  1. What a pathetic statement....watts at best is a brilliant 3rd forward...wing & at the moment relief ruckman ...he is not a full forward as at times he had to play today against two of the best backman in the league....if we as supporters were told we'd win some amazing games ...lose some winnable games but always be in the game ...you would take it in a heartbeat....like it or not ...we are undermanned ...we are young & we have enormous upside...everyone is disappointed but to bag Watts after today's game is downright ridiculous. They were bigger...stronger...& just better on the day & yet we still nearly pinched it...such an ill informed opinion
  2. I regard myself as a vocal supporter...enjoy a bit of banter & never abuse my own players or the opposition. (Scully excepted & players who commit "dog" acts) ....however I found the Adelaide members very intimidating & the fact that maybe they can drink in their seats as well as the bar & being a Sat night meant I was very quiet. Unless you are in an area with other Melb supporters I for one kept quiet & inwardly gloated. Have never felt like that before .....
  3. It seems the same pattern emerges ...we lose ...half the team needs to be dropped ...we win ...we can beat anyone...we are a long way off our best with key personnel to come back & Hogan and Gawn are crucial...however most teams lose players & need to find a way to win & we did that & did it well...the exciting thing is that winning without star players augers well for the future but we are a developing young team & will still possibly lose another "winnable " game this year.
  4. Check AFL highlights Adelaide v Melbourne ..it is on that
  5. I attended my first game at the Adelaide Oval which is an amazing venue & also extremely intimidating to opposition supporters...namely because there aren't many & also because Adelaide supporters are in a class of their own...I was in the Members so kept a low profile which interestingly allowed me to watch the game a lot more objectively...I have read some of the game forum & some posters comments which were made watching a Tv coverage however watching the game live a lot of these criticisms are unwarranted...a scrappy first qrt in a hostile environment...Adelaide comes back & don't underestimate the noise of the crowd ...it's like nothing I have heard before & then the second half when finally everything clicked ...every player contributed ...obviously we have stars & workhorses but everyone did their job & more ...of course there were stuff ups but honestly Adelaide looked second rate & the crowd around us attested to that ...there will be ups & downs in our season but we have a future ...a bloody good future....just as an aside a few of the Adelaide supporters that hung around were very complimentary about Melb & a fair amount hung around to cheer off Bernie Vince which I thought was a testament to Bernie .
  6. Came over for the match...stunning day in Adelaide....will be in the Adelaide members tonight & looking forward to the Dees putting on a great show ....hoping for a win but pretty confident it won't get "ugly"
  7. I just booked "best available " in the Melb supporters area & got seat on Level 1...prob not great seats but at least with Melb supporters
  8. Wondered how long it would take before it came out....heard about it from a melb former player over a week ago....football is starting to be a lot like reality Tv shows....best not to watch or listen as you quickly become addicted....don't give this latest crap any air !!
  9. I have posted this on another thread ...absolutely gutted...but will not criticise or slander any player ...quite simply cruelled by injuries....lost in the last few minutes...cannot believe that any supporter tries to justify the loss by critiquing individual players ...two key players down before halftime time ..petracca & jones on one leg...everyone take a bloody chill pill ....longest injury list in AFl...should be proud ...heading in right direction!!!!
  10. Don't ...just don't put sh#%t on any player ...down by 2 at half time ..petracca in one leg :.. Nat jones not much better...lost by 2 goals ...longest injury list in AFL....I am completely gutted ...anywhere near our best 22 available & we are 5 zip ..,.dont pick our 20 yr old plus players to pieces !!!!!!
  11. I would be pretty sure there will be no forwards dropped. Spencer in for Gawn & if no further injuries or training mishaps...probably the only change. I'm happy with that.....like it or not we're young & that's the way it is....you watch Adelaide tonight with their big bodied players & you realise what another couple of years will do for our side....Oscar ...20 games ...you persevere because he will get there.....but it won't happen over night .....thank god for a balanced measured coach in Goodwin !
  12. Goodness me .....your non Demons supporting mate ....said "lucky we were playing Carlton" phew better shoot that little nugget of info to the brains trust at Melb ....I mean "really"!! Dom comes in ....pretty much no pre-season form....a little rusty but I share Goodwins comments .."very good" . We played a team who were coached to stop us scoring & so they set up incredibly defensively. A team & coaching panel needs to find a way to play against that....it was the total opposite of last weeks game & although the game wasn't "pretty" eventually they worked it out and got a win. Another great "learning " experience for a young team & that goes in the memory bank for next time. It would be great to run out each week & play the way we are coached but as we improve ..you can be sure as hell..opposition coaches will be coaching to ensure that doesn't happen. I for one am happy to see any win. At the pointy end of the year all you will see is 4 points...not how we got them
  13. But we are talking about pies & tiges ....not the Dees ?
  14. Saints supporters behind me wanted to quote "kill Jesse hogan" when I asked why " he is the dirtiest player behind play" go figure!!! Couldn't give two hoots about opposition supporters opinions.....it is generally the "tall poppy" syndrome. Bernie was never mentioned once ..even after his tap.
  15. Dom Tyson....24 possessions ....16 inside 50's & 2 goals in a very strong performance....Kent 20 possessions & Specer 20 hit outs ....(off AFL website)
