    Injury List - Season 2019

    Very well written post ...I enjoyed reading it ...you will forgive me however if I value the opinions of people involved now with a plethora of medical expertise at their fingertips etc....but hey ..as everybody says ...it’s an opinion based forum...I will be extremely surprised if at least 90% of those rehab players are not available by Rnd 1 ....we shall see . On a sad note ...Sam Docherty has just done his ACL again....tragedy !!!!

    Injury List - Season 2019

    Actually have listened to quite a few expert opinions from AFL fitness gurus off season & they would probably disagree with you ....if they are not getting the running into their legs then you have a valid point so Lever will be def having an “interrupted pre season “ but other than that and as most are players with 3 or more preseasons under their belts ...we are not looking too bad...I am happy to take the opinions of posters that are actually at training & will reserve my judgement until I see the players “up close & personal” ...until then I can’t see the point in continually deriding certain posters ...I mean what is the point ....don’t read them or get down to training yourself & post your “first hand” opinions...just saying !!!

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    JH has considerable issues & that is a fact. Considerable issues. As has been mentioned several times ...what he has had to face as a very young man ....completely understandable so no criticism there... whether he achieves his enormous potential at Freo...we will see. I only wish him well but the MFC are here & now so as much as I hate losing such a unique talent...we will be fine without him. I have a quiet snigger ...when he was at Melb ...always the “go back to Freo” issue & “don’t need him with the emergence of Weid etc & plenty of criticism about his attitude..kicking etc .. now he’s at Freo....”the salvation of the Freo footy club ” I think it is a “win win” for both clubs ...only time will tell who did the better. I thank him for what he bought to the MFC & unlike the defection of Scully”, I will move on pretty quickly & acknowledge the classy way MFC dealt with this .

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Spot on....there are a lot of people close to Jessie who wished he was staying in Melb....however I wish him well as he has gone through so much as a young man, but I am SO glad Melb did the deal.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Might be a reality check for Hogan ..he wanted to explore his options ..we ok’d it & explained how we would use the picks we got for him ..Freo didn’t value him enough ...I now feel whatever happens in the future ...he doesn’t hold all the cards !!

    Harley Bennell

    I remember posting re Balic (who had lived with Bennell ) that we should stay away from Balic ...shot down in flames on here & where’s Balic now ...absolutely don’t touch Bennell !!

    Must address in pre-season

    I was not going to post on the inevitable teeth knashing that was bound to occur after this loss but I hope I am backed up here by other supporters that were at the Prelim...I have never heard or been in a place where the noise level was deafening. It really looked & felt like a gladiator stadium and it was literally boys against men. We have the nucleus of an amazing team but they need to get more games under their belts and bulk up. Yes, Jordan Lewis stuffed up, so did Nathan Jones and many others. We unfortunately put ourselves in the position of having to win games to make the 8, so the last five games or so were mini grand finals. I will never forget that amazing first final against Geelong and to a lesser extent, Hawthorn. We didn’t play well that night and it was a prelude to the following week. We were cooked, it is very hard to keep up that level for so long with such a young team. We now heard about Clayton and there is no way Gawn wasn’t struggling with a significant calf injury. Venders was unsighted, it goes on. As many supporters have said, if we were told we would lose in a Prelim ...we would take it any day of the week. As far as I am concerned, one half of football does not define my view of the team I follow or the club. Compare the WC list & our list & the difference in age, experience etc was significant whilst WC is very close compared to the Pies. I can’t wait for 2019, I’m excited to see who we bring in, not fussed about any players we may lose, except def don’t want to lose Jesse, so lets embrace the season & get out and about for the next season. Also, straight from the players....no mental scarring just a determination for next year.

    My grand final dilemma (carn maggots!)

    Sigh....I am going with my collingwood supporting partner...I was at Perth & saw eagles supporters up “close & personal” ....however I cant abide collingwood..in fact after attending many GF’s....I just don’t care
  15. I love reading these posts...I am a realist but I believe in this team ...I don’t regret a cent of what I paid to get to Perth...after today for me the footy is finished ..zero interest .. no reading or listening to media ..I put that blanket ban on this year & enjoyed my footy much more.... we have the players...game...supporters...farewell till 2019
