  1. Umpire Please


    Can anyone else confirm that the MFC put an official “please explain” request into the AFL umpiring department last week after the Port Game? If it’s true it explains the biases performance today from those maggots. I hope we go again because we seem to never win the 50 50 decisions. Not saying we didn’t play well but there were 6 decisions today that gave them goals/ scoring opportunities directly influenced by the maggots.

    Changes v Fremantle

    Concern for me was that when Petty made his mistakes NOT ONE senior player got around him and supported him. Poor leadership across the board.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Hogan on notice. Been in the system long enough and has never produced in a big game. Yes deliver wasn’t there but when has it ever been there for him. He kicks goals against the lower teams but doesn’t produce on the big stage. If he had played one quarter tonight like he did in his first year we would have won even with the worst umpiring I have ever seen. Yes I know many of you will come after me but state facts not just excuses for him.

    GAMEDAY - Round 14

    Let’s face it we were just not good enough tonight. Yes the umpires were [censored] , we had multiple passengers but when we had the chances earlier in the game we didn’t take them. Some of it is inexperience but most is team mix. The coaches and FD picked the wrong team tonight.

    Give me a break. He at least is trying what is Hogan doing?

    No one is having a go. Running that distance is of no use if you are paid to be a goal kicker, he just doesn’t seem to know what he should be doing,

    Not saying he is the problem just that he is out of form. Friday night and a big game is were he should dominating. Instead he is missing chest marks and not reading the play.

    Missing a small forward likeJeffy. He would have got two by now with the amount of inside 50 ‘s we have had.

    GAMEDAY - Round 14

    Is it just me or is Hogan really out of touch and being just a passenger tonight. Might need to go back down to the VFL and ragdoll a few seconds players to get some confidence back.
  10. As a 20year Redlegs Family Member I was very disappointed that the Club has sold off one of the Rooms that our membership level gets to use during our Home Games. We were informed last night that we will not have access to the Lindsay Hassett Room for our biggest home Game against Collingwood on Queens Birthday,because PJ and his team have sold it to a sponsor. The Premium Memberships are up 11% this year and one of the key benefits is the use of this Room which is the main area that we meet up, pay extra and have guests in for the big games like Queens Birthday. We will still have the use of the Jack Ryder Room which can only hold about 400. We have five of our mates who all live in Regional Vic and Canberra(They are all country/interstate members) who come down for this game Every year and we use it as a great catch up day. Now this year there will be less guest passes and no room for us to meet in. There is nothing on the web site or any communication from the club re this, yet they are still selling this level of membership and the benefits it can provide. With our poor start to the year on the ground the club should be looking after all members and not short changing us. My Family membership at this level is substantial, plus the other support we give on game day and through other events that the club holds. I ask all Premium members to email the club and voice their concern. There was some talk in the room last night of staging a protest outside the room ,which would be very embarrassing for all concerned at the club. Looks like the club is putting sponsorship before membership. All of these managers are on bonuses bases on turn over. I have no problem with this as long as it is not at the cost of disenfranchising a very loyal and profitable membership level for the club.

    Changes Vs Essendon

    Sorry but better judges of football talent then most on this site, say we have a good list! As we have had in the past, our problem is developing this talent. So I see it as the coaching not being able to get their message across to the playing group. It started with the camp issue and it keeps building. There is a big break down of communication. Having been to training a couple of times this year, the players don’t run into each other or getting in each other’s way as they did last night and last week. So why on game day? No leadership? No direction? Poor coaching with to much instruction? No clear message? Not sure but they better get it right soon or the season is gone and our membership will be back in 30,000’s again.

    My 3 word player analysis V Richmond

    Gawn -Played Dumb Football
  13. Umpire Please

    Training 19/4

    What I don’t understand is why in the games that Gawn is so dominant in have a signal that the team knows and prepares for and get Max to punch the ball 30-40m clear and have us run into it. Not every bounce but a couple of times a game. I think it was White did that well when he was at the top of his games for us. Just something different and get it out of the centre for us. Thoughts?

    Welcome Johnnie Walker (we all need you!)

    I think many on here are missing the point. They are an event sponsor so what is our B&F Award called The Keith “Bluey” Truscott Memorial Trophy.

    I am expecting to see the players go to the PA on Monday and ask not to play against Hawthorn ever again as its to tough on them, just like they did about THE CAMP. Is that positive enough for you?
