  3. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Graham Gaunt Cup....... it is getting towards the end of the week and clearly I have too much time on my hands..... It's a pity we don't have any teams to discuss!
  4. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Ricky Jackson Cup? Cameron Clayton Cup? The more we delve, what a rich history we have......

  6. Post Match Discussion - Round 4

    I am still shattered. Have stayed away from the water cooler and mainstream media all day. At about the15 to 20 minute mark of the first quarter I said to my brother that despite our total dominance we had not converted enough on the scoreboard. 4.4 to 1.0 I think it was. Should have been at least 6 or 7 or even 8 given our total control. Fatal not to convert when you can. We all saw what happened.
  7. Round 4 Non MFC games

    Just as a final aside from last week - I note our friend Clown No 26 has been rewarded with another game in the top flight. West Coast vs Gold Coast. Nice work Umpires Dept.
  8. 2018 Membership Thread

    From memory I think it’s about $220 per adult for the 11 Home Games (its about $1000+ for two adults and a variety of 3 kids/concession. (I am a good dad! Ha!)
  9. 2018 Membership Thread

    Interesting ideas here. I have been a red seat attender for donkeys years and turned that into a home game reserved membership when the new northern stand was built. Always sit with the same Melbourne people in M51. There is always plenty of space to spread out (even on Q’s Birthday) and we always look down our noses at “opposition”supporters who have unfortunately been sold single game day tickets into “our space”. Now, for the first time in all those donkey’s years, I prepare for the ANZAC Eve game, relaxed in the knowledge that me and my family have the luxury of a walk up start and reserved seat. Worth every penny! If the crowd is to be 80-90K as some are suggesting it will be interesting to see how the spare non membership seats in our area are allocated. Nice problem to have. Go Dees.
  10. Round 3 Non MFC games

    Went as a neutral tonight. Wow! What a shocking game. Blowtorch must be on Bolton soon. Bucks buys another month. Sadly, I suspect we must have been this bad 6 years ago.
  11. Round 2 Non MFC games

    Rance exposed (finally)?.
  12. Round 1 Non MFC games

    Interesting the article in the Age today which claims AFL has acknowledged 2 and perhaps a 3rd incorrect decision regarding the 10 metre exclusion zone on Thursday night. All well and good of course. However, no individuals mentioned and I would be suggesting that all three clowns will be running around next week. (Will watch the appointment of former player and now Clown No 3 with interest as he seemed to be the leader of this rule of the week - “dropped to the country”? - no way of course!)
  13. AFLW: Rnd 7 V W Bulldogs @ Whitten Oval

    You can rationalise why certain frees are paid in AFL - “head is sacrosanct” or “ must keep the ball moving”, however in AFLW I have no idea how the clowns pick the frees. The female umpires seem to have a feel for the game, but fair dinkum, where on earth do they get those male umpires from. No idea, inconsistent with absolutely no feel for the game.
  14. JLT Series - Non MFC Games

    Interesting the 3 clowns (22, 7 and 6) umpiring WC vs Freo are Western Australian. OK for a “derby” but I raised this point in round 23 last year when I am sure at least 2 of the clowns (22 and 6) officiated in the critical WC vs Adelaide game which, of course we had a significant interest in. Is there just a whiff of an integrity problem here, especially at grounds or states where the home crowd is the 19th man.
  15. The pre-game warmup is dead

    Maybe.....they could have the reserves as a warm up game to the big game....and maybe they could have an under 19’s comp played on the away teams suburban ground at the same time as the seniors......and maybe they could have a trophy named for the winner of all three comps.... and maybe......nah! it’d never sell.....
