  1. Ultimate Footy 2018 Norm Smith League

    @poita - how are things looking for the Ultimate Footy League for 2018?
  2. Who plays in JLT v North Melbourne 24/2?

    Training hard over pre-season is one thing, but having match fitness and shaking off the 'rust' is another. Players still need a few games of footy to get themselves going, and these two JLT games will do just that. It's why we are aiming to play our strongest sides over the next fortnight in readiness for the Cats in Round 1.
  3. That is a rip roaring training report, DJ. Fantastic stuff!
  4. *cough* Ryan Ferguson *cough*
  5. Viney on Track for Round 1

    Considering the Demonland medicos had him pencilled in to return in June, this is terrific news. I must admit I'm surprised the Demonland medicos got it wrong, as that's never happened before...
  6. Christian Petracca Re-Signs Until End of 2020

    Another positive step forward for the club. We all know what a fantastic player Trac is, but he is also a terrific person and just the sort of personality you need at the club. It's more great news for the MFC and I can't wait to see him tearing it up through the middle this season and beyond!
  7. 2018 Membership Thread

    If we're complaining about the type of letter we get in our membership pack then we are really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Get your membership card? Good. Supporting the club? Great. The rest is totally meaningless.
  8. Who plays in JLT v North Melbourne 24/2?

    No doubt that we go in with the strongest possible 25 we can field. With only two practice games we need to get the run into the legs of those who will be lining up for us in Round 1. The years of blooding youngsters in the JLT is behind us - with only two games to play we can't risk giving the kids a run for the sake of it. I think Fritsch will get a look in, but others like Baker and Spargo will probably miss out, which I'm fine with. I want us ready and raring to go in Round 1 so we can smash the handbaggers and get out finals tilt underway in style!

    I think we are both in exactly the same spot - I'm just looking at what he brings to the side, you're looking at what he doesn't. Between us we have it covered.

    That's fine OD. I wasn't trying to make him out to be a star or some sort of game changer, but I still think my point of him being a handy player to have on our list is fair. His kicking can let him down but he has a knack for getting shots on goal (notice I didn't say he always kicked them!) and he can play that defensive forward role quite well with the odd stint through the middle. Again, he isn't a game changer, but his efforts during the middle part of the year is an indication of what he can bring to the side.

    Buggy is the perfect player for us - he may only be pushing on the fringes of our best 22, but he's a super depth player to have on our list. After his indiscretion last year it sounds as though he has done nothing but work hard over the summer to regain the respect and trust of the FD and the players. It's easy to forget that he was in terrific form for us in the middle part of the year and I see no reason why he can't do that again this year. If others have moved passed him then that's great, but when he does play you can be assured of a few goals and 100% effort all the time. He's a handy player to have at the club.

    Somehow this evens things out for our loss in the 1988 Grand Final, and I'll go out on a limb and say tonight's game is more important. I might have knocked the concept last night but, let's be honest, it's the best thing the AFL have come up with in decades.

    Melksham also looking very sharp. Could be a weapon for us up forward this year.

    All jokes about the concept aside, Fritsch will play senior footy at some point this year.
