    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    Plus ça change, plus c'est la f*ckup

    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    Another way of looking at it. How did we let those two games get to the point where one kick at the death made all the difference? Game of inches, yes. The 6 inches between the ears.

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    The paradox is, without Hogan as a target, there's every chance we WON'T bomb it in

    GAMEDAY - Round 22

    What the .... we need all the skill we can possibly get our hands on. Don't squander any of it before the game! To fulfill the power of the omen you will now need to sacrifice Skye the Paw Patrol dog on an altar made of old Swan Lager cans, Mrs Mac's pie wrappers and Rottnest Island travel brochures, using a sharpened stopper from one of Robbie Flower's old boots.

    I believe he went insane and now spends his days believing that's he's a teapot. If he hears the words "Melbourne" or "Demons" he screams uncontrollably for 12 hours straight. But no one can work out why.

    The Elephant in the Room

    A faux-tough commando cosplay weekend does not necessarily lead to better performance under pressure. Specific mind training can. Bingo! That appears to be the burning issue. Any Joe down the street can talk about how upset they are after a harrowing rd 23 loss, but what evidence is there that they want to do something about it?

    Sports Psychology

    Pretty much. Tension is the great killer and becoming outcome-bound -- specifically fearing the outcome -- introduces tension. (Visualising a positive outcome can help one relax. But that's a skill in itself that has to be practised.)

    If we miss finals with a percentage of 130, we'll all be talking like that, permanently

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 22

    Coffee fanatics were plunging on Colombian Gold Velvet in huge volumes and the baristas had to wind in the price to protect themselves. They made up for it by putting out the price on macadamia and cranberry muffins to an enticing $10.50

    Umpiring v West Coast in Perth

    They can't get simple things right, like kicks that go 15 metres. There is no chance they will do anything about home town umpiring any time soon. But as you say, first they have to acknowledge the problem. So now they're undermining the on field umps? Way to go, AFL. That'll increase the poise and confidence of the guys out on the ground like no-one's biz. How not to run an umpires department, playing out in real life before our eyes.

    Umpiring v West Coast in Perth

    The AFL have lost control of the refereeing, the penalty/tribunal system, and of the rules themselves. And they either don't realise it, or they don't care.

    Wallace Calls Out Goody

    Good lord. There are some shortcomings in the MFC team? How come no-one's noticed? Why hasn't anyone said anything? Thanks Supercoach Terry. Great gameday coach but as for the rest of it .... (Balances out Goody nicely, who seems to be lacking in the game day department. Perhaps Terry could point that one out for us as well?)

    Yes! This American style "pep talk" motivation is long on "rah rah" and short on the concrete things you need to do to actually achieve eg focus and the mental discipline to control attitude. It's entirely possible that every MFC player never gives up, to faces every challenge, etc etc, and we still lose. And then next match, get back up, face every challenge, etc, and lose again. Having the warrior mindset is one thing. It's a step in the right direction but does not necessarily enhance your chances of victory.

    Champion Data Must be High

    From the goal square Why not? Why save all the fun of round 23 miss-the-finals calamities to ourselves.

    Obviously we weren't frantic ENOUGH. On Sunday, we will be even more frantic, attack the contest harder, and bomb inside 50 more frequently, to ever outnumbered forwards. And leave more loose oppo to counterattack.
