    MFC - the original owner of the MCG

    In those days there was a massive banner affixed to the exterior edge of the ‘outer’ stand , now called the Southern Stand , and in the vivid colours of red and navy blue it read: FOREVER FORWARD DASHING DEMONS , THE GREATEST EVER EXPONENTS OF PERFECTION FOOTBALL. Then, from recollection ,there were some words about how the MCG was ours❤️ It was a huge and imposing banner that adorned OUR ground and we were proud and unforgiving landlords💪

    Dom Tyson - what's wrong?

    Yes he often IS prolific and racks up significant possession numbers, but the next part of the process leaves a lot to be desired

    So is that good or bad? it makes for an interesting sociological experiment

    Sorry to disappoint you.. that’s what a lifetime of AFL suffering does to you, but the photo that appeared in the paper was a little more complimentary , and I AM 65

    I owe it all to Demonland

    Just about my lifelong struggle following actively since 1965 and how my kids have named various pets after former players

    and just to help you work out who I am, I’m sitting next to some guy who I’ve been told played a few games for the club.. Brassi or something
  12. Viney - was just supreme Jones - great second half T.McDonald - a commanding target Melksham - quiet until last Brayshaw - rarely evaded tagger Spargo - quiet but clever Weideman - regularly provided contests Petracca - genius and villain Neal-Bullen - had limited influence Gawn - powerful second half Hannan - was well held vandenBerg - was quieter tonight Harmes - great three quarters Salem - reliable and safe Fritsch - versatility was vital Frost - an important ingredient Hibberd - dashing and inspirational Jetta - grunt and tough Lewis - creative and safe O.McDonald - imbues great confidence Oliver - great despite tag Tyson - excellent last quarter

    Training - Tuesday 11th September, 2018

    Just reported on SEN thatHibberd is doubtful for Friday’s game with a knee injury🤦‍♂️
  14. Jones - led by example Viney - made them cry Weideman - may have arrived Neal- Bullen - tough and uncompromising T.McDonald - great first half Harmes - loved his application Gawn - imposed when necessary Hannan - one important goal Melksham - great forward pressure Salem - was all class Petracca - had limited involvement Tyson - tried and failed Brayshaw - courageous and dynamic Fritsch - was rarely sighted Frost - made a difference Hibberd - dynamic when needed Jetta - limited by injury Lewis - experience was significant O.McDonald - reliable and safe Oliver - a dynamic presence Spargo - tired and overawed vandenBerg - keep it simple
  15. Jones - always in control Jetta - was rarely required Frost - confidence is everything Salem - precise and creative O. McDonald - looked a star Hibbert - loving his aggression Kennedy-Harris - tackling was impressive Oliver - classy and important Gawn - dominated all game Harmes - tough and dynamic Brayshaw - prolific and brave T. McDonald - great first quarter Petracca - always looked likely Kent - can’t take trick Tyson - will be missed Neal-Bullen - kept popping up vandenBerg - a total revelation Weidemann - was almost important Spargo - definitely showing signs Melksham - always looked dangerous Fritsch - was rarely sighted Lewis - perfect general’s game
  16. I’ve watched the replay 3 times and still can’t comprehend how we were awarded frees, or at least not penalized for many blatant errors, despite the howls of abuse throughout the game from an overwhelmingly anti Melbourne crowd. The non payment of a free kick against O.Mac ,when he took on the tackler by dropping his head into an oncoming chest, was just one of many mind boggling decisions surprisingly in our favour. In my conspiracy theory, the AFL contrived a feel good story ending

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Wow, I’m glad there are mods and rules in place to control such personal vindictiveness

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    For all those who are outraged by my personal opinion, I hereby resign from this thread , and thank you for revealing the error of my ways, particularly drysdale demon who’s outed me as a closet Collingwood supporter

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    As always , it’s not the number that are paid but where and under what circumstances they’re given

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Yep, and that’s why I’ve submitted my 3 word analyses every week for 5 years🙄

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    I’m glad I’m allowed an opinion.. what a stupid statement L36
  22. joeboy

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    My point exactly.. and that’s what’s mind boggling considering what’s preceded it

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?
