    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    For me, two essential things. One- deliver well into forward 50- no bombing it long in hope, unless it's for a goal. Two we need to kick straight. Do these things we win.

    Round 15 Non MFC Games

    I've decided I'm going to enjoy the commentary on Flagpies this week. It's still clear that Richmond are the best team, and- on our day if all goes really well- I believe we can beat them. Dees- if we can just get to the bottom half of top four- we may be blessed with finals in Victoria. Long way to go yet- 8 more home and away games. IT IS SO LOVELY TO BE EXPERIENCING SOME HOPE!! GO DEES

    Changes v St Kilda

    Playing on Friday night makes the break between games seem soooo much longer. I found myself wondering who'd been selected last night. ... awe won't know until Friday- STILL two days away ...

    GAMEDAY - Round 23

    I can so relate to all of this. I was 15 in 1987, still remember how amazing getting to the finals felt. And I too know that the world won't end today if the worst happens. There are bigger things going on- believe it or not. Like the fact my father isn't around this time, and all sorts of other things too. Still got excitement building within though. Good to see many other Dees fans on the train.

    Collingwood V Melbourne Round 22. 1976

    It's great to read these memories. I was 4 years old in 1976. Was there in 1987, and only knew we hadn't been in finals since 1964. Fills the black hole a bit- my earliest memories are of Robbie playing in a team that never got near the finals, and hadn't since 1964. So, not quite true. We're there other years between 1964 and 1987 that others remember the Dees being close to finals.

    Changes for GWS

    A fair bt of SEN is a rabble. I listen selectively. The morning crew are terrible, IMO and I don't listen to them. I tend to listen to selected topics or segments via their online content. Most stuff is available an hour or two after it was live.

    GAMEDAY - Round 18

    Yep, and they only kicked 3 goals in 2nd half. To me, that makes how we start today even more important.

    GAMEDAY - Round 18

    What a strange time to start a game of footy. Sat around 2pm. ... Oh, hang on, there's something strangely familiar about this. (In my mid forties, things start to flood back) I remember son, at quarter, half and 3/4 time, filling in the footy record, A v B, C v D etc, taking a tram to this other that suburban ground, the thermos of soup my aunt and her friends brought. ... (Shaking myself back to today) It feels good not to have to wait too long into the afternoon for the game to begin.

    Our Indigenous History

    The MFC website has put up a lovely video acknowledging the indigenous players who have represented the club. It starts with footage of Jeff Farmer, rolls through Jurrah, Davey, Wonaemerri, Jetta and Garlett. It closes with acknowledging (no footage) some of the less spectacular or well known players- Whelan, Bennell, Charles, Pickett, JKH and Newman (female). All in a minute and a bit. Well worth a look. A focus on their football presence, refreshingly.

    Remind me, in what quarter did this happen?

    May I suggest if you haven't yet. ... Regardless of what has happened in your lives, say thank you to him. For being the best dad he could.
