    Misson Leaving at End of 2019

    Well, nobody's perfect. (Except for certain posters not a million miles from here.) We are on our way to being respected, feared, and other good things along those lines. We may have a certain measure of that already. What a long way we have come. Misson is part of that journey and can take a healthy slice of credit for dragging us up from the cellar with his knowledge and expertise. It doesn't just happen. People have to put in. Hard to bag on that. Thanks Dave, for your commitment to a potentially lost cause, and for your part in the club's rise. Good luck, and don't forget to take a warm jacket.

    Jake Melksham extends for three more years

    I was a doubter. I was okay-ish with the deal on a "buy one (Hibberd), get one free (Melksham)" basis. At games I would call out "that's the good one" when Hibberd got the pill. But turns out we got two good 'uns. It's good to be wrong!

    Misson accomplished!
  4. I can't stand basketball but found this very interesting. And reminiscent of something ....... A chaotic style has this high school team topping 100 points — and driving opponents crazy

    New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

    Yeah OK but after Brexit we will relocate to Holland. A permanent base with training facilities to die for. And it's closer to the MCG than Casey.

    Opposition Watch: Rd 1 vs Port Adelaide

    Then after quarter time he'll go back to his old ways and we'll cruise in to an injury-free 15 goal win

    Would that make it twins then? First Daisy Pearce, now Melksham. I hope this isn't contagious.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    On the subject of Jesse Watch, from the bigfooty Freo pre-season training thread... On the sidelines, boom recruit Hogan continued individual skills, running and repeat-effort work in his comeback from a navicular stress fracture. "Jesse's going good. He's started being drip-fed into drills in the last couple of days and he will look to be in full training in the coming weeks," Fyfe said. (Later reports have him on track for round 1.)

    Apology to Glen Bartlett

    This one phrase reveals the entire drama: "chairman of the Melbourne Football Club and also a practising lawyer" Nothing like a letter from a lawyer to make your mouth go dry and temporarily stop your heart beating. The only thing we will have to imagine is the sound of screeching brakes and smell of burning rubber as sweating Langdon immediately threw his rig into reverse. As to what the furore was all about ... dear Karl wrote this in the original article: Langdon said the Demons’ willingness to trade Hogan left questions unanswered. “Why doesn’t everyone ask why Melbourne were so willing to let him go, when on Brownlow Medal night Glen Bartlett declared on 6PR he was going nowhere, he put his house on it,” he said. “They all lie, the industry lacks integrity. It’s disgraceful.”

    Clubs Must Dread This Time of Year - Injuries

    It's the other side of the coin. When a player is on big dollars, and they do a knee in a game, break a leg, or what have you, we say, well, their careers are short, you never know when it's all going to come to a shuddering halt, etc. Good on 'em, they deserve the money, let them capitalise while they can ... Everyone thought the Swans were mad signing up Buddy to a 500 year contract but no-one thought Buddy was mad for taking it. So when you're in a position where a club is prepared to pay you those big dollars, you also have a responsibility to give your best shot at giving them value for money. And the more key the player, the more so. Richmond for example ... up to this season, they structured their whole forward setup around Riewoldt. What would the board have said if he'd gone glacier climbing in Alaska and blew out both kneecaps? I can't hear them saying "well, their careers are short, you never know when it's all going to come to a shuddering halt, etc"
