    Injury List - Season 2018

    Lewis was the victim of a crude tackle from behind against Roos which was dangerous and went unnoticed. I wouldn't be surprised if he is suffering from that more than a 'calf'.

    Preseason Training Week commencing - 05/02/18

    Just a note on Sean Wight: He mastered at least 3 codes... Soccer, Gaelic and AFL (VFL)... He was in the top 10 most courageous of all time (watch his games on a bigger, uglier, VFL icon, Plugger!)... I was at his pre-wake at the Bentleigh Club (Jimmy spoke for him, even though he was also diagnosed at the time) ... His athleticism was stunning, considering his knee reco in his first (maybe 2nd) year... to top it off, he played with authentic Brownlow values (like The Tulip)... consider some of the bullying thugs who have won Charlie!

    AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    I'm really glad AFLW is back.... Like a new GOT series, sometimes folk are disappointed with the first episode, but the final quarter was magnificent! Those that continue to express the need to compare it to the men's game are lost in a time warp! The whole competition is crammed full of inspiring young women; at the summit sits Daisy... a wonderful role model, for all genders! Go Dees

    Maroochydore training camp

    SUNSHINE COAST DAILY by Steele Taylor 24th Oct 2017 10:20 AM additional dates courtesy of club sites AUSTRALIAN RULES: The Sunshine Coast's reputation as a pre-season destination for AFL teams has been enhanced, with Carlton to train in the region during summer. The Blues will hold an open training session on Sunday 17 December at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex... Richmond will hit the Complex for a pre-season training camp, where fans can view the AFL Premiership Cup at their community open session on Monday, January 22. The Western Bulldogs will host an open training session on Sunday 28 January, closely followed by Melbourne, as AFL clubs confirm they will have camps here.

    Maroochydore training camp

    Just a minor point of clarification... the Maroochydore Open Day was on 16th January in 2016, according to my iPhone pics.

    Maroochydore training camp

    I have attended the past two Maroochydore Camps and it usually takes place a little earlier in January. Several AFL clubs compete for times at this facility and it may not have been possible for MFC to get the dates they wanted. Also, Qld Term dates are earlier than Vic schools, so the Qld kids are already back for Term 1.

    Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    Got down to Gosch's today for about 80 minutes... observations other than those already mentioned, Bernie's predicted demise was premature! His ball handling and kicking to position in the conditions was of the highest quality and he was up to speed in the sprints Ditto Lewis Impressed by Filipovic's increased bulk, athletic running and sure hands Jetta terrific in man on man defensive rebound activity Oscar McD consistently effective at spoiling in the arial contests Tom McD had the safest hands in the marking exercises I watched Petracca bustles like a bull and gets what he wants Bugg is looking like best 22 again Lewis an unlikely dead-eyed-dick on the day Oh yes, a bloke called Clayton continues to make the difficult look easy

    Where's Harrison Petty?

    This may be a little petty, but I note that Harrison and number 35 have disappeared off the listed players on the official site... has he been seen recently?

    Where's Harrison Petty?

    Ok... he may be next up!

    Where's Harrison Petty?

    Interesting that the Cocca didn't mention him in the latest list assessment...

    Max Gawn Contract Extension

    Fabulous outcome for very obvious reasons which Max referred to in his press release. Any detractors on this thread would be better suited to scouring the JFK files to find who it was on the grassy knoll... fair dinkum!

    Trade rumours

    This thread certainly identifies which posters I'll bother reading in the months ahead... for that I am grateful

    Farewell Jack Watts

    So much has been said... I didn't think I had anything to add leading up to Jack's transfer. Now I feel the need to say something about the significant contribution Jack has made to our daily football diet here at the MFC. I have met Jack a few times inside and outside of the MFC precinct. He is a model citizen in my opinion. Jack is gifted in the sense that he is intelligent, handsome, and athletic. He is a 'natural' people person. He oozes charm; is a mother's dream as a positive role model for boys.... oh, did I mention extremely marketable! That is my opinion of Jack as a person... as a footballer, sublime skills... can make time switch to slow-motion in tight situations - in my top three deliverers by foot alongside Robbie and Flash! Jack plays football like a basketballer! Andrew Gaze reckons he had a career with the Boomers if he wanted it instead of AFL. This is where the cracks appear! Goodwin doesn't want his team to play basketball (Roos had a soft spot for that skill set). I love Jack and what he brings... I wish him the very best in this next chapter. For Jack there has always been more to life than football. To win a Premiership we need 22 blokes who believe football is everything!

    Goodwin critics are premature...

    I'm not even going to bother to rewind to find who suggested trading Brayshaw.... My advice "Get a grip!"

    Farewell Jack Watts

    Love Jack Watts... agree with all the positive comments made here. I'm keeping it simple.... Jack represents the most obvious means for MFC to improve its list. He has value... a hell of a lot more value than anyone else we would contemplate trading. We will benefit from Jack's impending departure!

    Bernie Vince Re-Signs for 2018

    Bernie is very comfortably best 22! As for kick-ins, don't the detractors watch other AFL teams... all the kick-in specialists stuff up once in a while. Bernie has a few bloopers but offsets this by being a genuine hard nut who can unsettle the star performers in other teams. He probably needs to be relieved of the high-pressure defensive stuff occasionally. Bernie has a lot to offer as a forward (in small doses). Being a competitive beast, he thrives on a challenge. Haters, keep telling him he is washed-up and we'll get another decent three years out of him!

    Casey Demons Development League 2017 premiers!!!

    Thanks KC, you're coverage is sensational! I depend on you and you always deliver. I hope this relationship continues into 2018 and beyond.
  20. Great man Trenners! He will find a place, blokes of that quality are hard to come by. I don't think his playing days are over, but I understand MFC's point of view. About Oscar... he is young. He has some stats that are impressive. His ball use by foot is pretty good... but he is a slow mover, and he doesn't invite physical contact! I'm prepared to wait and see if he can improve on his weaknesses!

    End of year delistings

    Justin Plapp: "Josh Wagner: Josh had 26 disposals, including 12 contested possessions, three tackles and four rebound 50s. After being left out of the AFL team, I thought he was pretty significant in the first half. He was able to get his hands on the ball and link-up. As the game went on, we had to shift him to half-back, where he’s more comfortable. But his game, on a tough night, was solid." Haters... show me the data where someone else who plays this role did better last weekend... for any team!

    End of year delistings

    IMO supporters who claim Vince and/or Wagner should be delisted have no cred. Wagner is sponsored by Demonland FCS! Vince is a recent B&F who brings much more to the team than the occasional turnover!!! I don't have time to list the data... so I guess that makes me a [censored] with an opinion!

    WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    Methinks a couple of Deemomlanders need to revisit some clips of David Neitz! Comparisons with our Tom are taking the pizz, surely!
