more like 40k, was a little surprised when I saw the 30k flash up on the screen. Sounded like 20k though, even with me going off my chops in the first half

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    It’s ok, my wife’s family all support dogs and hate razor more than we do (and think he hates the dogs in return) so it will be quite the conundrum for ‘ol (insert favourite insult here)!
