    ANB: Lever building to something "scary"

    Ribbish. It would have been more remarkable if we had not have been injured and we went through the season practically major injury free. It's not like our backline is total rubish without Lever and May. More than enough capability to hold things together between Hibbo, Nev, Salem and even guys like Oscar and Frosty proved they can provide solid defensive options. If we had got desperate, we could have thrown T Mac back there and as it was, I think Max Gawn provided any additional coverage in the air we might have needed. Most teams in the comp would be pretty envious of our backline without Lever and May, but having them there gives us so much depth back there now it's not funny. Competition for spots will be fierce and guys like Hore and Lewis will have there job cut out for them getting a game, but that's a great thing because players so often get injured and fall out of form.

    Same. But in the mean time until we win our next flag, at the end of the day, at least we can take solace that they belong to the inferiour breed that defines a Collingwood supporter and we are not and will never be that.

    50 point turnaround against the Dockers

    Always loved watching Wonaeamirri play. Such a tallent, it's a pitty he didn't have a longer career with us. Don't know if he's still playing for the NT Thunder in the NEAFL or not, but saw him playing against Southport a few years back before a demolition job we did later on the Suns. Bought back fond memories.

    Vanders raring to go

    Fully fit Vanders after what he did back end of last year with very little training base --- Yes Please.

    The copious appearances of gloating Hawthorn supporters in the second video really takes the gloss of it for me. Further until we have actually won a grand final in my lifetime, I don't care how many Collingwood have lost - they have two up on us. Let's hope both those wrongs are righted over the next decade, for Hawthorn to wallow without sucess and the MFC to become truely mighty once more.

    Bernie Vince talks up Tom Sparrow on SEN

    Actually I recon a weekend out on the puss with Bernie (and Max the kiwi) would be the best way to spend some time him. That would be a blast I recon.

    Complacency is Dees Biggest Hurdle

    That was one of the stranger pre-season injuries for sure. Beats knocking yourself out with a brick from your pack. Will be interesting to see if there are any media beat-ups about preseason camp revolts or camps gone wrong this year?

    I don't think Goodwin has a complacency gene within his DNA, a trait he will pass this down to the current MFC team as his football decedents.

    Bernie Vince talks up Tom Sparrow on SEN

    To add some further flavor to this theme, I think it's fair to state that in some respects none of the talent at the MFC in thay era lived up to their full potential, because as a team they failed to bring home a flag. It's amazing how when part of a premiership team makes average players can be perceived as superstars, with some of that praise warranted and parts of it not. Let's hope that Tom Sparrow and many of his current cohort of teammates can be looked back on as premiership players for the MFC one day and then we can truely appreciate any individual brilliance that the contributed beyond that.

    Origins/meanings of Display Names?

    Epson printers (the Stylus in particular) were all the rage back in the day, but don't seem to be as in vogue in 2019. Just a casual observation, no analogy/offence intended @Stylus.

    Bernie Vince talks up Tom Sparrow on SEN

    Right at the end of the Bernie interview they mentioned his partner and him are expecting their first child late Feb. Future father-son/daughter material hopefully. Just need to keep those grubby Crows away from it.

    He was such a strong unit the old Chopper. Loved his time at the MFC.

    1 List Spot still open

    Another year older and another preseason in the gym and hopefully Oscar is a practically a T Mac clone anyway. Also one that can keep playing for a few years after Tommy retires as well.

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    I also like that we have wisely used our low picks well of late on solid compeditive types - Trac, Clarry, Gus. I think there is a higher probability of sucess with this type of player taken at a low pick. ...now if only we had of gone for Wines!
