    Changes v GWS Giants

    I don't think they'll replace OMAC, hes had a pretty good season as a whole with some blunders in the middle. I think Buggs papers are stamped but who knows, Spargo does seem tired but he had some good moments and has been playing the system. But, it's a raffle.

    unsure if your post was directed at me Dr as it mentions things from my post, but just to clarify, I have never let my anxiety or frustration out on any player at the games. I usually sit there quietly with radio in ear and cheer the good moments, I use Demonland to vent like many others, but am always supportive.
  5. Looking forward to this one, the lid is off.

    Geelong are interested.

    Ben Cousins arrested on drug charges

    Very sad. What a great player he was, one of the best I've seen. Not sure how he drags himself out of it though?

    Having said this, I just remembered Essendon are into Dylan Shiel, so that may be why also.

    Rd 23: Opposition Watch vs GWS

    Jeez GWS have some depth, even with injuries. They still have Kelly, Shiel, Coniglio, Whitfield in amongst the rest. Himmelberg has been going OK and Lobb in the ruck has been pretty good. Won't be an easy game but think we'll run away with it. A good chance to look at who we can steal off them also, they won't be able to retain them all.

    I have a feeling that Essendon moving Goddard on has something to do with this, hopefully we are still in the hunt? From memory reports had us as one of the first involved, would be disappointing to lose him at the final moment.

    Support Melbourne

    I think I'll support the club how I like and everyone else can do the same. There isn't anyone on this forum who does not support or love the club. For me, over 30 years of paying memberships, constant donations during down times, voluntary work during mid 000's, travelling to every away game interstate which is expensive (until this year). For anyone who questions my support can get stuffed and I certainly wouldn't question anyone else's. Its a football "forum" FFS, not a lovey dovey fan boy page. I will continue to call it as I see it, both good and bad, just as I will continue to support this club until the day I die. Oh and seeing some of my posts were quoted from the Goodwin thread, I called it as I saw it, and it's hard to argue with most of those things "at the time." It certainly didn't stop me attending games and cheering on the boys, just like others who posted in that thread. Weird post TBH. Oh and this post: "Goodwin is coaching a side that is mentally weak, has poor leaders, has no defence, fails repeatedly in big games, finds new stupid ways to lose games we should win, has one manic style game plan with no ability to stop other teams scoring when it matters." Most of it was actually true. Oh and don't forget to counter it with the positive posts where I finally gave Goodwin some credit about changing and am happy for the club to bring in experienced assistants to help him next year. As for support, watch the Dees fans come out in droves for our finals, after what this club has put us all through, I respect the fact that they all keep coming back.

    Sam Weideman

    The spring in his step and leap plus his aerial marking ability reminds me of Jarrad Waite, fingers crossed he turns into a similar talented player

    Chris Judd thinks we celebrated too hard.

    They didn't have any money left to celebrate

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    The club let Jack down, then Jack let the club and himself down, we have now moved on to bigger and better things, all the best to Jack but we have flags to win.

    What they're saying over at Roberts Road

    Good old Den, a long time Dees supporter.
  20. SFebes


    I'm critical of our older players and leaders, to his credit (Jones) he stood up well in the last 10mins after only having 4 kicks to half time from memory. What he did in the last 10 mins though is what should be expected of him each time we play the better teams, after all he is the captain. I thought he was quite poor before that but he needed to step up and did, so too Lewis. Jones' season has been sliding all year and hopefully he gets a chance to hold up the cup in appreciation of his loyalty. Still IMO an average player and poor leader but I'll be cheering him on in the next 6 weeks.

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    keep posting it then!

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    I told you pre-game they were bad. By far the worst supporters in the league IMO. They boo the siren, their own players, umpires....have never heard anything like it before.

    How the MRO can judge force is beyond me. Do they judge by a replay? lol. Always has been a farce.

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    Not to forget Watts has been in the game longer and has 10 years more experience too.
