    Training - Wednesday 16th January, 2019

    A common misunderstanding. One's work ethic has a direct correlation to their aerobic capacity (or any fitness component for that matter). Guys like Viney and Jones have become some of our strongest runners. Players that weren't considered elite runners before they came to the club, but are now through sheer determination and will. So it's actually completely between the ears. You're right that Trac may never become an aerobic beast. But not for the reasons you think. Trac could become anything if he adopted the same mindset as someone like Viney. I'm sure everyone has heard about the story of Ablett before he reached greatness..

    Operation Re-Sign 2019

    I think you'll find that many of those 27,000 have been back on board for the last two to three years. Sure there will still be a handful, but not 27,000. That would be silly to assume.

    What's up with Gus?

    For all the improvements the club has made, I've got to say that this is still an issue for me (and other supporters). It's odd enough that there's been no word from the club regarding Gus given he's missed multiple weeks of full training. But what's even more baffling as big red pointed out is that the MFC publish a full article regarding Brayshaw's unique training program on Christmas day, only to end it by saying he won't be completing it this year with absolutely no word on why. Amazing that things go seemingly unnoticed by the MFC. [censored] me off to no end.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Hogan may never reach his potential, you're right. But that'll have nothing to do with a 'laziness' or 'arrogance' as you suggested in your sentence below. "While I wish Hogan all the best and still think he will be an okay footballer, he screams of Watts and Sylvia 2.0. All young players oozing with talent (and taken at high picks) who drank their own cool aid before putting in the hard yards to become the champions they all had the potential to become. " No, it doesn't go without saying. It's at the very centre of this debate. Ones perspective on life changes dramatically after experiencing the death of a parent at the age of 22. I can't begin to explain how much you're underestimating that.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I agree with the premise of your post. May will be huge for us and is much more of a need going into next year in comparison to Jesse. However, I question a few points you've made. To compare Hogan to Watts and Sylvia is completely ridiculous given what Jesse achieved in his first year at AFL level and the fact that he came back to pre-season at our club in unbelievable condition on multiple occasions and was one of our strongest runners. Even this year, his start to the year was unbelievable and he was considered by many as being in AA form. Sylvia and Watts never came close to impacting games the way Jesse has. This is without mentioning the fact that Hogan missed a year with a back injury, lost his father at the age of 22 and was diagnosed with Cancer in the same year. Is it really a surprise that some of his behaviour has been a little erratic during the off-season? Should we make mention of the fact that Gawn used to smoke on the way to training, vomited on Tom Scully due to intoxication and [censored] about for a number of years before the penny dropped? Or that Harmes has publicly admitted that up until the 2018 pre-season, he was never in the condition he needed to be in? Or maybe that Jetta needed a wake-up call by being delisted and given a rookie lifeline to seize his opportunity and put the required work in? Hogan has experienced events that some of us don't experience until we're well into adulthood. He is 23 years old, think about that for minute.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    None of that has any relevance to what you were pulled up on. That being; what it is that determines an 'interrupted pre-season'. I don't need to go and ask coaches at training to know that.
