    GAMEDAY - Semi Final

    Saw a dead cat bounce of a rebuild last Friday night and looking forward to returning to the G to witness a second tonight. Bury these smug, arrogant pissants Dees!

    some speculation on the Hawks Big Footy board that O'meara might not come up.....

    Umpires this week

    there is incompetence when it comes to AFL umpires and....well....then there's Nicholls and his officiating of MFC games. His sustained bias against Melbourne rules out incompetence (which is random) and leaves you with the unpalatable options of corruption or hatred. I haven't to date been able to postulate a credible theory around corruption so I am left to conclude it is a deeply rooted hatred of the MFC that has a conscious or subconscious manifestation in his match day officiating of MFC games. But make no mistake, it is REAL and he is a cheat. On the flip side, it was pleasing to see Rosebury tell Howe to get up after the push from Caddy. Clearly it should've been a free kick but Rosebury is an experienced umpire who was clearly aware of the niggle being deployed by Howe so let it go. That augers well for Friday night as there'll be plenty more of that from Howe and Sicily as they try it on our young Dees. I hope Aaron smashes the pair of them Jordan Murdoch style....

    Umpires this week

    Margetts was dropped for not paying the foot fend off by Greene..... And I just read on Hawks Big Footy that Stevic is one of them.....so solve for 23!

    Our Holy Trinity

    You forgot Harmes!!!! It will be Harmes v Dangerfield I suspect....he's been in the best form for them and he's possibly a bit quick for Jack.

    Training - Thursday, 6th September, 2018

    Are you just being contrarian to seek attention? Or really haven't thought your way through it? Viney is not returning from a soft tissue injury with the concomitant risk of breaking down in-game if returning too early. He's returning from a stress / hot spot in his foot (toe actually) for which there is a long term implication should he continue to play in defiance of ongoing soreness but which will not be a factor for a four week finals campaign. His core skill set is around the contest for which touch is not a factor. So where's the risk?

    Finals Week 1 - Non-MFC Games

    easier to envisage Hawthorn going out in straight sets than the Tiges so am hoping for a Tiger victory tonight....

    Finals Tickets

    As a frustrated MCC member who can't get MCC visitors tickets, I'll be buying a few kids tickets using MFC memberships that haven't seen a shot in anger all year and then getting pass outs from the MCC reserve in to the public reserve so that we can keep our group together.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 23

    I was there, albeit briefly. Big crowd present, gorgeous morning with a spring feel in the air. There was a noticeably positive vibe amongst the whole group. The focus during my time there was on skills with one drill involving a coaching staff member throwing the ball at a player whose task was then to side-step a tackler, brace for the tackle, fire off a handball to a team mate whilst being tackled whose job was then to snap for goal (Goody was running a session about 25-30m in the fwd pocket). The rehab group had Viney, Hunt, Joel Smith and Baker in it and all seemed to be moving well. Viney didn't join the main group in the time I was there. I don't believe Hibberd was present at all. The only guy who looked to be disinterested and going through the motions was Dion Johnstone. It's previously been commented upon that he's unlikely to get a contract next year.
  12. Swans with Sinclair, Eagles with Lycett and GWS with Lobbe......yawn. Give him a rest for a week or two and get on with it.

    What they're saying over at West Lakes

    Deespicable, in the footy I grew up watching, it's not a free kick. But my biggest gripe with AFL umpiring is around consistency of interpretation and on that score, the process applied and the resultant free kick was at least consistent with what they've been doing on the unrealistic attempt front this season.
